18 months post VSG

~155 lbs, BMI 27

Reflux (GERD) increased in intensity but I'm working on it. Mystery of dumping continues- c'est la vie... Gave up a few foods for a while to see if it helps both. We'll see.

Not many other changes from the prior month. This looks like maintenance for me.

Reflux is not nice, but obesity can cause so many more serious conditions than that.

You look fan-bloody-tastic and I bet you feel great too (reflux notwithstanding!). 😃

You look amazing. You’re my inspiration. Thank you for giving a newbie hope. I’m pre-op going on month 3 of 6.... Oh and it’s my first time posting here. 3 more months to go feels like eternity to me.

I am happy, healthy and confident...but damn those last 25 pounds are not wanting to leave!!!!! I tried KETO...literally perfect for 8 weeks and only lost 6 pounds...stopped doing that! I guess I need to really buckle down for the last 25!

You are likely either in maintenance or a on long plateau, some call these set points.

These are HARD to break past.

My suggestion is check in with your team on how to get through to the other side

I was told LOTS of exercise... Not what anyone wants to hear... i know 😳

Then really buckle down, go back to clran basics etc...

but if you are satified where you are (and your team is also) do it at your own reasonable pace

Good Luck

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
