  1. Congratulations! You look fantastic!
  2. AMAZING! I'm so very happy for you. I still have a long way to go, but we share the same surgeon, and I'm extremely happy with her program. Your success is very inspiring to me! Congratulations!!!!
  3. I'm also in the Portland area and have the same doctor as Keligirl12. I'm so pleased with the care I receive in her office. Portland is wonderful. There is so much to do here. Best wishes to you!
  4. I had my gallbladder out 6 years ago, while I was over 300 pounds. I had the surgery on a Monday, and returned to work the following Monday. I would say the pain was about the same as it was for my sleeve. Best wishes to you!
  5. Congratulations, you're doing awesome!
  6. That's super scary! I'm glad you listened to your body. Sending positive vibes your way!
  7. I had my sleeve surgery on 8/10/2015 by Dr. Emma Patterson at the Wilshire Surgery Center in Portland Oregon. I am so happy about my progress thus far. I started my journey at 318 on 6/22/2015. I weighed in at 293 on the day of surgery. This morning the scale reads 276. Wow, that’s 42 pounds in 80 days! Yay!!!

  9. Liquids only the day prior to surgery. The doctor wanted me to lose 20lbs prior to surgery to shrink my liver and make surgery safer. I did four 100 calorie shakes, and 1 Healthy Choice brand frozen meal for dinner. I managed to lose 25lbs in 6 weeks.
  10. Wow! You look great, and I'm sure you feel the same. Congratulations.
  11. Welcome to TT! There is so much wisdom on this site. I'm three weeks post op and doing really well. You will be on the losers bench before you know it.
  12. My surgeon advised to drink G2 low calories instead of just plain water because she's found that for some patients drinking plain water upsets their stomachs. Talk with your surgeon's office for a recommendation. Best of luck to you!
  13. Unjury unflavored doesn't seem to alter the flavor of things and it dissolves very easily. I've been able to dissolve an entire scoop in 4 ounces of chicken broth. It makes the broth look slightly cloudy, but all I taste is the broth. 23 grams of protein in just 4 ounces. It is a nice break from the sweet shakes. Cheers!
