  1. My surgeon's office gave me a recipe for "high protein hot chocolate". It's the Swiss Miss sugar free hot chocolate, 1% milk and powdered milk. I guess using powdered milk adds protein. It tastes really good and eases the chocolate cravings!! I can check at home for the recipe if anyone is interested.
  2. Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight, wish I may, wish I might, hit "onederland" by New Years Eve night!! :o)

      You can do it! Thinking of you, hon!

  3. I'm glad you're doing so well!! I had no complications and no pain at all. Used the pain pump for the first day and night in the hospital (more because I was afraid that I would start having pain, not because I was in pain). Took 1 dose of liquid Vicodin for the car ride home and never took anymore pain meds. Slept in my own bed the first night home, did lots and lots of walking from day one and never looked back. I feely truly blessed. Good luck to you!!
  4. Can now wear an XL shirt instead of a 3X. It's a great feeling!!

  5. Thinking of you and hoping everything is going good!! :o)

  6. Thinking of you and hoping your surgery went well yesterday.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery!! You'll do GREAT!! :o)

      Someone said when the scale isn't going down your probably going down on inches. I see that is the case here :D Congrats girl !!!

  13. I had GBS surgery on September 26, 2011. My highest weight before surgery was 255. During the 4 week liquid pre-op diet I lost 17 pounds. Since surgery 7 weeks ago, I have only lost 16 pounds. I am now stuck at 222 pounds. I walk at least 3 times a day at a pretty quick pace and have gone to the gym a few times as a guest (need to sign up for my own membership and go on a regular basis). I try to get all of my protien and water in every day but it doesn't always happen. I'm not sure what else I should be doing? I'm discouraged that I'm not losing weight. Two of my other friends that had GBS at the same time I did are also not losing weight. I read on this site every day about people dropping 20-25 pounds or more in the first few weeks/month. Any suggestions or advice would be welcome. Thank You!
  14. A friend who has had GBS gave me 2 Zone protein bars to try. They have 13 grams of sugar. Seems like a lot to me. Has anyone else tried the Zone bars?
