following: Stevens Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Diet
performance: losing 1.8 lb a week

I've been up and down the diet scale all my life. My baby pictures show a HUGE baby but I was slender up until my mid teens when the weight battle began. In the past two decades I've lost my entire excess weight twice, but I regained it both times. I hit my top weight of 258 in February of 2013, and for a 5'3" woman, that was extreme. It was at that time I decided to have the bariatric sleeve gastrectomy. I had to delay the surgery until December, and as of Feb 4, 2014, have lost almost 50 lb. (some before the surgery). My main problem right now is getting in my water, since I feel full all the time, but I don't regret the surgery at all. It is changing how I look at food for the first time in my life, which I believe will prevent me from regaining once I've lost the weight.

Right weight for you body
It is true that they recommend weight-bearing exercise for older women at risk for osteoperosis in order to increase their bone density and therefore minimize the chance for breakage. However, I'm not sure that bone density is a real variable in how much you weigh. The heavier you are, the more bone dense you are, but it does not really affect the number on the scale unless you are just trying to find out the total weight of tissue without bone.

Right weight for you body
Yes, don't go by a number as to what you should eventually weigh. As long as you are mobile, healthy, and happy with how you look, you're okay. I always weighed more than people thought because I was so muscular...they were always surprised when they found out. I was always at the top range for my height. I'd love to be there plan on it within the next couple of months.

Well, my weight loss has slowed down. Trying to get the last 4 lb. off so I can say I've lost 100 I just bought a Wii with the Fit platform and CD, along with the Jillian CD. I'm hoping this will help motivate me to get up and move. It's gonna be difficult until I get this hernia taken care of, so I have to take it easy until then. I'll let you all know how it is!
