  1. I am having great success. I hope you do as well. Keep in mind you will never eat the same again. I am now 3 months post op and can only eat a few bites, 2 -3 times a day. You also cannot eat and drink during the same meal. You can eventually drink more than a tiny sip, but at first a tiny sip is all you can do.

    Hi, I'm new here and I just booked surgery for April 18th with the same doctor you used. I just wanted to "friend" some people who used the same surgeon to help me feel better about my choice.
  3. Lisa, I know what you mean about your knees allowing it. For me it's also my feet, but I'm walking now and that will have to do.
  4. Thank you TarotAces. I would love to know what's behind that id!
    Tomorrow is weigh in day for me, but tonight I'm going to measure. I haven't done that since I started thus journey.
    I am post menopausal, so I don't have that problem, but I do retain water. The doctor put me on a water pull and I can tell the difference in my feet. They are chubby suckers!
    I want to vent tonight. I watched a lot of Hallmark Christmas movies over the holidays. It's too cold to be outside and I could build a fire and watch a movie. I love movies! I noticed that every other commercial is about food! HUGE meals, platters actually! And it's so hard to watch those commercials and not want to eat some. Thank God this surgery has kept me from eating those HUGE meals. It doesn't stop me from wanting to eat them.

    Surgery went well, but I caught a terrible cold on the way home, doing better now, I would love to start jogging again too, when my weight & knees allow it

    Thanks! I'm pretty happy with them.

    I haven't lost any more over the last 4 days (But am premenstrual and likely retaining water, so any weight I HAVE lost would just show as a stall I think, which is what is happening). The last few days have been a real struggle (I almost always eat more right before my period, and haven't done that). I have successfully NOT turned to food for comfort despite actually being hungry. It's a start, for sure.

    Anyway, your congratulations are perfectly timed as I really need the extra support right now. Thank you for taking the time to drop me a message

    And, CONGRATS on your crazy awesome loss!!!! I'm totally still impressed.

    Just stopping over to say Congratulations on your loss!!!

    You're kickin' butt and taking names!
  8. I'm starting mine next week. This week we are finishing up the clean up on a house we need to sell. I am swamped and have no time, but I am doing other exercises.

    Hello doll! Completed my first day of C25K. It was amazing. Wrote a blog about it. What day are you starting yours?? Happy New Year!!
  10. I have been telling people that I eat way less and I'm walking a lot. Soon I'll be cleared for other exercise and I'll start lifting weight. I have told a few, but very few. I didn't even tell my mom or sister. I would tell my mom, but she won't be able to keep it from my sister, so I keep it to myself.

    I have a few friends that I told and they get it. Everyone else when they ask I just say I eat wayyyyyy less (which is true) & I work out 6 days a week. It's not lying. Some people just don't "get it" They don't realize how hard it is for us and that if we don't make good choices all of it can go POOF just like that! Congratulations on your weight loss so far!!
  12. As of today I am down 61 pounds from the weight that made me decide to do something different with my life. I am so happy I am on this path. I want to share the news with everyone, but not really. So many people will think I took the easy way out. Little do they know.

    Has anyone else not told people about this journey?
  13. I am 8 days post-op. I got my stitches out yesterday. I only lost 3 pounds, but my doctor told me not to worry.
    I came home and looked at calories and sugars in the apple juice, gatorade, jello, etc... I am surviving on sugar. I'm done with that. I picked up bariatric chewable vitamins and protein shakes. I am going to watch sugar and ca loris this week.
    Overall I am down 28.6 pounds from my highest weight, so at least I'm going in the right direction.
    I'm ready to set some goals on weight or size loss.
    Does anyone have advice on setting realistic goals?

Bypass after sleeve

by Fatbgone on 03-11-2020 at 04:06 PM
Has anyone had the bypass after a sleeve? I'm curious what the long-term results have been.

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!
