From my workout yesterday. Yesterday was cardio and back day with the weights. Those last 20lbs are very very stubborn as far as going away. My tracker says that 11lbs away from goal, but its more like 20 to 22lbs actually.

I am over a year out and woke up yesterday with the fear that I am going to gain back all of what I have lost. I have not changed my eating and log my food everyday. Not sure where this is coming from.

Sleeved 4/15/17

Height: 5'6"

This is the hardest obstacle I've ever tackled next to parenting, but I think I got this.

I started at 365/370 and I am 194 right now and I am not quite 17 months from surgery. I expect I will exceed my goal of 180, and I am thinking about changing my goal to 165. I have to see how the next few pounds go.
You lose the fastest in the first 6 months because you are still healing. It is really important during that time to really nail down good habits. Once you are healed you can eat a wider variety of foods and old habits can creep in.
Your sleeve alone will probably get you to about 250, if you really want to lose all the way down well below 200, that is going to be on you and your lifestyle changes.


May I ask your height, your beginning weight is where I'm at now, I would like to be 185,190,200

2017 could it be, a new me? yaaaass please!

I am 5'5/5'6 depending on who does the measuring.

I am pretty happy in the 180s I wear a size 10 dress, sometimes an 8 (I have a hard time because my breasts are still large 36G). 9 in juniors. I am happy with my physical size but I want more distance between me at 200, I never want to see that 2 on a scale again.

I liked broth with unflavored Protein powder. I got really sick of sweet stuff very fast.

What is the brand of unflavored powder?

Another Gym night picture session from tonight. I can actually see my waist getting smaller now, which is kinda cool to see. Went from a 58/60 waist to now in a very comfortable 36 waist now. Tonight was just some arms and back work with weights. Tomorrow will indeed be a legs day.

Thank you!! I definitely feel you . . For my height . Which is 5"7-5"8 like you depends on who measures me or my hair lol I want to be 190-200 but I just need to see how I look more so than a number..

Also did you experience Hair loss I'm really thinking about going bald like amber Rose bald and just starting over my hair is already falling out and uneven.

My hair thinned a lot, but I lost a lot of fat and it was kinda traumatic to my body. I ended up with a lot of hormonal issues. I was really fat for a really long time and losing weight just freaked my body out. I also always lose hair when under stress.

I just wear wigs, so it doesn't even matter now. Actually thin hair is better for wigs, they fit better. Since I have lost most of my weight my hair is growing back super fast. A year from now it won't even matter and I will still be wearing wigs anyway because I love them! Who knew. I never though I would be a wig or weave chick, but I love it. #hoeislife :lol:

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
