  1. Thanks. Dealing with the Hurricane?
  2. Before and after. Couple close coaching friends getting ready to do the same thing. Very fortunate that I had good insurance. Had to do the 6 month wait (visit and class once a month) but it was worth it. I was a walking heart attack waiting to happen on Friday nights in the fall. So much energy and adrenaline go into a Friday night.

    First Time (even after WLS)

    I guess I should have posted this as a question. Once you hit or get close to goal, is there anything you are going to do for the first time? What are you looking forward too? I still have a bucket (what is the opposite of a bucket list? not dying, living for the first time in a long time) list of things I cannot wait to try.

    First Time (even after WLS)

    A coach on my staff had his 40th birthday party at a Vegas (never been) style pool. This was the first adult pool party I have ever been invited to. NO way I would have done this prior to WLS. I had a blast and felt normal with my body. Trying to blonde out my graying hair may have been a mistake (mid life crisis) but still had a lot of fun. Even enjoyed a few Shiners. Just kept track of my calories to not over do it. This was back in July. Have lost another 8-9 lbs from this picture. Never thought this would be possible. You can do this too! Hang in there.
  5. Thanks. The place I had my surgery cautioned us against high protein shakes. I’ll bring this up at the next appointment.

    Boobs !

    New. Favorite. Thread.
  7. I was told the body can only handle 30 g of protein per hour? Anything more is just wasted.

    When Did Your Weight Stabalize

    Around 18 months for me.
  10. The same thing happened to me. Two different results: 1. Was able to order soup and fit in. Just sipped on it through out the meal. 2. I ordered, but did not eat anything. Just cut it up and moved stuff around on the plate. When someone noticed I just said that I was not that hungry. Saved me from having an awkward conversation about my procedure.

    Non Scale Victories

    Hiked up two (2) mountains this summer. 12,998' and 14,202'. Tried the first one three years ago and almost passed out within the first 20 mins.
  12. Really keep it simple. I do not like to walk outside (loved to run before I gained weight) either but I started listening to podcasts and it made the time fly by. Eventually added a weight vest. Do not have time for gym memberships, and when I am home there is no time (3 kids) to find a spot to workout. Now I look forward to my walks so I can get caught up on the "free" podcasts that I subscribe too. Almost works out to 1 episode per day.

    40 something sleevers?

    Sleeved at 44. Wish I would have had this done 20 years ago. At 46, I am healthier and in better shape than I was in my mid 20’s. Will say that a complete body transformation brings its own challenges.

    Vitamins and Supplements

    Really started out as just being lazy. I ran out and did not have time to get more. Felt like it was a “scam” that I had to pay extra for a Bariatric vitamin. (Something that dissolved faster).

    Vitamins and Supplements

    I stopped taking vitamins at 6 months post -op. Figured it would show up during my annual physical in my blood work. Just had another physical (18 months post op) and my doctor said everything checked out just fine. Eating very well and saved $700 in vitamin cost. Hit my goal and feel stronger and healthier than I have been in 20 years.
