October 2016-Surgery Date. Where are you now?



Recommended Posts

Surgery 10/13/16

HW: 250

CW: 202

Exercising a few times per week. Need to do more.

I hoped to lose more but I am almost 62 and take an estrogen blocker since having breast cancer which makes you hang on to weight and lose hair. The doctor said keep doing what I am doing and the weight will come off. I use an app and log in everything. I end up taking in between 600-800 calories per day. No problem getting in my Water or Protein. It is still challenging some days.

Doing pretty good! I probably don't eat enough calories, as I am hardly ever hungry. Trying not to lose muscle.

I am an October 3 Sleeve also. I am down 48 lbs. Have had several maddening stalls. And am feeling much more hunger than I have up til now. The past few days I have been snacking and it makes me so angry. I am going to try going back to shakes for a few days to try and reset things. I haven't gained, but am so stuck at the same weight. Starting weight 214.......current weight 166. I know they say that a lower starting weight means slower loss. It really helps to see that others are struggling with the "dreaded stall" Just want a new middle number. I feel like I have been in the "60's" forever. I walk at least 2 miles a day and do weights 2 days a week. Don't know what else I can do.

Hey all! I've been wondering how and where everybody is at from the same time frame as myself. I had my surgery Oct 5th, I was between 263 and 266, I didnt want my exact wt the day of surgery. Today I am 224 but I have seen 223. For the last week and a half I have bounced between 225 and 227. Kind of like when I was at 254, I thought the scale would never move again. I dont even remember seeing the 230's, we were moving and the next thing I knew they were history!


Looks like the avg is about 40lbs in loss for this far out. Isn't that great?!!! I am starting Snap Fitness 24hr this week, very excited, I've always loved the way I feel after working out!


Now, other things... I feel flabby, eeeew! My boobies have fallen and they seriously cant get up, unless I'm in a sweetheart plunge line brazier! The back side of my undies fall down, butt has deflated! Oh and I have this bit-o-skin under my chin, like a turkey! Now for the food, unfortunates...I backslid during Christmas, boy those Cookies are so easy to get down! Whereas I've never had much of a sweet tooth, apparently the surgeon left that part of my stomach behind, because I have one now! Im trying to get more fruit in and dates, so that I dont eat any baked goods. I also dont do so well with whey any longer so I've chosen a vegan Protein... In fact I eat more vegetarian recipes as well. Beef goes over well (if its cooked soft, so I usually use my Power Pressure Cooker XL, or similar to that is an Instant Pot) but chicken, no so much. At times I crave carbs because my body will feel depleted even if my head doesnt think Im hungry...so I try to eat a healthier carb, such as potato salad made with avocado and no mayo, an egg and seasonings such as cilantro and green onion, etc., or a grain salad.. I think fast food tastes like crap and is a waste of calories (if I feel gross after eating something I try to engrave that into my brain!), but I do crave pizza now and then so I try to not have it in the house except for on a rare occasion. Some weeks are way harder than others, but I find if I eat two egg white bites nearing 4oz from Starbucks in the AM, along with a fruit or PB and banana two hours from that, a smart lunch, dinner and another snack Im good. Eating a hearty Breakfast with a lot of flavor helps me a great deal and it sticks to my bones. For the longest time I could only get between 2-3oz in weight in my belly, now depending if its a slider food that is still more on the solid side and not a Soup I can get between 3-4 oz in, 3oz is the best though, for me... thats if I havent had a muscle meat in my belly that day. Soups and purees are almost like Water to me, I can drink up to 12-15oz, not all at once. Whereas I once loved ice cold Water, it now feels hollow and odd in my tummy, so I probably get 32 of unsweetened ice tea in and the same amount of water per day.... this is not acceptable and I can tell by the dizziness that sets in and how dark my urine gets, I need to get more water in. Lately I have been dizzy on occasion, more water helps, I usually add sugarless Propel powder to my water and that helps even more! I do have more headaches than usual and as of this past week my IBS is bothersome after the first meal of the day, poss because Im sensitive to eggs and thats what Ive been eating in the AM.


HOW ARE YOU FEELING PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY??? Not everyday is great but we can make tomorrow, or even later better! Don't focus on your failures, meal plan instead, read inspiration and watch healthy cooks on YouTube for inspiration, don't watch MUKBANGS!


What I ate today:

  • Two egg white bites
  • Apple slices with peabut butter and a date
  • Sushi Rice
  • 1 Peanutbutter cookie
  • Non-fat greek yogurt, made locally, with a sliced banana and mashed strawberry sauce & granola
What I ate yesterday:

  • 2 egg white bites - 13g carbs 13gr Protein 170cals
  • 3oz split pea Soup (was still full from egg white bites)
  • 1/2 pc pizza (no end crust)
  • 2oz yogurt with granola, half a small organic banana
What I ate two days ago:

  • Thai Cashew Slaw ( I LOVE IT)
  • cheese wedge and almonds
  • More Thai Cashew Slaw (no mayo)
  • Pot salad - 1 baby red potato cooked and chopped, with 1 egg, 1/2 of an avocado, cilantro, herbs, green onion other seasoning. Mashed avocado with herbs and other seasonings to make a dressing
  • Raspberries
KEEP ON KEEPING ON!

I noticed that you listed "sushi rice". I've been craving sushi, but I'm worried about the rice. Is there a difference between normal rice and sushi rice?

Shana Lee- did you just describe me?!?! I could have written all of this as me! We had the same starting weight and are at the same weight now! My surgery was on 10/28.

Amen to the Cookies just sliding down over Christmas. I found those weren't a problem at all. And for sure my sweet tooth is in full effect. I think I am in another stall . So I am thinking of trying the pouch reset next week to see if it helps with my sweet tooth and stall.

Surgery date 4th Oct

Height 5'6

SW 255

CW 198

Total loss 57 lbs

I wonder how many of you snack (ie how many meals a day?) and what is your calorie goal?

I'm probably not getting enough calories and lately I've even been skipping breakfast and not eating until lunch. I'm tired and my arms and legs are aching. This is a sure fire sign that I need to get my butt in gear and my head back in the game.

So happy to have found this thread. Everyone is doing so well.

I am snacking more and more and need to stop. My calorie goal is still 800-900, but I am hungrier now. It seems to come in waves. Some days I can just have 2 shakes and dinner, and some days I want a bite of something every few hours. I think boredom is my big issue and the whole grazing thing was my big downfall before surgery. I am trying to make a concentrated effort to get back to 3 meals and that's it. Healthier for my head in the long run. I am just now hitting the 50 lb. loss mark. it has really slowed down. But still the best decision I have ever made.

Starting weight 245.

Weight this morning 185

Surgery date October 4th. 5 ft.8 in.

I don't know what I want my goal weight to be. I'm 56 and think I would be happy at 160.

I try to get my Protein and drink between meals. Probably eat 5 times a day something. 3 mealsand 2 Snacks.

I quit doing my fitness pal when my calories were always1000 to 1200 calories.

I have never had regretted having the surgery. I am tiring of Vitamins.

Some foods give me hiccups and sneezing. I'm associating th is with eating 1 or 2 bites more than I should.

Wish I had done this 10 years ago!
