Hi I started this journey in December 2016 at 316 lbs. My insurance requires a 4 month weight mgmt program with nutritionist and that I could not gain any weight. I have been on a liquid diet for 2 weeks and have only lost 8 lbs. I'm diabetic and I swear my metabolism is shot. Regardless of what I eat I seem to not be able to lose any significant weight. I have a lot of pain in both knees which need to be replaced and back pain. So exercising has been very limited for me. I'm getting nervous and excited at the same time. I can't wait to start this new lifestyle and hopefully eliminate some of the pain and medicine I currently take.

You can do this!!! I didn't lose much on my 2 week Protein Drinks. I WAS a diabetic also, insulin resistant and took 100units of Levermire 2 times a day plus 500mg of Metformin. Now I take 0!!! I use to take 12 different medications now I take 5 was 4 but just got started on Paxil for my ANXIETY and somewhat OCD LOL I have never been diganosed with OCD but I know and my family all know I have a small amount of OCD!!! I am 61 years old also. I was 57YO when I had my RNY. It is one of the BEST things I have ever done, it ranks up there with marring my bestie freind my hubby. Also having my children. I did have a few complications easy fix. If you ask me if I would do it again? With everything inside of me YES YES YES!!! Keep us posted on journey. Good Luck

I started at 316 pounds (this was in 2000) and my surgery date is 7/11 too. My scale didn't move for three months and I was hiking 6 days a week and those were 4-6 mile hikes. Then I got a foot injury and have been on my butt for 5 weeks and lost weight! omg It's very frustrating. Just keep on the plan. It will happen.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
