Well getting to your high school weight is huge!

My surgeon told me to aim for 80 lbs. Now that I'm past that he asked me if I was done. When I said no, he was surprised, and said I looked great. I told him not so much when I'm naked! :D

I'm 16 lbs away now too, and I know I'm not going to be satisfied there. I'm thinking 130 or so. As long as I don't lose my butt!

If the next 20-30lbs could strictly come from my love handles, stomach, and back... I'd be very happy.

Same!! I hate those....omg i didn’t lose 30 pounds in 3 weeks posts. Like i don’t want to insult anyone but i can’t help but laugh.

I also hate those “oh i eat slider foods all day, why am i not losing weight posts”

Lastly i also hate those posts from people who obsess over every little thing instead of just enjoy the process. Like relax already, take a xanax or something.😂

I feel like whatever it takes to keep you in the show is fine by me and we all have different needs. You're just probably more evolved than my little obsessive self. LOL ROFL! :lol:

@fluffychix congrats on your progress by the way!!! 123 lbs gone is impressive. I’m sooooooooooo proud of you. I would totally do a backflip, but lord knows i won’t be able to get back up 😂😂

LOL! I'd help ya get back up girlfriend, but then we'd have to log about it and wonder how many cals we expended in the back flip and the isometric exercise of pulling you up off your skinny asprin bottle! :lol:B):blink::rolleyes::D

I read it more as those post that say:

"OMG, I felt a twinge, should I go to the ER?"

"I took a sip of Water with my meal, did I stretch my sleeve??"

"My stomach gurgled, do I have a leak?"

Off topic ... but @AshAsh1 ... you are only 16 lbs away from goal!!!!! That is so exciting! :D:D:D

I noticed this too and I'm so excited for you @AshAsh1!!! Our starting weights and day of surgery weights are so similar and you are a huge inspiration to me. I dream about my weight starting with the number 1. You give me hope it will happen! Congrats:D

Have to add
"Why am I not losing as fast as others".... it's funny in this current social norm where everyone is unique and special that people are constantly trying to compare themselves to others... everyone is different, even a set of twins having the same surgery from the same doctor and doing everything else the exact same way, would lose at different rates.

And the others they choose to compare themselves to are of course the extreme of 20 lbs in the first two weeks, not the "average" person.

Or people of the opposite sex, or 8 inches taller, or 200 pounds heavier, or 30 years younger, or had a different surgery . . .

Or all of the above!

Or look at someone's pre op + post op weight loss combined!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:
      https://www.yourbariatricsurgeryguide.com/panniculectomy/ https://www.healthline.com/health/panniculectomy https://www.yourplasticsurgeryguide.com/tummy-tuck/panniculectomy/ https://www.plasticsurgery.org/reconstructive-procedures/panniculectomy/safety https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK499822/ I hope you find this information helpful. I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
