I was sleeved on june 4th 2018. I have not reached 100lbs milestone yet. I am feeling low and unmotivated as if the surgery was of no use to me. I was 267lbs pre-op . Currently i am 205lbs. Everyone is talking about loosing this much and that much. I feel as if i am the only one with such stalls and unsuccessful story.

I want to loose at least 40 to 50lbs more.

I am not happy about the fact that sometimes i can eat more and sometimes just lil. I don't know if it's right or not.

Probably everyone was right you loose the most in first 6 month and than its difficult. For me it was first 3 months and thats it.

I am not sure how to proceed what to do. I am just getting depressed.

I worried that I wasn't losing as quickly as I should in the first few months because everyone seems to have their biggest losses in the first 3-6 months and now suddenly it's starting to fall off. I guess something just triggers it or you hit that sweet spot of just the right amount of calories and exercise. Apparently my sweet spot is around 600 calories. But you're healthier now, right? That's a blessing!

Welcome to the site. Congrats on all your weight lost!

Comparing stats can bring you down and make you a bit crazy. Stop doing it. Some of us lose slow. It's that fact you are losing weight, not the speed..

As @GreenTealael suggested. The weight loss challenge is great for support and motivation to stay on track.

Weight loss surgery is not the easy way out. When the honeymoon phase of easy weight loss is over, you realize that this is work. With he sleeve you will feel less restriction over time. This is normal. You can/will still lose weight.

Time to get back on track. WLS basics - Weigh and log food, hydrate and activity/exercise.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
