  1. Hi there lovely, your profile pic is amazing. You are looking terrific. I haven't posted in ages but I have lost about 43 kgs. So feeling great as well.

    i hope everything else in your life is going as well as you look. K

  2. Hey there great to see you back again. I managed to get myself locked out couldn't remember my login ect ect. But back online again. Good to see you are still loosing.
  3. Hi all, I'm going really well. Not sure if my weight loss is 'normal' but I am happy, 23 kgs down. I'm not exercising like crazy, but I do take the dog for a walk most days. I just don't want to get to a point where I have to be at the gym every day to maintain my weight. So happy for the weight loss to maybe be a bit slower.
  4. Gosh you ladies are so well educated with your medical conditions. I know that my surgeon and immunologist had a plan in place for my pain relief which worked well but I couldn't tell you what it was. I also had this strange shivering/shaking episode which only involved my legs and teeth which they gave me something through my IV. It stopped and then I was on the the road to recovery, once again I don't know what it was. I congratulate you on being so well informed. K
  5. I also have fibromyalgia and polymyalgia rhuematica. I have had gastric bypass and contine to take, Lyrica, Cymbalta and Dothep. I was lucky my surgeon and immunologist work out of the same hospital and consulted with each other. Maybe that is something you can arrange. Hope this helps. K
  6. Hey there kiddo, I was happy to see your blog. A loss is a loss and you are doing fantastic. I did a quick calculation, because us Aussies work in kilos. You and I have lost exactly the same. I to suffer from fibromyalgia and also polymyalgia rhuematica. I know the meds and we deal with horrible side effects. I to know the difficulties of dragging my sorry butt out of bed. So chin up my girl you are doing fantastic. K
  7. Hi Tracey Great to hear from you, congrats on the beginning of you journey. I can't lie to you I can't stand the protein powders. I have tried many, so I work hard at getting my protein through foods. I haven't given up on finding a p powder that I like, I just can't buy to many at once (my hubby will go nuts ). Yep those headaches are yuk but will ease as the days go by. Try drinking as much water as you can, I know it isn't easy. I would put a splash of lime juice cordial in to help, I still do it now. I have no regrets with the surgery and haven't missed the old me at all. Good luck and please keep in touch. K
  8. Hi Aimee, sorry I'm a Queenslander but at least from Aus. Yes there is a few of us but not a lot seem to post. I actually check this site most days but had given up on hearing from anyone. I am about nine weeks out and have had really excellent progress. No regrets at all and have actually found Easter really easy, I thought I would have missed chocolate. Just really happy that I'm losing rather than gaining all the time. Good luck with your surgery, I'll keep an eye out for your posts now I know you are around. K
  9. Hiya, oh my goodness you have just described what happened to me yesterday in the early hours (our Good Friday), I though have now realised that I haven't been eating and drinking enough water. Of course this doesn't really help with your question but yes I had the same experience. I was very scared as well as I have never had anything similar. I do think that even though for you, you may have been eating enough you have been pretty busy and maybe need to slow down and take some me time. Good luck I hope you get a chance to have a break. K
  10. Wow, stunning. Well done.
  11. Hi again, yes I only eat very small amounts of steak and only really good cuts with a good sauce. I must admit I have been very lucky and can eat most foods. I have to make sure I chew, chew, chew and if I do that I don't seem to have an issue. My surgeon basically said I could try most things and see how I go.
  12. Good news first, I have finally had decrease in my weight after a two week hiatus. I knew that a halt to my weight loss was due but none the less it was frustrating. So yay now a loss of 17 kg in total. Tears is because I am daily feeling light headed and weak. Once again I know it will be because my fluid and protein intake is to low. I seem to be going through a phase of any food I previously ate I am no longer interested in. I am going to cook steak and corn on the bbq tonight, that along with some yummy gravy hopefully will be agreeable. Thanks all, hope you are doing well. K
  13. Thanks I'll have a look and see what I can buy. K
  14. Go to a blog called the world according to egg face. It has some great food ideas, I use it most days. I have chose to tell only my husband and two children. It's just easier that way, I don't have to spend time explaining my choices to everyone. Maybe later I may change my mind, but for now I'm happy it being just for me.
