  1. I'm looking for vitamins in pill form. What do you all take? I currently am taking Bariatric Advantage Chews for my Multi, and Calcium. but i cant barely stomach those anymore. Its easier for me to just take pills.

    Seasonale Birth Control

    SO i went to my OBGYN yesterday and wanted to get on Birth Control. I wanted something where i would have less periods and lighter flow. She suggested Seasonale. I had already done some research and this is the one i was interested in. When i got my notification from Walgreens that it was ready i was shocked to see that is was $175.00! Now it is for 91 days, but still i wasn't expecting that all. Anyone else on it and pay that much or have any idea how to get it a little cheaper??? Also, would like some feedback if you like it, or not.

    Massive gut not shrinking

    I'm struggling with the same thing. I've noticed it has gotten smaller some, and its where i carried most of my weight as well. At 57lbs down people are really starting to notice so it makes me feel good and not dwell on my pudge lol

    Ice cream or sweets

    Halo top. There are so many flavors to choose from. I tried the cookies and cream, which was good, but kinda blah. I added a little sugar free chocolate syrup and it helped.

    Who else was sleeved in dec 2017

    I was sleeved 12/29/17 and down 43 lbs since surgery and 51 since pre op. I think your doing great. Everyone looses at different rates, What was your Surgery weight?
  12. First off, Congratulations! That's a great accomplishment. I can definitely relate. BUT, It felt so rewarding to try on something in my closest that was a little tight pre surgery and fit comfortably it really gave me the satisfaction that what im doing is working. Number on the scale may not have been moving as much but the inches were coming off. It was some re assurance. I say, go for it. You will be happy you did.
  13. I'm in the same boat! Scale is all over the place, I am so eager to get to ONDERLAND I should have known i would have this stall right before. Hang in there, Your doing everything you need to be doing.

    Super Bowl food!

    2 very small squares. and i just ended up eating mostly the topping. I kept the lid on so it made the bottom a little soggy.

    Super Bowl food!

    This was my superbowl snack. Where's the crust pizza. Low carb and helps the pizza craving. It was really good.
  24. I had my VSG on 12/29/17. Surgery went really well and recovery was a breeze for me. BUT, i am feeling really frustrated with how slowly my weight is coming off. I am down 31lbs since pre op, 23lbs since surgery, and I know that is a good amount of weight lost for the first month. I have a appt on 2/13 with my surgeon and he wanted me down to 205 at this appointment. Thats 19lbs that I have to lose in 2 weeks! I thought i would already be down 10 lbs these last 2 weeks, but i had a stall on week 3/4. I'm following my diet and working out at least 2 days a week. I work 2 full time jobs basically so getting to the gym is very hard. I guess i'm just needing some advice, words of encouragement or anything to makes me stop freaking out about this goal my surgeon is wanting me at.
