    Totally normal. I didn't feel restriction until I hit solid foods. I feel restriction like crazy now. I can be full from one piece of string cheese, or a small pickle... Etc. for hours. I think liquids and purees to some extent are like slider foods.

    Very typical and not talked about enough. However you can still feel fullness just of a different kind. Occasionally I can still feel the VSG restriction with very solid things. But now it’s mostly a lower abdomen heaviness and disinterest in the food that warns me when I’m done. Be patient and you’ll notice your signals eventually ❤️

    gahvi got a reaction from logicwand in Your Feet & Shoe Size ?   
    I’m just 6 months post op and I went from a size 11 Wide to a 10 regular. It’s good that I’m not restricted to the Wide sizes as there’s a bigger variety of shoes I can now choose from.

    gahvi got a reaction from Hop_Scotch in Dr Vuong seminars, who has been, what are they about?   
    Dr. Vuong is filming a reality show about weight regain after WLS or something like that.

    He’s on Instagram promoting it. I watched some of his early videos when researching WLS. His cursing really made me stop watching his videos and the fact that half of the things he recommends my doctors did not recommend. I do realize all doctors have different plans, but chose not to watch his videos based on that.

    Hello everyone
    I've been MIA for awhile because I was to lazy to locate my login information. Lol! All is well though. I'm almost 2 years out and I still love my mini bypass. I currently weigh129lbs and I'm still losing weight. Here's a before/after pic. The 1st one was taken 2 days after surgery in Tijuana. My after pic was taken November 2018. I'm glad to be back. Pleae let me know if you have any questions regarding MGB

    I also get the feeling he's a failed surgeon. Don't know if it was fallout from his League City TX practice? Or if it was more. But on his healthgrades he got pisspoor ratings. So I wouldn't go to him and let him cut on me!
    I used to love his "head" work vids on YouTube, but dunno about now. Haven't seen too much to keep me coming back for more. Think he fell into the dark hole of "Tony Robbins" motivational speaker show ponies wannabees. I also don't see that he's practicing in Arizona anymore at the Lovelace Clinic?

    I used to follow him on YouTube but he started moving away from bariatric related videos and started pushing what seems to be pyramid scams. He was a funny guy but he's changed directions lately with his product sales.

    Freeze a Protein Shake and pretend it's ice cream!!! You don't need that jerk, you are going to move on and find someone who loves the whole package. 😍 My ex told me I was getting too fat (right after having a baby!) and he left me. Best damn thing that could have ever happened!

    I am so sorry. But let me tell you. Surgery is a tool and you get out of it what you put into it. I am down 120lbs since March 22, 2018. Changed my eating habits, portion sizes, no alcohol and nothing fried. I walk a lot but not exercise in the gym but want to start that to tone up. Prove him wrong! Do it for you and no one else. Be the best you for you! Take care... let him see what he is missing out on

    I don't work out often, but I make an effort to walk.
    I don't have a ton of restrictions on certain things. They're my sliders. I do eat salads in an effort to balance my choices. I indulge when I want but otherwise I have a pretty boring clean diet.
    I eat around 800- 1000 intermittent fasting days, 1400 when counting non intermittent fasting days, who knows when I don't count.
    Have you checked in with your NUT for a new plan lately?

    Yikes! I guess this was partly why I was so blunt and open about the whole thing. I’d rather people have the correct information than speculate.

    That said, it really is no ones business what we do with our bodies, let alone their place to comment on them. We do not owe them explanations or justifications for our appearance/decisions.

    This is one thing that grinds my gears a bit. Just because I’m open about having surgery, does not mean it’s open season on commenting about my body. 🤬
