    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    I went for my 7th month checkup and surprisely the goal I set for myself according to my surgeon is unrealistic I thought I needed to lose another 40 pounds he said he would be pleased if I lose just 20-25 more. So, Wow I am happy and confused at the same time. Lol. Hope everyone has a great holiday.
  4. So, how was your first time introducing alcohol into your new body?
  5. Sleeping on the couch without half my body hanging off I fit now. 😆

    I still honestly can't say if it makes me full I don't get the full feeling like I used too. I have my 7th month check up on the 22nd I will ask the Dr about it? The fact that I'm losing says I'm doing something ok, but is it hurting me in the long term is what I need to know. Will keep you posted. Take Care

    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    Hello, glad to hear you are doing so well. My sleeve was 4/15 I too am doing as well as you in fact we sound so much alike I am finding myself able to eat more which is definitely scary I seem to graze more than I eat meals, but dr said it was OK as long as I eat the right things. I finally hit Wonderland I don't weight myself much at all I go by my clothes and my accomplishments like A1c down from 9 to 6. And pills I was on I don't have to take anymore. I walk the park 4 days a week something I couldn't do before. I have No regrets about the surgery at all. I am still losing hair which is frustrating but hopefully dr said it would stop about now so fingers crossed. Anyway, sorry mine is a long post too. Hang in there all newbies it does get easier down the line. Take Care all.

    Straws

    When did everyone start using straws? I am 5 months post surgery and still afraid of using straws for fear of heartburn. Has anyone else done this ?

    I know you might not have lost a lot of weight but how do you feel? Everyone always asks how much weight have l lost. I don't weigh myself regularly my surgery was on April 15th but I went from 11 meds to 4 meds, I can walk my dog at the park without getting out of breath after a few steps. My A1C is almost normal. You have to not stress the actual weight loss but the good things that come with the surgery. Hang in there.

    Straws

    Thanks, I don't use them much I didn't even pre-surgery, but I was just wondering in case it comes up.

    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    Yes, and my hair is already thin too. Dr said around six months should notice hair coming back in one more month to go. Dr told me to take biotin and it's helping

    Hello All, I had sleeve April 15, total down 55 pounds. I was stalling alot it seemed until I started grazing and than it's slow but steady weight loss. The full meal's were not working for me. I am amazed at how food changes constantly. I was loving watermelon and now can't tolerate and eggs. And things I didn't like before surgery I am enjoying now. So strange. Anyway, keep up the good work and I hope we all talk again 5 months out. Peace

    What was your tipping point?

    One of my tipping points was seeing on my medical charts. Morbid Obesity, what a horrible diagnosis to see. The second was finding out I was going to be a grandma for the first time that we thought would never happen. So happy. Post op 9 weeks now and doing great. So grateful

    What was your tipping point?

    Just plan on bringing home a lot of leftovers. once you reach the regular food stage. If you explain to the servers you had WLS they will let you order from the children's menu.

    Today I reached 2 months post, doctor said I can start regular diet starting today, honestly I have been on a semi regular diet for a couple of weeks now. Mostly just alot of chicken and veggies. I am getting so good at chicken recipes I should write a book lol. I am in California and we are having a heat wave, so I'm trying to get some walking in early am, but seriously not a morning person, so pretty much settling for YouTube work outs. Wishing well to all.
  20. I am almost 8 weeks post surg, I am doing great, lost weight, I was on 3 diabetes meds and now only 1, Gerd is doing good, I was on 11 meds and now only 4 including bariatric vitamins. I am so blessed that I have not had a bad experience with my sleeve surgery as others, beyond the first week. My only problem is still BM issues, but I am dealing with it. I am so happy I did this. Hang in there I know it will get better for you all soon. God Bless

    Ricotta Bake--8 oz. Ricotta, half cup grated parmesan cheese, 1 large egg beaten, 1 tsp Italian herbs, salt & pepper, half cup pasta sauce, half cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese. Preheat oven 425, mix all together but sauce and mozzarella. Put in baking dish, top with sauce and mozzarella. Bake for 20-25 ,minutes. Let cool slightly.....yummy and I don't even like Ricotta

    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    Has anyone had an issue with anxiety? I am 6 weeks post op and about a week ago I noticed that I was experiencing anxiety, enough that I don't even want to leave the house! I wanted to know if anyone else has or is experiencing this, there is nothing else going on in my life to warrant this, very puzzling.

    You know it's funny I seem to buy more, my husband even said you aren't eating anything how come the grocery bills are so high, than I realized I go to the store hungry and remember they always say don't go hungry shopping, I told him it's all for him. He says I couldn't eat all that food if I was starving lol, honestly I just think it's wishful thinking to be able to eat the food, I am 6 weeks out post. I have 2 more weeks before solid food. Protein shakes and powders and healthy foods are expensive too. Thanks that's my take for the day. 😊

    I just had my 5 week check up and dr told me that with the rapid weight loss it makes your body tired, it's fighting it. Other than that all is good with me 😁
