5 months post op - Thankful



Recommended Posts

It has been 5 months and I am so surprised at what a 5 months it has been. I have learned more about my body in the last few months that I ever knew in my previous 40+ years. I have learned the best foods for me, which ones keep me satisfied longer, which ones disagree with me and the ones that hinder weight loss. I am also learning how to leave food on my plate. Some things are easier to learn (portion sizes) while others are still an issue (remembering to eat slowly).

I have lost 84.6 overall….61.4 pounds since surgery…. and a combined total of 46 inches. As of today I am also officially in the overweight category. I am off my blood pressure and cholesterol medicine and my thyroid meds have been reduced. My knees and back feel better and I have so much energy!

I have a lot to be thankful for but today I am most thankful that my husband has taken over the thanksgiving meal duty!

It’s mind blowing isn’t it. I still think ‘how did I not know this before?’ & I’m still discovering things at 2 & a half years out.

Congratulations on your progress & successes so far. (And for getting your hubby on Thanksgiving duties. 😉) Whoo hoo!!

Congratulations! I'm 5'9 and my starting weight was right around the same as yours. I was sleeved on December 08 and have already dropped weight- hoping that I too can reduce my thyroid medications and get rid of my sleep apnea machine once I drop under 200 lbs. Best of luck moving forward!

Congratulations!! This makes me so happy for you! :) Especially that you‘re bettering your relationship with food. Thats huge!

I‘m curious. Have you had any weight stalls? I‘m plus/minus around the same time as you and I‘m currently in my second three week long ish stall 😬

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
