  1. Never told people outside my family and no one ever commented on my portions. They knew I was trying to lose weight (which I was) so everyone was actually really supportive “let’s order from ___ instead of pizza so Jenn can eat with us”

    Lying about not getting surgery is awful

    As far as I’m concerned, it’s no one else’s business.

    Pizza at 7 or 8 weeks?

    I wouldn’t...avoid that stuff as long as possible.
  4. I overheard my sons baseball team (bunch of 12 year old boys) saying “wow, your mom looks great! She’s so healthy now!” The fact that they noticed says a lot
  5. I’d stay under 500 for the time being.
  6. Sleep apnea and my gallbladder
  7. Love my bypass, would do it again in a heartbeat. Fixed my reflux. Additionally, it’s really easy to control dumping. Don’t eat high fat or high sugar foods and you’re good
  8. You’ll be fine to care for yourself
  9. I had mine out at the same time, no biggie and I haven’t missed it
  10. Yeah! I Attended a party during pre-op too. It was so difficult but I felt empowered afterward! You did awesome, congrats
  11. I love how I look in clothes (for the most part) but naked I look wrinkly and saggy 🤣🤷🏼‍♀️
  12. I lost 130+ pounds (surgery was 7/10/18) and I’ve stuck to my lifestyle meal plan. I can’t eat sweet things anymore, they taste terrible to me. I drink a gallon of water a day, exercise 4-5 times per week and stopped using food as comfort

    Questions about Gastric Bypass Surgery

    1. Yes, but it’s really not a big deal unless you have trouble swallowing pills. 2. Yes, for a bit 3. Dumping for me is 💩 if I’ve eaten something with too much sugar. Rarely happens though bc I don’t really like the taste of sweets anymore 4. I don’t count my chews, it’s second nature now. But at the beginning I did 5. I can, but I don’t 6. Maybe 6 weeks 7. Approx 30 lbs 8. Is not about “being allowed” you are an adult and can eat whatever you want. There’s certain foods/textures I don’t like anymore, certain foods I can’t tolerate and certain foods I choose not to eat

    I loved my team, but honestly my surgeon was an ass. I met him once, for about 10 mins before my surgery day. However his abilities as a surgeon came highly recommended so I went with that. In retrospect it would have been nice to have had a better relationship with him, but I was more concerned with his surgical skills 🤣

    Celebrating my friend’s birthday today!
  17. I started with very similar stats, I do have some loose skin, but it’s 2718262282 times better then being fat

    Haven’t posted in ages. Seeing as schools as closed, most of my wardrobe consists of leggings or workout clothes. Decided to put “real people clothes” on today, had to mark this momentous occasion 🤣 (bypass, 7/10/18, down 130+ pounds)

    Needing a pep talk!

    What about an at home workout like beach body? Plus if you’re home (like I am) take that time to cook some great new recipes
  21. None of us thought we were “that big” you get used to seeing yourself a certain way. You need to have this surgery, but you also need to explore some therapy.
