So I have to brag a little...

Today I noticed I now weigh less than the weight listed on my driver's license.

I'm forunate that in Texas the weight isn't printed on driver's licenses. I do get strange looks when people check my ID. I look like a completely different person.

I'm still losing' date=' but it has slowed down a bit. I'm working out like a freaking animal to keep my losing up. I'm going to walk 12 miles today. I was losing 20 pounds a month, now it's more like 12-15.

I've always worked out, and I've always had six "meals" per day.

I'm down 16 inches from my waistline and 3 shirt sizes. 160+ pounds lost from my heaviest weight.[/quote']

Thats awesome great job, I'll bet you feel fantastic! keep up the good work! When was your surgery, And far from your goal are you?

For those stuck in a stall, just keep doing what you are doing. I finally, finally saw some scale movement. After about 6 weeks of being stuck, the scale is finally moving. I tried every trick in the book but in the end I just trusted the process. I did stop logging my food because it was just making me crazy to see how little I was eating and not getting any results. If I feel myself slipping I'll start logging my food again. Mainly I keep track of my activity with my fitbit. Trying very hard to make my 10,000 steps a day goal. Not so easy when you have a desk job. Just 1.8lbs to go before I drop below 200.

We can do this!

Weightloss since surgery: 39.2

Weightloss pre-op: 48

Total loss: 87.2

How is the liquid diet going for you? Are you seeing a greater loss? I' ve been increasing working out also. In terms of diet, I noticed that simple carbs from juice and candy were creeping back into my diet. I've eliminated that and I saw an increase in the losses. The liquid once a week sounds like a great idea also. You look great by the way!!!

Thanks, that is very sweet!

It goes well, I especially like the discipline of it. I have Protein powder, broth, pea powder (bariatric advantage) , Jello, coffee etc. I've lost about 5 pounds over the last couple weeks so feel progress is happening.

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
