Im so excited for today. I got the go ahead to start exercising so I joined the ymca. I have my first training appointment in an hour! I'm hoping this enhances my weight loss and helps me avoid some of the loose skin issues.

My surgery was June 19. Good recovery--I was back at work in 2.5 weeks. I'm eating gentle real foods now and supplementing with at least 1 Protein shake/day. Around 400-500 calories/day. I have been on a weight plateau for about a week now after losing 25 since surgery.

One thing I have noticed is that while I have more energy throughout the day, once I get tired I hit the wall. It's good to be aware of this and take care of myself by getting enough rest.

And of course, when I hit the stall my inner tape recorder started up with "You are eating too much!" Hah! 500 calories of 95% protein? I think not! (That is my reply to the tape recorder).

I am so glad I did this. I'm 62 and I'll be retiring in a few years. It's so great to know that I will not retire as an invalid but as a healthy active person looking forward to the next thing.

AuntB- we are on the same page. I was too young to feel this old! I'm 55- when I have grand babies I want to have fun with them! I want to travel and run the globe when I'm retired! I actually have a goal in the back of my mind to do a causetrek and climb the inca challenge In Peru with Compassion International!
Im on a plateau but it will break soon.
I just finished my first workout with a trainer and it felt great! Small goals to strengthen my core and increase my cardio ability!

I too have that recording in my head until I look at my intake... I track every morsel on Spark People. That really helps.
Glad to meet you!

Hey, fellow June sleepers! I'm Shari, and I'm a middle school English teacher. I'm 32 years old and 5'8" tall. I began my journey on August 12, 2016.

At my heaviest, which was 9 years ago, I was at 287. When I began my pre-op diet on May 18, 2017, I was 277 pounds. My surgery was at 7:00 am on June 1, 2017, at which point I weighed 264 pounds. As of today, I'm down 44 pounds.

HW - 287; SW - 277; CW - 234; GW - 150s

Hey everyone! Sleeved June 8, down 29 lbs. The last 2 weeks have been slow going, but still moving in the right direction, so I'm not too worried.

Had a bad food day yesterday but pretty much maintained with 199.4 today and 199.2 yesterday. Back on track today though - my goal is to get my 64 oz of fluids in today as I haven't gotten that much yet - usually I hover around 48 oz but yesterday wasn't even 24 I don't think because I kept munching and was waiting to drink. Stupid!

Sigh. I have been the same weight for 8 days now. I have a scale that weighs to 0.1 pounds and I am amazed that I can be the EXACT same three days in a row. At least I'm fluctuating 0.4 pounds or I would think my scale was broken! But like Dory I'll just keep swimming, just keep swimming....

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.
