    Hi everyone,

    I submitted all the documents 2 weeks ago to my Surgeon’s Office. I’m awaiting:
    1. 2 more appointments with my Surgeon Signing the consent form, picking a Surgery date and taking a quiz while at the 2nd appointment
    3. Approval letter from the insurance company

    The Holiday season is up on, it’s obvious that my Surgery won’t be next month like I wanted . It will be in January

    Can we make a Facebook group so we can chat daily and cheer each other along?

    MandM1188 got a reaction from ciciwms in Pouch stretching?? Can I shrink it?   
    Eat less( eat 5 times a day not 12 times a day but make sure you get your macros in).........eat in a certain window for example between 7am and 7pm only. dont eat and drink at the same time. These are ways to make sure your pouch or stomach doesn't stretch too much from this point on. You got this!!!!!

    You've done such a great job. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!

    Bxnaija: I messaged you. Go to your PCP AND set up consultations with surgeons ASAP


    Update: I will no longer get the gastric bypass surgery. I am going to get the duodenal switch surgery. YouTube it if you haven’t heard of it. It’s a great tool to have especially someone with over 100lbs to lose like myself. 🥰😍

    I was Drinking 6-8 Premier Protein shakes plus 1 solid meal for dinner

    ^^^ I did worse than you. I was Taking in too much Protein.


    Now I’m doing Whole Foods for Breakfast, lunch and dinner. If I’m hungry aside from that, I drink only 1 premier Protein Shake during the day. I’ll have surgery in a few months. I wish I was losing a lot of weight but I’m not. Pcos and fibroids makes it extremely hard to lose more weight.

    You are doing great!!! Just drink 1 shake a day or none at all. Save the shakes for the liquid pre op diet. You got this!!!🥰😍

    Did you make a LGBTQ community here?👀😍🥰  I would love to be part of it. My weight gain was partially due to challenges I faced in my sexual orientation journey in my early 20s for sure.

    Agreed!!! I think a lot of folks who have struggled with coming to terms with/ accepting their sexuality have also struggled with food or body image!

    MandM1188 reacted to Sunnyway in 1500 calorie count   
    I'm pre-op (for revision). I'd probably gain weight at 1500 calories. Over the past three months, my calorie count has dropped from 1200 to even under 1000 per day. I'm OK with it. I swore off sugar and flour 3 when I started the pre-op dieting. I don't get the cravings I once had although the first month was a b***h.
    Protein Shakes are a game-changer. They weren't around when I had my gastric bypass 30 years ago. I usually substitute 1 meal per day with a Protein Shake.
    I've discovered that there are vast differences among the brands. I prefer the taste of the plant-based Protein to the whey-based.

    Aww I’m so sorry, I COMPLETELY understand how you feel. Your feelings are valid.

    Just give yourself some grace and understand that they need to tend to others right now AND will get to you in due time.

    I just made the call last week. My initial 1st appointment with the Surgeon will be in 2 months from now. I feel inpatient and ready to do surgery RIGHT NOW BUT, I gotta wait.

    Time flies, we WILL get surgery SOON, no worries. Sending you TONS of positive vibes your way.

    Keep yourself occupied in a positive way. This too shall pass. 😊
