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.

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.

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
