Hello and Good Morning OH'ers

I've been watching some YouTube videos starring MO and SMO people recently and have seen this trend. People will comment with things like "Just put down the fork", "Eat a piece of lettuce every once and a while!",

Good Morning everyone and happy Friday! I hope everyone has an enjoyable and relaxing weekend ahead of them.

I'm looking for some opinions on being told that basically I need to stop/slow down with the weight loss from my mom. She has been my b

Hello everybody!

I've never been able to get a clear answer on this one. Some people swear that you can facilitate additional weight loss by adding in some extra calories. The explanation I usually hear behind this claim is that eating as low c

I had an amazing nsv today! So for the past couple of years that I've been in college, I've always had to sit in the disabled seating area in the back of the room during lecture because I couldn't pull the desk down over my stomach. Wouldn't you know i

Okay, so off the bat I've heard from so many people that once you get near goal you get a sickly melted candle look, almost too skinny people say. Most say your weight then redistributes and that look goes away. So I'd love to know how long that genera

At a week shy of 3 months, I have finally reached onederland (199.2)! This'll be the first time in 5 years that I've been under 200, and a whole 6 weeks ahead of schedule :D :D I was hoping to hit onederland by my birthday (Sept. 7th), but now I think

Hello and I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

I've been pretty quiet lately because I've been going through some hard times, but I do need some advice.

So, I guess first off it's important to note that my husband of 6 years and th

Hello all!

I have a history of setting unrealistic goals for myself, so I wanted to get some outside perspective on my first big post op goal. I would like to get to Onederland by my birthday of Sept. 7th. I'll list my stats below, but please

Hello all! It's been a minute since I last posted, but I thought I would update everyone and get some advice. So I am one month out today and down a total of 28.8 pounds, 23.8 after surgery (5 pre-op).

Quick NSV, I started out wearing size 22 p

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to give a little update, sense I was kind of out of it with my last post. I'm not sure if I experienced any more or less pain than the average RNYer, but things have improved so much! My pain is well under control

Surgery was yesterday, everything went well, just got home today.

So how long can I expect this intense incision pain?

Thanks all

Hello all!

So tomorrow is the big day, surgery is scheduled for 8am! I'm super excited and not really nervous, but I can't figure out what to do with myself today. I want to prepare everything for post-op so I'm going to clean, but any other su

Hey guys,

I don't know how many people experienced these feelings pre-op, but I always feel...just bad. I feel sick at my stomach all the time (probably from always eating crap food and way too much of it to boot), so tired, just like I always

Hello all!

Good news, I heard back from my insurance company today and they've approved me for surgery!

Now that it's real, I'm starting to think ahead, but I'm really unsure about vitamins. I feel like I haven't really been prepared by

Hey All!

I am struggling right now figuring out how to lose the weight I need before my surgery. It seems like I do great through most of the day then lose it at dinner and over eat and eat the wrong things and ruin my day. I was wondering if a

Hello everyone!

I have my appointment with the nutritionist in a week where I am sure she will put me on my official pre-op diet (I am on what appears to be an unofficial diet now). I was wondering what others experiences were with their pre-op
