    3Months Post-Op

    Newbody12: My surgeon wants me to eat 3 times a day & 2 snacks. I get all my calories in which is 600-800 calories a day, but with me I can't seem to get enough protein.

    3Months Post-Op

    to Newbody12: I walk 2 miles 5 days out of the week if I get the chance some days I try to get to 3 miles. I eat healthy 60% of the time to be honest, which I know it should be all the time, old habits do die hard. I eat every 3-4 hours, but I have to remind myself cause otherwise I can go 5-6 hours & realize I haven't ate. But in between my meals I drink water all the time. How about yourself?

    Help! 2 Months Out

    I thought I was the only one going through this. I try my best to drink ice cold water, when I feel the urge to graze (I try) other wise I try to eat healthier snacks as well. I'm 10 1/2 weeks out.

    10 1/2 Weeks Out

    Thank you. It sure is a journey, man. I do/ did apologize every time for snapping at them & they say its okay, but I think it does bother them. I hope so!!! I have upped my exercise more by 2 hours added on to my walking. Also I have just now started doing weights little ones, lol, but I'm going to work my way up to heavier weights eventually.
  7. I'm 10 1/2 weeks out. My surgery date was Aug. 6th. The recovery for me was so crazy, I was in bad pain for 5 weeks. I had all kinds of crazy emotions, some days happy, mostly sad & crying, some days snapping at my husband & kids for reasons I still don't know. I still feel my stitches, like a pulling feeling, my doctor say their healing. Yesterday I actually started finally feeling like my old self. I'm finally happy, through all the pain I am glad I got the sleeve. Start weight 252 day of surgery 220 Today 208 I've lost 30lbs pre-op, post op 14lbs. I can't wait till I'm in ONEDERLAND, I haven't been there in 11 1/2 years. Just 8lbs to go.
  8. I'm a week out & normally I'm not a crying, but every now & then I realize I'm crying like crazy about pain: with the staples, gas pains & now hungry pains. My mind is so freaky confused. Some days I'm good, some days I have to lay in this bed all day. I just wish this would all pass now. Is anyone else going through crazy emotions?

    7 Weeks Out

    Okay thank you everyone I will not drink it. I was making sure.
  11. Hi everyone I'm 7 Weeks out & I was wondering can we have sparkling water.
  12. I'm on my 9th day of my liquid diet before surgery.... & it kills me to say I cheated. I cheated three times I cheated the 3rd day I cheated the 4th day & the 5th day, but not since then. I pray I didn't jeopardize my surgery. & my husband is sitting directly in front of me eating a grill chicken sandwich with BBQ sauce that's smells oh so yummy
  13. Ok, so I'll be 3 weeks Monday & I'm feeling this tugging/ tighten feeling mainly on/ down my side's is this part of the healing process (is it the stitches)? I've never had surgery before &/or stitches so I'm not sure what's going on? I'm so confused...

    When can we lay on our side(s)? Since my 2nd day out of surgery I could lay on my right side. But when I went to my 1st check up I asked & they told me not yet. So when can we lay on our side?
  17. KayKay20


    The nurse just told me I'd be moving that Mush around. I hope I spelled that right. I lay on my right side every time I get in the bed & forget I can't lay on my side till she tells me. It hurts my back laying on it sometimes.

    So Shaving Your Legs And Being Obese

    I use Nair & only have to shave my legs & do under my arms like once a month. Now my eyebrows & above my lip I do that like every two weeks.
  20. Does anyone know of any good Isopure? Where can you get them from?

    Pain On Left Side!

    Sweetpea1 Hello, a friend of mine just had the VSG on the 25th of July! She has been experiencing pain on the left side and she describes it as feeling like stitches popping inside her. I'm the same way. I had my surgery Aug. 6th & my mind started two days ago I feel the same way. Like my stitches are popping inside me. From all of my insicions, but at different times.
