    Uti's

    I've had two since my surgery. I had my surgery in August. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App
  3. I usually say I had wls but sometimes when I feel like a smart ass I say something like my husband locks the refrigerator or I've been banned from the grocery stores. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App
  4. I was asked yesterday by male coworker " I bet your husband is happy now!" I told him I don't give a "F" what a man thinks about my new figure if you didn't like me when I was heavy don't "F" with me now that I'm thinner. That shut him down real quick!

  5. Don't postpone your surgery. Bring your husband and son with you. Even if your husband and son have to stay in the waiting room at least they will be there. Your daughter could come later that day to take your son home. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App

    Dumb question?

    Protein shake is considered a meal. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App
  8. I eat a Protein bar for one of my small meals. It helps me get my protein requirements in along with my meals without drinking shakes...I hate shakes. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App

    GERD and Gastric Sleeve

    I know bypass seems a little scarey but it if you have reflux you really should consider it. I went with bypass because of acid reflux. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App

    Fast Food Questions

    I'm 5 months post op gastric bypass. I do go out to eat but I make smart choices like salad, chicken, Soup. Lite choices on the menu. At this stage I couldn't eat something "bad" I don't have the room in my pouch. Also I'm trying to teach myself not to think of food as a reward. I know when I get to maintenence I can ocassionally have a bite of something off of my plan. I was and still am a food adict. I will always have to be careful not to fall back into that behavior. My brain is a fat girl brain in a thinner body. Surgery can't change that. Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App

    I think I broke it

    I had the same problem. I took stool softeners and fiber gummies. When I started eating and stopped drinking Protein shakes it improved. It was about 4 weeks post op. before it was "normal again" Sent from my SM-N910V using the BariatricPal App
