Wednesday weigh in and I'm still at 167. Same as Friday... Not too worried though as I expect my loss will be slow for the last 30lbs or so to goal. You guys are doing awesome! Keep up all the great work. Much love xXx

Well this week isn’t going as planned, but next week will be different. Taking some of the stress out of my life will make things get back on track.

Thank you.

It's just the stress of moving, I'm sure you can understand.

I was officially down 75 pounds on Saturday. Today I’m 76 pounds down. I’m sick now and on steroids so I hope I maintain this or keep losing...

Steroids do make it quite tricky so don't be too hard on yourself. Aim to maintain. Hope you feel better soon xx

Hi again, friends!

Tomorrow will be the six month anniversary for my surgery! I have my 6 month follow up and I'm REALLY hoping I'm down 80lbs on their scale from the day of surgery. If not, it'll be wicked close. I can't believe how quickly 6 months has gone, and how much my body has changed. I am now a lower weight than I've been since probably Junior High. Sometimes I don't even recognize myself in the mirror!

I hope everyone else is doing well! :)

Looking good @kristin30! How did you get on at your follow up @yes_anastasia? I've only lost 1lb this week so I'm at 159. At least it's still going down I guess! 🤣 That's 103lbs in 6.5 months so I'm not complaining! Xx

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
