    Meryline got a reaction from Berry78 in Something to brighten your day   
    @Berry78 I was suddenly in a rush as my original date was April 18th, but they got an opening before and I was next on the waiting list. I suddenly had 13 days and not 6 weeks to go before my surgery. I had started the day before I got the new date, thinking I had 6 weeks to get really low, but I suddenly only had 13 days lol.

    I'm so freaking happy for you.
    I have a tiny (TINY) hope that I'll get there by Monday. Then it's 8 months since my highest and the start of pre surgery diet.

    Meryline got a reaction from Dolcy1182 in Poll: How many carbs?   
    If you are able to get your Protein goal and get veggies in at 2 weeks out, good for you. Most people have enough just getting their protein and liquids goal in.
    I wouldn't count those as carbs at this point, unless you are getting several hundred grams.

    @Msdooloo why are you adding carbs at 15 days post op? Focus on your Protein. Eat all your protein, and if there are room, maybe eat some veggies, but not carbs. Also, berries with seeds (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries etc. ) is a no go this early as they can get stuck in the wound. Are they on your allowed list? I find that very strange.

    I woke up with that when I had kidney surgery a few years back. They told me they might, and they ended up doing it while I was under to get a better measuring of my blood pressure. I was a little sore around the puncture area for a week or two, but that was it. They removed it right after I woke up. I had it in my wrist.

    One tip is to suck on the tablets instead of chewing them. I tried chewing mine and it was horrible, they grew in my mouth. I now suck on them, and no problem at all.

    Well, if we go by the start of the preop diet, then you are WAY ahead of me.. I'm 8 months and 13 days since I started the preop liquid diet. (I only HAD to do it for 2 weeks, but started 2 weeks early to "get the hang of it"... impatient much?!)

    Yeah, very interesting article. I'd read about this study in mice and they were postulating if you could do transfers from skinny patients into obese subjects and have remediation of the obesity. Love this poopie talk!
    @Half-TumPraying that the avo thing is temporary until your tummy gets robust again. I think it maybe could be like eggs? My nut cautioned me to only eat avos that are very soft? Don't know if that might be an issue--maybe it's the fiber in more firm ones?

    This is a great article! It would also follow that they could wipe out obese people's microflora and replace with that of normal weight people.... maybe.

    7 months and 11 days.. 100lbs down!!! This also happens to be the lowest weight I reached during my last big diet in 2008.
    I have 2 kids that are trick-or-treating tonight. This time last year I vomited after walking up the hill next to my house (the exertion was just too much). I'm still pitifully out of shape, so we'll see if I fare any better
