10/29 Sleeve, doing well over all, but like you have noticed the grazing habits sneaking back in. Working on getting that back under control.

It's amazing how it can sneak back in once you let it.

Since my surgery on Oct 28,2019

at Piedmont Newnan Hospital I have lost 37# but 70 # total of highest weight in July....Dr, Morris in Newnan was my Doctor...He and his staff are wonderful. I feel like a totally different person an look so different....Not using walker or cane anymore...PTL...God is good. I took a bath in shower in my tub this morning for first time in 4 years....I have been using a regular shower because I could not lift my leg up high enough to clear the tub..I was in the tub before I realized that I had gotten in there with no problems...felt sooooo good... I have been off BP medicine since 3 days post surgery. Have more energy and loving life again.

I Live in Newnan too!! I had my surgery the day after you on the 29th but at piedmont Atlanta. I am so glad you are able to finally do things again that you couldn’t before. I am in the process of rebuilding my wardrobe, I have lost 64lbs. It feels so strange to be buying smalls and mediums. I have 40 more pounds to go. :)

I wish I had better news. I had sleeve surgery October 6. Shortly thereafter I developed a severe case of meraglia paresthetica, and they put me on all kinds steroids and nerve pain medicine. It completely STOPPED my weight loss for months, and brought on hunger with a vengeance. I have only lost 53 pounds, which has been disheartening. However, it is still 53 pounds gone. Have another 50 to go. ( I am also a revision patient so that can also account for a slower loss. ) My restriction is still there, but like most of us, I have to be careful and resist the urge to "graze". I take one day at a time and hope for the best. My nerve condition will be lifelong but fortunately not nearly as severe and I decided to stop the meds and manage it naturally. . It is wonderful to read how everyone is doing. Congrats to all on your successes.

Hello, checking in. I had my surgery on 10/01/2019. As of today I’m down 73 points. I know it’s slower than most but I’m okay with that. Truth is I’ve allowed my self some carbs and sugar and I need to be better. Still feeling good and labs are good. Wishing everyone the best!!

Hi. I hope all my October 2019 surgery buddies (and everyone else) are doing well in these trying times.

My surgery was on Oct. 24, '19 and I'm doing pretty well. I struggle with sloth :) I tend to not get moving daily now. Just like the old days before the surgery. I use the excuse of the gym being closed, but I don't walk like I should either.

But I'm still way more active than I was before the weight loss, it's much easier to move now.

How is everyone else managing their exercise/non-exercise habits?
