    I had the bypass on 2/15. No meds once I left the hospital and have followed the plan and I have no regrets. Everyone I've met through my program and support groups have loved whichever surgery they had. Only regrets have been not getting it sooner. Good luck, happy journey.

    Regretting it

    I felt that way too. It wasn't hunger and I don't think it was even head hunger. I was just bored. Sitting at home after surgery not really being able to Don anything and all the TV shows is commercials about food. It passes...

    What am I thinking?!

    Congratulations on your weight loss. If you can master this new lifestyle you can do anything. Go for it! I don't know anyone who has regretted it. Good luck and hoping for a smooth recovery.

    Eat popcorns or not after gastric bypass surgery

    Corn is a major no in my program. I said goodbye to it before surgery. Good luck.
  5. I hope you can forgive and forget. Family is family. Be proud you took this journey and obviously are rickin' it! Tell them you have made a major lifestyle change and move on.

    At Richmond they just assigned us surgeons we didn't pick. But in my support classes I've heard people rave about your Dr. Hahn.

    At Richmond you weigh in at orientation and that is your starting weight. After that you are required to lose or maintain every time you come in. I didn't have to lose 10%. I had to lose 12 pounds. I ended up losing 22.

    spray tan

    I'm so glad you did it! They see people all day with better bodies and worse bodies. They really don't care. And if you said you lost x amount of pounds she'd probably be like "go girl!"

    Deviled Eggs

    I made deviled eggs with a small amount of mayo. Also used cottage cheese once or twice.

    I went through Kaiser Richmond. Orientation, met with surgeon to get goal weight, shrink evaluation, I think there was four classes and then got my date. Started November 18th and surgery was February 15th.

    Eating out

    I say I had a large breakfast and order soup or lie and say that my stomach is upset .

    Ladies only please!!!!!!

    I stopped the pill before surgery and started depo. I've been spotting for two weeks and it's driving me crazy. On the pill I was like clockwork and it only lasted three days.

    Week 9 post op....

    I feel the same way. If I didn't have the five scars I wouldn't think anything was done. I'm now 5 weeks out and at 21 pounds.

    A week and 1/2 post op

    I was perfectly capable of going back to work a week after surgery. I took my whole four weeks just to get used to not eating. Not socializing around food. Getting used to watching food commercials and knowing I couldn't have it. Crazy for sure!

    Tuna in puree stage?

    I started having tuna with a tiny amount of mayo about two weeks post op. I had no issues with it. Good luck.
