February 2022 Surgery Buddies

I think my Vitamin has that worked into it. What's weird is my nails are growing like crazy. Like never before and are super hard and tough when before they were brittle but the hair is falling out. Hoping it's temporary.

Well everyone I will be 3 months on the 8th and I’m officially down 60lbs and saying goodbye to the 300s. Still eating very little I eat about 4 bites and I’m full. I still have to drink a Protein Shake a day because I can’t eat enough but I do drink plenty of Water. Hope everyone else is doing well!!!

Congratulations on getting out of the 300’s. It’s a shame there is not a clever little name for that like onederland because it’s just as big of a deal. Yay for you!!

Wondering if anyone else feels like they can eat more than others. I can easily eat 3 oz of chicken and 1 c of salad. Wondering if I stretched my pouch out already. My weight has stalled since mid-April and before that stalled from beginning of April to mid-April. I only lost 4 lbs in April.

Coming up on my 3 month this Saturday. Crazy how fast it goes. Weight is coming off every week. I have on and off days with eating. Sometimes I can barely take 2 bites, sometimes I can eat a cup of food in one meal. But I'm happy with my progress.

I really want to start working out again. I manage long walks but nothing high intensity.

My arms are getting so saggy. I dream of getting the skin removed on them.

I keep putting off working out but I have been planting a lot of flowers and working in the yard so I would think that kind of counts. My weight hasn’t budged for almost four weeks. It is very frustrating. I don’t eat much at all and when I do I normally end up getting sick later.
I feel like it has been three very LONG months. I am just now starting to bounce back from horrible depression and anxiety.

Def counts. Gardening and yard work is hard work. I sweat up a storm.

I'm sorry to hear that. Stalls are so frustrating. If you're consistently getting sick I'd suggest checking with your team. Report to them what you've been eating, how fast or slow you eat, drinking habits etc. They should be able to help.

Sometimes I've seen suggestions that focusing on Protein (or Protein Shakes in your case since you're having trouble eating) and lots of hydration can break stalls too.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
