    I know what you mean about life being busy, it's summer, it's beautiful out. By the way my email is the best way to reach me teri1105@icloud.Com
    So I think (hope) that I might be maintaining now. It's only been a few days of my weight not changing but it's the longest I've gone so far without loosing (since the stall )
    I'm 145 and I'm happy. I'm not sweaty, it's great. I'll post an update soon. Maybe even tonight :-) you are doing great and looking great!!!

    When did you start mixing up the Premier protein shakes by adding other ingredients? I am three weeks out today and starting to think of ways to be ready to add some variety to my morning protein drink. I used to make morning smoothies all the time but Ive read to be careful adding too many "greens" and such. I used to add Chia seeds too, do you ever use that or is it too rough on the new tummy?

    Hello! How are you doing?

    Hello my friend, just starring to feel a little better to start responding. I'm thankful that I made it through its was just like you said. However, I have so many doubts, I want to eat something. But I've been good and trying to follow doctor instructions doing what is asked. Having a hard time remembering to sip every 15 minutes so hope that I don't dehydrate myself. This is hard, no really the only thing that I can say that I've done correctly is walking, I'm loving that and its keeping my head up. I didn't want you worrying about me so wanted to send this quick message and thank you again for all that you did and said to keep me calm. Really meant a lot to me, and it really helped me get through. I will check in with you later this weekend, going to take another pill the growling, and pain is too much.

7 1/2 month check in: good and bad numbers

by didishae on 10-07-2015 at 01:50 PM
I usually just check in once a month and give an update on progress but I thought I would go ahead and share my numbers from my most recent doctor's appointment.

About a week ago I had my "6 month" checkup with my surgeon's office. Yes, we were all behind. Scheduling conflicts and being busy on both my end and theirs meant I was almost a month and a half late but oh well, no harm done. I was very happy with most of my numbers. In fact, they seemed very impressed by my progress.

7 month check in

by didishae on 09-17-2015 at 07:45 PM
Well, tomorrow marks 7 months since I had the gastric sleeve and just as I've said in my all other updates, I'm doing great!

Officially down 85 lbs now. That's 5 lbs in the last month, which I'm totally happy with. Yes, my weight loss has slowed down a lot but gosh, how can I complain about losing another 5 lbs?! I'm now at 157, which means I am getting really close to goal. I set 140 as my goal because that means I will officially be in the normal weight range for my height (according

6 Month Update with progress pics

by didishae on 08-18-2015 at 04:31 PM
So I posted a few days ago that I was going to do a few days of liquids to try to reach my goal of losing 80 lbs by my 6 month "surgerversary". I had kind of stalled around 77 lbs lost for a while. Anyway, the 3 days of liquids did the trick! Yesterday I had officially reached the 80 lbs mark. Very happy with that. My final goal is to lose around a hundred pounds so to be very close to that now is unbelievable. Of course, that number was an estimate. I have no real clue where I'll end

Almost 6 months and determined to reach my goal

by didishae on 08-14-2015 at 12:29 PM
Everyone tells you to enjoy the "honeymoon phase", the 3 or 4 months after surgery because that is when you will lose most of your weight. Well, I can testify that, at least from me, they were absolutely correct.

I am currently sitting at 165 lbs, a total of 77 lbs lost for me. I can't be disappointed in that because it feels WONDERFUL to be at this weight. I feel better than I have in a very long time. I finally went shopping for some nice clothes and I can't begin to

5 Month Update: Breaking through a stall

by didishae on 07-17-2015 at 12:38 PM
Today marks 5 months for me since surgery. In that time I have lost 71 lbs. Amazing!!! Of course, most of it was lost in the first few months and I have definitely slowed down on weight loss but I think so far I'm okay with that.. as long as the weight loss doesn't stop completely until I reach goal.

First of all, let me focus on the positive: I feel FANTASTIC. Honestly, I had forgotten what it was like to NOT be carrying around so much extra weight. Before the surgery, my body hurt
