    Re: Social eating

    My surgeon gives out cards to show to your server at a restaurant to order off the kids menu or get a smaller portion. No way would I do that! Totally unnecessary and embarrassing in my opinion. ...

    Re: How did you feel 6-7 months out?

    I felt totally normal at that stage. I lost weight most weeks, but had some gains or "stay the sames."

    While you won't have that full feeling like you will die if you eat one more bite anymore,...
  5. Re: Need help Having problem keeping food down.

    Could you switch doctors? It seems a little odd that the throwing up started up after losing 80 pounds. (If it happens to people it's more common early on).

    I have no medical advice, hope your...

    Re: Social eating

    We go out all the time! I will typically order a healthy appetizer, something like ahi tuna. Or a small salad with chicken on top. Hubby hates to share, so If I am ordering a meal I order...

    Re: The pre op diet and why it is necessary

    So true! The whining about food drives me C.R.A.Z.Y. Do you want to be fat the rest of your life or do you want to be healthy and regular-sized? Talk about a no brainer.

    And then people not...

    Re: Social eating

    Totally true about no one really caring what you eat, they are eating their own stuff. My typical line at a restaurant is, "I'm not that hungry, I'll just have the ____." That way others probably...

    Re: Social eating

    Very early on, yes. You can't eat much at all. I remember at 6 weeks we went out with friends and I ordered a small salad with a chicken breast on top. I felt like I would die after a few bites of...

    Re: Liquid diet help

    JUST DO IT. If you want a safe surgery with no complications, following your doctor's orders is of the utmost importance.

    If you can't control your urges now, how will you do it later? This is...

    Re: Aloha from the Big Island of Hawaii

    You will be thrilled with your decision, but those early days aren't much fun for some people. I was lucky, only took my pain meds for a day or two. I would nap a lot if you can, then walk a little...

    Re: Liquid diet

    Stick to it. You say "you can't and won't stick to it." Don't have the surgery. You need to follow the rules, especially at the beginning. They are to help make your surgery safer.

    Re: Dumping syndrome

    Dumping happens with the bypass, not the sleeve. A few drinks once of twice a month won't hurt you, and definitely won't make you an alcoholic. Most doctors advise waiting a while after surgery...

    Yep, follow your surgeon's orders. I was on protein drinks and other liquids for 2 weeks, mushy food for week three, and then other foods introduced each week. I was cleared for all food at week 6....
