    Clothing Rollercoaster

    I am currently a year out 110 pounds down and really thought I was done losing. So disappointed because all my clothes are hanging off again. Currently 172 pounds. I really don’t want to buy clothes again. Really didn’t want to keep losing either but I guess it’s what I signed up for. My goal weight has changed multiple times. Sounds like I’m complaining, and I guess I am a little. Didn’t expect to be skinny. Just a healthy weight for me.
  2. Had to get my love to dig in his phone for pictures b/c I don’t have any of myself. I don’t like taking them really. Anyway HW:282 SW:247 Cw:179. My goal weight was 180 but I changed that to 170. Most recent pic is from May at 185. My doctors are expecting 155-160. However I don’t think that will look good. I kind of got into it with his assistant who thinks I’m hindering myself from getting to that number. I could be 🤪haven’t been that weight since I was in my 20’s.

    Eating & pain

    It is hard and exhausting. Doctors and other patients make it sound easy however it isn’t. You have to really want it but you can get there.

    Eating & pain

    Sounds like your eating past full. I too have done this. Only took for it to happen once for me to understand that I was over doing it.

    LADIES ONLY! Period after vsg

    I’m gonna say it’s that IUD. Had mines for 7months before I got rid of it. Longer and heavier periods along with major crap. But to be safe I would speak with your doctor.

    Acid reflux & sleeve

    I have reflux issues big time. I’ve never had it before my sleeve. Boy does it suck!🥴
  7. Frmamomzeyez


    Let me start by saying I am still so very happy I had the surgery. If I could go back I would still have the surgery. However this surgery has made me HATE FOOD. Everything I eat gives me acid. I never had acid reflux before. IT SUCKS!! I don’t want to eat because of it. If I could go through life without food I would at this point. Water doesn’t even taste the same to me anymore. Uggh. Thankful for my surgeon and his team because so far the surgery has made my body much more healthier. My new take on food though is... it would be nice if we could live without it.

    When does it stop!

    Everyone is different. I was back to myself after 2 weeks. But once I started eating normally I would have pain on my upper incision near my stomach again. It will get better. Take it Day by day, week by week you will feel the difference. And it will all be worth it in the end.

    I see my surgeon in two weeks for a full work up. Hopefully they discover something that needs to fixed. I can’t live like this anymore. Completely annoyed with food.

    800 Calories Per Day

    I’m 4 months out and eating about 500-800 calories a day. I was told by my surgeon not to go over 800 a day. Currently 209 started at 282 surgery weight 247. Currently not exercising.

    I had surgery on 8/13 also. Had a sleeve though. Feeling great minus the breakouts.

    August bypassers/sleevers

    How long have you been doing the whey protein isolate?? I’ve been doing it since my liquid diet because I’m not a fan of milk and neither is my stomach. My face however isn’t a fan of whey protein isolate. I feel like I’m going through puberty. So many breakouts and pimples. I really want to cry.

    Insomnia After Gastric Sleeve

    This must be a thing. I was sleeved on Aug 13 currently experiencing this. If I do get to fall asleep at night I wake up every hour on the hour. It sucks because I am sleepy I just can’t sleep. I have some serious bags under my eyes it’s horrible. Ugg going to cool my surgeons office today. This is so not cool.
  15. Wow... you are an inspiration and you are definitely a fighter. Sending good wishes to you on your surgery tomorrow.

    I wish there was a way to know what is best for each individual. My choice on the sleeve was because of iron deficiency, vitamin D deficiency and heavy cycles. I was worried the bypass would make these things much worse and cause other problems for me. I would have loved to do the bypass because it comes with more weight lost. My surgeon and I both agreed on the sleeve. However I’m not sure 🤔 it was the right choice. I started out at 280 lost 37 before surgery and would like to be 170. I’m currently 8 days out and worried because I havent lost a pound. Spoke with my doctor yesterday who says I may not be getting in enough liquids and calories to lose anything. So I am praying that I made right decision. I don’t want to be one of those people that needs a revision.

    How many days after surgery did you have your first poo? 

    The green veggies my surgeon had me eating before the surgery had me empty. I was running to the 🚽 with only diarrhea and boy was it gross(TMI Sorry). I’m worried about not going gonna call the office after tomorrow. I was told to give it a week. In the past not going would make me gain. Of course I’m still on only liquids and one protein shake a day. That could have lots to do with it also.
  18. Lucky you. I just realized I still have another week of liquids. Excited about all the things I plan to make for the purée stage. If you eat something solid you could potentially cut open your incision where your stomach was stapled back together. Which could cause complications.

    How many days after surgery did you have your first poo? 

    6 days post op. Still haven’t gone. It sucks I used to go every morning before work. Hoping I go soon
  20. I was given decaf tea in the hospital. My stomach wouldn’t tolerate anything cold. At home all I drink in peppermint tea. It doesn’t bother my stomach at all.

    August surgery ppl

    I have two waist trainers one with a zipper one clasped. Can’t wear them though 5 days post op and I still have a little belly pain. I think I will be able to wear them after next week. I wake up with less pain everyday.

    August bypassers/sleevers

    @sestewart17 wow I can’t wait to get there. Stuck on liquids until Monday. You are so lucky. Hoping it sits well for you too. I love hummus good choice. How are you feeling??

    August bypassers/sleevers

    Hey all had my sleeve Monday the 13th. After 3 days of pain and unable to keep water down I am feeling good. I have a little belly pain but nothing major. Having trouble getting in the 64oz of liquid. It is really hard for me. The nausea is completely gone. I just find it surreal. Just woke up and everything is over🤗. Happy, excited 😃 😜. I was feeling really down. For anyone who is post op just hang in there the pain and nausea will go away. For those of you that are pre op don’t let the pain from the first few days discourage you. I honestly did at first.
