  4. ok so I am feeling mostly great but I do notice that I still have trouble with being "regular" when I don't get in enough fluids. I also notice that I do get gastrointestinal pain about every 3 days when I do have a bowel movement and it is horrible. I gotta get the fluids under control. Also, I've had trouble with blood sugar dropping quickly several times and have been told by the doc to be sure to eat more frequently since it seems to happen mid-morning when I am active. Other than that, I feel great! I eat about 6oz per meal depending on what it is and try to get in 5 meals a day with protein first I lack on the greens . Still some things to work on but I no longer have any of the ilnesses and disorders I had pre-surgery YAY. I also am in a size 8 pant and medium top from a size 20 pant and 3x top. Huge boost to the confidence I would do this again in a hot second Thanks everyone for your support and I hope you all follow the rules and feel healthy.
  5. my surgeon is just fine with my using GasX and I still need it [/code]
  6. Awesome:) So hap hap happy for you!
  7. Hi Bren- I'm from Southern California. Welcome Hope you find this site as friendly and as useful as I have. Debi
  8. I love this site-
  9. I still can get in a mourning mood now and then but it is all in my head and it is not that I am really hungry I've found foods to replace my old favorites and things to do when I am in a "comfort food" kinda mood.
  10. My surgeon says "no alcohol ever" because it turns into sugar and that can cause problems.
  11. I had to lose prior to surgery too and I used the high protein low carb approach so I was never hungry. Head hunger yes, real hunger no. It worked for me )
  12. I picked 140 because it is a healthy weight for my body type, age, gender, etc. I am blown away by how much different I feel and look at my current 165 and would be quite happy to stay right here but I continue to follow the pouch rules and my body will stop when it is ready that way Congrats and many blessings to you. Debi
  13. I've had a will and advance directive for a long time, it is a great thing to do regardless of surgery coming up or not and if a surgery prompts you to get it done, well that's a good thing
