    May 2018 sleevers and bypassians

    Hey Zaruse. I will be 12 months post op on the 17th. I've maintained my goal weight for a few months now although do fluctuate here and there. Atm I'm 53.7kgs which is under my goal of 55kgs, it really depends on the day. I would like to have another body scan done as I was 73kgs at the only scan I've ever had done. I'm very interested to know my body fat percentage as well as muscle mass. I'm still loving life and the positive changes. I am so much more confident in all aspects of my life. I never had a problem with chatting to others before such as shop assistants but now I feel more comfortable doing so like they want to talk back. If someone looks at me in public I no longer think omg they're judging how fat I am, why are they looking at me? Clothes shopping is amazing and I've dragged out my old skinny clothes I had stashed away. Funnily enough some of them fit perfectly whereas others are too big or don't fit properly in certain areas. I range from a size 8 (jeans and even jackets) to a 10 as sizing is funny and there is no standard. I'm not sure if I would need a 12 in certain clothes anymore as a 10 seems to be a perfect fit apart from the odd pair of jeans or jackets where an 8 fits just right. I need a new wardrobe as I've had to throw out so much even things I bought at 70kgs thinking my size wouldn't change much are swimming on me. What else? Blood results are all good and I see my surgeon soon for a follow up. I'm the person I want to be. I've changed my hair completely both colour and gone pretty short. I'm currently growing it back but will be around 6 months until it reaches bob length. I never would have chopped my hair off pre weight loss even though I really wanted that cut because I felt my face was too fat. Nothing else to report except I have no regrets. If I could have done this earlier I would have. When I did have my surgery almost a year ago the timing was right for me.

    I'm so glad the consult went well. 5 months will fly by for you (I hope). I personally find it hard to believe it's already April. 2 more months and we will be halfway through the year. Keep posting, reading up on everything and asking any questions you may think of no matter how big or small. Does your surgeon have a fb or online support group? Mine has a fb group for his patients which I find really helpful and he even replies to posts as well as posts good information. This is such an exciting time for you. It's the first big step to your new life.

    Getting back on track

    Glad to have you back. Good on you for realising you had a problem and changing your mindset. I recently lost my grandma and I'll be honest I've been eating too much crap. It feels ok at the time then I feel guilty and feel bad physically. I need to get back on track also. Let's keep posting when we need the support and try to change the negatives for good habits. I hope everything is ok with your band and your check up with the surgeon goes well.
  4. Wow! You must be so happy. I can't wait for my 360 body lift.

    Long time no post. I've posted in weigh in Wednesday but want to update here I pretty much made it to my goal weight today! 55.1kgs so 100 grams off. I've lost 63kgs all up. Very very happy. I do fluctuate by 1kg or so but that's always been the case for me even before my weight problem started when I was slim and maintained it for a few years. I would bounce up and down by 2kgs depending on the day and what I'd eaten, cycle, etc. How's everyone else from May going?

    Weigh In Wednesday

    Guess what?! 55.1kgs this morning and my goal was 55kgs. 100 grams off it. Total loss 63kgs which is an entire person and that seems crazy and really puts it into perspective. I still fluctuate a kg or so at times. I'll be honest my diet isn't always great so I want to pull my finger out and make some changes. I think if I was eating less carbs the weight would still be falling off as with sips I was told weight loss happens for 2 years but I don't particularly want to lose more or if my body has other ideas I don't want to go under 50kgs. I'd like to have another body scan done when I get a chance as I was 73kgs at my first one. I've said it before I'll say it again - anyone sitting on the fence debating whether they should do it just do it! Zero regrets. What took me so long was not having private health insurance, messing about in the public system too long and then 2 x more pregnancies (1 of which ended in a miscarriage). I also didn't have my husband on board at first and that was important to me as it was a big financial decision to access the little super I had. He is beyond happy. He loves the new me both physically and mentally as I'm happier and not down on myself all the time. Anyway I'm rambling. Just wanted to share.

    baked beans

    I always hated baked beans and post op found myself craving warm baked beans with melted cheese. Tasted so good. Amazing how the taste buds can change even day to day. Steak is now hit or miss for me. Some days it's nice most of the time I crave it then it just doesn't do it for me. I would think even though they have carbs that beans and legumes are still ok as they can also be counted as protein depending who you talk to.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    I missed Wednesday as the batteries on my scales are getting low so they don't always work. Need to find out what size they take. Anyway I weighed myself just then and am down to 56.5kgs with just 1.5kgs to go to goal weight. If I was to lose more than my goal I wouldn't be upset as my dietician told me some slight weight regain at the 12 and 24 months post op is quite normal. I plan on having a body scan done in a few weeks as at my last one I was 73kgs. I'd like to know how my body fat and muscle mass is looking. Loving all the positive changes not just appearance wise but being able to do fun stuff with hubby and the kids eg go to the zoo and not be in agony from walking. I've lost 61.6kgs which is an entire person which is just crazy to think about.

    Best tummy tuck and arm surgery prices

    I read that not only if the skin is causing issues but if you have lost 5 or more bmi points that you are eligible for rebates.

    Checking in

    I had sips and last time my surgeon saw me I believe he said I had lost 94% of my excess weight. I see him again early May.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    Checking in and remembered it's Wednesday! 57.7kgs after coffee and breakfast. Feel I'm doing really well.

    Before and after

    The before photo was taken 2 days before my sips surgery in May last year. I've cropped out my face and a visible tattoo but there I was in all my glory. The afters are from today and wearing a size 8 fitted skirt with a zipper with total loss of 60.5kgs (was 61kgs but today I was up as I'd eaten and had coffee before weighing myself). I hope these photos help those pre op as I found the transformations inspiring - I still do.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    I keep forgetting about weighing in on Wednesdays and I've gotten out of the habit of weighing myself daily. Anyway I weighed myself today after coffee and breakfast and I'm up 500 grams (probably my breakfast) at a weight of 57.6kgs. I'm beyond happy with my progress. I look and feel great and only have 2.6kg to goal weight but as I said I'm not focusing on magic numbers anymore. I'm slimmer now and have more muscle definition than I did in my 20s. I had my first negative comment when a coworker commented that I'd lost so much weight and another said to her that now I look weak. Um ok then. I said no way I have muscles I never had before and flexed my arm showing off my definition lol I found it a bit rude to be honest. I am healthy bmi now whereas before I was still in the obese categories.

    ADELAIDE BYPASS HELP

    Thanks @Bigm666 I remember seeing all the transformation photos before I had my surgery. I had a crazy thought/hope of what if I got to my goal weight in time for Christmas. Then I thought no that's crazy as with sips you lose slower than sleeve but lose more in the long run. Well Christmas came and I was 61 - 62kgs. Now it's February and I'm just about at goal. You can do this! Just keep in mind that everyone loses weight at different rates. I also have Hashimotos Disease of the thyroid which also made weight loss hard for me before I had the surgery.

    ADELAIDE BYPASS HELP

    Almost 60kgs now. 59.7kgs to be exact which is a whole person! Sips is a sleeve slightly larger than a stand alone sleeve but then approximately 3 metres of intestines gets bypassed causing a malabsorption effect from the calories you do eat. I'm not sure if you have heard of something called a duodenal switch which is very common in America, sips is a modified version of that surgery. Not all surgeons offer sips. My surgeon was one of 3 surgeons in Australia to first offer sips.
