    Weigh In Wednesday

    I know it's not Wednesday but I made my birthday goal and it's not the 22nd yet. My goal was to be 90kgs or less and I'm 89.6kgs this morning. I'm finding it hard to believe I'm in the 80s.

    August 2018 surgeries

    Hey, the needing to pee thing for me is so normal after ANY surgery. Even when I was only sipping very small amounts I was still up and down heaps to pee. Keep sipping it's important to stay hydrated and your bladder will settle.

    Thanks @CarolC I think the best change of all is the fact I have my confidence and self esteem back despite not being at goal weight yet. That is the best change of all to feel good about myself and happy with how I look.

    I'm now in Obese Category 1 class down from morbidly obese. I do a minimum of 10000 steps work days but generally anything from 12000 to 16000. I take the stairs every time except when I have the food trolley. Getting up the stairs is now easier. I also don't feel like I'm dying at the end of my shift. 27.4kgs gone and 35.9kgs left to lose. Hope everyone else is well, I love reading the updates.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    Thanks @denzel I expected the weight loss to be slower as I was told sips patients lose slower but more over the long term and I will lose for 2 years. I'm actually slightly worried I may end up too thin if there's such a thing lol

    Weigh In Wednesday

    90.8kgs today and down from morbidly obese to obese class 1. Bmi 45 to 34.6 800 grams to my second "big" goal which was to be 90kgs or less for my birthday on August 22nd. I'm going to make it!

    Goal Weight

    I had the craziest goal in mind to be 90kgs or less for my bday (August 22nd) and I'm going to make it! As of yesterday I was 91.9kgs. I can't believe how fast this is all happening. I was told to expect slower weight loss with sips. It's slower but you lose more in the long term. At this rate there's a possibility I might end up too skinny because I was told I'll be losing weight for 2 years then start to stabilise.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    I missed weigh in Wednesday! I did weigh myself yesterday and I'm 92.6kgs. I'm finally less than my husband. Rushing to get ready for work hope everyone else is going well.

    Update

    Amazing results! I don't do exercise because I get in 10000 steps or more on work days as it's a 2 story building so climbing the stairs multiple times, lots of walking, etc. I've found lots of us have weird periods post op from the fb support pages. I had the Depo shot and had my period. 3 weeks later I got it again and it lasted over 2 weeks. I had to get blood tests and ultrasound done to rule out any problems. Luckily nothing for around 3 weeks now. Do you find you feel the cold more? I definitely do and you mentioned summer, I hope I can handle the heat better.

    How Much Fat

    Have you looked on the Optifast website under intensive phase? Don't be scared to call your dietician tomorrow to ask as the advice can vary from each team.

    I take Swisse Calcium and vitamin D, Ferrograd C and Celebrate multivitamin. Celebrate is only Available in the US but that is what's recommended for sips patients. Unsure about Roux en y patients. You will need a chewable for first 4 weeks or as directed by your team.

    How Much Fat

    You are allowed oil each day. It's either 2 teaspoons or 2 tablespoons (sorry my brains not working properly yet I'm sleep deprived). Make sure you have your oil each day as it keeps your gallbladder functioning (this is what I was told). Are you under the care of a dietician?

    I feel amazing. I'm dressed up as Wonder Woman it was superhero day at work. No Way would I have ever fit my costume pre surgery. I'm happy and full of confidence even though I'm not at my goal weight yet. How are you going?

    Weigh In Wednesday

    94.2kgs! Very happy with my progress. I've bought a superhero costume for work tomorrow for superhero dress up day. I hope it fits! It's stretchy so I will try my best. Not long and I will drop down to obese category 1. I was told Sips surgery patients lose weight slower than sleeve patients however they lose weight for 2 years. I was expecting slower weight loss and I'm pleasantly surprised. Everyone is doing so well! Millymollymandy 200 grams is nothing. Denzel I understand the being short thing. I'm 162cm which is taller than some but I'm definitely not a tall lady and I've always tended to carry weight in my tummy even as a size 6 if I put on 1kg it would automatically show in the stomach. Can't wait for my stom to get even smaller.

    My surgeon makes his patients give up all caffeinated drinks pre surgery and early post op. No coffee was killer for me!

    KEEN ON BYPASS need help

    Hi and welcome! I had sips surgery which is sleeve with approx 3 metres of intestines being bypassed. This is my surgeon's choice of surgery for those with diabetes as you don't get wild fluctuations with sugar. I'm in Perth so I can't help with a surgeon recommendation unless you want to fly over here. My surgery was May 17th I did 3 weeks of Optifast prior to surgery and the 2 days before surgery was nourishing liquids only (no solid food however everyone's instructions vary). All up including the 3 weeks of Optifast I have lost 19.9kgs. My bmi was 45 and put me in the morbidly obese category. My bmi is now 37.4 and for the first time in years I'm under 100kgs. Absolutely no regrets here. Research all the surgical options and the differences. Lastly your surgeon will be able to make a recommendation on type of surgery based on your individual circumstances. Best of luck.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    98.2kgs this afternoon. I do weigh most days and a couple of times I've gained but then a day or 2 later lose it plus extra. Trying not to get too caught up with those fluctuations. My size 16 jeggings fit but are tight on the stomach. Also I've got a job! I start Monday. I'm so excited.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    Hi @denzel I'm waiting to hear from my surgeon as I trust his opinion and he is very thorough. The test showed I have inflammation in my body I'm wondering if that's the Hashimotos disease. I have been told if your iron is under 10 you will need an infusion but all the gp wanted to do was repeat the test in a month. No good when I'm exhausted.
  23. Boganlicious

    Weigh In Wednesday

    99.6kgs. Total loss of 18.5kgs. Need to step it up now but I'm exhausted as I'm Iron deficient and the gp who does the iron infusions told me I didn't need it even though my iron is at an 8. He also tried to push a mirena onto me and when I said I would not have anything inserted he said I had staples in my stomach. Quick as a flash I told him that wasn't my vagina. I've asked the Receptionist to fax my results to my surgeon. I'm not particularly happy with the gp I saw.

    Your pre- WLS life - and am I worthy?

    I put off weight loss surgery since 2014 as I couldn't afford phi. I was 103 - 104kgs then. I was 118.1kgs in April of this year. Slowly my weight kept creeping up. My phi had kicked in and the last straw was seeing myself in the photos at my daughter's birthday party in February. I had my appointment in the public system only to be told I still had a 2 year wait. I chose to access my super for the gap with my husband's blessing. At first he was against it as I didn't have much to begin with and being a stay at home mum (currently looking for work) I don't have money going into my super. I had my surgery on the 17th May this year and my current weight is 99.8kgs. I have 45kgs to go. My problem was I was hungry all the time. On Saturday I had a treat - brown rice sushi (I don't eat carbs apart from sweet potato as a rule). I managed 3 pieces whereas Pre surgery I would have eaten 3 x handrolls (I wish I was joking). I also would have carbs with every meal to fill me up because they're cheap and on one income we struggle sometimes. These days I have protein and if I can fit it in some veggies and sweet potato or green peas. I don't like pumpkin much.

    I put glasses on layby last week which cost a small fortune so that can be my treat. My current glasses feel like they are too wide and the shape no longer suits. I'm excited to pick the new ones up when ready. I chose Michael Kor frames oops. It was the only pair I tried on the colour drew me to them so I tried them on and fell in love.
