Here I am it has been 9 years since surgery. October 3rd 2022 will be 10 years since I had surgery. I have been 187 for the past 6 years since I had my son. My weight does go up and down but never passed 187. I still manage to eat small meals. I always stop when full and eat on small plates to make sure I never over do it. I still can not do a lot of sugar. If I even have 2 bites of ice cream I’m done and so sick. I’m honestly ok with that. It keeps me from snacking to much. I am currently a siz
Wow Its been 2 years already since I have done this surgery. I have never felt better, even though I haven't reached my 140 pound goal I have reached my goal of being a size 10 and I fit in medium shirts. I can do way more with my girls then I could before. Last year I found out I was going to have another baby but unfortunately I had a miscarriage at 9 weeks. The doctor said it was because my body had been through so much and that is why they tell you to wait 2 years or more to try to have chil
Today is 1 year and 2 months since I had my surgery! I cant even believe its been that long. I feel great so much better then I ever felt before. I now weigh 172. my weight right now keeps going between 170 and 172. Butttt I am very happy with my weight. I think I have 10 to 20 pounds of extra skin, its really my belly that is the worst. Hopefully in the future there will be a tummy tuck and new boobs to come lol. I definitely have notice some people are jealous when they see me they will point
So it's been 8 months and weight loss has definitely slowed down. I'm at 189 now. I Really want to get to the 150 goal. I'm losing about 6 pounds a month now. Still can only eat 4oz and that's at the most. My hair loss stopped then it started up again. I lost a lot of hair so hopefully it stops soon before I'm bald. Over all still happy with my journey!
So it’s been 7 months since I had the gastric bypass surgery and I think it was the best thing I did for myself. I only lost 6 pounds from April to May and only one inch off my chest. I hope this isn’t the end of the road for me I lost 89 pounds so far and I want to get to the 150 mark. I have been keeping up on my exercising because if I don’t then I can’t sleep at night. Eating wise I can eat about 4 ounces if I eat the whole 4 ounces then I am completely stuffed so I stop when I feel that I h
It's been 6 months since I had the surgery and I lost 84 pounds so far. I'm now in a size 14 from a 24! So happy. I still have 50 more pound to go to be at my personal weight goal but the doctor says I should end up being 130 but i don't know if that is to small. Things are going great I'm able to do more things with the kids. Hopfully we will be taking them to Hersey park this weekend I will finally be able to enjoy the rides and not feel embarrassed. I still have stalls but that's ok with me
So it's been 4 months already! Weight has slowed down but I'm still loosing inches my measurements from January 17th were

I'm so glad I keep measuring myself because when I see the numbers going down I'm soo happy! My hair is a lot thinner then it was I hope I don't go bald. Taking some biotin to help. But things are going great!
Well since the holidays I haven't been keeping track of the things I eat not that everything I eat is bad just I think I'm not eating enough. I'm stuck at 234 pounds and I want to get moving again. I have to eat! I noticed that I eat maybe once or twice a day n maybe that's why I'm not losing? I have been measuring myself.

My measurements the day before surgery were
I hope that when I'm not losing weight I'm losin
Sitting here thinking I've lost 40 pounds since surgery and I'm 8 weeks out today why don't I see a difference in myself?? I seen the picture I attached the before surgery is on the left and the after on the right and I was like wow I do look different! I tired on 1x shirts and they fit great that makes me so happy. I had a old jacket that I tired to wear on Halloween but it didn't fit we'll today I tired it on and it fit perfect! I went to a party on Saturday and everyone kept telling me how am
So today my grandparents where out and bought me a new winter coat. When they asked me what size I wasn't sure because the one I have is 3x and its wayyyy to big but I didn't think a 2x would fit yet. Well they got me a 1x and it FIT with room! I haven't weighed myself for about a week because every time I did I would get upset so after I tried the jacket on I tired the scaled well I'm down to 250! I was hoping to be down to 200 by New Years. Hope that's actually do able. I also stopped at rite
So my doctor and nut says not to count calories just try and get as much protein in as you can. I'm 5 weeks out and I've been counting my calories since I noticed I'm not losing any weight. How many calories should I have everyday? I made a big pot of chili on Sunday and just finished the last of it today which I'm sad about because it was great and eating 3 times a day gave me the protein I needed. I started tracking everything I ate on Tuesday I got up to 930 calories is that to much? Then yes
Why does food taste so different?? Today I made tacos for dinner I loved tacos. I didn't eat the shell or anything else but the meat and it just tasted funny. I don't even want to eat because everything I try just doesn't taste the same. The only things that taste amazing is fruit or vegetables and that doesn't get me the protein I need. Things taste really bland I don't understand why the surgery changes your tastebuds. At least it will keep me away from bad foods because I don't even wanna try
I'm now 3 weeks out and I'm having trouble with the protein shakes. The smell or to even look at them make me sick. When I can get one down I feel nasty and sick for about an hour. What else can I do to get protein? Other then that I've been feeling fine. I eat every 3 hours so this way I'm not hungry or don't get bad cravings. But I didn't think this would be that hard I still want to eat what I use to but I have to stop myself and look at the rule book. Which my doctor put in his own eating st
So today is one week after surgery and I actually feel great. I ate my first blended soup yesterday and it was ok better then just broth and water. But it has been so hard at night when my kids are in bed and husband is at work I get bored and I want to eat. I don't feel hungry it's my mind. That to me is the hardest thing to get through. I haven't gotten sick yet so everything I eat is staying down. I tried some mash potatoes for dinner and they never tasted so good. I put two tablespoons is a
