Okay so since today was my 90 day surgiversary I got on the scale mid-week.

BIG MISTAKE!!!

I’ve lost exactly zero ounces since Sunday. 😩😩😩

Anyway, I still plastered a fake smile on because it is time for progress pics.

Forgive the look, but it’s my day off and I’m about to head out for Pilates. Slept like crap last night because we had t-storms all night and the cats were freaking out.
Think I got about 3 hrs sleep all added together....

Anna.... I’ve seen you identify some trouble spots, address them, then go on to success.
Kudos for that because it’s a great step in the right direction. 

Thank you Sheri!!! I’m trying!

Hi Recidivist--my NUT gave out a bunch of Vitamin samples prior to surgery and I found that for me, the only ones I found doable were the soft chews. I take the black grape Bariatric Advantage Multivitamin soft chews (AVOID the orange-flavored ones--ick) and the Pineapple-flavored Iron plus C chews. They start off sweet and then have a sour ending...very strange, really, but they do NOT taste minerally at all. I also take Fiber gummies to manage constipation and I think of them as little treats (like Gummy bears). If I didn't enjoy the soft chews, I'd go for the Gummy versions. My NUT even said Flintstone Vitamins were OK for the multivitamin!

Gotta, I just this minute tried the Bariatric Advantage soft chews--one grape and one strawberry-watermelon. Wow, what a difference! I have dreaded chewing my vitamins every day, but these actually taste sort of good. Thanks so much for the suggestion. I'm switching immediately and never looking back!

So glad you found one you like! I meant to say that for the Iron + C vitamins, I take the Celebrate brand soft-chews in pineapple. I like those even better than the black grape multivitamin chews. If you are taking Calcium, I found that the lemon-flavored Bariatric Advantage ones taste pretty good.

Loving this Vitamin discussion.
Quite honestly I only take Vitamins on my days off anymore because they are so.....ugh!

I’m going to try these chewy ones and see if I can be a bit more compliant

I take the ProCare Vitamins, as I prefer to swallow them.

I also take calcium chews and probiotic chew by nature made. I got a bogo on them. They are ok, but open to suggestions of better ones. I paid 19.99 for both.

Thanks

Well after complaining about not losing any weight since the 5th, I got on the scale this morning and dropped 1.4 pounds. 🤷‍♀️
I mean, it’s still only 1.4 pounds in 5 days, but at least—so far— it’s not a dreaded stall

I prefer the grape chews to the strawberry-watermelon, but both are WAY better than those nausea-inducing chewables that I was taking before.

I saw my doctor yesterday and she is very pleased with my progress. However, I've still been stuck at 188 for more than a week. Now I know what you all are talking about.

scale moved for me today too! However it went up like four or 5 pounds! The batteries had fallen out and when I put them back in I don’t know if re-calibrated or if I gained that much weight in reality. I’m going to assume there’s something wrong with the scale because I barely ate yesterday and did nothing to change my habits. I did eat half of a BLT for lunch which kind of made me sick but then really nothing substantial for dinner.

Having a little bit of a rough morning here so hopefully it’s just a fluke with the scale. It’s my birthday so I’m going to get out of the negative headspace and try to enjoy my day!

PS - I think 1.4 pounds is a lot for that window of time. Way to go!!!!!!

You know it’s so funny I am still on auto pilot with my eating and so forth. When my husband asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday immediately I was like Ruth Chris. Then I realized... what’s the point? I think we’re still going to go out to dinner tomorrow night and I will just split with him!

It’s been a major adaptation for him too because he was like a wild animal with his plate when I first started asking him to split with me. You would’ve thought it was his last meal on earth. Now that we’ve been out to eat a few times he can tell it’s such a waste for me to order a whole meal for myself. So I think he is starting to release the death grip on his plate and just order a little larger portion and share.

      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.
