Six months post-op+ : The Sophomores Thread



Recommended Posts

Yeah you're right, rather a "Come here, look what I'm packing!" that expression , I was tempted to say " Oh, did you get another piece of luggage?" Inside the Bad Evil ME is thinking "Oh a train case, scarcely qualifies as a Carry-On!"

I was thinking about what @GreenTealael posted in another thread about how we aren't the same people as before we lost weight because I'm having an unusual morning.

Before surgery, I had severe chronic back pain and often spent one or both weekend days resting in bed watching TV or on FB because I was tired, my back hurt, and the drugs I was taking for my back made me tired. I'm off the pills now, and my back pain is quite mild.

Today I got up, had breakfast, and then my husband went back to bed. I cleaned out our disgusting screened-in porch, removing piles of leaves and dirt. Then I took all my makeup and other bathroom items off the crusty mirrored shelves, Windexed the shelves, and managed to throw some stuff out. Then I went on my treadmill for 20 minutes. I justed changed the sheets and started laundry, and I'm heading out to wash my car in the driveway instead of a carwash. In short, who am I?

This surgery and corresponding lifestyle have made my life so much better, and I'm so grateful I had it!

That is so fantastic! I have felt like that a few times, but then some type of complication comes along and b!tch-slaps me back to reality. I hope to get to where you are soon!

I can’t wait to watch that movie!

9 months post op next week and I’ve been eating pescatarian since May 1st. At this point I meal prep for 5 or so days out of the week. Honestly eating has become less stressful so I’m happy. I’m 25lbs away from goal and training for 3 races this fall: two half marathons and a full marathon. Nailing my nutrition now is a huge priority for me. People ask me about how my surgeon feels about my progress and honestly I don’t know, I’ll find out next week lol.

I'm officially a sophomore, 6 months to the day that I had the sleeve done. Been stuck in stalls for the past two months. Just can't seem to move that scale. But I'm hanging in there, getting my Water, exercising, eating 800 calories, focusing on Protein. Doing all the right things, just waiting for results. Hoping I'm not "done" and already at maintenance. It's too soon! Hoping it's just a stall. I've got 50 more pounds I want to lose. Discouraged but hopeful at the same time.

You are going to make it there! And when you do, this stinky stall will barely be a memory!😛
