August 2013 Roll Call



Recommended Posts

Surgery Aug 29th down 24 pounds but since I started changing my habits before surgery I am down 39 pounds. So I am feeling really good back does not hurt when I stand for a long period of time. I can walk up the stairs using each stair instead of taking one at a time. My clothes are fitting better and some things are to big. So this is so worth it.

I'm only down 22 lbs since surgery on 8/7. I notice I seem to be losing slower than most people. Can you ladies give me an example of what you eat in a days time? I feel like I can still eat too much...definitely less than before but more than I had anticipated.

I had surgery on 8/26 and have lost 27 since surgery...so not as fast as some but I think it's OK. I also feel like I can eat a lot more than some people describe. Usually I start out my day with a smoothie that has 27 g of Protein. After that it varies but I usually will eat three meals after that and one is usually another smoothie or muscle milk. Otherwise I am able to eat two eggs, 2-3 oz of meat with a vegetable, salad plate full of salad with 2 oz of deli meat turkey...

I hope that helps. I have found that I tend to lose more the more Water I drink as well.

Surgery 8/28/13 and down 39.6- feeling really good and struggling to get recommended calories in each day. I was not eating enough and stalled. 2 months in the morning-hope to make it a 40 pound loss by then!

Hope this picture shows up. Sleeved on 8/19 and down 31 since surgery (42 since preop). It seems like I've lost nearly all my weight in my waist and upper body. Began intensive lower body strength training to firm and "encourage" some loss there! Glad to see everyone doing well!

Hello my August brothers and sisters! It is great to see everyone doing and looking so great! I also was sleeved on 8/19. Everything has been going smooth and have really found a side of me I haven't seen since high school...a side that likes to exercise! I am down 46 pounds since surgery on 8/19 and down a total of 69 pounds since pre-op! I feel great! Walking 3 miles a day minimum and have gotten back into bike riding. Keep it up everyone...looking great!

Forgive yourself for the slip, it's going to happen from time to time, and look forward again. None of us got to needing to have WLS because we were angels when it came to food and healthy choices. But you made a huge decision and took a stand, so just remind yourself of why you did it, remind yourself of the sweet victories and re-engage the brain to forge ahead. YOU CAN DO IT, keep telling yourself that! Don't give up because of a bump in the road or for a few pounds that you might gain when as a result of the bumps. You have the tool to get back on the path so now you need to make your brain recommit to it and look forward...not back. All the best!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
