Recommended Posts

Everyone looses at a different pace. I am down 60 total which is awesome but for some reason I feel it should be more. My three month appt is Monday. I am hoping to talk about these feelings then. Hang in there everyone our journey has just begun.

I hit 3 months yesterday, down 62 pounds (10 before surgery) and I'm so shocked. Haven't seen this weight in years....and that voice in the back of my head reminds me of how far I have to go! I'm happy with my progress, and just trying to take it a day at a time and do the right things. Follow the program, exercise, etc. I lost a lot at first, then it slowed for about 6 weeks (took me that long to lose about 8 pounds) but now seems to be a little more steady - about 2 pounds a week. I just keep hoping that I am able to imprint a lifestyle change that is permanent, and that my weight loss continues! As Rockstar noted, we are all different - thanks to all for sharing!

Down 51 lbs since surgery. Starting weight 275 lbs, today 224. I still haven't taken my measurements, and I should. I know I've had to have lost a lot in inches. The size 16 jeans I bought about 3 weeks ago, I pulled off unzipped this past weekend. I struggle still getting in my Protein. I gave up the Protein Bars, made me gain. I try really hard to get my Water in, and most days I do. My surgeons PA and nutritionist both recommended NOT increasing my caloric intake, I was at 500 calories a day up until two weeks ago. But I found when I ate a bit more, 700 cal, my weight started to come off. On days I don't eat enough, the scale will show a pound gain.

re: caloric intake - i do think it feels like Russian Roulette, because if our bodies think they are starving, we won't lose. However, if we eat too much, we might not lose either. So, we can listen to the NUT's advice, but if your body loses more weight on a slightly increased caloric intake, then go with it.

Down 65 lbs!!! Super excited! Love seeing the weight drop off! I 've also found a wonderful consignment shop called Clothes Mentor! I've been taking in my "too big" clothes and using the money to buy new stuff at 1/2 the price of retail stores! Feels great!! So excited for the summer!!

I've lost 67 lbs since last summer (when I started officially seeing doctor and taking classes) and I have lost 47 lbs since surgery on 12/17/12. I know I am a slow loser, but I still feel pretty good about the progress I am making. I have gone from size 22/24 to 16s (still in women's sizes vs. "regular").

I'm still stalling, and we're almost 8 weeks post op and I'm down 34 pounds. I wish I was 40 down, but I'm thinking of maybe just doing 2 Protein Shakes a day and one meal with little Snacks to see if it'll help me budge the scale. I'm exercising 3-4x a week, burning 800 calories or more and I just can't seem to get it moving.

Castiel: we almost have the same stats. :) I'm very frustrated with my loss so far. My scale is not moving at all.

Hi folks,

how is everyone doing? the posting has dropped off for most of us lately, wondering what trials and tribulations are going on. I am down54 lbs since surgery Dec. 19th 2012. It feels kinda slow but I am on the older side.. It seems like I lose a chunk then nothing for the rest of the month. It appears like I lose after upping my calories some. I am also wondering if hormonal issues are having an effect. I am in size 16 women's jeans so the inches lost is good.

check in people!

Hey everyone! My surgery weight was 275. This morning I weighed 209. I'm in a size 14 pant, just ordered a size 12 trouser jean. I feel great most of the time. My blood pressure used to run 110s/70s. Now I'm 100/50. When I stand or change positions, the room spins.

I'm still at the same weight! no loss for well over a month. probably going on two months. but right now i just can't exercise and eating right has kind of gone out the window. i just need to graduate college and get back home to get back on track!

It is so hard to stay focused when you have so much going on, Try not to go overboard and just have food on the back burner while you are finishing school. congrats on graduating!
