I understand Carol . Try to have a good time ....

I don't know what to do ,I am having hasn't burn and I am against medication because they are so bad for you. I topped taking the one my surgeon prescribed as they told me to take it only for a month. Has anybody experienced this ? What do you do about it?
Before surgery. I had a occasional heart burn

I bought this protein shake and it's horrible . It's called vega and it's 23$ for 10 portion of 15g of protein. I had it with water need to find another way to use it.

Beside that I am out of the 240s today at 239lbs :) can't wait yo be out of the 230's to . Last time I was in the 220's was 5 years a go.

I can feel the anxiety building this morning, which is manifesting itself in IBS, as I get ready to spend a few days with my parents. Don't get the wrong impression....they are very loving, supportive people, but they are still the only people in this world who can make this 48 year old woman feel like a 12 year old little girl......

Congrats Lolita
You'll see, this is one of the best decision you could make . I had my surgery on Mai 29th . And I am so happy. I lost weight that normally takes me 4-5months of starvation to lose.
It's normal to be nervous as I was, time will fly by.
I hope that everything goes well with your journey

I have an appointment in 2 weeks to meet with the nutritionist and then my pre-op education class on the 30.

Hi, I'm new here. I am on Day 2 of my PreOP Plan. My surgery is scheduled for July 9. Working on the chewing and eating slower.

So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose. Your insecurities they try to alter you.
But you know you're made for more- so don't be afraid to move.
Your faith is all it takes and you can walk on the water to.

Hello everyone
I had my dr appointment today.they were very happy with my wait loss.
Didn't care much for my stall.
I have lost another 2 lbs finally . Meaning that in the past 17 days I have lost 5 lbs and the 15lbs after the surgery was all in the first 10 days. So a total of 32 lbs loss pre-op yay

After my nut saw my food journal: I'm having 25-30g of protein a day and an average of 1.2 l of water. So she suggested some high protein cheeses and some drinks so that I can have my 60g of protein a day.
They said I should not have fruits yet. I have to be able to have 2 portion of vegetable a day and after that I can add 1 portion of fruit. I should start having whole grains and gradually move from very cooked veggies to raw....
And for helping me being regular I should add 2 teaspoon of crushed not powder flaxseed ( add it to Greek yogourt).
That's it for now

Kaza - Congratulations on your success thus far! Sounds like you've hit a stall....it's normal and OH SO FRUSTRATING! Have you taken measurements? You might be a place where the scale doesn't move but the tape measure does.

Hang in there! The weight will continue to come off if you stick to your prescribed plan.

Lori -- WOW! Your life sounds so exciting! I'm a little envious -- but very excited for you to have "couples time" and your trip south of the border!! I pray you get into the drs. office before your big trip.

I'm feeling much better after having, yet another, tooth pulled (I suffer from Bruxism). I didn't gain any weight, kept my proteins up, and carbs low over the 5 days of recovery even though I was on a "soft" diet. 2 months of maintaining goal weight and seeing some tone in new muscles from light weights, riding my stationary bike, and 30 minute cardio walk. Still extremely constipated.....a laxative may be on the menu for tonight!!

much love to everyone!! (((hugs)))

Well I was supposed to go get some new labs done to see if we can figure out why I'm feeling so tired all of a sudden. The appt was set but the bariatric nurse who handles all of this stuff called to reschedule because she's sick and there is no one else in the office that can do it.

LOL... now I can't do it until week after next because we're leaving Sunday for some much needed couples time. We're going to rejuvinate in the Hot Springsof Arkansas and spoiling ourselves in the Old Arlington Hotel. Maybe some spa time, several massages, thermal baths, clean mountain air, and some good pampering is just what I need. According to my labs in May, all of my vitamin levels, iron, etc... were completely normal.

I've got to get some energy. We leave in July for our condo in the Dominican Republic and I do not want to be dragging around the whole time nor do I want to be that far away if something is wrong!!

You might also want to try a vitamin B12 for your energy. When I started taking it my energy level improved big time. I take an iron pill at night.

The vitamins I take are Bariatric Fusion. I can only get them online or at the hospital pharmacy. They are more expensive than the OTC vitamins but they were recommended by my surgeon to make sure I'm getting everything I need. I figure the money I'm saving on food with no longer eating as much, makes up for the cost of the vitamins.

