A few weeks shy of my 2 year anniversary



Recommended Posts

Hello all,

It's been a long time since my last post. It's good to see all of the new folks that have found their way to this forum. It was extremely helpful to me both pre & post surgery. My 2 year anniversary is right around the corner (10/8). It was one of the best decisions that I've ever made. I've lost 120+ lbs though I've been in a stall since the COVID-19 lockdowns began. It's been 9 months or so since I've had any kind of pain or dumping. At this point, I can eat just about anything though my stomach is still sensitive first thing in the morning. I can tell that my stomach has stretched some b/c I can eat more in one sitting now. I plan to try a 'reset' and then do some intermittent fasting to get back on track. I'd like to lose another 25lbs.

I've said all that to say this, keep the faith, especially you newbies. I know it's hard but it's worth it and believe it or not, it does get easier.

Be well and stay safe.

Twism44, we were just a day apart in our surgeries. Hard to believe its almost 2 yrs already! Congratulations on your success and hoping you have continued success to get that last 25 lbs off. I feel this has been one of my best decisions and has changed my life in so many ways. Keep up the good work and you will get where you want to be!

Hello Twism44--It is so nice to hear that we can relate. I have been post op from my Gastric Bypass since 2016 and I am now facing a stall. I decided to revisit my preop liquid diet and I am happy to say that I am doing my thing. It feels good to be disciplined. The pandemic led me to each due to boredom while working from home. But now that the gyms are open in NYC I have included my exercise now and am watching what I eat.

Kudos to you with the inspiring words. Thank you! Remaining positive and keeping the faith alive is important. I hope to lose 50 lbs within the next few months.

Be well and stay safe.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
