Hello everyone, so glad your on your way to a healthier life style... it will have it's up and downs but so worth the journey! I was sleeved back in July 2012. It has been the best thing I could have done for myself.

Small steps, but everyday!

Hi everybody! I'm just starting my journey here in Lexington, KY! My husband and I attended our seminar in June and we BOTH are having surgery about 2 weeks apart. We're on a strict high protein/low carb diet until surgery, hopefully in September! We're so excited! Glad to meet you all!

I had RnY in Mexico in 10/2008. I am 4'11" and weighed 220. I was on insulin and my blood sugars never got below 240. The doctors here kept telling me I needed to lose weight and recommended the gastric bypass but because I'm a teacher it was an exclusion. My friend leant me the money and I did it. Best decision ever! I got down to 118. In the last two years or so I've gotten lazy and when I joined spark people it was because of this very thing. I need people like you to read about to keep me on track. I've lost two pounds this month due to support and courage from the great people on this site. I'm off the couch and training for my first 5k. Right now my only concerns are how often food still gets stuck and comes back up and focusing on getting more protein and less carbs.

Hopefully tonight I can start my veggies-bit by bit. Getting my protein in now with a tiny bit of room to spare.

Greetings, MaryC;

Welcome to the board. I haven't gotten to the carb bit yet. Just had my surgery Dec 2012. I haven't reached my veggies yet- they tell me that once I can get my protein all in and still have some room left I can start on Veggies bit by little bit. It is getting close now-it shouldn't be too much longer before I start the veggies.

Hi All, I'm Mary... I've been on Sparkpeople quite a while, but not on the boards..... I had a 2 part DS in 2006, and 2007.... I lost about 270 pounds, and am maintaining. I have trouble reaching my protein goals almost daily lately, and thought getting involved with this community might help me stay on track. (I also still have trouble limiting my carbs... I do love carbs....LOL) I've gone back to tracking my foods daily, so I get a better handle on the protein and carb grams... Because of the DS, fat is my friend, so at least I can eat full fat foods, like cheese, butter, etc.... just hard to resist the toast or crcakers with them!
I'm from NJ... That's about it. Mary C

I had the RYN in Feb. I am doing great with my water and protein. I was pretty worn out for awhile after surgery but I finally have more energy and I'm walking 45-60 minutes a day. I need to get back into weight training as well!!!

Congratulations on your decision for the surgery. I had lap gastric bypass in Dec 2012 and I don't regret it. Things are moving along with the weight loss, etc. I am still getting used to my pouch.

I am also on the Gastric Bypass sparklers team here as well.

Plenty of info here and there.

I am new to this group, but not new to SparkPeople. After numerous failed attempts at losing weight (mostly keeping it off once I've lost it), I have decided to have VSG surgery, better known as the Sleeve. Each day, I go through a myriad of feelings about the surgery: hope, because I know that I will feel so much better once I've lost weight and can hopefully get off my medications; fear, because I've never had any kind of surgery and the thought of it pretty much terrifies me; excitement, because I will be able to shop in the regular size section of the store for the first time in YEARS and I will actually be able to walk more than a couple of blocks without thinking I'm going to pass out or even die emoticon .

I have started all of my pre-op testing that has to be done and my insurance also requires a 6-month diet...I started everything the beginning of January. Again, excited and scared!!

I have a good support system, but figured it didn't hurt to join this group and get a little more emoticon

I hope that everyone is doing well.

The psych doctor eval went well. He went through all that paperwork I handed in and I showed him a list of all the books that I had read on the subject and websites I frequent on it.
I had been researching the subject a while before I started the 6 month program. They require a 5 % weight loss and I have done that. Weighed in -in April at 281.0 and then in September at 266.0 at the facility. Then he asked me to name 3 large cities in the US. I named-NYC, Chicago and Jacksonville, FL-with Jacksonville being the largest city in area in the US.
Then he asked me to spell World backwards and I had no problem with it.

He told me that all went great and that I have my good evaluation.

Moving on with my first support group on Nov 5th at 11am to 12 noon -(I am off work that night), then my Pap Smear on Nov 14th, my Pulmonologist appt on Nov 20th-to see if I need a sleep study (I don't snore and I get plenty of restful sleep in the daytime) I work the night shift and therefore I sleep during the daytime. The first week of Dec I have my 2nd support group and then my Dietician and my PA.

Moving right along. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Glad everything went well! Keep focused and celebrate every victory! Sometimes it seems like I'm not really getting anywhere with my health goals, but then I think about where I started and realize I've made LOTS of progress.

Love, Light, & Happiness to all... Kelley

I am back - I had the colonoscopy this morning and got the results this morning-All is fine.
Results Normal. YAY!!!

Monday I weighed 272.2, then tuesday I weighed in at 269.2 and then this morning right before I left for the procedure I weighed 265.2. comes to a 7 pound weightloss due to the prep-but, I know I will gain it back. Just wanted to know how much I would lose due to the prep. Now I know. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Greetings everyone-It is Sept 3 and I hope that everyone is doing well.

I got my Mammogram results back-Normal. emoticon

Went for my Gastro consult and got all the instructions on my colonoscopy and prep. Prep on the 4th, procedure early on the 5th. I hope I get good results on both. emoticon

My Gastro doctor also scheduled an endoscopy for Jan 2nd-unless it needs to be upped to sooner.

Well, enough of my little updates-anyone with a surgery update? How are you doing? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have seen that book. It looks like it could be a good one. There definately is an emotional adjustment that goes along with having the surgery. Learning new ways to deal with stress and anxiety (other than eating!) has been a real challenge. Much more so than the change in my diet has. Thanks!

Love, Light, & Happiness to all... Kelley

I have found an interesting book to read that comes well recommended from alot of clinics-

"The Emotional First Aid Kit: A Practical Guide to Life After Bariatric Surgery, 2nd Edition" by Cynthia L Alexander, PsyD.

I saw it on Amazon-you can read a little of it when you click to see it. It is also available in ebook on Kindle there. I think I will get it. I liked what I got to read.

Anybody else read it yet? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Dr Garth Davis and his father Dr. Robert Davis have the Davis clinic which is part of the Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas. They do have an online site as well. Both are Bariatric Surgeons.

I added my new Chair boxing dvd exercises to my daily exercise routine and it has definitely added spice to the routine. Great DVD, great exercises. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I usually only rely on internet info but that sounds like an interesting read - will look at the library for it. Thanks

I have run across another good book that I am now reading called "The Expert's Guide to Weightloss Surgery" by Dr. Garth Davis (the medical director of the Davis clinic at the Methodist Hospital in Houston, TX and stars in TLC's Big Medicine. Baratric Weightloss Surgeon.)
Great reading for before and after surgery. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I know it can be challenging to find a good support system when you are going through the bariatric surgery experience. So many people donít understand that morbid obesity is a debilitating disease and at times it calls for surgical intervention. My own parents and sister did not support my decision. It is hard to hear people say negative things and feel that you are all aloneÖ BUT YOU ARE NOT!!! We are here to support you and together we will be successful and learn to be healthy. We will draw strength from one another. We will heal not only our body, but also our spirit. Please feel free to share both your struggles and your victories here. This is our safe place that we can share with one another and we will know 100% that we have the support of others who understand what we are going through.

Love, Light, & Happiness to all... Kelley
