Hi everyone!

I haven't posted here in a long time. I have turned into a bit of a lurker in the past 6 months. But July 30th was my one year surgiversary from my VSG, so I feel like its a good time to brush off the old keyboard.

Here are

So I was thinking... lately I've been feeling really confident in how I look in my new clothes and new body, and I've taken a lot more pride in putting together my outfits every day. It's been a great, yet unexpected side effect of my weight loss. Vani

I know we talk a lot about our NSVs here, and it makes me wonder what other people's non-scale goals were when they started their WLS journey. Since the start of my journey, its been much simpler for me to focus on those than on hitting a number on the

Alright ya'll. I'm at my wits end. I can't get my digestive tract to cooperate with me. I've been taking probiotics and fiber and getting more than enough water... but I can't get things moving. Can you guys help? What's worked for you?

Just have to share about this awesome class I started this week. It's called "Pound", and it's a cardio class that uses drumsticks. It's extremely fun, not high impact, and can easily be modified for different fitness levels. I just love it! My hip fle

Hello friends! 

Today is my 2 month surgiversary! First of all I want to say a huge thank you to all of your for your immense support and the endless hours of smiles and commiseration you've provided me with. 

Here's ma stats, yo:

Hello fellow sleevees! 

Im just wondering when you guys were able to tolerate raw veggies, specifically salads, celery, carrots, broccoli, etc. 

Tomorrow is my 2 month surgiversary and I haven't had any discomfort from eating anything y

You know that friend who posts horrible articles on their Facebook wall 7 times a day about the inhumane treatment of animals and meanwhile you're sitting there chewing on a mouthful of hamburger? Ugh!

I just learned about chick "culling" from

Can anyone recommend where to look for some good compression clothing? More specifically, I'm looking for compression tank tops to work out in. My upper body holds most of my excess weight. As I've started to, um, deflate... things have gotten decidedl


jamrodriguez posted a discussion topic 3 years, 9 months ago

So I'm thinking wayyyy ahead here, because I'm only 6 weeks post op from my VSG. But skin removal plastics are going to be inevitable for me, since I started with a 50 BMI. I already have sagging skin and look a bit "deflated" in all my fatty areas. It

I had this realization that I'm cold all the time lately! I've always been one of those people that "ran hot". Like, I'm always hot. I always have the AC cranked up and a fan on and I'm still warm. Of course, I do live in AZ so there's that. But all my

Anyone else ever feel like you eat like a hobbit? I definitely have breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies, lunch, second lunch, tea, supper, etc. Also my toes are kind of hairy. Nothing to do with surgery, though. 


jamrodriguez posted a discussion topic 3 years, 9 months ago

Omg you guys. I had Chipotle. And it was glorious. 

Hubs and I were out running errands and he mentioned he would like to stop for some food. So it was either I get soup again somewhere like I do anytime we eat out, and then have to reheat my l

I'm one month post op today!!! Woooo! Im down a total of 63.5 lbs since my first consult on March 31st, and 25.5 since surgery! I was really hoping to pass the 300 mark yesterday because it was my birthday, but today I'm at 301.5. Im still happy about


jamrodriguez posted a discussion topic 3 years, 10 months ago

Oh my. I had a busy day today running around with my cray mother (who is starting to show the early signs of dimenta) and my sister. I had a small cup of soup at panera around 11:30, and then we were at the mall for almost 4 hours, after which I came h

I just want to share my joy with you guys. The hubs and I went to Costco tonight to pick up a couple things, and in the deli area there were 4 different cheese samplers! I got about 3 oz in free cheese and I was full! Free dinner for me! YEAH! One more

I've been having a lot of nausea over the past few days. It has been randomly timed.... not while I'm eating or immediately after eating, not close to the time when I should be eating again... just randomly in between. I can't pinpoint a cause. I'm a l

I'm very close to passing my first milestone: going from the 300's into the 200's! I have 8 lbs to go! 

How do you guys celebrate your weight loss milestones? 

I'm also thinking ahead to my 100 lb milestone... I was thinking I would go


jamrodriguez posted a discussion topic 3 years, 10 months ago

It can be weird when everyone around you starts telling you how much smaller you look, when you haven't really started to see it yourself. Sure, I have noticed my clothes fit better, and some are too big to wear, but as far as seeing it in the mirror,

Yesterday was my 2 week surgiversary and also my first day back at the gym. I started the day with a ton of energy so I decided to try for a run. Within 90 seconds my lungs were burning worse than I've ever felt them burn, even when i ran at my heavies

At what point in your post op diet phases fid you begin to eat nut butters? Nuts are like my #3 most craved item right now and I'm really hoping I can try peanut butter soon. I'm almost 2 weeks post op VSG and I'm about to go from full liquids yo puree

So... I'm now on my one week anniversary of my sleeve. I went back to work today and haven't had any pain or other problems. However, I suddenly noticed midday that I've drank about 32 Oz of liquids in the past 2.5 hours. I've been taking sips as I've


jamrodriguez posted a discussion topic 3 years, 10 months ago

I REALLY miss eating. I'm day 5 post-op from my sleeve and I'm still on clear liquids for 2 more days, then I'll be in full liquids for another week before I even get to consider touching pureed foods. Today was the first day I really started to get th
