Congrats!! I love the feeling of fresh new, (and a new size!) clothes!

Where are you shopping? Old navy Rockstar jeggings are a nice high waisted skinny leg option, but I also really love Democracy Jeans... they are high waisted and great for shaping. I buy them at Nordstrom Rack or Amazon...

Girl you are killing it! So proud! Aren't pictures great?! Otherwise our inner critic gets the best of us. Keep it up!

Alright, let’s chat about real life. I struggled with drinking my calories but have gotten it pulled back a lot. However, I’ve substituted those calories with slider foods. So, I’m taking action and going back to counseling and I think I really need to up my Water intake. So, if you are struggling, like me, think about this honeymoon period and making the most of it. I know I want to do the best I can. I’m excited that I pulled out slacks today! Size 20 slacks and size 16 blouses. Some xl blouses because I’m thinner up top. This is really exciting but I know I could use a few more pounds to fit into some of the awesome clothes that I have. Wish me luck guys. It isn’t all sunshine and roses and everyone’s journey is different but I’m working through it all.

Hi I haven't been here on a while I just have a question for everyone is it just me or what I feel I'm losing really slow I've only lost 45lbs since surgery 10 26 I feel like I should be at least between 50 to 60 by now. I haven't been eating anything crazy maybe twice a week I've had carbs but it isn't much. My Dr told me not to worry but now I'm worrying wondering am I really gonna lose any more. I thought I would have lost more before I would have to do my part of the surgery but apparently not smh. Needing encouragement about now😞

Hi Yvonne 47,

I'd say you are in the average ballpark. I looked at my fitness pal app to see where I was at your time mark. I was at 53 lbs lost. However, I was at 298 a week after surgery. It's possible that you have less weight to lose than I did. Stay on track, you've got this!

What was your starting weight?
My surgery weight was 262 and i lost 54 pounds in the first 5 months after surgery. I think you’re doing just fine! I had the same concerns, but it’s just a more gradual process than we expect because it’s such a drastic change. Unfortunately, the weight doesn’t just fall off like we hope it will. Keep your head up! I’ve lost over a hundred pounds in the past 10 months and I haven’t done much more than eat a lot less. This winter has been rough and I haven’t been exercising. So I feel like my weight loss has been due primarily to the surgery alone.
