  1. Thanks! Did not do much of a workout plan to be honest. Still continuing to lose. I was just at the minimum BMI to have surgery so I started out with no pre-op diet so all the weight I lost was after the surgery. Need to start working out to tone up a bit however I was quite happy with the lack of excess skin I have which is wonderful to not have to get plastic surgery. I did however lose a bit of hair (thinning which sucked as my hair was already thin) around 6 months but it stopped after about a month and now is growing again. I don't really have a diet plan but I always have a protein shake for breakfast and a hard boiled egg around 10/11. My lunches and dinners almost always include chicken which I love but I still eat a variety of foods just small portions. I am still not taking in a lot of calories as I get full pretty quickly which I am ok with Good luck on your weight loss!
  2. I use Kirkman Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D-3 in unflavored powder (1/4 tsp = 500 mg so I take it 3 times a day). Will have labs done 2/9 so will let you know I first bought the big calcium pill but am single and felt like I was choking every time I tried to take them - too big for me...so doctor recommended the powder and it works great for me and it cheap online - I got a 16 ounce container for $12.00 and it will last me months!
  3. I agree with Zen_Steph as I have had a similar experience these past several months - nothing comes up but it is like you are vomiting and it is usually eating to fast or to big of bites for me...
  4. Alaska! I moved to Kansas City, MO in 2014 after living in Alaska for 15 years - sure do miss it - however not the snow Valdez gets sooo much snow it was ridiculous. Where in Alaska do you live?

  6. I ate and drank the weekend before my surgery as well, and like Cheesehead, I was only required to do liquids the day before - so it really all depends on what your doctor has you on for your pre-op diet.
  7. I also have a similar experience to ZenSteph when I get full or eat too big of a bite - hiccups, sometimes burping and definite pressure in chest like something is stuck - you definitely will learn to not do this too many times as the chest pressure is very uncomfortable.
  8. I had gastric bypass and also experience hiccups but only when I am full and it isn't uncomfortable - good signal to stop eating
  9. I made it to onerderland this morning and feel AWESOME!!! Can't wait to see what the future holds for me
