  1. @cinwa @Jen581791 thanks guys!! I thought I was the only one hahaha. i don't miss it at all, I'm happy drinking plain water, but the other day I went to visit some family and the lemonade looked so good in the pitcher and I just took a sip and threw the rest away
  2. Hello!!! Lately I've been realizing that I don't like many foods/drinks I liked before, specially those sweetened with Splenda. If I take a sip of lemonade (like the crystal light kind) I start gagging because of the sweetener. Am I the only one here?
  3. Don't do it! You've been working so hard to lose that weight! Don't throw all that hard work away! Stay focused, remember the end goal!
  4. I was really thinking about it, but my doctor suggested an alternative therapy to help with the hernia (using ice bags and some electrotherapy on my lower back, then a massage with an ultrasound machine and finally a hot light) it's been really helpful but not a deffinite cure (yet)
  5. Hey everyone! Quick update! I got out of the stall the day after my 1 month post-op appointment just after my surgeon told me he was expecting me to lose more pounds. Also, last week I got into an argument with my mother and I'm happy to report that coping with food was not my first option!! I never EVER thought that would be possible! My back is doing so much better! My doctor is amazed by the results!!
  6. The nausea is gone, but sometimes I feel too full and thats the moment I desperately need to burp, walking has been helpful. Sometimes I feel like I want to throw up but I try to walk it of because I don't need all those acids going up.
  7. @BurgundyBoy @Jen581791 thank you! I really appreciate your words! I'm dying to get some more excercise, unfortunately I have a hernia on my lower back, which is killing me and I'm not able to walk long distances, (I'm on a treatment to avoid back surgery) I think what kills me is that I wish I could do more but I am phisically unable to work out. The first month my surgeon and my dietician allowed me to eat a few carbs (specially during the pureed and mashed foods phase) but I ate more than I should have, but now I'm determined to follow my new diet and not cheat at all, I'm finally allowed to use protein shakes which I know will help a lot.
  8. Although I just got out of my one month check up and I've lost 18lbs, but my doctor told me he was expecting around 25... I feel disappointed,
  9. Today is my first monthiversary! Best decision I've ever taken!!!
  10. Hi! I'm 2 weeks post op today. I got my period 2 days after the surgery and lasted 4 days (as usual). My question is, after WLS does period patterns change? Do you become more regular? Does it last longer? thanks!
  11. Hello everyone!!! Before my surgery everytime I felt nausea or felt the need to burp but just couldn't I would sip some club soda; but now being that we can't/shouldn't drink bubbly drinks, what do you do when you feel this way? Any advice will be highly appreciated.
  12. Thank you, Gretta <3
  13. Today is PostOp day 5 and today all the regrets punched me at once, I'm hating the liquid diet, I hate that at family dinner everyone is eating and I just have a cup of broth (by now I hate it), I hate feeling miserable because I can't sleep (I sleep in freefall position), I know in the long run this regrets will mean nothing, but for now they're everything.
  14. Hahaha I got some cheap ones from Costco so I wouldn't feel bad for not using them long enough. Until now my biggest struggle has been with my family because they're avoiding to eat and drink sodas infront of me. Honestly, I'm not craving what they have, and I tell them they shouldn't stop eating because of me, that I don't want any special treatment, they just don't get it.
  15. Yeah! That's what my doctor told me, when he gave me the date I was ok with having 5 little scars, then he told me I was a candidate for single through bb, and yesterdar before surgery he told me that if needed he would make one or two visible insitions but when I woke up he told me there was no need! Now I'm walking around the whole floor and thanks Goodness I brought nice PJs hahahah
