Good on you Millymollymandy, unfortunately i found 300gms of the 400 you lost. So i'm 66.8, sooo very happy with that. It is a constant concern that the weight will come back as ive been here before, lost and gained several times, but, just last night i ate too fast and didnt chew properly and was reminded that he sleeve is definitely still doing its job. How did you go this week Denzel? Hope you had a great one, i dont just mean weight related! Cheers.
Hi there, Wednesday again, down 300gms to 66.5. It looks like just the three of us weighing in, there used to be a lot more but i guess they've moved on to other things. Anyway its great to catch up with you on a weekly basis, it reminds me that sometimes you go up and sometimes down, but as long as you are accountable you can get back on track. In saying that, Denzel, you are still doing so well, its the longterm that is concerning. I've lost (probably 100kgs) so far in my lifetime, but have always gained back and more, but i feel the support now that i never had in tbe past. Millymollymandy, i'm so excited for you and cant wait till you achieve your goal. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.
Hi MissAsh, I'm staggered that you are on baked beans and tuna. I was on puree food for 21 days before going to mushies ao no real food until 6weeks after op. Perhaps you are still healing. Wish you all the best. Cheers.
Down 100gms to 66.8 this week, still happy. You are doing so well on maintenance Denzel, I'm still "overweight" by 1kg according to bmi. Millymollymandy, still going strong i see. Have a great week guys. Cheers.
Hi all, No change this week, 66.9. Confession time, i too, weigh myself everyday and worse still, i keep a record of my weight on my calendar. I find it keeps me accountable to myself. Well done this week to Denzel and Millymollymandy, hope everyone else had a great week. I agree that maintenance is the hardest, but now the sleeve gives me hope that i can stay in control. Watch this space in a couple of years. Cheers.
Hi Bella100, I was advised to buy a calcium and pregnancy vitamin, cant remember their names but ended up throwing them out as i cannot stomach big or hard pills, they come right back up, even if i cut them. I take centrum vita gummies multi for women which are super easy to swallow and dont taste bad either. They say one a day, but i take 2 to be on the safe side. I also take fish oil, the soft gel ones go down ok. Im nearly 2 years post op and my last blood test was good. Hope this helps and good luck with your new life. Cheers.
Hi Larnie16, Try some v8 vegetable juice and its surprising how tasty beef broth (cup a soup) is after having opti. Im 19 months post op and went from size 22_24 to 12-14. I didnt think it would be possible, like you i suffered from knee and back pain and was diagnosed with high blood pressure. It really hit home when i couldn't even haul my body up the step of a bus. Its all good from here on so enjoy the journey. Cheers.
Hi there, Up 500gms this week, so 66.9. Yes, Denzel i'm over the moon with where I'm at now. The surgeon was expecting me to get down to 75kgs and at the time i would have been very happy, but was secretly hoping for 70 so I'm ecstatic to yoyo between 66 and 67.5. You are doing so well Denzel and i hear ya with the cheese and alcohol, it becomes a bit of a habit so i try to fit it in my program by being stricter on the carbs. Welcome back millymollymandy, you have discovered the secret to doing a holiday the right way, trying what you like and walking, well done. You better go to the op-shop for your workpants as i think you will need to downsize regularly. Have a great week everyone. Cheers.
Ok its weigh in wednesday again. Down to 66.4 so down 100gms, still very happy. Im finding it harder to drink water at this time of year. How you doin Denzel? Hope millymollymandy is having a ball. Good luck to everyone for this week. Cheers.
Don't blame anyone for not stripping off this time of year, unfortunately i live in sunny Qld so no excuses. Down that same 500gms so 66.5. If this continues i will be very happy. Never thought i would reach my goal 0f 70.00kg, my surgeon thought 75.00. Cannot drop the ball as all my clothes now fit this body. Denzel, im sure you will be rewarded for all your good work with the houndies. Cheers.
Don't be sohard on yourself Denzel, look at what you have achieved. You continue to inspire the rest of us and especially when we falter, we are only human. Every now and then i look at the NSV comments on this site, Love Them, they are a great eye opener. Great to hear from you millymollymandy, as we have missed you. Sounds like you are doing great and having fun along the way. Enjoy. Cheers.