Kaza -- congrats on getting back to work! I know you don't feel like eating, but are you getting enough protein? are you mixing protein powders in with your juices? Right now it's all about getting your protein in any way you can -- even if you are drinking it. Don't worry you will get into a routine pretty soon where you will want to sit down and eat a meal, but for now, protein, protein, protein!

As for the vitamins, I have several friends that take Flinstone's chewables twice a day. I take a Centrum chewable once a day ($10 for 100 pills at Walmart). Most surgeons are more concerned with you getting all the supplements in rather than what specific brand you are taking. The only recommendation my surgeon had was to make sure I was taking a multi-vitamin that had 100% daily iron.

no i haven't tried children's vitamins , i guess you have to take more than one?
i have low energy for now but i think its because i dont eat enough.
the thing i find hard its the timing for drinking and eating . it makes me eat less because i want to drink when im thirsty or to take some meds...then i have to wait....then i dont eat....
anyway this a new way of life and i have to get use to it

Right after my surgery I didn't feel like eating much either. I made sure I drank plenty of fluids and I ate what I could. The pain and your dizziness I think I would mention to your doctor, I didn't have any of this myself.My chewable vitamin is a kids one that my doctor recommended and it taste great, have you tried a children's kind?

DOLPHINLADY05: Are you taking a vitamin B12? I noticed after I started taking one twice a day that my energy picked up. I haven't had any depression as of yet but have had the worn out tired all the time feelings. How long has it been since you had your thyroid checked? Your thyroid could be the culprit also. lots of hugs

VGRS -- Wow! I will lift you up in prayer as you take care of your folks.....God Bless You for stepping in to help them!!

Lori -- You might just have a bug that's got you down. Is your BP ok? Mine was running way low (80 over 50) and I was feeling really tired -- surgeon suggested having a cup of green tea (just a little caffeine) in the afternoons and it has helped a lot.

(((hugs))) to you both!

Question: Thursday was my 6 month surgiversary and for the last week or so, out of the blue, I have started to feel completely exhausted & sometimes even a little depressed. Does this sound even remotely familiar to anyone? I mean, seriously, unless I need my labs checked again, I have nothing to be depressed about and no reason to feel as tired as I do. Any ideas, suggestions!?!

Just checking in as I have not been here for several weeks. My Mom has had two mini strokes so I have been busy taking her and my Dad to their doctor appointments...not to mention my own...and working as well. I continue to lose weight, even with all this stress, so I'm glad it continues to work. Will try to check in later to catch up with every one.

I had a tooth pulled this morning, so I'm starting the 5 Day Pouch Test. Liquids for the next two days (I couldn't eat anything anyway, so the timing is perfect.)

I don't necessarily want to lose any more pounds, but I would like to break the carb cravings and get the "feeling of fullness" back in my head and pouch.

You are welcome Zoolie
We all react differently .
I stayed one night at the hospital . The next day was very hard for me I was in such a pain , mostly because of the gas they put in you for the surgery. You got to be patient .DO LOTS of walking even at the hospital, walking slowly it's your friend.
Those hard day will pass. I'm 10 days post-op today and I finally felt a little more normal and less exhausted .
When is your surgery date?

Thanks Kaza! I'm glad to know somebody a little ahead of me on the surgery so you can give me "heads up" on how you are doing. It's so hard to know what to expect.

Zoolie that's great the date will come in no time. I'm allready 10 days post op. It's crazy.

I'm Still very tired and low energy witch I was told it's normal. It's very boring staying home. Planning to go back to work on the 16 of June. You won't be able to eat much in the beginning but then you will start to increase slowly but don't force yourself ....

I'm not using my cpap machine because It feels me up with air and I sleep even less.
I have had a nap few time this week.and slept through the night yesterday because I wasn't lying on my back anymore. Just can't wait to get better and be able to have a real walk.

I am one week away from my surgery and am so excited for it to get here! The liver shrink diet has not been bad, I've done pretty good on it so far. I started taking my vitamins that came from BariActiv via FedEx. I have to say I have NEVER tolerated vitamins before but these are not hard on my stomach and I don't feel sick after. The B12 in nasal spray form is so easy! Not sure how it will be after surgery but I'm optimistic they will be tolerated then too.

I've started counting my protein and entering everything on my tracker so that it will be routine and set up so it will be easier when I come home post op.

