Another newbie getting ready for Orbera



Recommended Posts

@@ria122 How are you doing today? I had some pretty bad cramping whern I woke up this morning. I planned on going to work, but turns out I don't think I am there yet. 7 pounds gone as of this morning, so I am very encouraged. I am very thankful for my Protein Shakes, since that is the only thing that helps me feel better. Also, the acid feflux is pretty bad at times, what did you take for it? Can we use tums or Pepto Bismol?

@@candykerr7 wow 7 pounds that's amazing! I took Nexium and since then I haven't had that feeling at all.

@@ria122 Thanks! I will try that! I am very surprised as well about the weight loss, I am trying very hard to stick to the plan as outlined. Since I'm never hungry it hasn't been too hard. I have been doing some downward dog poses too, it seems to help shift the balloon just a bit to be more comfortable when it feels stuck high up under my ribs. Have you tried any "real" food yet? I had a couple ounces of pureed Soup on the last two days, but could only manage two ounces.

@@candykerr7 I've been having puréed Soups for the past few days without any problems. I'm really grateful to have gotten away without any negative side effects that I've read about. I think I could probably move on to soft foods by now but since I'm not really hungry I'm just sticking to the puréed soups.

@@ria122 Mostly Protein Shakes, a little bit of Soup, and I had about two bites of greek yogurt today. So far, so good.

Hi everyone, I am so shocked by the weight loss of 11 pounds, I'm not sure what to think. I am so weak though, I can't stand for very long without getting dizzy. It's worse in the morning I think because I haven't eaten all night and then I have to drink'

my Protein as quickly as I can to feel better. Without going too fast either, and getting sick. Last night I made a little refried Beans with a bit of cheese and sour cream. It was heaven, I gotta find a balance here with my protein though, this being so weak is for the birds! Have a great day guys!

Congrats an your loss!

This is exactly how I was the first two weeks and then off and on the next few weeks and less frequently this last month.

The more calories I eat the better I feel. But nothing sounded good or I felt too sick. I'm still trying to find balance. I'm two months out. Good luck!

HI all, I am 1 month post orbera balloon insertion. Lost about 10 pounds. It was very slow loss the first 2 weeks but picked up the last 10 days. My body needed to adjust I guess. I am having a hard time with nausea in the am (a threw up a lot this morning when I woke up...I didn't eat a lot last night, but it was spicier and cheesier than I have had in a month..Superbowl food) and the acid reflux is starting to get me down. I have it a lot. Almost every night. Its slightly better if I only have a liquid dinner...like Soup or a shake...but even a bowl of Cereal will start it up. My doctor has had me on omeprazole since a few weeks prior to insertion. But I don't think its doing any good. When I have anything even slightly spicy or minty, I feel my entire esophagus burning. I am thinking this can't be good. Seeing my doctor on Thursday and will ask if I should switch to something different.

Hi everyone, I haven't lost any weight since Friday, but I can eat most anything. I'm sure I'm eating too much but better food, and then feeling nauseous for hours. I have to

get a handle on the balance still.

I think because I always feel either nauseas or reflux, food has less and less appeal to me! I forced myself to eat an egg tonight.

We had to take my dad for back surgery so we went to Applebee's and I had Soup and salad, first time eating out but I ate too much (that was 5 hours ago) and I feel like I have a bowling ball in my stomach.

Oh I am sorry! Yup, that happens to me too. I hope you can sleep tonight!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
