7 1/2 months post surgery. Didn’t think I could do this!



Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I don’t know if anyone needs this today so I’m posting it in case anyone finds it helpful!

I had Gastric sleeve on 7/26/18 . I weighed 276lbs.
Post surgery the first six weeks I dropped 35lbs really fast.

Things slowed down a little after that because I kept expecting the rate to stay the same. I have hit plateaus and taught myself not to be a slave to the scale. I weigh myself once a week and after a plateau I waited 2 weeks.

I also work out, but started slowly. I was walking on a treadmill at an incline for the first few weeks. Then I got bored and started to alternate between using an app with all types of workouts and mixing it with the couch to 5K app. In October a long time friend talked me into signing up for a 5K (even though I hate running)!

Today I am 7 and a half months post surgery . I am down 90lbs and completed my first 5K! If I can do it... Anyone can!

ALRIGHT!! Way to go. I am almost 3 months and have lost 55 pounds. I am walking on the treadmill and through the house. I use a fitbit and keep count of my steps. The most I have gotten so far is 21,000 steps and keep trying to up that every week. Hope you are feeling good about your success. I sure am.
