Recommended Posts

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:

HW 368 well before I even thought of surgery.

Weight at beginning of process: 338

VSG Date: 12/11/13

SW: 327.5

CW: 267.0

Size 28 to 20 fitting into 18 REAL soon.

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

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
