Just had 1oz eggbeaters with 1/2oz mushroom, 1/2 oz snow crab and was able to eat it all. Yay!! Full 2 oz in one sitting and no foamy backup for first time in 5 weeks. Today is beginning of week 6 so happy to have found something I can stomach. Thanks to those who mentioned eggbeaters. I don’t like egg whites and still hate throwing out food so couldn’t bring myself to crack an egg and throw away the yolk. Eggbeaters is a great alternative for me. It seems expensive but considering how little I can eat, I feel it will be worth it.

That's awesome! When I eat egg whites I give the yolk to the dogs ! No waste with those guys around lol

Speaking of how little we can eat...I love love love how much money I’m saving on food!!! Living in NYC I had become a delivery food junky. Every day was logging on to grubhub to see what’s for lunch or dinner or both. We were averaging $40/day, sometimes more. That’s over $1,000/month on restaurants alone. I deleted all food apps from my phone and am truly loving being in the kitchen trying out the recipes posted here. Thank you peeps!!

Alright, I'm not posting as much as many of ya'll, but I'm still around and reading - kudos to all of you for the hard work! Progress update on this end: Surgical date: 1/6/20 (VSG) - weight 310.5. Weight check this morning was 275.6. YEAH BABY!

The hardest thing for me has been finding things that don't leave my stomach feeling "heavy" (I don't know how else to describe it). I'm doing lots of soup/stews and eggs (which are easy for me fortunately). Without getting too graphic let me suggest everyone stay on top of their Fiber supplements. constipation is NOT fun. For those struggling, stool softeners will be your friend.

Continued good luck to you all!

Very nice. I had to buy ring size adjuster as my wedding band felt like it was too loose. Hopefully everyone will need them. Here are the ones I got and they work well.

Yes, I’m afraid so. My three are adults now but when my sons were young, food was a huge expense. My oldest is 6’3” and about 320 lbs. Youngest son is 6”5”, size 17 shoe and 240 lbs. They were always big boys with big appetites so I know what you’re saying!!

You’re doing fantastic and your excitement shines through!! Keep doing what you’re doing cause it’s working!! Also had my vsg on 1/6/20. Down 21 lbs, which might be considered slow, but not concerned because I haven’t been able to eat much so I’m not exercising yet. Right now I’m just focused on figuring out what I can eat, being balanced and establishing healthy eating and sleeping habits. I’ve talked about the frustrating constipation and it is definitely NO joke. What is your stool softener routine? I just started trying them last week and they don’t seem to do anything for me.

That must have been a huge relief. I took my ring off two years ago when it started feeling tight and haven’t been able to put it on since. You’re a real trooper to have kept on a tight ring for so long but congrats on taking control of your new life and now being able to put it on and take it off whenever you please. I’m trying on my ring every few days so getting it on will be something to Celebrate.

Then called surgeon and he said it’s fine which I have heard about them. But when things r moving along and then stop ur like o hell no lol yea I understand the heavy feeling. It just like hits ur stomach hard.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
