Hi everyone!

It has been a long time since I posted on here so get ready for a LONG post! So here's an update on my new life since surgery. I had my surgery in June 2014. I started at 322 and my surgeon's goal for me was 180. My own goal for my

So nearly every time I eat I still get tons of gas in my chest. It lasts for a couple hours after every meal. I thought that once I was farther out this would subside. Does anyone else who is at my stage still have issues like this?  I've been off pril

Current weight: 182 lbs!!!!  When I started my journey I gave myself a goal of 165 lbs.  While losing weight I revised it to 175.  Last night I was looking myself in the mirror and thought 170 would be better.  I'm still a size 14/16 and I'm so close t

I've somehow convinced myself that I'm gaining weight. I look in the mirror and my hips look bigger and my stomach looks bigger and pretty much everything looks bigger.

But I weigh myself every day and the scale always fluctuates the same 2-3

I would like to start this post off by stating that this is a rant and a means of getting something off my chest.  This is a hot topic around here and I don't wanna start a debate or argument.  I just don't have any one to talk to about this that under

Am I the only woman with this odd pattern?

I always lose weight right before my period.  I'm talking for like 3 days I'll lose 1-2 lbs PER DAY and then my period will come the next and the weight loss stops.  What's odd is that after it's over

Desperate times... - Call for desperate measures!  In order to get my weight loss moving again I've resorted to a Pre-Op diet sort of lifestyle.   Breakfast: Protein ShakeLunch: Protein ShakeDinner: 4...

My best friend has been dieting and losing weight for about 5 months.  In that time she's lost about 60 pounds (she has not had WLS).  She has stuck to a similar nutrition plan as me (obviously with larger meals and more calories).  She does a low carb

Who created this theory? I have seen many people on this forum state that weight loss is 95% nutrition and 5% exercise. Since when? We have been told for years by our doctors, nutritionists, personal trainers, health magazines

My surgery date was  7/30/14
By January I had lost 100 pounds (5 months)
Since then I've only lost 22 pounds. 

I think I've made a few posts about being frustrated in the last couple months already so this is more of a rant.

Not losing any weight - I'm starting to come to realize that I'm just not meant to be skinny.  Every time I've ever lost weight my body would literally stop losing at around the 200 lb mark and I'd just m...

I feel very full right now.  I just ate 5 (baked) chicken wings.  I didn't weigh them for ounces because obviously I wouldn't get an accurate number with the bone and who peels off all the chicken from wings prior to eating them? Lame excuse, I know, b

Frustrated - I can't seem to get out of the 200's.  I seem to hover between 208-210.  I've been killing myself the last 3 weeks doing Beach Body's "21 Day Fix" workout program and I haven't mad...
