@pearldrop so no infection, yeah ! But 3 out of 6 incisions are open - healed inside but they are not closing any time soon. So I need to go back to the clinic every two days so they can check for infection and change the bandage. Oh well. How was your day back at work ?

How is everyone doing ? Are you all losing like crazy ?

Add me to the losers bench! My rny was done this morning. It was pretty rough when I first got out of surgery but now I'm feeling much better. Sipping Water and decaf hot tea. Been walking around the floor. Napping a lot thanks to the pain pump lol. Hoping I can bust outta here tomorrow. I already miss my bed.

@charlotte0606 I hope they can do something to help you heal.

First week back at work has been great. I feel so energised and have heaps of energy. The purée phase is going well, my nutritionist wants me on 800 calories a day and I’m meeting that with my 3 meals and coffee.

I am having to remind myself to eat as I’m not hungry and to have my lunch at a slower pace to stop the burbs lol. We have a snack bar that sits behind me at work and I no longer even want the chocolate or chips which is great. I feel like my Labrador brain has been removed instead of my stomach!

Hello June Losers Bench how is everyone going?

Weigh in day today and I’m down 8.1 kilos. So happy with my loss, and hope it keeps up.

I’m weighing myself on the 30th of each month, I am hopeful this will help me avoid the stalls we see with weekly weigh ins. Once I’m at goal I’ll switch to weekly for maintenance.

I have to keep reminding myself to eat and drink now that I’m back at work. I don’t feel hungry and am keeping to my calorie & Protein targets.

I had my surgery 6/26 and got home 6/28. I’m down 6lbs in less than a week. Had a little nausea in the hospital, but so far so good with eating puréeds. Only complaint is a pain on the left side right under my rib cage. It’s fine if I don’t overdue. Went grocery shopping today and had to take something to take the edge off but it’s manageable. So far so good.

My surgery was 6/21, felt awful after waking up. The gas pain and the left side hurts bad, maintaining pain management with norco. I feel and know I made a good decision and that in time my social life can maybe restart and I can enjoy life again.

I had gastric bypass surgery on June 28th and actually GAINED 10lbs post op. So I’ve been working on getting rid of the gas weight. Lost 5 of the 10lbs gained from surgery. I’ve been doing okay with liquids. Finally got 60g of Protein in today so I was proud of that. This is definitely a process but I think I’m doing great with it so far. Can’t wait to see myself getting healthier and fitter

Sorry about the nausea, I gained like 10lbs from the fluids. I am now 1lb under my preop weight and haven’t lost anything. Still feel great though. Hopefully you get over the nausea soon

Today is my first day back to work. I'm 2 weeks out from surgery (6/26). I'm down 15lbs, since the surgery. Still a little pain on the left side but all in all I can't complain. Eating and drinking fine though I'm probably not drinking enough. Looking forward to getting back to the gym, but I'm giving the left side another week to feel better. I feel like I"m constantly thinking about what I should be eating, drinking or Vitamins. i can't wait for everything to become the new normal and not require so much thought.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

You're doing awesome! I just returned to work too. Lots of left side pain and I hit the 3 week stall. :) So glad I knew about it so I can make it through this week and hopefully begin losing again.

Ugh! 2 weeks? I'm so sorry! I have literally weighed the exact same since Saturday. Not an ounce more or an ounce less. So strange to me.

       Lunch time was my yummy dinner from last night. I made homemade turkey chili. I know, it's the middle of summer but I wanted something hardy and that was perfect with some sliced avocado & a tad of shredded Mexican cheese. YUM! I found the recipe that was titled "the best turkey chili recipe you will ever eat" and in fact, it was!
      My shake this afternoon is the Syntrax Nectar Kiwi Strawberry with a banana. I brought in my magic bullet blender to work since it's light and portable. I used water this time instead of the almond milk. Sipping it now at my desk, it's pretty good. I'd give this one a 5! The banana takes over and taste just like strawberry banana shake. Yum!
      Not quite sure what I am planning on tonight for dinner but since I had my main meal for lunch, it will consist of a dinner shake and a p.m. snack after (protein based of course- probably 2 hard boiled eggs.
       10 more days until surgery... I really hope my liver is teeny tiny from all of this!

