I’m down 36LBS from surgery weight but 51 down from highest weight! I STILL have some muscle soreness and definitely some mental anxieties.

Down 35 from surgery (3/3) and 81 from October! Doing really well!! I feel so much better and my joints aren't hurting as much. Recently, I find myself wondering if I'm eating TOO much so I need to remind myself to be mindful of my eating. The only downside I've experienced... LOL... I used to use the bathroom as my hiding place. I could sit there for a long time and just read and enjoy the peace. Now my leg falls asleep too soon! LOLOLOLOLOL Hope everyone is doing well!

I am down 37 pounds overall. 23 since surgery. I am feeling pretty good. Feeling like I have gotten a groove going. I still forget to drink like I should when I am out and about, but I have been setting timers if I know I will be out for a while. it’s a process.

I had my surgery March 24th. I’m doing well…. I am down 30 pounds from my surgery weight and 70 pounds from my highest weight.

in definitely into smaller sizes. My go to was 3XL and now I’m wearing XL (kinda strange considering I never thought I would ever go below an xl…..but I’ve got about 80 more pounds to lose so I think I will definitely get smaller than an xl now).

10 weeks out from RNY on 3/3 and huge success to share!! Went to the endocrinologist today for the first time since surgery. A1C in October was 6.8 making me a diabetic. It's what really sparked my WLS. (6-6.4 is pre-diabetic and anything over 6.5 is diabetic) Today, I'm at 4.6!! I am officially cured of my diabetes!! WOOT!!! Also, in 2019, my cholesterol was 218 - today it's 104!!

For the scale victory, I'm down 37.8lbs from surgery and 83.8lbs from October!!

I am discouraged. My surgery was March 30th, I lost 28 pounds but this week somehow gained 7 pounds. My cycle is on but I don't understand. I'm feeling so depressed.

I am guessing you haven't eat 7lb worth of excess calories. It is very likely Fluid retention due to hormones, as your hormones balance out as you go through your cycle, the fluid retention will lessen. Keep up the fluids, keep on doing your post op program, you'll be fine.

I feel like the slacker of out group. Sleeve on March 24; down 38 lbs from highest and 33 from surgery day. Feeling fine other than Vitamin nausea. Feel I should have lost more.

I had mine March 9th and have only lost 25 pounds since surgery. Everyone is different.

I am really struggling with food lately. I make something…. Then one bite in I am am just “Bleh” and I don’t feel like eating anymore.
I made a scrambled egg this morning with 1/4 of a banana….. I had two bites of eggs and two bites of banana and I was done…..I gave the rest to my four year old. That’s pretty typical of every meal these days except for when I get a chick fil a market salad….. but then that tides me over for at least four/five meals 😂

I had surgery March 2. My menstrual cycles got out of whack and I went from missing my period to a heavy really long cycle during a two week stall. I've had a few stalls, but currently down from 308 to 260 today (48). The NP in the doctor's office said for me to lose between 12 and 25 more pounds between April and middle of July. I'm currently down 8 of that. It is slow. I lose weight then stall, while I am stalled I lose inches, and then back to weight loss. It is slowly coming off.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
