  1. When working out, do you go by how many calories you burn during a session or just workout for a certain number of minutes, like an hour? I'm trying to get an idea of what others are doing. I'll be 4 months post-op on August 8th. Also, how many days a week do you workout and for how long at a time (for those of you that just go by a certain number of minutes, not calories burned)?
  2. I haven't had my iron or any levels checked. I need to do that. I get in between 70 and 90g of protein a day, and 80 to 100 oz of Water.
  3. I'm 12 or 13 weeks post-op. I lost count. I'm so tired all the time with no energy. Is this normal? I assume so, due to the lack of calories I'm intaking (typically <700) compared to what I did pre-op. Anything I can do to get my energy back? I take b-12, b-complex, and all the vites I'm supposed to. Tired of feeling tired all the time!
  4. For what it is worth, I was sleeved by Dr. Nick on April 8th, and have done very well. No complications, no issues, hardly any pain. His staff has been wonderful. If you need anything, they promptly return messages, usually within an hour, much sooner if it is after hours. I'm officially 3 months out today and have lost over 54 lbs. I couldn't have chosen a better surgeon. Dr. Nick gave me my life back, and I'll be forever grateful to him for that.
  5. 101 lbs gone forever!

  6. How many minutes/hours per day do you exercise? I've been doing a tad bit over 30 mins per day on my Gazelle Supreme glider + the calories I burn doing housework during the day, but I'm thinking maybe I could/should be doing more time on my Gazelle. Not sure. :\

    Yes ma'am, just added. Please let me know if you do not receive the invitation.
  8. Might have something to do with me losing 49 lbs since March 25th and my body trying to play catch-up? Maybe. I don't know. Annoying, though.
  9. I'm getting at least 70g of protein and like 80+oz of water per day. Maybe I need to increase that. Today I'm doing a liquid day and getting in 104g of protein. I'll try this for a day or two and see if there is a change. Thanks!
  10. Around the time I was 3 weeks post-op, I began a stall. It has lasted for 17 days now. When do these things usually end??? I asked my surgeon's office and they told me to do a couple of days of liquids to try to get things moving along again, so I guess that is what I'm going to be doing. Not happy about it, but if it gets me on the right track again, then that's great. What has your experience been?
  11. Woke up this morning and the spots were pretty much faded. Not sure what the heck they were or why they just suddenly popped up yesterday. They weren't a stain or anything. I did take some extra Vitamin c last night. And, yesterday I did drink some lemon Water for the first time in forever, and also some apple juice (for regularity) the night before. I don't use self tanner (I'm too pasty & pale and would end up looking like an Oompa Loompa.) Not sure if that has anything to do with it??? I have an appt w/ my surgeon on May 24th so I'll mention it then. Everything else is totally fine. No yellowing of any other part of the skin or eyes. My liver was perfect during surgery. No problems otherwise. Just strange. Very, very strange. I'm keeping an eye on it, and if it comes back and/or gets darker, then I'll give the doctor a call. Thanks!
  12. Today I discovered that I have some weird funky brownish, orangeish, iodine splotchy looking things on my hands. What in the world are, and where did they come from? I read that it could be b-12 or Vitamin c deficiency, but I take both of those vites daily. I attached a photo to this post. I put circles around the discolorations. I was sleeved on April 8th, 2013. Thoughts?

    I was taking it pre-op and have continued taking it after. I've noticed no change.
