  1. I need a serious carb detox, and the sugar cravings are driving me batshit crazy. Any suggestions?

    1. Djmohr

      Been there many many times in my life. I cannot figure out why I go back because I really don't even like them anymore. The only thing that helps me is stopping them completely and then slowly introducing good carbs back in.

  2. Today was amazing.I went shopping for clothes and for the first time in my life I can put on a small top and size 8 pants. I went from 3x top and 32 pants with a weight loss of 178. If this is a dream don't wake me up!

      Wow! What a fantastic outcome for you. Congratulations I bet you feel fantastic in those new clothes too!

  3. I am anxious and excited. Headed to Vegas on Friday. After 30 years of going there at least twice per year, we have made many friends. I have not seen them nor have they seen me since 10 weeks after surgery. Many don't know and I am somewhat unrecognizable. Looking forward to seeing them, have to decide what I share and what i don't. It will be fun though, it is vegas afterall!

      LOL. 25 red! You got it. I am certain they will be happy for me. My husband is the one that freaked me out a little. He reminded me that some of them probably won't recognize me. I am fine sharing my story and you are right it would be harder if I had not lost the weight. Plus, I got some great new outfits to wear!

  4. Today was my first day on the lathe for some serious wood cutting since before surgery. I discovered an unintended (or unforeseen) consequence. My smock which keeps the wood chips from going down the inside of my shirt is now too big, and cannot be tightened enough to be snug around my neck. And believe it or not, I have a funny story about this, which involves wood chips, Mrs. LittleBill's underwear, and threats made to my safety. Hundreds of people at demos have heard it. ;-)

      Gotta tell you, I am with your wife on this one. Better go shopping for a new smock!

  5. Well, my husband and I have decided there will be NO MX surgery... I'm looking at a surgeon in FL that does the VSG for $7800. I've sent him 2 requests with no response. I'm also looking locally. God is in Control! There;s a reason for it all!

      He does work in mysterious ways. Best of luck with your search. i hope that you find a surgeon that will work for you.

  7. sleeve surgery on tuesday, went well zero pain , but the nausea is unbearable any suggestuins

    1. Djmohr

      Djmohr

      Zofran for sure. Also, are you getting enough water. Being dehydrated can leave you extremely nauseous. It is like a vicious circle if you don't get it under control. Are you getting close to 48 - 64oz of fluids? If not, keep sipping the more hydrated you get, the less nauseous you get. There are other symptoms too such as dizzy, weak, headache and it can even mimic hunger.

  8. Third day post op, was able to eat way more than expected. Kinda worries me

    1. Djmohr

      Djmohr

      I am guessing you are in the liquids phase? If so, as you enter soft foods you will find that is no longer the case. So you should not worry.....

      I did not notice how far out from surgery you are. You are definately not eating enough. Are you still losing?

  11. I started the pre-op diet on 12/20 and had my surgery on 1/3. I'm down 20 pounds. I am drinking my protein and other fluids and feel pretty good! The pain is minimal and nausea gone. I just had to get the constipation under control and felt okay after that. I've been productive today, but I bet I will sleep like a baby tonight!

    1. Djmohr

      Nicely done! Congratulations and I am so glad that things were not so bad for you.

      1 degree here in Wisconsin but it is supposed to warm up to a balmy 15 degrees before the Green Bay Packer game on Sunday. I am sending hubby and son because I get too cold to sit out there anymore. I used to do it.... so now I say, been there done that and watch the game from my recliner.

      @Babbs...you were the person she was talking about in that personal message. LO> I have to say i chuckled. It was ridiculous. The good news is Alex immediately banned both of her accounts so she should be gone.

      HMMMM. Now I got a private message from who I believe is the same person that called me negative yesterday. Apparently she claims that I told her to check into a mental hospital at one point?! I can honestly say I have never said those words in any post every. This person created a whole new account just to private message me. At this point I reported her.... I am not one to stop posting on here because of one person but it is very annoying. Clearly I did something really bad or this person is simply a troll. But she called me a troll in her private message along with someone else. It is kind of funny what happens to people. WTH.

  18. I got a 2nd job to help pay for my skin surgery in addition to my business. Now that I am sitting in an office all day and not working from home. I understand how some of you struggle with food post-op.

      You know, it is funny you mention coffee. I think it is because of the cold weather here but recently I started stopping at Starbucks for my skinny vanilla latte. I had not had one in two years and suddenly I am stopping a couple times a week now. In fact, just came from taking FIL cat to vet and I am sipping one right now. It is a lovely balmy 1 degree outside today. BBRRRRRRR.

      Dense protein will hold you the longest. Also for me, cottage cheese has the same effect.

      Yay! Hate those stalls. I finally had to literally just ride the wave and everything worked out great. Glad to hear you are making up for lost time.

      How as the paper plates and plastic cups last night?!

      Hopefully it will get easier to resist. I don't work outside my home but when I visit my relatives (FIL) he is constantly pushing cake, pie, cookies, ice cream at me. No matter home many times hubby and I tell him that I don't like that stuff, he pushes anyway. In his defense, he is 87 and a big sweetheart so I try not to let it get to me. Sometimes, when there is pie.....I really struggle because it is my favorite. The other junk makes me sick.
