Big scale Victory.

I'm not one to weigh very often.

Normally only when i go in for a fill.

My last fill was mid July.

Well, I've been visiting my daughter and her family and decided to try her scales this morning.

I was afraid I had gained a couple pounds.......but........to my surprise i was down 12.5 lbs from my last fill.

needless to say i was so pleasantly surprised.

that makes me down 71 lbs since jan/10 and only 20-25 lbs to go. I know they will come off slowly but they will come off.

For those of you just starting this journey, keep your chin up and the little we do every day will make a big big difference in the months to come.

Congrats! Amazing that you've been able to stay off the scale; I've gotta be on it once a week.

Don't want to bust your bubble, but different scales will weigh you differently. I can weigh at home.. then go directly to the gym, no eating or drinking and weigh again, wearing the same clothes and be 3 lbs different.

You are doing great! If your not excersising already, it will help those last 20 pounds fade away. If you are, you may want to up the intensity. It has worked for me in getting those last 10 pounds off.

That was my point.. albeit I expressed myself badly... that the loss might not be 12.5 lbs. It might be 20lbs. It might be 8.

I just didn't want the OP to get home and get all depressed if the numbers weren't as good on the home scale.

Congrats on the loss.. whatever the number is. :(

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
