    1year out, stomach pain?

    I am 2 years out and am experiencing similar pain. Did you figure out the issue? Thanks!
  3. Just a little word of advice for you. I made dinner tonight with my protein, green vegetable and as a treat a small potato. I waited too long to eat and as a result I ate too fast and ate the potato first. Big mistake as it made me sick. I am 5 months out and almost to goal. So bottom line is stick with the rules your surgeon and team put together. Good luck everyone! HW 213 Surgery date 6/12/17 weight 200 *current weight 158.4 * goal weight 145 I can do it!

    Blew it this week

    This post had perfect timing. After 2 days of eating whatever I wanted I woke up to a 4 pound weight gain. I actually cussed loudly when the number popped up. I need to stop that and get back on track.

    Food Funeral

    I had a little of a last fling before my pre op diet. I let myself have 3 not so healthy meals/drinks in the week prior. My big deal was when I invited the 3 friends who knew about my surgery over for a champagne brunch. I made tons of food and had lots of champagne. It was a great time and I don't regret it. The very next day I started the liquid pre op diet which is not that fun. Now I am a little over 3 months out. Things are going pretty good. It is good to start getting in a healthier mind set but enjoy yourself a bit too. This is not an easy fix as everyone on here knows. My suggestion is to listen to your doctor, listen to your stomach and don't put too much stock in other people's stories. Everyone is going to be different. Good luck and much success!
  7. I bought 2 cases of this on Amazon. The wild cherry and coconut. Both were really good.
  8. I clicked on your link and it states a price of $99. Is that the sale price?

    I could use help with My Head

    I have lost 33 pounds. 3 weeks ago at my check up the dr said the loss would slow down. He was right! Now I am losing about a pound or two a week. I was able to eat a normal diet starting week 8. My portions are just really small. I find it best to stay with tender and juicy meat. I had some small pork tenderloins that were a bit dry. They did not sit well. I feel better than I did a few weeks ago but still lack energy. I spoke to my nutritionist and she said I wasn't drinking enough water. Now I have started measuring and hope it helps. I have a male friend who had the surgery in October and is down 100 pounds. He said the key is being consistent with your protein and workouts. That is something I have to work on.[emoji3]

    I could use help with My Head

    I feel the same way. It is difficult to change a lifetime pattern. I am almost 3 months out and have yet to really go out with friends. I have taken my nephews out to eat a few times. It is a challenge because of food choice restrictions. Also I didn't realize how much I would miss beer. [emoji12] On the weekends when I went out with friends I would have a few beers. No more of that! I think about my bad habits and the excess weight and I am glad I had the surgery. However, it's going to be a huge adjustment. I too feel a little lost. Plus since I am single I worry about dating and meeting new people. I wish you luck! Hopefully we will all figure it out and be successful.

    root beer extract

    E The orange extract is good as well. Add it to vanilla and it's like a dreamcycle ice cream

    That moment you decided things had to change.

    So sorry for your loss. I lost my father 7 years ago mostly due to obesity related illnesses. He was 73 and now at 47 that seems so young. It took me a while to make the choice to change but I am glad I did. Good luck on your journey.
  14. I had pain after almost meal. My dr switched me from Pepcid to Prilosec. It really helped. It might be something to try. Good luck.
  15. Don't let him get to you. He has commented on a couple of my posts. I blocked him just now. He is always rude in my opinion. Have a great Friday.
