( please excuse the picture of me my underwear I just really wanted to see my stomach without the baggy pants I had on) this is no way a before and after because I'm not done with my after at all this is definitely a during

Don't compare me to a chart, your journey, his journey, her journey, what your doctor said.. What you read.. Anything! I lost the weight and that's that.. And it's only the beginning!

This is not about what is realistic. It is not the OP to tell others what to expect.
Your first comment was " its unrealistic" no weldone or congrats. I think saying you were happy for her in the original comment not after she called you out.
You can not put the responsibility on the OP if people do not know realistic outcomes.
You want many to succeed but not those who lose like the OP? Only those who lose slower or more average get a weldone?
I am a believer that all deserve a weldone, 1 lb or 40lbs. But that is just me.
Bringing one down to prove to others this is not usual? I think its clear it is not average and you should trust that people can research themselves.
Even 28lbs in 2 weeks is unrealistic FOR ME. I do not go round commenting such on each weightloss post lol.
I am off this post.
Have a nice day. Maybe you can say weldone next time aswell as inform people of the 'average'.
WELDONE OP We are all working at it , and no matter how small or how big we all deserve a congrats on this journey [emoji4]


Thank you!! Thank you thank you!! That's all I was saying I felt like I was being put down on something I worked for, especially by someone who doesn't know me at all. But it's all good, in six months I will post my unrealistic side by side

Once again, for the THOUSANDS that read these posts and are looking into Wls, 40 lbs in 2 weeks is almost unheard of... (and it turned to 28 lbs in 2 weeks and 3 days ).
The 28 lb amount seems more realistic for the many who are trying. Even those who lose 5 lbs in a week should be happy .
I'm just a 10 year post wls realist who wants many to succeed, but be healthy and realistic of the outcomes.






I do not think the original poster is being nasty, she is being told she has her dates wrong and all sorts. I wont be posting my victories on here, id react the same if i was ripped to shreds just because your 10even 20 years in the game doesnt mean they know it all lol


I'm not here to make someone believe what's realistic or not so I'm supposed to downplay my journey or not post my victories just for someone else to believe was realistic or not? Come on now that makes no sense.. you want realistic go to your doctor and get a chart you don't go on a site and look at other people and judge them.

You know, Dr. Matthew Weiner talks about "super responders" to the surgery. Perhaps we are seeing one now!

Dont have to thank me! I would have felt exactly the same, and I would have reacted less diplomatically so she is lucky it was not my picture she was commenting on or it would have ended differently lol. Keep up the good work! I hate all this bitchy competition thats covered up with " hey I'm a vet" I do not care vet or newbie gives no one the right to come on someones thread and make it some kind of campagn for their view that is not what this post is about, she could have rolled her eyes and created her own post lol :) You are inspiring :)

That is what the forum is. A mixture of everyone's views. Everyone is entitled to their opinion....

I can see it has only been weeks you have been here and I think you will see that people post their own ideas and experiences.

Many people read these and that is why the information needs to be realistic....

Losing 40 lbs in 2 weeks sounds like a tv commercial... and though it was true, 3 days later there was a 12 lb gain. That needs to be clear for others looking into wls results. Imho

Hi Chynadoll619, just wanted to put my two cents in now that I am 1week post-op lol. Ive been following this thread for awhile and it realy hurt me that you were getting bashed for your results appearing to be "unrealistic". I wanted to wait before I commented because I wanted to make sure I had facts to back up my comment. So I just wanted to tell you that I am definitely experiencing the same experience as you with the lbs just melting away [emoji4]. It does seem unrealistic but girl lol it is very realistic. I have lost 20lbs and I'm only 1 week post op. Keep in mind none of this 20lbs of weight loss came from my pre-op diet. I didn't loose any weight on my pre-op diet witch I didn't understand. But any way I couldn't loose that much in one month so loosing this much in just one week is crazy to me. Like you have mentioned in prior remarks everyone's body is different which means everyone's weight loss is going to be different. In God's eyes NOTHING is unrealistic. So with that being said keep your head up don't let know one discourage you from your journey, and I wish you much more success. You go girl [emoji1]

To be honest, I was in pain the first week, after that I was totally fine.. The site where they pull your stomach out hurts the most

My doc said they stitched a muscle there. That's why it hurts. It took about two weeks to stop hurting.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
