Reached my goal weight and beyond!



Recommended Posts

I am 5 lbs blow my intended goal weight when I bought and paid for the surgery myself. Went to Wal Mart and bought myself a pair of Wrangler cargo pants in waist size 36 inches, which I haven't worn since high school, about 47 year ago). The surgery was about 3 years ago and I plateaued for about 1-1/2 years, but be patient and let this new discipline guide you through and you will be amazed where it will lead you!!!!

It's almost 2 years from my op and and almost a year which I plateaued, I need to lose another 20-30 pounds but is really hard! Any suggestions? I already lost 75% of my excess weight but still lots of fat on my legs, hips and tummy! My total excess weight was 70-75 pounds and lost 50-55 pounds! I need motivation! I know that my Water intake is not 64 0z but I am working on it and increasing it as much as possible!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
