Use the egg yolks, unless you have a medical reason not to, they hold all the flavor and will help you feel full.

Snacks should be meat or dairy or vegetables - no fruit!!!

Protein, fat and vegetables - the healthy way to lose and maintain. Real food, no substitutes or frankenfoods. Everything should come from your kitchen and not have started off in some laboratory somewhere

Topic: RE: Mobility question after surgery

Once back in my room, I was up, walking the halls and completely caring for myself.

Day 2, I was home, off narcotics and caring for my 11 month old son.

Not sure if you're like me or my partner, who if he has a cold, thinks he's dying I think your ability to care for yourself is entirely up to you.

This sounds like it's more about them than you. If they bring a cake, let them eat it and take it with them or throw it in the trash. The firmer you stand, the less likely they are to do it again.

Don't worry about upsetting them, this is very selfish of them!

Did they check your estrogen levels as well as your testosterone? That may be a weird question to ask a guy but it could be related to your weight loss

Topic: RE: Mums of Young Ones?

My son was 11 months when I had mine, and I was looking after him, on my own 2 days after surgery. I didn't take any narcotics after surgery day and so was able to be responsible. He was like a little monkey so I would let him climb into his crib etc and just guide him. If he wanted a cuddle, it was done sitting down. Wholly possible if needs must

He's now 6ft 3 and 14 lol.

Topic: RE: Have to Vent for a Second

Insensitive but not wrong. My primary doctor told me that I am the healthiest RNY patient he has and I believe him. I'm very vigilant about everything and my blood levels are all great. This has nothing to do with my doctor and EVERYTHING to do with me. Bear in mind that I am 13 years out this week. The excitement has gone, but I still plug away at this thing.

Reading posts here most days shows me that a lot of people do not take the time to learn and advocate for themselves. I could pick out potential failures just from how some act on posts here.

Your future weight and health are in your hands.

I've been here over 13 years and have seen several WLSers die from alcoholism. We are a very vulnerable group.

Having said that I do drink, red wine only, on occasions.

Let me be first to say that my DS has now saved my life for the second time... First time was by losing over 200 pounds and getting rid of all my health issues. I'm very thankful for that in itself. Well, it has now saved my life again. I finally went in to get my routine mammogram and they found a lump - I have invasive ductal carcinoma stage 1 and I'm going in for my lumpectomy on Tuesday. They told me that because of how dense my breast tissue is, if I hadn't lost my weight, they probably wouldn't have found the cancer so soon. It is VERY curable at this time. I'm very thankful to God for orchestrating my health needs. HE told me "no" to my skin surgery because HE knew there was something more pressing for me to take care of.

So... please get your boobies checked... you never know what is lurking behind all that excess fat and tissue... I'm thankful I did!

My sister was just diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer - it is in her lymph nodes. Her doctor kept nagging and nagging her to get a mammogram and she finally did!

She can't have surgery until after chemo and radiation.

Good luck with your surgery and thanks for the PSA. We must look after ourselves and this is a kind reminder

You're a champ. We see people AFTER surgery who make worse choices than you!

If you don't want your friend to share on your behalf, let her know. It will only get worse after surgery!

Topic: RE: Does loose skin ever get better over the years?

Congratulations on losing that amount of weight without surgery. It really is an awesome feat.

I would give you the same advice I would give to anyone who lost a lot of weight, with or without surgery - maintain the weightloss at least a year, if not two before going under the knife for plastics. I'll bet most of us here have lost weight over and over, but for ALL of us, maintenance is the hard part. Make sure you can sustain your new lifestyle before parting with $$$$

Topic: RE: I did tempt fate!

I'm a couple of weeks away from 13 years out and I still don't have "tastes" of desserts. NEVER. No ice cream, no birthday cake, definitely nothing from Cheesecake Factory. I'm not perfect, I have had regain a time or ten, but this is one area I don't broach.

I do dump and it's hell. I would recommend getting to goal before testing whether you dum*****t.

Topic: RE: Is surgery for me? Severe nut allergies

Thank you!!! I did it.

OP, if you have a severe nut allergy why not put together a liquid/soft food diet that doesn't put you in jeopardy?

Protein shakes are not absolutely necessary and certainly if there is any chance of causing anaphylaxis. I've never drunk a protein shake or eaten a protein bar and I'm perfectly healthy.
