I had my surgery 6/5 and I feel good so far! My highest recorded weight was 256.12 lbs. The day of surgery after following the 10-day liquid diet I was down 13.8lbs. I was diagnosed with NALDS last fall. Hopefully The RNY will help me with my other commobidities. Please share your journey on this thread with words of encouragement and support.

Mine was 4 June. My heaviest is what I was on day of surgery. Over the past 18 months I gained 20kgs (44 pounds).

Im feeling great so far but am staying off the scales until the 30 June. I’m concentrating on Water & Protein intake for the first month. I know I’ll drop weight as I’m not eating a lot.

I’m meeting with my nutritionist next week to talk about calorie & protein goals for my soft/mushy food stage.

im looking forward to seeing everyone meet their goals

I had the sleeve surgery on June 5. I weighed 222lbs that day, my heaviest was 247 in January. I lost 13 pounds by myself and then 12 on the liquid diet. I threw my scale out before the liquid diet so I won't obsess with it. I am meeting my nutritionnist next week and i will weigh in then.

I am curious about what you're eating at that point.

I’m on the liquids til Saturday, I’m thinking about what to have as my first meal for lunch on Sunday. ATM it’s going to be a little pork mince and refried Beans. The rest of the family will be having burritos or something to use up the rest of what I cook up.

During my liquids phase I generally have a Protein smoothie (aka shake) for Breakfast, broth or thin Soup for lunch and diner. My deserts consist of protein Jello. I’m also drinking lots of Water and have a daily skim latte.

Im really hoping my soft/mushy phase goes as well, I’m having no issues with any fluids and feel great.

I am super paranoid about drinking water though. I set myself 3 goals per day that I try to meet, 750ml before 12pm, then 750ml by 5pm and then another 750ml by 10pm. If my urine looks yellow I drink some more lols

Wow pearldrop you're doing great with Water. I am really jealous of your daily coffee. I can have decaf in 3 days. It's starting to be a long time, especially because I feel so low energy.

I am on semi-liquid now so I am allowed soft rice crispies in milk for breakfast. I have 1/2 cup of Protein Shake for snack or yogurt and soup for lunch or dinner. I also like frozen shakes for dessert or snack.

So today I realized a work dress I have not worn in 3 years fits, I lost 6 pound in a week, and I choked on a Tylenol. Grind your pills people.

How are you all doing ?

That’s fantastic charlotte0606, about the dress not the choking lols

I’m doing great. Had my check up with the Dr today and he’s really happy with my progress. 3 of my 5 incision marks are almost gone! I’m a really good healer😀. I have been rubbing bio oil on my body every few hours since the surgery so I think that’s helping.

Ive recovered from surgery, can’t believe it was only last week!

Well done ! You ARE a fast healer! I hope the diet is going just as well. Are you on purees ?

I just had my staples removed today and most of my incisions are far from gone. I think I move a little too much with my 2 year old.

I started purée today. So far the diet is going really well. I’m being careful with my pouch, but so far so good. I’m back to work tomorrow and looking forward to getting back to a routine.

My surgeon closed with dissolvable stitches, prior to the op we discussed his technique and I saw a previous patients scars 10 weeks out, he is very neat.

He made 5 marks, 3 of which are less than 0.5cm - there’s are the ones that have pretty much gone. The other 2 are about 3cm in length, they will take a bit longer to fade.

Are you using anything? My surgeon recommended Vitamin E cream and/or bio oil. It’s working a treat.

I do not put anything on my incisions because they are still covered at the moment, except for one (this one is healing great). In fact, I might have a start of infection in one so I am going to the clinic tomorrow :(

Good luck for your return to work tomorrow ! Hope everything goes smoothly.

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.
