    You are doing great, Fizz! 🔥 I’ve slowed and stalled off and on but made it into onederland as well! I’m at 192currently, so 80 lbs down!! I’m leaving for a cruise on 9/7 and wanted to be 180, but like you, that seems like a steep goal this far along. Lol Definitely not losing at the pace I was. BUT I’m also not exercising, other than walking my dog. Maybe if we both kick it up a notch we will surprise ourselves? I’m game! I bet Spain was fantastic! It’s in my bucket list for sure. Where did you guys go?

    I find I can drink/tolerate more when it’s something flavored like vitamin water zero vs plain water. My hubby says it’s all in my head. Haha. But it seriously physically feels different when I do! 🤣

    I weighed in at 204 today! 67 lbs down! My daughter is getting married in Vancouver, BC on 7/13 and my goal is to be under 200 by then. 🙏🏼 I’m actually not going to absolutely hate dress shopping for once in a very long time! 🙌🏼

  8. Any ladies out there have success with building muscle/toning arms? Looking for the best exercises to do to try to get rid of my batwings. Or at least make them less noticeable. Before and after pics would be appreciated as well! Show your progress off! Thanks!

    Batwings Be Gone! 🦇

    Haha thanks, guys! I’m hoping to work on mine and then just live with what I end up with. But it’s tough, before I gained weight I always loved my arms! Kicking myself! The past 7 years of gaining did a number on them! 😞😞🤣

    Hi Neely, doing well. Looks like you are doing awesome! Congrats! I am stalled right now which has me concerned even though I know its all part of the process. Still working on getting my brain to get on the same page with my pouch Thanks! I’m definitely slowing down. I’m sure a stall is in my future, but so far I’m pleased! Keep pushing through and I’m sure you will break your stall soon. It’s definitely a mental struggle, like you said. You will prevail!

    Vitamin Patches

    My....Reeboks...just arrived on Monday! 😆 Super excited not to have to stomach the nauseating pills or powder. Enjoyed reading your comments, it made me pull the trigger on my order. Looking forward to seeing my lab results!

    Welcome! How is it going for you?
  13. Hey! Seeing this a little late, but Dr. Bagshahi (Bagshahi Bariatric in Fort Worth) is amazing!! He specializes in complicated revisions and also does the duodenal switch. He actually does the DS in one surgery rather than two separate surgeries like some do, if possible. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and did his surgical internship at the Mayo Clinic. He did my sleeve in March and my husband’s last week! Very thorough. Love him!

    I’m so sorry, I know it’s discouraging but I’ve read many posts just like yours. One lady stalled for 2 months and then all of the sudden the weight started coming off again. It is true that everyone’s body is different. Have you had a follow up with your nutritionist? I’ve also read many that said they had to find ways to intake MORE calories before they started to lose again. Your body may be in starvation mode since you can barely eat, and it’s storing whatever it can. A couple of people said they were not losing at 800 cals a day and then increased to 1000-1100 and started losing again. Hang in there!! You already did the hardest part (making the decision and going through with the surgery) and are obviously willing to put in the “work” now. Talk to someone experienced and I bet they can help you. I’m pulling for you!! Also, my stated loss includes my 8 day pre-op so it’s not just since the surgery. I think I lost 12 during the pre-op diet. 👍🏼

    55 lbs down and I can really tell a difference! My face is so much slimmer. Happy, happy, happy! Ready to keep losing!

    What is everyone eating these days? I’m officially 8 weeks out and honestly, I don’t eat much at all. Lol I’m not complaining because I’m losing (53 lbs since I started the pre-op diet!) 🙌🏼🙌🏼 But I just wondered if others were able to eat more. I eat about four bites of something and I’m done. I can only do my Protein, I can’t imagine having any room for veggies. Lol is this normal? Haha Hope everyone is well!!

    How big are the capsules? I may want to try this! My barilife pills were HUGE and taking 3 twice a day was impossible. For me, at least. Lol

    I will look into that one! Thanks!

    Hey guys! I hope everyone is doing well! I just popped in to ask what kind of vitamins everyone is taking? My dr suggested Barilife but the powder is nauseatingly sweet post surgery lol. I tried the pills but they are huge and I’m supposed to take 3, twice a day. Ugh. Looking for other options.

    Pounds lost

    6 weeks from sleeve and 45 lbs down. But that includes my week of pre op diet so technically 7 weeks.

    I wish I had thought about those wraps! I only had one incision that really hurt longer than a couple of weeks though, and mainly when I bent down. But everyone does heal differently AND it can also have to do with how large your incisions are and how much your surgeon had to do “in there”. I was surprised at how small some of mine were! I hope you get some relief soon, it’s certainly a process. But there is light (and you will be lighter!!) at the end of the tunnel! 🤗
