WOW! You and @Hal711 are killing it! Weight is flying off. I've read that after a stall another big loss is coming. :)

I had a stall for about 2 weeks and then got a stomach bug - bluhh. But then ive lost 11 lbs since the bug left. My goal was to lose 107 lbs. I am now at 71 to go. Whoo! Lol

I understand the feeling, @ALFxRNY! It was really affecting me mentally too. Can you E-Mail your office and explain your concern and just see what they say? I think what helped me was adding calories. I'm eating way more these days than last week. I've probably doubled my intake.


I will probably call and ask. I need to ask about my incision in my belly button as well. That area doesn’t stay dry in this heat so it isn’t really healing and it has some pain

@ALFxRNY - You're lucky you got that belly button incision. I've heard those are super unnoticeable and disappear. I have the huge left side incision that is pretty bothersome but is getting better day by day. By next summer's heat, we'll all be complaining how cold we are. ;)

I have 2 on the left side of my tummy that are healing okay, one under my breasts that is healing the best, and another right in the center of my tummy that looks awful! My incisions from my ports are healing okay as well. The belly button one is giving me problems because I have a big belly and the belly button is kind of deep. I hope to have that complaint next summer, lol

Yuck on the 2 week stall and the bug. Guess we'll begin to get used to them as our bodies try to redistribute and catch up. We have similar stats! I want to lose 100. 25 down and 75 to go. I feel like this is a good first milestone.

@ALFxRNY - The one under my breast is practically gone and healing the best too! Here's to happy healing for all of us! Have you started any scar treatment yet? I was thinking I better hurry and pick up some mederma.

I didn’t even think about scar therapy. Have to look into it. Right now all of my incisions (except for the one under my breasts and the one in my belly button) are super scabby. I’m so afraid of doing anything that might mess up their healing. And yes to happy healings for all of us! And what is it about the under breasts incisions healing so fast?! lol

Hi all from down under. Pleased to be in the loop of everyone’s updates. I too have experienced the stalls. It really plays with the mind. Still not getting enough fluids in. The dietitian told me that losing 1kg a week is the desired amount. Prior to stall I was losing at least half kg a day. I too also still weigh myself daily, but don’t get hung up on it. Same thing with the scars, under breast gone, belly button itchy, and left side a nuisance, but pain has gone. Body has adapted well and now all areas functioning well, especially since soft foods. I am back at work crossing children and have noticed being winter here that I feel colder. My uniform is hanging lose too. I may feel colder due to the weight lose, but then again the weather we are experiencing may also be colder. I will know for sure when we get to summer, as I hate the heat. Had to take my rings off as they have become too lose and I am afraid of losing them and will have to get them resized. Watching is spinning around my wrist, lol. Keep up the great work and for those still experiencing some set backs, please check them out. I now weigh 96.6 kgs

Wahoo! Finally, broke my 3 week stall after 8 days of no weight loss! I'm down 25 lbs. now (including pre-op diet). YAY! How's everyone feeling?
I also had a super annoying stall. Mine was about 2 weeks stuck at the same weight. The scale is finally moving again! I'm down 28lbs including pre op diet loss. I have to remind myself to eat because I forget. It's crazy.

I met with my surgeon for the first time post op yesterday and have lost 28% of my excess weight. I am very happy about that.

ive been feeling a lot of head hunger over the past 2 weeks, wanting lollies and cake. It’s been tough but so far I’m winning the battle.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
