Recommended Posts

Very sad I got on the scale today and gained 3lbs :( ... im pretty sure its Fluid since I take a BP med for excess fluid that I haven't taken since surgery but its still no fun seeing the scale go up been a all around awful day when I was pre op this would be the kind of day I would just stuff my face and let food soothe my soul ugh

Sleeved Nov 12th, now down 94lbs and the 12th of Jan will be 2 months out! just keeps falling off! can't wait for the next 100 to be gone. Things are changing and finding I can do what I used to do after struggeling for the last 12 years of being in "Fat Hell", can only blame myself, but never again!, only going to get better now.

What was your start weight? I'm trying to find someone to compare with.

I am wondering...the people who have done well with losing alot..is it that you are not eating carbs (or very few?) I have a feeling this is my bigger problem because ever since I slowly added them back in, my weight loss has slowed. But very hard to completely give them up! :(

I was sleeved on 11/28/12 and am down 40 pounds now. I worked out 2 days in a row last week and was so sore for the next 4 LOL....I am totally out of shape. It did feel really good though so I am sticking with it!! Right now for me the food is the biggest issue, I just don't really even feel like eating, nothing looks or really tastes good. I do it because I know I have to but I have no desire to. I am still struggling to get in the required amount of water/liquids. I feel good, no real complaints I am confident the food thing will get better, eventually!

I try to watch the carbs that I eat, but I don't have a magic carb number I stay below. I've lost 45lbs in 8 weeks. Not magical, but I'm happy. I started at 248 and I'm determined to lose the last 3lbs to onederland before my birthday.

My surgery was November 28 down 31lbs. I feel good so far except for days where I feel really weak and always feel like I am starving. Other than that, I am happy with my progress.

Sleeved 11/13- down 45lbs. HW:248. I don't really watch carbs too much- just try to limit them a bit- I'm not going to go out and have a bowl of Pasta (although I did have 1 bite of lasagna a week ago). I am determined to lose these last 4lbs before onederland by next Friday (my birthday). It's been my goal from the get-go. I have the flu now so I haven't really been able to work out for the last day or two. But it has helped with weightloss- lol.

I was sleeved on 11/12 - day of surgery weight 221.5 - today I'm 206 - so about 16lbs. THAT'S IT! can you say slow loser? I still have restriction - thank god :) I was in a stall for like 3-4 weeks. I thought the scale would never start moving again - but it has this week. Preop I lost 15lbs. So for a grade total I am down 31lbs. 16 since day of surgery is probably the least amount I've read that people have lost in 8 weeks post -op. I am trying to Celebrate my small successes and not dwell on the scale. I make a conscious effort every day to do the right things - sometimes I slip but for the most part I am dead on. Except for taking Vitamins. I am a bad Vitamin taker. I just bought Centrum chewables today, and I like them, so I'm going to take four a day and some added Calcium because I can't stand chewing the bariatric ones I bought from my hospital pharmacy. constipation has been a never ending battle for me. I have hypothyroidism and not sure if that is part of my problem or not. I have been taking meds. for it for 17 years now. I started using a treadmill a couple of times a week and signed up for my first ever yoga class starting next week. I know I should be running or something more but I'm not motivated to do that yet. We'll see what the spring holds for me :) Good luck everyone!

Hi I was sleeved November 27th and weighed 290 before surgery and Im down to 250!! So 40lb gone so far but I feel so like I should be losing more!!! Maybe I'm being unrealistic or just to hard on myself but im just so scared that this suirgery wont WORK!!! To Yasmine I eat a little bit of everyhting but to be honest all Snacks or food that I put in my mouth have to have some kind of Protein because I struggle so much to meet the protein. Also I do myfitnesspal Ortegap. but how many calries does it say you should be having cuz that programs gives me so much even though my dr told me 1200. How many calories is everyone trying to consume!! And how do you get a ticker

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
