Yes we all should not compare to one another. We are all on the right track to a healthier body , mind and soul. Now I wish I didn't post my weight loss. We can do it. We were all brave enough to go through this surgery WE GOT THIS!!!!!!

I had my surgery 1/22/13, started liquids one week before surgery and as of today have list 46 lbs.

I followed the plan exactly and have walked 5-6 days a week. Feel great!

I'll start to slow down soon as a stall is due but I'm sticking to the plan so that I get through the stall, when it happens.

This post is just what I needed. I had surgery Jan. 8 and seem to have been stuck at 40 lbs lost for a couple weeks now. Here I was thinking I was "failing" but I'm actually within a normal range of the rest of you.

Maybe now I can stop stressing about it and move on.

Yeah great thread... it would be good if you post your stalls as well.

I was stalled for almost a week in the low 280s... When the stall finally broke I got into the mid 270's pretty quickly. 2 weeks later I am at another stall in the mid to high 260's... been there about a week and feeling it break soon.

weight at Surgery Jan. 21, 2013 was 232, currently around 212, total lost 20 pounds. I'm 5'6" tall. It's been 7 weeks today. I lost 15 pounds the first 4 weeks. Now I've been teetering up and down with 1-2 pounds for the past 11 days, stuck at the same weight. I had set a goal of losing 30 pounds by 8 weeks, but I don't see that happening. To be honest I get quite frustrated when people say "I'm a slow loser", when they are so obviously not. That makes those of us who truly are losing slow feel worse.

      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
