Because of this tendency, my doctor told me to do these forevcer: eat a maximum of 800-1,000 kcal/day, no more than 1 c. food/meal and continue to exercise. I'm rarely hungry and 800 kcal/day satisfies me. It's hard to believe that I haven't lost more weight, but maybe it'll still happen.

Are you still looking to lose more weight?

I had my first carbonated beverage since surgery yesterday. I’d like to report that a half a bottle of sparkling Water didn’t kill me.

WOW. You refrained for over 15 months?! To me, that is impressive. Of course this is coming from someone who goes through a case (6 X 1L) of Perrier (or similar) in a week.

Lol, I remember last month tentatively sipping on a mimosa before a morning football game and wondering how bad it was gonna hurt.

You guys are too kind. I was talking to my hubby last night about a reduction. at my highest, i was a 44G/H... Now im a 34 G/H. lost a little in the boobs but not a lot. I was thinking i could use a Brazilian butt Lift..... hehe My favorite part of the loss.... is how my back looks. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten.... 30lbs makes a difference.

But you both made my day.

Looking🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

I started at a 44G/H too but now I'm a 36 C 😭 and not the *good* kind

the entire time i had my band i never gave up soda. I didn't drink much of it... like a 20oz would last days. I couldn't give up the Dew... it was my addiction.

In June, i just stopped.... don't know why. This was even before i got sleeved. It's been going on 5 months. Never thought i would be able to give up the Dew.... Winning!!!!

Hope all of you had a fantastic thanksgiving,

I’m on the high end of my bounce range and back eating in weight loss mode. Indulgence taste great but my body feels sluggish. I prefer the way I feel when I eat healthy.

same here - I've gained 2 lbs since yesterday - and another 2 lbs since the day before that (so 4 lbs altogether), and I'm feeling like a slug. I know most of this is Water and will be gone in a couple of days, but....UGH. I feel like crap. I'll be eating lightly, exercising, and increasing the fluids for the next few days!!! I, too, much prefer the way I feel when I eat healthy.

@Healthy_life2 & @catwoman7...but did we at least enjoy our Thanksgivings? ❤️

Which brings up a question. So both of you are pretty far out and doing the maintenance thing like pros. Do you experience stress/guilt/anxiety at all after indulge days like these? Or are they now just occupational hazards?

I’m curious about that too. I’m 16 mos out. Keep hearing from diff people about sleevers gaining once they hit the 3-5 year mark. That is in the back of my head. I know it’s not the case for everyone. I hit my goal and have kept it. I have a wiggle room between 130-140. I stay around 132-133. Today I was up to 135 post turkey day😬
I feel like I will maintain and be successful it just is a little devil on my shoulder of the people who say gaining is common after 3-5 years

Ok, girls, I can relate! @Healthy_life2 & @catwoman7 I'm 133.8lbs this morning. Gah!

True story. At 4:30am I was 135.6lbs. Cranked myself out, took some cold medicine and went back to sleep. Woke up pooped. Got nekkid. Weighed. Weighed 135lbs. Super cranked out. Drank some Water. Did a forced walk for 1 hour. Was contemplating how BADLY I did NOT want to go back into WLM. But 135lbs is the TOP of my window and is totally unacceptable. So I knew that was my future today and this week. Sigh. Then went and pooped AGAIN! LOL. Weighed. And I'm now 133.8lbs. True Story.

I an now in the middle of my window rather than the top (using musician's math to round down rather than up. LOL). But I will still be in WLM cuz dayum. I'm already cranky. So why not? But I will tell you @ms.sss, the relief I feel at being 133.8lbs rather than 135lbs is tangible! And cray. Mostly cray.

I know as everyone already said, it's mostly water and it will come back off with a day or two of healthy eating. But it's ridiculous how easy it is to get to the top of your weight window without even trying!!! Gah! OK, rant over.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
