Hi all! Hope everyone had a healthy Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much! Quick question: I know I need to get the chewable versions of the multivitamins and supplements at first, but when do people start transitioning back to the regular pills that

Yay! Today, I met with my surgeon and scheduled my surgery date for 12/27/18! I'm hoping that my insurance company will get back to us quickly with the approval. I'm so excited to finally have something on the calendar!! Now, I can count down the d

Hi everyone! I've been searching for I don't know how long for a fillable/printable weight loss tracker graph that I can put on my wall so that I can keep track of my loss each month for a year. I want it to be in a graph form so I can put a dot on m

Hi ladies! Just curious if anyone has had any changes in their menstrual cycle post-op? I've heard that with extreme and fast weight-loss, it could have an impact on our cycles and even stop them or cause them to skip a month or so.

I’m meeting with my surgeon on November 14 to schedule my surgery date. I was wondering everyone’s thoughts on whether I should do it during the holidays or after Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thoughts?

I'm in the final stages of completing my pre-op requirements and am meeting with my surgeon on 11/14/18 to schedule the surgery. I'm curious what others have done in preparation for surgery BEFORE the 2 week pre-op diet? So far I've cut out caffeine
