@@ria122 Thats a great loss for weighing so little, I am very happy for you! What have you bee able to eat, or are you still on liquids right now? Where do you live? If you don't mind, since we are so close to the same time doing the balloon, I would really like to keep track of each other. I think we could maybe help each other through this process. My mom had gastric bypass over 10 years ago, at 350#, she is at 180 now, and looks great. Her experience has been helpful to me in trying to prepare emotionally for dealing with my food issues. I think thats the part I am most worried about.

@@candykerr7 i would absolutely love to stay in touch and keep each other updated about our progress. I am still on liquids, but I did have some chicken broth yesterday. Today I tried to have a thicker Soup but could not have much of it. Since I am not feeling that hungry I think staying on liquids is best as it seems that people who progress on to solid food too fast have problems with vomiting. I am planning on moving on to thicker Soups if I can tolerate them on Sunday.

@@ria122 That's probably a great idea, are you feeling hungry at all? Weak or sick?

I don't feel sick at all. Definitely weaker than usual but I haven't really been doing much strenuous activity so it's been ok. All in all I was expecting a much worse ordeal but it has turned out unexpectedly well so far.

@@ria122 Good morning, I just woke up. I had the procedure at 9:30 yesterday morning. Pretty rough day and night,

The worst part was the bad headache I had. I threw up many times, but I think I drank too much and too fast because I was so thirsty. Woke up today though, and feel a hundred times better. I think this is going to be great! How are you doing today?

If you work, have you gone back? I'm hoping to go back on Monday, but we shall see. Have a great day!

Hi new to the forum. Getting my balloon fitted tomorrow. Bags are packed as I am allegedly in hospital up to three days, would prefer being at home but I will cope for just a few days. Don't feel nervous. Been waiting for nearly two years to get this weight off me. Will keep you updated if that is okay. Will help pass time away. Really worried about sickness as I hate being sick but took some good notes from here about sipping Water etc. Wish me luck ????

@@jaydee68 GOOD LUCK, BE POSITIVE!!! I am day 3, still feeling some nausea, but nothing too difficult. I have not had any hunger at all. I have to force myself to drink my Protein, cuz without it I get horrible headaches. 4 pounds in 2 dqays is pretty good though, I will take it. Have good day, and take care of yourselves everybody. Lucky me my husband is being total helicopter hub, and nags constantly. LOL

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
