sleeved 9/6/19. I get lightheaded almost every time I get up. Other than that I am great. Does anyone else get lightheaded?

Yes. For me it's lack of fluids. Stand up slowly.

All the time. Sometimes, I think other people think I'm drunk.

it's pretty common. It's most likely orthostatic hypotension. Just get up more slowly...

I get lightheaded in my workouts (boxing) when I have to get down for sit-ups or floorwork and then get back up again.

I used to get lightheaded halfway through any workout. my PA said to eat some fruit or something like applesauce before the workout for some quick energy. It actually helped.

Yup. Lightheaded when I get up. I have low blood pressure and low pulse. Make sure you're not dehydrated, and you may want to check your blood pressure.

In my experience light headedness has usually been due to dehydration

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
