Today - in Canada we are celebrating Canada Day - 150! Last year on this day I was so close to getting my RNY which was scheduled on 9 September 2016. I remember sitting in my living room and thinking, how wonderful would it be if I was 100lbs lighte

This is very interesting - for me anyways! I got my RNY on 9 September 2016 and have lost 106 lbs. I am at goal weight (135 lbs.) I have lost weight every week and have been compliant 99.9% of the time. However, yesterday I decided - I feel like ha

I had my RNY last September so about 10 months. I have lost 105 lbs and am 135 and very happy with that number. What concerned me today, I went out for lunch (have not gone to restaurants very often since my RNY) and ordered a salad with shrimp. My

I started this journey at 235.6 and today I'm 135 - my goal weight. I feel great at this number. I had my RNY on 9 September 2016. I still can't believe that I lost 100 lbs.

Now the fun begins - actually this is very scary. During the last

It was 7 months recently that I had my RnY. I feel fabulous and my total so far is 95 lbs (144 lbs yesterday)!!! How cool is that. Getting this surgery has been q

I had my RNY on 9 September 2016 and all is fine. Yep - I thought I was a pro at this eating thing!!!! OMG tonight I ate my usual 2.5oz salmon but just too quickly - now I feel like I'm dying. So all to say - remember t

I had my RNY on 9 September 2016 and have lost 76 lbs and have another 20 to reach my goal.  So I'm over the moon meaning I'm so happy with my results.  I feel normal for the first time in like 30 years.  I have told only

I had my 3 month appointment and all is good except the Nut mentioned that my carb level are totally inadequate.  She told me that my levels were around 40 and that I should be eating around 120/day.  I'm a little freaked

I am about 5 weeks post-op and I have a question in regard to protein.  I am still very early in my process and I was wondering if it is a big deal if I don't quite get 60mg of protein/day?  It is nearly impossible right


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 7 years, 8 months ago

I'm 3 week post op.  Today is the day to transition to soft foods.  On my plan it suggested 1 egg (scramble) and 2 tbsp. of soft fruit.  I started with the egg and let me tell you - OMG I wanted to die.  I ate it slowly a

Soon I will be doing my transition to soft foods (2 days).  So far all is good.  Weight is coming off   One que

I am post op almost 2 weeks (RnY).  I am doing the transition to puree and I must say that I am extremely compliant to my plan.

I noticed one thing when I eat, I follow recomm

I am starting my puree stage (had RnY on September 9).  No complications.  I was wondering if 1/4 cup of leek soup, and 1 wedge of laugh cow cheese is too much?  I feel fine.  Don't feel stuffed, sick or anything else.  W

I feel great however last night, I was a bit dizzy.  I am doing approximately 60 grams of protein and for water about 1000 ml.  I vitamins are good as well.  Can someone get dizzy by being too full?  I left a call with my

I had my RnY this morning and I must say that I feel fantastic so far.  In hope my healing continues to be positive.  Thanks to all that have supported me.  I love you all.

I am getting my WLS shortly and I had plenty of time to think about changes in the future.  Throughout the years I had lost/gained weight more times than I can count.  I will be getting RnY and I really hope that by stick


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 7 years, 10 months ago

I will be getting WLS soon.  How often do you recommend to weight ourselves during the "losing phase"?


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 7 years, 10 months ago

I have my pre-op apt in Ottawa on August 15.  Can anyone tell me what will be happening at this appointment.  I'm getting my RnY on September.  I can't wait but getting nervous as well!


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 7 years, 10 months ago

I am just curious - I was told by my clinic that we are not allowed straws when drinking liquids.  Does anyone knows if this is for life or just a few months?


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 7 years, 11 months ago

I am scheduled for RnY on September 9.  I have to admit I'm somewhat scared of my upcoming surgery.  It seems lately all I'm reading here are about patients that are having issues.  They feel weak, pouch problems etc.  Ar

I am getting my WLS on 9 September and starting Otifast on 19 August.  My question is - in the meantime would it make sense to start this process like focusing on getting proper nutrition, ie. proteins etc.  and losing a


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 7 years, 11 months ago

I was wondering if anyone has or is using Optifast after Post Op instead of the Premier Shakes?


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 7 years, 12 months ago

I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for food high in protein that doesn't need refrigeration.  I will be travelling 4 months post op.  Thanks.


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 7 years, 12 months ago

I am so thrilled - met with the Surgeon yesterday and got a call back today, how crazy is that!!! I was able to pick my date so the big day is 9 September.  Feeling a little scarred at the same time.


Lovely_Caprice posted a discussion topic 8 years ago

Well I had my 2nd last appointment today, pre-op class 2.  Meeting the surgeon on June 24th will be my last appointment before my WLS.  OMG this is starting to feel so real.  It is very scary but I'm looking forward to getting this done and moving on w
