I'm only only 5 months post op (sleeve), but I had to post this! HW 308, SW 288, and current weight 198! Yes!!! I've made it to onederland!

I know I haven't had as much to lose as some others might have, but this is really exciting! Haven't been this weight since I was 14! It's been a hard road, and it ain't over yet (well, it never will be, really), but it's great to finally be here!

Plenty of NSVs along the way! No more meds for blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides. No more snoring at night. Went from a tight size 44 waist to a loose 34.

Very impressive

Keep up the good work.

Losing weight during Covid and the Holidays takes dedication

For me one of the mantra that I tried to follow is the the 80 / 20 rule. 80% of the time make good choices and 20% take the freedom to enjoy a treat or indulge (small Portion) of some item that you have not had in a while.

Today I have many things to be Thankful for

I actually have stayed on the wagon, for the most part. I have found decent substitutes for most of my weakness foods. Will occasionally have sugar free jelly bellies to take care of my candy fix (I also use Bariatric Advantage multi chews for my Vitamins and calcium). I make cakes out of almond flour and splenda/stevia for occasional Snacks. Get my potato chip fixe from Quest Protein chips, and my candy bar/cookie fix from Protein Bars (mostly quest, but some kirkland as well).
There are some things I don't think I'll ever be able to substitute, such as pizza. I've tried making an almond flour crust and cauliflower crust, and they're just not the same. Maybe after a year or 2 I'll be willing to have half a slice, I'm just scared of having anything that may end up being a slider food for me.
I sometimes get into food doldrums, but they're manageable so far. We'll have to see how it works for the long term, but I am committed to making this stick.

If you eat meat, try the chicken crust. I actually like it better than regular bread crust! (and the non-weight watching fam likes it too, lol). 3 ingredients: chicken, cheese & egg. #yum

Ooh, I bought a frozen chicken crust pizza weeks ago and I’ve been saving it for a special occasion. I decided that it will be my Thanksgiving dinner (well, 1/3 of it), so I’m planning to try it tonight! It will be my first pizza since July 1 (pizza was my last meal before my pre-op diet), so I do hope it’s good!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
