    I'm so, so sorry for your loss. That has got to be really hard. People seem to really only think about what the mother of the child is going through. The rest of the family goes thought devastating greif & loss too.
    Please find someone to talk to or a support group to help you get throught this.

    Is this what your doc recommended to use? I have never heard of it before. I think most of us just used broths, juices or a Protein Shake.

    I loved reading your story. Thanks for sharing it with us.
    food is always gonna be a struggle, surgery just helps you get to your goal faster. Just like an alcoholic has to remain sober.
    Obesity is a disease. Please follow all of the guidelines that your surgeon gives you!!!
    I wish I would have never let sugar & alcohol back into my life. I am struggling so much right now.

    Best of luck to you.

    Maybe your pouch just isn’t ready for that stage. Or maybe your pouch doesn’t like the brand of Protein you are giving it.
    It’s. Ok to stay in stage 3 for a little bit longer.

    Dust yourself off. Just don’t do it again.
    Continue to weigh your food so you don’t over eat.

    To never even test your new self to see if you can have sugar ever again! I’ve slipped back into my horrible eating habits & have gained 25 lbs. I’m so upset with myself & I’m having a hard time getting back on track. Those food & alcohol demons will always be with me!

    Hospital check list: chapstick, toiletries, own pillow, slippers or slide on sandals, phone charger, wear same comfy clothes home that you wore to the hospital.

    Being tired is a very typical symptom for anyone with rapid weight loss after a surgery! Our bodies are going through a major change right now!

    Consult with your surgeon, but my bet Is that he will tell you that is normal.

    Give yourself some love by not trying to do so much. Your body is still in recovery mode. It will get better & then you will have way more energy then you have had in a long time!
