Don’t give up at all. 35 lbs gone is fantastic especially if it stays gone forever.
Also it’s not the end of the road because you may continue to lose if you’re diligent. Track everything you eat and drink consistently to see if you accidentally placed yourself into maintenance calories and adjust from there.

And if you ever feel like you need more help, go right back to your surgeon and ask for it. There are more avenues they can suggest if you ask (nutrition counseling, drug therapy, behavioral adjustments, etc)

Good luck & cheering you forward

fill out your profile if you can. what was your starting weight, surgery weight... height. what surgery did you get? How is your eating? what does a normal day of food look like?

Yes I agree - if you can tell us a little bit more about yourself then people may be more able to help. Particularly what you mean when you say you've stuck to your diet. What does that entail? Protein and Water goals only? Calorie goals? Please let us help you!!!

I understand PCOS can make your weight loss a longer & more challenging journey. So you’re carrying an extra hindrance to what your trying to achieve. Doesn’t mean you are or will fail. What dues your surgeon say? Do you still see your dietician? Do you still measure & track what you’re eating? Are you having regular blood tests to ensure you’re not lacking anything? Are you still losing weight even if it’s very slowly?

Sorry for all the questions but it does help us offer suggestions & to share common experiences.

Don’t give up.

I know exactly how you feel. I had surgery March 9 of 2021 and I am sure I have something going on with my hormones too as I stopped losing and started gaining. I have an appointment with the endocrinologist December 6th and can’t wait to figure out what is going on and hope there is something they can do. I have seen people with PCOS really struggle and it seems so unfair. Try to Celebrate what you have lost though and that you have kept it off. Every little bit makes you that much healthier. Keep talking to your doctors. There are medications and stuff you can try that may give you the extra edge you need. I know how discouraging it can be to compare yourself to others who are doing better but try to just look at where you were pre surgery and don’t give up.

What do you mean by "try" to stick to your diet? I ask because I also have PCOS & one of my fears is it interfering with the last 45lbs I want to lose. Do you follow your program diet for the most part or have a few cheat meals?

some people loose slower than others. a lot depends on your starting weight.. what do you use to track your food? do you weigh and measure ?

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
