Surgery date was 1/17/13. Down 27 lbs. But most of that was in the first 3 weeks. Nothing in two weeks. Getting a little discouraged. I think insulin may have something to do with it. Trying to stay positive!!

I have only lost 22lbs since surgery on 1/18. I had lost quite a bit (26 lbs) in the months prior to surgery. I tend to lose anywhere from 1 to 2.5 pounds per week. I am exercising 3-4 days a week and eating anywhere from 500-900 calories per day. The good news is I am now overweight and not obese. Recovery has been very easy and I am tolerating all foods well. Still, I am in the "slow losers" category. It is frustrating but I am really trying to look at the big picture, and not worry so much about what the scale says day to day- even though it's hard.

Sometimes it's discouraging reading people's huge numbers. I started out at 232, lots of people have 150,200 plus to lose so of course they will lose weight different than I do. I need to stay focused on my weight loss and not focus on others,

      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

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
