TY! You must have read me on a "good day" when I've "taken my meds..." hahahaha (j/k--not that there's anything funny about being on mood-altering medication--just that I do "have my moments" of maybe..."too much truth". :( )

Great to be here! Let's get this board a hoppin'! :D (Cuz if the house is a rockin, don't bother knockin--just come on in!)

I was sleeved may 15th 2017. I was pretty active my first year post-op, but then life got busy with 2 new grand babies and traveling for work. I hit my goal weight about 8 months post op and I am usually within 10 lbs of my goal weight since then. I am currently about 12 pounds above where I want to be mostly because I am having a hard time adjusting to not being able to run. I had knee surgery 2 months ago and I am still having pain. I need to nip this now and cut back on calories until I can figure out where I need to be with less exercise.

Surgery is often a game changer Just needing it then recovery. Welcome back Other exercise possibilities?

Thank you for the welcome. I am mostly walking and using my elliptical a couple times a week. I was really hoping to get back to running, but my doctor doesn't think this is a good idea unless I am prepared to have a knee replacement sooner rather then later. I was pretty slow the first 6 weeks and have just really got back to purposefully walking the past 2 weeks.

So I just haven't done much to replace my running and I have just been stuck. I am now facing rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder and I need to pull myself together and stop feeling like my body is falling apart. There are many people facing worse in their lives and I have much to be thankful for.

I definitely don't want to let these injuries be the start of a slip back so the first thing I thought to do was get back here and read. The support is welcome and needed.

I know what to do. I need to keep carbs under 50g a day and eat Protein first. I need to get my calories under 1300 and get back into the habit of tracking and weighing myself daily. I got complacent when I was running because I could eat more carbs and still maintain a good blood sugar level and my weight stayed low without much effort. I don't want to go back to where I was 4 years ago so I am setting a goal of losing this extra 12 pounds over the next 2 months and then figuring out how to maintain at 150-155 with the level of exercise my body is comfortable with now.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
