    Your Feet & Shoe Size ?

    My shoe size changed in terms of width.
  2. Had Gastric Bypass on 2/8 & will be celebrating 4 weeks on Thursday. So far I've lost 37 pounds & off of 2 of my 3 diabetes medications, one of them being insulin so I'm extremely happy about that. I'm back to work but still feeling weak only have enough gas in the tank til about 3 in the afternoon but pushing ahead. I'm living off of soup, cottage cheese & yogurt. I don't think that I'd be sane if it wasn't for Sugar Free Popsicles. Hitting my first stall during the last couple days I was losing a pound to pound & a half a day, knew the stall was going to come but still al little bitter that the scale hasn't moved in two days. Also during the last couple days a new phenomenon has come up, just THINKING about a protein shake makes my mouth break into that warm pre vomit feeling, not good. Going to try and mix in some scrambled or hard boiled eggs. So weird not being physically hungry I try to explain it but nobody believes it, but I know you guys do. Hope everyone is well, prayers for your recoveries!

    February bypass buddies?

    So I'm 19 days post surgery & everything is going pretty well. I've lost 31 pounds and for the first time in a long time I'm below 300 pounds. I'm in puree phase and since I'm a fan of cottage cheese and yogurt I'm doing alright. It is bizarre not being hungry I haven't felt the physical sensation of being hungry since surgery. My only complaint is the urgency when it comes to the bathroom, I wish they would have warned us about that in our classes, I mean we were in there for 12 weeks you'd thing they could toss in that everything going in is liquid so it's going to come out as liquid and if you're not careful you're going to be ruining some drawers. Glad everyone is doing well and thoughts and prayers for your recoveries and pending surgeries, Keep it up guys!

    My surgery at 11 today

    Praying for you, Everything's going to be great as you start your new chapter.
  10. My gastric bypass is on 2/8 and I lost 20 pounds during my options start to now, I work out and pretty much adhere to my new eating habits and am comfortable with the decision that my eating will forever be different come next week. For the last couple weeks I've been hitting a few of my favorite places to get my last taste for a long while. I had to overcome serious self destructive behaviors in the past and have been successful not going backwards. Good luck to you and keep your eyes on the prize..

    Guys who started in the 240s/50s

    I take 10 different meds a day, if having surgery & taking vitamins everyday gets me off of them, I'll take it.

    I'm now 15 days away from my bypass surgery, 15 days! About 8 months of work and now the time is just flying by, I know that everyone says not to "Last Supper" but it's getting hard not to. I'm not scared or worried about post op eating changes I just know that it's going to be a while before I can have certain foods so I'm rationalizing it to myself that way. I'm not going crazy and haven't put on any of the weight I've already lost it's just hard to walk away from Tommy's double chili cheeseburger without a proper goodbye, after all it helped make me the man I am today! It's great to hear from all you post ops out there, it's really helped me feel even more confident than I did before. Here's to the next 15 days!

    I was wondering, when you stack your BCAA's & Creatine, do you have to ingest them over a period of a couple hours to get it down? After Bypass it would seem hard to get down more than 8oz of liquid at one time. I know that you're supposed to build up your creatine intake and BCAA's you can mix in water and take all day. Just wondering how you schedule everything in including Protein I would imagine. Thanks for the previous response too.
