  1. Just a couple of lbs but I have been stuck so long feels like this might be it. Any advice
  2. Actually going to a school reunion today - without making up an excuse for why I can’t make it
  3. I am now about 8 months post surgery (and stalled for a couple of months). Here are my stats. Age 54; height 5’3. Starting weight 210; weight lost prior to surgery (on liver shrinking diet) - 20 lbs. weight loss first three months 25 lbs. weight 8 months out - 160.
  4. F , 54, 5’3 ; 14 lbs 188.8 174 159.2 Just at 3 months now
  5. I am in Canada and here the default is by-pass unless they go in and can’t in which case you get a sleeve.
  6. I was feeling a little crummy about my progress (instead of weightloss punctuated by stalls it is more a stall punctuated by a few ounces lost every couple of weeks - and I am only 2.5 months out) and my hair has started falling out - then today I had an ultrasound and the technician asked me to stay while she went back to check that she had the right comparison chart - my liver shrank from 21 to 16 and from severe fatty liver to moderate - so thrilled!! - and a great reminder of why I did this!
  7. My wait was one month from fiat meeting with surgeon - followed by meeting with anesthesiologist (with an additional 4 months of tests, nutritional counselling, social worker, family education session prior to first visit with the surgeon).

    Finally made it to onederland

    You look great!
  10. So weird hearing someone say that’s great - I feel like I hit a stall every couple of days. I have followed the program (though walking now that I have started work is hard). In addition to water and protein goals my team gave me a fiber goal (though I have heard anyone talk about a fiber goal in this forum). Was told don’t worry about calories or carbs - but listen to your body
  11. Had bypass on March 20th. Down 18lbs since surgery. On soft foods. Stall a lot. Good energy. Restless sleep. Blood sugar, blood pressure numbers are way down. Struggle a bit with keeping my fiber numbers on track but still having a daily bowel movement
  12. I started at 198 and am 5’3. Lost 10 lbs pre surgery and am at 169 now. Surgery was March 20th

  14. I was given vitamins in the hospital and told to take them from the day I went home - but not to eat or drink half hour before and have hour after for the first two weeks
