Woo Hoo! I have a check up on Thursday (19th) at noon for them to review my blood sugar readings and my weight. I fell off the wagon and had gained 10 pounds so they need to make sure that is gone (and hopefully more) and that my blood sugar readings are all below 200. Then my surgery is at 7:30am on 02/23/15

Hi girls

Jen that's great 20 lbs already . Don't forget to mesure to
I'll chekck your YouTube chanel :)

Karri woohoo 15 inches it's amazing

My weight loss it's super slow now . I have to mesure my self again . After the 100lbs loss it's moving like a turtle...I try to stay positive and keep working out . As this rate I won't be able to lose my 29 lbs by the end of May . But I am still proud of myself. 103lbs in 8 months it's good enough.

take care
Yalda

I'm looking forward to checking out your Youtube channel!

So yesterday I was 3 weeks post-op and I lost 1 pound. It was kind of discouraging but I did my monthly measurements as well and since 12/29/14 I've lost nearly 15 inches. So that made it a bit better! :)

I didn't lose on my pre-op diet but was down 20lbs 5 days after surgery. I guess my body finally did let go of it. Down 2lbs week 2. I'm fine with that after a big loss. I was a bit worried I'd see a gain because of dehydration last Monday.

Went to walk in clinic to get off my diuretics. Dehydration issues. Was successful my BP was lower off mess for 5 days than it had been before surgery on 2 different blood pressure meds Interesting I got rid if those so quick.

I have a youtube channel Jens new life check it out. It's about my WLS journey.

Made it to the gym yesterday (did 30 minutes on the treadmill) and back to work today. I'm feeling really well.

They took out my gallbladder when they did my rny so I don't have to worry about stones or anything like that . :)

Surgery was Wednesday. I Got out of hospital yesterday. I probably would have stayed another day but didn't want to be stuck there for the weekend.

Im not getting in my liquids or protein yet because I'm sleeping too much.

Hi Kazablanka2009!

Congratulations on your success!!!!!! I had no idea that others had the stall in weight loss 2 weeks out. Everywhere that I read said it wasn't normal and I was starting to panic. I am so happy to hear that other people experienced this as well. Hallelujah! Have a great day!!

Good morning everyone

Girlbug. Congrats on your weight loss. Me to I had a 2 week stall just 2 weeks post op.
It's normal so don't worry and 6 months from now you'll be so diffrent and smaller :)
It's now easy but so worth it , you got to take it slow in the first couple of months . Personally I didn't eat much . I am almost 8 months post op and have list 103 lbs :)


Karri. That's great news and glad that you don't have anything serious.
Are they going to do something for the stones ? Or you just have to wait?
It's great that you are going back to the gym but don't over do it ...
Happy exercising

My follow up went really well. I saw the nutritionist who was really happy that I was tracking everything especially my protein and fluids, she was impressed that I get 64oz already. The physician's assistant said everything looked really good including the incision that had to be left open, it's all healing well. The pathology report on my gallbladder came back that it was completely full of stones and the walls of the gallbladder were abnormally thick but no cancer or anything like that. I'm feeling pretty good, driving again (yay), and tomorrow I'm starting back at the gym. :)

1. Where are you at in your journey?
2. How many calories are you taking in daily on average?
3. How many pounds lost as of today?
4. How are you feeling these days?

Hi Everyone!

1. I had the Duodenal Switch surgery on 12/23/14. It's definitely a process!!

2. I currently get between 450-850 calories. If I eat food not prepared by me I can get up in the 1000 calorie range though.

3. As of today I have lost about 30 pounds - it's been exactly one month today. But I haven't lost any weight over the last two weeks. Yesterday when I jumped on the scale the weight loss had finally started again!!

