  1. My surgery was 7/26 and I’ve lost 95 pounds. During the pandemic I was able to spend more time on the kitchen and also invested in an air fryer, best money spent!! Also I committed to at least 30m a day of exercise using YouTube, free trials from different apps and even cleaning. I missed my last two checkups but I’m planning to go sometime this month. This year has allowed to get reacquainted with myself. I find pleasure in things that the excess weight has taken from me. Happy anniversary to all!!
  2. I’m Day 16 post op. 25lb down. I also started body contour massages and I’m wearing a girdle similar to those used post plastic surgery to avoid sagging skin as much as I can. Still struggling with my daily goal of 60gr of protein.
  3. Wow that’s remarkable!! Congratulations. I had my surgery last Friday July 26. I don’t have an issue drinking the liquids and walking, but I hate the protein shakes, can barely stomach one a day. Any suggestions how to get the proteins in?
  4. Same here. Keep up!!
  5. I’m Day 2 after surgery. No pain, feel tired. Not hungry. Been sipping water, protein shake, tea. Had BM this morning. Walked about 6k steps trying to worm my self up to 10k a day. Don’t know my weight loss yet.
