  1. Ken !!!! How you been? Things okay here, Im sorta in the same boat as you. Stall and drop stall and drop. But Im am down 25lbs since surgery!! Yay me!!! And I have lost two pants sizes. Its not easy to not get discouraged when you hit that stall but I keep at it and eventually the scale does move again. Glad to hear from you, I was wondering what happened you.
  2. So I think my dreadful three week stall is finally over. The scale moved down a few pounds this week. So glad, I was really starting to get discouraged.

      Great news!

  3. So today I am 2 weeks post op I am 14 lbs lighter and altogether I have lost 47 lbs !!!! Today was my first day back to work and alot of people noticed that I have lost weight. I am offically in Onederland at 199 but it seems this is where I have been stuck all week. But at least I have made it to Onederland ...... yay me!!!!

  4. So I am five days out and feeling much much better. Its kinda weird because my Dr. told me to stay on liquids until my post op appt on Monday. I have stuck to that but have added a little bit of stuff with more substance. The Dr. told to try to get in between 300-500 calories a day but I am able to get almost up to 800 in. Is something wrong? Am I doing something wrong?

      Wow I barely get 800 calories at 6 months post. Your hair wont fall out!

      And I can get in about 12ozs in an hour. Is that bad? I dont feel bad and when I feel full I stop but that fullness seems to pass within a very short time(an hour)not three hours like my surgeon said.

      Cyndi - follow your programme. You start pushing it now and you're going to continue doing it.

  5. I am three days post-op and am really having a hard time getting all my fluids in not to mention I havent been able to get any protien in. First day home anything I put in came back up. Yesterday I was able to get 20oz of water with crystal light , 2oz of chicken broth and about 2oz of juice. Any suggestions? I dont want to get dehyrated but I dont want to over do it either.
  6. Hey everyone. Two days post op and feel really bad I cant seem to keep anything down not even sips of water. And I am running a slight temp. What do I do???

      Give your surgeon a call. Mention the fever, too. Hope you feel better!

      Yes call your dr for fever..... try warm tea, or warm water. I thought I wanted cold but my pouch wanted warm. Once I figured that out I was able to drink. I drink cold now but I didnt for about 8 months.

  7. Well surgery went well. Not much pain at all. Now if I can just go home where I can rest without being woke up everyone

      I LOOOOVED the leg massagers! Glad to hear things went well and you are already up posting. Now that those massagers are off, get to walking...LOL.

  8. Sit down with her and tell her. She is your sister afterall and it may be better for the both of you to have someone to go through this with. Although our family ( I hope) are supportive they really have no idea what you go through unless they have been through it themselves. Tell her I am sure she will be happy to have someone to share this experience with.
  9. Tomorrow is my Day!!!! Be at the hospital at 5:45 am , nervous and excited at the same time!!!!
