I had about 2 tbsp of anything I wanted and a slice of turkey. Too full for dessert. Ended up losing a pound over night and two more the following weekend. Now sitting 3 pounds from my end of year goal to get below 200. I just might do this! We are headed to Universal Orlando for New Years and the prospect of going on rides without being self conscious about being over #200 is pretty exciting!!!


You’ll love it! We just got back from Disney.

SUPER slow weight loss. Partially my fault. Not walking/hiking like i was. 3 days of bad decisions around Thanksgiving..not going to justify it. Gained 5 lbs...ankles swelled like crazy. Lost 4 within 48 hrs but still up a pound. Even in all the other past 27 days of eating 'clean' and within macros..only lost 1 lb.

hair falling out like crazy. Husband gripes when I mention getting hair piece or something before cruise.

Ate TWO darn grilled chicken nugget from Chik Filet too fast 2 days ago (only Protein for that day) Don't have much restriction feeling at all anymore but I keep my meal sizes fairly consistent. Didn't hit restriction this time either but when I got home was hit with huge WAVE of nausea (ate them too fast??).

Was in bathroom FOREVER. After 4+ hrs of vomiting/floaties/foamies/dry heaving, I burst so many tiny vessels in my face I looked like i had double case of chicken pox on forehead & 1/2 way down face.. Tried phenegran - didn't stay down..I swear a little piece of pill came out my nose during one of the worst bouts. Couldn't even sip Water.

7+ hrs later I realized it was almost 11PM & I had early AM meetings. Went to ER out of desperation. ER couldn't stop it with IV phenegran either. Finally gave me another med. Stopped roughly 9 hrs after started. Checked for blockages..none found.

Am tired, my face still has red spots..hair coming out in droves & droves. I feel old & ugly today..uglier. Sorry I don't have more positive things to say. Am here..so guess that is something. I actually feel...rather apathetic..

That’s horrible, Karen. I’m so sorry! It sounds almost like food poisoning. But overall it looks like you’re still down a lot, so try not to be discouraged by the set-back. I suggest you try to see your nutritionist, and get back on track, but mostly, keep your chin up. You’ve got this.

Very happy to report that I've hit my 2019 milestone goal and dropped under 200 this weekend for the first time since my 20s. Next milestone is to get under 180 (my surgeon's goal for me) and out of the obese category! (Haven't seen that weight since my teens.)

I hope the rest of you are doing well. I know the holidays can be a challenge with food, so wishing everyone lots of luck! ❤️

Hi SophieMarie!

I think a bit of buyers remorse right after surgery is very common. The first week... heck the first two months!... are really hard. The pain is no fun and trying to eat and drink while recovering is horrid. I remember thinking to myself, often, "This is a breathtakingly permanent thing I just did, effectively mutilating myself forever."

And it is breathtaking. But it's also a gift you've given yourself, and over the next few months, you'll really begin to see it pay off. Once the pain is gone and you're on a more or less regular food diet you'll feel more normal again. And when the pounds start coming off you'll be very happy to have paid the price of a week or three of discomfort, I'm certain.

Hang in there!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
