Best Thing I Have Ever Done

Recommended Posts

I was sleeved 9/12/2011, a day that changed my life forever. I had my surgery at UCLA and had the best care and after care. I have bloodwork done every three months and my dietician is the best. So for I have lost 60 lbs. don't get me wrong I feel great but in the last month or so I have lost my motivation. I have kept my food intake under control but the Excerise is just not happening. I work 40 hours at a very stressful job where I am at a computer all day. So I haven't lost anything. I'm stuck anyone have advice, a pep talk.....

DebbieDeb you have made great progress so far! Don't give up! I know the mention of exercise can sound like a four letter word, but it is a piece of the weightloss puzzle. I started out slow with walking 20 mins a day 3 days a week. Now, after 6 months I'm running 4 days a week, but that was MY goal. Find YOUR goal and do it (literally write it down and put it on the fridge...I did!) You've got the ultimate tool to help you! Grab a buddy to walk with you. You CAN do this, girl! Stay strong, stay focused.

      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.
