Wow, I'm about 10 lbs from that right now at 3 months. I wonder if that is your weight at surgery or before getting into a program. If I use my day of surgery weight, I'm nowhere close to where I should be!

So the day you go under the knife or the day you start the pre-op diet plan? That was very different for me. Not trying to be dense, this just has me a little alarmed.

That chart is pretty accurate for me!! Was about 320 pounds on day of surgery and three months later, I was 268 pounds.

Really accurate for me too. Started at 289 and exactly 3 mos later I’m 240! I’m really hoping I️ get to 200 by 6 mos ( as the chart reads) but I’m losing 10 pounds a month so that’s 30 not 40 pounds. I️ guess I’d take 210 anyway. At 5’8 I’d look pretty good at 210! Thanks for the chart. It’s a great visual.

My co-worker across the room from me (it's not a big room) opened a Coke and I swear to Xenu, my head turned so fast towards him, I wonder if I gave myself whiplash. I haven't had soda since a couple weeks before the surgery... [emoji20]
But hey, so far I've lost 40 pounds and I have roughly 136 more to go. [emoji4]

I️ have no had Diet Coke in so long. I️ think I’m good through the winter but once summer comes I️ know I’ll want it!

I wanted those who were being discouraged about their weight loss to see what the average person who is following all rules should be losing and have a good idea of what they will lose in the next year. This is absolutely accurate for me, i was 244 and now im 207. So right on target!

Why would you want Diet Coke? It's not like we drink this stuff for its nutritional content. Why not try something like chocolate milk or Water? Either is more nutritional and tastes a HELL OF A LOT BETTER.

Pretty accurate for me. Started at 304 now 245 at 3.5 months, can’t wait to see what it will be at a year.

Thank you for posting that. I’m really glad you did. I may take that along to my next doctor visit because according to that chart I am ahead of where I should be so it’s doubly encouraging.

No, looking at your numbers you look pretty good to me. About 7 pounds difference. Keep the big picture in mind. 😊

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
