    Surgery is 4/22 down 25lbs but noticed a slow down the last few days. Getting my Protein in but only eating around 550 cal a day.


    Yea I can only eat about 600-700 calories per day. I think the more we can eat eventually the more we’ll lose. But stalls are part of the process.


  2. Hi. I had surgery on 4/15/19. HW 378. DOS 319.8. CW 296.9. I’m happy with my progress. I lost the first 18 lbs in less than 2 weeks and because of the rapid weight loss my body went into self preservation mode and weight loss stalled. But Its moving again and I think its because I am finally able to get in more Protein and calories. I also walk about 2 miles and do a work out video at home about 5 days per week. So be patient. When you lose weight fast and then stop it’s your body’s natural reaction. Good luck!

    Not sure if it’s been asked, just wondering how are the April surgeries doing with weight loss. I had my surgery on 4/11 and just think I should be losing more.

  4. I told a few close coworkers when I felt comfortable in doing so. Of course my husband and kids know. One of my sisters and one of my best friends. I think that’s a lot of people. I’ve been laying low while I’m working on myself, inside and out, because I don’t need any outside noise, especially if it’s going to be negative. And you kinda know who’s gonna be supportive and who won’t. Tell whoever you feel comfortable with and be vigilant in protecting your peace and energy. If someone comes with that BS, stop them and let them know their opinion isn’t needed, in a nice way of course lol

    Mousecat88,




    Awesome results. Any tips for those of us who are waiting approval for the RNY??

    Hi. We are surgery twins! I’m down about 22 lbs since surgery. Looks like we’re losing at the same rate too.


  6. 1. No longer letting food control my life/my life not revolving around food

    2. Getting rid of my big girl clothes

    3. Fitting on rollercoasters at the theme park

    4. Not needing a seat belt extended on the plane/people not looking at me weirdly

    5. More energy to do fun things with my kids

    6. The look on the haters faces when I come through

    HW: 343, SW: 307, CW: 284. I had RNY on 4/15/19. I feel like I'm losing weight so slowly, but seeing what everyone else is experiencing, am relieved that this is more average than slow. I am glad so many of you are sharing your experience. It really helps out things in perspective.
    We’re surgery twins! HW: 378 SW: 319.8 CW: 300. I lost a majority of that weight the first two weeks then it stopped/slowed at weeks 3 & 4. My nutritionist said it’s normal and that my body will go into self preservation mode throughout the process due to the rapid weight loss. I can fit comfortably into clothes that were uncomfortable or unbearable to wear before and I feel good. I went from a 28-30 to 22 already. I’m super excited to see where I’ll end up. This journey can get frustrating but I can’t rely solely on the scale to measure my progress.

    Nice! Did you hit a stall like I did? Because I had lost the first 18 lbs so quickly I hit a stall at week 3. My nutritionist said it’s my body going into self preservation mode. I stopped weighing myself daily and weigh in weekly. The scale finally moved (weighed last Sunday) and as of that day, I’m down 20 lbs all together.


  9. I also never thought I was as big as the scale said but I was really big. One day I looked in the mirror and got disgusted with myself. I’ve lost 78 lbs since my highest weight, 20
    Of which post op. I can see the difference in my body and clothes. I definitely agree with you that my body dysmorphia contributed to me being in denial about how big I actually was.


  10. My heaviest was 378. I was 319.8 the day of surgery, 4/15/19, and now I’m at 300 even. I often look for other women who have the same stats as me to see what their experience is because I do feel like it’s different for the heavier girls like me. I know there are other factors that play a part like age and hormonal things. But for the most part, I feel good about my progress and look forward to continue working toward my goal weight of 185.
