Even though I’ve been in a weight loss stall for almost 3 weeks I am thrilled that my doctor has taken me off all of those meds! After reading about the dreaded 3 week stall I know the weight will start dropping again soon. In the meantime my clothes are getting WAY loose!!:D

Thanks! When I feel like the scale is moving too slow sometimes I just focus on the fact that I don’t have to take all those meds!:D

If it's any consolation I lost a total of 27 lbs at my 2 month post op and you have already done this plus an extra 5 at 6 weeks !! You are doing very well

I am thrilled for you! Isn’t this the best feeling? I’m a T2 diabetic in remission and I’m also off all meds. Cheers! giphy.gif

Thanks! Seems I lost more pre surgery than I have post surgery. I’m keeping my chin up because I can feel the weight coming off even if it is slow. I’ll take that!:D

I lost 15 on the 2 week liquid diet and 14 lbs the first month, so I totally get it.   Time will start flying by and you will hit your goal by the year. Are you keeping a journal ?  Did you take measurements ?

I’m completely thrilled for you, @Animalrescuer18!! I know how it feels to get off of those meds (especially insulin!) and that’s one of THE greatest reasons to have this surgery!! ❤️ 

CONGRATS!!
