@ ready to lose it....I started out at 102 kg which was about 225 lbs and I had surgery at the beginning of march 2012. I lost most of the weight by November in about 9 months. I now weigh 72 kg which is about 159 lbs bringing my loss to 30kg or 66 lb. I did both metric and imperial measurements coz I haven't actually calculated before. I have 7kg to hit goal of 65kg or 143lbs.

Hi there!

First of all, you look amazing!! :-) but just wanted to ask a few questions if that's okay? I was wondering what sort of food you eat and how much you involve exercise in your life? It's pretty obvious you are looking GREAT!! & wanted to see what path you took (obviously beside the sleeve) to get to where you are today!! I am 4 months post op this month & have lost close to 60 pounds, which I am totally stoked about but just wanted to see what you did :-) !!

@alahana. Sorry the post got sent before I finished typing lol. Fat fingers when typing. Anyway the lunch is typically a Protein and some veg and the same for dinner. I don't always have good days I have a majorrrr sweet tooth so I do indulge I believe more than the average sleevers in cakes, cappuccino's and cola but I do work out more then. The key is to make sure exercise becomes a part of your life. I don't obsess over it but I do 20 mins of strenuous cardio and 40 mins of weight training 4-5 times a week. But I am a slow loser and I believe it's because I dont always make great choices

Good answer! I guess you still have to live life & I thank myself every day for getting the sleeve & not the bypass because I must admit, sometimes I have eaten the wrong food and I know I would have been very ill if it was the bypass I got!! Phew!! :-) well congrats because you really look amazing :-)

I definitely think the sleeve has way more benefits than the bypass so good on you. If you need any help along the way feel free to message me.

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
