Hi there. Good luck with the consult. I wrote down all my questions when I went to see my surgeon.

I’m working on my list. As I read through these forums and research I’m writing down everything.

I doing better now that I’m barely 3 months post op and have been going to the gym religiously. Had a few moments of WTF when the scale wasn’t moving but now that I’m in gym beast mode it’s coming off. Got a ways to go but I’m happy with how it’s going so far. How long did it take you to reach goal?

Hey. Glad to hear. I went down from 360 to 195 in 6 months. I had surgery May 29 and by November I lost all the weight. Gym is definitely necessary. Unfortunately I stopped for 5 months while I took care a few family situations and ended up gaining 25 lbs which have me upset but I know why. Now I’m getting back into that gym and since it’s warming up I can take my bicycle out.

WOW you lost a lot of weight very quickly! Sorry to hear you experienced family issues but it’s part of life and we have to roll with it. It definitely proves that the surgery isn’t some magic thing and that we still have to work at it. I hate when people think or say that it’s a cop out to just doing diet and exercising. If I could have done it without the surgery I would have. God knows how many times I’ve lost weight and just gained it all back. We still need to do our part. Hopefully the weather will change and you can get back into your exercise routine. I don’t know if I can take anymore of this snow [emoji301]️ UGH!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
