  1. I do drink a few sips with meals. I eat mostly, fruit. I snack healthy things but do snack. Pretzels, fruit, string cheese. I am going to do the 5 day pouch reset. Can I use skim milk for Breakfast Essentials ? I cannot tolerate protein drinks. They are gag-producing to me!.
  2. I have seen so many "Pouch reset tests" on the internet, 5 - 6 , 7 day! Which is the best? I want to gain control and lose weight. Please help me.I am very upset,
  3. I don't know what to do! Since last January 2016, I have steadily gone up from 5 lb gain, then to 10 lb, now hover at 12-15 lb. I don't know what to do. It's true, I am not that active, but I am truly keeping my calories to 1500-1700 a day. I am so disheartened. Should I try the pouch reset? What does that do? Is my pouch no good anymore? I have hypoglycemia problems too. Can anyone help me, please.
  4. If I overeat, and I still can't judge that even over 2 yrs out! I get severe nausea I am sick of feeling sick when I eat. I have either nausea or hunger, and rarely do I feel just , well,just.
  5. I am about 2 1/2 yrs out for RNY. I used to have occasional incidences of hypoglycemia, but lately, I am having them almost every day. (For the past 8 months) They are debilitating . I first get a bit dizzy , then alot dizzy, then I start to shake, I have to eat sugary something right away, then reach for a long term carb. After about 30 minutes, of terrible dizziness and sweating, I am dead on the couch till the extreme fatigue runs it course. If I don't eat something ALL DAY LONG, it comes upon me. I have gained five pounds which I cannot seem to lose. Anybody else experience this? and if so, please share your tips to combating this. Thank you.
  6. Cinwa - I am intrigued with these Pearls? What are they supposed to do for the gas?
  7. I have coffee every day , one cup in the am, sometimes another if I go out to luch or dinner. No problems
  8. Terrible topic I know, but it is embarrassing and ever present almost all the time! I am constantly passing gas , and to be frank, it is beyond odorous. Sometimes, I am even appalled. What is wrong? Is it all the meds, the foods? Can I take Beeno all the time ? I am getting to the point where I don't like to go out to dinner or some other places where I will be in close contact with others. Can anyone shed light on this for me? Thank you all I am 14 months out from RNY, all bloodwork is normal
  9. I agree with everyone, and purplemist said it well, just don't talk about it with them, if they ask, answer quickly and move on.That is what I do with friends. With family, I talk about it enough, but don't dwell on it. esp when we see old photos even from a year ago.
  10. I'm still not taking the vitamins every day! I can't stand them, all the meds along with my regular ones for depression ,hypertension , etc . I had my bloodwork done a few months back for nutritonal study prior to cosmetic surgery and all tests were completely normal. I try now to take them daily but it's just t o damn much
  11. well, it's been 14 months since my RNY - I hover between 135-137. I have been this for almost 5 months now, nothing changes these pounds. I guess this is where my body will be. Yes, I reached my goal wt, but I wouldn't mind going to 130. So does your body just know when to stop? Can anyone shed light on this? Is this it for me?
  12. I finally had to have my mesh repaired for the cystocele and I had the rectocele repaired
