Great question, my response...

1. Remember why you had the surgery every day.

2. Stick to the plan

3. If you don't see the weight falling off, don’t sweat it because it will...soon

4. Be discipline and avoid an abundance of sugar and carbs.

5. Read labels if the card and sugar count is high push away from it. Again remember why you had the surgery it will help.

6. Remember, you can lose all the weight and get healthy and go right back to where you started. There are many people who have gained the weight back.

7. Remember, the surgery is just a tool, not a quick fix. You have to put in the work daily.

8. Drink your water!!!

I hope this helps and if you need to call me you are welcome yo do so. imageproxy.php?img=&key=3bbd8bc3022d1b1a

You will, my #1 success story is that I remember daily why my doctor choose this route and the words he spoke...without a large amount of weight off in a shorter period of tome my life expectancy was short. I remember those words always and if i choose to go back into my old ways and habits I can expect a shorter life expectancy. #notme!!

You got this, if you beed me just reach out you can call if you need to as well. I am here to support.

Gosh you look fantastic. My surgery is tomorrow (!), and I am dealing with my pre-surgery jitters and a bit of hungry, as well. Your words, attitude and PICTURES were what I needed tonight!

Thank you for sharing.

Good deal am glad it helped. The first month is not a joke and the modified diet is not easy. Things you liked before you may still like it but also may not. BUT, your desire for what does mot work for you may come back, it did for me. Call me if you need to talk through a tough period. I am here for you all. My number us 405-417-2538.

You got this!!!!

Thank you so much for this positive post thread! You are definitely an inspiration and I will do my best to follow your advice. I think the best thing of all will be to be in regular sized clothing again, and not have to go to the Plus Sized section, if the store even has one. I don't look at this as an easy fix, because I still have to put in the work to get there, but it will be the lightest I have been in 20 years and THAT is no joke! You look super great, by the way! Way to inspire others!

You are so welcome! I am here to support. I can remember early on saying to myself there is no way i will lose that much weight. It’s hard to image some days early in the process that the weight would cone off, but it does if your if only you stay true to yourself and stick to the journey.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
