Starting Weight 234 (I only weigh myself once a week, on Thursdays so we'll go with last week's weigh in)

Goal: Lose 10 pounds (I have a larger goal of getting to 200 by the end of June so 10-12 pounds a month for the next three months is what I'm pushing myself towards)

Surgery: Sleeve on 2/7

1. I'm proud that I am taking an 8-week sketch comedy writing course that just started this weekend. I freelance outside of work for fun and a class holds me accountable for working on passion projects.

Starting weight 153

Goal: Get into the 140’s. I start my gym membership this week so I hope it helps. I seem to hit stubborn weights that take longer to shed. 154-153 turns out to be one of them!

Surgery date: 8/13/18 VSG

Surgery: VSG (just a little over 5 months post op, still losing...)

Starting weight: 146.4

Goals: Get to 135 lbs (which would mean a 100 lbs loss for me since October!) && increase strength training time/amount. Right now I do maybe 20-30 mins twice a week, I want to do more.

#1 Something I'm proud of today: I am getting so much better at remembering the steps in Zumba. I didn't feel as stupid as I normally do this morning at class.

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
