At Christmas I had reached 41.6 BMI but right now I’m 37.8. I have been stuck at this for 3weeks, when I start their diet I hope it will drop further.

How big is your BMI? Mine is 46+ should I start cursing now to avoid a last- minute rush?[emoji51]

I'm @ 40. I saved up my cursing until I knew exactly how long I would have to do their diet. Then, I let it all loose. Afterwards I looked at every vgs post on Instagram and knew the 3 weeks was going to be more than worth it.
~note to self: keep doing exactly this every time I want to complain or cheat during my pre-op.

Ah babe--- You are going to land heads up and a smile on your face. A little pre- purgatory in advance, hell week afterwards, a few aches, a few pains as your body realigns. And then you dance in the sunlight[emoji93] chase rainbows[emoji304] and achieve all those things you've been dreaming about. And won't that be cool?[emoji14]

And best of all it is my hope and prayer to join you in the sunlight of good health[emoji14]

I've read that this is where a lot of people get a stall. So depressed, stall, it all sounds like week 3 is your body's rebound week. Better weeks ahead. [emoji4]

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
