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.

Im new here and my Surgery was March 6th 2019, Sw was 261, Cw is 216 Gw is 150, I feel like im behind and im scared all the time, I go back to the doctor and dietician in June, and their scales always weigh more, Am I the only one that weighs more at the doctors office than at home?

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.

Just got through the grandmother of all stalls and all it took was a cold virus to get me losing again. I’ve lost an entire dress size so I’m digging in to the back of my closet to reacquaint myself with old clothes. I’m touring Hoi An, Vietnam this weekend and trying very hard not to go into the fabric shops to have new clothes made. I’ve still got more weight to lose and a bespoke closet at the end of my assignment is just the incentive I need to stay motivated.

What is a NOLA gal like you doing in Viet Jam? Is it business or a pleasure trip? Don't know if I could go there or not, I'm sure it is TRULY beautiful in 2019. ME-----
I remember the Viet Nam War,too strongly, just my hangup, I probably wouldn't visit the EUROPEAN concentration camps either, I avoid locations of human suffering.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
