    May 2018 sleevers and bypassians

    I haven't weighed in for a couple of weeks. I have been naughty lately but I'm back on track now. After being stuck at the same weight or even fluctuating a few hundred grams I've finally lost a little more. 118.1kgs starting weight 60.9kgs currently 55kgs goal weight I have mixed feelings. Sometimes I love how I look while others I feel too skinny as I have visible bones now. My ribs and collarbone stick out, when on my side my hip bones jut out, my upper arms while a little flabby from the excess skin are the smallest they have ever been even when I weighed less and the back of my shoulders are boney. My husband said it's just because I'm not used to being this size as I was big for so long. I don't know. I've even been called skinny a couple of times and I'm now smaller than others who I used to think were slim. That's a weird thing to get my head around.

    Loosing weight

    I second Opti to try and kick start everything. If you aren't already fill up on free veggies. How far post op are you? My dietician told me some weight regain is very common at 12 and 24 months post op and diet may need tweaking eg less carbs. I'm almost 8 months post op so not an expert. Are you eating enough protein? Drinking enough water?

    I'm down 52.1kgs and I have 11kgs to get to my goal weight. I'm wearing size 11 jeans and I'm 6kgs off weighing what I did when I first met my hubby. Life is good. I'm wearing things and shopping at places I never would have thought of before.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    I weighed myself yesterday and am 66.4kgs. So close to my goal now and my rings need to be resized again. I'm down to a size 10 - 12.

    Jeans

    Just wondering when I will be able to wear jeans or jeggings? While my stomach has shrunk it's still out of proportion to the rest of my body making real pants hard to wear eg jeggings because they either strangle me around my stomach or they fit my stomach but are baggy everywhere else. I know you can't target where the weight will come off but I'm desperate to wear something other than leggings! Plus applying for jobs and if I'm successful black pants for work is a must. Is there a specific brand I should try?

    69.3kgs. I had surgery Sunday for a female problem. I'm ok just sore and really tired. I'll be honest I've been eating comfort food, time to knuckle down.

    Just wanted to update I'm 200 grams away from losing 50kgs. That's an entire person! I'm down to 68.3kgs as posted in weigh in Wednesday and couldn't be happier. My little boy recently turned 1 (how time flies) and I'm so happy with the photos taken at his party. I didn't have anything to pick apart except my weird facial expression in one of them but I had a good laugh about it. I was 6 months post op on the 17th November. Would love to get down to 55kgs but will see what happens and how I'm feeling. The best part is even though I'm not at goal weight and haven't had my plastic surgery yet I'm just so happy with how I look and for the most part feel comfortable in my skin. My husband is thrilled too. I can't keep his hands off me and of course not just the physical changes that he's attracted to but he loves that I'm happy and confident. How are all the other May people going?

    Too much weight loss

    Best bet is to speak to her dietician. I'm slightly worried I could end up loosing too much as I had sips surgery which means a slower weight loss however it's falling off and I'm almost at my goal. My dietician said it would be a matter of upping carbs in particular and she would work with me to stabilise my weight if it came to that. She also says your body stops when it's comfortable. What is your friend's bmi like? Is it normal, underweight, etc.

    68.3kgs. I made it to the 60s!
  11. Hi. While I had sips surgery not sleeve I hope you don't mind me posting about the benefits of the weight loss. I can have fun at the park with my kids eg go down the slide, etc. I can go swimming instead of making excuses not to go. I can walk into my favourite shop Ice Design and fit a Medium or Large in most things unless the style is too tight for my curves or belly. I am a 12 - 14 now and I love clothes shopping. I can go running. Outings are no longer painful for me from just walking eg the zoo. Yes I have excess skin which I hate as well as a hanging fat roll on one thigh. I am having plastic surgery in 2 stages once I get to goal weight. Also when people look at me in public or catch my eye I no longer feel self conscious like they're looking at me with disgust. I actually had a young man catch my eye and smile. I couldn't believe it. Not to mention my blood results were great whereas pre surgery my cholesterol was high as was fasting insulin and fasting blood sugar. My surgeon told me I was headed for type 2. Hope this helps. Yes there's risks and negatives but for me the positives outweigh any negatives. What do I hate the most? Being hungry from not getting a lunch break then around 2pm when I get home wanting lunch AND coffee but having to choose. Not meant to eat and drink but even if it was recommended it's either one or the other. A coffee will fill my tummy and leave no room for lunch. The new portion sizes will become the norm for you. Most things still taste the same but for me the majority of the time steak tastes rubbish. It's a head disappointment because my head says it's craving a steak then it doesn't taste good. I can live without steak tasting good though.

    Yes! I have that wrinkly bit there too! I'm planning a lot of plastic surgery in 2 stages. 360 body lift, breast work, arm reduction, thigh lift with lipo.

    Yes it includes 3 weeks pre Optifast. I get most of my exercise at work climbing stairs and I do minimum 10000 steps. I drink protein water. I have only just started thinking about exercise. I went for my first run last week and was pleased with how far I could jog non stop. I also did some hand weights. I had a body scan today and was pleased with my muscle mass and body fat percentage. Body fat 30.3% and the target range for females it said 20 - 30%. I'm 72.1kgs at home. I was 73kgs there. Visceral fat was in acceptable range. I still want to reduce it further. Im hoping to get to 55kgs but also build muscle. I don't want to be skinny fat.

    73.7kgs today with under 20kgs to go. Feeling amazing.

    Nearly there

    So far I'm down 43.3kgs and I have 20kgs to go. Technically 19.8 to get to my personal goal but I'm not sure how to change target weight on the monitor my weight app. My weight loss has definitely slowed down but I am still losing. It seems so close yet so far. I had to share as I'm so happy with my progress.

    Another milestone

    This morning I hit yet another milestone, 20.5kgs gone. I've been trying to crack that 20kgs and the other day was so close at 19.9kgs lost. I am wearing my size 16 jeggings and my size 16 jeans can go up I just can't do them up yet. I bought those jeans years ago but couldn't get them over my thighs so imagine my shock when they went all the way up. To anyone sitting on the fence - do it! No regrets here.

    Another milestone

    Hi Kylie23! Sips was my first wls. I'm down to the mid 70s. My surgeon was Dr Ravi Rao and I was more than happy with him. Energy wise I am still living on coffee some days I have more energy than others. I started back at work in July and I'm on my feet all day. Considering I was so tired I was constantly napping pre surgery I'm doing well.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    Yesterday 75.7kgs. Today 76.1kgs. I'm sticking with the weight of 75.7kgs the extra 400 grams is probably just bloating and will go. I'm 5.7kgs off my pre pregnancy weight with my firstborn all those years ago. I'm 10.7kgs off being a normal bmi. I was using the calculator last night and worked out my pre pregnancy weight of 70kgs I was technically overweight although I looked alright.

    Have Put on Weight

    From what I've read on fb support groups when starting purée and soft foods it's very normal to stall or even gain weight. Don't stress it will start moving again. I've had stalls and even gained a couple of times (which did come back off) and I'm almost 5 months post op. Hang in there.

    Pregnancy after Gastric sleeve and gall bladder removal

    I had my wls post kids but suffered heartburn and vomiting the entire 9 months with my son. I tried maxalon, ginger tablets and Zofran but nothing helped and it wasn't particular foods that set me off because I could eat something one day and not vomit, eat it again the next day and vomit 2 - 3 times. Wish I could help with some miracle cure but I didn't find it.
