hi all,

I haven’t been on the forums lately, but here’s a progress photo! I had RNY January 2018. 100lb difference! I feel so much better.


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 2 years, 8 months ago

Most of my family has gone from being super supportive, to bitter about my weight loss. I can no longer update my mom on my weight loss like I used to because she gets annoyed and says “it must be nice. Stop bragging.” And tries to force me to eat


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 2 years, 10 months ago

I’m so happy to be halfway to my goal!

My SW was 292lbs

I’m currently 211lbs

Surgey was January 2018

I am SO excited to be under 200!


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 2 years, 10 months ago

I am 6 months out and have lost 75lbs.

My mind keeps telling me I am not losing enough. It consumes me.

Am I losing enough? Is it just in my head? Did you struggle with this?


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 1 month ago

I’m almost 3 months out and lucky me, I got the flu! Any soup or food ideas...Or even drinks? Also any medication I could get over the counter? I plan on calling my doctor tomorrow. His office is closed right now.


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 1 month ago

Hi everyone,

I plan on calling my doctor today (it’s early in the morning), but I just spent 2 hours curled up in pain. I had extreme pain on my right side radiating into my back and chest...it was BAD. I was about to go to the ER when all of

I know this can be common, but ever since I hit 30lbs of weight loss, my period won’t stop. I am taking the pill but I have a feeling my pill is not fully being absorbed.

What method of birth control do you use?

I can’t get an IUD

Hi all,

I'm 4 weeks out to the day, and the past week I have been having big problems with nausea. I rather not take Gravol every single day...it makes me kind of sleepy. What helps you? I am sure there is already a thread for this, but I would

Hi all,

I have been stuck at between 270 and 267 for almost 2 weeks now!! Wtf? What’s going on? Is this normal after surgery? I am getting my protein shakes in and eating about 300 calories a day (that’s all I can eat right now).


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 3 months ago

What does a stricture feel like? I was eating lean ground beef and it got stuck before going into my pouch. It feels tight and I get sharp pains in my chest where it’s stuck. I’m seeing my weight loss doctor tomorrow...


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 3 months ago

Hi all,

I’m a little over 2 weeks out from RNY and I have noticed my poop is...well...pale. Like, SUPER pale. Is this normal?


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 3 months ago

I’ve had shingles once before, 5 years ago.

In the last few days I have developed shingles once again (yes, you can get it more than once) a week after surgery. A couple people have told me major surgery can reactivate it in your body.


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 3 months ago

I’m about to be 1 week post op and I’m doing AMAZING! I am already onto my puréed stage and doing fabulous. Have not experienced any nausea since surgery, and my pain is about 80% gone. I’m only taking pain medication at bed time. I am quite sur


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 3 months ago

Hi all,

My surgeon says I can start my purée stage on day 6. A lot of people are telling me that seems really soon....is it?

i have been doing well. Not feeling sick at all, just super tired.


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 3 months ago

Anyone here use PB2? 2 tablespoons is 1g sugar, 5g carbs, 1.5g fat, 2g fiber, And 45 calories. I was looking to only add HALF a serving to protein shakes in a couple weeks when I am more recovered.

Anyone use it, and what is your opinion on it


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 3 months ago

Hi all,

its the day after surgery and I’m having a very hard time peeing! My bladder is full but I can’t empty it...just an oz of pee every couple hours. They won’t discharge me until I empty my bladder. Again, my bladder is FULL and I’

Hi all,

It’s been 12 hours since RNY surgery and I’m feeling pretty good.

I ended up being 30 minutes late this morning because the roads were soooo bad in Ottawa. Thankfully my surgeon was very understandable and was even late her


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 4 months ago

The day has come. I’m having my surgery (RNY) tomorrow at 10:30am EST. My stomach is turning because I am full of anxiety. I know I will be fine, but the thought of being wheeled to the OR is freaking me out. I wish I could have my mom hold my hand w

Hi all :)

i have 2 boxes of vanilla Optifast for anyone who needs it. I am 30-40 minutes east of Ottawa (near the Calypso Waterpark in Limoges) I ended up not liking the vanilla and went back and got 2 chocolate from my clinic.

Does anyone have an Instagram that’s focused on their surgery and weight loss journey? Id love to follow some of you.

Mine is @losing_lina :)


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 4 months ago

Hi all!

This is for all my Canadians. I have trouble finding the Blender Bottle at Walmart, and when I do it’s hsually $10-$12 CAD

(I also live in a small town 1 hour outside the city so there’s not many stores I can go to)


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 4 months ago

I have my RNY surgery this Monday. It still has not kicked in that this is actually happening. I am prepared and educated on my surgery...but I just have this feeling like I’m going to wake up from this or that it isn’t going to actually happen. </


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 4 months ago

This post is kind of pointless, but I am so excited for surgery. I still can’t beleive it’s happening. I feel like I am dreaming!

As some of you saw on my last post, I wasnt losing weight with Optifast. I’m now on day 11 of Opti and have


Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 4 months ago

I’ve been on Opti for a week now and have only lost 2 pounds....Im scared I won’t lose much and the surgeon will deny me or something! I’ve been good the whole week. Only slipped once by having A small sip of hot chocolate.

Lina_Ann posted a discussion topic 3 years, 4 months ago

Hi all!

I’m officially 3 weeks away from RNY surgery and start my Opti tomorrow! I was wondering if using tea (cooled down) instead of of plain water in your Opti is okay? I emailed my nutritionist but it’s Sunday so she’s not in the offi
