New to this site 7 months post op



Recommended Posts

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Cindi and I was sleeved in June 2020. I have lost 77lbs so far. I honestly thought I would be further along by now. I think that maybe I could have done better and have started out this year eating better now to get in exercise!!! Looking forward to talking with all of you!

77 lbs is great! I lost about 100 in a year, but you lost yours in seven months - so you're way ahead of where I was.

Hi Cindi! I’m Alyssa. I was also sleeved in June of this year. I was 330lbs before surgery and am now 254. I’ve been stuck at 254 for like a month and a half now and it’s driving me crazy! I also feel hungry pretty often now.

Ahh! We are stuck twins! Hopefully we move forward from this! I recently started Zumba and am eating only chicken with veggies or eggs with bacon. I do have a weakness for sweet tea that I make with little sugar. It seemed like just a few months ago I didn’t even have to try that hard!

Congrats on your surgery & welcome. You’ve lost 77lbs that’s amazing. I lost about 70lb in 6 months so pretty similar.

It’s going to take time. Remember you didn’t put on your weight in a short time frame so you can’t expect to lose it quickly. Surgery isn’t a quick & easy fix but you’ll get there. Stick to your plan, meet your Protein & fluid goals each day. Take time to learn new healthier cooking methods & try more nutritious foods. It’s a lot of learning & changing from what you used to eat, how you ate & why you ate. But it’s so worth it.

Good luck.
