2020 Surgical candidates

Recommended Posts

I was scheduled for October 30 but have been moved to the first of the year. I have to say I am scared and nervous, but I know it is the best for my health. I am getting the Roux-en-Y Gastric bypass which I hope will give me forever better health. I was wondering if anyone has had good feedback about the vitamin patches.

I think its a scam - I consider myself to be a guro on Vitamins and nutrients. They are easy and in no way deliver the daily punch you need post surgery - I just did a post and below is a pic of my supplements. This is a key and once you good at Vitamins and Minerals you will be feeling so good and so healthy the weight lose is a bonus. I can honestly say i beat the hell out of this body and never did Vits/Minerals and good food for 52 years.

The weight loose is great but if you combine the weight lose with VIt./Min supplement program you will have double the pleasure and healthiness.

Learn the game - rates, levels, etc. It is about getting it all balanced and effective without having to eat 12 pounds of vegetables. You got lots of time just read past the marketing,

I only use one patch, and it’s a Vitamin D and Calcium patch. My other Vitamins are in pill form. I only have to take a very good Multivitamin, B-12, and Biotin. Every surgeon will provide different recommendations for what vitamins to take. I don’t believe vitamin patches are a “scam” at all, but I prefer to take mine in pill form.

they seem to work for some people, but not for others. Not sure I'd want to take the risk.

      Just cleaned out my fridge of old/unwanted food. Next is cabinets and pantry!

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
