I have my 9-month apt. Wednesday this week after a week of vacation on Nantucket and a business trip to Las Vegas all with no scale. Fingers crossed for my weigh-in tomorrow.

And... I weighed in at 70 pounds down since I started this journey at my 9-month apt. Everything is going really well! I hope you all are feeling good, doing well, and having a good summer!

I can’t believe I’m now taking meds for cholesterol. I was so sure it would go down after losing weight.

I haven’t lost any weight in weeks. Is anyone else struggling past the 6 month mark? Did I just lose all I’m going to? I need to exercise more but I moved and had to put my elliptical in storage :-(


I thought it was just me. I haven't loss a single pound since April

I thought maybe it was just me. I've only lost 4 lbs in the last month. It has been a nightmare since hitting the 6 month mark the end of April. I need to get working out more but between work and my kids schedules I just haven't been able to get a routine down. I'm still 27 lbs from goal and feel like I am never going to get there. 🥺

I hear you guys! I gained 7 pounds after being put on a new medication but thankfully lost it after I was switched to something else. Other than that, the scale hasn’t budged. I need to find a way to exercise but with my elliptical in storage and no money to join a gym I am SOL.

I definitely slowed down. I also seem to gain, then lose. So last week I was up 2#, this week down 4 (so average 1# loss over 2 weeks). But, my doc told me to expect it to slow at 6 months and taper to 0 at 12-18. I'm still about 20# into the overweight category, but at least not obese anymore. And I've lost 80%+ of my excess weight. My goal is to lose enough weight so that if I do end up gaining the 10-20% that some folks do, I'll still be solidly in the overweight and not obese category.

Hey guys! Hope all is well with everyone. Just an update, after having gallbladder removed I feel SOOOOOO much better. I've noticed that I am able to eat pretty much everything (just in smaller quantities). The diet has started to struggle a bit when it comes to making the best choices. But at least I realize it and can correct it ASAP. In June I hit the -100 lbs mark and broke down in happy tears in the locker room at the gym. It has been very hard not to compare myself with others who have had the same surgery. But we really are very different and will lose/gain at different rates. Best of luck to everyone! Remember not to be so hard on yourself. You did this because you love yourself and want better health for yourself.

Good morning y’all...just came to thank you all for the support and also to share my progress so far.
Almost 9 months pp and down from a size 18/20 to a size 8/10! I am in Brazil because my mother had some serious medical issues and don’t have a scale around but last time I weighed I was 90 lbs down and have 28 more to go to reach my goal.
I am beyond happy!
Hope you’re all doing great!
