    Been stalled for 3 weeks now at 228. HW 270 SW 248. I went back to the basics and hope that this will pass soon and I will start dropping lbs again. The inches are coming off in the meanwhile so that makes me happy.

    Coconut oil and tea tree oil for the pits.
  3. At 4 weeks I am down 15 lbs from surgery date.
  4. I am 4 weeks post op and am still very sore. I just ordered a compression garment from amazon after it was suggested on a post. I hope it gives me some relief.

    Drinking tea

    I meant tea shouldn’t cause a stall😬

    Drinking tea

    I think I would depend on if you were using sweeteners and how much in your tea. The tea itself should cause a stall. Sometimes or bodies need recalibration time.
  7. I am a firefighter. I am 4 weeks out and still have a great deal of incision pain. I am shooting for another two weeks or so to get back to work. I have lost some strength that needs to get rebuilt but other than those two factors, I feel good.
  8. Butternut squash soup with a scoop of genepro powder was a go to. Veggie chili made with black beans, lentils and soy grounds.
  9. It’s for you and you are worth it. Under standing obesity, physiology and psychology will help your dear sister understand the complexities of weight loss. She should take several seats and educate herself before popping off.
  10. Not everyone deserves your whole truth.
  11. They did check for nicotine in the blood before approval and before surgery. I used e-cigarettes and stepped down nicotine to zero and then just saw it as pointless after I kicked the nicotine part. Best of luck to you.

    4 weeks post op on Monday. Is anyone else still having a hard time with incision pain. I am still very sore. My surgeon didn’t seem to think it was any reason to be concerned but I still have a hard time getting in and out of the car.

    This podcast is amazing. It is full of all kinds of information and support. It is hosted by a nurse practitioner who is dedicated to her patients and understanding/fighting obesity.
  14. You did it for yourself and you are worth it.

    Abdominal pain

    I am three weeks out and that is my biggest complaint. I am still really sore at my large incision site. Almost all movement has me in pain. Getting out of bed, up from a seated position and bending or twisting is extremely uncomfortable. The waist binder works well to hold everything together but u am still moving slowly because of the pain. Tylenol helps but I don’t want to take it everyday. 😕
