  1. Past hour
  2. Mine is similar with a corollary of allowed extras. Photo of it follows.
  3. I use saccharin - sweet n low. But I am going to try stevia blend with erythritol (sugar alcohol). Also I am old - I remember Funny Face (koolaid type) drink mix and it was sweetened w cyclamates - the US caved to errant reasearch and the sugar industry and banned cyclamates - but you can order it from Canada under Sugar Twin brand name. Many many countries never banned its use. I intend to order some.
  4. @Phobia42 I have a GREAT hand mixer, a Kitchenade w 9 speeds and low is super low.
  5. Yesterday
  6. Every program is different and this is something you should talk to your doctor about. The program I used, did not want you further away than a 4 hour drive for the first 3 months and I did have to go see my surgeon a couple of weeks after surgery. After that it was a nurse practitioner that I saw at 3, 6 and 12 months.
  7. For sure! I completely get, it always feels like the weight is coming off so slowly. I’m doing really well, feeling a lot better and I’m going on 9 months post op. I’ve lost a little over 100 pounds and have been really working out a lot and trying to stay active while eating right.
  8. Well you are on the ball field we are this crap is getting old and I don't get full off it. I am past the two tablespoons of oatmeal I cal eat like 4 tablespoon and still not really full maybe I am not realizing I am full.
  9. I’ve always watched the show. But now that i’m about to have the bypass, I watch it with more interest. I find it informative, especially what NOT to do. 😂.
  10. The staff can be tricky but they wear masks and gloves. I worry more about hospital-borne staph infections. Staphylococcus aureus is the hospital nightmare!
  11. Congratulations on your success. Just reaching our small goals is so refreshing. I've set goal after goal and when I reach one I am surprised, like I did it. Keep striving Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using BariatricPal mobile app
  12. Hello! I’m doing ok, it’s up and down but I’m feeling better as I lose pounds. It never seems fast enough but I keep that in perspective! How are you doing?
  13. Sage advice from the many blogs and vlogs I've been sifting through.
  14. Hope all is going well Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using BariatricPal mobile app
  15. Yeah, one formerly morbidly obese criminal lawyer from North Carolina says in his YouTube series, "If you can't face the constant attention of comments glorifying your achievement in halving your body mass, you might need counselling." He refers to empathising with celebrities who are stopped constantly by adoring fans. He says people mean well and most really want to express admiration for one's weight loss but that it grates by the third or fourth person every time you go to the shops or get to your employer's car-park. I'll have to think about this and my eventual reaction to it, I guess.
  16. 257 today 9/21
  17. How is pre-op Diet going? Mine is strict three shakes a day! Have lost 12 pounds in first four days!
  18. I am having gastric sleeve done Oct. 3rd. Previously had band, so many complications, leaking, tube breakage, tubing enstrngking bowel, on and on. Band was removed with open surgery vs. Laparoscopic and sleeve the same. I hav many many adhesions! Any experience with open surgery? Thanks
  19. No downside to being awkward! How was your surgery? How are you doing now? Sent from my SM-G950U using BariatricPal mobile app
  20. That rings true from other anecdotes I've read or listened to. There's one particular man in my town (there were two but the other one died last Sunday) that has fat shamed me and slagged off at me and other obese people for at least 20 years. He's dying a slow death at the moment from a mix of lifestyle illnesses taking over his body and slowly killing him. (The pace of slow is picking up for him.) My joy will be to outlive him. If he makes it through the next 12-18 months and my WLS follows a typical path, I hope to enjoy saying to him, "Stop whingeing, princess."
  21. We are on the same boat! Lol My surgery was on Tuesday the 19 and I'm pretty much on that same rollercoaster, broth, popsicle, water, Crystal light waters, protein shake etc... I'm mean is a bit boring but luckily I'm not feeling hungry! I was earlier craving some real food! But that was just a moment! Lol good luck
  22. Head hungry or head crazy. Sound like you are has a lot going on. Maybe focus on one thing at a time will give you some relief.
