160 is my "Red Line" weight. When I reach that I know it's time to re double my efforts. I weigh my self every Friday between 4Pm and 8PM. Don't know if the times make a difference but it's just my routine.


Best time for your “true” weight is first thing in the am, pee, get butt ass naked and weigh. I see the doctor scale and say LIAR!

I never weigh myself anymore. Only my doctor weigh-ins and I ask them not to tell me the number. The "number" makes me crazy. I focus on maintaining good eating habits, exercise and if my clothes start to feel too tight I know that I've had too many carbs and cut back.

For me it has freed me from the obsession with food and hating myself over a number. Whatever that number is today -- it is no where near where it was 6 years ago. I just remember that.

I had a 40 lb weight gain over 8 years. 10 years post sleeve. Life happens. too many personal losses and changes....

Back in control now. Lost 37 pounds in the past year. Back to basics. Protein, veggies, fruit , sprinkling of carbs, healthy oils and fats and a daily treat.

Also back to the scale twice daily. Morning and Evening. Evening also lets me know if I have had enough Water. I dehydrate too easily. And not good with my fluids...

I will never be "normal" weight or BMI - but am back to my lowest BMI, and almost lowest sustained weight.

6 yrs post VSG and weigh daily. I am still on my journey! I have a health issue so there is phenomenal incentive to remain on track. Had regain about 2 yrs post op, got my act together and lost all of my regain and then some.

I'm just about three years post-op. If I'm not weighing myself daily then I'm in trouble. I've had regain, but lost about 7kg/15 lbs in the last two months.
