A dog Named Boo! Newbie Public Service Message



Recommended Posts

I am seeing a trend towards new people asking the same fears that a ton of us had! I am only 8 Months out the exact age of the puppy in the picture! he is getting bigger and i have gotten smaller! Here is my view on the main things i see in here on a daily basis

a. Nobody can say if you keep going the way you currently are you will live a happy disease free life! So jump on the journey or enjoy your disease filled short lived life ending up in a coffin early and missing out on grand kids, spouse, etc time

b. Mind over matter! The mind is a wicked tool and can be a wicked enemy, Find something to ride this journey out with - Mine was this dog, Yours kid be a spouse friend or a pet. Do not let you mind whip your ass! Get control of it and the surgery is a tool - You have to run the workshop!

c. DO not panic and do not fear, So you lost only 2 pounds this week that is 104 pounds a year! Yea like you could do that without WLS.

D. IgNore the haters and negative from others, This is your journey and stupid people do stupid things so just become ICE b***h!

e. No two of us are the same, So you need to adjust your Vitamins and minerals and diets to your body! you also have to move and work out - it really helps the plan

I am asking the wizards in here to add on the advice and help - Getting the same posts over and over and I agree i was uneducated and crashed big time, Feel free to read back to my crash post

ALSO DO NOT BUY A PUPPY UNLESS YOU REALIZE IT IS LIKING HAVE A BABY AGAIN ON MONSTER DRINKS! A special thanks goes out to WInston for beating me and making me move for the last 8 months - a tool to my success! Given to my by my girlfriend and kids

Great post even though I am a newbie. You nailed it with your post as each of us are in charge of our own journey to better health and quality of life. I like straight shooters who say it like it is as you have. So please keep posting even though you’ve reached your goal weight. I’m going to follow you as you have inspired me with your weight loss. Congratulations!

I am thinking this is due to the boatloads of miss-information provided by (unfortunately...) the professionals we depend on and our health insurance companies where it seems surgical pre-approval policy is always a moving target.

I am thankful there are people who have already ridden the WLS roller coaster (or are still waiting in line....) and then take the time and effort to share their experiences, good and bad.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
