    pouch reset

    WTG girl! Now I can't wait for Monday again. We're goin to the river this weekend, so I know it's pointless to start mine again, but I too have taken up a protein drink (full one) each day. So far since surgery last Thursday night I lost 7 of the 8lbs of fluid I gained from the IV. That's the quickest to lose that kind of weight in my life. So am hopeful!

    Pretty much! I am hitting 98-105g of protein eating this. Not bothering tracking carbs because I know there's virtually none in all of those things.

    What complications have you lot had

    All good responses above. I had the same reaction after visiting some bariatric forums. It’s normal to worry and stress over surgery procedures. There are risks with ANY type of surgery. Talk to your surgeon about the statistics for complications. Know that your team will take good care of you. Your pain will be managed with medication. I’m five years out. No complications.

    Ok, got it, TY for sharing!!! Sounds awesome! So maybe 600ish cals and loads of protein and low carbs?

    It would be great to lose my appetite. It never happened after my sleeve surgery.

    =p I have a soy protein isolate shake for breakfast, a light and fit greek yogurt for a snack (if I need one), a hard boiled egg for lunch, a soy protein isolate shake for afternoon snack, and cottage cheese/hardboiled egg for dinner. I randomly munch on cherry tomatoes/blueberries too occasionally.

    ❤My Revision Story❤

    Thank you. I need all of the support and encouragement I can get. I did the bravo test a few weeks back and my acid levels are off the charts.
  9. Ok, last one for today. This is SO true! Unbelievable but it really works!

    The Maintenance Thread

    I’m actually 5.3 1/2. I always round up because I thought I was 5’4” my entire life! I have an athletic build and tend to look less than I weigh, at least that was the case before I gained weight over the past 10 years. I’m not really stuck on a number, I’m just getting my head in the right place.

    Awesomely. I lost a little over 5lbs last week and felt amazing. I am essentially sticking to my modified diet indefinitely. I am actually getting MORE protein now than I did before because I brought back the dreaded protein shakes (which actually taste fine, lol). I still enjoy a "regular" bariatric diet on the weekends, but for the most part I am sticking to this new thing I have going on during the work week. I definitely feel full so much quicker - even cottage cheese is difficult to eat at a full 8oz like I was before.

    Concern questions for post-op

    Thank you! There is hope for me! My final appearance is such a concern for me. Maybe because I’m a “little disfigured” now. I’m 49 and will turn 50 on 8/31. My surgeon is also aware of my concerns and he completely understands them also. Which is a great feeling. He encouraged me to start all this “training”. He said it’s like training for a triathlon, train till your ready! I just more concerned after reading some of the concerns here and other support groups on Facebook. You all helped me to refocus on the prize. Thank you. Congratulations on your weight loss journey. 😊

    Gallbladder surgery

    I had my gallbladder out in January. No exercise for two weeks, and then just avoid any core work for another 2-3 weeks. PS I feel your pain. I go to the gym 6 days a week and I'm having plastics in November and won't be able to go for a monthhhh. NOOOOOOOOO

    Hey girl, how's the reset going? I had to stop mine due to a little med. hiccup, and plan on maybe starting back on it on Monday coming up.

    I saw this on Facebook and had to share 😊 Praying that you all have a wonderful day!

    What complications have you lot had

    I had three complications - a marginal ulcer formed one week out and I was on medicine for 12 weeks to heal it. Then my gallbladder went to hell 2 months out and they also found a hernia while they were in there. It happens. It's generally not a big deal and all 3 of the issues were resolved with time. Nothing that couldn't be fixed. Just be aware of how you feel and speak up if anything feels off. Definitely wouldn't change my mind had I known I would have gotten those complications.
