  1. Last week I was 231 Today I weighed 224.4 I'm so excited and happy to see the scale moving.
  2. Well I'm 32 5'2 and my highest weight was 270.2 on July 2nd 2012. I had surgery on Aug 1st weighed 254.5. Today I'm 229. It hasn't been easy or as fast as it fantasized it would be. It takes a lot of hard work. I had thoughts like yours what if it doesn't work for me. But the truth is, I will work if you work it. I have to make sure I get my Protein, Water and exercise in every day. It's just a way of life now I depend on it like I do air, shelter and love. I know it's nerve wreaking but it will be here and gone soon enough. Then you'll have a new set of problems. Like an i a slow loser?
  3. I'm only weighing in once a week so this Wednesday I was 231.

    New To Vst...

    I have kaiser and my surgery was with dr. Casillas in West los angeles. It's a long process but we'll worth the wait because as long as your pcp recommends you, you're approved for the surgery.

  13. No leak test done after surgery. I didn't know to ask if one was done surgery. Look up what the leak symptoms are if you are worried. At this point you won't feel full yet. Try to serve yourself 4-6 oz of your puree.
  14. Congrats lisa thanks for everything you do.

    20 Lbs In 10 Days On Preop Diet?

    My doctor required 15 in about 3 weeks I had only lost 11.4 pounds, I was so nervous going to my preop appointment, I thought for sure he is going to cancel. He was very pleased to see that I gave it my best effort. Do the best you can. Go to a gym or do an exercise video something I was working out 2-3 hours a day. You can do this!!!!

    Is This Weird ?

    Pre Op Nerves :-/

    It's normal to be nervous, it means you know what you are getting into. I'm 8 days post op, just getting done with the healing process. The worst part was the gas in my chest that was gone within 12 hours of surgery, I slept most of the time. You will be fine.

    Thoughts On Unjury?

    I'm 7 days post op and besides the Isopure my unflavored unjury protein is an essential part of my diet. I add it to my oatmeal, jello, pudding, chicken broth and cream soups. It doesn't taste any different, but it makes the jello cloudy but I feel better knowing I'm getting that extra protein in. I'm getting ready to order a 2nd can.
