    Progress Pictures 💪🏻

    Thank you, cpgirl! 😊💙 I was never one to take full-body pictures, so I really only have this picture (from around surgery time) that my friend took of me 1 week before I started my Pre-Op Diet. I was 302 lbs at the time. I am currently 231.5 lbs 🤗

    I am currently 2 & 1/2 Months Post-Op (had surgery on 5/13/19). I am an Alumness Consultant to the Technology Student Association at my former high school, so I wore this today while volunteering at their Open House. I feel great! 😊
  9. Luckily, I hadn’t experienced any vomiting before this morning (I’ve also been feeling perfectly fine after the experience; I even went for a run). It appears that you have a tough stomach since you haven’t thrown up in more than 50 years, so I think that you should be fine! However, there will be some foods your stomach just can’t tolerate anymore. It’s too bad that there is no strict list of foods that we should know to stay away from, as all of our bodies react differently, so we all have to learn the hard way ☹️ Good luck on your surgery though! 😊
  10. The surgery forces us to make changes, even if we still want to hold on to some things 😭 I love pickles!
  11. Thank you everyone, for all of your responses! I just ate some salad and it went down without a problem. I am very convinced it was the pickle. Thank you, again! 😊
  12. Hello Everyone! So I am currently 2 Months and a Half Post-Op from my Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (5/13/19). So far, I have had a great recovery and have had no problems getting food down. Today though, I threw up for the first time in this whole entire journey. I ate a Dill Pickle wrapped in Ham and Cheese. Is it normal for my first vomit experience to have come this late into my journey? Could it have been the acid in the vinegar from the pickle? What do you all think?

    10 Week Post-Op Stall?

    Thank you so much for the responses everyone!
  15. Hello Everyone! I wanted to seek out some advice from you all, as I am worrying about my weight stall/gain. I am currently 10 Weeks Post-Op (2 Months) and I have been exercising (Swimming and Running) everyday for at least 2 hours since I was 3 Weeks Post-Op. I am very responsible with my diet and I carefully watch my portions. 3 days ago I was 251.0 lbs and now I’m back to being 253.8 lbs. Why am I at this weight stall/gain? Am I doing something wrong? I personally feel a lot stronger and I have noticed muscle gain in my arms and legs, but could muscle really make me stall that much? I also had a lot of nerve pain near my biceps last night, could that be due to muscle gain? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you! ❣️