      One week out and I am okay.  I am not in any pain and I still do not have gas.  I am feeling empty and no hunger.  I am getting my liquids down.  My doctors appointment is on Thursday.  The runs have slowed down to once a twice a day.  I am doing 30 mins of activity a day to the neuropathy in my legs  I want to try to do more there is nothing stopping me
      I do not feel anything emotion wise like happiness, second guessing, sadness, full of questions.  Some second thoughts as I am realizing the help of the surgery is changing your thought process.  I could eat but I can wash it out of my head. I wish I could do this with my legs.

      Checking in on this sunny Monday morning. For those who read my last update on Friday, I was having a funky week. I recharged the batteries. I spent a fun filled day a the pool yesterday and rode the water slide at least 10 times, yes... like a little kid! I made a work out date with a bestie for this evening. AND I officially, as of this morning, weigh two pounds less than my husband, and 9lbs away from ONEderland! It's amazing how quickly things can happen... I'm so blessed. So for now, its a good week. Love to all!
      OH and! My BMI has gone from 57 to 35.9  That's 21.1 difference. *mic drop*

      This weekend I found it difficult to write/journal anything with my dear soon to be 2 year old running around and keeping me busy. I have quite a few shakes to write about since Friday.
      Friday's continuation of lunch was the Syntrax Nectar Crystal Sky. I'd give this a 4. Reminded me of Kool-aid. Not too shabby and kept me full. 
      For dinner Friday I had my left overs of baked chicken, sauteed spinach with olive oil and garlic and steamed broccoli, potatoes and cauliflower. 
      For my pm snack, I had the Syntrax Nectar Wild Grape. I blended it with PB2. I should have just had it plain.  I think it would have tasted so much better. In my head  I figured it would have tasted like a pb and jam sandwich. Because of my experiment, I gave it a 2 and 1/2. LOL.
      Saturday morning I tried the Syntrax Nectar Cappuccino latte with pb2. Not bad. Some of these Syntrax latte's have that sweet after taste even though they say they are aspartame free. I have no idea what it is but I'm not a fan. The PB2 or banana kind of takes that away.
      Hubs took me to see a movie and my n-laws watched our son. I didn't think ahead so I grabbed a smoothie at the Jamba Juice to stay hydrated. I could have totally snuck in my own shake or drank water but I was tending to my son's needs ahead of mine. I need to learn to make more time for myself. I do have anxiety and this kicks in right before we leave to go out whether it's the family or just me and my hubs. My mother-n-law and father- n law are great with my son but sometimes they don't listen to instructions I give them and thus causes the anxiety to come out. Ugh. Anyway, back to it....
      So this Jamba Juice I had ordered was the PB Banana Protein and MAN did it have ALOT OF SUGAR IN IT. I should have made my own but I'm only human right....Yes, It was tasty but a medium size with 34g of protein, okay......58g carbs, 23g fat and ....eekk....49g of sugar .
      Not, the best choice. Again, I'm only human but I need to really research my nutrition info. before just looking up and seeing "oh protein, that's what I need, I'll take that, please" on the big board of what looks good.
      For dinner, I had a hoagie bowl from my local Wawa which was grilled chicken (all 3 stripes of it ) REALLY?!  packed with veggies and some honey mustard dressing. 
      Breakfast Sunday morning was Syntrax Nectar Strawberry Mousse. I swapped out water with almond milk and added 1/2 a banana. That was a 5 for sure! Very tasty!
      Lunch I tried the Syntrax Nectar Caribbean Cooler with almond milk and 1 banana. Tasted just like a daiquiri. So good. One of my favorites so far! 5!!!!
      Dinner I made turkey chili. Very good! High protein and so good!
      Breakfast this morning, I tried the Syntrax Nectar Vanilla Latte with 1 banana and almond milk. Bit of an after taste again. I need to find out what the hell that is. Again, all of these protein shakes are aspartame free yet, I have this horrible sugary, "sweet-n-lowy" kind of after taste. I give this one a 3.
