    I take 1000-1500mg of turmeric via capsules just about every day with no problem. I started back again with that regimen about 3 months out. **I have mild HS (hidradenitis suppurativa) on the lower part of my pits though**
  2. First time seeing this thread. It's the 27th. I haven't skipped to the 3rd page but I hope you got the surgery yesterday.

    What I have learned over 1 1/2 years.

    Yep...it def differs. Flip side 800-900 wasn't working for me after a while (about like 4-5 months)...I had to actually up my calories to 1000-1200 to see more consistent weight-loss. The further out I got I needed a bit more calories to actually lose. It could change again...i'm only about 7.5-ish months out.
  5. Small amounts cooked broccoli, popcorn, rice (brown rice) and regular coffee.

    5 days pre op and suddenly woke up with monthly friend

    I had no warning 😐😫 .... there was nothing not even tender nips or anything and then....it was like Carrie down there. Good luck. I got the IUD to keep the ladytime away (in addition to no babies). I see my Gyno again in April....we need to talk lol.

    Protein was primarily my plan's focus the first few months (60-80g for women, 70-100 for men). They didn't talk about carbs too much until I finally got into the 'Regular/Forever' foods stage. Now...they tell me up to 50g of carbs is okay.

    I take acetaminophen (Basic Care or name-brand Tylenol) or low-dose Bayer aspirin with no issue.

    Go to meal

    A chicken thigh or 1-2 small wings and a veggie medley (broccoli, cauliflower, carrot mix) I find to be an easy go to meal. Close 2nd would be the same veggie mix but with a small piece of pork tenderloin.

    No goal weight?

    I understand that. Personally my brain NEEDS a number to look forward to but to like you said not add too much pressure on myself I've made mini goals. My first was 250, then 210, then my doctor's goal of 180, then my own of 165 and hopefully/eventually 145. Little baby steps.

    How much sugar caused you to dump?

    Sometimes VERY little will make me feel sick......like a little 25 cent gumball. But...i've been able to handle a grande White Mocha from Starbucks with full milk with no problem (I've ONLY done that twice for any food police out there lol).

    No goal weight?

    Well I did but....my surgeon didn't. I had to kind of "force" him to give me a number lol. He FINALLY said he'd be happy if I reached low 180's but that low 170's would be even better. My personal happy range is 145-165 or a loose fitting size 8 (or Medium) whichever comes first :).

    Gastric Bypass for Senior Citizen

    I recall the oldest person in a lot of my classes when I was pre-op was 68 ..... so your being 65 is not too old at all.

    Thank you SO MUCH for all of this! I've bought a few things off of Amazon but since I haven't been on here in a bunch of months i'm catching up. Looks like I have a little bit of shopping to do :). I hope you've been doing well! I've missed the site and most of the people lol :).

    Exactly. I love when people get it instead of people trying way too hard not to.
