9wks post op!

Well the weight is still falling off...im feeling amazing. I do suffer from foaming. Which sucks. But i have to remember to always eat slowly or this will happen! But anywho. Im ending my 9th week. And im 225lbs!!!! Im so darn happy!!!!
You look great, I wanna keep my butt! So far you are the only person on here that I see that is built similar to me. I have always carried my weight below the navel also. At one point I was 38 in the waist and 54 in the hips ( yeah husband loved it) now its just outta control. But you are beautiful, great job!

In feb 2014 i weighed in at 298. In march 2014 the 5th was the day of my surgery and i weighed in at 275. I was on all liquids all the way till day of surgery....only gaterade diet iced tea and protien shakes.... i didnt really stick to the meal plan i ate off a few times since surgery but a cookie never killed anyone...loo. as of today i am 197lbs.....so i have lost 101 since feb. And 77lbs since day of surgery.... i feel great! I mainly drink 3-4 premier protien shakes a day and atkins shakes are awesome!!! And i eat banana oatmeal made with full whole milk i can get 2'or 3meals out of it depends on the day. And i eat lots of shrimps...4max. My belly wont hold much. And i dont eat stuff highin carbs like crackers or pretzel because my tummy doesnt like it...i also cant eat steak and potatoes are rough on me.... hope this helps u doll....oh wait one more thing... u will get super constipated i suggest miralax and milk of magnisam it helps. And prune juice.....

Wow that's great, u was just sitting here thinking when will I see my big loss, some days I feel full all day and others I wake up starving. I woke up today thinking about every food allowed to eat. I have to remember that this is a process and my biggest problem is not being patient. I'm so glad you guys are here to show your progress, it really keeps me focused, great job
