    @rickM...spot on! I did not have to follow any presurgery diet. Yeah enlarged liver but he worked around it! Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app

    Intermittent Fasting

    Gee...your perspective from the lab is nothing like what the nutritionist says. She is supported by a group of surgeons and endos and they hang on twitter under #obsmuk ...i think. They have been pointing to recent research that clearly supports IF. i dont know what you do in the lab but does it deal with nutrition? Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app

    There is some research (positive) on twitter re IF i would spell it out. Posted by bariatric surgeons. Im chicken to try it. Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app
  12. @jess9395 i was making a joke.
  13. If stomach stretching is a myth, perhaps those of us who have regained some can be reimagined as mythical beasts. The make up woukd take all day. ...
  14. Fall bsck...not call back....
  15. Ana92212...thats the crux of the matter there. It is my belief that we call back into old habits no matter how long out we are from the surgery . Between reading about the "myth" of stretching, the "moral failure " of the individual to retain new eating behaviors so as to maintain the loss, the statistics docs post about followup, the shame of being overweight that we carried all our lives, the microbiota [SIBO] and supplements ....we really don't have any definitive data that helps us resolve the main issue of why we get to a point where only surgery saves us. I've been the whole route. I don't have answers. All I know is that it is NOT a moral failing that makes us fat and there is nothing virtuous about going for the surgery. But knowing this and believing it are two different animals. We get to try and that should be enough. Ultimately life happens. Good luck to all those who are still in the planning stages, the honeymoon years, the horrible ouch i gained, I will restart it , etc. That's all we can hope for: good luck.
  16. Hope it remains this way for you! Good luck Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app
  17. Oh...well, I'm deaf and the video is captioned, so I read it instead of watched it. Good point. Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app
  18. What do u mean when u ask what I read after you posted that link and I said i read it? Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app
  19. I did read it and thanked you. I disagree about food choices being the only culprit. My experience is different. Ok? Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app
  20. Maybe don't call it stomach stretching but something DOES change and we do gain after a few years. The surgery is not a permanent cure for whatever caused us to reach our highest weights. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not being truthful OR is the exception that proves the rule (which we all want to be). I wouldn't let that stop me from going for it, though.
  21. Holy cow. That makes more sense than holistic doc mumbo jumbo SIBO theories. Huh! But I do this mostly...but am not gaining quickly....lots to think about. Thank you! Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app

    Cut Calories and Excercise and no weight loss

    That IS frustrating. I don't think You ve lost enough since the surgery. Does your doc do follow-up visits? Has s/he noticed? I would definitely ask for for another meeting and a meeting with the nutritionist. This is weird.
  23. I don't like the patch (it falls off) and we do, too, have some malabsorption issues. Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app
  24. Thanks for engaging in this but I am experiencing SO MUCH PAIN with these thoughts that intrude after I acknowledge the feeling. I tried doing EMDR on myself just now in the car. I get frantic: I can't possibly take one more step without dissolving into a bowl of quivering jello mush. I think we call it discomfort so we aren't tossed into a Looney bin...to be locked away and medicated beyond pain. Food brings instant relief for the 5 min I indulge. There HAS to be a better way.
