Awww, great NSVs!! Clean checkups and new clothes! I was getting ready to go out last week and my shorts literally fell down to my knees LOL 16 W's. I was also thrilled, and got myself a couple of 16s.

Ok Fluff I think I can safely say I've read every page of your thread now! It was so funny (sorry) watching you go through those first few weeks of experimentation post-op! I'm going to be taking pretty much the opposite path in terms of nutrition and philosophy but I'm so thrilled to have you as a guide along the way! I "sparkleheart" you, my friend! :780_sparkling_heart:

Wooohooooo. Thought I would post this here for posterity and since I never really believed in my heart of hearts I would actually stick it out and do this thing. Jokes on me!

Today I hit my mythical 65% of EBW lost since surgery. This is the number that they use to calculate your goal for RNY surgery. They estimate that you will lose 65% of EBW--for me that end weight is 156lbs. I had 102lbs of EBW on my carcass as of surgery day and my "ideal" is defined as 120lbs for my height. So to reach 65%, I had to lose 66.3lbs and today I am down 66.4lbs since surgery. It did take me since Feb 20th to do it though--not like I tore up the ground with losses. But still--focused/obsessed/whatevs--I did it. I'd like to thank the Academy.

So I can stop right? Cuz I'm a big ol' loser?

Not EVEN!!!

My actual 1st goal is 150lbs. I guess I'll be back to post about that when I hit it (hopefully this year ;) ).

Here's my piccy update (click to enlarge):

Wow Fluffy, You are freaking inspirational. Six pounds to goal. I love how you are documenting your weight loss.

8 months (I think--this damn new math! hahaha) I'm at 151.6lb PP (pre-poopy/pre-coffee; the coffee and poopy cancel each other out with a -/+ 1lb :D ) and am 1.6lbs away from 1st Goal of 150lbs. Can't believe it. I am starting month 9 (I think--re:above new math issues)

I was 222.4lbs on surgery day and today have lost 70.8lbs (I think--ie nm). Maybe some of you with advanced math skills or more toes can help me out. :) If I divide that by 8, I get around 8.8lbs of loss per month which is about what she said to expect--maybe a little slower. But hey, that dog'll hunt! I guarantee it.

I'm not gonna post pics until I hit my 1st Goal. :) They'll probably look a LOT like the last one at 7months. I think I'm only 5lbs down and it's hard enough posting pics of myself.

Feeling pretty good--maybe having a few tum issues OUO (of unknown origin) right now. Will have UGI and U/S on Wednesday but I don't expect them to show anything and the doc may want to scope me--but I'm hoping we get to adopt a WAS (wait and see) philosophy. Potassium is a bit low at 2.9 and will retest tomorrow--but otherwise my labs look fine. :) Yay team.

I feel so much better--can walk up to 60 minutes at one go. Am slowly building strength. My asthma doc and I broke up a couple of weeks ago and he now only wants to be friends (if I have an infection) cuz I'm not on any more asthma drugs. I'm on the cusp of getting off of my last blood pressure pill -- I hope! We'll see. The Fluid around my heart continues to get smaller and smaller with each echo cardiogram, and I expect my oncologist to do back flips of excitement next month when we see each other. He will also refer me to my final breast reconstruction and my beloved PS dude. He's a sweetheart--they all are actually. I have a phenomenal team of docs, NPs, PAs, nurses, RDs, counselors, and other allied health workers to whom I give all the credit and all the credit for keeping me alive these past 7 years and who are now helping me reclaim my life!!!

Posting this. I borrowed from someone on Facebook. Thought the tips for maxing success through months 6-12 were pretty cool and worth consideration! So I may try a few! This is from Dr. Apel at Blossom. I don't know him at all. He's not my doc. But thought these were pretty cool!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
