I'm 5 months in and down 44lbs. With my port flipping and getting another surgery I feel I'm not doing so good. I go to the gym but I'm still not in my green zone I don't think. With all this crap I've had to go through I hope there is light at the end of the tunnel. I've been stuck at the same weight for awhile. Getting frustrating with all of it! He has had problems finding my port sense day one and it's flipped then more problems finding it. When I had my port flipped he put 4cc in my band and when I had it done under x-Ray after him trying to find it and poking me a half dozen time he put 1cc in so I have 5cc in my band and think I need more. Hopefully he can find it when I makes appointment. Sigh

8.8 pounds a month is great weight loss....... Don't kid yourself or feel bad about "slow" progress. That's GREAT progress. Like I always say.... I added on an average of 5 to 6 pounds a YEAR for 25 YEARS....... I'm thrilled to lose 5 to 6 pounds a MONTH over 2 to 3 YEARS........ even with an occasional stall!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
