Hi I’m a Jersey girl newbie



Recommended Posts

Hi I'm in Bergen County. Just starting the process. Met with surgeon and have my 1st nutritionist appt on the 23rd. I go to the gym twice a week but need to go more and do machines. Since making this decision I feel so excited and impatient but I need to work on my eating habits. I hope to have surgery before years end. Everything hurts lol and i feel my energy level is non existent.

Hi Bergen County here as well! I know what you mean it took about 5 months from my 1st visit with the surgeon in August 2017 and I had the sleeve done January 2018. I did it for health reasons and now I go to the gym 4 times a week minimum. Which gym do you go to?

I go to a gym in Hackensack. My Dr is in Paramus and I will probably have the surgery at Pascack in Westwood

Hello NJ friends! I'm Jacqui and I had my sleeve surgery in March of last year. I'm from Pompton Lakes, but I actually grew up in the West Milford area.

It's really surprising this thread is still on going. I'm having my sleeve in a few days! I'm in Bergen county, it's really cool to see that there are people from right next door on here. v small world.

Passaic Cty here, about 13 months post-op. Good luck to everyone. It's been one hell of a wild ride. Mostly good, some bad. If I had to do it over again, I would definitely go to a different surgeon.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
