    2 week stall?

    Change up your diet a little
  2. It took me almost 12 years to figure out why I wasn’t able to lose and was only gaining after living my whole life like a twig until I was 29...GIRLS let me tell you the surgery has been a life and sanity saver! I would do it again even with horrific complications post surgery...or whatever happened... my life is almost normal again like it was 15 years ago.

    slow loss?

    Thanks for the pep talk! 💕

    slow loss?

    I am one year PO...that isn't saying I am not opposed to different information 😉

    slow loss?

    don't get me wrong, I am thrilled to have lost what I have...trying not to feel like a failure...I doooooooo know what I have to do lol

    slow loss?

    I do know lately I have slacked on my good/better eating habits so hopefully it will get back on track....

    slow loss?

    anyone else losing really slow? I have two friends that had their surgeries in November and have lost way more than me. one wasn't much bigger than me but she is down way more than I am. happy for them tho!!

  11. there has been no straight answer...so im going to get my records. I cannot imagine what my momma was going through...
  12. it had gathered in my colon I think. when I thought I had to poo it was straight blood.
  13. they should have caught the bleed before sewing me up...my mom is traumatized and my two kids are having a hard time. im just glad im on the mend. thank you all or your well wishes!!!!
  14. well for some reason it wasn't letting me quote anyone...but here it goes... I have been thinking of how I would tell my story. It isn’t the normal story. It isn’t a happy one. On Thursday, May 31st, I had RNY bypass surgery. I stayed the night in the hospital and was released the next day in the late afternoon. I went home, my kids happy to see me and that the surgery was over, and I felt the same. My mom took them to eat bc I fell asleep in the recliner, and why would she think I wasn’t able to walk since I was walking earlier in the day. I woke up to get my dogs some food…I was super weak in the legs and when I turned around to get back in the chair I fell straight back on my tile floor. I peed myself…I don’t think I passed out really but I defiantly lost my bearings. Of course “hey siri” wasn’t responding so I had to find my phone in a haze. I crawled my way to the bathroom…I actually thought I did more than pee myself but when I checked my pants it was a huge blood clot and fresh red blood…and then a ton more in the toilet. I tried to call a couple of friends that I assumed would be in town but were out for the evening so I called my mom away from dinner. When she arrived she saw what state I was in (pale and bleeding) she immediately tended to me and my 11 year old son cleaned up my urine... he never should have ever had to do that! My mom frantically trying to clean me up and figure out what to do, I somehow had enough wits about me to tell her to dial 911… When the paramedics arrived I was a light, light beige color and barley a pulse. My veins were so collapsed they couldn’t start an IV …they were struggling….my pulse was super faint and and blood pressure almost bottomed out. I ended up losing more than half my total blood volume. 4 bags of blood and 2 bags of plasma later. I’m alive. Not the way the surgery was supposed to go. I am home now, having some double vision so its been hard to see my phone so I had wait until I was more alert and with my computer. So tomorrow is one week since my surgery.
