And I didn't see ME on the list but I'm still out here too @ YLime, 10 months and 1 week past surgery, and I had be so special I nearly stink. Had A Stomal Stricture, multiple ulcers in my pouch and in Jejunem, the second part of the small intestine,where the pouch empties into. Although there is not the acid- producing critter it once was, but just enough acid to chew on my jejunm, try chomping until I x a n will8=

Oops must have lost my Train of Thought or I fell asleep. The acid was trying to chomp a hole in my jejunem, see it doesn't have the mucus,protection of your stomach( although mine was no great shakes. That's why I came into WLS with Hector, my iddy bitty Gastric Ulcer). And your Duodenum has neutralizing things coming in like bile and Pancreatic secretions to protect things, bypassers come back in much more Downstream, something we have given up to have higher weight loss. As the Old Carnival Barker said "YOU PAY YOUR MONEY, YOU TAJE YOUR CHOICE!" And for ME I guess the choices back- fired -- Oh Well -IT is as IT is and I will make it through it all. Just still stuck on purees, broths, Soups, Protein Shakes and Half the Vitamins and Minerals in the Western World! But I am Strong, Red-headed, I Don't and Won't Give Up, I'll be in Victory Lane eventually!

Hello friends! Aug 18th will be one year since I was sleeved. The first couple weeks were really tough but as the weight has come off I'm feeling so much better. I actually intentionally look at myself in the mirror now. HW was probably 285. Started the liver shrinking diet at 265. Surgery at 250. CW 163. Ideally I'd like to get to 155 but honestly I'm pretty satisfied with where I am right now. I still have so much to work on though. I have not incorporated any exercise! I know, I know, please don't chastise me. I am well aware of the importance of exercise, including the need to build muscle. Another area that I've recently started strugglimg with is indulging in junk food, fighting with old habits of emotional eating. It's frustrating how my stomach has such a hard time with meats but it has no issues with the unhealthy stuff. I still log everything I eat, every day. So I'm not being sneaky about it. Anyway, I'm excited that I've come so far but a little disappointed that I still have so much more to work on. I also have to manage my bipolar disorder which gets in the way at times. Continued success to all of us! pixlr_20190712232632509.jpeg

I just past my 1 year "surgerversury" and doing great. Down 110lbs and holding fast. Been in a stall for five months but feeling spectacular. I would still like to lose another 30 lbs, but if it takes me another year or two I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

Hi Everyone! It has been a while. I'm now about 88 lbs down, but have been stuck losing and gaining the same 5 pounds since January. A bit frustrated, but that's where I am with it.

This year has been incredible. My confidence has grown, as has my energy level. I still have about 50 lbs to go before I reach my ideal weight. I don't know if that's plausible at this point, but I'm hopeful.

In an effort to boost my loss, I've gone back to very low carb, high Protein and have increased my activity a HUGE amount. Hopefully it pays off.

One year today! I made it to my goal. It felt slow at times but I don’t take a single pound for granted. I hope everyone is doing well and feels good.

Here is my chart. Edited to add: I joined a gym in April and it shows on the graph.

      Still stalled. Hating every week of it. 
      I'm in that "I must be doing something wrong, I won't lose any more weight" mode of thinking.
      Hating everything about myself dull drums. If it wasn't for the stress of work, i'd probably be more upset.

      Yesterday I discovered stretchy pants. It was the first time that I walked into a normal store and dared to try on clothes in over many many years. Scary, but I found some guy chinos that I liked. I was even able to wear women's sizes even though the legs were wayyyyy too short.

      Down 31 pounds in my first month! OK, so a month and two days, but I'm counting it anyway. 😆
      At this point, I'm doing well overall. According to surgeons' instructions, I'm on soft foods for another week-ish. I'm so ready for solids - the soft foods can be such "sliders" and I have to be extra, extra careful.
      For example, my refried beans + dollop of plain Greek yogurt + tomatillo salsa verde became a problem. I never felt satisfied and felt I could have easily had a much bigger serving. Then, far worse was when I made homemade hummus - holy cow it is SO GOOD, but again - felt like I could have downed a quart, no problem. 😂
      It's (for me at least) extremely challenging to "eat mindfully" when the food is that soft. I mean for crying out loud, there's nothing to "chew on"! 😂
      So, couple of days ago - I committed to no more refried beans and no more hummus. Farewell my delicious friends. Going to focus on chicken and tuna and eggs for the time being (ground up til mushy, of course). 
      I'm hoping that once I get the go-ahead to introduce solids I will be able to feel the restriction. Because honestly? I'm only a month in, and I feel NO restriction. It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. Willpower was never my problem. But I'm so looking forward to that feeling I hear a lot on here when people say "Oh I ate half an egg and was SO STUFFED." This has....not been my experience. 😕
      Really hoping that's because my foods are so mushy/soft right now. We shall see. 
      Regardless, I'm 100 percent committed. I hear over and over how this tool is the most powerful for about a year, maybe/possibly a wee bit more. I will not sabotage that for the world. 
      So - doing my happy dance at 31 pounds down - I'm in a "weight decade" I haven't seen in a very long time. And it only gets better from here!

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊
