Hi everyone.

Before baby I got down to 175 but I now weigh a whopping 216lbs! I am devastated. I can’t get the weight off. I literally feel like with pregnancy I lost all restriction whatsoever. I can eat a lot. Like... a lot and with breastfeeding I’m always hungry!

I am speed walking 4 miles almost everyday and I’m eating relatively healthy. It’s a little difficult with baby to cook all means so I find myself “grabbing and going” more than I’d like, but I try to always make health conscious choices ....

Please tell me there is something I can do to shrink my stomach back so I can get this baby weight off.

The sleeve is likely intact and you are not minding the 'rules'. Like dense Protein first, then veg...no drinking liquids for 30 minutes.

You will have to keep your Fluid and nutrition adequate while breastfeeding - don't mess that up by severe calorie restriction. Go back to strict 6 small meals a day of nutritious food. Log everything like right after surgery. Just before feeding the baby, get some deli meat for yourself as a lettuce wrap...etc.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