I appreciate the information I am getting from this forum and look forward to being able to contribute as my journey begins.

I am struggling with the same thing and not near goal yet. I have been having lots of stress in my life:
My daughter is in the process of breaking up with her husband
He has been a real jerk to her and has gotten rid of a lot of her things (like photo albums, books, DVDs, jewelry) - my daughter has cancer and had to come stay with me because she started having seizures and other health issues so he did this while she wasn't there with him. She is heartbroken.
The husband also must have been strapped for money because he started stripping my house (where he and my daughter had been staying) of any copper (plumbing pipes, vent tube), motors (air conditioner compressor, small appliance), and metal (stainless steel sink, parts of my furnace) and caused significant damage to walls during the process.
He let some other people move in who have been disruptive and neighbors have been complaining and now they won't leave. Had to go file for eviction yesterday and will have to go to court (it will still take about a month to go through this process).
In addition to all this, I work a lot - I have one job that is really two where I work 50% as an assistant professor at the University and 50% as a Director in a nursing department at a hospital. My other job is as a utilization review nurse both evenings on the weekends and 2 evenings during the week. And in the next couple of weeks I have some work related stressors coming up. emoticon

So, I am trying to take charge of the situation rather than be a helpless victim. I need to continue to take care of myself during this time which has been difficult, but I know I can do it. emoticon

I'm still struggling to find the "perfect" balanced eating plan and eliminate the "binging and grazing".

So I'm going to focus on the positives:
26.6 pounds since January.
I hit my goal weight of 100 lbs lost on April 14th and have been maintaining since then!
Biggest plus it that I'm down from a size "XL stretch pants" to a size 4/5 in jeans, and from 2XL to a women's Medium in tops!

Oh yeah... I forgot to share this news... Summer 2015, my son is going to Seabase which is a high adventure Boy Scout Base Camp in the Florida Keys near Islamorada and his troop asked me to go as one of the adult crew leaders. This is an extreme high adventure that requires a body to be seriously physically fit because the 10 days consist of taking a 60 ft sailing yacht out into the ocean and we'll all be sailing, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and swimming. So now I really have my motivation to maintain my weight and continue to work on becoming more physically fit... lots of upper body strength needed for this trip!!

A few months ago, not only would these people have not even given me a second thought to lead a crew of boys on this type of adventure, but I wouldn't have dared consider it either!! I am so excited that I'm going to be able to go join my son in something that he truly enjoys doing. I thought my son wouldn't be very happy about my presence as an adult leader but he is thrilled that I'm healthy enough to do his kind of "thang" and come with him. We'll actually get to celebrate his 14th birthday together on the high seas!!

OK... that is all, lol!!

Carol: that's a great idea!! I add mine daily to the nutrition tracker but I didn't think of adding them all in as a group. I'm gonna do that. It sure would make things easier and faster.

So far, I haven't had any problems with maintaining any of my levels according to lab work. I have my next set of labs in August so hopefully my body is keeping up with what I'm putting in and able to absorb it all well enough.

Pauline -- one more suggestion -- are you tracking your vitamins and supplements in your daily totals? I added the category "vitamins" as an additional meal category. I input all of my vitamins and supplements as new foods and then grouped them together as vitamins (so I only have to select the group each day to add to my tracker). Email me if you would like help doing this....

Hi Pauline!

My magnesium was low so I take a supplement - 3 times a day. It also helps with constipation.

Beans (especially white beans and soy beans) are super high in potassium -- more than bananas or leafy greens.

Here's a list of the Top 10 foods for Magnesium and Potassium:

es/foods-high-in-magnesium.php

Here's a list of the Top 10 foods with both:

I am so happy to see you are doing so well at 11 months out! Very proud of you!

Yes I must be patient

Oranges, peaches, pineapples ,cherries are rich in potassium . Dark leafy greens are rich in magnesium such spinach, Swiss chard and kale. One thing I like to do it's juicing so make a mixture if the fruit an veggies and a super nutrient drink for yourself.
I'm allowed to start juicing today:) I'll drink very little. Hope to be able to have one cup a day in small amounts.
Good luck and hope I could help a little

Kaza you are doing great. Just be patient.

I am 11 months post and I am having problem getting in my potassium and magnesium.

Any suggestions would be great. I like the new weekly progress on the nutrition board and that is what I have been using. I cannot seem to get there with the potassium and magnesium at all.

