I went from 249 to 163, which was lowest probably for a day. I am 181.2 today, Sept 21. I can't get out of the 180's. I have my 2-yr checkup and I feel so embarrassed. I fear that breast reduction is the only thing that will get me to goal. I went from 48 to 40; I should be feeling good about that. BUT I'm a 40-I. I want reduced to a D. How can I get out of the 180's? My Dr wanted me at 150 at my 2-yr, and I failed.

You went from 249 to 180's...you did not FAIL. Don't dismiss what you have achieved because of a setback. Maybe you didn't reach your doctor's expectations, but this is a process that may have many bumps in the road. Maybe your doctor or nutritionist can give you some ideas to help restart losing weight.

If you are not already, maybe start tracking food, Protein & Water again to see if there are slight changes you can make there. There are also "pouch" reset plans that might help get the scale moving again.

If you are carrying a lot of weight in your chest, maybe that isn't factored into your doctor's expected weight loss.

I hope your 2 year appointment goes well & you are able to get to where you feel happy & comfortable with your weight. Don't forget how far you've come! 🤩

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?
