Mini Gastric Bypass on 04/26/17
Topic: RE: Anyone been denied WLS by a MX Surgeon Cuz BMI over 50?

At first I was going to do the sleeve, but had done some research and reading. Was worried that if I did the sleeve, I'd have to down the road have a revision done, because I wouldn't loose enough of the weight. I'm over 400 lbs and my bmi is 64. I need to loose a lot of weight. Everything I was hearing from past sleeve patients kind of turned me off to it and I've decided to do the mini gastric bypass. My doctor thought I would be most successful doing the MGB.

I noticed on your surgery type it says "mini gastric bypass". Why did you decide to go that route?

It might be because your surgery is longer or more complicated.

 

My BMI was 60, I was not required to lose any weight pre-op. The only pre-op diet I had was the liver shrinking diet.

 

I had the sleeve. I also had my surgery in the US.

Hello everyone!

This morning marks 3 months since my surgery. (this is where I admit to disliking the word "surgiversary", I just find it weird) 

I'm feeling strong, I feel an increase in my confidence, my energy, my mood... the list goes on. This mornings weigh in was my lowest to date and puts me at 46.8 lbs lost post op. There have been so many great NSVs so far but I think the thing that effects me most is just feeling like I take up less space in the world. In car seats, at the movies, on the couch or in a crowd, I'm just so much less self conscious and it's nice to just live without thinking and worrying about all the little things that used to fill my brain. 

This week I added another 71 miles to my virtual walk and I have really made daily exercise a priority. I'm enjoying it for physical and mental reasons. I feel stronger physically and mentally it has given me more 'me time', more time to think and I come back energized and ready to focus. I backed off on the Zumba a bit this week but added more resistance training. I enjoy feeling like I have options and going forward the variety will make me more likely to stick with it. 

HW- 386

LW- 267.4

TW- 263.0

I was reflecting back this morning and realized that since I got serious about losing weight (this time) just after the long weekend in July I'm down 123 lbs... in less than 8 months. It made me quite emotional. It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day and the scale frustrations, and adjusting to the new normal but we all need to stop once in awhile and take an impartial look at what we're achieving. Be proud of yourselves. I'm proud of me. We are accomplishing some amazing things.

Have a great week everyone!!

Christine

Glad to hear that you're enjoying and benefiting from the Fitbit, I know it has had a huge influence on my daily activity level.

It's awesome that you're still having such significant weekly losses too! Congrats!
