How do you post a "status update"



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm new so I'm not as familiar with this website. But I would like to post a "status update" but I can't figure out how to do that. Obviously, I can post on topic threads but that isn't what I'm interested in doing.

Any instructions would be appreciated!

Below is what I am seeing when I go to the status updates page. As far as I can tell, there isn't anywhere for me to create new content.

Click on "create" at the top of your screen and select "status." You can do an update there. It doesn't look like many people respond to those though.

Hi Lynn,

My "create" tab doesn't have a "status" option. image.png.a2ac12a05df98913787d268660404e74.png

Are you trying to update your "progress" i.e. your weight and stuff? That would be to go to the top of the screen where your user name is, then the arrow next to it, then click on "my surgery" then "progress". (progress is to the left on the "my surgery" screen)/

No, I just notice that there is a "status updates" section that people seem to be able to post to that aren't topic thread-worthy. But I can't find anywhere that lets me post a status update. I emailed bariatricpal using their "contact us" link but no one has gotten back to me and it's been about 5 days now.

I was able to figure out how to update my weight and stuff yesterday! I only weigh on Sunday mornings so seeing that I lost 5 pounds this week made me want to explore the website more and see if I could post on the status updates like I'm seeing others do.

Hrm... I just looked and I do have the status update option. Maybe it has to do with what type of device or browser you are using? I'm using a PC and chrome.

I just tried going onto chrome and it still doesn't display for me. I am also using my PC and not the phone app. So weird.

That's odd. Right above "topic" in that screen I have "Update." I'm on my Mac desktop, not my phone. Sorry, I guess I can't help then.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      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 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      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.
