I had to share...I hit 100 pounds today from my pre-band weight. I'm down 78 from my sleeve on 12/17/13. For those of you whose doctors say revisions don't do as well as "virgin" sleevers...I say' date=' heck NO! <img src='http://www.bariatricpal.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I still have a ways to go, but I'm still losing it![/quote']

You look amazing, keep up the great job!

It's so wonderful to see all of the accomplishments everyone has experienced! I love that everyone is continuing to post. Especially since we'll all be coming up on our one year surgiversary soon. I propose that we all post before & after pics all through December on our one year date. Is anyone interested?

I never took a before picture before I started the program November 2009. The group meetings used to encourage members to talk about at least one 'none scale' related ite to Celebrate from the previous week. The idea is not replace a food obsession with a scale watching one. If I had to do it again I would have done a body fat measurement. I went from 60 waist to 56 when the scale moves just about 100 lbs.

I too have noticed I can hold more' date=' and I cant seem to keep my calories at 800 like they want me to. I'm eating around 1000-1100 mostly now. My weight loss has really slowed, too. Not exactly stalled, but more like a pound a week. It's going to take another year to get to goal at this rate. However, I've resigned myself to that, and this is a way of eating and a life style I can maintain forever. I'm very happy with it.[/quote']

I was in the same boat. The majority of the weight loss comes from being on the post surgery liquid diet. When my appetite returned and solid food was no longer painful that's when the real work began. I never wanted to see yogurt or a Protein shake again. :) I soon added yogurt and shake for at least one meal a day. You need to get your 80gs of Protein a day that will also curb the appetite for more calories. If possible join a club. I can no longer do the treadmill because of knee injury but 30-45 minutes on bike 3-4 times a week helps you maintain and gets u away from the Fridge and temptation.

I was trying to do " From the couch to 5k in 90 days"... The second week into it I planted to run and had this searing pain in my knee. I made an appt. with my doctor and she sent me straight to the Othopedic Dr. I thought for sure I had torn my minuscus in my knee. They did an MRI and it came back that I have OsteoArthritis throughout my body. The Dr. Looked at me and said that " if I didn't lose weight' date=' my knee would have to be replaced within a year, then a year after that the other would have to be replaced, from babying the replaced one. He said for every lb. I lost it would take 5 lbs. of pressure off of my knees." I came home and cried, but I realized that " I had to do something drastic!" So I started searching, and found out about wls in Mexico. I set my appt. and the rest is history! I do not regret it one minute...I only wish I would've done it sooner.[/quote']

I had torn ACL, MCL and meniscus November 1972. Back then they didn't know that MCl might heal but not ACL. So surgery was June 1973. The way they did surgery back arthritis was guaranteed. Had left knee replacement November 2002. Weight loss has helped but know right knee cartilage is thin. Where do you go for followup when the surgery is done in Mexico?

I have not been able to post any post-op pics, because I can no longer figure out how to reduce the file size so that the pictures go through to the VSG website. I use a regular camera and have some pictures of me that I could share and have tried to share and no luck. I hate technology. I don't have a smart phone or I would share pictures that way. That seems to be the way that most people take pictures now.

meat that isn't well chewed still bugs me. I eat child size portions and have been able to do this since around 6 months.

I still eat insanely small portions. For example I cannot eat an entire 1/2 cup serving of cottage cheese in one sitting or finish an entire thing if yoplait 100 Greek yogurt. I eat less in one sitting than my 18 month old son. I can drink maybe 3oz at a time but I also take a drink every 10-15 minutes.

From what I gather from here I am atypical. I was sleeved 12/12/12 so I am 9 months out (almost to the day) only have about 10-15lbs to goal and my daily consumption of calories is still around 600-800 a day. The week before my menses kicks my calories up to around 900.

I definitely eat more than you and I was sleeved on 12/17/12...only 5 days later. I would say my typical calorie count is higher...like 1000, but in the scheme of things, 1000 is not nearly what I could eat before surgery. Plus, now with the weight off, I am exercising and I have more stamina. I am about 7 lbs away from my personal goal and 17 lbs away from what the doctor thinks is my best weight for my height and frame.
