    Walking the dogs

  9. I was denied and had all my doctors give me a Medical necessity letter. I sent them in to my insurance company after Bariatrics put in an appeal. I followed up with phone calls and finally got approved. I think taking it on myself and being polite and persistent helped. Good luck. Sent from my VS986 using the BariatricPal App

    Will I be broken forever?

    This is exactly how i feel. Im so regreting this surgery..i have so many cramps..they come strong for 5 seconds then they are gone. I feel week. This,pain has woke me up. Its 430am. I cant sleep. My husband is sleeping next to me. Should i wake him up because im in pain? Is it,gas? Is my sleeve? How do i know that? I was sleeve 10.26.16Im confused. Sent from my SM-G920T1 using the BariatricPal App Gas can last for a couple of weeks and it hurts. The more you move, walk, the quicker you'll get rid of it and have less pain. In 6 weeks out and for me the gas lasted about 1 week. I forced myself to get up and down and walk, walk. You don't have to walk far just often. You'll be feeling better soon Sent from my VS986 using the BariatricPal App

    When concerned always call your doctor. Or might be from all the anesthesia and medicine. Drink as much Water as you can. Congratulations on your new journey. Sent from my VS986 using the BariatricPal App

  15. There are recipes for low carb PB Cookies as well as Protein balls that you can look up. Sent from my VS986 using the BariatricPal App
  16. Part of the learning is learning patience (I'm speaking from my own experience). When you do have the surgery you will need to be patient with dietary phases, the sporadic weight loss and emotional challenges. Being in this forum is very helpful especially scrolling through the before and afters. It helps me keep my eye on the prize. Good luck Sent from my VS986 using the BariatricPal App

    Feeling scared

    Excellent advice and suggestions. Sent from my VS986 using the BariatricPal App
  18. I'm thinking about investing in a dehydrator for vegetable chips and fruit chips. Is it worth the investment? Of you have one, what do you think?
  19. I had the lap band 8 years ago and converted to the sleeve this past September. The band surgery, and the sleeve, we're very manageable. Both had pre-ob diet. I used prepared Premiere Protein both times (until it was Clear liquids only). For the clear liquids I used filtered Water, Crystal light and tea. It was hard but I did it. Its a lot of mental work, refocusing. The sleeve surgery has a longer recovery for both healing and diet. I had initial success with band but honestly I still yo-yoed with weight. Personally the band wasnt enough of a tool for me so I decided to do the sleeve. Good luck with your journey. Sent from my VS986 using the BariatricPal App

    No more weight loss

    Your questions are excellent. I am eating pretty much the same foods I ate before but much lesser quantity. I don't drink Protein shakes anymore. Today for example, I ate a half of English muffin, a half macaroni and cheese smallfrozrn dinner and a pickle. I'm not doing very good but I think it's because when I was doing good, I stopped losing weight. I am not on any exercise program as I have a knee that is needing surgery. I have diabetes on insulin and am taking prednisone for PMR. I weigh about 170..at 5ft 3inches. I know insulin and prednisone is bad. Sent from my SM-N930V using the BariatricPal App How do you expect to lose when you are eating carbs, fats and prepackaged food? I am sorry for what you went through but it has nothing to do with what your choosing to do now. Be in the moment, protein, low carb veg, Water. Good luck.

    What Is Your Beverage of Choice?

    It's super easy and fun. I've been doing it for years now. First you get 1 tablespoon of kefir grains (can buy it from Amazon or have a friend send to you since it really multiplies hehe), you add that tablespoon to 1 or 2 cups of milk, leave it out at room temperature for 24 hrs, strain the grains off, and you have kefir. You reuse the grains over and over. I still have the original grains from years ago. To the strained off kefir, you can put it in smoothies, and use just like yogurt but it has waaaay more probiotics than yogurt, more strains to protect you from illnesses. Then with the strained kefir grains, you just add that into new milk and you do it over and over. It's easier to watch the video below as I'm not ept enough to explain it hehe. It's a great hobby too! Here is my favorite youtube video (it healed this girl from Crohn's disease): Can you do this with almond milk?

    Yes, I've got a great one - I tried cucumber, grapefruit, and mint. It tastes horrid haha. I'm not sure where it went wrong, that combo is everywhere.Did you mix them together???? or separate batches?
