So today I officially made it into the two-hundreds.  I'm now down 61 lbs since surgery.  It's been slower than I expected; but the addition of my new and fantastic counselor has really helped in the last few weeks.  I'm finally getting this figured ou

Ok, so yes a scale victory this week also of 2 lbs.  HOWEVER, I have been eating the right stuff and exercising every day for 1 week today!  That is a huge victory for me!  Did some soul searching, established myself with a new counselor, and am finall

So it's been awhile, and I need to check back in with my OH family!  I'm down 50 lbs from my highest, but that is over 6 months.  I definitely haven't been using my tool as well as I should and have been burning the candle at both ends with school, tea

Not sure if it's my first or not, but we went to the pumpkin patch over the weekend and my wife took pictures of my son and I. I got so many positive comments from people on that post telling me how much skinnier I look and how I look great, that I ac

Thanks for everyone's responses to my original message. I feel like I am still having a problem with not getting restriction. I'm sticking to low carb and protein shakes (with a few minor slip-ups along the way, hey, I'm still learning/figuring this

So today I am officially 22 days post op and feeling pretty well.  I'm down 22 lbs also so I'll take that as my magic number.  I'm still figuring out food things but mostly doing ok with it.  Happy to say (knock on wood) that I haven't thrown up or had

Today I am officially 1 week post RNY.  The pain has been manageable and has not been a hindrance at all.  I'm having a little trouble getting all of my protein in but am pretty close.  I am getting all my fluids down ok.  Oddly enough, I have this wei

So, I picked up a book at the goodwill last weekend (everything was 50% off and I love a good book, for only $1 especially).  This book is called "FOOD: The Good Girl's Drug", it's about binge eating and what they term in the book "disrupted emotional

So, I'm getting very excited to be moving forward along with some of you others.  I don't have my surgery date but have started my pre-op diet.  Weird question, many members I see have a weight loss pre-op diet that seems to be mostly liquid.  The pre-

I had my test review appointment with the surgeon yesterday and I really liked him.  We went over everything in detail and I signed consent for surgery.  They've submitted to insurance for pre-authorization and looks like surgery will hopefully be earl

Ok, test review appointment with the surgeon is this week coming up on 6/25/15.  I'm nervous and excited and all the other myriad emotions are swinging me along in their emotional wake.

Hi everyone,

I'm about 2 1/2 months from having insurance approval to get my surgery date (for RNY) and am wondering what anyone did for pre-surgical weight loss (aside from the pre-op shrink your liver diet).  I've started trying to eat more l
