Doing good. 10 weeks post op as well. Down 60lbs but in a stall for the last week and a half. Started a size 26 and almost cried when I got into a size 18 jeans today and an XL top!!! Had to buy a few things! How much protien is everyone getting in a day? What did your Dr recommend for calories a day at this point?

Gall Bladder removal surgery tomorrow...feeling great otherwise.

Anyone else have issues with GB after surgery? (my Sleeve surgery was 1 Jun 17)

Completely normal ... I had previously lost 100lbs on Weight Watchers and needed my gallbladder out ... when you lose a significant amount of weight in a short time it screws up the GB ... good lucky with surgery!

Having a bad week - lots of stress. Things beyond my control. My daughter is suffering from depression and anxiety and it came to a head yesterday. Realizing how much I have used food as a way to deal with stress. Yesterday was the worst- I didn't do too bad in calories but did eat half a piece of costco pizza otherwise not bad at all once I looked back on it , but the pizza made me feel gross and today I'm up about a half a pound - and have an awful headache--probably sodium and or blood pressure. I should have worked out the stress in the gym. I just never seem to have time or I never make the time is probably more true.
Just needed to vent a min on here. Please say a prayer if you could.

I'm 12 weeks out and down 38 lbs so that is a positive.

To Mich W (my twin in Sleeveland): I know just what you are talking about. When life is out of "control" I want something direct to change the way I feel for a while. We are practically hardwired by experience to distract ourselves with sensation--flavor and fullness--from awareness of the present reality. At least I am. It's so easy. The downsides are so (relatively) remote. BUT. You have done very very well and that can't be undone by 1/2 slice of pizza or a cookie. It's such an odd quirk of our minds that we focus so much on our failures and our successes can just whoosh by unnoticed.

I am sorry that family troubles are weighing down your spirit right now. Take care of yourself and remember that God doesn't make mistakes.

Thank you so much! I agree with you whole heartedly! I just get so frustrated with my self sabotage! I tend to be super positive but when I feel so bombarded with everything I can just lose it!
Tonight was a good one though- my other daughter needed to go to a mall in in Denver so I took her and her friends and rather than shop in the mall I went over to Marshalls for a bit--- I tried on some size 14 pants- they all fit. I thought- I'll try on some 12's for the heck of it- they all fit too! I was going to buy 2 pair but I thought, maybe I should check out the 10's- OMG! They fit! I haven't been a 10 since I was 29 years old!!! Over 20 years ago! I keep thinking- it has to just be that they run big! Can't believe that I really fit into a 10! So- I'm feeling a little better- still worried for my baby. But I know I haven't blown my diet all to pieces.
Thanks for the encouragement !

My dr has me on 3 months of gullbladder meds post op. Did anyone else get those to avoid the removal? No stones or problems before it's just preventative.




What is the med? I tried something made of bear bile orso or something like that and it made me so sick- mine was after I had my gall bladder out because I kept getting stones in my liver that would get stuck in my bile ducts.

Need to hit reset! Because of all of the stress lately I'm falling back into bad habits. Today I will:
Drink plenty of water! 48oz+
Eat plenty of protein! 60 g +
Avoid carbs! I'm still losing but I'm not being as deliberate as I should. I haven't been planning meals and have been grazing. I am so afraid I'll fall back into bad patterns and won't attain my goal.

Hello! I was sleeved June 1, 2017 & I feel and look great[emoji6] my only regret is I should've done it sooner. My surgery was easy only pain was the gas monster🙄 & my hair started shedding @ month 2, but I've been able to treat it so it's getting better. Congrats to all the June VSG friends[emoji7] 20170916_114416.thumb.jpg.b47a40cded5ac684dfb6b803fdad8ee1.jpg

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
