    April 2019 Surgeries!

    @Tallymom I hope you’ve been doing well. I hope the frustration has passed. You are doing the best you can and changing your habits. I’m also trying to find where you responded to one of my comments but can’t seem to find it. You are so supportive to others, back yourself, you’ve got this. Thinking of you and wishing you everything. Love 💕

    @Alwzla8 I can only eat teeny amounts also. However I’m ok on getting protein drinks down. I have a tasteless protein powder and mix it with frozen raspberries, ice, carrot , celery and ginger juice. It’s delicious. But you can add it to anything hot or cold. I hope you’ve been doing ok.

    @Feeling_Sleevey I was 10th April. Each week things get easier/better with non weight loss achievements, reflux/heartburn. I’m so happy with what’s gone so far, yet still looking forward to more weight disappearing. I feel so much better, I feel a lot more able to be social. I so hope everyone is doing well, it’s such a journey and I’m so grateful for this forum. Take care, many blessings & love.

    Keep at it, a few weeks has passed and as long as it’s on it’s way down. I hope you are feeling well and happy. Take care.

    Surgery 10/4/2019 Since surgery I’ve lost 56.1 lbs... So far it’s given me relief from knee pain, can finally put shoes on more comfortably (my stomach/belly has shrunk so I can reach easily now), I’m able to do more during my days physically, still unfit though, very slowly regaining strength in my legs, sleeping better. That’s just a few. Definitely not hungry.

    I’m just wondering how anyone is going with acid reflux/heartburn? Dr gave me medication for this for the first month after surgery. And since I’ve finished it, it bothers me a little during the day and then at night time wakes me up. I’m hoping it’s not for life! (Catastrophysing) I hope everyone is doing well. I’m struggling getting water down over the day. I know I’m dehydrated. Water needs to be attached to you on a camelback backpack. I also find it easier to have protein shakes than real food as real food still seems to sit a little uncomfortable and I can hardly eat anything if I do (which is obviously the whole point of the surgery!) hehe Anyway I’ve written far more than I thought. Take care everyone xo

    Hi 👋🏻 everyone! I haven’t posted in a while but have thought about everyone. Sending love and light to all. Remember it’s a process. Take your time. Be kind to yourself.

    I can’t date overweight people

    I laughed so hard at this, because I relate to the whole dating process. Not that I’ve done much dating in the last couple of years. But I’ve certainly said to myself no one will want me while I’ve been larger. I’m an odd female, never married no kids. And don’t count/want to have any, just due to being nearly 46. Seems way too crazy to have kids now and not with someone anyhow. I sometimes think I’ll be alone forever now. But I do hope I meet someone to have as a special friend that I spend time with who becomes a partner. But I slightly err on the side of I can’t see it happening... since it hasn’t happened thus far. And I know I’m someone who has some shit, but it’s mine and I own it. I’m very young at heart and have a lot to give. I hope the right person comes along in some random way for everyone at the ‘right’ time or when least expected.

    How are you @CajunSam ? I hope all is well.

    Oh, @SusieQ2019 glad you’re doing well. Your cat sounds so sweet, trying to look after you and give you comfort. Slowly slowly it goes with being able to get food down & H2O. Keep up the self care and positive vibes lovely. (Not sure how long since your surgery) I’m 3 weeks. Take care.

    I second this. I’m loving hearing everyone’s updates. I’m wishing the best for all of us. I’m so glad this forum is here. So lucky to be able to share stories and not feel alone.

    Wow, that’s interesting. I didn’t ever scratch in my sleep. Was just worried I might when they weren’t fully closed yet. Also I had oxy each night and slept quite well. I hope you’re doing well @Tallymom hope your pain eases up. Mine is nearly all gone. I haven’t taken anything for pain in almost two weeks. Starting to get slightly more food in (in terms of being able to get a whole yoghurt down that’s high in protein!) I’m also concentrating on getting in my H2O. I feel the odd low on energy feeling which has to be not enough water not enough calories. I think. But otherwise all feeing well and I’m so happy with the difference in how I feel with the weight that has gone. I feel so lucky, but also too like everyone else, it’s been a plan and doing bits each day to gain success in getting healthier. Much love.

    Oh, and also the elastoplast/bandaids made me itchy I think too, the sticky glue stuff. I ended up with a rash. Which I put Sudocream on, it’s a high zinc nappy rash cream that is really soothing. Wherever you are I’m sure they have something like it. Three weeks out and I still have faint marks from the rash.
