Recommended Posts

Hello all. Hoping everyone is doing well.

Just sharing a bit. Milk : fair life fat free has 13g Protein per cup and taste good.

I made a smoothie today

Half banana , half cup milk, 2 tbsp PB2 , half scoop unflavored Protein Powder and half cup ice. Blended and was delicious. About 160 calories and 20g protein.

That sounds delicious.

And yes! I mix the chocolate and vanilla fair life between my meals to get both my Calcium and protein in! :)

Where can I buy unflavored protein powder?

I hope my May Peeps are doing ok? Everyone is being kinda quite!!!

Life has been pretty busy with me, being on my 3rd week back at work, so it's understandably crazy for us all getting used to our new lives, eating to live, not living to eat!!!

I have one more week and I can full on exercise again. My Bowflex misses me, as does my exercise ball for ab exercises... Definitely ready to start toning again.

My stall has been broken, 3 something pounds in 2 days so far ????.. I'm able to wear some clothes I've never fit in, and some I used to love to wear... It's gotten me a bit more pumped to get up, and try on something new/already in my drawers lol. It's like shopping in my own closet.. Hugs and Love and Prayers to you all ????❤️????????

Yayyayayayayayyyyy this is great news!

So glad your stall has ceased! Mine has started to as well:) it's a fantastic feeling.

I get my protein powders at GNC

So happy for you that your stall is now in the past.

Out of curiosity, how much did you lose the first 3 weeks post op? And how often did you weigh yourself. I think I might be getting a little obsessed with the scales.

I started at 321, 3 weeks post op I weighed 290, now I'm almost a month post op and I'm stalled around 288-289.

I'm obsessed with the scale too.

I weigh everyday but I only record my weight on Mondays!

I lost 25.2 pounds just from surgery, during those 3 weeks. Then a 2 week stall ???? but losing again now... A total of 49 since pre-op diet to today. And I weigh everyday. Yes it's an obsession, but it motivates me.

I called and spoke with my surgeon because I've been pretty short of breath while I was out the last few days. Apparently it's normal. I also asked about my weight. (Haven't lost anything in 3 days) and he said to NOT weigh myself at all... He said if I absolutely have to weigh myself to do so only once a week but he really discourages it. So i think I might have my husband hide my scale. It's driving me nuts not seeing the scale move.

Hi all I'm back for the moment I've been in the hospital for 10 days ic had to take a break from everything hospital stay is been really tough. I've been kind of depressed and feeling that I made the worst mistake of my life because this pain is truly horrible I mean it's unbearable. So I have been staying away because I didn't want to be a Debbie Downer for you guys but having said that I am feeling better I think my depression was just the scariness of what could happen and feeling very lethargic. but the last few days since I've been home I've been feeling a lot better I feel with more Protein I'm getting more energy and I'm getting that excitement back. since being admitted I just felt like I've been run over by two trucks. anyway I'm feeling really well and then yesterday I weighed myself and I am down to now 375 plus another additional 25. Since I went into the ER so I'm feeling better about that and I'm I'm generally feeling better about the overall surgery again I just taking a break from everything. sorry there's not much punctuation in this it's because voice recognition.

Hi all thank you for your thoughts and prayers, doing good for the moment. a little bit of discomfort and neck pain but I still also have some liquid and air trapped in my stomach it was like doing the surgery all over again. so he's going to check my CT scan today well another one and tomorrow if he might let me go home tomorrow. He will have a nurse come by every day to feed me through the PICC line.

For some reason I just can't help but feeling like I never should have done the surgery. The doctor said this is a statistic that rarely ever happens but it does happen. so keep your prayers up for me and keep me in your thoughts and we all will push through this and it goes without saying that I love all you peeps here on this gastric bypass board

How are things going ? Do you still have picc line? Was thinking of you and hoping you getting better.

It's so hard to not weigh yourself.. I do that and measure, everyday.

How have you been doing? I'm still trucking along ???? still miss certain foods, but it's gotten easier as the days pass. We had a birthday party for my son day before yesterday, and I even grilled all the meat. I had some of a burger and a few bites of a blackened hot dog (which I love)... Now mind you it was very small amounts of both.. The burger made me sick, as I've had a turkey hot dog before with no issues. It lasted 4 hours. Yes 4 hrs.... I was miserable. I'll definitely try it again in the future... I was proud of myself, in that I didn't sample the cake or ice cream, for fear of getting sick lol.. That's really been it, just super busy at work and living my new life.. I hope it's good on everyone's end too...

ONE MONTH!!!

Sorry about the lapse!

Yesterday I surprised my sister with Ed Sheeran concert tickets so we saw him last night! Amazing live!!

Things have definitely tested me this past month and I've learned so much about portions and about how hard it is to view yourself in a different way after losing weight, but seeing progress makes it oh so worth it.

Today, I weighed in at 285. This is 45 pounds from my highest weight of 330.

I'm unsure of what my blood pressure has been doing, but I can only hope it has been getting lower since I've dropped these 45 pounds!

Here's some pictures too!! post-253319-14340290447642_thumb.jpg post-253319-1434029060531_thumb.jpg

You are looking amazing!!!!!! And love your giraffe tattoo, if that's what it is of course lol. Yes this first month for us all has been very eye opening. Old thinking has been trying to put thoughts in my head, but I'm fighting hard. Love and Light to all of you ❤️❤️???????????? Jaysen

      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.
