  1. Thanks, sweetie!
  2. Congratulations!!!!
  3. Hi Elise, thanks! Actually I did the same as you in a very early post op stage. Although it did not affect my weight loss, as I was very careful, I truly regret it. It's like testing your pouch limits and this is no good. Can you have sugar? After 6 months I can't, I feel really sick when I have it, so I just cut it out completely. Bear in mind this is a lifestyle changing operation and always remember why you did it. This helped me a lot in the process. Good luck and all the best!
  4. Thank you all! However I'm struggling with snacking. I work in an office from 9 to 5 and feel this urge to have a cup of coffee and munch on something at midday and mid- afternoon. Then back home, I'm constanly munching on small things (nuts, a piece of low fat cheese etc), before and after dinner. And I feel this is ruining my diet plan. I also eat tortillas (although they only 64 calories, they have carbohydrates). I still wanna lose another 22 pounds and am terribly afraid to regain weight. Can someone relate to this?
  5. Well, the before picture is when I was at 281.5 pounds, I lost 48.5 pounds on my own then had surgery.
  6. It's been a long journey with its ups and dows, and my goal is to lose another 22 pounds. Hope I can get there!
  7. Hi, this may come a little late, but I had surgery (RNY) with Dr. Almantas Maleckas in September 2016 and everything went well. The team was amazing and they took good care of me. Have you had surgery yet?
  8. Hi everyone, just a quick update. It looks like I'm back on track, after a brief stall, managed to lose a few more pounds - basically went back to eat more proteins- and constipation problem is still there, I'm dealing with it with some of the suggestions posted here. Thanks for your input!
  9. Hi Tom, that's great! How much of them do eat a day? Thanks!
  10. Thanks, Cinwa! Haven't been here for a while! I managed to go down to 158 pounds, still some 37 pounds to go...
  11. Oh my! I thought I was the only one who never felt full! After the surgery, when I was already on purred foods, I've never had satiety. I was told by many people I could eat only a spoon or two, but actually I've finished all the 100ml I was having. I thought something was wrong with me or my surgery. Now, after 5 and a half months, I feel full when I eat certain things, but I'm careful enough to measure everything I eat, so I just don't overeat. I've read somwher a trick which is to drink as much water as you can half an hour before your meal, so this may help you feel full. I did it a few times and apparently it works.
  12. ¡¡¡¡Hola Isaare!!!!! I've tried everything, Fave de Fuca, Fuca Aloe, Fave de Fuca gummies, Miralax and nothing works. Only Emuliquen, which is very strong and I feel sick during the whole day. Yes, I'm drinking all the fluids. I will give Casen Lax a try, but I'm not very sure. ¡Muchas gracias y besos!
  13. Thanks! But won't the nuts affect the weight loss?
  14. Hi everyone! I'm now 5 and half months post -op. I have already lost 70 pounds. However, over the last month, I'm going through a terrible stall. If I manage to lose a few ounces, in a couple of days I get everything back - it's really frustating. It feels like going a step forward and two steps back. On the other hand, I have a horrible constipation as well. I've tried everything, I even asked my boss to bring me Miralax from the US (I live in Spain and we do not have it here), but nothing seems to work. Sometimes I just feel like giving it up, but what holds me back is the fact physically my body cannot accept the food I wish to eat and this is what stops me from giving it up. Also, the financial cost of the operation, as I had to get a loan to do it. Can someone relate to this? If so, what did you do? Sorry, if this has already been post, if you could refer me to any other thread on this forum, it would be great too! Thank you all for your input!
  15. Hi everyone, thanks a lot for the warm welcome!
