I'm ok but life has been pretty tough. I'm going thru another depressive episode. It's not helping that my dearest friend has 4 months to live, we are having some developmental challenges with my 6yr old son and my PTSD is being triggered by something

I posted last week that I had been sick with lots of gastrointestinal issues. I am finally on the mend after 3 weeks of hell. I did not have any virus or CDIF. I was tested and my WBCs were normal as well. So it was most likely gastritis which I get fr

I have had diarrhea for 11 days now. Everything I eat goes through me. On several of these days I have not been able to do anything to keep warm, like under 4 blankets shivering cold. The other night I drank a protein shake and ended up dry heaving all

I see a lot of people that exercise a lot and some that say exercise was not necessary for their weight loss or possibly even detrimental. I had a 3 week stall recently. I had a bad cold with a cough that wouldn't quit. I wasn't exercising. The past 3

A bit of a vent here.. On this website, I only see people trying their hardest to do the right thing. A few days ago, I joined a bariatric support group on FB because I like reading questions and answers. Any info I can get on other's experiences is gr

My husband and son have a stomach bug. I forgot to eat/drink all day yesterday. I realized at about 6pm. I sat down and ate 2oz of cheese and 1oz of turkey then drank 12oz of electrolyte water. I went to bed at 9:30 and woke up at 11 to my son throwing

Hi all. I am at the halfway mark of my weight loss. 100lbs gone, 100 more to go. I have been obese my whole life, since I was 5. At first after surgery, I did truly lack energy. I started to feel less tired at around 6 weeks. I am walking at lunch 5 da

I am 9 weeks out. The past 2 days I have given into my anxiety/depressed mood and eaten crackers, not just a few either. I feel terrible and I am terrified if I am doing this at 9 weeks what I will be doing at 20, 40 and 60 weeks out. Today I have deci

minaque2 posted a discussion topic 9 months, 2 weeks ago

So I'm 6 weeks out. I have lost 32lbs since surgery. I got on the scale yesterday, I weigh once a week, and I gained a pound. How is that possible? I walk 5 nights a week. I get my water and protein in and I haven't eaten more than 400 calories a day.

Last night I ate about 6 small bites of a pork chop. I thought I was eating slow enough, I definitely chewed a TON. Well, it was so stuck, I was in terrible pain/discomfort for 2-3 hours. I tried to take a sip of water but immediately had to throw up b

I have been having terrible craving for bread since 2 days out of surgery. Yesterday while cutting the crusts off my son's sandwich, I ate a tiny bite. I don't want to do shit like that. I know its a slippery slope. I'm surprised this early on the crav

On Saturday, I went to the Big E, a huge fair here in Massachusetts, with my 5yr old and husband. I drank 25oz of water in the car on the way there. I ate a string cheese. We got there and it was over 80 degrees. I drank 40 more ounces of water while t
