Great post. BTW, you look AMAZEBALLS!!! Double BTW, thank you for putting yourself on the line in service to us, especially during these trying times!!!

Thanks Fluffy! My weight loss has been slow, but I feel GREAT!

As much as I'd like to take credit for those healthcare workers putting themselves on the line, I cannot. I am a nurse consultant who works from home. I haven't left my house in over a week! My DH deserves the credit. He's still out there working and braving the chaos in the stores for me.

Awwww! Thank him for me! But you are STILL putting yourself on the line. Cuz you are helping people via phone where they may need help even more than in person. And that need is only gonna grow the longer we are in lock down IMHO. ((hugs)) That's takes a ginormous toll on our own psyche. So big hug and thanks from me! MUAH!

I was telling everyone how good I was not drinking soda because of the carbination, then someone reminded me that red bull had carbination and i was adding it to vodka. I then put my soap box away.

I'll start by saying save me the bible thumping crap about soda!

While I don't know why you posted this, I LOLed at this. 😂

There is a lot on controversy about carbonation among surgeons, like maybe it will stretch out or pouch or not or if it will wreck your anastomosis over the years or not.

I don't know what to make out of this. Evil tongues claim that surgeons say "no carbonation" to scare patients away from regular soda forever and use the scare mongering tactic because us fatties can't for sure ever be trusted to follow the rule "no regular soda".

      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...

        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
