  1. I have a fit bit and I love it. You have to manually put in certain activities. It doesn't like to pick up stationary bikes, boo!

    this may start a riot.

    Should have seen the look my NUT gave me when I said I had 1-2 cups of (GASP!) coffee a day

    That's awesome news! I'm glad you are on the mend!

    Caffeine withdrawl

    I weaned off caffeine and then 4 months after surgery I'm back to a cup a day of coffee.
  6. That's not slow 2-3 lbs is a great place to be! As long as it comes off is my motto!

    Which Blender Do you LOVE?!?

    I have a ninja blender. No problems. Can do big batches or cups with lids.

    I was on so many anti nausea things in the hospital that if I was nauseated I wouldn't know. Started with a patch behind my ear that was incredibly dehydrating and then they pumped me with anti nausea the whole time and if I needed it I was given phenegran drips. Then I had zofran at home and phenegran suppositories as well. They do not want you throwing up. Please stay on them about it until you find a solution!

    I did not go through that but if I did I would have the same complaints. Please keep hydrated as best you can. Make them check your dehydration if you need to. You may need an IV to pull out of it. Did they give you anti nausea meds?

    Pregnancy Post-op

    With the rapid weight loss in the beginning I would wait the 12 months. Then it would seem easier to maintain and follow a safe, healthy routine for you and baby.

    I am feeling loads better

    A week out is when my energy came back. I'm glad you are doing better! It does get easier!

    im a little over a week post op

    Since this will probably come up, make sure you are on a PPI of sorts. The acid can mimic hunger pain. If it is hunger just try to keep getting your protein and water in. It should subside (hopefully!) as you can take more in.

    Here I go...

    Best of luck! I have no regrets yet and I'm 6 months out.
  14. I'll be honest and say I hated my preop diet. I was exhausted, angry, and felt miserable. But surgery came and went and I recovered nicely (very little pain minus some lodged gas) and I haven't looked back.
