August 2013 Roll Call

I even pushed myself to a 3 mile hike all up hill on mountains yesterday and I weighed myself this morning and I STILL haven't broke the scale yet. Standing still at the same weight for almost five days now. I don't know what to do anymore

Maybe you're making yourself crazy by getting on the scale at all right now? :)

As hard as it might be, why not put it out of reach for a week or two...think you might be pleasantly surprised when you do weigh in.

Funny thing is, prior to surgery I never liked ice or anything too cold for that matter. I always went with room temp liquids. However, now ice has become one of my favorites. I am in love with the sugar free tropical flavored popsicle. Yum. Feel better!

I feel how I look! My stomach won't let me eat nothing but ice chips!

Hi Jules, not to be too TMI, but have you had a good BM lately? My weight stayed the same for several days, I felt sluggish because I hadn't had a decent BM. My doc told me to take some milk of magnesia. It worked. Afterwards, I have much more energy and I've been losing steadily.

Hi LadyJay, I'm having that problem... No BM :/ My sleeve was exactly a week ago today. I've tried the benefit, Miralax, andoday i did take a total of 4 tablespoons of Milk of Mag. I'm just so desperate at this point i don't know what else to do. Drinking enough Water and still on liquid diet. I don't know what else to do... Ideas?

Haha me too! Always been a big Water drinker but preferred it room temp, now can only drink it if it's cold. Love the sf popsicles too! :-)

I took colon cleanz and it worked but made me feel sick too. dr said it was ok to take though, but for something less harsh, he suggested I try prune juice. I drink a cup every morning and it has been working. It's not a great taste but give it a try.

I know lady. It's been 14 days and I have had only one small bm. I have tried everything. Milk of mag, moral ax, two other brand laxatives, ducolax, and the one time I did go I had use a fleet enema.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
