Dec 31, 2014 sleever here. Since surgery I've lost 120 pounds. My family and friends say that I look like I'm "melting" "gaunt" or "deathly ill". People who are just meeting me now say I look fantastic and can't believe I ever weighed 270.

My brain hasn't caught up to the mirror image of me. If that makes any sense. I used to wear a size 24. Now I wear a 6/7. I went from not having clothes that fit cuz they were too small to not having clothes fit cuz they're too big. I've actually started wearing a lot of my 10 year old sons' t-shirts!!! Also my shoes are too big I went from an 8 1/2 wide to a regular 8. Insanity!

I still don't get hunger pains. I eat all the time! And I'll eat anything Protein that will stay down! I still drink shakes daily to keep up my protein intake.

My biggest concern is my hair falling out!! It was thin to start with, now I feel like I'm balding! How is everyone else dealing with this??

Dec 4th 2014 was my surgery. I am 27 at 5 ft 9 and started at 334 at surgery. I am currently standing in the doorway of onederland (200.0 as of 9am) and have gone from a tight 28 pant to a comfy 17, tight 3x shirt to a lg and even shoes from a tight 11 to a 10 (and calf boots fit!) hair is still an issue. I cut it pretty short and it's starting to grow in again. Baby hairs are annoying but I keep thinking they will grow and I'll thicken up again. My brain has not caught up yet either. There are times I feel thin but other days I sometimes feel like the old me... until I pass a mirror.

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
