I am so happy today! 50 pounds gone! It has taken 3.5 months, which is longer than I thought it would take, but it's 50 pounds gone which is more than I've ever lost before regaining! I lost 25 pounds the first month and have been averaging 10 pounds for the last 2.5. I had to resign myself to NOT getting to goal by the holidays, but I have felt amazing, never deprived and my skin and hair look great! Slow and steady wins the race!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

How awesome! Congrats to you! You'll get there. Maybe not in the timeframe you originally wished for, but think where you'd be if you hadn't even started :)

Wow that’s awesome. Congrats! Did you have any stalls? right now I’m down 29 lbs but I lost most the first week following surgery. 11/29 will be two months since surgery. I’m thinking I need to adjust my diet a little. I would say I’m eating about 700-800 calories a day. Carbs are at a minimum. Any suggestions?

Oh yes!! The stalls! And coming out of them, losing 3 pounds and then stalling again! I also am eating around 800 calories a day, I use MyFitnessPal and track everything! I make sure I get in my Protein and my Water and try not to stress. When I start getting crazy, I look at how much I lost the prior month and how far I've come in the last 6 months and realize I am so much better off than I was. I eat Breakfast and I try to have a mid morning healthy snack or a Protein Shake to boost my protein. I also know that snacking at night is not my friend! LOL And keep track of non scale victories! Like putting on something and realizing it's not too tight! It will come off...try not to compare yourself to others.

And I forgot to say...read anything you think will help! The Favorite Grocery Products thread is amazing and food Before and After will give you great ideas on what to eat and how much people are eating. I have started shopping at Trader Joe's and Aldi looking for the best products I can get (for the cheapest price). I have a board on Pinterest for Low Carb Meals and Gastric Sleeve ideas. Most people on here are so kind and want to help! But the search functions is your friend! Stalls, Headaches, coffee, Alcohol...whatever you want to know...I have typed in my surgeon's name so many times!
