Can't even get together now because I'm having a knee replacement surgery this Monday. Maybe in a few months we can all meet half way. Or video chat. Or zoom if I can figure out how to do it again!

I’m in Mansfield. Hour away? Just had VSG 10/13 😉

I think that's about 2 hours away. Not sure. But maybe in the spring we can meet half way. Having knee replacement surgery Monday. Will be out of commission for a while, then the other in February. I'm excited! Not for the pain, but to be able to get around.

How's it going so far? What's the hardest part for you? Hope you're doing well.

What's the status on your surgery and progress?

Laurie we could definitely meet half way!! Would be fun 😊 Knee replacements can be hard I’m sure but you’ll get through!!
Finally getting to go back to work in a week…bored out of my mind. Can only watch so much Netflix 😂 Hardest part has been getting all the Water in. Still can’t get 64 oz bit at least getting all the protein!!
we could always start a text thread for us Ohio people if that’s allowed. Would be nice to offer support to each other!!

Honestly, I'm not even sure I'm doing this site correctly. But yes. Sounds good. Another challenge for you: snacking at work and lunch time. Best of luck.

Good luck with knee surgery and I am sure we all will figure something out rather it’s through zoom or an Ohio thread that would be great. And just to add a bit of good news I WAS APPROVED. I am waiting for the coordinator to call with surgery date so I am sure in the next week or 2 I will probably be starting the liquid diet 😩. I am having it at Hillcrest Hospital.

Congratulations! Are you nervous? Don't be. It's the start of a new life. I can't believe how mine has changed and continues to change. I feel totally different. Where is Hillcrest? And tip: flavored ice cubes and Popsicles for a crunch after just liquids. Keep me posted and good luck!

Thank you Hillcrest Hospital is in Mayfield Heights Ohio so it’s a suburb of Cleveland it’s a Cleveland Clinic Hospital. I think right now I am more excited then nervous but I know I will get nervous like a few days before. Even though I knew this would be coming my mind won’t stop racing on what I need to do to get ready. Not with just myself but family also lol but Whatever it is I am will be ready the day they tell me to be ready 😂

Do you have a spouse and kids to cook for? Are you or have you gone through counseling to get prepared for cooking for others and maybe not being able to eat what their eating, etc. It is a challenge in itself, but fortunately, my cravings are gone! I actually have a harder time figuring out what I want to eat and what agrees with me now.

      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!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      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!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        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.
