Thanks and you will get there, I think that it should be of interest to lose it at a slower rate so that your body proportions right. Do forget once you're cleared to get back into the gym because then you can tone it to prevent so much excess skin! Good luck to you, if you are determined don't stress about it, you already took the first step to get sleeved now thats all you need to do is believe that the sleeve will do its job, and be sure to do yours :).

Sw prior: 245

Surgery date weight: 225

Ca: 178

Weird question your legs are similar to mine in calves although I think my calves are bigger. How has the loss effected their measurements? I find in jeans I could go down a size everywhere but my calved ahh. I started at 17 1/4 and now they are 16 1/4 .

This makes me happy. I was ,244 on surgery day. 50lbs by 3 months 70+ lbs 6/7 month. But now it's really wanting to slow down. I'm embracing that the closer I am to goal the slower it will go. But makes me feel better that I'm doing well but who created this chart on what calculations

I started on jan 22 at 216 and 5’1 doing Meal Replacement shakes twice a day and then the third meal low carb lean protien and green veggies for 3.5 weeks .. i Then had to do 1 week all liquid diet before surgery. By feb 23 I was down to 194lbs the day of surgery. By end of week 2 I was 179 (so -15lbs two weeks post op) I did walk at least 10K steps as recommended by doctor everyday except the day of surgery and 2 days after recovery. I’m religiously low carbing and getting in all of my liquids and protien and Vitamins. No cheating for me. Cravings and hunger basically gone. I have to set a timer to remember to “eat” but really drink my Protien. I’m Averaging about 500 cal a day. I’m now in middle of week 3 and have stalled doing exactly the same thing as before. However I hear that week 3 stall is very common. Def worth it for me and like anything if you put in the work your results will be better. Also walking helps your heal faster and lose weight faster. From hours after surgery my doc wanted us walking a lot. Like every hour nurse was waking me up to walk for 15 min. It was annoying at first but honestly I’ve had no gas pain.

I don't post pictures online of my self. Neither do I even post pictures of myself on Facebook for my friends. Who ever sees me sees me face to face . I'm a private person.

Thank you for posting on here. I personally love hearing the journey of those who are going before me that way I can follow your tips. I've read everything I can online however following the footsteps of someone who is currently in the situation helps with not only feeling alone on the journey but being able to swap ideas to get us all through those tough times!

I'm 5'3. Weight before Surgery was 228lbs. Day of Surgery I was 221. Today I am eight months post op and weigh 167lbs. I have lost 61lbs in 8 months. Keep in mind, my diet has not been the best and I do not exercise yet.

I feel like my diet pre and post op are very strict.

PreOp and up to 7 weeks after my surgeon will not allow me to have any solid food.

Does anybody else have a diet this strict?

· 2 weeks preop diet: Protein Shakes and Clear Liquids only

· 2 weeks post op diet: Protein shakes and clear liquids only

· 3 & 4 weeks postop: I can add in creamy liquids

· 5 & 6 weeks postop: I can add in pureed foods

· 7+ weeks: I can slowly integrate solid foods.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

        I have threw up clear mucus every time I ate something that didn’t sit well with my stomach. I’ve been trying to get too ahead of myself though I had surgery September 22 I noticed that when I eat smaller slower bites I don’t throw up as much
