My RNY was 12/22/16 and have been healthy and at goal weight without any issues. Blood tests are good. Iâ€™ve fallen on some very hard times and without an income the past few months. I can make $300 for 5 â€œdonationsâ€ of my blood plasma. I did one
My two year anniversary is coming up this December. My weight is good, hovering between 125 and 128. But, I have a weird issue. Long before surgery I thought I went through the change. Now, all of a sudden Iâ€™m getting hot flashes, especially at night
Iâ€™m not feeling well at all. I have appointment next Friday with my IM doc for a yearly physical. Liver enzymes still high. No pain in tummy, but BMs not a normal color. Much lighter no matter what I eat. Not normal in consistency. Plus, Iâ€™m tired
i had my fifteen month blood test completed last week. Iâ€™ll post results when available. I have been feeling tired of sorts and under a lot of work stress so I thought it would be a good idea to go back to taking Celebrate Vitamins. I like the chewab
Had some blood work done today and results unusual. Doc gone for the day. My thyroid test can back good. Waiting on Vit D.

My dad passed last Wednesday. We buried him Sunday. Needless to say Iâ€™m stressed out. We sat Shiva for two days. We are Reformed Jews, it was up to my mom. Usually itâ€™s seven days. Food everywhere and I could not eat anything. Last night we had C
Despite what others say about me. Meaning coworkers and family. They all say Iâ€™m too thin. My doctor says Iâ€™m good. No more diabetes, high blood pressure, and now after another sleep study; no more sleep apnea. Iâ€™ve reached my goals. I feel great
All my blood work came back fine except for my Copper level. I take a multi (Natures Way Alive! Women's Energy) with 2mg Copper included but it's still low. So now I'm taking 2mg Copper supplement with a meal.
Could this just be a fluke? I'm
Hi everyone! I'm finally at my goal! Hard work and determination. I'm going to London UK this Wednesday and had a few questions. I may have caught a bug, or something I ate didn't agree with me. The bacon, I don't know. Can I take maybe half of an Imo
i tried a new food today. Backstory: back in the day, like the 1980s, I lived in Cleveland Hts, OH, and there was this little soul food place called Mama's Boy. They had the best wings and fresh cut fries, in a box, called "Fun in a Box". Now, they hav
Yesterday, my BF and I went to Cheesecake Factory for a late lunch. I had shrimp spring rolls (2) and small salad. It really tasted awful to me, manager took it off my bill. Contained two skimpy slivers of shrimp, veggies in the roll, not fried. Peanut
Bought a brand new pair of GAP jeans, at Clothes Mentor (resale shop), tags still attached. Size 10! Whoopeeeee!
Also bra shopping at Victoria's Secret, never in my wildest dreams I though anything could fit me there. I was measured and fitted.
I really need clothes. Everything is hanging off of me and I need to wear a belt. I went to WalMart today to see what I could find. Looking for a pair of jean capris. Picked out a 15 and 12. Juniors usually run smaller. Tried the 12 first, way too big
Second day on liquids following laser gum surgery. Five months out of RNY on the 22nd of this month. No appetite, but I need to get in liquids. Had my share of protein shakes, tea, water, and ice coffee today, but the sugar free devils in the freezer
I'm repairing the damage from diabetes. There is damage. I can be saved. It will take time. Today I had laser gum surgery on my lower teeth. Went well. On 100mg doxy 2x a day for ten days. Also Tylenol with codeine PRN. However, I must be on liquids f
Has anyone taken probiotics? There are loads of choices. Some are time released and I don't know if that works with RNY. What should I be looking for in a probiotic? I am on a daily maintenance 50mg of doxy once a day not related to surgery. I know i
Great visit with Dr. Ben-Meir. I've lost 77% of my excess weight so far. All the office staff said I look great. All labs great. My blood sugar is great and I'm on zero diabetes meds. Next visit in three months and I'll have an A1C. Doctor said it s
I'm going on a six night holiday to London, UK this August. I'm following all the rules, three meals a day and the liquids taken one hour after a meal. I think I'm doing great. This is my yearly vacation.

Im religiously following my dietary plan. Walking and drinking as much as I can. More than 64oz water a day, way more. I haven't lost a nickel all week. I'm down about 36# so far and am very, very happy. I'm getting more than 60g of protein a day, i.e.
