    I wouldn't recognise you if I personally knew you, you have changed beyond recognition! well done x
  2. I am doing fantastic. I am down from 323 to 181. I was a size 24+ and now I'm in a 12.
    I cannot eat bread, because it balls up in my stomach. I can't eat shrimp because it makes me throw up.
    I have thrown up several times, due to overeating or drinking. Yes, you can drink too much at one time.
    When you are eating a meal, do not drink anything. You don't have room for both. A kids meal will be plenty big enough. Take home your left overs. They will become future meals.
    If you eat at home, think about how much a child would eat.
    It's still hard to know that I can't eat some foods, or have a ton of it. It's good, but hard to get used to.
    At the hotel, drink the broth. If you choose to eat, eat jello. Don't worry about the sugar free. They have popsicles and those are awesome. You are going to be shocked at how little you can drink or eat. It will get easier and you will be able to eat and drink more.
    If you drink pop, give it up! You need to have your protein and not fill up on empty calories. Walmart sells Premier protein drink and it's delicious and cheap!
    I am so happy I had this surgery. It's changed my life. All for the better.
    After surgery, I experienced very little pain. I hope your experience is the same.

    Hi April I was just reading some of your post how are things going for you. How is the process going I'm having surgery with Dr Marcelo Hernandez in June. You've been at this a little over a year now what are some of your does and don't you wish you would have known?
  4. It has really been slow going for awhile now, but at least I'm still losing and not gaining.
    My dad passed away and that has caused me to not do what I normally do, then my husband deployed. I am dealing with 3 mortgages, because we have one house that has been for sale for more than 6 months, 1 house we live in and on rental that is now empty. Life has just sucked.
    I am working on getting my head together and moving on. Prayers would be appreciated.

  6. Down to a 14 now!

    Thanks!! You are rocking it too!! You are almost to 100 lbs total weight loss!! That is freaking awesome!!! You should be so proud of yourself. Yes I am very close to goal. Creeping a little closer each week. I am pretty sure these last 19 pounds are going to be the hardest and take longer but I am ok with that because I am sure I will get there. Slow and steady!
  9. Today I weighed in at 70 pounds less than my surgery weight and 96 pounds less than my pre-journey weight. I am so excited! Everyone who sees me is flabbergasted and I'm loving it!
    My doctor (primary physician) didn't think I could reach my goal of 160 with a sleeve and really wanted me to get a bypass. I am so happy that I did what I wanted. If I don't reach 160, I'll be OK. However, I don't see any reason I won't meet it. Summer is just around the corner and I will be super active.
    My husband is being deployed in July and I am hoping I can really surprise him with my new body when he gets home. If I end up needing a tummy tuck, then I plan on doing it while he is gone.
    Life is good!

    How did you like Dr Marcello Hernandez, the hospital and hotel? Did anyone accompany you? I am having mine done 3/3 and getting nervous. Reading about a few people with complications.

    How much have you lost total to date?
  14. I am doing amazing well. My family doctor had wanted me to get the bypass, but I had read about so many possible complications I stuck to my guns and got the sleeve. She didn't think I could even lose this much weight let alone reach my goal. I plan to prove her wrong. She will be plesantly surprised at my next appointment on Monday.

People are noticing

by Fatbgone on 01-15-2017 at 10:10 PM
I get tickled when people tell me how thin I look.
I want to laugh! 250 pounds is not thin. What are they going to say when I am down to my goal. A few have been worried I might be sick, but mostly nice comments at this time.
I have not shared I had surgery with everyone. I don't feel the need to share thst. I almost wish I hadn't told anyone. I am losing weight because I am eating very little and exercising. It's true. Surgery does not change that.

When do you start to eat more that 1 or 2 bites of food.

by Fatbgone on 01-01-2017 at 07:23 PM
I'm 7, almost 8 weeks post surgery and expected to be able to eat more by this time. I'm not in love with prote in shakes and would like to start eating food.
I can take a bite or 2, but then I feel it.
Is this normal? Should I go see my doctor again?
The discomfort subsides when the food digest, but it sucks until then.
I am trying to not eat and drink together.
The plus side of this is that I'm losing weight and that was the goal. I just want to know if this

I'm stuck

by Fatbgone on 12-19-2016 at 12:58 PM
My weight is stuck, but I feel like I'm still losing weight. I guess I need to stop watching the scale.
I still can't eat much in the way of real food. For now I am living off the nutrients I get from items I drink and popsicles. I did not know how good they can be.
I think I want too much too fast. I want the weight to vanish and I want to be able to eat. I was hoping I could eat part of Christmas dinner, but it looks like I'll be observing from a far.

At what point

1 month post-op and I still can barely eat anything

by Fatbgone on 12-10-2016 at 06:35 PM
What can I eat? It seems like I throw up everything I try to eat. What have you found that was easy on the stomache?
On the positive side I was down 26 pounds before surgery and now I'm down another 26. Who-hoo!

Post surgery

by Fatbgone on 11-12-2016 at 06:01 PM
I had my surgery on the 9th. It went much better than expected. I am currently concerned that I might become dehydrated because I don't think I'm getting enough.liquids in. I realize it's early in recovery, but I can tell this is going to work. I don't see how people gain their weight back or don't lose it with a sleeve. That seems impossible.
I haven't set a weight goal, but I have set a size goal.
I am currently a size 22. By Christmas I want to be a size 18-20. I think I can
