    Where are my water guzzlers?

    I'm so glad to know that I am not alone. 3 weeks out on Wednesday & I don't have issues swallowing. I got to wondering if my pouch is bigger than normal since I have no issues? Could this be why? or am I just paranoid? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I will be 3 weeks out on Wednesday & I've wore mine constantly. I did remove it to wash it and could tell the difference in aches while moving around, bending etc. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

  4. Hi there. 5 days post op. I have no issues with getting my Protein and liquid down, just the opposite I can still take bigger drinks. Is this something to worry about? It makes me wonder if my pouch is bigger? Also I have had no nausea. I am experiencing sharp stabbing pain by my incision sight-it appears when i try to move. I am also experiencing gas pains. How long does the gas pain last? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  5. What kind of food processor do u use? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  6. I am right there with you. I am 4 days out, no issues with water or liquids, I just need to slow down when i drink them. No nausea. No hunger- I woke up 2day wanting a shake, but because it tastes different than water-I see that as more mental hunger. I don't know what full is- however I get these small burps so mayb that is what is telling me? I'm still having lots of pain from my large incision sight, but only when I'm moving around.I am having a hard time with bending over to pick something up. How did you handle this? Thanks for your time, glad to have made it to the Losers bench Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  7. After about 10-14 days they asked for more documentation that the Bariatric program sent in for me. I got approval within a couple of weeks. So definitely no longer than a month with Aetna

    "I think you're overdoing it"

    I am sorry that you are having to deal with something like this. I would think you would be getting support. I totally understand your frustration. I would be upset too. I think exercise is a wonderful coping mechanism. It helps relieve stress, it keeps you healthy, it helps clear your mind and it makes you feel good. What do they think you are coping from? I have the addiction gene in my blood, so I know all about wrong coping mechanisms. We all have life, and emotional stuff that we deal with. No matter how much exercise you do, if there are things you need to deal with they will still be there. Maybe they are just not used to the new you? They don't know what to think or how to take it. As long as you are staying on your plan and exercising in a healthy manner, I wouldn't worry too much. Just let them know that this is the new healthy you and of course if you are dealing with anything else take care of that too.
  9. 3 days to go & I will be sitting  on the losers bench! So ready for this journey

      Yay! Congrats on your upcoming surgery!

      Yay!!! You're a rockstar and doing so well!!! So excited for you!

  10. Thank You so so much! This is definitely my mindset. I am taking Short Term Disability & I don't plan on returning to work until I know my body is healed but also that my mind is ready as well. I definitely agree with New habits being the main objective this first year, with eating, exercise and also the emotional mental side. I am ready to get healthy and live my best life and I totally understand it depends on how well I follow the rules and use my tool.
  11. Thank You for this! I got a promotion in February and though it is more $ it came with higher stress. I'm still struggling to decide if I can adjust, or if I made the wrong decision and what my other options maybe. Add a new grandbaby to the mix and also a broken foot 5 weeks ago & My mentality has been off and I can tell of the imbalance. I definitely try as hard as I can to keep a good attitude but I know some mindfulness and meditation could definitely help. I am having surgery 31st July- Wednesday. My insurance allows me to collect short-term disability and I am not returning to work until I am mentally ready. I know there are going to be hormone changes along with all the other changes and I am wanting the best out of this experience so The head work is definitely very important to me.
  12. I am having surgery Wednesday 31July. I am wanting to use the tool as best as I can. I know we are all different and heal at different rates, but I am wondering... How soon after surgery did you start a exercise routine? What did it consist of?
  13. Day 10 of Pre-op diet. 3 to go plus one day of clear liquids. It's getting so close, I can taste it!

    It's been a while...

    Glad to hear you are feeling better. I am new here, having surgery on the 31st July. 6th day of my liver shrinking diet. Did you have any other symptoms adding up to the diverticulitis? I am super stubborn too and I've been reading up on what's normal, what's not, because I know I'm liable to think something is normal and it not be. Good to meet you
