That's amazing! What diet are you following?

Thank you! Doctor recommended high Protein, moderate carb, low fat but I'm finding a lot more success with high fat/protein and low carb (30g or less per day). I also feel a lot better doing low-carb :)

congratulations, you look fantastic. I was noticing that you don't have a lot of sagging skin. Are you exercising a lot? Also, how many grams of Protein do you think you eat in a day? Do you still do the shakes or do you find protein in other sources of food? Sorry about all the questions but I have hit a stall and any help you give me would-be great. Did you hit stalls along the way?

Thank you! Luckily my skin isn't as saggy as it could have ended up being but this is definitely a flattering photo in that regard haha. My upper thighs and around my belly button have little skin aprons from the weight loss. I don't exercise nearly as much as I should--probably 1-2x per week--and a standard day for me is probably about 75-95g protein, 50-60g fat, 10-20g carb. I only have a shake if I'm under 75g protein, but usually it comes from food, lots of meat in my diet. I just came out of a 2 month long stall, I thought I had just completely stopped losing weight but then had a whoosh of weight loss this week. How's your Water intake? Increasing water was the only real difference I made when my stall broke, not sure if it's coincidence or not. Best of luck and no need to be sorry for the questions, I'm happy to answer anything I can :)

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.

      5 days post-op revision from VSG to MGB. Back home, feeling great. No more gas pain. Only minor discomfort in the abdominals, rather like after having done a bunch of sit-ups. Definitely don't feel like eating anything. Don't even have the boredom hunger like I had before. Fluids are going down ok though so that's good. Going back to work tomorrow. Wish me luck.

      I'm considering the gastric sleeve; however I have crohn's disease. I'm wondering if anyone with crohn's has had the surgery and can share their thoughts with me.

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Hi, I’m scheduled for surgery on June, 24. I’m so excited, but nervous at the same time.
