  1. I still drink them almost everyday. Like you I'm busy and sometimes it's just so convenient.

    Tears of Joy Finally!Rave!

    Congratulations! Go kill it today 😁
  4. I went up and down throughout the six months and ended up losing a paltry 1/2 lb. I was one who had a lot of food funerals because that's how I always did it before all of my big Monday diets I started in my past. It was my final farewell to all of my favorite foods. I don't recommend it though because it kept me from getting to my goal sooner. I'm always impressed with the ones who, even though they knew help was coming, didn't give in to the food funerals and actually lost quite a bit of weight pre op.

    Pain - 2 months after surgery

    It could be the nerves growing back together.

    Do you know your bougie size?

    Now you have something new to ask your Dr. That is if you care to know 😊
  8. It's not a guarantee you won't get gerd after getting the sleeve. That being said I also had heartburn at the end stages of both my pregnancies and the occasional heartburn after eating certain foods or overeating right before bed. It never occurred when I was thin so I determined that the cause was the abdominal pressure. I have not had any reflux or heartburn since my surgery, not to say it won't happen in the future but so far so good. Talk to your Dr. in depth about your concerns and ask him/her how many revisions they've had to do because of gerd so you can make the most educated decision you can.

    Do you know your bougie size?

    It was just interesting in my reading on the subject that that was the case in some studies. The size isn't always the be all end all and sometimes smaller comes with more strictures and other complications. I'm just curious I guess. I asked a ton of questions and always meant to ask but it was one that always slipped my mind.

    Do you know your bougie size?

    I guess I should've talked to you sooner LOL! Thanks!
  12. One thing I wish I would have asked my Dr. before my surgery is what bougie size he was using for my sleeve. My restriction seems really good but it would be nice to know what size he used and I will be bringing it up at my next visit. Do you guys know yours?
  13. I add them to my bcaas for the collagen which seems to help my skin.
  14. No, I haven't tried that brand. I use Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate. I like the protein content of the bulletproof!

    I do a 40/40/20 split which is 80g protein/80g carbs/18g fats on an 800 calorie diet. The general split is 50/30/20 but my body hates carbs even though I love them.
