Post-Op January 2014 Losers Club!

I'm only down 40 pounds since my surgery on Jan 13th. For the last month I have been stalled - not one pound of weight losss. However, prior to the surgery I would have been happy to have lost 40 pounds! It's all in the perspective :)

I thought I was losing hair, but got it done today she thought I was actually getting better hair. I've been pounding the Protein and doing all my Vitamins.< /p>

I finally had to buy some new clothes. The old jeans were falling off and all my tops are too big. I just bought some fun clothes. I'll put a belt on and continue to wear my baggy stuff to work. Priorities!

I think you look great!! 37 is nothing to sneeze at! Don't get discouraged it's going to move again. I plateaued for a good month, then I upped my Protein by adding a lot of fish to my diet, changed my workouts and boom! scale is moving again and I'm down another 10 in a month.

You got this, stay positive!!

I have tried baked fish twice, it just don't settle very well. I wish I could find something with substance that would.

Congrads on the 10#! Awesome stuff!

The difference

Since surgery on January 9th, I have lost 53 lbs. When I brush my hair after a shower, it looks like I lost enough hair to make a toupee. I keep forgetting to take my Vitamins, which I am trying to work on. But my clothes are falling off of me and I haven't felt so good about myself in decades. I might even buy a new outfit and treat myself to a day of getting my hair and nails done for my 10th wedding anniversary.

Everyone is looking great! I went on a cruise last week and realized I can eat just about anything. I've been having a hard time getting back on track since I've been home. I find that I'm actually feeling hunger for the first time since surgery Jan 28th. I go to the gym everyday and did on the boat but those dinners were so good. I had little bites of food here and there and even had a bite of dessert. I was shocked when I went to the doctors today and I actually lost 4 pounds! I think it's because I'm Actually eating. I'm down only 43 lbs since surgery but I am very happy with it. So happy to see such success and progress for everyone.

Is anyone still vomiting regularly? There are a lot of things, particularly Protein like chicken, that still get stuck and the I vomit. Also had my first episode of dumping syndrome on Monday. I drank a fancy coffee with too much sugar (I realized later) and about two hours later (at the airport!) my blood sugar dropped to 48, I had heart palpitations, sweating, dizziness, and difficulty catching my breath. It took about 4 hours to feel better. I thought I was dying. Luckily my fiend who is a type I diabetic was with me and thought to check my sugar or I would've been really scared. I've certainly learned my lesson though!

How is everyone doing? As for me, I am doing well. Still losing, slowly though. But I am 32 lbs from goal so that is to be expected.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
