How's our May oppers getting on this week?

Has anyone else found the heat wave crap for weight loss on the scales? Could it be water retention? :(

I've been out clothes shopping loads and love love love what I've bought but my bank balance doesn't eek! :p

Hope everyone is enjoying the sun xxx

Hey Banana, I'm doing really good thanks. I really struggle to get water in, despite it being so hot, so yes, I'm retaining water too. They tell you to sip lots, but I drink a lot for 10 minutes or so, then get stuck into work and forget to drink.

Me too Terrilou, I'm trying to get more fluids into me.

I've stocked up on all the NAS flavours you could think of and still only manage just over 1lt a day :( x

Hi guys, im the same with the fluids, most days it's 1 litre but trying to push it to 1.5l

Im struggling in this heat! The weight loss has slowed but im not too worried, I have gone down another dress size down to 18 - started off a 24 so im well happy! Im trying not to buy too many clothes though as it will be winter soon and il never be able to wear the summer clothes again so abit of a waste of money.

I bought a size 20 top 2 weeks ago and it's already loose on me so im just gonna try and muddle through with what ive got even though there are so many things I could buy now! Ive got a fair few bits of winter clothes in size 18 and 16 from a good few years ago that im really glad I kept as they will see me through the winter now.

Im really pleased the sickness seems to be subsiding so fingers crossed im over the worst now.

Nice to hear yr feeling bit brighter dan, there is nothing worse than feeling sick constantly. Bariatric nurse called me on Monday to follow up from my vitamin infusions on Friday and Saturday, Mr Clarke wanted to make sure symptoms had gone. They are a great team at treliske and I can't fault them. hope everyone else is getting on ok. X

How's our May oppers now? Some are and some are almost 3 months out!! I had a huge wardrobe clearout at the weekend. Took my old rags to the cash-for-clothes, thought why not! I found the bags quite heavy when lifting them to my car, only to find out that they weighed 11kilos. I've now lost 29 kilos or thereabouts and wonder how the hell I carried that physically as extra weight! Hope everyone is good :) xx

I'm plodding along. I too had a clear out of my wardrobe. Feels good getting rid of the bigger sizes!! Gonna sort through and put some on eBay to try and cover cost of the few new items I have treated myself too. X

Hi all, I'll be 3 months out on the 15th. When I got weighed on Tuesday evening, I'd lost 3.5 stones since the op. 7 stones 3.5 lbs from my heaviest in June 2013. Feeling really good. Wearing size 18 - 20 as opposed to the 26 - 28 a few months ago. :D

Oh my Gosh, thank you for that. Nobody has ever said that of me. That makes me feel great, thank you. How are you feeling now since your op? The choice I made for this op is the best one I've ever made, hopefully you're the same. xx

Hello May Oppers!!

How's everyone getting on? I've never smiled so much as I have the past 5 months :) I'm now 5st 7 down and instead of dreading social occasions, it's hard to keep me in the house these days!!!

Has anyone else been experiencing the dreaded hair loss? That has been the only negative side effect of this surgery for me, but I honestly am counting my blessings that it's only hair loss. I've been shedding hair for about 2months now and really hope it will stop soon :(

Hope everyone is well and would love to hear your updates!!xxx
