Went to my nephews graduation Saturday. Decided to do some closet shopping to see if there was anything that I could maybe get into now. three weeks ago I could not get this shirt buttoned and the pants, well they are jeans that are not stretchy and on

I started working out 4 days a week with a trainer doing cross training. I am not seeing the scale move at all. Starting to get frustrated but I am feeling stronger than I was 3 weeks ago. How long does it take to start seeing the pounds come off. I am

You know it's progress when your clothes are too big and you can go in your daughter's room and get a shirt that fits!

TGIF!

OMG I got hit with my first bought of foamies and throwing up. After 2 months didn't think I was going to have to deal with this since I have not had any issues.

 Not sure what caused it. Ate the same thing I did the other day and no issues. It

Howdy fellow Sleevers!

Well here I am 2 months and 8 days post op. Things are going great! Have had a few minor issues not tolerating certain foods but other than that feeling the best that I have in a long time. It's amazing how much differenc

Finally got to do a side by side comparison pic. I do not have a lot of before pics but did take this one on the left when I started my 2 week liquids. The right side is today (sorry for the blur)

Haven't posted in a while because my last post turned into a three ring circus. Thought I would try again because I have made some many friends on here, not going to let that keep me away.

Went today for my one month follow up. Wow!! has it alr

Well, that damn stall got me. I've been working my butt off with the exercise. Faithfully riding my bike every night. Very proud that I can now do 30 min and not be out of breath and dying. Well my legs feel like limp noodles when I go to walk afterwar

Never thought I would be excited to eat mushy food. LOL  Starting week 3. What was your favorite food at this point? I am excited to try the baked ricotta!! I ate an over easy egg this morning and it was like eating a steak compared to all liquids.

1 week post op went well. 21 lbs gone this week (which just shocks me) and 41 total since I started the 2 week liver diet. Incisions are healing good. Can start walking more too.

I want to thank everyone on OH for sharing your stories, tips and

Tonight I had to go with my daughter to her softball team party it was bring a finger food. How the crap do you figure out what to take knowing you are not going to get to eat ANYTHING!?  I decided not to cook anything which is what I would have done b

I really can't believe it's been almost a week already. I hadn't weighed because most of the posts I had read said people  had gained weight due to fluids and swelling. Knew my clothes were fitting different but I did not expect to see what I did when

Each day gets a little better. Still no real pain.(still no pain meds) Stomach feels like I've done a bunch of sit ups but not as sore today. I am managing to get all of the clear liquids down. There is the issue of every sip I take, it makes me belch.


Tink3125 posted a discussion topic 3 years, 11 months ago

Well first night was not bad at all. I actually got some sleep which is amazing since I still haven't had pain meds. Before discharge had to do a swallow test to make sure there were no leaks. All was good. My BP decided to go wonkers today. I've never

Happy new birthday to me!  Surgery done successfully this morning.  Dr said everything went great. Had issues with throwing up which I knew was going to happen. Took me a while to wake up completely.  Have already got an ounce of water down and walked

I can't believe this got here so fast. Two week pre op diet went by really fast. Today is all clear liquid diet. I think it has finally hit me that this is really going to happen. A little nervous.

Any last minute pointers?

I can't believe it is almost here! Surgeon did let me eat Thanksgiving yesterday. I was very good and ate very small. Back to the protein shakes today and tomorrow. Sunday will be all clear liquids. Surgery is at 7:30 am and have to be at the hospital
