Unfortunately, it took a serious health scare (my heart stopped in ICU) and my mother and father in-law passing from cancer to take my heath seriously. I had the sleeve done June 2014. High weight 254 day of surgery 234. I’m maintaining in the 130’s.

There is no secret to bariatric weight loss. Follow your plan. Learn the basics. log in an app, hydrate, exercise/activity. If you gain call your team. Never be afraid to ask for help.

@Healthy_life2

hey bud - are you referring to recent heart prob? or talking about from earlier?

if answer is you just had the "issue" so very sorry. (or earlier too) very sad -

hope you are ok now? Improving?

too many OP take their health for granted. Don't go to PHP at all, or not enough. Since some

OP don't go to doc/normal check-ups, they don't know if they have developed diabetes/high blood pressure etc.😒

Unfortunately for various health probs that i've always had - i am able to be forewarned by the doc "if something is developing" (see my general doc too often

for checkups)

50+ years ago, as i turned into a teenager, my mom always "mentioned" i need to loose weight.

mom and i both referred to my appearance (vanity reasons) to loose weight.

It took many years to realize my health was getting worse, and worse! that's why i needed to,(not for my appearance only, but for my health -must loose the weight Kept yo yoing like OP,

finally one month before I turned 58 years old - i was sleeved. Now am 65 years YOUNG!!

i love proudly yelling that after weighing 235 lbs DOS - like you, i will fluctuate the 130ish range too.

7+ years PO - maintaining - still cute as a button🤣

your advise to newbies et al, is as usual great. reader beware/listen to @Healthy_life2 wise words!!

Love your pics - lookin' beautiful in your LBD (little black dress!) keep on keeping on. Keep responding, writing your posts. We all love to hear from you

finally - ALL of us must take a page from @Healthy_life2 book - watch your

body/ take care of yourself of yourselves - your life depends on it!!

Who loves you baby?? 😉

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
