Longer term Success



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery in April 2010. I weighed 581 the day of the surgery, and weighed in at 310 this morning. I was wearing a size 72, and just bought a size 48. The key is steady, and don't let a flat weight or a pound gain freak you out. Just keep it going, and it will work if you keep your mind on track. Have some fun, cheat once in awhile, and you will do good.I also work as a food buyer in a major retailer, so food samples are around 24/7. So if I can do it, anybody can!

Hi Byrdmen!

First, congrats on your sucess! I am a newbie - banded just 2 months and 2 weeks ago and I'm dealing with a rough round of head hunger and overeating. While I've only had about 700 calories so far today, I am stuffed but I keep wanting to eat...so I've been nibbling on smart pop popcorn all day...again, I am stuffed but still want to eat. I know this isn't good. Have you ever had these times? If so, how did you deal with it?

Thanks for the success story. Congrats to you. I am doing good so far. I eat often but only a little at a time. This works very well for me. I don't stay hungry or crave anything all day. I'm only 5 weeks post op & have lost 23 so far. I don't care how long it takes to loose weight as long as it keeps coming off.

Wow terrific advise to stay focus and sweat the little stuff.

When I want to have a pity party for myself I concentrate on my ever increasing NSV's.

Not being concern if the ladder I am on will hold me. When I was 330 lbs I was climbing on an old wooden ladder on a Water tank and I broke 3 steps.

Walking up and down stairs without losing my breath.

Not worrying if the chair in the cafe will hold me.

Take care

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
