    Dfw Area - Products To Give

    Sure. Send me your address. I'm dying to get it off my kitchen counter! My advice, try it before hand. Most people love the nectar, but I could not stand it!
  5. If you live in the Dallas Ft Worth area and are willing to pick this stuff up in North Oak Cliff, I have a bag full of goodies that I couldn't use. It includes 2 Tubs of nectar Protein (one has 1 serving missing), 2 bottles of the Bariatric Advantage Vitamin crystals (I might have used 2 servings out of one bottle); some Bariatric Advantage chocolate Protein Bars, A few single serving Bariatric Advantage shakes, a chewable multi vitamin, and a few other odds and ends that I was supposed to use post op, but couldn't. I hate to just throw the stuff out, so I am hoping someone can use it! Message me.

    Products To Give

    I have 2 tubs of Nectar (1 open with 1 serving gone), some bariatric advantage vitamin crystals, some bariatric advantage chocolate protein bars and a few other random items to give if someone is willing to come and pick them up in North Oak Cliff. Nectar was supposed to be the basis of my first 3 weeks post op, but as it turns out, it was not for me Same with the BA vitamin crystals. Anybody interested?

    Heart Rate Monitor?

    Anybody using a heart rate monitor that they're really impressed with? I had a Polar 15 years ago (the last tine I seriously exercized) that was pretty good but I'm guessing things may have changed since then.
  9. I just hit 4 weeks yesterday, and today is the first day I'd say that I feel like my old self again - energy wise . The weakness and general sick feeling at first really did make me wonder if I'd lostmy mind doing this. I mean being thin will be great and all (if I don't turn out to be the only person in the history of the world who does this and does not lose weight) but, contrary to some opinions, I do not believe it is the end all be all of the world. Ill be honest. . . If we're talking forever, Id take fat and feeling human over thin and the way I felt the first month after this surgery. But, like I said, I suddenly woke up this morning feeling human again. Now, if I could just lose some weight!

    Am I The Only One Losing Slow

    If you're slow, maybe I should give up. I had mine on the 7th and I've only lost 14 lbs since then. Been stalled for more than 2 weeks. Trying to stay positive

    August Sleevers?! Where Ya's At?

    Don't worry. I was the same way. . . only I was taking phenagren and zofran and even turning on the TV made me throw up. The spirometer. . . forget about it! I could not speak, move or think, much less drink without vomiting. . . well actually, dry heaving, because I was beyond empty. My doctor told me that 2-5% of people react that way and that it is mostly due to the anesthesia. I spent 2 nights in the hospital (my surgery was on a Tuesday too) and finally went home late Thursday afternoon. Even then, it took me a couple more days for the nausea to subside. Subside, however, it did. Yours will too. Hang in there.

    5 Weeks Post-Op: The Stall Is Over

    Would you mind posting a couple of days worth of your food diary? I am 3 weeks out, just started soft foods today, and already stuck in a stall. Seeing something specific to work towards would be a help.
  13. I'll be honest. . . I hate driving past Sonic and knowing I can never again order my Large Diet Dr. Pepper with extra ice and a straw. It was my drug of choice for years, and on a stressful day like today, I sure wish I had one!

    So Sloooow...argh!

    I am in the same boat. I'm three weeks out tomorrow. I lost 15 pounds pre-op, another 10 in the first week and a half, and I've been gaining and losing the next 3 ever since. I haven't even moved on from strained liquids yet- not til tomorrow, so I know it's not over eating. I struggle with the Protein (mixed without ice or anything - too thick per Dr. - I can barely tolerated any I've tried). I'm about to think I'm going to be that 1% who never loses more than 20-25 lbs no matter what they do!

    Anxiety Disorder Post Surgery

    I have lived with a generalized anxiety disorder my whole life. I treat it with a low dose of Zoloft. Of course, one of my primary triggers has always been medical issues. It was a clear indication to me and my family how serious I was about weight loss that I was willing to even consider surgery. Ill be honest. Pre-op my anxiety was pretty bad. Same while I was in the hospital. But since I've been home (I'm 2 weeks out today) I really have not had any issues.
