    Post Op Disney trip...

    Losing Motivation - sort of

    I find you often to be rude and abrupt GAviv....not even sure how you could have misinterpreted what Jolls said. Grayghost, if you are happy at your weight now such as not having to take meds etc, then just continue on living the healthy way you are, it isn't always about what the scales say but how you feel...and it seems like you are happy, and you have already had a massive loss...good work.

    100lbs down

    Congratulations on your loss, you look amazing.

    Why isn't the scale moving?

    I know the site you are talking about Paitynsmama....and it freaked me out too. I too am at 3 weeks and losing nothing, but I see that it is completely normal at this time for it to happen.

    Heartbreaking break up

    Thanks Arieskye....knowing I am not the only person suffering (lol) and that everyone has been through it in one way or another is a great incentive to carry on the healthy path. It is getting easier. And thanks for your advice

    Probably a Dumb Question

    Yeah I would say put a scale on the table and lay your skin on it, if you can.

    November Surgery

    Jenbeats. if you only need a little uppage in your protein, I buy the fatblaster shakes in the tubs (not sachets) and they taste yummy, especially the strawberry...like strawberry milk. I know you can get protein shakes with higher levels of protein in them but if you don't like them then you wont drink them....not sure if fatblaster is available where you are but have a look in your chemist.

    Cranky Pants have you tried putting a pillow between your legs when laying down?

    That the nerves in the pouch are still stunned or numb and won't feel fullness yet for a few more weeks?

    And I hope you feel better soon, I have heard this shall pass and will be a distant memory..

    November Surgery

    I have 2 scrambled egg white with either a tiny sprinkle of cheese or a bit of cottage cheese.....but only in the fry pan, microwave eggs are hard and chewy and hurt. Only two more days Lynne.

    As anyone changed their minds..

    I made the decision of what surgery I wanted based on the way I ate....I have always been a relatively small eater and but my foods were higher calories. So the sleeve was kind of pointless to me as I didn't need a restriction as such on the amount I ate, where the bypass absorbs lower calories...so that is how I made my decision. Hope you make the right choice for you, even if you delay your surgery until you have completely got your head around what you want to do, it is not a surgery to go in to without being 100% sure.

    November Surgery

    I was on purée diet from day 3.... I don't think I could have handled fluids. I still get quite hungry
