I hit the hundred land goal and now none of my clothes have the "X" in them or a 2... in them. Prayers for all of you out there facing the challenges that face us in this time of stress. My son just lost his job, remember nothing is solved with comfort food and comfort eating. Hang in there and hang tough.

Wow! Congrats--you are doing great! And in an impressively short time, to boot.

Congrats! I'm looking forward to hitting onederland myself - I have about 11 pounds to go, so hopefully I'll hit it before the end of the month!

I'm also looking forward to purging my closets and shoes as time goes by. I did ages ago after my first surgery, but since I gained weight I had to buy clothes again 😞 so I'm looking forward to getting rid of them. I'll probably keep the stuff I really like and see if I can get them taken in so I can get a little more out of them.

Sandra congratulations on making it the 100’s! I’ve got about 20 pounds to go to get there. I haven’t seen that number at the beginning of my weight in way too long.

Also, sending positive vibes to you and your son. That sucks to hear about the job loss. We’re in uncertain times right now and it is very scary.

Congrats! Isn't it wonderful to be out of "X - land"? I'm finally there - my XL pants have serious baggy bottom, ha, ha. Time to try a large - love shopping at the Goodwill.

And good for you watching out for that stress-eating trigger - best of luck to your son. Due to the dramatic downturn in the market I've had to postpone much needed roof work on my home since I don't want to sell shares now. Luckily my contractor is fine with it - has other work but I imagine their business will be impacted by current events.

      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!!!

      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...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
