    Goal Weight

    @denzel Thank you very much! I'm doing better than I ever imagined. I went from not leaving the house for two weeks at a time to being out daily. It feels so good to be out of the fog I was stuck in! I'm off my blood pressure meds and have lowered my anti depressants. Feeling great! ☺️

    Update

    Currently - 42kgs and feeling good! My joints are still sore but other than that I'm great. I still haven't got my period after 4 months. Had a blood test for my thyroid last week. Need to go back for the results. Doing a lot of walking, absolutely love winter! It's been - 2 in the mornings the last couple of days but my partner and I still get out there and do our morning weekend walk. Interesting to see come summer how I'll handle the heat now as I absolutely hate it. - Queenies.

    Goal Weight

    I'm pretty similar with @zaruse I'm 176cm and my surgeon suggested around 77 kilos as goal weight which would out in a healthy BMI. I'm aiming for 75kg but I will be happy at 80 also I think. Will have to wait and see. I had my surgery in March and I'm down - 42kg now.

    Alcohol

    Hi, I was sleeved in March. I had my first glass of wine at the end of May. That was after a 5 or 6 month break from alcohol. It was glorious haha! I haven't had any issues with alcohol thus far. I stick to wine or spirits on the rocks occasionally. Nothing carbonated anymore unfortunately.

    @LosingKAL Rescue cats are great! I volunteer in the Penrith area. Need another cat? Haha Happy Birthday for tomorrow! Are you on puree or soft foods? Yes, it's very exciting to see the numbers drop each week. I bought clothes for my birthday, can't go nuts but it's hard not to now. I am now in the smallest size in my favourite shop. It's funny, I got disappointed I won't be able to shop at my favourite store , I was like what now? Where do I shop now? Good luck with everything. @denzel Thank you! More than half way now, yay!

    @LosingKAL That's awesome! Well done. I didn't start feeling heaps different til about 25 onwards, noticing the differences much more anyway. I have stalled for the past two weeks and have gone up and down because it was my 30tj and my partners birthday too. Kind of just had a 'screw it' moment and had some birthday cake etc. Now I'm back into it! Wish you all the best. Yes, it's my cat rescue cat Naito! I'm a sucker for gingers, I'm marrying one too lol. I volunteer for a cat rescue and am loving it!

    Weak muscles

    Yes!! I had surgery in March 21st. I'm so sore!! My joints hurt and I just feel like an old lady. I'm only turning 30 this weekend! You know when you can wake up stiff in the morning etc? I feel like that all the time now. I am low in Magnesium and folate. I'm hoping it gets better soon. Glad you're feeling better with the exercises. What exercises are you doing to help it?

    Update

    78 days post surgery. I am 36.1kg down as of this morning. I am pretty damn happy with that! I was hoping to lose 30 kgs by my 30th Birthday on Sunday and I smashed it. Yay!

    Please help - buyers remorse

    Hi, I agree, you should definitely be seeing or at least ringing your surgeon. I've never had the band but I was sleeved on the 21st March so only a few days before you. I've only had issue a few times and I think it's because maybe eating too quickly without realising or not chewing enough. I've only seen my surgeon once and it was 1 month after surgery. He told me to slow down my eating even more, it's quite frustrating but take at least 20 - 25 mins to eat and chew, chew, chew. If you are doing all that and still issues then you really need a check up. - Queenies.

    Joint pain

    Hi all, Turns out I'm low in magnesium so that may be the issue. Also my folate is low so we'll see how I go with the vitamins. Hopefully it ends up helping with the pains. My 30th birthday is next month....surely my body isn't trying to tell me I'm getting old just yet. Haha :) 44 days post surgery now and 29.1kgs down. Feeling good otherwise. - Queenies.

    Joint pain

    Hi @denzel Thanks for the reply. I'm seeing my GP on Saturday for my blood results so I will run it by her. It's only come on in the last week and a half or so. I have finally started walking again and doing house work etc but only small walks, I did do an hr yesterday but I was sore before that and the small walks (half an hr) shouldn't be hurting my shoulder joints and leg joints anyway (much easier to do being 27.5kgs ligther) See what she says, maybe my blood results can also shed some light on it, who knows. Definitely doing less post-op than I was pre-op. That's only because I've been having all these dizzy spells, they stopped for about a week or so and now I'm starting to get dizzy again but not as bad. Frustrating, as I was feeling great last week and happy being able to do things again. - Queenie.

    Joint pain

    Hi everyone, Just wondering if it's normal to experience joint pains after sleeve surgery. I am 5 weeks post op and have only just started feeling better and being able to move like walking, doing house work etc because I was dealing with dizzy spells due to low BP. I have noticed though that my leg joints hurt when walking, my shoulders are sore and the back of them. Sore back sometimes too. I assume it's because of rapid weight loss and the ligaments haven't caught up with the weight loss kinda thing and my muscles are just sore. Let me know what you have experienced. Thanks, - Queenies.

    @Katieapoos I am pretty proud of myself. It was such a hard thing for me to go through with it all and well.. I did it! I can imagine how easy it would be to forget to eat and drink! Maybe you need to set a watch alarm or a reminder. I have been taking berocca daily and that seems to help me for the moment. I hope you're super happy with your weight loss thus far too. - Queenies.
