First before and after pictures



Recommended Posts

Ok, so here's my first pictures. The "before" was taken Dec 4, the day I started my preop diet. The "after" was taken 3 months later (2 1/2 months postop) and 50 pound down. Size 22 to 18.

I might be in a stall right now. I only weigh once/week. 2 weeks ago I was at 184# and last week I was 187#. I'm not too concerned with the gain because I know what a difference hydration status can make. I weigh tomorrow, so we'll see if it was a fluke or if I'm officially stalled.

I'm battling a 3rd relapse of C. Diff diarrhea so actually weight loss is at the bottom of my priorities right now. The antibiotics make me feel like shit so I'm Just trying to stay hydrated until I see the gastroenterologist on Tuesday.

Thanks everyone, I'm really psyched with my success so far.

And it's official, I am stalled. Weekly weigh in showed 185, which puts me 1 pound up from when those pics were taken almost 3 weeks ago. I have no doubt it's from complete lack of calories. Other than a few random days, I know I haven't gotten more than 500 calories/day in the last month. The metronidazole makes me SO sick I can barely eat or drink anything. Today I'm so nauseous I can't even swallow my own saliva...I'm walking around with a spit cup. I see the gastroenterologist tomorrow so I stopped the metronidazole this morning. He's going to have to figure out a new plan anyways. At this point I'm making mental deals with the Universe that I would be happy to not lose another pound as long as this infection goes away.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
