Had surgery 3/2/2021 (Sleeve) and down 48 pounds which is good, but I feel like its low comparably speaking!! I've been off blood pressure meds and not snored since Day 1, so there's that!

I had mind 3/9 and I have lost only 43 pounds. Some of us are just slower losers I think. Your non scale victories are great though!!

Hi All!! Had bypass on March 3rd and passed my 100lbs lost mark today!! Please keep in mind that I lost 45lb pre-op so it's about 56lbs post-op so don't compare it to the full 100lbs. I know we all stress out comparing weight loss, but I just wanted to Celebrate with my March peeps. Making good eating choices has become more of a struggle since I'm off for the summer. I'm hoping when I start back next week that getting on a schedule will help.

We've had a great summer! I've been able to keep up with my kids, ride roller coasters again and shop in the non-plus side of the store!

Hope everyone is doing well!!

It’s my 5 month surgiversary today!! Best decision I have ever made! I have lost 81 pounds in total, 68 post surgery. Not only do I feel so much healthier but there are so many non scale victories too. Only real downside has been losing so much hair but I would still have gone ahead with the surgery. I set my goal weight to 165 pounds because I actually don’t know how I would look at that weight as an adult. I may revise it when I get there, but it feels pretty good to be so much closer to that goal.

I really hope you’re all doing well and are happy to have had the surgery. I’d love to hear about your journeys to date, the good and even the not so good 😊. Below is a before picture and one taken yesterday. I hated being in photos so I didn’t take one just before surgery but I now wish I had.

I had surgery at 297 or something (I can’t remember) and I am now 232.
my goal weight was 195. I JUST started losing again after a massive stall that lasted WEEKS. I get like I was stuck at 245 forever!

food wise: I’m getting in 50- 60 grams of Protein (my protein levels are lower than the average patient because of kidney issues)

Caloric intake is 700-800 a day. I really can’t get in much sometimes but I make sure to hit my protein and Water goals.

sample meals for a day:

breakfast: scrambled egg (I’ll eat maybe half

snack: cheese stick

lunch: P3 and a yogurt (sometimes I can’t finish the yogurt and only eat half)

Dinner: 2 chicken wings and a bite or two of a side, but not much and I often pass on the side completely and just eat the chicken.

I just had my call from the dr and they told me I was doing great…. So I guess they aren’t concerned with my stall 🤷🏼‍♀️
i honestly can’t even give them an accurate weight because the 232 was when I had jeans, shoes, etc… all my clothes. So I might be 220 something lol

I have a tough time finding before photos. I never wanted my photos taken ever…

tnis was one of me not even at my heaviest…. I had actually lost a good amount of weight in the striped shirt photo…
and then another of me now.

before: size 26/28 now: size 16 and going down

before size 44 G bras now: size 38DD

most of the change is in how I feel.. I was walking with a cane and was wheelchair bound. Now I can walk without problems

Hello Bill. I am March 9 surgery. I am still 14 pounds from goal (11 from normal BMI). To slow down the loss I have heard others suggest adding in healthy fats like nuts/nut butters, avacado, and healthy oils.

My first two months I spent in and out of the hospital. They were tough! Week 10 onto now is much easier.

      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 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      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.
