  1. Hello All I was banded 8/27/2012. I have lost a total of 33 lbs, and now find myself 6 weeks pregnant. I have wanted to get pregnant just did not expect it this soon, I've already lost 4 during pregnancy, I am making sure I am eating, but want to do it right. Now I know I'm pregnant it seems like food goes down easier. I haven't had a chance to contact my nutritionist but thought I would ask those here with experience. I was given a 6 month supply of protein shakes from my doctor. They are high calorie high protein no sugar protein shakes. They are okay on my stomach as long as they are cold. If I drank these twice a day with one healthy meal and a snack would that be okay? What was your experience? did anyone continue to loose during pregnancy?
  2. Hey LBT! I am a pre op bandster/artist. Currently i am in need of some work clothes since all my $$ is going towards surgery and making sure I have all my food and gym membership. I am an artist and I am willing to create something, or trade for something I currently have for work clothes. I am currently in size 18-20 pants/dress, and XL-XXL top size 9 (Wide) or 9.5 shoes size. I should mention I am 5'3" as well so if you are super tall pants might not work on me. If you are interested in seeing my artwork you can find me on Face Book at /CassandraDouglas.art.beyond.reason
  3. So today I was feeling pretty good and decided, okay maybe I can try to lay on my stomach. Not the best idea. UGH. It HUUUUUUUUURT. I had to call for DH to help me, I felt like a turtle stuck on it's back, I finally got up and have some soreness at my port site now. I am icing it, I hope I didn't cause any damage. How long before you were able to sleep on your stomach again? Also just wanted to let you know I have been extremely hungry today it is terrible, I wish I could exercise but I am not cleared from the doctor yet.

    Sex Drive

    My surgeon said I can have sex right away, just not Olympic, so basically that means no sex for a while

    Goodbye Pre-Op

    Thank you very much, I'm so excited I cant sleep lol
  7. You are lucky. I had to do two weeks pre op full liquids. and 48 hours pre op full Clear Liquids. bleh, I think i had a total of 500 calories between yesterday and today. But surgery is in about 16 hours and I've lost 15 lbs, so i'd say in the end it has been worth it
  8. I'm getting excited. this clear liquid diet is no joke though. lol I will let you know how everything goes.

    lookin good!
  10. I am so ready for this mentally and physically. I am just getting excited and a bit anxious. I have no idea how life will be thin, it is going to be strange to me. I have never been thin, it is kinda like my weight has been a barrier for me. I'm excited to see how different things will be professionally, and in the "art scene" (I am a part time artist). I wonder if I will be taken more seriously. Has anyone else delt with this. I have to take a deep breath during the day to level myself down from thinking and just enjoy the ride.
