Hey lipstick lady doesnt seem to believe my weight loss and thinks im here to sell something. Well wrong. I signed ul to share experiences and help people. Want before and after well look at my face here and go to my Facebook page and see my photos in a maroon dress shirt,, I dont lie andi dont care if u dont believe me or not.must be jealousy or something ridiculous. She reported me for solicitstion. Never have I done that. If real nice people want to chat just send me a message.. 180 since april. Sorry 9 months. Oooops. Off by 1 month.. I wish all the best

We are nothing but honest on here, so on that basis, wasn't just LL who had concerns, I reported your post too. The pre-op tag had been used a few days ago by someone claiming similar weight loss and it turned out he hadn't had wls and was trying to sell to us.

We are protective of each other on here and honesty is the currency - if it something doesn't feel right, I will challenge it. But I got it wrong about you and for that I apologise unreservedly.

But my question still stands - do you have lots of loose skin after such rapid weight loss???

No gall bladder problem. No loose skin because about 8 years ago I lost 160 on my own and had the full skin removal procedure. Then my dad passed 4 years ago and I regaind all weight plus some. I was so worried I would stdetch back out but when I lost the weight my stomach stayed flat as a board. A little excess skin under top part of arm but thats it. Very happy about that.

Re Dizzy. Yes I lost so quick I got dizzy because blood pressurewas to low andi was still on blood pressure pills. Dr took me righ off all medicine and now im fine sleep apnea gone as well.

That's amazing! Great work! I've never been an exerciser (well after high school... Was on track and tennis teams) but it looks like that's going to be what I need to work towards, after my surgery. I'm so heavy I find it hurts my knees a lot. What did you start with? Just planning ahead. My surgery is scheduled for Feb. 4th. I'm getting the sleeve and having the lapband removed. Anyone know how to change your profile? Mine still says lapband, but after surgery I want to change it. Thanks! ???? Also everyone post their weights, but no one says how tall they are. People start the surgery at 220 and I'm like wow, I can't wait to be 220. But I'm guessing they are much shorter... Anyway now I'm rambling. ????

So basically 2 hours a day of walking? Wow... I need to get a treadmill or something. I'm a teacher and a single mom of an active teenager... I've got to be present. I know from experience even when I'm tired... exercising gives you energy...it's just doing it. Alright. Going to make it a goal... Thanks!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
