Hey guys...

I am sick!!! I am super congested and have low energy. Who ever said the bands get tight during colds/illnesses....was right.... Ironically, days before I go to my 6 month appt and hopefully 2nd fill... I get my restriction back. How the heck does that happen???

I have tried to read and keep up with your posts. I'm sorry I missed the meeting on Saturday. I wish I were there. It sounds like you all had lots of fun. I would have loved to see Donna in those baggy clothes.

I am currently holding at 197.3, this morning. I am super low carbing and high protein-ing. I hope to drop at least 1lb by Thursday's appt. Not sure about the fill, as I do not want to end up too tight.

Pat-I see you and I are at the same weight....Way to go girl. What size clothing can you fit???? Are all of your 16's gone????

I hope all are well. TTYL.......................

Hi Ladies!!!

Ali & Laurel sorry we didn’t get to meet! I guess you left early and someone wanted to speak with me about the Sleeve at the end of the meeting.

This weekend I did my bi-annual trip to the mall. Great for walking! I found a cheap way to eat, just visit the free samples! I always wonder how it will be eating out as I can’t eat much but the free samples are enough to fill me up! Next weekend its Sam’s club for lunch! Haha

Laurel – 8.4+ pounds in a week awesome!

Monique – Get well soon!!!!!!

Good morning everyone!

John, I did have to leave early as just being out for an hour wore me out. I saw you talking privately with someone as I was leaving and didn't want to interrupt to introduce myself. Next time for sure.

Mo, I hadn't heard that the band gets tight when you are ill. Good information to know. Hope you feel better soon.

Drum roll... I am down 10.6 pounds since surgery on the 22nd. Who knew that not eating had such a direct connection to weight loss??? LOL Obviously not me, but I think I am catching on now.

Nicole, I can't feel my port. Do you think Baggs forgot to put one in???? I am sure it will make an appearance soon.

So, today I believe I will start with a Protein Shake and a walk on the treadmill. Maybe only 10 minutes or so, but it will be a start.

Have a great day everyone.

I sure hope all are well and the quietness in here is a good sign that you all are working out or something. LOL.

Ashley, congratulations on getting to goal. I'm really proud of you.

Mo, good luck at your appointment this morning. I hope it goes exactly as you'd like it. Onederland is looking mighty fine on you!

All's well here. Was in SAC a few days on business again this week. I've been in the dreaded two week stall but feeling ok and staying very positive. I still think it's incredible to eat 500 calories a day and not shed an ounce. What a mystery our bodies are.

Have a fun day everyone.

      Waiting for surgery date…still undecided sleeve vs. RNY
      · 1 reply
      1. Jodi74

        I had the sleeve 9/13/21 and just had a the sleeve to bypass revision on 5/3/23. My HW:321 (I'm 5' 8" tall)and I went down to 254 while doing my 7 nutrition appts required by my insurance company. So just changing the way I ate, I was able to get those pounds off w/o surgery. I have many Co morbidities mixed hyperlipidemia, diabetes, htn, MI due to covid. I had read and done quite a bit of research so I could choose the best surgery for myself and learned previous to my sleeve that someone as heavy as I was and all the Co morbidities I have, it was better in my situation to have the bypass but, my DR. Kept saying I would have the same results with the sleeve. Every time I would see him and say to him that I felt it would be best to just get the bypass, he just shot me down and said the sleeve would produce the same results! Why he kept asking me which surgery I wanted at each visit just to tell me the sleeve was all I needed still a mystery to me????? Let's just say, my Dr. Was wrong you see, the surgeries are both about the same price, but the sleeve is easier for the surgeon to perform so I think my DR. Just wanted the easier since he would get the same pay no matter what. After sleeve surgery I did go from 254 to 226 BUT that's just because you are healing from surgery and can't eat anyway as soon as I recovered! I was starving non-stop. I went right back up and stayed at 248. Still had to take cholesterol meds, blood pressure meds, diabetes meds etc. I'm now almost 4 weeks post op the bypass and feel great. I'm not starving all the time, went from 248 to 220 and doing great! Not only what you just read about my story, you also hear about a lot of people needing revision after the sleeve due to acid reflex like severe acid reflex all the time. So the bypass surgery is the only way to stop This reflux if you acquire this condition after sleeve surgery. The regain possibility is higher with sleeve than bypass so just think about all these factors before you make your decision. I wish I would have just had the bypass and saved myself from having to have 2 surgeries in under 2 years. The bypass surgery was also less painful for me lol! I don't know if the new surgeon was better or what but, I was home the next day. After the sleeve I had to stay an extra night due to the nausea and vomiting all night and for pain control.

      Who knew Filet Mignon would make me so sick. Leftovers from Mother's Day.  On the upside..next day I started walking outside a little over a mile without stopping or back pain. That's a bit deal for me considering how inactive I've been for years. Woot woot!

      Five-week follow-up for gastric bypass and now on lifetime food plan. No restrictions.  In all that time I was fortunate to get sick only one time, week 1, on Easter. Chicken broth...go figure.
