83 lbs is GREAT!

It sounds like you and I are on similar paths. I'm at 11 months and have lost 78 lbs and I have about 40 left to lose. I contented myself with losing very slowly. Could I have been more faithful to the bariatric diet? Yes. But I'm happy and I feel great and to me, that's all that matters.

Thank you for that perspective [emoji173]

I just had my one year post op anniversary. I have lost 83lbs and still need to lose 30 to 40lbs to hit my goal. I feel like I could have done better and I'm comparing myself and I shouldn't but it's so hard not to.

If your friend said that they'd lost 83# in the last year, you'd be bragging all over them! Be as kind to yourself as you would to them. You've done great!

Congrats on the great weight loss!!! I hear you regarding comparisons -- I know a couple of people at work who have had the gastric sleeve done and I find myself comparing and remembering seeing their weight loss was so obvious -- I've lost 80 lbs (surgery was last August) and feel I've been at a stand-still for months. Ugh. Going back to old eating habits which is scaring me to death.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      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
