    Where are my 3months warriors?

    Happy 3 month post op to all October surgeries!!! How is everyone doing? Hi’s/lo’s?? I’m down 73lbs so far . My focus has been protein and cardio. Hi’s? Under 300lbs I feel a huge difference in clothes. Lo’s? I thought I’d be happier with my progress. I’m still nervous every day of failure.

    Thanks so much! I needed to hear this!! I’m super strict about sticking. I just get nervous and start second guessing things but there’s no reason too. The overthinking mind is an awful place sometimes

    My mother said she no longer wants to talk or see me anymore.

    That’s awful! I’m so sorry!! Your mom seems to have issues that run deep and needs therapy! I’m positive this has nothing to do with you.

    I’m 8 weeks post op and down 60lbs . I’ve been walking since before surgery but I want to start lifting. I mentioned it to my surgeon and he was hesitant with the green light. I feel fine. Just thought id ask and see what your surgeon may have recommended. thanks so much!

  11. Hi guys:) Was just wondering what your purée schedules are. I’m afraid I’m not going to get enough of what I need. I was able to eat a tablespoon of puréed egg this morning and then I was full. Curious to see everyone else’s schedule thanks in advance!

    Lower body lift APPROVED!

  15. I had my follow up Monday. I’m two weeks posts op Today and they told me to start purée today. Gosh I was nervous. I made a 1 egg omelette and put a small amount of cheese in it. I mixed it in the bullet and I was able to eat a tablespoon so far and will try a little more later.

    Incision glue

    My surgeon told me once I’m two weeks post op to just put a little Vaseline on the incision sites and it will slowly soften the glue.
  18. Hi:) I had the gastric sleeve is 2012. Great success! I went from 353 to 167. Maintained weight till 2015 when we lost our baby boy. Four months after lose I became pregnant. Our rainbow was born 2016. A week after her turned one, I found out we were expecting again. Brings me to 2019 I have three beautiful kids and I weigh 363lbs On 10/16/19 I had my sleeve converted to gastric bypass. Recovery is definitely rougher than the sleeve but hanging in there. From my pre-op diet and the first two weeks postop I now weigh 334. was just reaching out to see if anyone could share their success stories as I so badly want to be healthy again and lose all this excess weight. thanks so much
