Hiya Penelope, love your name! Welcome to Bariatric Pal, we 💘 love new people, if you have Any questions please ask. I'm from from the other side of the Weight loss family, I had an RNY bypass on September 5th, but I have oodles of Sleeve friends on here so know a lot about that process as well. And we would love to help you along on your journey. As an example , a while back I was having a problem, sure I was singled out to have it and there was no hope for me Shared it on here, 4 people had encountered the same thing and had a easy way to solve it. I'm an inch taller, started out at 355 and am down to 293 , didn't think I would get under 300 but I did it! And I give credit to my surgery, because I couldn't drop my weight by any simple diet, and I have tested a mind-boggling amount of them in my time.7 weeks after surgery, I can see differences in my body, my waist, my legs, my rump and even my belly. And I want this to continue, and I believe with this new tool it will! Join me on this journey, things are always happier with friends!😛🌈😛

      Have decided on the Lap Band.  Excited, tomorrow 7/24 I have my consultation with my surgeon!  Hoping he will approve me.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much

      3. GreenTealael
