    So don’t tell them. I agree, if they don’t support and only throw shade then they don’t need to know. Excited for you.
  5. I am a few days away and so excited and nervous all at the same time. Thank you all for sharing and keeping us updated. It helps so much for us who are waiting and have questions. My surgery is a revision from sleeve to bypass due to Hiatal Hernia which my surgeon will repair, GERD and never getting to goal with some weight gain. 2017 HW 284 I’m 5’3 LW after sleeve 194 after I juiced for three days to break the 200’s. Then two years ago I gained up to 224 and I turned vegetarian. Got down to 187. Then COVID hit. I have gained and lost the same 30 lbs for the last few years. Now my current weight is 225. My revision is set for Thursday, 2/17. I am hopeful all my efforts will get me to goal this time. I’m scared to end up the same. Wish me luck.
  6. 2/17 here. I can’t wait. Best health and success to all.
  7. Congratulations on your surgery date. Sending you success and healing vibes.
  8. Interesting post. Happy you all shared. I have my revision from VSG to RNY bypass next week and I am so anxious to know how my body with adjust. I have terrible GERD now plus have gained and lost the same 30 pounds for 2 years. I had VSG in March 2017.

  14. I currently consume anywhere from 450 - 650 calories per day. I log on myfitnesspal to track my protein mainly. I aim for 75 grams of protein per day. I don't always make it. My average protein is 50 to 75 grams per day. I still struggle to drink the 64 oz of water per day too.
  15. I had surgery 3/2/2017. 2/8/2017 I weighed in at 284. My Pre-op started 2/23/17. Today I weigh 248.

  20. Hi. Yes, no redness for me either. It does feel like burning with movement.
  21. I am two days post surgery. Swelling on the incision next to my belly button is huge and painful. Lots of bruising too. This is on my left side. Can anyone give me some insight on how long this will take to normalize? Thanks in advance.
  22. I had my surgery on the 2nd also. Lots of swelling and bruising around my belly button. Sipping is pretty uncomfortable but trying to when I am not sleeping. No bowel movements either. Burping on and off but not much more. Best of luck and speedy recovery to all.
  23. My surgery is tomorrow morning! I am a flood of emotions, but mostly excited to start this journey. I appreciate all of you for your endless advise and information. Wish me a speedy recovery! Soon I will be on the infamous losers bench. I can't wait.
