13 months post op. Success !!!



Recommended Posts

13 months post op. This saved my life. Everyone asks me if I would do it again. And I would !! It's hard. It's not a magic pill. You have to be ready for a life change. Not just something that will shrink your stomach so you can't eat as much. It's only a tool. As long as you go into it like that, I believe you will be successful. I am 170 lbs down in 13 months and it is life changing.

nothing is easy - but working hard - rewards are so worth it

Hi there. I have really gotten used to Portion Control for sure !!! I stick to Protein first and don’t drink anything within 45 minutes before or after eating ... NEVER. I eat my protein first then try to take a couple of bites of the other stuff. I have learned that I have to stop eating and give myself about 5-10 minutes to determine if I am full or not. For some reason , my brain doesn’t register it with the food in front of me and while I’m eating. .. weird. So I rely on myself to stop and wait and decide if I can’t take a few more bites. Sometimes , I will get up and walk around or walk outside or to the bathroom or something like that so I don’t just sit there on front of the plate of food. Why ??? Because it’s STILL a struggle. That’s what I want people to know ..... it’s not magic. Your hunger for food doesn’t go away. Your desire to taste good food doesn’t go away. It’s still there. You just have to learn to deal with it. I wake up every day and day “ ok, we got this “ ..... truly is a change of life and how you have to view food. It’s fuel not comfort.

Now don’t get me wrong ... I don’t want to scare anyone and make anyone think that I haven’t indulged. I absolutely do have a couple of bites of ice cream once a week. Or I eat a cookie once a week. Or I take a couple of bites of desert every now and then when I’m out dining. But it’s a treat and it’s only usually a bite or two at the most just to satisfy me and help me not feel deprived.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      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...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
