Put a bottle of "poo-pourri" and a pack of flushable wet-wipes in your purse and in every restroom in your home.

Don't overstock on Protein Drinks, your taste buds are greatly altered and food aversions early on are pretty usual.

Scented candles/incense in the bathrooms at home to light when you use it, stops the smells instantly. Actually in the bedroom too, its helpful for the gas you'll have. Your house will smell amazing instead of horrible.

Chapstick for when you are in the hospital. It saved me. Also, I had a phone charger that had a light up cord. It was easy to find considering all the other wires and stuff I had going on (two IVs, a heart monitor and about 6 leads attached to my body). I also bought a water bottle with the Fluid ounces on it so I could monitor how much I was drinking when I was home recovering. Lots of people get gasx strips for the hospital. I bought them but did not need them.

For when you're home, comfortable clothing. You're basically going to be walking, drinking water/protein and sleeping lol If you buy Protein Shakes, get more than one flavor. I only bought caramel and now I won't even touch them bc that's all I drank for a week.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
