  1. Congrats!
    Erica B got a reaction from Aliyah Whole180 in June Surgeries   
    Ok so today marks officially 15 days since my surgery, I started soft food today, I had cottage cheese and a mashed banana for Breakfast and some apple cinnamon oatmeal for dinner with a Protein Shake for lunch. Everything is going good so far and I'm down 16lbs since surgery and 50lbs in a month. No regrets and everything is going as it should. I'm super excited to see what happens with me and everyone else after their surgeries! we got this!

    I haven't told many people either about the surgery. Mainly for the same reason, I don't want that many people in my business or to hear their opinions. My work and coworkers know and have been super supportive! I'm not cleared for ATLEAST 2 weeks, my follow up is scheduled for July 1st. Family and friend wise, only the important immediate family know. We definitely got this and I think the support from this forum will definitely help with that!

    I just had my surgery on Tuesday 6/15/2021, started the whole process last July after 6+ years of debating it. I'm currently on a 2 week liquid post op diet (I never wanna see another Soup again in my life after 4 weeks of soup!). Post op hasn't been that terrible actually, that was the scariest part for me before doing it. I thought it would be SO painful the way people described it to me, and I thought I would just be miserable. The first 2 days post op were the worst but walk! You won't want to, but that helps SO MUCH with EVERYTHING, gas pains, stomach muscle pain, boredom lol. I have friends and family who have done this and only know 2 who have not gained all of their weight back which was a little discouraging but I refuse to be one of those people who this fails for. I just found this forum yesterday and I'm so glad I did.

    I agree with the core power, its a little pricey (at least where I'm at) but after surgery that's the only one that I still really like that I also had preop.

    I basically said this exact same thing to my husband! I can't wait to eat REAL food, even if it is just eggs. Yogurt isn't even on my ok list by my Dr. Told my husband I would LOVE some yogurt right now lol

    Ditto here! Only told a few people closest to me. I got a couple of comments about losing weight this week when I went back to work and I said that my Dr. put me on a medically supervised weight loss plan and I've also given up wine for a while. Both are technically true... I don't think it will fail, but I also don't need people in my personal business.

    I totally agree! I haven't told many people because I don't want anyone raining on my parade. I AM already a success story and it's going to stay that way! We've got this!
