I think they'll be MORE than happy with 174 pounds in a year! Don't stress yourself to make that arbitrary goal.

yes - that seems like a lot to lose in one year. Did they possibly mean your ULTIMATE goal rather than your one-year goal? If the latter, that is pretty ambitious. I was 316 the morning of surgery and 190 at my one-year appt. My surgeon was ELATED....

Wow! So I hear ya. And understand!

I don't want to sound as if I'm dismissing your ultimate goal. Cuz I understand having a driving focus.

But as the others have said, "Wow and congrats!!!!"

174lbs in a year is PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!! Please take some time to embrace your accomplishment!!!!! At 384lbs down to 210lbs, the reality is you probably have quite a good amount of excess skin left?

Also you don't mention if you are female or male? What height? Have you had a DXA scan to see how much fat to lean body mass you have?

I can also assure you that your surgeon is gonna be super happy with your progress!!!!

And just because you are 12months, doesn't mean the party is over! :) I'm 21 months almost 22 months out and I can still lose. I'm at 131.2lbs this morning down from 287lbs recent high weight. The last 20lbs are the HARDEST to get off. I had to totally bear down, do IF, eat ridiculously lean and clean and not party in order to do it and it still took as long as it took to lose the first part!

Continue to work your plan. Take the stress off yourself. You body has its own timeline. It won't be rushed. But you do your part every day with building new relationships with food, eating right, getting your fluids, your vits, and exercising and you will get there!!!

Yes my surgeon is super excited because I have lost at every appointment and never missed a goal he set I'm the kind of person to strive and make my goals but this one is difficult I'm 5 7' and yes I have excessive skin I think I'm struggling with exercise again was gun hold but now slacking and wanting sweets u don't eat a lot of it I'm guessing that's why the problem is I feel dehydrated plus been having stomach problems still throwing up on occasion stomach cramps.and I am a female I go go labs tomorrow

Dump the sweets hon. Every time you crave one, make yourself eat 1oz of Protein lean, dry, dull, boring, or a hardboiled egg. It will help you get back to the point that you aren't loading on sweets. You can also drop 4-6lbs in about 4 days by going to 20g carbs per day.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
