    Treadmill vs running outside

    So...Im a student and just transferred. My new school has a gym where membership is included with tuition. I have a 2 hr break in between some classes and was considering restarting C25K. I LOVE running outside but i don't have time this semester. What is the difference? Is it just as good? Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Did you have to share a room in the hospital?

    I shared with another bariatric patient. The floor was for people specifically recovering from stomach and intestinal surgeries. I didnt hear any vomiting though. We were given quite a bit of anti nausea medication. Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Compression clothing?

    So I finished C25K! I then...injured myself and was doing walking only for a bit so I could still lose weight. Now I've started C210K (not continuing since i took a month off) and it is painful to run. The belly jiggle was just embarrassing before but now legitimately hurts. Same with doing non running cardio (jumping jacks, burpees, etc.) Has anyone had this problem and tried compression clothing? Does it help? Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    No pizza for 4-5 months???

    Yes but there are a lot of alternatives. Im 1 year post OP and still cant eat most breads (thin slice sprouted wheat is the only one really.) Cauliflower pizza is off the hook, healthier, and wont mess you up lol. Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Regrets???

    Yes but theyre small and i wouldnt have these regrets if i didnt start eating better (which i did because of surgery.) So not much of a regret as an "awww man!" For example. I recently tried asparagus for the first time. It was freaking amazing! Like wow i could eat this every week for a year lol. However i cant tolerate them at all.

    Marijuana Use Post-Op

    I started smoking again about two months after. No edibles as most are sugar filled (although I had mints that were ok.) I was starting to get hooked on oxy methinks so.... Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Post Surgery Tastebuds Changes: tell me yours

    I used to be a chocoholic. Now it's ok at best and usually only consumed as hot cocoa. I'm absolutely in love with salt. I wasnt into salt before. I don't like candy as much because it's too sweet! Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Aunt flo is killing me! Any advice?

    Like seriously! Pre surgery I was an avid blood donor. Now I'm constantly on the verge of needing a transfusion. I take around 90mg iron. I cant take birth control because of liver problems. I was thinking uterine ablation or something to help lighten it. Any advice? Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Has anyone tried Orange theory?

    Did you just ask for a blood specialist or were you referred? Sometimes requesting a specialist is a nightmare through my medical group ugh Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    I heard of some problems with Essure. My husband got a vasectomy instead but I'd get it if it meant I could be free from anemia Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Aunt flo is killing me! Any advice?

    I haven't had an increase in flow. It's my normal flow and I'm struggling with iron. I don't want any more kids. In fact my husband had a vasectomy. I hated being pregnant with a passion lol. Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Compression clothing?

    I had jeggings but I guess I lost enough weight to make them just pants lol. Then again loose skin wasn't an issue when I bought them Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Syntrax Nectar separating!

    I've looked up to see if any reviews state this problem but it seems to be only me! They're good...but then it separates! Like visibly. Am I doing something wrong? I'm talking about sitting for a minute or two, not like hours or anything. Wtf SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Vegan protein?

    Hi there! I had my 2 month follow up and my NUT told me that she knew someone that went vegan and it made their eczema flair ups to nothing! I'm considering it but... I'm allergic to nuts (tree and peanuts.) In fact, my current flair up is because I was eating protein bars not knowing they were full of nuts. I'm going vegetarian anyway because Meat doesn't sit right at the moment. I know beans are like protein magic but you can only have so much. Also what about probiotics? Is there a vegan version?

    Can we talk about boobs and bras?

    Why can't I lose weight there! I'm still a stupid triple D! With that said, I want to start running. Anyone have ideas for cheap bras or something to keep them from flying off into space while I jog? SW: 366 CW: 329 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

  24. I haven't but I was a huge Lactaid fan before surgery. They make a chewable tablet as well. Used to buy the generic and it wasn't too bad. SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!
