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!

      Happy Friday!
      Went to the surgeon this week for my 9 month follow up, a little early. I haven't seen him at my other follow ups (always a PA), besides the one time he called afterwards, but this time he stopped in and made a point to congratulate me. He said I'm doing amazing and to keep up the good work. I've shaved 25 points off my BMI, and down 142lbs at 8 months post op.
      I'm starting to really feel normal, not like a bariatric patient. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing. While I still have good habits, I don't think its  "hard work" anymore. I feel that I have truly changed my lifestyle. My new normal feels really good!
      Hope everyone is doing well.
      Much love,
      Ash

        Congratulations Ash!! That is amazing. I am so happy for you. woot woot :450_trophy:

      2. GreenTealael

        Congrats! I too feel *normal*

        It may be a good thing, I never wanted to struggle at this, and the most successful VETs don't appear to be struggling either...

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      2. SleeveinIL

        Were you up here??? I am sorry I missed you. My appointment was at 1:15 so it seems we may have just missed each other!!! When do you see him for the 9 month? Maybe we could meet up and say hi!

      3. AshAsh1

        Oh my gosh, that's a gag... we literally just missed each other! It was technically my 9 month appointment, even though I'm only 8 months post op. I missed my 6 month, so I went a month early to my 9 month. I probably won't be back up until my year appointment, but if I come sooner, I'll be sure to let you know!
