    I finally hit 199.8 after 5 days stuck at 200.1, so I’m happy about that. Only 54.2lbs till goal, lol.

    Sheribear, let me join the chorus of those saying how great you look. The difference is quite obvious!
    I'm traveling to see family for Easter (none of whom know I had surgery). I know that I'm just "passing through" this weight on my weight to my goal weight, but I thought a few new items were in order. I was wearing a 40 (very tight) or 42 (comfortable) pants before surgery, and I fit relatively easily into a 36 today. Woo-hoo! I was also able to look at "large" shirts, which has far more selection that XL or XXL. This means more to me than the number on the scale!

    Yeah!!!! This morning I weighed and the numbers finally moved. 200 even! Next time I weigh I should be in the “ONE HUNDREDS” I am so excited and so far it is the happiest 2.5 pounds I have ever lost! 👏👏😁

    Hi folks been a while.

    i figured I’d check in let you know what I’ve been up to and tell my story.
    Start with Stats:
    5’9”
    surgery date Feb 20th
    surgery weight 255
    today’s weight: 208
    47lbs gone forever.

    Activity levels. I’ve been hitting the gym lifting weights for 20-30 min a day every morning.
    Now, you guys aren’t going to like this part. After 3 weeks liquid diet I went straight to high fat low carb Keto diet eating solids meats. Mainly grilled chicken, steak, sausage etc. I emphasize high fat low carb. I average max 50 carbs a day from any source, period. That includes sugars and veggies. I have coffee with half and half every morning. I eat Protein via meats, nuts, and supplements primarily. Daily calorie intake is 600-800.
    I weigh myself daily, and log the weight to track it religiously. I expect to have lost 50 lbs prior to my appointment with the surgeon next Monday.
    I don’t have so much of a goal weight, but goal measurements. The below pics are me 7 years ago prior to changing jobs and becoming more sedentary. I weighed 200ish lbs back then. I don’t have that level of muscle anymore, but the goal is to get back to being as fit as that, but much smaller. There is no way I’ll ever be able to eat the calories required to be that big again.
    Point of all this is to say, everyone’s journey in this started and will end in different places. Make the beSt of the choice you made, and know that there is always a way, when you have the will to make the change.

    Stay positive, stay healthy, and make smart choices.

    Hi Feb Buds,
    Last night I had a horrible experience. My daughter and I ate at a Mexican restaurant and I ordered a chicken quesadilla. It came with melted cheese on the outside of it, refried Beans, pappas (like a mashed potato), guac, and sour cream. I ate only the cheese off the quesadilla dipped in the guacamole and a tiny amount of sour cream. I did not eat the tortilla part. I also had two bites of the refried beans, two small pieces of chicken and two bites of the potatoes. I quit then before I felt the pain in my solar plexis so I didn't overeat. Two hours later I felt extremely flushed, hot and needed to throw up. I only could dry heave. I did that for about a half hour with a cold wash cloth to try to cool down. It was horrible. Is this dumping syndrome? Do you think the melted cheese was too greasy? HORRIBLE feeling.

    The scale is a hater. On Tuesday, I took my daughter to Texas to look at four schools. We were go, go, go every day and I averaged almost 14,000 steps a day treking all over college campuses. We just got back from the airport and I weighed myself. Down a measly 2 ounces. Seriously!!!!!!! How can that be? I am so disappointed. My deductive reasoning is telling me that exercise does NOT pay off. Harumph!

    Terrific! Great job! My doc says that walking is very important to avoid blood clots! Today is my one week anniversary for bypass. I went back to work on Monday. I have a desk job so there's no strain on my abdomen.

    sallie Lindsey reacted to ajallen in How’d you Choose? Sleeve v.s. Bypass?   
    I went for a bypass because I didn't think a sleeve would work for me, I looked at both options for a long time and in the end every one has different reasons for choosing one or the other, I needed two hip replacements, My starting weight was 338lbs. and I am now 176 lbs in 15 months. I have no problems with dumping syndrome or Absorption I take Vitamins every day which isn't that bad and my last blood test was good. I am very happy with my decision and feel a lot healthier and happier.

    My doctor wouldn't do the sleeve on me because I have reflux disease not well controlled by meds. He said the sleeve would make the reflux worse. In addition, i preferred the bypass because although it seems more drastic, i think for me it will be more effective. Having bypass 3/27/19.
