Any April 2021 surgeries?!



Recommended Posts

Yes, I feel the same! I scare myself with the amount of food I can eat while grazing. I am actively working on set meals instead of snacking. I don’t know about you but the constipation is real! I’ve been taking stool softeners and Fiber every morning to help but ugh.

Congrats on reaching Wonderland! I can relate to the Hair loss issue. It started later than expected for me. I thought I had dodged that bullet, but nope. Shockingly I wasn't as mad about it as I thought I would be, but I'm not thrilled. Hoping it stops soon also.

When you graze, do you feel full? What helps you stop grazing. I'm scared so I posted a question about that today. I want to stop. I had not grazed during this entire process. I don't want a bad habit like that to sabotage all this hard work. My grazing is in addition to meals so it's too much food intake. Although the scale shows me fluctuating in a one pound range.

Also, congrats on your A1C levels and reducing medicine! Wooho! Feels great doesn't it!

I still honestly can't say if it makes me full I don't get the full feeling like I used too. I have my 7th month check up on the 22nd I will ask the Dr about it? The fact that I'm losing says I'm doing something ok, but is it hurting me in the long term is what I need to know. Will keep you posted. Take Care

Hey guys I am 6 almost 7 months out (April 27) and I started measuring my food, by volume not by weight, (so I use measuring cups) I do 1/2 a cup of everything the portions seem accurate, well it’s to much. I’ve mostly just been intuitive eating meaning I eat until I’m full, I try not to over eat but now when I do that there’s sO much left on my plate. Any advice will help.

Hi there, can you tell me more about moving from weight to volume? I still use weight when home. Quick question based on your question. How did you choose the volume amount? Sounds like it might be too much which may be why you have so much leftover. Maybe cut back the volume some since you are finding it's more food than you need. I was scared to eat beyond the initial feeling of full. So, I still stop eating as soon as I feel it, regardless of how much I still have. I just put the food back or save it. I'm still weary of overeating so I just stop whenever I feel that sensation. Good luck!

I went for my 7th month checkup and surprisely the goal I set for myself according to my surgeon is unrealistic I thought I needed to lose another 40 pounds he said he would be pleased if I lose just 20-25 more. So, Wow I am happy and confused at the same time. Lol. Hope everyone has a great holiday.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
