    Re: 4 months post surgery, feeling discouraged

    Re: 4 months post surgery, feeling discouraged

    I agree with you, 55 lbs is amazing. I keep telling myself that. Never have I ever been able to lose that much on my own. I haven't done anything special to celebrate. That's a fantastic idea. And, I...

    4 months post surgery, feeling discouraged

    Today marks 4 months since surgery for me. Sadly, I had a gain this week...trying to remain positive about that, after all, it was only 2 lbs. I know it's going to fluctuate. Especially with it being...

    Re: Weight!!

    Mine didn't give parameters either other than a 2 week clear liquid pre-op diet. I was floored the day of surgery to find out I had lost 23lbs! Best wishes that your surgeon is satisfied with your...

    Re: How do you measure your weight loss?

    Thanks everyone for the insight. I know it's mostly a matter of personal preference on how someone measures their loss. I was just curious how the majority seem to do it. Seems like the general...

    How do you measure your weight loss?

    So, one of my best friends is one of the few people who know I've had surgery. I use her as a support tool as she had gastric bypass several years ago. She's been a big help to me. She likes to check...

    I'm never sure where to post things! lol

    Just a little light hearted funny I thought some of y'all would enjoy. I have a patient who, almost daily, her sister before coming in to visit her for the day would call and say, "I'm at such and...

    Re: Gastric Sleeve Failed

    I'm so glad I read this thread. I recently bought peanut butter because, while high calorie, I had always thought it was a "good source of protein". Guess I'll nix that idea! lol

    Re: I miss water!

    I totally agree it is a small loss compared to the benefits of surgery. I never said otherwise, just that I miss water.

    Re: I miss water!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who misses water. It's not that I can't drink it, or don't want to drink it. It's the fact that everyone says to sip...maybe instead of saying I miss water, I should've...

    I miss water!

    I know it sounds weird because, obviously, we're still supposed to drink our fluids following surgery, but I really miss water. I think I miss water more than I do most foods. I've been sip, sip,...

    Some people were just born to be asshats. They were probably the first people to criticize you and say you needed to lose weight before. As others said, if you're comfortable in your skin and your...
