    Mad at myself

    So as the title suggests I am mad at myself. Not looking for sympathy just more as a warning to those who are about to have the surgery or just had it.... I went back to all my old bad habits. I lost my mom less than a year afterwards and the depression set in. I'm gonna try and get help for where my brain is at. I've gained just about all my weight back. And I know I can get it off but it will take time. Any advice on where to start as far as the gym. Hugs Sent from my SM-A326U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Where’s the weight loss??

    It took me 4 months to lose 40 pounds. Weight loss is slow for some of us. Keep the faith Sent from my SM-A326U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Pre-Surgery Fears (2 Days Away!)

    Nerves are totally normal Sent from my moto e5 play using BariatricPal mobile app
  10. So I will tell you a bit about me and my journey. I am a 27 almost 28 year old poly kink non-binary. Pansexual wife to a pansexual man of almost 5 years whom I've known my entire adult life. I've always been heavy. Both my parents had addictions. My mother passed away in January of this year due to a massive heart attack and the issues associated with that. My father was where I got the obesity from he's battled diabetes high blood pressure cholesterol for close to going on two decades now and had a stroke at 35. I when I was diagnosed with diabetes at 22 decided nope I wasn't going to be my grandma who had strokes and 13 heart attacks mind you she was a smoker. Or my father. I was going to beat this. So I took that nasty metformin. I asked and asked for anything better until about 3 years ago I was put on victoza. Mind you I started with a baseline a1c of 9.7 when diagnosed. This most recent trip to the endocrinologist my a1c was 5.1 so low that they are removing the diagnosis of diabetes out of my chart completely. So in September of 2015 I decided initially to persue gastric bypass. I would later around the time of the choosing of my surgery date begin to have a total psychotic break from reality. I had 4 trips to the psych unit in 1 year. And my marriage got very strained. I also got placed on SSDI disability because I lost the ability to fully function after a long two years of medical and mental battles I tried again this time in a much better place. I had been thru months of therapy I was stable on meds and in a great place. I had gastric bypass on August 28th 2018 I had a highest recorded weight of 311 I had started my program at 280 I had a weight the day of surgery of 274. My 6 month post op visit was Thursday of last week I weighed 210. I've lost over 100 pounds in a year. Sent from my moto e5 play using BariatricPal mobile app

    I prefer Wegmans but they are pretty east coast and pretty high in sugar Sent from my moto e5 play using BariatricPal mobile app
  13. Checking in y’all 2 days post op and I’ve been home since yesterday. The gas pains are slowly going away I’m able to drink and drink my protein shakes in less than a half hour and I’m getting close to my goal of 64oz of fluids I might eat a jello

    Going back to school

    Ok y’all so like I’m always asking questions and answering when I have the ability to. But has anyone gone back to school later in life like 27ish for their first undergrad degree after this surgery. By the time I have classes I’ll be about 6 months out I’ll also be working so do you think my energy will be back by then I mean like before I gained 100 pounds lol. Because I was able to do an 18 hour shift before and not blink twice so guys chime in

    Should I be offended?!

    Sooo chiming in here we have 3 surgeons in our group the head is a female named dr Elizabeth dovec and she strongly encourages weights she knows from our fitness consultant that it tones and burns fat the more you lift so your dr is flat out wrong and an ass.

    The regain posts

    Ok so I was wrong on the study but I did actually look up the study and the head researcher who works at Hopkins did a great peice on the Keto diet being a good temporary solution for those with epilepsy. Mind you that’s been around since the 1920s but he does recommend the Mediterranean diet

    New here/had consult last week

    For anyone anyone out there who thinks they are too old we just had a 77 year old woman reach her goal weight and it was 3 years after surgery so no age isn’t a factor ok

    natural vs added sugars

    So our requirements which I know different than others are under 5 grams of sugar. But we remove sugar alcohols and fiber. And it has to be under 15 carbs a serving. Also we can have 3 servings of fruit a day. 1 per meal as long as we get in our protein first but we have to wait until week 6 when we can also have salad
  25. Chiming in here so go see your doc lamictal is a very tricky med my mother in law who has been practicing for 35 years barely prescribes it because of the very high chance of Steven Johnson syndrome. Up until this time you were fine but just go. Also you might want to try trileptal it’s the same mechanism in the brain and safer for rny patients.
