Way to go Jenn!

That's one thing I haven't done yet but waiting to try...... Is see how my scrubs fit. I return to work on June 11, waiting til then.

Very happy for you.

Hello all my Bari friends.

I haven't posted in a while, I was admitted to hospital for past 5 days , the diverticulitis became severe and needed to be in hospital for IV antibiotics. Home now and feeling really weak. Was not getting enough Protein while in hospital. As much as I was telling them I need a protein source no one was hearing me. They had me on a clear liquid diet. At least they were giving me some fluids. Anyway, home now on oral antibiotics. Trying to get back into the swing of things.

I'm having hard time with everything, Water (believe it or not ) tastes sweet to me and difficult to drink.

I can't find a Protein Powder that I can tolerate and I'm soooo frustrated. Im crying all the time and my poor husband tries but doesn't really know what to do. Im not gonna say I'm regretting the surgery because I'm in it now and regretting it just isn't helpful. Just can't wait to feel like myself again. ????????????

I'm so sorry you are having issues ???? you will continue to be in my prayers ????????

I hope you find a protein source soon. It's a trip at how different stuff tastes now. Well with your issue having been addressed, maybe this is your corner to turn, to be you again. This is some emotional sh!t for sure. It's like it's being released from our fat cells lol. I think it's actually a thing, if I'm correct.. That's why I'm always on here, and talking to head doc, meetings and taking all meds advised ????... I have my ups and downs everyday, so at least you know that part is normal ???? ❤️

Thanks so much. Your words of encouragement are much needed.

I know things will get better.

I'm sure your right with it being water weight.

It's a journey , not an overnight fix.

@@nancynew I am so sorry you are dealing with issues but I will say this to shall pass! Just hang in there and I'm sure things will continue to get better. It is perfectly normal to feel a lil regret under the circumstances I'm sure we all have at some point. As far as protien I'm in the same boat, Water and Protein Shakes are not cutting it for me so I know I'm lacking in that area. Hopefully we can figure that out soon ????

Thanks so much. I'm sure things will get better, just have to find a way to get through it. Tough but not impossible. So glad to I'm not the only one dealing with taste issues.

It smells also for me , everything has a weird smell. Don't know what that's about !

Yeah, smells were so different too.. I've noticed that being on regular food diet, that that is dissipating some. Not all the way, just a bit..

Wouldn't it just rock if it were an overnight fix!!? I'd probably take it for granted, and get fat again, just knowing it was lol. In some ways I'm glad it's not an overnight fix. I wouldn't appreciate all the small victories in between as much. Those NSV are coming to us all. I just had one last week.. A shirt I bought a year ago, that never fit, Did!!!! So see you'll have a great feeling like that soon ???? it has to be so tough for you, so don't think I'm taking that lightly with my words or thinking. I just know what positive light and love can do for us ????

We are all rocking it out, in our own ways. ????❤️????

So, I need to vent/complain for a minute. I am so ridiculously sick of liquids. I'm hungry, miserable, and it sucks that I have to cook for my family and I have to watch them eat. I'm a week and a day out. Sunday needs to hurry up so I can at least have yogurt and some mashed potatoes. Sry I just needed to B**&& for a min. Ugh.

It sucks hard doesn't it!!!!! Just keep saying to yourself, this will all be worth it, when I'm thin and healthy soon... The NSV's are helping me at my stage. Keep it up!! You've come this far ????

Yes, yes it does! By far one of the hardest things I've had to do. But I need to keep in mind that when I came home I was 270 and now I'm 242 so I just need to keep focused. It's just hard when you have to cook for everyone else and watch them eat.

Hi everyone, well my surgery was on the 20th may I healed well have been walking and doing the right thing.

BUT... The scales have not moved my start weight was 139.9kg and surgery day weight was 131.1kg and as of today I'm 129kg but that fluctuated over the last week from 130-129-128-127 back to 129 I'm so dis heartened, I'm regretting this big time I miss food, I guess I could handle the mourning of food if I was losing but I'm not, any help, ideas, suggestions.

Please god tell me I'm not the only one. I don't experience hunger either. Which is fine

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
