  1. Hi! I posted this in the Gastric Bypass forum but I thought I should post it here as well. The surgery type isn't important. I am a little more than 13 months post-op. Have lost 95 pounds but have stalled for a few months, and have had some bumpy roads getting here (serious double pneumonia for one). I would LOVE a buddy/partner (or buddies/partners - the more the merrier!) to help each other along the way - for support, common sense (i.e. "don't eat that Twinkie!"), all around motivation and friendship. I'm 56, mom of 2 grown kids, a nana to 1. I'm fun and outgoing and a great friend! (I feel like I'm filling out an ad to get a date ☺️) If anyone is interested - please let me know! Oh, I have about 50 pounds or so left to lose. Someone around the Baltimore area would be AWESOME - but via text, Facetime, whatever is great too. ❤️

    July surgery

    @kristinolivia I do that too - looking at the countdown makes it seem so much more real. And sooner! I'm the day after you. The best to you 👍

    July Gastric Bypass?

    I'm sorry for whatever you've been struggling with. 8 years is a long time! Honestly, without a lot of stress I've gained about that much in a year (after losing as much just as quickly). I'm 55 and wish I'd done this a long time ago. So many wasted moments just because I wasn't able to do something physically. I totally understand about wanting to be active. I've become a hermit this past year. My mom died in March, and I've just put on more weight. We need to make this work, and get out there and live.

    Hey!! I'm from Phoenix originally. Miss the mountains. Anyway, congrats on the weight you've already lost! Do you feel ready? I am SO ready.

    Everything I've tried has been really good. I, too, LOVE the salad dressing, especially the raspberry vinaigrette. I'm not sure you can beat the flavor for what the calories are!

    Do you have to have another endoscopy (I assume how they saw the liver) prior to clearance? I would imagine your doctor estimated how much time you would need before surgery. I'm one of few that wasn't told to be on a liquid diet. I need to now because my "last supper" which lasted the past few weeks has me up 10 pounds. I'm the same way, though, I worry about everything. I still have to get clearance from the cardiologist and take a stress test the day before surgery. Crazy! Hang in there.

    8week out still nausea and vomiting

    No suggestion from your doctor? Maybe you're taking in too much at once? Total guess - I have no idea. But they should give you some guidance. Bless your heart. I hope you feel better.

    A lot of you seem to be having surgery on the 26th. I've only found one person having it on the 24th (like me). Anyone else? Best of luck to everyone!! Heading for the Loser's Bench

    PS - Me too about the "eat this now..." which is a terrible, dichotomous view that has plagued me my whole life. I am so ready!!
  15. Good for you! That whole age thing - what the hell? People are living longer and longer. Why should someone's life in their 70s be less valuable or satisfying than someone in their 40s? Or ANY age. I'll be having mine at St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, MD by Dr. Andrew Averbach. He's the big kahuna of bariatrics there. Good for us! Keep in touch!
  16. 55 (when did that happen??) and having RNY July 24. Wish I'd done this 30 years ago!