KAZA: It's possible you could have drank it too fast. Even if it's a smoothie you still have to drink it slow. I use to get that tight feeling a lot. Anything you have to do slowly for me is hard because I was built for one speed only "FAST" emoticon

Doing a food journal is always good I think. My WLS always asks for mine when I go to him. In my journal I always put the time I started eating my meal and also what time I stopped eating. I also keep up with how many liquids I drink in a day in my journal, that way I know if I haven't drank enough. If something made me sick I highlight it and I leave that food alone for a week or two then I go back and try it again and sometimes I found it won't make me sick the second time I tried it.

Thank you all

I have a had a smoothie made from tofu frozen fruit and milk 1/2 cup only . That was one of the things I could have for my step 2 diet plan , since I had it I feel something is stuck in my stomach and down my throat !! I'm not going to have anymore of it . I don't know how to get rid of that feeling because I don't feel like eating on top of it!! Just drinking. , I really don't want to trow up.
My Nut suggested that I start a food journal witch I find a good idea .

I know it's not easy to wait like this, but you are doing it for your own good . Less risk for the surgery. You need all your health after surgery believe me. I'm six day post and look like hell ,but it's ok. I need to be patient to for my recovery,

Got a phone call from my bariatric coordinator today. Was planning to call today, so was excited to hear from her. She told me they had gotten my blood results, but that my hemoglobin was too low right now for surgery. :C So she said to take my Vitron-C for a month and then have the labs redrawn. I am so frustrated! I was hoping to have my surgery by now, but it seems one thing after another pops up. Well, all I can do now is hope the Vitron-C pops my hemoglobin up to a level that the surgeon finds satisfactory, so I can have my surgery. I know that I just need to be patient.

Thank you Lori and Andrea
I'm feeling better , I have restless nights and I'm very thirsty . I'm trying to eat a little it's a little though when I'm thirsty and I have to eat , then wait an hour to drink. I'll manage and for sure it's worth it but not easy . I known that no good thing comes easy. I have started at 277.4 and I'm at 259 lbs today . Very happy
Can't wait to be able to go for a real walk or bike ride ..

I agree. It is all worth it. Soon you'll know it was the best decision you could have made. We've all been through this horrid stage but it will pass and the weight will start coming off and you'll know it was worth it.

KAZA: Hope you're feeling a little better today!! I know it's easy in the beginning to feel like you regret having the surgery but once you're past these beginning stages you'll look back and realize it was all worth it. It'll be a distant memory!! Let us know how things are going...

Hugs,
Lori

thank you girls
I am walking as much as possible , I really don't have energy and my meds makes me dizzy.
I did start walking as soon as they transferred me from waking up.
I am better today and I feel that I am hungry but its so painful to keep anything down , it takes me over an hour to take 60 ml of liquid. .I am going to make it , its not easy and wasn't ready for all this pain. yesterday I almost regret the surgery I was in such a bad shape.
thank you for all the support I really need it

KAZA: I'm so sorry your in so much pain, wish I could be there to help. When we say to walk I know you must think we are crazy. But walking is what is going to give you relief. They blew you up with a lot of gas and that gas is a lot of your pain. I'm with NSCRFAN try to get up at least every hour and walk. I made myself walk in the hospital every chance I could. I had my surgery on a Thursday and by Saturday I was good to go. The nurses told my husband that I put the other girls to shame that had their surgery the same day as me. Walking is the secret.

Kaza, I couldn't eat anything without throwing up either. In fact, I even threw up water but I had to keep trying so that I did not dehydrate. I kept taking my Dilaudid regularly for about the first week, then I tapered off. I know it's painful but the best thing you can do is get up and walk even for a few minutes at a time. I would just walk up and down my hallway a couple times every 30-45 minutes. It's painful now but you will feel better each day and it will all be worth it in the end.

I know it's tough to walk but that is the best way to get that gas out. I didn't eat much after my surgery. Make sure to drink plenty of water so you won't dehydrate.

I have tried a couple of different unflavored protein powders - they are not completely flavorless but they are basically not sweet. I used to use one called Any Whey and now I use Unjury. You can mix them in soups and other savory type foods (but they do change the taste a little).

Kaza, I have seen flavorless protein but I haven't tried it. Do you have a GNC store near you? Maybe try somewhere like that or on-line.
