  5. Hi everyone I'm doing the coconut isopure not too bad and it also has coconut water. Remember water is most important first week and if you have nausea you could also be dehydrated sip sip sip. I'm 11 days out feeling great. The more walking you get in the better I was approved to power walk so I've been hitting the tread mill and elliptical I believe this has lead to a bm every day no constipation ever. I'm sleeping good. I have not weighed myself I go to the doctor on Wednesday I will wait my main focus is following the rules being safe and staying complication free. Except for nausae which I got meds for its all good
  6. Every surgeon is different. Just follow the rules of your surgeon he is the operating on you and that's probably just how he does his type of surgery. Good look and let us know how your doing
  7. I'm one week today. With exception of bad nausea for two days smooth recovery, I haven't been on scale I will wait till I go see the surgeon next week day of surgery I was at 200. I don't feel any smaller but the head hunger is even less
  8. I haven't weighed myself I'm waiting for doctor appt that way for myself I don't short change myself right now on nutrition after my six week check in I will weigh once a week at weight watchers. Don't forget the body is healing tummy swollen hard getting in all protein and water
  9. Fabulous you go girl
  10. It all depends on your insurance coordinator at your doctors office believe me they can work wonders. From getting my last unfilled for Lapland issues to getting my date was six weeks. I was 214 when I got unfilled. I was 200 at surgery on may 2. They accepted weight watchers as the supervise diet. And it wasn't 90 days as long as I attended feb. march and April. My doctors office contacted them the Friday after my first April meeting on the Thursday night. By Tuesday I was approved and by Friday had letter in hand from bobs. My doctors office was so confident I had my three nut apps. And psych done before approval. Any help you need let me know also I have basic not standard. Please remember follow the pre op. it is what helped my surgery move faster along without complications and driving the day after I got out of hospital the staff said to me you must of followed the rules because of how I recovered. There two women on my floor who cheated during pre op and were doing terrible they were in so much pain. Surery was longer liver still had slime on it
  11. Sometimes it can be your body signal that its full
  12. I started weight watchers 6 weeks prior to surgery it has helped tremendously also made approval easy ww counted however if anyone is interested sparkpeople. Dot com is free and its like ww online while we all fund our way to this lifestyle along the way if you graze substitute it with lower calorie carb items. We can do this
