90lbs down from pre surgery weight. Generally fit and happy and bin is now 24.8. Still want to lose another 10-15lbs, but not fretting about it.

food is ok: sometimes portions are difficult when eating out and I constantly worry I'll eat too much. Worst I've had from overeating is bloating/gas - but that's not been terrible.

Exercise is my next mountain. Moved so stopped swimming at work and need to push myself...

Well done! You sound like you've done so well! Since surgery I have lost 4 stone (56 pounds). Like you I always worry that I've eaten took much; I just worry about gaining weight! My portion sizes are small and I've noticed that as the day goes on I can't eat as much in the evening as I could at lunch time. On the rare occasion I do over eat I feel terrible (nauseous) & I learn from it to try and judge the amount it took to feel that way. I do finding drinking in front of people especially in the morning embarrassing as my stomach can be so loud!!!

Exercise is my next mountain but I've been so tired to do anything but I will start soon as I need to tone up!

I don't regret having the bypass one bit, in fact it's been SO life changing that I feel proud of myself that I had the courage to have it done!

Wow that's brilliant!!! I am really pleased for you. I haven't lost as much as you, in fact not even close! I was 223 pounds (clothed) on my surgery date and now I am 153 pounds (clothed). So I've lost 5 stone so far. Fit comfortably in a UK Size 12. People are telling me daily not to lose anymore weight stating that my face is looking too drawn in but I want to get into my healthy BMI range which is anything under 10:10 (150 pounds).

What does your average daily diet look like?

sometimes add a Protein Bar and do snack a bit on fruit but not loads.

Last night I was out to dinner and had a starter - slice of toast, rocket crab and avo. Had had Protein bar earlier to keep protein level up. Haven't lost any hair and skin is really not too bad - although still unlovely!

Thank you. It's surprising how little it takes to fill us up, it's amazing! I'm so pleased to have had this op too, my life has changed forever....sometimes it's difficult or awkward when I go out with friends (as they don't know) but it's a small price to pay to be healthier, thinner and happier! Keep up the good work & please keep in touch...your doing amazing and it gives me more inspiration [emoji13]

Hi guys! I'm so happy to have found this post! My RNY was last December 6th so I guess we're all about the same distance from our surgeries :) I've been looking for other people from last December so I'm thrilled to have found you all!
I was 240 at my highest- 226 at surgery and I'm only down to 185 [emoji37] I'm following my plan and getting plenty of Protein and Water but I've been this weight since March! I've. It lost anything since March! Im just beside myself with frustration- I admit that I'm only at the gym about 2 days a week lifting with my trainer- and I could be doing more cardio- (I do about 30 minutes at the gym each time I see the trainer) - but I'm just not motivated for any of this anymore-
I've only gone down 2 sizes and though I can wear a size 14 pants- I can't wear a tight shirt with them due to muffin top- lol- my body Fat has gone from 50% (crazy, right?) to 34% so I know I'm much healthier but I've just lost the hope and excitement about this working-
Does anyone else feel like this?

Hi, sorry for the late response! It sounds like you have done well. Remember everyone is different. Your body fat has reduced a lot! What does your average food & Fluid intake look like?

Should I ask for a surgery date or do they automatically just give it to you? October 17th will be my last visit to my PCP and he will sign off on my 3 month diet plan. I have my Cardiologist and Psychologist appointments already in September. All of my other test/requirements have been completed. Now I see people on here who have surgery dates scheduled all the way to December. I don't want to rock the boat but I don't want to wait until the last minute either. I must have this done before the end of the year due to my deductible having met completely met for this calendar year.

      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.
