So...I've had great progress so far. starting weight 308,surgery weight 288, current weight 219. Plenty of NSVs as well.

Now for the downsides: in a bit of a food funk right now. It's a little hard watching my family eat things that i can't (well, really, i can probably eat some, but it would not have good results). I am deathly afraid of carbs, because that has been my downfall in the past.

Don't get me wrong: i don't regret the surgery at all! Just need some encouragement sometimes....

And I'm currently scheduled for an ultrasound on Thursday, because I've been having pain in my upper right abdomen half an hour after eating. I know what that probably means, but hoping for the best.

I'm making progress: HW 194, SW 191, CW 157, BMI 24.7, GW 135. I had an ESG on 6/19 not VSG so my weight loss is not as great (as expected). I find myself not missing food but I tend to eat the same things so I have to work on adding some variety. I can now eat salad and non mushy vegetables. I've had just few "cheats" i.e. bites of hershey chocolate. Now it doesn't taste as good as I remembered. Same goes for bread, rice, etc. Thank goodness!!

I haven't had one single problem... until today when there was a handful of hair in the drain! It was awful! I know it's normal, but I've had other surgeries and didn't have this problem so it must be because of the rapid weight loss. I'm down 50 pounds . I am doing everything by the book, eating , Vitamins, Water, exercise. Very frustrating!! But, I feel great!

I was sleeved June 15th and I am starting to see some Hair loss as well as a stall. I am stuck at 249 (down from 292) and I must admit that I did let it upset me. Now I am in a bit of a slump over it but trying to make it through.

Ugh! I'm going thru the same thing.. It's driving me crazy! Drinking more Protein and Water. In hopes to break the stall.

Hi June Sleevers,

We are approaching our 3 month Post Op. How are you doing? Progress? What you've learned? The things you wished you known...Etc.

Forgot to add my stats: I lost 36lbs Pre Op and 61lbs Post Op. I tend to lose majority of my weight in the first two weeks of the month and then I stall the rest of the month. I TRY to walk 3 miles every morning and do some strength exercises at night. I love walking but I absolutely hate strength exercise, I have no upper body strength. Uuuggh, the struggle. My food intake is okay. I'm nervous because I feel my appetite increasing. And I had a sip of margarita. Let's just say I won't try that again for while. I instantly felt nauseous. The only issue I have right now, any time I eat Tomato sauce I get heartburn.

Thank you so much! I do think the Pre-Op nerves are the worst. But this was a good decision for me. I feel like I am regaining my life.

My energy level was super low but once I increased my calorie intake it got better. Congrats!

And it will pass. The stalls are hard to get through. My longest stall was 3 weeks too, then the next week I lost 7lbs. keep pushing.

I'm bracing myself for the Hair loss. I had to take blood thinner injections before my surgery for 5 months and my hair thinned at the top of my head. My hair has just now thickened up, I do not want to go through hair loss. But just in case, I have a couple of wigs picked out.
