Overall doing well, although I’m still worried I’m eating too much volume (ie 4 oz ground turkey looks like a lot to eat but I can no problem for a meal.

Super happy with results so far but notice a slowing now. Need to exercise more :)

Hello,

My surgery was Dec. 13 and I’m down 57 pounds. It’s been really rough for me. I had a leak and almost died and I’m still recovering. I’m improving little by little, very slowly.

My weight loss has been good, and I’m really happy with it. I’ve just hit my first stall, but I know to just keep working on it and it will eventually pass.

It's coming. Just be patient and trust the process. I struggle with being impatient a lot of the times and I have to remind myself to relax and let the surgery work. Only 3 months out. It'll crank up in no time.

Hey guys!

I too am a bit over three months out now. Weight loss is definitely starting to slow down here too. I can eat more than I thought I would be able to....4 ounces of ground chicken or turkey, a cup of Soup or chili goes down well, I tolerate salad very well too. I am not tolerating whole chicken unless shredded. So am not going to try steak or pork yet.

My post op visit is the 21st with the surgeon. Was hoping to be under 300, not going to make it. I guess I’ll see what he says about my progress.

I’m trying to be pleased about it. It’s frustrating when you still have another 100 to lose, but focusing on moving forwards instead of dwelling on the past is more important. I’m losing about three pounds a week, sometimes zero, sometimes five or six so it all averages out.

My biggest supporter in this is my twin and she is super proud of me and how well I’m doing so far.

Its time to focus more on activity now I’ve gotten some weight off I’m more mobile and can move better.

Love hearing updates from all you December peeps!

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

        I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Do what you need to do to stay healthy mentally and physically. I hope you can get to the other side of your depression. Hang in there.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
