  1. Just curious how everyone is doing. I'm 6 weeks post op, 44 lbs down. Just got cleared to go back to the gym.
  2. Last night I ate 4 bites of soft serve and a whole mini cupcake. This morning it's right back on the straight and narrow. I've vowed not to beat myself up if and when I slip up. Instead I'm focusing on the positive. Over 40 lbs in two months, 3 pants sizes and 2 shirt sizes.

    October 100 Mile Challange!

    I went back to work two weeks ago, I work 12.5 hr shifts. We get two 15 min breaks and a 45 minute lunch. I jog walk the parking lot during my lunch for 15-20 minutes and walk 7-10 minutes each break. I don't know about distance but I know I'm not sitting on my butt my breaks, and I'm almost at 50 lbs 5 weeks out.

    Why the pre-op diet?

    Shrinks the liver and gives the surgeon more room is what mine told me.
  5. I started two weeks before my liquid diet cutting out carbs, sugars and most fat. Ate protien bars "quest", protein shakes and lean meat. Helped me when I had Togo to the liquid phase. Good luck.

    Help - liquid stage week 2

    I was allowed unsweetened almond milk ( vanilla) helped flavor shakes and added calories I needed, SF jello, decaf tea, isopure, SF pudding, proti gel, any SF drink flavorings like crystal light, Gatorade zero. Hang in there you will get through it.

    telling people?

    I have been completely open since my surgery, I was scared but everyone has been so supportive and full of encouragement. I'm glad I did. My co workers barrage me with questions, I've had finds private message me and ask about the surgery. I think if you didn't have support this would be so much harder. But this is a decision only you can make. Good luck with it.

    Did a nice quick walk around my friends property today. I guess a couple miles.

    October 100 Mile Challange!

    Went back to work this week, 12.5 hour night shifts. I walk around the parking lot on my 2 breaks and lunch but feel so tired by the time I get home I just go sleep. Weekend will be here soon for me hope to get my walk on
  10. I have told everyone and I am only 4 weeks out. I have found nothing but an out pouring of love and support from all my friends and family. I think it's made my journey that much easier. 40+ lbs, 2 pants sizes and 2-3 shirt sizes (depends on fit) lost
  11. Do they have it in other flavors? I can't stand orange unless it's from a tree or OJ.

    Okay, apparently the batteries are low on my scale, I went for my official weigh in at the dr today, 6.5 lbs for a total of 39.8 for my first month. I Guess all the walking at the ranch last week paid off. Now I can start the gym and bicycling, super excited.

    October 100 Mile Challange!

    Spent 6 days on a ranch with no cell or wifi, walked 2 miles a day, a lot of uphill and stuck to my post op diet. Lost 0 lbs..... Frustrated, but trudging onward.
  15. Congrats on the 22 lbs. and for ideas go to the nutritional section and get ideas.
