Miss ash i was completely the same. I was so excited leading up to the surgery but a few days before the fear set in. This may sound super dooper weird to some people but the way i relaxed and was able to sleep was to watch "dr pimple pooper" on youtube. Lol. I dont know how i stumbled across the clips but they really relaxed me while grossing me out! It will be over before you know it and itss sooooo worth it. Goodluck
Week 13 post op loss .6kg Start weight 142kg Current weight 109.2kg Total loss 32.8kg (in 18 weeks) (14.9kgs was lost on 5 weeks opti, 17.9kg since sleeve) Im happy there is a loss but I cant help but feel like im doing somthing wrong as the drops have been small for a few weeks. Am i eating to much? Am i eating the wrong things? Snacking more than i should? These are all the thoughts that repeat in my head. Im meeting with my dietition tomorow so hopefully this will put my mind at ease.
Hi ash, My only advice after being on 5 weeks opti myself is to stay busy. If you feel hunger kicking in occupy yourself with somthing else. Thats what got me through. And as ironman said, 1 day at a time
Oh mandy, i can actually relate to that feeling very well, similar thing happend to me with my original lap band many years ago.. sending you my thoughts. And its ok to be frustrated, just keep in mind it will happen so stay positive
Week 12 post op loss .7kg Start weight 142kg Current weight 109.8g Total loss 32.2kg (in 17 weeks) (14.9kgs was lost on 5 weeks opti, 17.3kg since sleeve) Moving slowly again this week. Ive noticed a pattern of stalling at this stage of the month. But i hit under 110kg!!!
Week 11 post op loss .3kg Start weight 142kg Current weight 110.5g Total loss 31.5kg (in 16 weeks) (14.9kgs was lost on 5 weeks opti, 16.6kg since sleeve) Less than usual this week but its still a loss! Plus im not sure what happened to my scale last week as it was a big drop so in my head im counting some of that loss to this week.
