Hello, any veterens around?



Recommended Posts

Not sure i qualify as a veteran. I’ll be 4 years out in July.
Lost 100 and have maintained that weight loss. Best decision I ever made. Only regret was that I didn’t do this sooner. 😊

I'll be 8 years out this June!! I was doing great but have struggled with a 25 lb regain over the last year since I had covid. ordered some new Protein earlier this week and plan to get totally refocused over the weekend (once it arrives)!

Was doing Keto for the last 6 years and did great initially but have realized that I'm not losing anymore with it because my fat intake was just too high, so going back to a strict post-surgery eating plan.

7 years in early April. Yes up 15 from low but that is ok too. - I have been in n unhealthy mode much of my life so this has been a shift in life since 2015. Life is easier somehow at 135 lbs. Still keeping it low carb… mostly.

Going on 5 yrs this August. Stayed pretty much on track with my weight loss. Gain a pound or two then panic sets in and lose it. I tell people that I'm a mere mortal now when it comes to weight loss. My weight loss super powers have left me. For me, weight losses are in ounces not pounds. It's a daily struggle but one that I'll continue to make for my good health. My best to everyone.

I’m 5 years out and struggling! I never hit goal with the sleeve. I should have had the bypass instead. Best wishes to all in your journey.

@danita75 I wish this was possible, but I'll need to pay out of pocket and use loans most likely. I have insurance, but it doesn't cover it.

I will be at 8 years in November. I never made it to goal but that was ok. Had over a 100lb loss. It started to creep slowly back on- about 10 pounds a year or so. I started to watch more last year and am back to the lowest post-surgical weight so I am very happy with that. I may try for another 25 pounds or so. I haven't decided yet :).

Sleeved in 15 so it has been a bit. I had no severe concerns and do pop in here monthly or so. I am still WSL patient. It is just part of my life. Smiles.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
