Six weeks out
Oct 27, 2010
I am six weeks out and have lost 30 pounds. I have found that my weight loss is a little bit yo-yo. I lose a pound, go up a half pound, lose another pound, go up a pound and a half, etc. Overall, it's a downward movement. I am just now finally beginning to feel normal, meaning I can move, sleep on my side, roll over without sitting up first, and I am not TIRED all the time. I actually have a little energy after work now, last week I still wanted to go straight to bed after work.
I am starting to see a difference in my clothes, but I still feel fat even though I know I am losing weight. I think (hope) this will one day pass because I really want to feel skinny. I am cold most of the time, but I expected that. It has been one of the topics on the boards. We all get a little more sensitive to cold.
I noticed after losing just 20 pounds that I can walk up the stairs without hearing my joints crack! Now that is a great developement!
So far, no complications. I can't eat much, still at 1/4 to 1/2 cups, and I can't eat 3 meals. I do well eating one meal, and maybe a bite or two for breakfast and dinner. I just don't feel like eating when I get up, so on work days I try to get a protein shake in first thing, and the same for dinner. I just don't want to eat and if I try to force myself, I feel bad. My pouch doesn't like being pushed! Kylie at Sac Bai said not to worr too much about how much I eat right now, make it healthy, and focus on proten and water, with my suppliements.
