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.

      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 😂