4. It varies how I am feeling by the minute. Weight loss surgery is not easy. Sometimes I can eat a food and tolerate it well one day and the next day it will not do well with me. Sometimes my body is in so much pain that I can't relax or sleep. Despite all the crazy issues I had during and after the surgery I am still very happy that I decided to go through with this drastic measure to improve my overall health! I look forward to seeing where I am at 6 months from now. :)

1. Where are you at in your journey? Just made the decision. Insurance requires 6 months of medically supervised weight loss before they will approve the surgery.

Looking forward to learning from this Spark Team as I move toward the surgery hopefully in July 2015.

Surgery is Monday!! :) I learned that the surgeon is also taking out my gallbladder because it's either full of stones or what they call a "porcelain" gallbladder (meaning it's calcified and puts me at a greater risk of gallbladder cancer). So at least he's taking it out while he's in there.

I'm not really nervous, just ready.

Hello everyone!

Went to post-op class yesterday and that went fine. The only problem was the horrible weather. It took the normal two hour trip home into almost three and a half. Didn't find out if my surgeon got my test results,so still have a bit of worry, but not too much. Planning on spending the week after surgery with mom so I have someone to help me with stuff and with my dog. It seems strange that you go in one day and get out around noon the second day. I am still completely excited! Made cookies for mom last night and didn't even have a bit of an urge to eat even one. I have never experienced that sensation before. They were very pleased with my weight loss from the liquid diet at the hospital. I am hoping everything goes smoothly.

Well enough babbling. Goodnight everyone!

Hello girls

I know it's not easy , but stay strong girls emoticon
It's all so worth it girls
I lost 100 lbs in 7 months . And we all know how difficult is to lose only half of that so the surgery it's a big help

Just try to think about the results and you'll be ok

Aisha I hope you will have good results for your test . And way to go and staying strong and not eating pizza or cookies...

I bought baby plates and silverware from the dollar store too!! You're right it's like a whole new world trying to eat with it!!

I'm on day 9 of the liquid diet, it hasn't been as bad as I thought. Just making sure I'm definitely getting my fluids in along with my 4 shakes. I turned into an emotional mess yesterday and had a bit of a meltdown but talked with some amazing girls I met via an online FB support group so I ended up feeling a lot better.

I have my pre-op class tomorrow, surgery is Monday. I'm SO excited!

I'm using Pure Protein which is okay, I mix it with a cup of skim milk. I have done pretty good. Haven't had problems with cravings or too much hunger. The only time I had any weakness was when my stepfather made a pizza. I usually don't like pizza that comes from boxes, but this ones smelled so good right from the oven. I haven't had anything to eat in so long it feels like forever now. I start day 6 of my liquid diet today, since it is just past midnight for me now. Will be going to sleep soon. I went out earlier today to do my laundry at a community center I go to, and the worst possible thing was there. Two BIG bags of cookies! I was soooo tempted to eat and never lift up my head. I wanted to call my mom for support, but the phone didn't have a dial tone and their computer wasn't working and I didn't have my cell phone with me. So basically, I curled up on the couch and watched TV. I didn't eat any cookies. I talked to my mom later, and I feel stronger for that. I am praying my hemoglobin is high enough for the doctor tomorrow. I got my time of month, right before blood work, so I have a funny feeling it might be down. It has been bouncing all over the place, but hopefully the surgeon doesn't cancel my surgery because of it. Will find out by tomorrow afternoon. I will update you guys on it when I find out. I have my pre-op class on Thursday. I am really looking forward to that. I want to be able to eat again. lol Went to the dollar store on Saturday and picked up some baby spoons and forks. They really change the way you eat. Soup becomes a complete different dish. lol I actually enjoy eating soup with the baby spoon, except it gets cold too soon. Well, enough of me talking all night. Too much energy for some reason lately. Must be because my braid is able to work without thinking about food all the time. LOL Have a great Tuesday!

It's hard to believe that surgery is a week from tomorrow. I had a bit of a melt down moment last night where I thought OH GOSH what am I doing to myself?!! But I posted on a Facebook support group and just got some great support. So I'm feeling good today.

