    carola912 got a reaction from JAKE H in July 2019 Surgery Siblings Post-Op   
    My surgery was 7/26 and I’ve lost 95 pounds. During the pandemic I was able to spend more time on the kitchen and also invested in an air fryer, best money spent!! Also I committed to at least 30m a day of exercise using YouTube, free trials from different apps and even cleaning. I missed my last two checkups but I’m planning to go sometime this month. This year has allowed to get reacquainted with myself. I find pleasure in things that the excess weight has taken from me. Happy anniversary to all!!

    I’m Day 16 post op. 25lb down. I also started body contour massages and I’m wearing a girdle similar to those used post plastic surgery to avoid sagging skin as much as I can. Still struggling with my daily goal of 60gr of Protein.

    Week 1 was the easiest because all you have to eat or drink is liquids and you're really not hungry and you're very compliant at that point. You've go this, you can do it! Just keep sipping, sipping, sipping. Incorporate sugar-free popsicles too.

    My surgery date was 7/22/2019, so tomorrow will make my official 1 week.
    i think I may be a (lucky) anomaly. I have not experienced any difficulty in drinking my Water & Protein Drinks. I haven't had much gas. While I was sore & swollen for the first 4 days, today most of the swelling is gone.
    The best thing for me? I'm NOT hungry! I'm lovin' this! I hope it lasts.

    Hi everyone! Had my surgery Friday. I’m still a bit sore but not in pain or nauseous. Any ideas for week 1? I know is 2 oz every 20 minutes but wanted to know how you guys survived it.

    After much planning and considering, the date is finally here. Tomorrow is my surgery and in one hand I already miss all the things I love to eat, but I am hopeful about this new phase.
