Summer 2012 approx. 295 lbs & now- 161 lbs Edited to add that I am 10 months out as of tomorrow. I'm not a carb Nazi. I limit carbs (I have not had a sandwich in 10 months or soda pop) but eat pretty much what I want' date=' just making good and healthy choices 90% of the time. I bought a food scale and weigh and measure EVERYTHING. I track every morsel I put in my mouth on MyFitnessPal (HUGE reason for my success). For exercise I do Zumba and Couch to 5K. This can be done and you can be successful eating in moderation. Good luck to everyone![/quote']

Wow u look amazing!

An example of yesterday (1355 cals) 1am (I work nights): leftover hibachi steak (2 oz) and vegetables & black coffee during the shift/ 8am: 1/2 Thomas' light English muffin with 1 tbsp. coconut oil and 1 tbsp. apple butter/ 2p (pre-run): 1/2 English muffin + 1 tbsp. natural Peanut Butter & sugar free jam/ 3pm: frozen dark chocolate dipped strawberry halves & sugar free chai tea w/ almond milk/ 5pm: flat bottomed taco shell w/ 1/2 cup refried Beans, salsa, and light sour cream/ 7pm: 2 slices bacon & 2 scrambled eggs (I couldn't finish the eggs- they were jumbo); 8pm: 1 dark chocolate square w/ 1 tbsp. natural Peanut Butter, chai tea almond milk latte & 1 tbsp. sugar free Creamer w/ coffee. That's "all". Seems like a lot. LOL Hope this helps.

Thank you.. It does help to see what the future holds for us just starting the process!!!!

I was done on May 1 and I am down 101lbs as of this Tuesday. I work overnight too so sometimes it hard to eat on the run. I eat Protein and then take Protein Shakes to work so if the break is not coming I can have something.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
