  1. Hey all, ive been away from thinner times for quite sometime now but im glad to be back online!! Im currently 22 weeks pregnant with my 1st baby and have recieved a letter from my hospital asking for me to attend an obstretic appointment. I had no idea what it was so i phoned up and was informed that because ive had a bypass i was classed as high risk, so my question is, does this sound normal to you or does it sound a tad ominous? Thank you Vicci
  2. hey guys, (sending this message to those who had dr ameet patel as their surgeon). how was your experience with him? how long was your pre-op diet and was it just liquids?

  3. Hi Vicci, how are you doing these days. I just got good news today my surgery date is 6th Oct. with Dr A Patel. Thought I'd share that with you.

  4. wow you look amazing - so different! Congratulations

  5. Hi Vicci, how are you I do hope that all is well and weight loss good. Im doing fine but i do have to admit that i am grazing alot and finding this hard to get under control. I have not gained any weight but i do feel that it is stopping me from losing any more. I am happy at my current weight but a small part of me would like to lose a little more. I have to admit I am feeling a little bit of a cheat as anyone else i talk to have lost loads more than me and are not grazing at all. Anyway would love to hear from you. Luv Noonie X

  6. Today's WOW Moment Was..."

    I asked a guy at work today to pass me a light and he said (in a nice way) ''your one of those women who can get anything they want because of the way you look!!'' I thought wow i used to get ignored when carrying suitcases upstairs whilst watching other thinner women having theirs carried up for them! It was a nice feeling to be thought of in that way for a second!!

  10. Happy to be here

    Hi GoolyMoogly, I think sugar is best avoided after gastric bypass as you may have dumping syndrome and it wont help you loose weight either! Dont get me wrong though im not an angel, I dont dump and so started eating the wrong things again and realised I was having issues with my food so at my last appointment with my surgeon I told him that I thought I was going to eventually regain all my weight as I could see my self eating badly again and he said ''have one (and only one) meal per month where you can have what you like, the rest of the time eat a sensible and balanced diet''. It seems to be keeping me from sliding back into my old ways so far. His point I think is to take control of our diets and then we'll rock our bypasses! Hope that helps

  13. The Journey So Far

  14. People are so superficial!

    Well it seems as if i'll just have to get used to it and learn to deal with this kind of attention as you all have. Its not that i see it as a slap in the face, its just i suppose the fact that i had my mind set on having a baby, my long term health and how i would see myself after my surgery and never really factored in to the equation the way others would see me. Thanks for all of the replies it really has given me food for thought! Vicci xxx
  15. Hi all, Ive really started to notice that im being treated better now im not so overweight! Men open and close doors for me, they escort me to my destinations, rather than pointing it out when i ask for directions and i even had a guy the other day hold onto my shopping trolley whilst i when back to my car to get my bags! I said i'd be about 5 mins as i parked my car at the other end of the car park and that he shouldn't bother but he waited the whole time! These things never happend to me before and i was lucky to get grunted at if i asked a question! Im sure this has been the case for many of us on here and although its nice to be treated better i feel a bit miffed as i havent changed only my weight has! Any body else feel the same or am i being over sensitive?? Vicci xxx
