Hi Everyone!! Happy Mother's Day.
Next week I will be 6 months post-op. To date, I have lost 70 pounds. I am very proud of that number, but majority of my weight loss happened within the first 4 months. For almost two months now, the scale has not moved. I try not to get discouraged, but its just SUCKS!!! What makes matters worse is that I am working out daily, which I started three months ago, and still, the most I continue to drop is about 5 months in a given month. Its just hard to hang in there. I eat a very clean diet, still sticking to the basics of the protein first, tons of H20, no sugar, and getting my sleep too. I eat very clean and healthy, and very careful about what I put in my body. But my body is just fighting me so much. I actually cried in bed like a big baby a month ago, because I forced myself not weight myself and just work out...and still, a week later, the numbers have stayed the same.
I need to know two things...first, WTF is happening (why me?), and second, is 70 pounds normal to lose, or is that small compared to what most can lose (I have 130 to lose altogether).
