Hi he was my surgeon too. And I know the girl you mean on the word she was brilliant she works so hard. Do you attend the meetings at all ? I had my surgery in April and every class has been cancelled each month for different reasons, which is a bit annoying. X

No I haven't been to any of the meetings. Like you said there have been cancellations. I find it handy to have everyone at the end of the phone/ email but tbh I haven't really had anything I needed them for. I'm due my 6 months bloods this week then follow up in 2 weeks. They've been great. Hope you're doing OK x

Hi I'm am doing great thanks. I was wondering if maybe it's how he does the sleeve. Or didn't no if it's just me, and I've been lucky so it would be nice to no how how you feel or any 1 else who had same surgeon. I've had absolutely no complications or hiccups no sickness had no problems with any kind of foods I can drink perfectly well no sipping. Even with a straw. X

I've been great too. I was I hospital 3 days post op with severe nausea. But that's me with general anaesthetic anyway. I'm always the same! I had absolutely no pain. I followed my post op plan to the letter and I've had no food I tolerances and I haven't found anything I can't eat! I think it's been brilliant. I've been tired a lot but my bloods are fine. Thinks it's sometimes due to lack of calories. But I'd do it again tomorrow. X

Get your Vitamins in for after surgery. The Centrum chewable are nice initially post op. Don't get forceval soluble off your GP- they made me vomit and the dietician said she doesn't know anyone who has tolerated them!! I went on the normal forceval tablets at around 2 months post op - they're huge and quite difficult to swallow so couldn't get them down at first!

I've never really done them tbh. I make the odd smoothie using optimum nutrition gold standard but that's all. The team don't really advocate Protein powders. I manage to get plenty of Protein from milk, meats, eggs etc. I also love the Skyr strawberry yoghurt. They're high protein and great for Snacks.

They absolutely are. My dieticians want me to eat a balanced diet from all food groups instead of focusing on Proteins. I don't have to stick to everything low fat. So I eat what I want. Just very small portions. I am still careful though. Luckily I lost my sweet tooth post op so I've had no chocolate/ Cake etc in 6 months. That has definitely helped! Lol

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
