    Have you tried a soft scrambled egg?

    I messed up royally

    So sorry you are going through this and I totally get it. I took a urine test and I think it would go back 2 weeks. You and I are pretty close in stats and I am telling you this is the best thing I have done for myself. I would not have been able to lose the weight I have lost so far to on my own . It came down to this for me, cigs or losing weight and that was a no brainer for me. You will feel so much better all the way around.

    Sleeve Surgery, Recovery, ... Stairs?

    I agree with Gretta about scheduling for after finals. You should be fine to be home with an upstairs bathroom barring their are no complications. Good luck !!

    Stopped acid reducer

    I take Dexilant for my GERD/Reflux I did try to get off of it at 6 months but it was a no go. I still have heartburn on top of it. Going to try again at my year mark because I have read that at 12 to 18 months our pouches will be fully matured as far as size.

    Congratulations Kio !!!
  6. I am sorry you are having troubles keeping food down. Is it anything you eat ? If so maybe a Dr. visit would be a good idea. Luckily for me I have never had a problem keeping food down.

    The struggle begins

    Those low carb wraps are good and have added protein which is a big plus !!

    The struggle begins

    For whatever reason I really cant eat bread anymore. I eat 2 bites of a sandwich and throw it out and eat the meat. I just don't have room for it, now crackers on the other hand , I don't keep in the house because I do like them.

    Thanks Trish I need to be more strict with carbs. I usually stay 50 to 70 grams, and I really need to stick them to 40 grams or less.

    The struggle begins

    I actually brought my non nicotine vape back out. I used it for about a month to quit the first time. It just sucks that I did this to myself . I didn't tell my family about the cigs because I really like being a non smoker and knew I would have to quit . I used the cigs to cope with things that were happening at that time since I couldn't turn to food.

    The struggle begins

    Stephtay, you know I don't know why I didn't think about that.. When I quit smoking 6 months before surgery I gained about 13 lbs. So yes this must be where this drive is coming from. Thank you, now I know what I am dealing with and can nip it in the bud.
  12. I am noticing that I want to eat for the past week and not because I am hungry. Was hoping that drive disappeared with my stomach, lol . So what do I do now? I have been fighting it and so far so good, but still it sucks when your weight loss has come to a stand still and you feel like your fighting a losing battle AGAIN!!! Not to mention I am back up 2 lbs . Anyone else going or has gone through this ? I know I am going to need some help and my next Dr. appointment isn't for a month. Secondly I relapsed with smoking few months ago and have managed to quit again. I am starting my 2nd week and it is hard. I am putting this out there for others in hopes you wont put yourself through this. Cigs are nasty and I am tired of being addicted to anything !!
  13. Glad they are trying to help you until you can get in there. What was your TSH ? Mine was a 1.1 when it was checked in 2015. Hope the medicine works. I just bought myself some over the counter thyroid supplement and will be trying it in the morning.
  14. I was eating around the same calories where you are in your journey. Was asking thinking maybe you were not getting enough calories for energy. Wonder what the rash is about? That process sounds like what I have to do here to see a specialist and it takes 1 to 3 months to get in here.
  15. Its called luna if I remember correctly and I also have them only on my thumbs. So you are going to have tests run for the thyroid? Can hardly wait to hear the results. You should start feeling better by June, maybe sooner. It took me awhile to get back to feeling normal. How many calories are you getting per day?
