One-derland after 6 months



Recommended Posts

I have finally reached One-derland after 6 months post surgery. I have lost 94 pounds now and am resetting my goal to 190. I am feeling so good and look like I did when I was in my 30s (I am 58). If you are just starting out, stick with it. It is worth all the suffering and dedication.

Congratulations 👏🎉👏.

How did your weight loss progress? Roughly constant or much quicker in the first couple months?

I lost a lot more weight in the first 3 months than the last 3. I have been steady at 6-8 pounds a month since after the 3rd month. I hope to continue at 4-5 pounds a month until I hit my ideal weight which would pretty much be at my one year point.

Dr Ortiz practice is scary. I myself experience just today with the practice. They have sake coordinators that aren't medical and review patients medical history and decide what medical surgery is best. In my exable I had few doctors here in the US recommending a certain surgery but a coordinator didn't like hat I ask to speak to the doctor about my health. The coordinator felt threatened and stated I am not qualify. The practice may have a better success by reviewing patients medical records to avoid complications for the patients. Unfortunately you can't sue malpractice.

Absolutely inspirational Tony - well done you! 🏆 I'm 3.5 months post op now and 6-8lbs a month for the next few months would do me very nicely!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
