Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

The biggest down side of surgery I have experienced so far...



Recommended Posts

Like everyone else, I have purchased a whole new wardrobe. Down to Medium and Small top size, and mostly size 8 with some size 6 pants. And with these sizes, I am having fun buying "CUTE" outfits. When I am big I focus on functional outfits, but I like the way these fit so I want cute too! BUT......... my 16 year old daughter keeps RAIDING MY CLOSET! I can't tell you how many of my sweaters she has already stolen. A co-worker and I were talking about shoes and I mentioned how my feet shrank. She asked what size and said she had a closet full of shoes she barely wore that don't fit her anymore. She gave me a bag full. Then my daughter immediately tried steeling the first pair she saw me wear! I feel like I have to add locks on my closet doors!

LMAO... I guess there are worse problems to have, but thought you might be amused like I am (when I am not mad that I can't wear the new top that I planned to wear today).

I'd definitely call that a non-scale victory, although it sounds like your daughter is the victorious one...😁

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
