Dr Noria and the very nice doctor at Riverside is Dr Rana. Sweet sweet corn, I hate a smartphone who acts too smart for its circuitry!😰

I'm with Rana unless other doc can get me in sooner. I have one last nutrition appointment this month then I'm ready to schedule. My Mom had bypass yesterday with Dr Sorenstine (pretty sure I misspelled that) and her surgery was scheduled for 2 1/2 weeks after her last nutrition appointment. If your friend wants another buddy I can cheer her on too

Glad you seem sorted out at OSU it's a great program! Can't wait for both of us to get our dates

Nnori I hope Dr Tom S will excuse us mangling his name, shame it isn't Smith, Jones or White, those the smartphone will let me spell right. Trying to get my last 1/2 hour in on my C pap, I didn't sleep well last night so I kept getting up and doing something else to tire down. I know sometimes I whine about older age and poor sleep,patterns but . dang it, I've never n
been this age before and I still don't got,it perfect!👵And the grayhaired emoji isn't perfect, although I am the age I never grayed, my hair is still unrepentedly red-gold and there is NOT an emoji,for THAT!😛

I just had upper GI, EKG, Chest X-ray and blood work this am. Meet with psychologist on Monday and have to meet with dietician. Primary care dr already said she would sign me off after my labs and test results come in. Hoping to late July. Excited to be healthy again.

      I'm going to hit my stall now. I can tell, because 1) almost everybody stalls when they start moving on to real foods, in addition to the liquids, and 2) I'm at 302 pounds, lol, and the scale knows I want to see the 2 in the first digit.
      I'm fine. It's not going to freak me out or really even upset me. Honestly, I could stand the reconfiguration of inches that always comes with a stall, for me.
      I'm posting here in between bites of refried beans, which (knock on wood) seem to be going pretty well for me, so far. I'm so happy. Between ricotta (with a little sauce and a little seasoning) and refried beans (with a very small amount of low-fat cheese melted in), I can live without chewable foods for a pretty long time. (I'm also eating yogurt and ricotta cheese.) I do want to upgrade to the ricotta bake, because it has better protein and might cut down the number of protein shakes I need in a day. It's probably a bit more firm than ricotta alone, so I held off at first, but I think it's time, don't you? Plus, my spouse can put it over pasta and enjoy it with me.
      I'm eating 2.5 ounces of ricotta in a serving and maybe that much in beans? (this is my first attempt, but that's how much I served myself) I can eat 4 ounces of Greek yogurt in half an hour, which feels like a lot before the 2 week anniversary of my surgery. But I still haven't really figured out my body's "full" signal. I felt a little sick and stopped eating, one time, which made me think I'd overdone it. Other times, I just take tiny bites, sometimes a few minutes apart, for half an hour. And then I refrigerate or throw out what's left, because that was the guidance the nutritionists gave me. But other people talk about a sore shoulder or something as their signal, and I haven't found that yet.
      I guess it'll come with time and practice.

        Prediction: ACCURATE! I was up .2 this morning. Here's hoping my thighs are smaller after this stall, so I can finally wear smaller pants. (The waists of pants that "fit" are too loose, but the thighs are still tight. And belts are uncomfortable on my incisions.)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Don't talk yourself into a stall. They're common, but not everyone has them early on. I honestly haven't had one yet. I've only had 3 "up" weeks in almost 8 months and none of them was from a stall. (One was from vacation, two were recovering from losing 13 lbs in 10 days because I was prescribed too much diuretic and ended up dehydrated in the er ☹️) You're unique, just let it go.

        It is early for you to recognize a "full" signal. Pretty much all the foods you're eating right now are sliders that just pass through your pouch. Other than the refried beans, most of them won't stay long enough to trigger a "fullness" feeling. Don't worry, it will come. You're doing great!

      3. CrankyMagpie

        If it's a stall, it's only in comparison to the ridiculous speed with which I lost during immediate pre- and post-op. I'm still down like half a pound from when I posted this. (Half a pound in four days is slow for this stage of the journey, but it's still good!)

        Thanks for the reassurance! It's good to be told I'm doing well. ❤️

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Yeah, we love that non-linear weight loss when we have a 4-pound week. Not so much with a 1/2-pound week. I only weigh twice a week (and only write it down on Saturday) in an attempt to keep the insecurity monster at bay 😉

      211!!! Randomly super excited to have read that on the scale this morning! It almost doesn't feel real!

      Haven't hit a stall but this week with only a 2 lbs loss after hitting the gym for 5 days is really getting to me.

        I had a stall for 2 weeks, lost a couple pounds, then started the gym and now I'm stalled again!

      2. GreenTealael

        Think of your gym time not for weightloss but as preplastic surgery. I promise the more you work out (whether you lose fat or gain muscle through it) the better your skin tone, tightness and elasticity will look in the long run... (Learning that now, too late after taking a break from the gym during a recent very active losing phase, I HAVE TO GO BACK)...

        YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!
