  1. It might be your body adjusting to being smaller. My muscles have to adjust to my bones. I had a lot of pain, but my surgeon referred me to physical therapist. I do the physical therapy in a heated pool, which is really great.

    that's good to know. My doc referred me to physical therapy too. Didn't think it would help but I will try since you are getting results.

  2. I didn't tell anyone when I first started the program. I then told a friend of mine who said she was considering it. I then entrusted two friends. That's was it until about 3 months before surgery, then I told my family. That's it. I don't plan to tell anyone else. I think about it because since I've already done it they really can't have an opinion I'm going to care about but I haven't yet. It's really up to you. It's your business and you share with who you want to share with.

  3. Well I had RNY June 12th. Down 80 total and feeling not too bad. I went to my first family gathering and was disappointed in the old feelings and habits. I think I did ok but I don't feel I did. I snacked on peanuts and pea crisps. Then had dinner. I didn't eat passed fullness but feel I ate more then I would have had it been a normal day. I'm in a funk. Not sure if it's PMS, my depo provera shot is due, or what. I have gained 2 pounds, assuming Water from the depo due date. My thoughts of food are back and I'm fighting them everyday. I am scared I can't do this and don't want to fight all the time. It's only been 3 months. Please tell me my efforts of fighting these desires will lessen if I stay strong. I don't want this all to be for nothing. I love where I'm headed and try to remind myself of that when the going gets tough but as we all know the food can be stronger. I haven't given in yet and hope I can keep fighting.

  4. Never I my life would I have thought I would say those two words together. Lol. I like that my life is not surrounded with food and that I'm not obsessed. One great benefit of this whole thing. Eating is so uncomfortable most the time so it's not as fun and fulfilling as it used to be. That's a good thing. Anyone else feel this way?

  5. I stalled for 6 weeks. The doc finally put me on Probiotics and the scale started moving 24 hours later. I went to New Seasons, told them I had had the surgery and she suggested a senior formula at first to be gentle on the new pouch. I had no issues. I am taking 30 billion 2x a day. Our systems are so "messed" up right and any thing to help our bodies work better is beneficial. They won't hurt you so might as well try them.

  6. So happy to hear others going through this. I keep telling myself I will only weigh once a week so I'm not depressed everyday, just once a week. I just won't do it though. When I was losing 1-4 a day preop it was so exciting. I just hope my stall breaks soon it's very depressing.

  7. doTERRA Essential Oils have been a lifesaver for me! I don't take any medications whatsoever. I just use oils!

    I was told never to take NSAIDS again also. This was scary because I get Migraines quite often, and Ibuprophen was the only thing that would help. The first Migraine I had post surgery I tried liquid Goody's. The powder version has NSAIDS, but the liquid version was just acetaminophen. I don't know why, it may be because it was liquid, but almost instantly my pain faded. This never happens with any meds when I have a migraine. The next time I had a migraine it was the same thing. I have stocked up on these. They are liquid gold! They taste icky but well worth it.

    careful. Liquid goody has aspirin in it which is an NSAID.
