    Re: Single and alone

    The flip side of having lots of people around is having people subtly pulling you back to your old habits. I for instance had to convince a two and four year old they could not run into me or sit on...

    Re: Progress, Loose Skin, & Other Thoughts

    They say wait a year after goal(or at least stabilizing). I was freaked out like you. I actually had a consult scheduled with a surgeon after I hit goal who did my wife's mommy makeover. I had to...

    Re: Water consumption

    If your thirst is diabetes related then the surgery and diet from it will help since many people go into remission from diabetes due to the surgery. If you haven't yet you should get a blood panel...

    Re: Not eating after surgery

    That's chemical. When you drop refined sugars regular fruit tastes like candy because your body loses the sweet tolerance it had before.

    Re: Pre Op Diet... I need help

    Do what they tell you to do. Keep in mind that if you can do that kind of preop diet the after surgery diet will be much easier to comply with.

    Re: Eating Out

    I'd say get the appetizer and entree take a few bites of each and take the leftover home for 2-3 more meals. If anyone bitches then they brought the issue up and you can quietly make your comment on...

    Re: "Full"signals

    I get burps and "gurgles" which might be exactly what you are describing. Too big a bite for me feels like a rock when it hits my stomach. Most important thing on that is to chew a lot.

    Re: Women's Sizes?!

    Men don't try stuff on that much. We know our size go in pick stuff out(or our SO picks it out and we aren't there). If upon putting it on for the first time it doesn't fit we return it and don't...

    Re: 24 days post op

    Yeah like others have said stall. One other thing to mention is you aren't getting many calories so cardio may be hurting at this point. If your body senses you aren't getting calories and you are...

    Re: Surgery Thursday

    You should be fine. The purpose of preop weight loss is to shrink the fat on your liver to make surgery easier for the doc. Your liver is "in the way". A smaller liver means easier access. It's...
  11. Re: Need help Having problem keeping food down.

    Slower is good, might also keep track of what you ate when you get it. For example it took me 10 months to be able to eat salad without rumbles. Everyone seems to have something that they take a...
  12. Re: Philadelphia Inquirer: Weight loss prior to bariatric surgery carries risks

    My doc had me lose 20 pounds to shrink my liver even though I was self pay. He had me on a diet that mirrored post op to do it.
  13. Re: 6 week anniversary -- and still on the stall. No weight loss since surgery. In a dark place.

    Please log your food and post it here. I'd cut protein bars and replace with no or low sugar shakes. Protein bars have significant sugars and carbs. If you are doing shakes make sure you aren't...

    Re: Where do I start!

    That's not a bad meal plan. If sugar is your issue I'd try a protein based snack like nuts or beef jerky in the afternoon. Even good sugars can prevent you from dropping the sweet tooth. Or you...

    Re: 3 month Post-Visit .. with Doctor

    Don't worry City folk with post docs are confused by the medical industry and their practices. Doc office scales are always higher than home scales. Some of it is clothes/keys/phone. I'm a similar...
  16. Re: Just a few thoughts about this Forum...

    Thanks! Your doing great and btw donuts are the worst since they are liquid bread with sugar added made in a shape that maximizes surface area and then fried in oil and covered with sugar.

    Re: 2yrs ppst opt - To reset

    As both of the ladies said it's really not about "resetting" the pouch it's about changing you diet back to what it should be. The pouch hasn't grown what's grown is your appetite from eating empty...

    Sugar free Popsicles are your friend! Glad you are doing well otherwise. The near belly button incision is usually the one they pulled your stomach out through so that's why you feel it more, it's...

  20. Re: Iíve never seen my weight fluctuate like it is right now.

    Think almonds are better but both have high fat content. The big issue on eating them at night is that the high salt content in them prevents you from shedding water over night and the morning after...

    I'd toss my back out twice a year for a decade. It was so reoccurring that I just had all the pain meds and muscle relaxers pre prescribed and could do the physical therapy at home(I had the...
  22. Re: Creating a food schedule -- ongoing experiences and maybe your good advice?

    Sip water at all times, you can't drink fast enough otherwise to get it and your food in. Stop water while you are eating and in the window before and after your doc says but otherwise have some...
