    Hi bluiz77,
    I saw a post from 12/12 that you posted about a low BMI, I started out at 187 pounds on my surgery day with a BMI of just 35. I didn't tell anyone about my surgery because I knew I would get the same type of comments, "your not fat enough", "you should just eat less,and exercise more" etc... They have not lived in my shoes for the last 20 years, been there ,did that, tried everything. You know the story. Anyway I lost 20 lbs the first month too, but it slows way down from there. I have lost 56 poundsin 6 months with just 10 more pounds to go. I don't mind now though, (it was difficult sometimes during the stalls, since I was doing everything right) because I feeling fantastic and healthy and I don't look too bad either!
    So just wanted to give you a heads up for when the stalls come, don't get discouraged, starting out at a lower weight than many of our sleevers, we wont/didn't have the same big losses month after month. But be patient it will come of soon enough. No other Diet has worked as well as this sleeve, so just keep that in your mind and you will continue to rock your sleeve!!!

    Thank you! I guess I should start exercising now, LOL. I'm sure it would go faster and I am in a stall right now (the three month one). Besides, I'm starting to become less firm. I was always a 'firm' fat chick.

checking in 8 months out.

by bluiz77 on 11-16-2013 at 11:08 PM
I haven't posted in a long time but do sign on and read others posts frequently. There are a ton of new faces.
So my update is I am 2 pounds away from goal the weight loss is very very slow now but I am ok with it. I am finally getting comfortable in my own skin and looking at the new woman in the mirror. I think I would already be at goal by now but I had another surgery 6 weeks ago and the doctors orders were to be a couch princess so that meant no exercise. Shopping is very fun now, I

I am 5 months out today, and what a journey.

by bluiz77 on 08-11-2013 at 11:22 PM
Today marks 5 months since I had my surgery. I have been pretty happy with my results.I have went from 210 to 143 (193 on surgery day). I started in a 14/16 and am now 5/7.
I have a lot more energy and never want to be in the house.
The weightloss has slowed way down some of it is bad choices and I believe some of it is because I am pretty close to goal. I am having a hard time with carb cravings so this week I am going back to all protein to see if that helps. My body is not as firm

4 months out and monthly pic

by bluiz77 on 07-12-2013 at 10:54 PM
Yesterday marked 4 months out from surgery. I have to say I still love my sleeve. I have went from 210 to 148 all together and 193 to 148 since surgery. I have also went from a size 14 to a 6. This last month I stalled and only lost 5 pounds but I have learned stalls are my fault I started snacking which I was told not to and now I know why. I will take the 5 pound loss any day over gaining but I know I could have done better. I have lost 2 pounds just since this Monday by not snacking and tracking

Another NSV!

by bluiz77 on 07-03-2013 at 01:57 PM
I went to the track at the school by my house on Monday and was able to run a little over half of a lap (I have NEVER been a runner) and when I got home I told my husband my goal is to be able to run an entire lap without stopping by the end of the summer.
Well guess what yesterday I did an entire lap running without having to stop!!! I walked the next lap and ran one more entire lap just to make sure I was NOT dreaming! Lol My new goal for the end of summer is to be able to run a mile without
