Hi Annette! I am so excited to see someone else from Ocean County. I’m from Manahawkin and was sleeved 3/7.

Ha! I was so confused. Doing okay - down 25 pounds so far. I have been struggling to get in my Protein and Water so still held back on the diet. I want to get in more time working out, but can’t decide on a gym or exercise routine. I used to go to the Max, but it is expensive and I don’t feel like I have enough energy on the limited diet to get through that work out. How are you doing since you are a week ahead of me? What kind of exercise do you do?

I joined Planet Fitness which is very inexpensive and they have tons of machines. Right now I’m focused on just cardio anything to get a sweat going. I usually do the treadmill or elliptical machine. Having really done the strength training machines yet but will once I lose more.

I'm doing ok,it's just a struggle to get my Protein in. I'm down 60 pounds now. I have back issues so I decided to work with a physical therapist for a few months first. I do that twice a week and it's been working out pretty well for me.

NewJerseyMom, 60 pounds is awesome! You must feel so much better already. And AnnetteNJ, thanks for the tip on Planet Fitness. There are few gyms by me, but there is a Planet Fitness by my job. I will check them out this week.

You are welcome. You really can’t beat it for $10+ a month and most are open 24/5 so they make it easy to workout according to your schedule. Nice showers and lockers. If you chose the Black membership it’s $20+ but you get to use ANY Planet Fitness facility in the country. I just went to Miami last week and used one and I’m off to a Chicago in 2 weeks with Work and found one 1 block from where I will be staying so it’s good for me. And you can bring a guest with you to work out everyday for free, unlimited.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
