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...

      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.
