  1. I became lactose intolerant after surgery. In the last month (10 mos post-op)I started having dairy with NO problems. Hang in there hopefully it will only be temporary. Good luck
  2. Your positive attitude is what will pull you through this time. Congratulations on your weight loss! Good-luck with your new adventures of a beautiful skinny single lady looking for someone who DESERVES to be with you and will share your love for the outdoors and most importantly love you forever!

    No longer obese!

    Congratulations! It is a wonderful feeling to see that change! Normal is just right around the corner!
  7. I also became Lactose Intolerant. It was miserable until I finally figured it out! I am now almost 8 months out and this past week I had a yogurt parfait from Subway, cottage cheese and cheddar cheese without any problems. I heard that this could be temporary so that is why I tried these foods. I only try one dairy a day. Unjury protein was the only thing my stomach could tolerate. I took a sip of a milk shake from In and Out and it did not take long before I knew that was just too much for my stomach! Hopefully yours will only be temporary! Good luck
  8. Oh my so sorry for your mom. Be proud of your success and being there to help your mom! At least your mom is in the hospital and is in good hands. Sending you hugs and positive thoughts. Keep us posted on your mom.

    Really Tired

    I went through that as well. My doctor did a complete vitamin blood test on me and my b12 was low, so I now go in once a month for shots and my doctor also recommended that I take B complex pills as well. Make sure you are staying hydrated as well, because that will also drain you if your not. Good luck!

    Vomitted yellow

    I agree with everyone else "Bile". It happened to me several times, I was so used to gulping ice cold water! Took awhile but I can now gulp again, just not as big as before!

    is this normal?

    Every body is different. On your next visit ask your doctor what size of bougie he used. Count your blessing that you are able to eat. My first month was pure hell and I could hardly get anything in. Fast forward 8 months and I learned my body was going through a lot besides my surgery. I have Lupus and between that and the surgery they were both competing to get my attention! I could see how you could eat the asparagus and mashed potatoes with chicken because they are more of a slider food. You will be fine, just enjoy the journey
  13. My stomach definitely makes noises. Not as much as before, but it did have plenty to say!

    Sleeved on friday

    Try making them with more liquid. I also had the same problem for a long time. At Walmart they have a liquid whey protein mix it with water and freeze. Then eat ice chips all day long. This way you get some protein with liquid. The whole tube is I think 42 gr of protein, I would divide it into 3 servings, makes it easier to track protein in ice chips! Good luck

    I went to a consignment shop at first because you will be dropping sizes very often, so don't go and buy expensive jeans. Also my shorts are sweatpants material because you can tie it tighter when needed! I went from a size 14-6 within 6 months. Good luck and enjoy shopping you will be surprised!
