ONE MONTH!!!

Sorry about the lapse!

Yesterday I surprised my sister with Ed Sheeran concert tickets so we saw him last night! Amazing live!!

Things have definitely tested me this past month and I've learned so much about portions and about how hard it is to view yourself in a different way after losing weight, but seeing progress makes it oh so worth it.

Today, I weighed in at 285. This is 45 pounds from my highest weight of 330.

I'm unsure of what my blood pressure has been doing, but I can only hope it has been getting lower since I've dropped these 45 pounds!

Here's some pictures too!! attachicon.gif ImageUploadedByBariatricPal1434029043.749923.jpgattachicon.gif ImageUploadedByBariatricPal1434029059.707268.jpg

You are looking amazing!!!!!! And love your giraffe tattoo, if that's what it is of course lol. Yes this first month for us all has been very eye opening. Old thinking has been trying to put thoughts in my head, but I'm fighting hard. Love and Light to all of you ❤️❤️???????????? Jaysen

Yes! It is a giraffe tattoo! Haha thank you!!!

I got it because I'm so dang tall! But yes it's been trying!

How long did everyone stall for the first time.... I'm 16 days post op and I haven't lost a thing in over a week... I'm getting really frustrated and a bit depressed... Ever since I started pureed foods the weight loss has stopped. Help?

I did for around 3 weeks.

It's frustrating. But be patient!

But so soon? At only 16 days post op, I didn't think there would be a stall until at least week 3? The scale stopped moving shortly after my first week post op....

Mine stopped moving after I started soft foods. Which was at 2 1/2 weeks

@@RNYGal I'm 17 days post op and same thing happened to me around day 8. I also started my menstrual cycle so that even had me going up on the scale. I'm only down 13 pounds since the surgery and although I wish it was more I'm fine with it. The weight will come off so don't worry yourself. I actually don't really weigh myself much anymore because the up and down or no loss at all bothered me at first. This is a process and our bodies need to adjust and that may mean slower weight loss for some.

I'm still trying to get a good grip on my Fluid, Protein and Vitamin regimen...so for now thats my focus. I figure once I start exercising I'll see more results on the scale. We have a long journey ahead and it's only the beginning so no worries it'll get moving again ????

It was around the 3 week mark and lasted 2 weeks for me. Each week for me after surgery was a new progression of diet. So soft food phase for me started stall. You just can't worry it's not gonna work, cause its gonna do what it is designed to do. We're hardly able to much, so our bodies are trying to pull a starvation mode thingy, and saying hey, we're not getting enough, let's hold onto everything. And if you are doing all of your Water plus Protein, you will start losing again. I bumped up my calories naturally, and that snapped my stall. But it was because I felt hungry, and wanted a bit more. Not a forced type situation..

It's scary knowing everyday, our honeymoon phase end is approaching, and yes it's still a ways off, but when you follow rule to the "T" we're like WTH.. Why am I not losing faster. But getting caught up in the numbers game is maddening. I knew the surgery wasn't gonna make it all come off in a month or two, but everyone said it just melts off. And for some that is true, and others it's not. And unfortunately that's just the way a person is built right!? But essentially, it goes back to not comparing yourself to any other persons journey with WLS. We all, as you know, are unique and have different health factors that determine our progress. I wish you continued success. ????????????❤️

Thanks Salonboi. I needed that. We all do expect the weight to just melt off. As frustrating as it is to not see the scale move, I know it will. Patience is not something I'm known for but I guess now is as good a time as any to really try and learn it.

It does come off, much quicker than if we didn't have surgery... Patience isn't something I have a lot of either, but I'm learning..

I have my 6 week follow up appt with surgeon later today. Can't believe it's been 6 weeks already.

Feeling pretty good today. Still have the good and not so good days.

It continues to be a challenge to get Vitamins , Water , Protein and exercise all in each day. And being back to work adds to the challenge. Get busy and forget to eat and drink.

Never before , ever, would I forget to eat. Hahahaha. I can only get down very moist or wet foods. I made chili yesterday and it was wonderful.

Isn't it amazing just how small our portions are now compared to pre op.

I had many regrets after surgery those first few weeks. Now that I'm feeling better and getting into somewhat of a better routine , no regrets Although, this by far is one of the toughest things I've had to deal with or should I say manage.

That's my thoughts for today. It's helpful for me to just say it on here.

One more thing, my husband will not see this but I will be sure to tell him.... He has been so amazing though this entire process. Could not have done it without him.

Thanks again to all of my fellow bariatric pals out there. Your feedback and your own posts have helped me greatly. Continue being losers !! ????????❤️

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
