I set a goal today of 3 pounds per week- does that sound realistic?

Yes, I think for right now 3 sounds about right.

It does surprise me sometimes that it's not more since I'm eating under 800 cals per day and burning over 2200.
But at least the scale is going the right direction!

So I'm almost 7 weeks out and getting bored with food. I'm doing lots of tuna salad and cottage cheese and cheese sticks and fish. Anyone got any good food ideas or recipes they are starting to use?




I am so with you!
One thing I love though is zucchini noodles with spaghetti sauce! I got a spiralizer and make noodles out of zucchini- tried adding carrots last week and it was wonderful - added just a little more flavor. I got mine in Amazon for around $20.

Im struggling with adding food I shouldn't eat because I can tolerate almost anything now. I'm wondering it that is really that bad if I watch my calories and get my Protein in. I have had a single small piece of pizza 3 times- usually on date night.

Hi June Sleevers! So I was doing pretty good but the last week and a half I have hit a huge stall. Only lost one pound in a week and a half. Before it was almost a lb a day. I haven't changed much. Getting between 700-800 calories a day. Getting 60oz of Water and around 70-80g of protien. Anyone else starting to stall??

Yes. I stalled for 2 full weeks now am losing again slowly. Stalled at 192.8 now I'm 190.2. I have started walking more though. And when I averaged my weight loss it's exactly what the dr said it would be- around 20 the first month and 10 each month after. I think we expect it to fall off because we are eating so little but that's not realistic I now see.

Hi all! Hope everyone is doing well since surgery ... I'm 8 weeks out so far I'm down 35lbs since surgery day! Here is my 2 month picture ... one was 4 days prior to surgery & the other is this past wednesday ... I thankfully can tolerate 99% of anything ... I've noticed cold cuts (roast beef in particular) is something I can't, other than that I'm doing great! This was the best decision I've ever made!

Hi there, fellow June sleevers! Glad to see everyone kicking butt! I'm in a bit of a stall right now, but overall things have been going well. I went on vacation for a few weeks at the end of July and probably snuck in some carbs that I should not be eating right now (or ever), and am trying to stay on track with Protein, Water and logging my food. Fortunately, I was able to be very active on vacation and do many things I would not have been able to just a few months ago. Need to gather up some "good" before pictures now that I have plenty of after/during pics. :)

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

      hello all i have a question i have cigna and i called them personally to ask if they cover the weight loss surgery and they told me off the bat that they do not cover weight loss surgery. my question is should i have my dr submit something in writing?

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

      2. GradyCat

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
