  1. Awesome!
  2. Congratulations! You look awesome!
  3. I was same way with vitamins. Not sure if this is appropriate but I found that the Bariatric Advantage chewables were tolerable and not bad tasting.
  4. I can't upload a photo but holy cow! Major Delish! I put a bit of salt on zoodles in colander for about 10 minutes and then sautéed with olive oil and garlic. I tossed with 2 tblsp of part skim ricotta. I was careful about sautéed time so it didn't get mushy. Literally was maybe 5 minutes. Thank you so much guys... this is definitely a low cal protein filling meal!
  5. Pesto zoodles sound yummy! My zuchinni is coming out of my ears and my basil right behind it...lol! I just bought the zoodles since I'm waiting on the spiralizer. Thanks everyone for your help. I let you know how it turns out!!!!
  6. Garlic and Olive Oil sound amazing. How long do you usually cook them for? Mushy Zoodles don't sound to appealing to me either...lol
  7. I absolutely love Zuchinni and bought pre-cut Zoodles yesterday( waiting for my spiralizer to come). The problem is I have no idea what to do with them. The possibilities seem endless though. Does anyone have some good suggestions?
  8. Beautiful pictures! Thanks so much for sharing and 90 pounds is so inspirational!
  9. Congratulations! You look so happy!
  10. I'm a newbie too but I agree with the previous posts and the 3 meals. I'm only allowed 3 meals a day. No snacks. Just the fluids in between(crystal lite occasionally a diet cranberry or low sodium fat free chicken broth/sugar free popsicles or jello). My "meals" by my own choice are still boring(I had 1/4c of southwest egg beaters for breakfast...lunch was 1 cup of progresso steak and Vege soup and dinner will probably be my old stand by of 1/4 c part skim ricotta mixed with steamed spinach and 2 tblsp of crushed tomatoes). I do use a protein powder mixed in to get my protein levels up. I also try to do at least 2-3 miles a day at a walk/jog. I'm 4 weeks out of a gastric bypass revision and down 27 pounds as of today. My starting weight was 248. I haven't hit a stall but I'm sure there's one on the horizon. Hope my information helps you a bit too.
  11. Good luck with everything! I'm new to the boards but I've been in your shoes. My bypass was over 10 years ago. I had two beautiful kids but after the second one the weight just kept creeping back. So... I just went through a revision 3 1/2 weeks ago. It's like starting over again with the liquids...purée etc but I feel great. It's scary and overwhelming at times but your health and quality of life is so worth it. You're gonna do great!!!!!
  12. I'm new here too and am 3 weeks out of a revision but I second the suggestion of Premier Shakes. They're so good and much better than the other products out there. Good luck with everything and welcome from another newbie!
  13. Thanks for the support. The way I look at it now is that if I hadn't of had the initial surgery I wouldn't have been able to have my 2 little angels. It was rough watching that scale creep up to over 200 pounds and not being able to stop it. Big decision to undergo revision but worth it. 20 pounds down in 3 weeks and going strong!
  14. Hi Everyone! I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself! I had RNY in 2006. Then had 2 children(a beautiful girl in 2008 and boy in 2010). Both were difficult pregnancies and both were C-Sections. After my son I was never able to lose the "baby weight" and it just kept creeping back up. I finally had enough and went back to surgeon(my original surgeon relocated to NJ so I needed to seek out another). I went through all testing and found out that the stoma had become quite large. So...here I am 3 weeks out of an endostitch revision. I must admit first week was uncomfortable but I feel human again and am back on the treadmill! Looking forward to meeting you guys and getting some great advice and support!
