- HEALTH TRACKER
6 months and you were more than halfway there!!! That's terrific!! Weekends are rough, hard to stay on track when the schedule is so different... I'm sure you'll figure it out! Hope the numbers for month 7 are as good! Mary
I am only about 7 months it and feel that I sometimes don't feel full. I have done a five day pouch test and it did allow me to feel full again. It had something to do with the slider foods. Trying to still keep to protein and veggies and weighing out 4 oz. it seems like good news for you that the pouch is still small. Hope all goes well with you. Are you aware of any local groups that meet? My surgery was in Philadelphia and the groups are monthly but a pain to go over to the city after work. I do make the monthly group meeting with the therapists and a small group of Jefferson patients and feel I should still get some one on one with the Trappist too.
I am still feeling my way around this site looking for added support.
Its been years since I have been on. I am 6 years out from RNY. I have had many struggles with my surgery and I am in need of a good support group and gastro doctor who will work with post gastric pt's who have had difficulties and understand their needs.
If anyone can guide me that would be great!!!
The Board's been quiet....and I haven't been online too much... Just wanted to say Hi to the old timers in NJ, and , of course, welcome the newbies.... Has anyone tried to plan an IGT? I know Tom was over-busy a bit back.... I'm just wondering if I missed anything? :)
Anyway, I'm still maintaining my weight loss, never reached my 'normal weight' goal but keeping the 260 lb loss off , and struggling to reach my protein goals, my vitamin levels, etc... Sigh... If only proteins were as easy to eat as carbs... LOL....
If you've read this far, post something, a roll-call, saying where you are in your journey, how is it going, and let's see if we can pick the Jersey board up again!! Mary C

14 pounds lost before surgery. My first ticker is when I hit onderland: this was my goal when I started on this journey. I want to focus on that right now...once I get there I can reevaluate.
My second ticker is my dream goal. Even if I only visit there for a short time, it would be nice to see that number just once. I am pretty sure I'll need plastics to hit this goal.
