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.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
