Ah, vacation. My first since my surgery in October. It a new and different experience. I know what I can eat at home. I had steamed lobster (a claw) and steamer clams without issue! I brought protein bars.

I was pretty good until the last

I'm not trying to beat a dead horse but I want to understand. If I use whole Spelt flour instead of white flour, some people say that's OK. Others say it still has gluten so no go. Others say just eat small amounts but make it 100% whole grain. Wha

If I had a dollar for everyone who told me that they have a friend-relative-sister who lost tons of weight with WLS (they lump them all together) only to gain it all back, I'd be rich. It's like telling someone who has cancer "I know 12 people who had

what can I eat now? Almost 8 months out! I had a large onion ring last night without problem. I have a mini dark chocolate peanut butter cup once a day. No issue. I haven't gained back a pound and I'm 12 pounds past target.

I'm not going t

I started at 287 (HW). My goal was 185 (I'm 5'11"). Then it was 179. Now I'm at 169.

The problem is nothing really tastes good. My food falls into 3 categories: I hate it. I tolerate it. I like it OK but not really (very few things in thi

Yes, I'm there! That's the good news. The bad news is my doctor wants me to lose another 10 to 12 pounds. Apparently, RNY patients gain back 10% of what they lose before they level off (even the ones that follow everything). So, onward and upward.

I'm going through a phase.  All food goes down badly and nothing really is enjoyable.  Even apple sauce and water taste bad.  Everything is a struggle.

I'm losing weight too fast.  About 10 pounds in the past week.

Please tell me that t

Hi,

I'm 19 pounds from my target!  Yea!  I'm still losing weight pretty quickly.  How will I stop?


jsasquith posted a discussion topic 5 months ago

I have listened to people having complications with various food and many issues of varying kinds.

I have felt blessed that I really have had very little to complain about.  This week that changed some.  All of a sudden hamburger and chicken an

Hi,

I've probably asked some of these questions before.  I need input from long term RNY'ers.  

Once I'm at target weight:

Will I ever be able to eat popcorn?

Will I ever eat food and feel normal (I'm lucky since I've ne

My BMI is under 30.

I use to be "Morbidly Obese"

Then I was "Obese"

Now I'm "Overweight!!"

Who ever thought that being Overweight would be so exciting!

Proud to announce the three month anniversary of my RNY surgery!  I'm adjusting my target from 185 to 180!  I'm feeling good with 35 pounds to go!


jsasquith posted a discussion topic 6 months ago

My first 2+ months everything went perfectly!  In the past week I've had several occasions where foods that never bothered me before are bothering me.  A couple of times I was ready to throw up but I fought it off over several hours.

For the last week I've had a cold.  During this time, my daily weight loss has increased.  Instead of about 1/2 a pound a day I've been losing a pound to pound and a half a day.  I've been eating normally.  Has anyone else experience this?

Rough day!  As part of being a Type 1 diabetic my doctor has had me on cholesterol meds and blood pressure meds.  My cholesterol meds were cut in half a few weeks ago.  My doctor told me to watch for dizziness.  Then I would have to cut the blood press
