    The fear of regain is REAL!

    Hey @@Elode thank you for this "timely" post, its a massive reality check for me! I've been in some funk lately since my beautiful mum passed away and i've put on 6lb as of this morning ????. I take full onus for this. After 12 months working hard on me, I know what I've done wrong and why, i just don't understand why I'm sabotaging myself and eating the crap I'm not supposed to be eating and not exercising as much as i should be. I need to snap out of this but i just don't know how ????. I pray that i can get back on track and stay on track and that starts this morning, its 5:45am and I'm getting ready to go for 1.5hr walk. Hopefully next time i post on these boards i will have lost what i've recently put on!

    VSG vs Gall Bladder Removal

    Hi Kindle, i had my gall bladder removed 3 months after i had VSG surgery. Recovery for me was about the same pain wise, however i was on strict advice to not lift anything greater than 5 lbs for 5 whole weeks. That was the most frustrating thing. I followed the doctors instructions and had no issues. I was very lucky my late mother was with me to help me for those 5 weeks.
  6. Awesome., thank you Steph for running a new challenge for us all, its greatly appreciated Starting weight 229 with my goal being 200 .

    What u use to make scrambled eggs

    I use non stick fry pan.. No oil needed. I make scrambled egg with a little bit of milk, whisk it up and then fry it in a hot fry pan.
  13. I am quite keen to hear reviews on these products being sold, this would help those of us who live outside of the USA make better informed decision on what we are purchasing, especially since we don't get free delivery regardless of how much we spend.
  14. Hi @@Tracytma, i did not have GERD prior to having the vertical sleeve. I developed this soon after surgery and it was absolutely awful! I was on rapreprozole 20mg a day which controlled it. I currently do not take meds daily for this anymore, however, on the odd occasion that i feel that burning sensation travelling up my oesophagus i just have a pill and I'm all good.
