    Rib cage

    Thank you for your thoughtful insight. I have been fortunate to not have had any complications and just these minor adjustments to make. I'll follow up with my doctor in January when I have my next visit. To reassure that I can continue on my continued health journey. Thanks again.

    Rib cage

    My sternum sticks out since loosing 65 lbs from pre surgery it seems like it has a bump on it and the front of my rib cage at the edge feels thick and the sides feel thin. It is weird to feel these bones since being so overweight for do long i never paid attention to them. I'm wondering if anyone elce is going through this also and does it seem normal or odd that I seem to have this. I would include pics but it doesn't show in pics. I'm also experiencing thin but and having the tail bone hurt from sitting for long time , but is has gotten better but now I get sore from the bone where the leg goes into the hip. I must say that I'm not trying to complain, it is just new things to deal with. 0lease share any advice or similar situation you have. Thank you.
  3. Reading labels and becoming a ninja at ingredient understanding is my new thing. Yougert should just be active bacterial culture and milk. Nothing else. Any additional thing is just filler. I have and try to make my own with my one pot. It is so easy it is ridiculous . And will add some chopped fruit or some of my protein powder to it when I take a portion. Reading deceptive packing is important and will make you a more effective fat burning machine . Wishing you continued success.
  4. Yes . It is harder then I thought it would be to change that habit of late night eating. So I now have resolved myself to saving about 200 calories to my late night snacking. I have also returned to making sugar free jello and having that as a snack or having a banana . I have also reduced my portions to 250- 300 g . It was eating puree just so I could eat larger portions. While also not pureeing my foods anymore. It is helping and starting to embrace and modify my old habit. Work with it and not let it become my burdin. Also this week I am now back to loosing weight again. I'm entering my 10 week post op. Pre op 2 week before 265bls Surgery day 250 lbs Current weight 225 lbs That's 40 lbs. In 21/2 months and I am happy and healthier and looking forward to continue on my journey to better health and weight loss .
  5. Thank you everyone for your thoughtful prospective and advice. I am better this morning and I have restarted to journal my thoughts even just randomly bable. Getting it out of my head helps me view it from a different angle. There are some great ideas given to me and it will make a difference. Regrouping and setting realistic goals again. I I do track very carefully my nutrition and calories carefully. I'm going to try to leave a few 100 for my later on snack. . Thank you again for your suggestions and positive thoughts. I am greatfull to be part of this community. Forward with the journey!!
  6. I'm eating at night again. My fat brain is winning. I feel so disgusted with myself at this moment and feel I'm slipping. I am 8 weeks post op and should be transitioning to more solid foods but I'm mostly still pureeing . This way I can have more volume of foods. I need to contact my surgery team and see if they can help. I just feel defeated at this moment.
  7. I had the runs also for the first week or so. It is incredible the amount that exited compared to inputs. But it did get better and if you are worried call you nutritionist or surgery team nurse. I'm sure they will be able to better help you. Never be shy with asking them for help it is what they are there for. Hope you find better days ahead. Wishing you good health and success in you weight loss journey.

    September surgery buddies!!

    Wonderful to read you are finding success at your difficulties. I like the blackberry lemon crystal light. Continued success!!
  9. These are citrus. They are not rock hard like some chewables are . I found them quite good. Easy to consume. Hope it helps.

    I am 7 week post op. And consume 900-1000 cal. But my nutritionist said I was ok to go up to 1200 because I was feeling woozy or tired. I have not had any complications and am down 17 BLS. Did stall for three weeks but started to drop weight again this past few days again. Remember the calories you consume today compared to what you consumed in the past. For me it is about a third . So it is good. It is a marathon not a sprint. Wishing you good health on your weight loss journey.
  12. I have success with chewable vitamin. Progressive is the brand and 5he chewable is a citrus falouring. Look for them they work for me.

    6 weeks post op depressed

    Surgery day I was 250 lbs I'm starting week 7 and I am down 17 lbs . I have stalled for 3 weeks and I think I just might be coming out of it. Having such low calorie intake and body is still in healing mode. ( Body uses energy to heal ) . Make us all week and tired. In a funk kinda thing.. look for the small wins. They will help you smile and feel better. I just cut a new hole in my belt to make smaller because my pants fall down. ( Second time doing this) woooo hooo! I now can reach my shoes with out a shoe horn. Didn't even notice that. My wife told me me she saw me do that. . sweet!!! The little wins are very important. So look for them and enjoy your journey. Celebrate it !! Wishing love and good health on your weight loss journey!!
  14. I'm down 17 lbs and starting week 7. Been in a stall for about 3 weeks( feels longer) but I keep reading it is ok. And the journey is a long road . I'm happy so far. I keep getting stronger after feeling very week and low energy( 1000 calories a day will do that to you ) I have increased my calories recommend by my nutrition specialist. 1200- 1300 is ok see how I feel. . it has helped. I have had no issues with my wounds and feel I am healing very well. I have added more walking and light stretching excise with super light weights. And feel better and better. So reading your post I believe you are doing super. What I learned is not to over think it. Consistency is our best tool. The journey to better health is a marathon the weight loss is a bonus. Plus the little wins add up . I can actually reach my shoes with out a shore horn, pants fall off with out a belt. ( Today I cut a second hole to make belt smaller) !! Whoo hooo!! Wishing continued success and good health!!! Cheers from Toronto Canada!!

    sleep apnea

    I fell asleep on the sofa one night and most time I would wake up rather gasping or with severe sore throat from the snoring. I actually woke up rested and with out any issues. I think I might be on the verge of not needing it soon spoke with surgery team and mention it to them about my experience. They were happy and recommend I keep using it for now and set up a new sleep study . So I'm going to wait till month 3 or so. I'm just on my 7 week for now but very excited .
