It is one day from a year for me and I am almost 100lbs down. I'm so excited. I could have done much better but because I have been cheating and now I will force myself to get back on the band wagon. I have cheated with sugar and wine. I absolutely love wine and hard candy. I quit the sugar filled wine and candy. I am now back on my sugar free but imagine where I would have been had I not cheated. Please folks learn from me. Almost 100lbs down but could have been so much further. I will do bette
Hello folks, I am happy to report that my BMI has reduced from 51 to 38.4. That is more exciting to me than looking at the numbers on the scale drop. Slowly but surely I am becoming a healthier me. Yippy Skippy
312 to 224 and more to come
I am happy I have made it this far with relatively no problems. Initially it was challenging learning to take in less food and managing my allergies but I have come to the conclusion that if you do everything they tell you, it will be easier than trying to reinvent the wheel (which is what I tried on my occasions)
I am officially 82lbs down. I am officially five sizes down, CRAZY RIGHT.
At six months your weight loss progress decreases. Now the challenge is I notice that I eat more
What does it mean that I can eat a chocolate cookie with no consequences? Is there something wrong with this picture. That makes me nervous. I am still loosing but is it going to stop at some point?
In addition to that, I can eat more than I was initially. That scares me.....
Well folks I can now report of more progression. Prior to the surgery, I would be embarrassed to tell folks if I could not eat something because of my allergies. I mean, really, looking at me you could not tell I ever missed a meal. So I would rather have an allergic reaction than not eat something someone had prepared for me. However, I have grown since my surgery on June 20, 2011. Now I not only refuse food I am allergic to but also refuse to eat more than I can handle. Victory? Yes!!!!
I must know if I am the only one having this problem. Ever since my surgery whenever I eat in front of others I begin to feel as if the food will not leave my esophagus almost like it is going to chock me. This is not once or twice, this is every time I eat in front of someone else. , It bothers me so much that sometimes I will regurgitate everything I eat then go back to eat.
It is more of a sensation of my food not going completely. Its so much pressure that I feel I cannot breath. Late
Folks I am actually seeing progress. Right now six weeks post op, I am 50lbs down. :P Yippy Skippy. I celebrate not just by the scale but also in other ways as well. :blink: One other way is how my clothing fits, I am already a size down, some of my clothes literally fall off. EXCITING!!!!!
Now I have to start putting in my time with more exercise. I have had it easy for a while because of having three surgical procedures at once. Back to the pool for me folks. I will let
Now artificial sweeteners have been a life saver for Gastric Bypassers around the world. Making life just a little more bearable to our restrictive life styles.
For some reason I am what I guess one of the unfortunate few that has developed an intolerance for artificial sweeteners. All of sudden 3rd week post op, I am dumping every day and have finally realized that it is my sugar free powdered drink mixes. Even a light sprinkling into 16 oz of water will bring the cold sweats, heaves in
Okay folks I am almost four weeks post op, and still on my pain meds almost daily. Let me add I had two additional surgeries with some complications. But right now I am thinking it is taking a long time for me to feel close to 100%.
Anyone else feel that recovery has been a slow process?
