What do you guys eat when you are craving something sweet? Or do you not eat anything sweet? Don’t crave them? I’m just curious.

Recently I have been craving sweets like crazy. But it’s that time of month so that might be why. I boug

I know everyone is different, but what has been your experience?

I’m just curious because I am currently a size 26/28 and decided to try on an old pair of pants I had in my closet that were a size 24. Well that wasn’t happening because t

Am I the only one who can’t drink coffee anymore? Before surgery I loved coffee....I take that back, I was obsessed with it! I always started my day with a cup or two and on the weekends I’d find myself sometimes drinking it all day long. I prac

So my surgeon never discussed with me my goal weight. But from researching online, with my height, my ideal weight (or at least the weight that would give me a normal BMI) would be 145.6 pounds and below. Also, using the formula of current weight min

So I did a really dumb thing yesterday. I decided to try out this new smoothie place after work seeing as they had some healthy options on their menu. So I ordered off of their light and fit menu. I even asked the lady at the drive thru window if th

It’s been a real struggle this past month or so with the constant nausea/vomiting and then the pain. Was starting to think I’d never feel better and wondered if I had made the right decision by having the surgery. I came very close to losing my j

So I always had GERD really bad before surgery. I’d wake up in the middle of the night choking on stomach acid. It was horrible. This was one of my big reasons for having the rny over the sleeve.

Now it’s like it’s coming back full for

Had my one month post op yesterday. Since I didn’t have any other symptoms other than nausea I was told it probably wasn’t a stricture or anything like that and no other tests were needed. I was asked if I had any pain, but I told them no because


MadisonRose posted a discussion topic 2 months, 1 week ago

So I’m not sure what could be causing this? Had my surgery on 1/23/19 and the first couple days after surgery I felt sick which I figured was from the anesthesia. That went away. For the next two weeks I felt fine and had an appetite. Actually, I

I’m currently 10 days out from surgery and started my vitamins the very next day after I went home from the hospital. I’m taking the bariatric fusion chews. 4 per day everyday. I was told by my dietitian that these vitamins had everything I need

Cant believe it’s finally here. I check into the hospital at 8 in the morning for my RNY surgery and I’m super nervous!!

Don’t know why I’m nervous as I’ve had surgery before, but this is different. I guess I’m most nervous about

Do they make flavored water that is non carbonated and contain no sugars or artificial sweeteners? I’ve been looking, but can’t believe how hard this is to find.

I’m not a huge fan of artificial sweeteners. The taste is ok, but they ten

It’s really starting to sink in now that I’m actually having surgery next Wednesday. I almost still can’t believe it!

My pre-op went well aside from something I was told today by the PA. She told me that if I have a lot of scar tissue fr

So I got the call today from my surgeons office that I have been approved for surgery. I will have the RNY surgery on the 23rd of this month. I’m excited and nervous all at once. Feels like I’ve been waiting so long for this from having insurance

So I’m prepping for RNY surgery....getting all of the requirements out of the way etc. And I have my psych evaluation on Dec 10th. I was told it was a 4 hour appointment. I’m sitting here wondering what on earth will be going on during those 4 h

So I met with the surgeon today for my consultation. It was the the same surgeon I met with before a couple years ago when my insurance did not cover the surgery. So at that time I didn’t proceed any further.

Today I had my consultation,

So I recently got a new job with health insurance that covers bariatric surgery. I’ve been considering this for a long time now and finally in a position where I can get things started.

Even though I’ve been considering this f

I’m just posting because I could use some prayers and positive thoughts.

Many of you know my story about how my health insurance does not cover weight loss surgery and how badly I want it....how badly I need it!

For the past couple


MadisonRose posted a discussion topic 1 year, 1 month ago

I’m at that point now. I’m just tired of trying and don’t think I’ll ever get there. I met with a weight loss surgeon last year who told me I’d be a better candidate for gastric bypass rather than the sleeve because with the sleeve I wouldn

It's been awhile since I posted. As I've posted before, my insurance does not cover any kind of weight loss surgery so I've been trying to find other ways to get it.

I applied for medicaid, but I did not qualify. I also recently m

So I finally have a consult appointment with a surgeon on June 8th so that I can discuss getting referred for a grant since my health insurance does not cover any form of WLS. I will have to pay for the consult out of pocket, but they said they won't


MadisonRose posted a discussion topic 1 year, 11 months ago

I've shared my story on here before about not having insurance coverage for WLS, but so desperately wanting it.

I'm still searching for other jobs that might offer insurance coverage for the surgery....but in the meantime I've contacted a loc

I don't know how much longer I can go on like this with no hope or nothing to to look forward to. I'd love more than anything to have weight loss surgery, but am unable to right now because of no insurance coverage and money.
