    Worried about never reaching goal.

    Well I'm a man and much taller but I still made my goal and even went below my goal within the first year... But I had RNY bypass.... It is possible you just have to be vigilant...

    I personally chose the RNY as my first and only surgery and it has worked flawlessly for me
  12. Yes wait until you get the first weigh in and stuff before you worry about weight loss... I personally changed my diet from 2 months before surgery just for my own piece of mind and it worked out for me even the surgeon said I got a headstart on my weight loss and I've done really well lost all my excess weight... I personally just woke up one day and started on shakes and was only on like 500cal Max for a few months...

    Pandemic Check In

    I'm in Australia luckily In S.A so no restrictions as such.... I feel it gives me more time to prepare meals and plan meals... I'm only 9 months post op so don't get hungry much but to keep busy I'll binge on new TV shows Netflix and stuff.. Hopefully can start gym soon which will be good... Just need to find hobby to keep yourself busy

    No issue at all here with RNY but only 9 months out
  21. Hopefully your liver actually does shrink but you'll need to stop the junk food.... As above you'll need to completely change the way you eat for surgery or your surgery will be a waste of time mate. Throw out all the bad foods. Go buy good food and protein shakes... You need low carb. Low sugar. Healthy food now if you don't change your surgery won't help...
  22. I would ring your actual insurance first up then find out if you can even schedule a nutritionist straight away sometimes you have a wait list... It's all up to insurance not her, they are the ones paying and approving everything...

    PCP question

    You may need to do monthly weigh in or blood work and have history with a PCP for insurance
