  8. Betcha there are more slow losers than you think. You just don't hear of us among the I came home from the hospital, Un -water- logged, and losing 10 pounds a day!" They get all the press, not the pokey losers the rest of us are! And just because they do this well, it doesn't mean everything else is going perfect. Just keep on trying and know it is for your betterment you are doing this!

    Bring a pillow for when you leave. Your core muscles are going to be majorly sore for a week so it hurts to laugh, cough sneeze and go to the bathroom. So it helps to keep the pressure on your core with the pillow. When you get out take metamucil in the morning and smooth move tea at night. Otherwise you will have major constipation which is worse than the surgery. Whenever you cook anything acidic like tomatoes add baking soda. It will neutralize the acid. While in have them give you heated pads to go over your stomach. It helps.

    Lots of gas when I try to drink

    Walk around, sometimes the motion will free it up a little. And like prior poster, warm liquids and things help.😋👍😝

    Crystal Light Rustrations

    Because so many believe we need the jolt caffeine gives. Look at the those caffeine shot thingies they have at most every store and shop! Just a sign of ther times. Invest in some sugar-free syrups like Torani if you must, have you tried Mio?
  12. Hello! I am a young adult with the surgery date of june 5th. Does anyone have advice for parents or other family members to be set up to support you or take care of you right after the surgery? My family keeps asking me how they should prepare but I'm not sure what the to them.
  13. Oh darlin' it makes all the sense in the world. One of my heros, Well properly a heroine, reminded me when I admired things about her smoother weight journey , She has feet of clay just cause she's human too. Some of the things you can rectify, some you can't. But be glad you recognised some of the things you can fix. Why am I awake at 1:31AM? Because I woke up and made a snack for my son " Tomkitten" so named because I have Gmail that alluded to cats. I made bean soup with Turkey Ham in it earlier today. He announced it was edible but not HIS thing. Made me feel guilty so I went on strike for a few hours, then finally the guilt got to me. Made him small portion hash browns, sausage and eggs. See I still am not to the point we eat the same diet, the mashed up beans and soup broth satisfied me enough. Last time I tried eggs, even lightly scrambled, they came back up. Potatoes except for in thinner potato soup, don't do those anymore. So sometimes I growl I'm running a short order low- grade coffee Shoppe around here. It isn't that you didn't know,better, just got complacent and slid back into bad ways. Surgeons can give us our surgeries, we have to make them work. And like any addict, And that is what we all were, Food Addicts, it is so so easy to go back to where we once were. So decide to now do better this night or day, depending on whichever it is for you. Can you fix it all? Gee that remains to be seen, doesn't it? All you can is your own personal best yours may differ from mine, but you know what I mean. And remember we're still here for you, no matter what!, most of us have walked that path, one way or another. So buck up, buckaroo, do all you can to rectify your mess you are yourself into, sadder but wiser now. Once 2;30 comes I can take my bedtime meds as well as making sure Tomkitten has his. Some you can't take for an hour after eating, and maybe I'll take my liquid calcium, hard to space between vitamins and iron, mostly everything I take in except water has some vitamin content.. But I make it through, so will,you too. Ta Ta#

    April 2019 Surgeries!

    My surgery is on April 23rd. Two days... While I do trust my team of providers completely, I'm starting to get nervous. I'm a cash patient, so I didn't have to go through the mandatory things insurance makes you do. They did educated me but I never had to do support group classes. Came across this app on my own, and just wanna say I'm so happy I did. Reading everyone's posts and stories is very motivating. Would love and appreciate any advice.

    Post Op Weight Loss

    I am 13 days post op and I have lost 23 pounds don’t know if that is considered good with the surgery I had I mean it’s good for me cause I lost it but I had the duodenal switch surgery and just was wondering if I was doing ok with the amount of weight I’m loosing I do know some people that has had the bypass and lost 50 pounds the first month n a total of 75 in 2 months guess I want that type of success story but everyone is different
  17. So, I’m having trouble locating non-caffeine based crystal light. Any one have other drink mix solutions? I only use them to cut the taste of Premier Protein Water, but why oh why does everything have caffeine?

    Lots of gas when I try to drink

    My dr recommended gasx chewable. Some of the gas is from the surgery. It goes away after a few days. I’m Day 7 post op. If I gulp, it hurts. Really have to pace myself and sip, sip, sip.

    Need encouragement from slow losers

    Slow loser here. It’s very hard to have faith and believe it’s possible to hit goal weight. Im just taking it day by day and trying to maximize the honeymoon period.

    TMI question re. vomiting

    I’m 3 months out and never puked thank goodness.
  21. Well, I'm 3 years out RNY. I got down from surgery weight of 335 to 265, gained back to 300, there since then. I do not follow the rules at all. My fault. I was not a good candidate for WLS, but I slipped through. My surgeon, last I saw him, was very crass and kinda cruel so I wont go back. I have to make peace with that and go back but I'm deathly afraid. In therapy working on it. I failed because I knew what I was getting into and couldn't/wouldn't go with the program. I'm in a much better place now, and am reading for the umpteenth time the Agaston South Beach Diet that my surgeon puts all his patients on. I'm quite amazed at the damage I've done and am doing to my body and heart, etc. I've started cleaning my house of toxic foods and am trying to budget a proper shopping list. It's not easy, never expected it to be. I just didn't know I'd go so far from the right direction. I'm mad at myself. But I'm learning in therapy how to turn that into good energy and productive power. It's all up to me. It's all in my hands and that horrifies the crap out of me. But the facts I'm reading about proper diet/nutrition are scaring me into compliance. I'm excited but terrified to jump back on board. I've forgotten a lot. I hope this all makes sense.

    Post Op Weight Loss

    Yep, my weight loss doesn’t match up to others who did it roughly the same time. I’m older, lower starting weight and have a crappy metabolism. I have absolutely stuck to the plan though and lost over 35 pounds since 1/22. Is it earth shattering? No, but it’s not a race. This journey is for life

    Immediate Weight Loss

    If you really think about it, and I’m not being sarcastic, you couldn’t physically gain 5 pounds of fat in a week right? So it had to be fluid. Every person who panics about weight gain after surgery needs to remember that it’s not possible to gain fat if you’re not eating and if it’s that rapid (5-10 lbs in a week)

    Diabetic Results

    I was in metformin, glimperide and Lantus. I've had diabetes for 15 years or so. I'm now down to 10 units 9f lantus at night. I take glimeperide only if my breakfast or dinner bs is over 180. I'm pleased my numbers are in the 140 range and this morning was 121. They were terribly high the first month out.

    Diabetic Results

    I was type2 for 20yrs before gastric bypass July 2017. Nearly 2 yrs later I’m still on metformin. I’m down to 66kg (145lbs) from 98kg (198lbs). Getting rid of the diabetes was the main factor in having a gastric bypass procedure. Feeling disheartened, I’m vegetarian and therefore have beans and lentils (carbs) for my protein uptake. Anyone in the same situation?

    Immediate Weight Loss

    it's the fluids they give you in the hospital. I've gained up to 10 lbs after a surgery because of those. It'll be gone in a few days.
