PPS - I'm going to try and make the September meeting! And maybe the Hospital one next Thursday...

Awesome! It would be great to meet you. I should be able to make the September meeting on the 11th, but I have a scheduling conflict for next Thursday evening which means I'm probably not going to be able to make it to the "Staple Club" meeting. It's really frustrating, because I wanted to show up for the first meeting after surgery and share my experience there. Oh well, if I don't go until September, I'll make a more dramatic appearance. LOL.

Just for clarification - I believe you said the September meeting would be September 4th - the Day after Labor Day? i put that on my calendar as I'm not sure I can make next Thursday's meeting either.

Just got this message about the 2018 support group schedule from Fitzer's support group leader:

Sept 4th 6-7 pm which is the day after Labor Day, on Tuesday. ... October 1st 6-7pm November 5th 6-7pm December 3rd 6-7 pm.

Change to the change! The next support group meeting is on September 11th, *not* September 4th. Deby decided to keep it on the 11th because that date is on the schedule that Dr. Fitzer's office distributed to his patients.

Then I will be there for sure! My #6 Nutrition Appointment is just a few hours before.

What time and where is the meeting tonight? I have a follow-up appointment this afternoon and may just stay in the area.

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

        I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Do what you need to do to stay healthy mentally and physically. I hope you can get to the other side of your depression. Hang in there.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
