I recently found out I'm anemic. Hemoglobin 8.2, MCV 71, MCH 19.8. I also found out I need to have surgery for something unrelated to my bariatric surgery. My primary care doctor has me taking iron, but I'm wondering if I should ask for transfusions

I'm a bit over 4 months post op from VSG.  I've been walking several days a week, and adding 20 minutes on the elliptical as time allows.

 

I used to do an hour on the elipitcal, but I'm pretty tiered now after 20 minutes.  I've been th

I just finished watching Blue Bloods while on my elliptical.  Looking for something new to watch while I'm exercising, makes the time go by fast and makes it a treat for me to exercise as well. 

 

Any recommendations?

I met my first goal today, next goal is 280.  And I think next goal after that is 268 (which is half of the weight I want to loose).

 

I'm so excited :)

I'm interested in hearing from the vets out there...how tall are you, and around what weight did you shrink out of plus sized clothes?

So I've lost 49 pounds in total since the start of this journey.  My pants are all really baggy.  I fit in a smaller size, but I don't like how they look - I think they make me look fatter and I'd rather just stick with my old big pants until I'm even

I'm 4 weeks post op, and suddenly the chewable vitamins taste horrible and I can hardly get them down.  Thoughts?  Advice?  I remember someone posting about a vitamin patch maybe I should try that.  or try some other chewables?

Its a co workers birthday.  There were a plate of 10 fancy amazing cupcakes outside my office this morning on a file cabinet.  I left for lunch and went on a walk hoping they'd all be gone when I got back.

 

There are 2 left.

I went back to work half time today - I was so grumpy.  And I got irritated with my husband when he came home for lunch!  What is wrong with me?

Well I'd just like to officially say I'm hungry.  Lol.   I've been doing great up until today.   I'm sure I'll survive, but some chicken would be fabulous right about now.  I hear it gets better after 3 or 4 days?  Maybe I'll feel better tomorrow.  I'm

Hopefully this all move

I've seen several posts where people said their feet change sizes after surgery.  It has me dreaming of a shoe size where I can go into a store and buy shoes.  I don't know if it is in the cards for me,  I wore a size 11 in high school and at a normal

My insurance requires 6 months of continuous physician supervised weight loss prior to surgery approval. I did a physician supervised program for six months, but it has taken so long to get everything going, I guess I need to do it again. Is 6 months
