    How much do you eat?

    How much do you all actually eat now? I’m about a month and a half post op and I eat about q/2 to 3/4 cup of food. Is this about right or no? I’m just trying to see how much everyone eats further out or even closer to surgery. Thanks!!!

    Spicy food

    My paperwork from the Cleveland clinic says to avoid spicy foods but I didn’t see it till after.

    Spicy food

    Hi everyone. I am two weeks postop and just started my soft foods today. Buffalo chicken dip sounded great, so I made some but not as spicy as normal. After I eat it, I was looking up about eating spicy foods after surgery and it sounds like I should not have done what I did. Do you think this will cause a problem? I’m kind of nervous that I may have damaged my stomach or something. I’m not having any pain. Thank you!

    Before and After Pics

    I don’t yet have an after photo because I had my surgery this past Tuesday (September 21st), but I will share my very uncomfortable before photos just so I can really keep up with myself. I’m not proud of these photos, but I am proud of myself for getting through that surgery and being on the other side now!

    Before Surgery

    All of these photos were from before September 21, 2021 (my RNY date) - I weighed 248 lb in these pictures.

    September Surgery Buddies!!

    Hey Kenda, I really hope you went through with it! Mine was on Tuesday and I went through with it. Had some gas pains on Wednesday and some yesterday, but today I feel great. A few small aches at the incision sites, but nothing near what I was expecting (I was expecting the painI had after gallbladder removal). I feel like having this almost forced me into being optimistic because I know I can’t change it now! I was in a great frame of mind before but the doubt kept sinking in on me, too. It seems that it is pretty normal for that to happen.

    Day 3 of my liver shrinking diet

    Hey, there! I am on day 9 of mine. It gets much easier! Is yours all liquids? Mine has been 4 protein shakes a day, plus 64 ounces of clear liquids (crystal light, chicken broth, sugar free popsicles, and sugar free jello). The hardest part for me has been the cravings. Those have gotten better as well. I just get this fear that if I don't eat it now, I never will. I know this is not true, but it can still be tough. Luckily, hunger hasn't been an issue surprisingly as long as I stay hydrated! Good luck on your procedure! Mine is September 21st!!!Right around the corner!
  10. OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

    September Surgeries!

    My Gastric Bypass is on September 21st! 5 days away! I can't wait. But the biggest thing I am dreading is gas pains. I had them with my gallbladder surgery and they were awful!