Still plugging away on my liquid diet, hit up the Vitamin Shoppe today and got a couple of samples of different protein powders. I was SO excited for banana flavored lol.

I did the same thing, totally set myself up on a schedule, seems to be working great. I'm on day 5 and still plugging along. I got on the scale this morning just to see and I've shed nearly 9 pounds.
What shakes are you using? I have 5 different flavors of the Body Fortress but I'm thinking of checking into the Syntha-6 a lot of my workout friends say it's amazing.

First day of liquid diet was a breeze. I was completely shocked. I drank a couple of cups of broth, not too many because of all the sodium, and ate my snacks. Ate my meal shakes at regular times also. It was almost too easy. I actually ate at regular times which I have never done in my life. I also took my medications at regular times and tested my blood sugar. I think having to be on this liquid diet might actually be a good thing.

Aisha, I'm in the liquid phase as well (mine started the 29th) it hasn't been as bad as I anticipated. I even survived grocery shopping yesterday :)

I'm heading to a support group on Monday evening, pre-op clas on the 7th, then surgery is the 12th. It's crazy how quickly it's getting here. I'm SO excited.

I'm sure it will all turn out well for you! :)

Got all my stuff for my liquid diet and am all ready for that. I start my liquid diet tomorrow. Feeling so hyped right now. My house is completely cleaned, almost as cleaned as when I first moved in, excepted filled with all my junk. lol I am also happy because my mom decided that she would be with me for my liquid diet, but I'm not sure if she will be or even for how long. Her husband is always bring home treats and candy. I got my paperwork from my clinic about the pre-op class I have to go to, there is no problem with that. The only problem I might have is that I have to do a pre-op physical and they want pre-op hemoglobin and I have been having problems with that for months. I hope for once that that comes back fine. I want this surgery so badly. That sounds so horrible! To actually want someone hurt you. So my physical is on the 6th and I will find out then. I hope they will let my surgery go ahead, if not I will be crushed, but I know my health is the most important thing.

I am super excited. I just found out today that I read reach my goal weight and even though I almost wasn't at my goal weight I met it by .1 pounds so I sent the way up to the cities and I got approved for surgery so on January 15 I am having my surgery. Starting on January 1 I am doing my liquid diet and I set up all the appointments I need to do and I'm so excited I can't believe this is happening!

I'm just starting. I'm pre op, just fell into the idea of WLS. Was recommended by drs and a few friends. I'm 26 years old with diabetes type II, kidney disease, a fatty liver due to my weight, tachycardia also due to my weight, and asthma, which I have always had.

The process seems to take forver. I don't want to have to wait an entire year to do this.

Hello everyone

Aisha congrats on reaching your weight goal .its great and hopefully you get your date soon

Global juju, you are welcome
Just take it slow and be patient , don't force anything . You. Will see the pounds melting

I am almost 7 months post op and I gained a pound. That shows that as soon as you let your self go ( even if you can't eat much ) you will gain weight. It is a life time commitment .
I am disappointed but not discouraged . I have lost 95 lbs and I have 37 lbs to go . I will get there . My goal is to lose the remaining weight in the next 5 months

Have a great day everyone

Hello everyone. Haven't checked in for a while, because nothing has been happening in my journey. I had to lose some of the weight I gained again, why does that keep on happening! It was about 10 pounds but the surgeon has gotten a lot more firm since a lot of his patients have been trying to slip through the cracks. Also, had to see the dietician 2 times again, since the last time I saw her was a year ago and my insurance required current visits. So the visit are done and today I reached my goal weight. So I plan to go to a clinic in town and get weighed and have the weight faxed to the surgeon. They said after they received it they could get prior authorization.I hope that doesn't take too long. I know I definitely won't be able to get my surgery this year, but January would be great! I have started working out to WATP again, which I haven't done for a while. So here is to hoping my clothes don't weigh too much tomorrow. lol

Sharon you are welcome
