Thanks! I’m definitely slowing down. I’m sure a stall is in my future, but so far I’m pleased! Keep pushing through and I’m sure you will break your stall soon. It’s definitely a mental struggle, like you said. You will prevail!

Hi Guys,

Just stumbled across this bulletin board, great to see others sharing their experiences and stories so here is mine :)

Averaging around 130kg for the past 10 years my battles with overeating have caused everything from Type 2 Diabetes to high blood pressure and everything in between. It wasn't about me eating bad food, it was the over indulgence of the food itself. After attempting every diet known to the human race a decision was made to have the sleeve surgery done.

The Surgery was performed by Dr KunzinKovas @ St George Private Hospital in Kogarah NSW, Australia in Early March 2019. The first 3 weeks were in and out of the hospital for various circumstances. I won't lie it was hell for the first month. 16 Weeks after the surgery I weigh in a 95Kg from 120Kg just before Surgery, it has been the best decision of my life.

My Blood sugar levels are now before 5.5, no more high blood pressure, quit smoking 4 months ago. I feel a million dollars and now have the advantage of teaching my body how to eat again without the drug of indulgence in me.

I relate Shaye! You are making great progress! For me, the pounds were dropping off so fast the first month I was hoping I would maintain that but now it's slow and steady. I've had a few stalls and my weight is always more than what I get at home when I go in. I was so busy checking my weight daily to try to get down to my goal weight for surgery it has been hard to get out of that mindset. I am trying to focus on the inches I am losing, the new energy I have and checking my weight once a week. Listen to your new stomach and the pounds will keep coming off.

Hey you guys!!! I was sleeved March 25 by Dr. Foreman in Huntsville (Shay!!). My scale ALWAYS reads 5lbs less than my surgeon's office and 3lbs less than my general practitioner, so when I log I always add the 5lb so I won't be disappointed at follow ups!! LOL

My progress has been SLOW but steady............ well.............. steady-ish. I have noticed that my body changes one week and I lose on the scale the next week.... it's a weird pattern, but I'll take it :)

Hi all!! I was revised from VSG to RNY for severe GERD on 3/18. My pre-op diet weight was 251 and today it is 216.6. Weight loss has slowed and I’ve had a few stalls. Shark week sucks because I gain despite changing nothing. Slow and steady is better for my body but my mind doesn’t agree and that is a daily struggle. How are all the other VSG to RNY revisions doing?

Girl same. Mine was Mar 11 SW 261 CW 217 GW 150 ---- so super close to you. I feel like I'm doing a little worse actually. But yes... I feel like it's sooooo slowwwww and my next follow up is on Monday...and I always weigh more on their scales. It's so depressing. I've hit another stall just now...which sucks because I was stuck at 225 forever...then dropped to this about 2 weeks ago... and now...nothing.

Been stalled for 3 weeks now at 228. HW 270 SW 248. I went back to the basics and hope that this will pass soon and I will start dropping lbs again. The inches are coming off in the meanwhile so that makes me happy.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
