Great job!!! I was sleeved on January 17, 2017. I am down 94 lbs. I am extremely happy that I decided to take this journey. It has not been easy but I know it was worth it. I just take it one day at a time. I have been on a stall for 3 months now. I am just watching what I eat. I still have 20 more pounds to go to hit me goal. Any suggestions? Would exercise help? If so what kind?

Awesome!!! I have been in a stall for about 2 months myself. Im not sure what to do. I’ve increased cardio and weight training. It’s scary that I can eat more and my appetite has increased maybe due to the added exercise

Doing good here. Down about 85 pounds since surgery and about 120 since I started my WLS journey. Really wanted to hit 225 at the one year mark but didn't happen. Hoping with an upcoming job change that takes me away from a desk job to being more mobile that will help spark things again.

Got off to a rough start after surgery and the first month was hell, but pretty smooth sailing since then. It is hard to believe how quickly the past year has gone. Been a fun ride! :D

I think the coming years are gonna be the hardest. The weight loss is slowing and the appetite is increasing. Let’s keep each other motivated!!

Yep. Head hunger is still my biggest battle that I fight. I really don't crave the bad things of old, but that habits of feeling like I need to eat (like as soon as I get home from work, late evening, etc) are still there.

I was a diet soda freak before surgery. Haven't had it since so that was a big acomplishment for me. Don't really miss Pasta and breads. I'll have a tiny bit every once in a blue moon but I'm actually happier without it in my diet. I eat so much chicken I fully expect to sprout feathers one of these days.

Yesss! This head hunger I’m glad to know it’s not just me. I feel like I need to be eating even if I’m not hungry. I’m sick of chicken lol.

Head hunger is getting to me too! I have a desk job and I find myself wanting to snack all day. I wish I could get over this stall. I worry I may start to gain the weight back. As of now I do not drink enough fluids. Do you think taking in more fluids would help with weight loss start again? I feel since I am so close to goal it is just going to take more effort.

I’m in the same boat. These last 20lbs just don’t seem to wanna come off for nothing. Increasing your fluids may help to keep you from snacking as much.

Nothing really new to report on my end. Did the low carb thing again and didn't really see any changes. Back to the usual diet again. Don't think I'm going to see the scale move anytime soon unless I can get my not as big as it used to be ass back outside and walking on a regular basis. It's in the mid 30s today so feels like a heat wave! Hoping my upcoming job change will see me being more active again and help get things moving.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
