  5. It will be interesting to compare experiences I think given we are both revisions, and both starting with similarly low BMIs. I just had a call from a dietician which I wasn't expecting. Told me nothing I didn't already know about the pre-op diet, but was nice to finally get some contact about it. She's going to post me more information. Also to finally be given a contact number should I have any questions regarding the pre-op diet. Up until the call I was feeling like I was being left entirely on my own. I'm not expecting any great weightloss prior to my surgery though because I've pretty much been on the same diet for the past six months as my 4 week pre-op diet is. Good to hear your already able to get out and about, albeit without as much energy as you might like. Was your bypass done laprascopically or open. I'm assuming laproscopic if you're already driving.
  6. Glad things are falling into place for you, although I know from my own experience that while you are waiting time seems to crawl, better if your busy though. It will be better if you can have a doctor you have confidence in. I drove myself to Marion today and got my haircut. Feels much better now. Was going to do some shopping, but wasn't really up to that. My taste is coming, had my first decent cup of tea. Everything seems to be getting back to normal now. I have only lost 3kg since surgery, but I guess that is enough. It will be interesting to see if your experience is similar to mine, I hear than can be a lot of differences. Mine was pretty positive apart from some breathing difficulties, which I have been having trouble with for last six months, nothing do with surgery. Those pain killers they give you in hospital are different, I was hallucinating first couple days, don't think I could handle being a drug addict, I like to be in control, but did it's job.
  7. Are you measuring and tracking exactly how much you're eating? What is your daily caloric intake and protein, carb and fat numbers? Even if you're eating the right foods, if your calories aren't at a deficit, you're not going to lose weight. Also, if you're eating enough to gain muscle, then in all likelihood, you aren't going to be losing a significant amount of weight (your body composition may be changing, but it won't be reflected on the scale). That's why bodybuilders go through "bulking" cycles (where they eat more and focus on gaining muscle) and "cutting" cycles (where they really reduce their food intake while focusing on fat loss). You have to decide what your priority is. If you're focused on gaining muscle & strength, then keep doing what you're doing. But if you want to really lose fat, you may need to reduce your caloric intake and possibly adjust what you're doing in the gym to support that goal.
  8. Loved your post and please continue to keep us up-to-date on your progress! I have my surgery next week so hopefully soon I will be joining you on the losing side!
  9. That's kind of how my work is. I've had people whom I never talk to approach me wondering what I'm doing. People are apparently asking about me in meetings in which I'm not present. Some people think I'm sick because of all of the doctor's appointments. I'm not used to the attention.
  10. I didn't tell anyone at work because my workplace is a huge hive of gossips. People I don't even know would be expressing their opinions to me. Nope. Quiet it is. I didn't even go on "vacation". I timed it so I only needed to be out a day here and there. I haven't yet shown much of a weight loss but I've been eating differently for months now so those who see me regularly shouldn't be too surprised. Then we'll see about the rest...
  11. I keep track of everything through the MyFitnessPal app. I was shocked at how many carbohydrates that I eat even though I don't eat processed food. It helps me to stay mindful of what I'm putting in my body. I don't know if you have tried that but it has helped me be accountable in the food area
  12. Walk, Dwayne, walk. It will help with gas pain immensely!!
  13. Thank you!
  14. Thanks!!!
  15. Yes, unfortunately, I'm aware of this fact, lol. I averaged about 3 pounds per week after my initial 12 pound weight loss the last time I started out, and I know the majority of weight loss the first week is water. I'm a little nervous to see how it's going to play out this time since I no longer have my thyroid, and a lot of thyca patients don't do well trying to lose weight. I think I'll do well though. How can I not on 800 calories and 50g carbs a day, right?
  16. Don't compare yourself to others:). I have really bad ankles and other than getting 10,000 steps a day at work, I don't work out. I eat pretty much the same things every day. I try not to put temptation in the house. That said; I love to cook and bake. If I bake it goes home with our adult kids or to work. Above all, I get my protein in, always have. Until I get 4 oz of meat in I don't eat anything else. Some meals I don't get 4 oz in. And I've always gotten my water in. Early post op I set an alarm and drank a 2 oz shot glass every 15 minutes. In 8 hours I had 64 oz in. Water and protein are your friends; carbs are not... It will take a while to figure out what works for you.
