    one year surgerversary

    Wowwwwww you look fantastic!! Well done!!!!
  3. Snap! I'm 11 months out with Dr De Bruyne, so we have been on a similar journey. Although when the doc took it my blood pressure was normal, I have been getting orthostatic hypotension for the past few months so I do wonder if it's related. I've much improved since going keto so I just wonder if I've become ultra sensitive to carbs. It's a bit weird having changes this far out from surgery hey. Hope you feel better soon too!

    Yes when it comes to the Muslims. Those women love feeding people and don't understand when I don't want to eat their delicious home-baked goodies. They usually settle for letting me take away a goody bag for my fam. Others not so much 🤣

    He's a keeper my hubs. But I let him watch the sport on the telly afterwards 😆 (All Ireland Final Rematch, Dublin won). I have to say, while I enjoyed Downton Abbey it felt more like a Christmas special than a proper movie. But had a good time AND I didn't buy anything to eat and didn't even bother with the protein bar and keto crisps I brought.

    Good Morning Beauties! B-Side Question: Did you form any completely new habits pre/post op? Totally weigh and log everything. Swapped to skim milk in coffee (altho now on almond milk). Small plates and utensils mostly.

    Stopping Omeprazole-

    Don't ask me why but my (Belgian) doc put me on Omeprazole for life. I had a MGB which has a slightly higher risk of bile reflux.

    Now when I see MO people...

    You got this! Having that extra time to do head work will really pay off in the long run. And if you're evenly proportioned, please God you'll lose it proportionally as well 👍

    Oh it cuts to the quick!! I hear ya. If our societies didn't place moral worth judgements on people because we struggle with obesity, I'm sure there are many many many more people who would seek proper medical help and we would be able to recommend it without the stigma.
