My twin had WLS over a decade ago, and hadn't lost all her necessary weight. She went with me for my consult for VGS. Our doc put her back on the shakes to get her back on track and to take her Vitamins. She is doing well on it. Slow movement but going back to a starting point of substituting some meals with shakes was needed. Check with your doc and see what will get you back to the place you want to get to perhaps.

You look fantastic, I'm sure you'll get to goal, no rush. As they say to us, we didn't put it all on in one year, so don't be disappointed if you lose slower and it takes longer than a year. My surgeon says typically 1 1/2 to 2 yrs to take it off give yourself. I am losing slower as well since month 6th, but realize that it might be better, giving me more of a chance to tone up as I go along, being at the gym 5 days a week now for months. You look beautiful, Celebrate that!!

I have already decided to change up, and go bak to the start. I have read many accounts here of people who have done the same ting. Jump start the metabolism!

Thanks, everyone for the nice comments...they are encouraging

Wow' date=' tempus fugit! A year ago today, I went into surgery weighing 284 lbs. Today, I weigh 195 lbs for total of 89 Lbs lost...SO FAR. My original goal was 140 pounds. While I am still headed in that direction, well see what the future brings. Wile I am very happy with my weightloss to date, I thought I would be further along. Oh, I'm not ungrateful, just anxious. I know that I have made some food choices that I shouldn't have, but I try to shake it off, and stay on task. Some days are better than others. I'm still forcing myself to drink lots of Water. I can say I have gotten much better!

Along with the weightloss, I have gone from wearing a size 24 to a size 14. One day I just stared at a dress in my closet, amazed that it was really mine...in that size! I actually tried on a dress in a size 12, and it fit. Wow. A few other victories....

I CAN NOW:

-shop off the rack, on the main level, not downstairs...behind housewares

-cross my legs without cutting off my circulation

-share a seat on my commuter train without fear of spilling over the center

-run up stairs without gasping for air

-Go shopping with a friend

-tuck my shirt in

-wrap a bath towel around my body

-WEAR LILLY PULITZER....HOORAY!

-sit on furniture without fear of crashing to the floor

***drumroll, please*** I WEIGH LESS THAN MY HUSBAND!!!!!!!!!!

here are a few photos to show my progress thus far. I can't wait to come back in a few months to share my goal photos.

Thank you

Darlene
