Recommended Posts

Summer 2012 approx. 295 lbs & now- 161 lbspost-46492-1383839640179_thumb.jpg post-46492-13838396402337_thumb.jpg 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, 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!

One more thing to add- I eat about 1200-1400 calories per day and I am still losing- slowly, but at this point my diet is easily manageable and sustainable and something I can see sticking with for a lifetime.

What are you eating at this point?

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.

I lost 30 pre-op (302-272) and 111 in 10 months (272-161). Honestly, it's really kind of average, but I stall quite a bit- like every couple weeks. I lose weight like a stair-step. Maintain...lose...maintain...lose....not linear at all.

Congratulations!! you are doing awesome.

I was sleeved in December 2012 as well but I have lost about 70lbs only and sometimes I wonder if I am losing too slow. I stall a lot too and sometimes that scares me a little because I kind of feel discouraged at times.

most excellent! quite a good role model. I am only out 3 months and worry about keeping it up for a while.

I too love MFP- a life saver and my exercise (rowing and treadmill)

BTW--such a serious face in the current pic. ;)
