100 pounds is a massive loss!! I will be six months on 27th and I’ve lost 70 lbs. I’ve started to get hungry now so I think that hormone has returned. I had so much dumping and sensitivity at the beginning but now I can eat anything! Found the holidays difficult as so much temptation and tried chocolate for the first time since surgery and had the worst dumping ever. I’ve looked at doing the reset diet for a few days to see if the helps?
Highest weight 303 lbs
Surgery weight 275 lbs
Current weight 203lbs

I had surgery 3 days after you, and I am experiencing the horomonal return too and definite hunger. I did ask my surgeons office for the "reset" so that should help too if you are wanting to test your pouch etc. I didn't really eat anything out of the norm myself during the holidays, probably ate a little more than I should have though LOL!

I had mine on July 10th. I have stalled for 2 months. I also can eat anything now. Scares me. What is a reset and how do I do it?

Its basically where you do the same motions as you did right after sugergy with phase 1-4/5 depending on your surgeons "aftercare" guidelines. I would contact your office and ask if they have one. Mine did, funny enough because I thought it was just some rumor from the rumor mill with WLS patients, not so :)

You all have lost more than I have, you’re doing awesome! I had surgery on July 23rd, I started at 226 and now I’m 173. I’m hoping to get down to 150.

Considering your relatively low starting weight, you are doing very well! Keep it up, you're almost at goal!

You have to consider the weight that you start at but you are doing awesome. Keep it up. Some of us have more to lose so it looks like we may have lost a lot more than you have.

Thanks ladies! Slow and steady, I’ll get there. I had my 6 month check up, I’m at 166. My surgeons “goal weight” for me is 140 (I’ll be happy at 150 but don’t mind going lower) that will put my BMI at 25. I cant wait to finally have a summer that I’m not miserable!

Hey y’all I know it’s been a while. I had my surgery 7/27/18 heaviest 310, SW 280, CW 212 m, GW 160/170....pants size varies on style from 10-14.... I’m still pushing... I’ve had a few bouts with constipation but I’m getting better with stool softer n Probiotics which helps on top of lots of water.... I don’t go over 30 carbs per meal n 20 carbs per Snacks. I don’t eat bread, Rice, Pasta, potatoes, no pop, once n blue moon when Period hits I crave chocolate but I sub with Sugar Free Chocolate pudding. It feels good to lose n see the progress n pictures. I’m trying to get into journaling Period not just about food.

Wow wow wow. You look WONDERFUL and VIBRANT! You were gorgeous before as well, but you’re so full of life and look so much younger in the “after” picture. You’re my inspiration!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
