I have tried to post the stats on my profile but, well I must be kind of blind because I'm unable to see or figure out were to do that at. Any assistance is welcomed

Dude Congrats!
And no, you aren't blind, the settings for the call out / stats, is online and not the app for whatever reason, I've requested that they add those options to the app... but, nothing's been worked on yet it seems.

While online (from a computer browser), after you log in:
Click the drop down arrow next to your name in the upper right hand side of the page and select "My Surgery" There you'll be able to change yourself from pre-op to post op and add some information.
Then on the left side of that page you'll see "Progress" here you can add weigh ins.
If you click the drop down again and select "Account settings" Then on the left select "Signature" you can update your signature block there.
If you click the drop down next to "create" and then create a ticker, it will use your stats to fill in the ticker and you can click the check box to add the ticker to your signature block.

Hope that helps some!

Sorry about the request. I don't use the app, have it but always in front of my laptop so.... Didn't know you couldn't add that info from it.

You can't add your stats from the App. I've requested that the site update the app so folks can, but right now, you can't. It's *ONLY* available on the web page.

No worries, I'm sure I will figure it out.
I am 51, started at 340lbs, last August. My height is 6ft.
Welcome to ask anything I'll do my best to answer. [emoji4]

      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.
