    Re: Post-op Day #5 and 12 lbs lost

    The addiction to weighing is real...lol... I also think it's a great motivator in the beginning and understanding the times it doesn't move is also a learning experience. Tracking what you're...

    Re: Post-operative complication: PNEUMONIA.

    It's not that common, but I've seen it happen in the hospital where I work. It usually happens in patients who have comprised breathing to begin with and then the anesthesia and process doesn't...

    Re: They fit!

    I personally love the "freedom" of wearing a bathing suit without a cover up on the whole day! I went to a pool party this weekend and was thinking about how "back before WLS" I would never accept...
  4. Re: Please share you favorite budget-friendly recipe?

    Ricotta bake with ground chicken, recipe on worldaccordingtoeggface.com. It lasts me a few times and freezes well as I find it easy to digest and it's quick, sometimes I add a salad to the side to...

    Re: Sleeved 🤗

    Take it easy, sip, sip and breathe. Keep up the walking, sipping and each day it will get easier. You got this and welcome to the "Losers' Bench"!

    Re: Tomorrow's the Day 🤗

    Breathe, sip, walk and then walk more. Take it easy and listen to your body with drinking, eating and what is good for your new lifestyle. Do your research, listen to others who are successful and...
  9. Re: Low-fat dietary pattern and long-term breast cancer incidence and mortality

    "What was old, is new again"! It all changes more than I change undies:)

    I think we're all savvy enough at this stage to glimpse at the new studies and then move on. In case you haven't heard...
  10. Re: Five Years Out--ACCOUNTABILITY--what are using/doing?

    That darn sugar sets off an "alarm" in the brain that says, "eat more and more" to me! Actually I like the sweets more now than I did before surgery, and that totally scares me too. If I wander...
  11. Re: Five Years Out--ACCOUNTABILITY--what are using/doing?

    kenson, you're dedicated and diligent which are 2 "d" words that are important. We can all get off track, sidetracked about being mindful, whatever you want to call "life getting in the way" of...

    Re: Self Pay and seriously depressed

    Is insurance not covering it because your personal healthcare doesn't have a "bariatric surgery" option included as many employers don't because it costs them more. If this is the case, perhaps you...

    Re: Explain This

    LOL at Dutchie:):)

    My manager who runs the bariatric program here says "it's the shifting sand syndrome" and it makes sense. As we age our bodies change and I find the same thing happening. ...
  14. Re: Gained all my weight back revision for gastric sleeve

    Best of luck, but it's risky to have another revision and some insurances don't cover the revisions. Have you thought about using a medication like Saxenda or anything similar. Also, have you tried...

    Re: 1 month Post Op Dr visit

    You're doing great and I wish you continued success! You can just tell from the tone of your posts that you're very happy with your decision to have the surgery! Just stay hydrated and don't push...

    Get Back On Track! Good luck:)
  17. Re: I knew something was going to sidetrack me

    Take your inches and track them as you move forward. When you don't see the scale moving, the inches will decrease; it's a strange phenomenon! Also, try some food as since you're exercising you ...

    Re: Oasis of Hope Hospital?

    That is actually a very low BMI and unless you have comorbidities associated, our center wouldn't qualify you for surgery. Just saying...

    Re: 4 Months Out

    Stay hydrated, take your inches as they change once the scale stalls; you're going to notice all kind of changes. Men lose more quickly and if you take advantage of the first 9-12 months, you're...

    Re: Full liquids

    Christie,
    I still like my beverages on the warm side and used to love cold. In the summer I loved iced tea and now rarely if ever have that. It's so weird (for lack of a better word) how our...

    Re: Full liquids

    I think it's ironic that I loved eggs before surgery and couldn't wait to try them when I finally got to that stage, however; one lightly scrambled egg felt like a baseball in my chest and I couldn't...

    Re: Full liquids

    Water your protein shakes and drink them slowly. This is actually a time to listen to your surgery tool and don't move too quickly from one stage to another. It's a proven fact that people who move...

    This is a question for your surgeon as all protocol is different depending on your program's guidelines.

    Lisa, you're going to be surprised at how little of tempting foods you really choose after surgery and of course, practicing before surgery is a great idea too! The surgery does something to the...
