@moondoggie1983 Thanks :) I woke up today 3 lbs lighter so my stall has broken. I am celebrating being in the 260's! It seems unreal that only 3 1/2 weeks ago I was 298 lbs.

I am working on upping my liquids, I know it helps with the weight loss. There is where I put all my Protein too. 3 scoops of protein at 30G per scoop so I HAVE to drink it and not waste the expensive Protein Powder.

No problem! I stalled for 10 days and was really down/frustrated about it. Now I’m 5 down in a week. Nuts! I’m between my 800-1000 calories a day now and I’m getting my protein from food as a whole. My program doesn’t want us using very much protein powder or shakes long term. I still put a shake in my diet once in a while, but I’m hardly using my powder. The best thing I’ve found so far are these turkey burgers that have 35g of protein in each one! One lasts about a meal and then a snack. Or 2 meals depending on how I’m eating that day. Add 2 pieces of cheese and there’s another 10 more grams of protein. Good stuff! I never get anywhere near the 90g but I usually get about 70-75. Most days I get at least 50 oz of fluids, but I too still struggle there. I think it’s because I was diabetic and always thirsty before, but now I’m not. I have to make a conscious effort to remind myself to take a drink.
As for celebrating, I’m right there with you! I mean I was 311 lbs 14 months ago! I can’t believe I’m in the 220’s and so close to being a full 100 lbs lighter!!! Insane! I know I’m going to totally lose my sh*t when I hit 211. 😂
I can hardly believe we’re doing so great!! Keep me posted on how you’re doing! I really look forward to seeing your successes and celebrating with you!

@moondoggie1983 That is a really good thing - not really on Protein powder because it makes you very conscious on reading labels and getting to understand your nutrition. I need to start doing that myself. Fortunately I LOVE cheese too. I buy the string cheese in the individual packages so I know the calories and nutritional info exactly.

I00 lbs is amazing!!! Throw a party :) I am planning on a big celebration when I do. Thanks for the encouragement

Hello All,

I am a little over 5 weeks out and 30 lbs. down. I am 12 lbs. away from Onederland which I am very excited about. Some of my clothes are starting to fit big and most of my clothes are just starting to fit comfortably. This surgery has been a big confidence booster. I am feeling a bit tired but I attribute the fatigue to my lack of Protein. I'm in my soft foods stage now so I'm going to try Protein Bars because I'm tired of Protein Shakes. Mentally, cravings and hunger are getting easier. I'm really happy for everyone, this was the best decision we could've made for ourselves.

That’s awesome!! I had surgery May 7. I was 358 surgery day, 8 pounds higher the day I left the hospital, I guess from Fluid and gas...today I was 322.

2 months, 23 days since surgery. Life is really getting back to normal now. 41kg down from my January 2018 weight and 24.2kg down since surgery. Just dropped under 115 for the first time in years! Still, a long way to go from my goal but i'm getting there.

        What would you normally do?

        Instead of planning a meal, what about an activity that you enjoy.

        If the weather is nice, plan a picnic and explain that you are not eating and will not be providing a cake instead if you wanted you could have birdseed bags that people could use to feed the birds or the ducks in a pond at the park where the picnic would be held. Everyone could bring their own lunch if they wanted to attend and you would only have to make little birdseed bags.

        If nature walks are more your style, do something along those lines and just let everyone know that for your birthday you are planning an activity and not a party. There will be no cake and ice cream if that is what they are looking for, they can just stay home.

        You could ask your friends to join you in a day of caring and you could all volunteer together somewhere either serving at a soup kitchen, helping at a shelter or a children's center or even a senior center.

        Of what?

      2. GreenTealael

        Of what indeed. I thought at first I should give up coffee, nonsense.h Then I thought I should go out for coffee with friends more. Then I thought I should go to Italy for coffee with friends and get a new maker...

      Hi i'm dorijae, and into my pre-op evals, still undecided as to sleeve or bypass, but thinking bypass.  Happy to see this support group.  Have read some of the blogs on surgery, etc.

        Welome dorijae2018, there are lot of supportive people on the forums, if you have any questions many are only too happy to help

      2. Sosewsue61

        Welcome. We are pretty friendly most of the time. Use the spyglass search option at the top of the forum page to find specific topics. We all decide on the type of surgery based on our current personal health conditions, what we prefer our outcome to be, and research we do. Some prefer bypass because they have consistent GERD, or fear getting it, some want a little faster initial weight loss, or consider it the best standard in bariatrics. Others prefer the sleeve because they do not want malabsorption of vitamins - particularly iron, want their stomach to have the valve and vagus nerve stay intact, don't want a pouch that can stretch, and lose just a little slower over a longer time frame. The real outcomes for overall weight loss is not much different in either surgery at the 18 month mark. It is a very personal decision and don't let anyone make it for you. Read and read some more and ask your surgeon a lot of questions. Good luck.
