Sleeved 12/9/2014

Started 289

Pre surg 276

Now 236

Have hit a couple stalls but I remind myslf that I am down 50 pounds total in 2 months. But that fear kicks in once in a whole when I get on the scale and it doesn't move. Matching the head with the numbers and the way I look is a challenge. I do feel great. Still want to lose 50 more.

That is AWESOME!!! Keep up the good work!!!

Thanks. Getting in Protein but struggle with the Calcium tabs. I forget them constantly.

Tina131-

I started keeping a supply of calcium chews in my desk drawer at work and that has helped me remember. It's like a nice little chocolate snack during the day.

Sleeved on 12-3-2013

HW-272

SW-263

CW-222

I feel great ! I've had no complications at all and I'm grateful for that. I am surprised that I can eat anything and not get sick. This is a good thing but also a bad thing. My surgeon says some food cravings may go away and taste buds will change. I haven't experienced that yet, any of u have such luck ???

@Kel2014 - Congratulations on your weight loss so far! :)

Prior to surgery I used to REALLY like scrambled eggs. I had 1/2 a scrambled egg during the soft food phase and haven't had one since. So yes, my taste buds have changed but YMMV.

Hello fellow December sleevers,

My stats:

Weight at beginning of process: 338

VSG Date: 12/11/13

SW: 327.5

CW: 267.0

I am blessed in that I was going to the pool regularly before surgery. I'm still going to the pool 3 times a week with weight training during the week as well.

Blondiee,

Thank you. I've become a regular shopper at Goodwill and the Texas Thrift store in San Antonio close to Walzem road. Saturday I made out like a bandit at Texas Thrift. They had a sale going on where the women's clothes were 50% off!!!!!!!!!!! I think the men's clothes were too, but I wasn't looking for men's clothes ; )-- I looked through the ENTIRE plus size rack and got a large plastic bag of clothes for under $57.00!!!!!!!!! I absolutely LOVE it when they make the plus size seperate from the regular sizes so you don't have to look through all the racks!

Not only that, found some "cheater" floweres. They're the old fashioned heavy plastic kind. Put them out by my garage. No watering needed. I'm sure the sun will fade them but heck, they're inexpensive and I'll just pick up some more at another thrift store and recycle the old ones.

Take Care,

Kathleen

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
