Hey,

Haven't been around the forums much but back to ask a question.

back ground info:

I am about 1.5 years out. 100 pounds down (still a bit more to go but holding steady)

I work a very physically demanding job (I work

Can we talk boobs and bras (sorry guys)? I had been a 40K, yes that is a real size, today much less than that. Now that I am 10

So I am down almost 90 pounds and am fitting into clothes that are much smaller than the last time I saw this number. (I am right at 200 pounds and am wearing clothes that fit when I was last 180-170)

However the weight loss has slowed to a cr

I am so excited. 4.5 months in and down 75 pounds. Just over half way to my goal of losing 140 pounds. WHOOT! Now that I have stopped the brief experiment with carbs (to shut the NUT up) the weight has been going down again.

Just recently I

The people, not the delicious food items.

Last week I went to my centre and met with the NUT (and a different one). I said I didn't have as much energy as I felt I should (less than pre op).

She said it was because I was eating too lit

So I am at that stage where my hair is jumping ship, so to speak. I am not terribly freaked out, I figured this was coming. I cut my hair short so it would be less noticeable when it happened.

But, my question is, how long before it stops fal

I have been shopping at used clothing stores as I don't want to pay for new as I am shrinking. LOL I have been thinking of it as 'renting' the clothes. I buy them for cheap and then donate them back.

One pair of jeans I got used, that I loved

Nothing more than a small pity party. Having first bad 'time of the month' since surgery and really missing advil. Tylenol does squat (but I knew that before surgery, that acetaminophen does little for me)

Crampy and grumpy at work :(

I am going to wait till after my appointment to discuss my blood work. But the more I read and think about the patches I like the idea of slapping one (or two.. I was thinking iron and calcium?) and not having to worry about what I am eating the pills


Dundreggen posted a discussion topic 3 years ago

I have been taking more iron. A forum member in the Canadian area suggested I open my Feramax pills and dissolve the contents in tea or something warm. So I have been doing that.

I don't know if yesterday my stomach had had enough with all th

And it is amazing.

I invited a friend over for dinner yesterday. I had a really cheap cut of roast beef. I put in a baggie and cooked it for about 30 hours. It was super tender! Not very flavourable, but not bad.

I made really cheap


Dundreggen posted a discussion topic 3 years ago

Hello all,

So my iron is on the low side. I had my first set of bloodwork done but my appointment with TWH isn't until the 23rd

My Ferritin is 28 ug/L. I have just started taking feramax. For those of you who take tha

Had my first blood work done since surgery 3 months ago. Things looking pretty good. I was coming off a wicked cold so the lymphocytes were a bit raised. Not sure why my Vit a is low or my B12 is high though. And YAY my vit D is in the normal range.

Hello all,

I have been greatly intrigued by these and am looking at this one:

So I feel a bit sad with all the weight people post how much they have lost in the beginning (here and on the local Bariatric FB groups).  I am 3 months out and have lost 'only' 56 pounds.  My surgery roomate has lost over 100!  However she started ove


Dundreggen posted a discussion topic 3 years, 2 months ago

One of the greatest mysteries of weight loss for me is the phenomenon when the scale isn't moving much but you are getting smaller. Where is it going?  What is my body doing?  Why is this a thing?

I am not unhappy lol, just vaguely puzzled by t


Dundreggen posted a discussion topic 3 years, 2 months ago

So I am 8 weeks out.  Running is going well (3.6k yesterday) eating is pretty good and thankfully I have gotten my thirst back!  -getting that much water in was almost torture when you are NOT thirsty. Learning the joys of yoga to keep limber.


Dundreggen posted a discussion topic 3 years, 2 months ago

Did anyone do anything for reaching milestones in their weight loss journey?  Ie like something when you have lost 1/2 your excess weight, or reached onederland etc..


Dundreggen posted a discussion topic 3 years, 2 months ago

So I have gone back to exercising with the nurse practitioner's blessing.  I am ok to start running and do targeted exercises (so no core work, and no free weights that use stabilizing core muscles).  Ran 3K in 5 and 1s last night.  Well more like slow

Period question..

So before surgery I was like clockwork since I had my child 16ish years ago.  Came on time, left after 3-4 days.  Easy to plan around.

I have had two periods since surgery.  Both have been days late and go on FOREVER.


Dundreggen posted a discussion topic 3 years, 3 months ago

I think in part because I was so active pre surgery I got the go head to go back under strict rules to do nothing with abs/core (don't want a hernia)  

Today was my 3rd day back and it was good.  I have been running a bit on the treadmill (got

So I am 5ish weeks out.  I have slowly been adding soft foods.  So far haven't had the foamys.  Things are going quite well.  Twice now (not close together) however I have thrown up about an hour after eating.  The food went down, felt ok.  Then I got

I finally feel like I got enough protein and liquid in today.  Its only 4:30 and I have gotten almost 100gm of Protein and just over a liter of water. Woooo.

Much better than yesterday where I ate like nothing and didn't get a liter in all day.
