No idea why they shows as spoilers. I didn't even know we had a spoilers option on this forum

My grandmother and her friends always said to wear girdles, not only did it hold you in but it prevented you from over eating. That is totally true. Anything tight sitting on my torso makes it hard for me to eat. Tight new bra, and/or Shapewear is a no no if i want to eat 4 ounces. I can probably eat 2 comfortably.

Hi,
For the person who said my posts show up as spoilers, sorry, but I believe that you should be well informed about every aspect of your health, before surgery and after surgery in this case so you will know what you may have to encounter. Better to find out now than later. i have surgery before and the complications were horrendous. It wasn't weight loss surgery but after the surgery, I started reading about how others had complications from same surgery and didn't know about certain things that could happen. Yes, weight loss surgery is great. I am planning on mine. I am pre-op but I am a reference librarian by occupation so I dig for information to stay well informed to make educated decisions. Sorry and for those who responded about their experiences and concerns, thank you. I have used intelligence to guide your decisions concerning your health. As my PCP stated, you look at the risks vs the benefits, then decide.

I had meant another user, not you :) see below for explanation of the how and why;)

I don’t know either... hadn’t realized it until was explained to me that I had done it.

I thought most surgeons tested for this pre surgery so you could get treated (if positive) beforehand. I was tested.

I was tested beforehand. I also use to have GERD problems before my surgery and took Prilosec daily for a couple years. I have not had any problems since the surgery and I am not taking meds. I wonder if fixing a hernia during the surgery was responsible for the GERD ending. I am 2 months out.

I prefer to warn people about investigating their surgeon very, very, carefully. Mine did a number of things because he had his own biases and didn't check or send me to someone and blew me off when I asked if the gastroparesis could have been causing my problems after surgery.
I live in Hampton Roads area.


Who was your surgeon? Also how long ago did you have your procedure done?

      Today I actually looked small to myself! This is the lowest weight of my adult life... I cant even imagine being smaller. Only 20 lbs to goal 1 then re evaluate from there.

        I remember that day myself, walking around outside waiting on wife at doctor and turned corner and saw myself in mirrored office window. Stopped me in my tracks cause i think that was the first time i really saw i was not the same size.

      Another NSV - I am hitting either the elliptical or treadmill for 45 min in a row. I also am doing weights for my bat wings (the back of my arms) lol. I honestly would have never been able to exercise this long before. I was straining after 10 minutes. My work offers personal trainers in the workout facility (for a fee) and I am considering it to help me maximize my time working out. I don't want to always do cardio but I am not sure what weight exercises to do now.
      On another note, yesterday after my last meeting I went down to the fitness center and worked out. I didn't text home and ask if I could, I just took the time and did it and told them to start dinner without me. I got home at my normal time and it really didn't bother me that I didn't "ask permission" to take care of myself. I actually put myself first for once.

        putting your health and happiness first is really a form of putting family first. What good are you if your sick and miserable.

      Okay, I finally took another picture of myself. I don't see much change in my appearance but I realize we don't always see ourselves realistically! So here it is:

      I'm struggling. I've been stalled now for a couple weeks. I haven't really been tracking my food like I should be. I haven't been to the gym. Both things I know are bad. I logged my food for today and I'm sitting right around 1,200 calories and 115 grams of protein. 60 carbs. I'm not sure if I should be aiming for less calories at this point. Hmmm.... well. I will def be hitting the gym next week, hard. I'd say this week, but I'm swamped with stuff after work everyday. It's just not feasible. I have been staying extremely active though. Also, cutting out all fruit this week. Here's a pic from this past weekend!

        thank you! All and all I feel great, I just know that I should still be loosing and when I remember, "hey! you aren't done yet!" then I get down on myself.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Honestly, Ash! You are young, pretty and in love! What is there to be down about?

      3. allwet

        Just ride this stall out AshAsh your numbers are fine. Do try to track more often but other than that just keep the faith it will break.

      4. KimTriesRNY

        You’ve lost a lot in a short amount of time. A stall is bound to happen sooner or later. Get back to tracking as a priority! You look great, and more progress will follow. It’s not a sprint with over a hundred pounds to lose, we have to learn to accept our bodies will take a break every now and then.

      5. Sleeved36

        Don't be so hard on yourself. Life happens and you have to deal with life. Even if you don't make it to the gym, go for a little walk in the evening. It will help your stress level and not make you feel bad about skipping the gym.

        You have made amazing progress and look great!

        Stalls are the worst and it is hard to be patient. The scale will keep moving just keep going!
