    Hungry!!

    IM HUNGRY ALL THE TIME TOO MY VICE ... A JAR OF PEANUT BUTTER AND CELERY.
  2. Day 2 of my pouch reset.

    Not as tough as I thought it would be.... but it still is only 1030am on day 2.  Perhaps this is the calm before the storm when I have to cook my family supper tonight.

    Either I am stronger than I thought I was or it really is just easier and better drinking protein juices and water.

      GOOD for you!!! I find that when I go back to Protein Drinks I can stick to eat better. I think it takes the pressure off of me. I don't have to make choices, only the flavor I want. Good for you getting back on track!! KEEP ON KEEPING ON!!!

      I have had a dreadful headache for the majority of the day. Even after 2 shakes, 1 decaf coffee and a mug of broth I am still hungry and headache has not subsided even after 2 Tylenol.

      Fingers crossed I can last the night. I am really really looking forward to a scrambled egg for breakfast.

    Hair loss!!

    I am 2 years post op. I lost my hairline about 1-1/2" into my hair line. I didnt notice how bad it was until the summer when I pulled my hair into a pony and saw my hair line. I became anemic, iron and vitamin B deficient one year post op. My doctor monitors my blood levels now. After taking prenatal vitamins (doctor recommended, and NOT I am not pregnant) and biotin and eating more red meat, 7 months and my hair has started growing back.

    Pouch Reset

    I am 2 years one month post op. I have not gained any weight but I have found myself eating lot more than I should lately. I have also noticed a small belly growing on my. That could be because of the extra calories, or the fact that I haven't been to the gym the last 3 weeks. I started a pouch reset today. 2 liquid meals down so far ... 4 more to go. I have been satisfied with my nectar protein powder. Its so much better than any other ones I have tried. Its like drinking crystal light. Very tasty.
  7. Seeking support.  I feel like I am loosing my new self to the evil of my old self.  The battle is 10x harder this time around.

      I am finding it very difficult because I have kept my surgery journey to myself. I have a great issues with appearing weak, thus struggling silently and not express my difficulties to others.

      Today is the new chapter in my Book of Life.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Saying prayers. You got this. Wake up today and just make 1 change. Eat protein first. Go back to basics!!! ((hugs)) It's got to be terrifying.

  8. I use to frequent the site for a lot of support pre-op and shortly for post op. This is a place where I felt VERY comfortable talking, asking questions and to seek advice. 2 years post op I have slow started the road back to my old self. I find myself taking a couple extra cookies when I bake for my kids, having an extra ... QUITE a few extra bites of dinner regardless of how full I am. Regretting it as I do it, but it tastes so good. I have not gained any of the weight back, except a couple pounds which is normal fluctuation of weight for me. Between 149 and 153, nothing big. I know I need to get my **** back together because I will NOT go back to where I was and want to stay on the healthy habit path I have been on the past two years I am just slipping and its very hard for me. I am looking for some positive advice on a healthy pouch reset for someone who goes to the gym. I am looking for some positive encouragement because I know I cant be alone in this battle. We all know how mind numbing being heavy was and how exhilarating it felt when we stood on the scale and not only could we see our feet but we could see the numbers getting smaller. My partner I am with, I have been with since shortly after post op is completely unaware of my surgery, my past eating disorder or the mental chaos that goes on inside my head. I know I should talk to him about this, but I am really not ready to. Only a small handful of people know about my journey and an even smaller amount know the mental anguish I suffered to get me to surgery. I have to be careful with a pouch reset diet as I am anemic, iron deficient and can no longer absorb vitamin B. My hair also started falling out again last year. I take alot of supplements which are helping. Guidance, support, feedback I appreciate it all.

      These shoes have heels ? Oh Lawd.....now I'm dreaming, too. Spring is here !!!!

  10. Prior to surgery I was an avid member of my yoga studio practicing a couple days a week. I am FAR from a super yogi and am nothing to write home about, but it was my form of exercise, my alone time without being alone plus I always felt amazing after 75 minutes of sweating in a +38 degree room. Anyways.... I waited until my body was fully recovered before I hit the studio again. I started going once a week attempted twice a week but I am finding even THAT quite difficult. I physically cannot hydrate myself enough during the day, so going to class will be the death of me. I find myself weak, unable to hold any poses for half the time. I cannot seems to find my center and I loose all concentration and fall down. I see spots, my sight goes blurry and I just want to lay down. After re-reading this is sounds very "first world problem" of me but it is a struggle that I deal with every week, I don't want to quit the studio, but I also don't know WHY this is happening and what I can do to change how I practice in class. After class I usually feel like a million bucks, now I still feel like a million bucks but then I am so exhausted for the rest of the day that I dont have much energy. Has anyone else had these type of issues with starting a new routine after surgery? Perhaps its the "hot" environment? This is the one thing in my life that I enjoy doing for ME and the thought of loosing it sucks.

  13. Stalls are caused by your body needing time to catch up from the rapid weight loss. Just keep on with everything and your body will restart the weight loss again soon. I PROMISE. We've all been in your shoes ..... a few times over 17# in one month is DEFIANTLY something to be proud of. In a week you'll be at 20, then 23,. then 27. Its only going to go up from here.