  17. Welcome to the losers bench. We are here to support you. Your life as a thin, healthy and active person awaits you if you can stick to the diet.
  18. I kept it completely quiet at work. People say funny things sometimes, but mostly let it go. There is only one lady who regularly asks me if I'm feeling alright when she happens to see the size of my meal. I told them I was on a medically supervised diet. I think 6 people are now drinking protein shakes for breakfast
  19. Great job. You made it. Welcome to the losers bench. The next couple of weeks may be tough, but hang in there. Life as a thin, healthy and active person awaits you.
  20. Made it through to the losers bench. Have a hard time sipping and my gas pain is pretty intense. Hoping tomorrow will be a better day.

  23. Thank you so much for your advise Carina. Cheesehead, you seem to be doing really well. Do you have any advice? How often do you work out? I am wondering if 5 days a week should be enough or if I should go to the gym every day?
  24. I'm 3 years out and I still can't eat meat or dairy products! I've switched to a mainly vegan diet and get my protein from shakes or beans. Everyones stomach is different! I thought i'd be back to eating normally by the 1st year. Sometimes I see people who had the same surgery just gorging down cheeseburgers and french fries like nothing! I hope your tummy feels better soon xoxo
  25. My mom is quite the conversationalist as well. I think she is as supportive as she is capable of, but sometimes I really want to punch her in the face. She knows I had surgery, but continues to offer me cookies and candy. She is obese and has myriad co-morbidities because of it, but only wants to take another pill (as does most of America, I might add.) She is always commenting on other people's weight and says stuff like "Look! Did you see her? She's got such a huge behind!" I recall how much her mother, my Nana, shamed her and I about our weight and I realize I have to be the one to break the shame cycle. Whoopie! She is 86, so the hope of having her change significantly has long since dissipated. As I re-read the last paragraph, I realize I am not the poster child for the compassion team either. I am trying to appreciate her for what she does bring to the table: a sharp wit, a sense of style, refreshing bluntness (when not directed at me), and a love of my children. Realizing that food is her only comfort in a pretty uncomfortable life is sad more than anything. She has been through a lot with me and my brothers, not to mention my father (that is a whole other post). AHH! I just thought of something! There are no real boundaries in our family, so I continually have to reinforce what I will and will not do with my mother and my brothers. Maybe this is the issue with your mom. I have gone so far as to say "If you continue to talk to me about, ask me about, or other wise engage in (said topic) I will have to leave or hang up." The tricky part is following through without anger. and then doing it like 20 more times until it sticks. I can't control her (Lords knows I've tried), but I can decide how and when I will interact with her. It's hard not to take things personally. I brought this up the other day while apologizing for a backhanded remark and she told me she heard herself saying things to me and thought to herself. "Why would I say that to her?" I guess if I'm keeping it about me, we can still have a breakthrough. Ha!
  26. I told people I'm on a low carb, high protein doctor supervised diet. I was judged for being overweight all my life and I didn't want to be judged to my decision to have wls. 4 years out and I work at a different place where no one knew me as overweight. I'm normal:) Tell them you decided on "vacation" that you wanted to get in shape and be fit for your next vacation.. I actually decided to look into gastric bypass while being a beached whale on vacation. We went back to the same place 17 months later and I was 120 pounds lighter:) not a great picture
  27. I kept my surgery really private when I was actively trying to lose weight. When people would ask about my weight loss, I'd just tell them that I don't drink anything but water and I cut a lot of stuff out of my diet. Now that I'm at goal, I've been a little more open about having surgery, primarily with people who have their own significant weight issues. I just can't look at someone who is struggling to lose weight and is trying to figure how I succeeeded where they keep failing and omit the fact that I used an amazing tool to drop all this weight. That just seems mean and WLS has been such a blessing for me, I would be the first to encourage someone if they wanted to do it. But for "normal" people who ask, I don't mention the surgery, I just talk about how I massively overhauled my diet and reduced my portion sizes.
  28. Keep yourself focused on the reasons you are doing this. Not everyone gets a do over. I had so many health issues I was sure I was going to die on the table. I nearly got up and left the OR, if I had, I wouldn't be where I am today. The unknown is scared but you can do it. Once in the hospital let them know your worries they may be able to relax you. Good luck! Looking forward to seeing you on the losers bench:)
