  4. I'm feeling the same way!!!!! How much have you lost!?? I'm down 21lbs in 22 days

  5. hey I had a gastric bypass revision from lapband also.I'm almost 7 months out and could not be happier...just wanted to say Hi!

  6. Oh ok. Can you please send it to me. I can give you my email. My drs office said I could have them now.. After last night I'm like no way Jose!!! I have no desire to drink anything but Im hungry. I think it's a mind game. Because I can go all day just having one ad jello.
  7. I can have sf jello and sf pudding, cream of wheat, and scrambled eggs. I tried mashed potatoes and because of the carbs I was told it caused a killer stomach ache for 2 1/2 hours. I was hunched over screaming crying. I couldn't walk. I'm so scared to eat anything. I can't even describe the pain. I've lost 21 lbs. however I'm starving I guess I had to just let it pass. But come on.. I never want to go through that again. I meet with my surgeon tomorrow. I'll ask him about it then. Has this happened to you? Any advice??
  8. SweetP.. Thank you. <3 I love how fast you all responded to my cry for help. I tried some mashed potatoes tonight and I thought I was going to die! That pain.. I can't even put into words. My support lady from my surgeons office said its from the carbs and it should pass in a couple hours. Oh boy Im scared to eat those again!!
  9. Wow.. It was such an emotional night for me. I woke up to all these amazing words of advice and you all make me feel so much better ! I tell ya we are all one big family! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Sipping all day long and a follow up appointment on wednesday. I'll keep you updated. Hugs!!
  10. Praying for you!!

  11. I had my surgery.. Now I need words of encouragement. I'm feeling a bit depressed. ..this to shall pass.
  12. Thank you. I had the band so I'm kind of familiar with the process. The beginning process is the hardest. I keep thinking that ill never be able to eat again.
  13. I had surgery in 11/1/11 and I just got out of the hospital this morning. I'm feeling depressed. I feel like maybe I jumped the gun on this surgery. I was so pumped before my big day and now I'm like what was I thinking?! I have read all kinds of blogs and success stories. I know I can do this!! Im just not feeling it.
  14. Wow!! My surgery is on Tuesday too!! I can't sleep so I thought I'd look on here for some support and everyone that responded to you really uplifted me! I already have the Lapband. I'm having a conversion surgery. I'm ready to start the life I deserve!! I have a 10 month old daughter and she deserves a healthy mommy!! We can do this!!!
  15. I have my surgery November 1st!! I'm on a high protein diet until then and I'm only allowed one 300 calorie meal a day along with 4-5 protein shakes a day. I'm almost there!! Good luck! You sound like things are on the right track!
