    VANILLASUCKS reacted to Recidivist in Why Am I Always Cold ?   
    Prior to surgery I was hot all the time and sweat profusely when it was more than about 80 degrees. Now that I've lost over 100 pounds and am in maintenance, I'm cold most of the time, which I actually welcome. I no longer sweat in the summer!

    Check into Intermittent Fasting. It's broken me through so many stalls. When I hit my hard stall at 230, I thought I was done for sure. I'm sitting between 180 and 190 now.

    2 weeks, 6 weeks, 6 months 1 year and annually after that. Ask if they offer a cash discount if you pay the same day. Good luck!

    I just had my 3 week post op and will go back at 3 months, 6 months and 1 year.
    My out of pocket has been met for the year, so the 6th months and 12 month appointments I’ll have to pay.

    Usually if there are no complications: follow up appts happens in the 6th, 9th,12th (maybe 18th) month then usually yearly.
    In my experience the doctor visits are nearly as expensive as the labs if you need to do it out of pocket. That's when you'll likely need/want to shop around for the best price
    Good Luck 💚

    That is a lot of vitamins, have you been told you need all those or are you just making expensive wee?

    I feel so accomplished after losing 42 pounds in the last two months, and my health feels so great. Are there any tips that any of you would give moving forward ? What were you guys doing around this time after your surgery that helped with your weight loss?

    Nothing has come easy during my weight loss journey but I refuse to give up on myself. After truly finding what best works for me, how could I cheat, or stop.

    I would love to share your transformations on my Instagram @200poundsgone

    It went well . I sleep sooo much after surgery I got out of operation and in a room at 6. I did walk at 8 and I did go to the bathroom by myself and frequently. Next morning I puked some blood but it was fine. Passed the xray test no leaks (the drink was disgusting!!!) Came home Saturday and was all over the place by Sunday today Im sore I think I pushed myself to much yesterday but I feel great and even started full liquid diet

    VANILLASUCKS reacted to Frustr8 in Bariatric fusion mixed berry water flavor   
    Have you tried Protein2-0? And Ensure has a berry flavored powder for hydration, a little pricey but I like it. Also Propel has Berry, maybe Gatorade and that other readily available in their Zero Incantation, And lastly Nestle Splash, like the other flavors it is zero calories. My son and I like Acai Grape best. And I could get addicted to strawberry Kiwi Propel, maybe I am already!
