    Weight coming off too slow

    I started at a BMI of 40. SW was 209. I am almost 3 months out and have lost about 25 pounds. So I have lost about 33% of my excess weight. While this is a lower amount of loss it is the expected percentage for 3 mths out. It is so hard not to compare to others but there are so many factors that effect rate of loss from starting weight, gender, hight, and medical considerations. So I am averaging about 2 pounds a week. I am OK with this rate loss as long as I continue to trend down. Best of luck on your journey and remember to follow your plan, drink water, move, and enjoy life. New_Me 2019

    I am10 weeks post Sleeve. Scale is slowly moving. I have always avoided cameras. Need to purposefully document my progress because I just do not see it. Top is a XL pants are a loose 16. I started in a 3x. New_Me 2019
  7. I am 6 weeks post sleeve. Today I had extensive hemroid surgery. My hope is that I will heal quickly and my body will get back to loosing weight. I am getting Water and Protein in. First 2 weeks post sleeve I lost 15 pounds. Past month I have lost 3-4 pounds. Does this seem low? Could constipation be contributing to slow lost? GVS 210 7/23/19 CW. 192 New_Me 2019

  12. I hope so. Have only lost 7 lbs in 12 days. Just trusting it will come off. I have been increasing my activity, going school supply shopping, buying groceries, etc. I am tender today and moving a bit slow. New_Me 2019
  13. Almost 2 weeks since sleeve, my weight has been stuck for 3 days now. How can it not move when I am only getting 400 cal. a day? New_Me 2019
  14. Yes day 4 I started feeling better. You can do this. New_Me 2019

    Anyone use a CPAP machine?

    Wishing you the best on this journey. A year ago I had no clue about sleep apnea. I have read so many post of people who see sleep apnea as a way to qualify for their surgery. But if you have sleep apnea then it is serious and may or may not disappear quickly. I also have sleep apnea. I have my appointment next month to see if we can adjust or reduce use but I am choosing to not make those medical decisions on my own. Best of luck. New_Me 2019

    Anyone use a CPAP machine?

    Please take sleep apnea very very serious. My husband has severe damage to his heart because of untreated sleep apnea. He spent 3 weeks in CICU for AFIB, Flutter and Congested Heart Failure due to sleep apnea. He is 48 years old. His heart has been damaged and is functioning at a 18% rate. He did not have problems sleeping, he snored! He was not tired or fatigued. Sleep apnea is a co-morbidity because it is no joke and kills. Weight loss often improves or cures sleep apnea. People do not stop using your CPAP without having a sleep study. We did this surgery to have a better longer life. Best of luck on your journey. I hope you take the medical steps needed to have a long and healthy future. New_Me 2019

    Anyone use a CPAP machine?

    I used mine. In fact they even added the oxygen to the cpap. I had to stay an extra night because of low oxygen levels. New_Me 2019

    Thank you for being brave and posting your beautiful pictures. They have given me so much hope. I am one week post op from sleeve and beginning to look like a Mrs. potatoes head. My face is slimming down. I notice my wrist and feet look slimmer. And then I see the blob of my stomach. I look strange. I am excited about this journey but this thread has helped me keep my eye on the prize as I have my endless supply of protein shakes and faith that my body is doing the work. Thank you. New_Me 2019
  20. One week post op and feeling good. Drinking not a problem. Struggling getting my walking in cuz it is so HOT outside (105 today). Walking around the house and in the evenings. I hope everyone's journey is going well. New_Me 2019
  21. So I had to order new small bands for my fitbit because the original was sliding all over the place. New_Me 2019
  22. I cannot believe how long it takes to drink my protein shake. New_Me 2019
