    What was your early weight loss like?

    Everyone has their own method... I personally weighed everyday and it was good to see the numbers go down everyday. The first 6 months the weight flew off me it was so good to see.

    What was your early weight loss like?

    I was kinda obsessed with my weight loss and was weighing daily; I was losing weight everyday it was crazy the first month but I assume it was a ton of fluid loss. I lost like 20lbs in the first 2 weeks and by one month I was down 38lbs; the first 3 months was insane and I lost all my excess weight by 8 months.
  4. Bypass here but results are very similar between the 2. My weight fell off very quickly for the first 6 months and hit maintenance at 8 months. Lost all my excess weight..

    What did you lose -- than just weight?

    No longer take a bunch of pills for diabetes or high blood pressure. No longer get puffed out just bending over. No longer have to rest while vacuuming. No longer have to shop in the MR BIG section. It's great to look and feel normal

    Is anyone else as disappointed...

    So it's fine for people to b***h and moan about how unhappy and unsuccessful they are? Yet it's not okay for people to feel good about celebrate their own achievements? I'm just over seeing all the negative posts and people continuously slacking or cheating then crying about their lack of weight loss? You can only blame yourself! So stop slacking off
  12. Well there's more than just sleeve these days; but you have to ask yourself a few questions. How much weight do you need to lose? Do you suffer from reflux or gerd? Do you have diabetes? 45.7 is quite high I would look at the bypass or even DS

    Have lost way too much weight

    @Arabesque totally understand. I'm male 6ft tall I've been maintaining between 74-75kgs; I never thought I'd get this low my original goal was like 82kgs. but as you've said there will most likely be some regain over the next few years so I don't mind being slightly under goal weight I'm only 9 months out from surgery so it's still early days..

    Weight gain.....

    I must also be one of a kind who didn't use the "pandemic" as a reason to slack off. I adapted and changed and still kept my weight off....
