I was sleeved February 15th at a weight of 228, I had lost 10 pounds the previous week while on a low carb pre-op diet. By mid-March I was around 215, mid-April I weighed around 210, mid-May around 205 and mid-June around 202. So I have been losing very slowly even though I have been very active and watching what I eat. The last 2 weeks has been really odd as I was in Singapore for work and lost .5kg during the week, usually I gain on work trips. Then since being home the last 6 days I have lost 5 pounds. I have not seen this consistent weight loss since the first 10 days of surgery. I am thinking my body is finally giving up on holding onto the extra weight. I kept telling myself that at some point my weight has to go down, my calories are regularly around 900-1,100 calories per day.
The good thing about this slow losing - no one has questioned my weight loss since it appears very slow and natural. Other than my husband no one knows I had surgery and I intend to keep it that way.

Never thought I would say this, but I think I've lost enough weight.
My goal was originally 120 lbs, and I think I'm going to stop where I am (127.3 lbs). I'm about to size myself out of the smallest of sizes of women's clothing and I really don't want to sport a wardrobe from Gap Kids (which, btw, I actually wore this morning...my jacket felt so loose on me and its just a little too cold today to go jacket-less, so I put on the Kid's old windbreaker that she wore 2 years ago: Gap Kids size 12. Seriously. I'm wearing my kid's hand-me-downs. What is happening??)
I don't really understand though why when I was in my 20's, when I weighed less than I do right now, was I actually bigger than I am right now. I still have clothes that I wore in my 20's that I am swimming in these days *scratches head*.
...and since I plan to get some PS done in August, I figure whatever skin they chop off of me will get me down closer to 120 without having to lose any more fat and/or muscle and/or overall bulk.
Soooooo....now I have to figure out how to do the maintenance thing.
