Don't meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with catchup!

I was sleeved on 10/25/17. I'm only down 8-9 pounds and I have already hit a stall. I feel like I should be further along than this.
I have started my pureed diet. I have not experienced issue with tolerating foods. I feel like my sleeve was not made small enough.
Trying to stay positive but this is so discouraging.
Same for me. But I'm down 12lbs.

I didn't have a 'honeymoon' year one, in all honesty, it's been fighting tooth and nail in this first year. My weight has been in the low 190's high 180s for a long time, 6 months too long. But, we can be our own worst enemy or best ally. I think we are doing a bang up job! Some lose weight quicker than others, I look at it this way. We are slower yes, but it further solidifies good habits in place. I have been moving in a smaller size but same weight direction. Inch loss, so heck to the yes we rock! I rock! If anyone would like accountability please PM me or let's perhaps start a thread or something. I've not been in this size and weight range for 12 years!

I know my one year update is a little late, but still wanted to chime in and say how great everyone is doing!

The last few pounds are so hard to lose, I still have 10 lbs to go to meet my goal weight, but I will get there. I really wanted to reach that goal by my wedding date, but I didn’t get there. It’s hard not to get discouraged or become unmotivated, but when I think about where I was a year ago, I’ve come a long way and I have to push through. I know I can do it. Positive mindset is key!

Here are progress pictures. Hopefully soon I can add when I meet my goal weight (fingers crossed)!

I was sleeved on 10/30/18, had some respiratory complications, aside from that, the surgery was a walk in the park.
I’m 4 weeks post-op today and lost 17 lbs since surgery and 27 lbs since pre-op diet.
I feel I need to exercise more frequently as I hit a 10-day stall now and don’t know what to do. I am having 700-800 calories a day and 70-80 grans of Protein, drink 64 oz of Water but my exercise routine is very unpredictable: there are weeks I work out most of the days and others I don’t...losing motivation and that can’t happen...how do you guys keep motivated and a positive mindset?

Almost everyone seems to stall somewhere in the 3-5 week range, and it lasts for some a couple weeks. This is regardless of what they do exercise wise, or food wise for that matter. I freaked when it happened to me and I had to research a lot to feel better. Stick with your program, keep up with the Protein and Water and exercise as you can...but know this is normal.

I was sleeved 10/30/17 and I’ve lost 136 pounds. This week I had a full knee replacement and I’m really happy to get to this point. I’m 60lbs from my goal weight. With my new knee I’ll be able to workout more. But life is better, and I’m glad I had the weight loss surgery.

Hi Xiolia,

You can try doing some liquid fasts 3 days a week, it will help you reset. I'm in a monthly support group - face to face we talk, share stories. It helps me with accountability - I don't feel judged just supported.

I have had to really work on my emotional eating - it's tough but necessary. I also joined a gym and I go 3 days a week for an hour. I got a FitBit and I work on my steps.

Last week I had a knee replacement so I am very aware of what that means in terms of gaining weight again.

Be kind and loving to yourself.

Sleeved 10/17 ... from April 9 to surgery date .... lost 47 lbs with MWM and after surgery have lost an additional 20 lbs in the 6 weeks. I’m having trouble getting the 60-80 g of Protein in each day! I don’t want anymore protein shakes.. too sweet for me and I’m so over yogurt!
I’m great with my Water intake and hit my exercise goal each day! Love my treadmill!

I was sleeved 10/30/2018, I’ve lost 23 since surgery and 39 since my liquid diet. I’ve been at a stall now for 5 days. I know we aren’t supposed to compare ourselves but I feel so disheartened when I see others who are around my time losing 30+ pounds. I’m doing absolutely everything to the letter, Protein is well over 80 a day, carbs less than 30, I easily get 70 ounces of Water and Powerade zero a day and I eat around 700-800 calories most days (the others I fall a bit less than that.) I know I shouldn’t be weighing everyday. I’m literally driving myself nuts. I just feel that I’m on the lower end of the weight loss train and that bothers me. I guess it makes me question whether I’ll lose a lot long term or not. :/

I needed this. I'm 6 weeks post op. I'm loosing very slowly. I could give a bazillion reasons why I think I am but hey lets be honest, God made us different, So. Lol. But Anywho. I am my own worst enemy most days. Accountability yes! How do I PM you, I could use someone in my corner!!!! :) :780_sparkling_heart:

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        Glad you survived . lol

        @billybob I am thriving and breathing! That's a blessing!

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      3. Arabesque

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
