    april042019 got a reaction from Deedee12 in Shopping NSV!!   
    Heyy guys! I hope everyone's doing well!
    I have good news! It may not be much but I'm super excited so i'm sharing!!
    So for a while now I've only been wearing leggings because my old size 24 jeans had been slipping off so much and became impossible to wear. Anyway, even my leggings (3x) became too baggy for my liking so I decided to go shopping! I was at costco and they had these cute leggings with pockets that I loved but the only size left was an XL and they also had these turtle neck shirts that are really cute and only $5 but only had an XL as well so I got them both thinking that I could probably wear them in a month or two when they'd fit. I also went to the mall and got two pairs of jeans, a 16 (that I thought would BARELY fit) to wear now and a 14 to wear in a couple months.
    When I got home I tried them all on, including the size 14 jeans I bought for later and GUESS WHAT! They all fit perfectly!! SO EXCITED!! 😁
    (sorry for the cropping and coloring my room's a mess and so are my toes 😂 😬)

    april042019 got a reaction from KarenLR75 in So what are you unable to eat now?   
    I can't tolerate bread and anything with fat in it. I ate two bites of a grilled chicken wing the other day and went straight to the bathroom to vomit. I felt like hell for hours.
    Bread makes me extremely uncomfortable for about 30-45 minutes after eating it but eventually goes away.
    I had halo top ice cream and had no problems with it at all.
    I guess it just depends on each person.
    Good luck!! ❤️

    april042019 got a reaction from Msbosse in Changed from Sleeve to RNY Bypass   
    I think you'd have to take Vitamins with the sleeve as well. I might be wrong but that's what I've always heard.
    I started off wanting the bypass. I knew it was more complex but to me surgery is surgery so if i'm already going to have one it might as well be the one I felt was right for me. I still stand with my decision to have the bypass so no regrets here!
    I too was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up with the vitamins. I never could before. But I think just knowing how serious this is and that I HAD to take them made me stay on top of them. I also downloaded an app called Medisafe and it's honestly so great it always reminds me when to take them so I never forget!
    Good luck! ❤️

    I agree with everyone that replied. I found a book titled “Bariatric Mindset Success” by Kristan Lloyd and it really digs into the emotional part of this journey. She is very relatable because she has had the surgery. I originally bought the book as audible and listen to it at work, but since I like it so much, I bought the paperback.
    Check it out you won’t be disappointed.

    I feel you! I wish I hadn't told a lot of people. Still, this isn't about them or their opinions. It's about you and what you think it right for you. They don't know what you've been through or what your day to day struggles are. Even if they love you and mean well, they still don't know. So don't worry about what anyone else thinks. You are the one living your life right now and you're the only one who knows what it's like and what it needs.
    Good luck! ❤️

    Honestly if I were you I'd go on with the surgery and try to use their bad (maybe not bad but difficult) experiences as a lesson. Now you know if you were to have the surgery done you would have to keep up with your Iron supplements and monitor your levels! And you also know that to be successful after surgery you would have to learn how to change your lifestyle! These are great pieces of advice, I think.
    I'm only about five months out and I haven't had any problems yet. I hope I never do. But I'm still always asking others about their experiences so I could know what to do and what to avoid. I don't regret my surgery at all I think it's the best thing I could've done for myself. I actually wish I had done it a lot earlier but at least I finally did get it.
    You sound like you've been determined to have it done for the past few years. If you really want it I think you can definitely make it work for you!
    These are just my opinions. It's up to you! ❤️

    ^I agree. I remember just a week or so after surgery I went to the grocery store with my mom and I saw a reallly good looking broccoli cheddar Soup and told my mom that I wish I could eat it but i can't ( I was still on Clear Liquids I think ). My mom went and picked up the soup and took it home for herself and just kept eating it in front of me. I knew it was my problem and that she shouldn't have to restrict herself in front of me but it just hurt me that she didn't care. So yeah it would be nice if you didn't do that.
    Also this site is amazing so if you need to know anything you can always post and ask!
    Good luck to you and your wife! ❤️

    I'm not a huge ice cream fan but when I crave it I'll eat some halo top (I always keep some in the freezer). I don't like to restrict myself too much on certain foods because then I'll overeat something else to try to compensate for the disappointment. Lol my logic might be weird but it works for me.

    Hey guys!
    Just wondering, how many calories do you eat a day (on average)? and how far out are you? Also, how many times a week do you workout and for how long?
    I eat about 500 cals a day and work out 3 times a week ( I try to burn 800 cals every workout )
