Walk whenever you can, rest when your body tells you to, sip sip sip your Water and protien shakes. Stick to the plan and enjoy the new you !

Did you really lose 121 pounds in 7weeks? I started at 285 and thought I was good losing 40 pounds...feeling like a failure now ☹️

40lbs is excellent no reason to feel like a failure at all. The poster may have lost a lot of weight before surgery.

I am almost 7 weeks and have only lost 17 pounds since surgery. I don't think it's humanly possible to lose 121 pounds in 7 weeks!

Wait. Where does it say that I lost that much. Those may be stats from when I had my lap band years ago. I’ve since had it removed. I’ve lost 30.

Just looking at the stats on the side under yr profile, I had a bit of a shock and wasn’t sure how you did that 😂😂😂 I’m going corona-crazy! Sorry, I wasn’t trying to be a smartass, just wanted to know if it was real and if so how....

It’s okay! I can’t figure out how to take that off. Maybe you could help me!

        What state are you in????

      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!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
