Celebration time! Just got out of the 300's! Crazy! Started the process at 426, surgery at 400. Just weighed in at 296. (And by celebration I probably mean getting crazy and maybe hitting 1200 calories today) Hope all is going well with my fellow December Sleevers. Also, I've got a friend who is about to have the surgery in a couple of weeks so it has been great getting to pass on some info and help her.

I’m a Month shy of a Year and don’t even reach 700 cal a Day

Thanks everyone and btw, I average about 800 calories a day and burn an average of 400 at the gym not to mention whatever gets naturally burned just walking around and doing standard daily activities. Also, when I wemt out to eat the other night I didn't request a table like usual and sure enough my family was escorted to a booth, which has been a nightmare situation for me for the last several years, and I looked at it and thought there is no way I'm fitting in this but I'll go ahead and try to slide in. Low and behold I not only fit easily but I had about 3 or 4 inches to spare and could lean over and everything! This is all crazy!

Yes, that scale is evil for sure. I do take my measurements and have lost a lot in some areas and not so much in others. 4 pants sizes is incredible. Good for you. Are you buying new clothes yet? I haven't bought anything new because I have a whole closet full from the last time I was this size. I follow the Keto diet which was recommended from my surgeon but modified with more Protein. I do have some good recipes for that. But mind you Keto is high in fat so if you are doing a low fat diet it would probably not be for you.
Hi Louise! That freaking scale finally moved this weekend! I couldn't resist to step on it after a week n a half, -8lbs more gone[emoji847]I was like OKAAAAYIWILL take that. Keto, nahh I don't need more fats..I need to tone really badly so I said I was going to start lifting small dumbbells for my flabby duke Cheeks and arms. Now what am I supposed to do with this half flabby belly I DON'T KNOW LORDT[emoji848] A picture from a year pior to compare my progress. I'm trying[emoji21]inCollage_20190326_164530719.jpeg

I'm so glad you got that scale to move!!!! I ended up losing 1.3 for the week so I'll take that. I saw my nutritionist on Friday and I think I may stop doing the keto diet and just focus on meat and vegetables and see if that change helps things at all. You are looking fantastic! Thanks for following up. Have a great week!

I could use a good 12 step program. “Hello my name is Kathleen, and I am a scale-oholic.” It is pathetic. I’m so obsessed. I have been at a “stall” for almost 3 weeks. It’s almost discouraging. I was so excited to hit the -40 at exactly 3 months. My dr said to expect 30-50, so I was happy! Then... Haven’t lost since. And I am just getting over some horrible bug that lasted for over 2days that caused me to not keep anything down or in. And still no weight loss.
Of course it’ll come. It’s just so dern frustrating! I’m smiling though. Still excited about -40 cus I’m thinner than I’ve been in over 33 years!!!

Hi, I’ve never written on here before, but I’m hoping to find some inspiration and motivation from everyone. I have been kinda stuck recently and haven’t been eating very well:/ I’m so disappointed in myself, but I’m using this to keep going. What are y’all’s diets like 4 months out and how do y’all suggest I do this? My doctor never gave me a certain calorie restriction or real meal plan, and I do feel hungry.

It's been 4 months and 5 days. Starting weight was 377 pounds. Today I was 264 pounds.

I eat 800 Cal or less a day and have been on a hardcore next to zero carb diet since 2 weeks before my surgery.

The restriction is real, can't eat much more than 2.5 ounces.

All is well. Hope you all are kicking butt!

So funny but true! I'm a scale-a-holic too! And . . . I've been in a stall for 3 weeks also. From what I'm reading in the forums for us December sleevers, it must be a natural stall point because I've read at least 4 or 5 of us stalling around Week 16.

      Well, long time no see. 
      It's been a rough couple of weeks. I should have been expecting the other shoe to drop after having it so easy for the first three weeks post op. I was getting my water and protein easily, had no pain, nausea, or vomiting.
      But as soon as the soft foods really started in earnest I started having problems. Pain, foamies, slimeys, vomiting galore. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it. Something that I ate easily yesterday causes pain and vomiting after the first bite today. Sometimes it's my pills, other times they go down easy. I just don't get it. 
      I'm trying to stay positive. I know this is a season in my life, and things will eventually even out. I'm just so tired of being afraid to eat, not knowing what kind of response my body will have. I'm mostly hitting my protein target, thanks in large part to protein shakes (which I hate, but look at as medicine). I missed my water targets by a lot over the weekend, due mostly to feeling awful, which I know is a terrible cycle... throw up, don't feel like drinking anything, get dehydrated, get constipated, feel like crap, repeat. 
      The three-week stall is also still here. I thought I had busted through it, but I've been bouncing between 216-219 for the last two and a half weeks, which is a contributing factor to my mood and frustration level. And add in wee-lings who are going crazy with end of the school year insanity, friends with busy schedules who I haven't been able to see in weeks, and I'm an unhappy girl. 
      Things will turn around. I know they will. Just not feeling it at this moment.

        Hey @MrsGamgee, I've missed you :1007_hearts:, welcome back (of sorts)!

        Sorry to hear you are feeling blue. You've got the right thought processes to get through this phase, but yeah, it's still tough. Hang in there, though!

        Have you gone to see your surgeon or checked in with your PCP lately?

    • dmadms  »  ARMoma45

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.
