Hi All.

Awhile ago I was part of a post discussing upper back pain that followed surgery. I had mentioned that I would bring this up at my 4 month visit to TWH.

Seems it is caused by the changing of you centre of gravity, and once you

The last few days I have been eating non-stop. I am not eating huge volume but I can't seem to stop.

I am trying to keep it to protein and fruit. But I am eating about 1200 calories a day. I don't want to re-gain.

Any and all advi

Ladies and men that my choose to wear ladies clothes...I don't judge...

I have 2.5 bins of 3x and 4x clothes that I am getting rid of that don't fit me anymore. Most in excellent condition business casual and casual. If you are transitioning

I am posting these pics because I need encouragement and I need to hear good comments. The people that I was relying on heavily to support me seem to be getting bitter and only have negative things to say about my journey. So I know I can come here and

I am so impressed with my NSV. I normally sweat like crazy no matter what I do. Standing doing dishes I am like a wet dog. Soaked.

I just realized...I TPS'd the walls in my kitchen, inside and outside of my cupboards, pulled out my fridge,

Is anyone else in the same boat. I have a lot to lose, over 100. I am just over a month post op and down 40 pounds but I don't see the difference at all.

When you have a lot to lose does it take longer to see the weight loss?

I am one month post op. Can I have diet pop?


Lisa C. posted a discussion topic 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Good morning everyone.

I have a carb question and I think the Vets on this board probably know more than the NUTs.

When it comes to carbs, the NUTs encourage you to incorporate them into your daily diet, of course eating protein first

I am 13 days post op. What sort of exercise is acceptable without setting me back at this point. I do walk about a kilometre a day (not all at once).

Today I was able to wear my rings! My mom gave me the family ring when she re-married and I was never able to wear it. Just for fun I tried it on today. IT FIT!!!! This is a huge NSV for me. Just thought I would share. I hope everyone is having a g

My hands and feet have been so ichy since I have had surgery. My hands especially I could scratch the skin of them they get so bad at times.

Has anyone hand this sort of reaction before? It may be completely unrelated but it is driving me in


Lisa C. posted a discussion topic 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Well it is a brand new day. I am post op 6 days. And I have to say I feel fantastic. I am still not getting all my protein or water in but I woke up this morning hungry, I ate, and I feel great. No pain, a little gas but nothing to complain about.


Lisa C. posted a discussion topic 4 months, 4 weeks ago

I feel less pain now that I am passing gas. I am able to get in all of my water and 1/2 of my protein (well it really has only been 2 days) and I am losing weight. Just ounces daily but I figure with all the stuff my body went through the last few da

Hi All.

One more sleep! Although I am not sure I am going to sleep at all. My surgery is at TWH tomorrow at 2:00 pm with Dr. Timothy Jackson.

I am so excited, and just as scared. But I am sure I will be fine. Please make room on the

Hi All.

Just an update. I had my pre-admission appointments today. Everything went well. My surgery is a week tomorrow. Any last minute tips?

Hi all.

I am on day 9 of 21 days of opti and I am constantly starving. I have been drinking 108oz of water a day, at first I was only having 3 opti because I couldn't stomach the thought of a fourth. But someone on here said split the 4th to

Hi Folks.

Can anyone tell me what the drawbacks will be if I only drink 3 opti a day not 4. I can get the three in but by the time the 3rd is done I am not able to get a fourth. I can't drink them cold they just won't go down. I drink them w

Is anyone out there in OH land having surgery June 20th?

If so do you want to be scared and excited together?

My surgery is the last one on the 20th, 2:00 pm.

Hi All,

Can we put unsweetened coco in opti, I find it way too sweet.


Lisa C. posted a discussion topic 5 months, 3 weeks ago

I start opti tomorrow!!!

For decades I hated the way I looked. But pretended to everyone I didn't care if I was big or what people say. I did and still do make jokes about myself, before others can. I am revealing now to people I think may have experienced the same feelings.

Hi All!

I am looking for some feedback. I am at my heaviest I have ever been and my small frame is not liking it at all. If standing for more than 2 minutes my lower back pains like crazy. I can walk may 40 steps and then again, the lower back
