Hey There! Any December 2021 Surgery Friends?



Recommended Posts

December 6th! Although worried about it getting postponed since COVID is surging here in the midwest. My pre-op diet starts on Thanksgiving, so I might be opting out of the family celebration - that's a huge test of willpower right off the bat!

When I had my first Bariatric doctor visit and decided to do this, I told myself I was not going to say anything about it to my friends. Not close friends but groups of people we hang out with at times. Well, I've been telling a lot of people and I kick myself every time. I just can't shut up about it. Most people look at me like I have 2 heads and go on about how it's extreme and scary and oh "you better be aware that it will change your life a lot". I want to snap back and say, don't you think I know that and don't you think I've done a lot of research on this before I going in to it? Most don't have any clue about it. My fat friends look and feel guilty when I start talking about it, like I'm going to try and talk them in to it.
I guess, I'm just excited and I want to talk about it. Then I get disappointed when I get weird, uneducated, ignorant responses. That's why I love to get on this site. It brings me back to why I'm doing it and how great my life will be and that I'm not alone.
Hahaha!!! Dont feel guilty! If you think now, your friends give you that look, after surgery, youre gonna be a celebrity! My family members that didnt know i had the RNY immediately found out and started asking my mom how i was, how was the surgery, its like disbelief. Had my surgery on Nov 1. And this Thanksgiving were hosting, so i cant wait to see the look on friends faces when i eat chicken broth with veggies. And at church we had a chili cook off, i did my chili and didnt eat the whole time, and when i told people why, they just hang on you, like a super power. Its funny, really! By the way, im in Ft Myers, so were across from each other. Good luck!

Hi from Kentucky! 🤗

My sleeve is scheduled for December 1 with Dr. Oldham in Louisville, KY.

      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.

      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 🥲

        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.
