IM STILL 325# IM GOING TO WITHDRAW MYSELF FROM THIS CHALLENGE. I HAVENT BEEN EATING WRONG FOODS OR OVER EATING I HAVE BEEN STEPPING UP MY WORK OUT BUT CANT LOSE A POUND FOR A MONTH NOW. THIS IS VERY DISCOURAGING AND JUST NEED TO FACE REALITY THAT THIS ISNT FOR ME ANYMORE. IM NOT GOING BACK TO OLD WAYS OR ANYTHING BUT IM JUST NOT GOING TO POST ON THIS SITE. YES AND THE JUDGERS WILL SAY IM HAVING A PITY PARTY AND MAYBE THATS TRUE BUT FOR NOW THATS OK IM THE ONLY ONE INVITED.

Understood and no judgement. It can be very frustrating to stall out for long periods. I stalled for over a month during my active weight loss period. I bet your body is just adjusting to your new lifestyle, and will allow weight loss again soon. We are all here for you when you need us! :778_heartbeat:

No judgement from me. I was in a 3 week stall most of Nov/Dec. I was very upset and frustrated so I totally get it. continue doing the right things and it will get better. Wishing you only the best. Take good care of you.

I'm stalling too [emoji30] I've been 299 since about Christmas! I'm just a little past 3 week post op. It's very frustrating and discouraging but I keep reminding myself that there no way I won't keep losing weight. I've had surgery, it'll come with time. I've just backed off with how often I weigh myself so I don't get too upset. Best of luck to everyone!

Dropped the pound and then another. I'm surely not going to make 230 by next week, but I'll try!

I had to hid the scale because I became obsessed with it (pre op) I didn't own one, I only weigh myself at the doctors office. Now I weigh myself every week (only for this challenge) but normally every other Wednesday.

Omg, I was so happy to wake up New Year’s Day and see 159 on that scale. There today as well. I won’t make 154 by next week. But to be in the 150s, guys. Huuuuuuuge!

sadly I’ve lost more than half my hair, even losing this slowly. I’ve never lost 10 lbs in a month and barely 5 most months. And taking Vitamins and Biotin. Still having the Hair loss. It’s still worth it.

’Happy new year and thanks for this challenge. Never in my life have I lost weight over the holidays. What?! So happy.

I know I've missed the last couple weigh ins. I've been holding steady at 196lbs.

      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.

      I am OFFICIALLY SLEEVED! (surgery was Dec 9th, 2019)
      It was an easy procedure for me and I am not having complications. If you want to see part one of my journey go here: https://sabrinagoddess.com/life-on-the-other-side-post-op-wls
      I will be making new posts during this whole process!

        @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.....

        @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?

        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.
