    Here On Out A Win, Win

    Thank you so much, you are always encouraging!
  5. So, today I had my appointment and I am currently at 181.2 lbs, 34" waist, BMI 27 and feeling great!!!!!! I have one more appointment in December and I will be a year out! The question asked of me today, "You want to know how to stop losing the weight?" I thought oh, my goodness yes! I have had clothing altered, not once but twice, I have had my wedding ring resized twice and refuse to do it again! I am so grateful and happy about my weight loss but I am afraid I will not stop losing! I was encouraged to eat good fats, olive oil, avocados, nuts, more fruits, protein, carbs and whole grains. Even the thought of drinking a protein shake makes me gag, I find them way to sweet and I have tried all flavors that I thought would be tolerable for me. (PremierProteinShakestobeexact) The funny thing, I have already been doing this and still losing weight. I hope it comes to an end soon! I don't want to start looking emaciated. Any suggestions? #stilllovingthenewme

    I too after having RNY found myself buying quite often so I took my favorite clothing to a seamstress and had them taken up, funny thing I took a few skirts to her and only two weeks later could not fit what she had taken up and she was kind enough not to charge me to alter them again! I am currently 9 mths out and refuse to buy any thing. I too work remotely and work in sweat pants or pj's most of the time! My other clothes I gave them away and they were donated to women being released from jail/prison to have decent clothing for interviews.

    IBS and RNY

    Hello, I was diagnosed with IBS-C, I do not have any issues with the constipation anymore, I also use to take Linzess but I do not take that any more! If you are not careful of what you eat, you will have dumping syndrome and I have also noticed that if I am not drinking my water like I should it will slow down my bowels, but I really do not believe I have anymore issues with the IBS. Good luck and hope this helped!

    7 months out, "Touch Down" Goal Met

    LOLOL, Thank you so much! I will have to change from football to basketball then, I will gladly rebound! LOLOL Thank you so much for the insight!
  11. I have reached my goal weight and was wondering how and when will the weight stop coming off! I have lost my boobs, butt and walking hasn't helped with building it up! I love the new me but scared I am going to look like Olive Oil from Popeye before it's all over! My last visit, I discovered the passing out episode was d/t blood pressure dropping to low and all of my blood work came back FINE! I am currently now in a 12 and wearing size Med in my capris! Again, I am so happy with my New Me but will I every stop losing the weight!? I am up for any suggestions, for my athletic bariatric family! Thanks in advance!

    Feel So Good Part 2

    Right there with you, I am hoping to get rid of my BP medication all together! I went today and replaced the mirror I had broken and she was so happy to see me doing well, she also told my I was just inches away of a 911 call! LOL Like you I have never had BP levels that low and when I went to the doctor's office the day before the incident it was around 122/70 somethingish and that is why he reduced it to half! I also have never had any blood sugar issues. I promise I will not forget again because I went through my 90 day supply which I probably had 60 of them and cut them in half with my pill cutter, everyone of them! Thank you for the response!

    Feel So Good Part 2

    Thank you so much for the insight, and yes, I thought dehydration as well! But I have been getting my water in and some and monitor my pee color (sorry TMI) and it is not clear but very light yellow, but great information and so glad you are doing better as well!
