    Food Before and After Photos

    Looks so good 👩🏽‍🍳💋
  2. Like weight loss before and after photos but of your new diet ! I'm especially interested in before and after meal photos (take a pic at the point you feel restriction) but it can be of recipe substitutions, your refrigerator/pantry/shopping cart/etc VSG2017 HW 249 SW 238 CW 167

    Fried foods

    I can tolerate all fried food just fine with one caveat - I don’t really like them anymore. #Irony 😩

    Do you see your surgeon annually?

    Yes. I have telehealth appointment. I like to check in and see how I’m doing because some changes are expected at different year marks (possible regain, etc) Also I can ask questions I really want the answers to (like do I still have to separate food and drinks, etc.) and discuss if things I’ve noticed are normal.

    Pre-op doubts

    Sorry for your experience. But I do think it’s helpful that you highlighted some of the serious questions about preparedness to consider before surgery. Hopefully all goes well for you.

    Any revision surgeries on here?

    It’s up to the discretion of the surgeon (and severity of the GERD) I think the weight requirement is not the main qualifier when revising for GERD.

    Any revision surgeries on here?

    I was also converted from VSG to RNY because of GERD (and other things) but not for additional weight loss. 2+ yrs later GERD is still gone which is a major win!

    Gained a few pounds back

    There’s a lot of research to suggest that most people will not stay at their lowest weight (Of course there are exceptions). Small gains/fluctuations are expected and likely out of our control. I think the goal is to try to prevent larger gains that can happen from lifestyle. Congrats on your success so far!

    Pre-op doubts

    I’ve done both with absolutely no issues.

    Pre-op doubts

    In Dr. Wiener’s latest videos (I still watch him 3+ yrs out from WLS) he discusses who he believes would benefit most from WLS (obesity since childhood, genetic obesity- other family members who are obese, people with good diets, etc.) Surprisingly, he also believes that WLS not for everyone. With so much seemingly conflicting information available, having doubts are natural especially when you are seeing results without WLS. A couple of questions I would ask myself if I was in your position are: Was losing the weight this way relatively hard or easy? Could I really stick to these changes for the next 5-10 yrs? What are my contingency plans if diet/lifestyle changes are not enough? Do I fall into the good candidate for WLS category? Should I pass up this opportunity even though it may not come again? Good Luck !

    Food Before and After Photos

    Surprisingly good grilled chicken tenders from Cracker barrel (the creepiest decorated chain Restaurant IMHO 😅) This is a “during” pic as I remembered to take it after I began eating. Missing from the photo are the mashed potatoes. Plenty of leftovers ,possibly two more meals

    Eating out

    I usually get soup if I eat at Panera. I really liked the turkey chili. Here’s a link to their nutritional information https://www.panerabread.com/content/dam/panerabread/documents/nutrition/Panera-Nutrition.pdf
