Six months post-op+ : The Sophomores Thread



Recommended Posts

As @FluffyChix stated in the original thread:

Quote

Let's share all our sophomore experiences, our angst, our struggles, our suggestions--let's talk about life! Let's become friends! You can be on any kind of food plan, do any kind of exercise or not, be gay or straight, engage in cardio or not--you just have to be in the "tweener" stage post WLS.

Not a Newbie but not yet a Vet - Sophomores have different challenges and are coping with an awkward middle stage, so please only post if you've passed the six month post-surgery mark!

Thank you, @sideeye !

I did an "official" Jan 1 weigh-in this morning. Even though I backslid a bit over Christmas, my official total loss for 2018 is 114.2 pounds. Looking forward to hitting goal in 2019!

I am technically a second semester Freshman- 4 months, I granted myself Advanced Placement because I feel at times I ALMOST belong, but not quite yet.

Wooohooooo! Great thread!!!! TY @sideeye for starting a thread that will hopefully make sense to all the Sophomores, so they find a home here with us!! Wooot!!!

Sorry to be MIA. Swamped yesterday and through tonight! :( So not much time to play--just a "union-sanctioned coffee break" ;) to rest my feet/back from massive cooking efforts 2%er semi-homemade shenanigans for a party today at my sissie's house!

Will be back tomorrow to post like the ho you know I am! ha!

Ok WELCOME home @Orchids&Dragons (don't know why that won't tag--hmmm--are you REALLY here?)!!! We missed you and were slightly terrified you were gone! I had visions of you goin' postal and rippin someone a new a-hole...but then I had to laugh, cuz I could only see my bobblehead on top of your skinny minny little body! :D ;) *snort* You are too sweet to go postal on anyone!

I did an official weigh-in. I too am up. Too many holiday craptastic-filled meals and wine. But tomorrow the days of atonement begin and the march to victory resumes! I have 30 days to lose 25lbs. Can it be done? ;) ha! (Hint: Who am I? bahahahaha--I have 3 days to lose 25lbs before my surgery. I'm really askeered. Will I still be able to have it?)

Jan. 1, 2019 CW: 151.4lbs (up 1.4lbs over first goal, up about 3 over lowest wt); Waist: 29.5inches (no change)

So that one-night stand in Vegas is no longer going to be a one-night stand... After a flurry of holiday messaging, we're meeting up again in March. But I've just realized that the me in November and the me in March is going to probably look pretty damn different. He's not going to see me at all in between, and I'm sort of giggling at the thought that he's going to suddenly get a woman who is anywhere between 10 and 40 lbs lighter than the one he met before.

I'm not actually nervous about this*, and of course it's not going to do one damn thing to impact my WLS decisions, but - shapeshifting hookup!

*okay, I'm a little apprehensive about loose skin and the Vanishing Boobs Conundrum.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

        WTG that is awesome!

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
