The absolutely most important thing for me has been following diet the Dr. gives you stage by stage! Exercise is important, however I think stopping eating as soon as you feel full is the most important thing in the beginning, and avoid snacking and stay hydrated. You will have stalls but just try not to get upset and stay with it, you will lose inches even when the scale isn't moving! Premier Protein shakes are my favorite, find one you like and drink them!

I do exercise, I prefer the treadmill to walking outside, I feel like I get a better workout faster! Also lift some light weights, to start out after surgery take it slow, walk for 30 min a day if you can't do it all at once do 15 & 15, as the weight comes off it will get easier! Walk away the pounds videos were great at first very low impact! After surgery in the hospital start walking the halls as soon as they will let you up!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
