Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Brief update.



Recommended Posts

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!
Ok, I'll give it another go. Lol

@jconforti, I was looking for a location to find you. Your point on "Am I the only one" is well-taken and well-stated. May I share what,happened to me once? Often if I feel I have an insight, I do post. Thought that was fine until one day I answered a query,only to be put down because I was pre-surgical, apparently this person felt only post-surgical persons should be permitted to answer. My response had been gauged on life experiences which I had felt had equal validity. Didn't post for awhile, my "newbie" feelings were wounded, and until she went,inactive I never posted again where she was at. Just wanted to share this with you, and until I upgraded to Beta app, my "trendings" never told what forum things originated from so once or twice I did post way back in the GuysRoom by accident, but not anymore. I respect the boundaries now.

@Frustr8 - I don't want to hijack this thread or take away from @Glen Dean's accomplishments.

No one should be put down for offering insight or advice and I'm sorry that happened to you. I hope it does not deter you from offering support in the future.

I would also like to thank you for trying to respect the boundaries. However, and with respect, I can't help myself from mentioning that you are making this statement from inside the boundaries you are trying to respect. This is still the Guys room. :)

Just my .02,

JC

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
