Post-Op January 2014 Losers Club!



Recommended Posts

I'm only down 40 pounds since my surgery on Jan 13th. For the last month I have been stalled - not one pound of weight losss. However, prior to the surgery I would have been happy to have lost 40 pounds! It's all in the perspective :)

I thought I was losing hair, but got it done today she thought I was actually getting better hair. I've been pounding the Protein and doing all my Vitamins.< /p>

I finally had to buy some new clothes. The old jeans were falling off and all my tops are too big. I just bought some fun clothes. I'll put a belt on and continue to wear my baggy stuff to work. Priorities!

I think you look great!! 37 is nothing to sneeze at! Don't get discouraged it's going to move again. I plateaued for a good month, then I upped my Protein by adding a lot of fish to my diet, changed my workouts and boom! scale is moving again and I'm down another 10 in a month.

You got this, stay positive!!

I have tried baked fish twice, it just don't settle very well. I wish I could find something with substance that would.

Congrads on the 10#! Awesome stuff!

The difference

Since surgery on January 9th, I have lost 53 lbs. When I brush my hair after a shower, it looks like I lost enough hair to make a toupee. I keep forgetting to take my Vitamins, which I am trying to work on. But my clothes are falling off of me and I haven't felt so good about myself in decades. I might even buy a new outfit and treat myself to a day of getting my hair and nails done for my 10th wedding anniversary.

Thank you, I figured out how to get the picture on there. So I added the picture I had meant to yesterday.

Everyone is looking great! I went on a cruise last week and realized I can eat just about anything. I've been having a hard time getting back on track since I've been home. I find that I'm actually feeling hunger for the first time since surgery Jan 28th. I go to the gym everyday and did on the boat but those dinners were so good. I had little bites of food here and there and even had a bite of dessert. I was shocked when I went to the doctors today and I actually lost 4 pounds! I think it's because I'm Actually eating. I'm down only 43 lbs since surgery but I am very happy with it. So happy to see such success and progress for everyone.

Is anyone still vomiting regularly? There are a lot of things, particularly Protein like chicken, that still get stuck and the I vomit. Also had my first episode of dumping syndrome on Monday. I drank a fancy coffee with too much sugar (I realized later) and about two hours later (at the airport!) my blood sugar dropped to 48, I had heart palpitations, sweating, dizziness, and difficulty catching my breath. It took about 4 hours to feel better. I thought I was dying. Luckily my fiend who is a type I diabetic was with me and thought to check my sugar or I would've been really scared. I've certainly learned my lesson though!

How is everyone doing? As for me, I am doing well. Still losing, slowly though. But I am 32 lbs from goal so that is to be expected.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
