I everyone, hope you all are doing well. I have not been on in a while. My surgery date was Jan 5, 2015. I had no complications and everything has gone well. I am going into my 8th month and have lost a total of 120 lbs so far. I have been doing everything the drs have told me and still losing at least 10lbs a month give or take. I have not lost my hair and I pray I don't. Taking my vitamins (when I remember) for the most part and added biotin for my hair. If anyone that is thinking about surgery or just have questions...please feel free to message me. I will do my best to answer. Hope you all have a great week. You get out of this experience what you put in. This is not a quick fix.

Have a blessed day, Sheila

Happy Monday everyone!

Had to take the car to get repaired this morning and it ended up being a lot cheaper than anticipated-so that was good. Instead of it needing Struts-it only needed a Sway bar as that was loose and rattling-due to all the darn potholes up here.

THANKS Carol!
After gently trying to open the back with a coin - it wouldn't budge and I didn't want to force it-, I remembered there were the tools in the box I saved in my drawer.

Viola! Battery replaced and back put on without any breakage emoticon

What then hung me up was figuring out how to re-set the darn thing. After wasting a bunch of time going thru the site's web pages, I finally decided to just wear it 'as is' and let it re-set itself as usual at midnite. emoticon

I have a fitbit zip as well-You use that round screw driver that came with it to open the back of it and replace the battery and then screw the back- back on with it.

I am feeling great today! I have lost 10 lbs in the last two weeks, the best since surgery. And I did my measurements today and I have lost inches as well. I am starting to believe I might reach my goal! I have no idea what that will be like.

It's so important to stick to the RULES OF THE POUCH. Yesterday was not a good day due to my not following the rules that include my water and water loading before I eat and waiting for 1.5-2 hours after eating to drink. It is a new day and the only way that I can meet my goal is to follow the RULES and exercise at least 30 minutes per day and I will feel so much better.
IDEAL MEAL PROCESS (rules of the pouch):

1. The patient must time meals five hours apart or the patient will get too hungry in between.

2. The patient needs to eat finely cut meat and raw or slightly cooked
veggies with each meal.

3. The patient must eat the entire meal in 5-15 minutes. A 30-45 minute meal will cause failure.

4. No liquids for 1 ½ hours to 2 hours after each meal.

5. After 1 ½ to 2 hours, begin sipping water and over the next three hours slowly increase water intake.

6. 3 hours after last meal, begin drinking LOTS of water/fluids.

7. 15 minutes before the next meal, drink as much as possible as fast as possible. This is called "water loading," IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN DRINKING OVER THE LAST FEW HOURS, THIS 'WATER LOADING' WILL NOT WORK.

8. You can water load at any time 2-3 hours before your next meal if you get hungry, which will cause a strong feeling of fullness.

These rules work soooo well if you just follow them. I don't feel hungry and I get my water in. I also have lots of energy so that going to the gym is a no-brainer. I hope these rules will help everyone. If you haven't been following them, it will take a few days for your body to respond. Just hang in there. emoticon

Thanks Carol! Nice job! ❤️😄

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.... Www.like

Great idea to do a check in thread without tons of separate conversations! Thanks! I had an open long limb RNY 15 years ago. I lost 170 pounds from my highest weight, the day I first went to see the doc about surgery. I was 340 lbs. then, I lost 23 pounds to qualify for pre-op approval. In the first year and a half I lost down to 170 lbs. I then got scared by how vulnerable I felt, as a survivor of extensive childhood sexual abuse. I gained back 10 to 20 pounds, which I go up and down with. My original goal weight was 140 lbs, but I never made it. But I have maintained a 130 lb weight loss since the pre-op qualification. I have learned a lot along the way! I was told by the surgeon that if I wanted to see permanent results, I had to be willing to go the distance, seriously! That was defined by him as no sugar, ever, no refined carbs, either, protein, veggies then whole grain carbs, in that order.
I have b.s.'d myself into taking back and surrendering over and over, since then! But, now I am 51 going on 52 yrs old! I have been very committed to following my plan and getting support. For me, it was always about medicating my emotions with food. So, I see a great therapist, work hard at writing, expressing feelings, meditating and finding my peace within, not outside! I have come to realize that I am doing all of this because I love myself! It's not easy, but I have what it takes to love myself through releasing the last of my protective wall!
I hope that you have a great experience with your surgery, and that all are well this weekend!
I am recovering from pneumonia and focusing on healing this weekend!

Made homemade pizza for the guy I'm dating last night, made it as low fat as possible and he loved it (didn't even realize it was "diet"). Heading up to Michigan to see family on Sunday, then a busy rest of the month. The neighbor guy across the street told me yesterday that I'm disappearing I said THANKS!! :) Now if I could just get rid of this pesky cold!

Glad to see you were out and about, Patti. Weather here has been rainy and nasty-hope to get a break from that this next weekend. My husband and I want to get out on our weekend off.
Working at the hospital you have to work every other weekend. We work the night shift and so have to plan things around our sleep for that. Plus, the weather has not been a help lately.

I've been out and about for DAYS. That's a good thing, but I miss checking in and seeing what everyone is doing....

I've been to the county fair twice this weekend and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Didn't have a chance or energy to walk/jog my Park Circuit on those days, but I sure wore out some shoe leather (actually flip flop rubber) emoticon

Today is get back to work & home routines....

I don't know if this is where I'm suppose to go or not, but I'm planning on having the RNY surgery in Sept or Oct of this year. I've been on a team for Gastric Sleeve Surgery, but now I'm not doing that.

Hopefully, I'll find a home and friends here.

Take Care,
Dee

This has been a blessed week for me! I saw my Oncologist Monday afternoon and she said all reports say I am still cancer free 2 years and 4 months counting. I do not have t see her again For 6 months. I saw my primary care doctor today for my annual physical and almost everything is great. I do have issues with Ferritin and iron levels being very low but the good news is, I am not anemic! She said to continue eating the healthy way I have been and jeep up the water aroebics 3 times a week. Since I lost all this weight, I have a noticeable lump on the upper part of my back on the right side. My oncologist sent me for an X-Ray today. My doctor advised me after this test came back and her physical examination, stated that I obviously was born with Scoliosis and now that I have lost the weight you can really see it. I told her all my life my Mother and others have nagged me about standing up straight and not bending over. With the severe Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis that I have, I thought that was the reason I have such a hard time making myself stand up tall and straight. She said that continuing with my exercising will help strengthen my abdominal and back muscles and may even help slow the process of the Scoliosis. I feel very blessed to feel so good and to be exercising again! I pray all of you have a very blessed weekend! Reading the posts on here makes me feel connected to others who have gone through similar things and are becoming overcomers too!

Hi Everyone! I am back on SparkPeople now that I have all my surgeries behind me! I am back to charting all my food that I eat because for the last few months my Feritin and Iron levels have been extremely low along with Vit. B-12, and Vit. D. I take all my vitamins that my doctor asks me to take along with extra iron tablets, Vitamin D and C and I take a Vit B-12 injection monthly, I feel very good and I was released by my surgeon to start water aroebics last week. The classes last an hour and are 3 times a week. I go to my primary doctor tomorrow for my annual physical and blood tests. I saw my oncologist last Monday and had tons of blood work. She said I am still cancer free! Yeah!! I had the double Masectomy on January 9, 2013 which was only 5 months after having my gastric bypass surgery on August 4, 2012. I have come along way since my weight loss journey has begun and I lost almost all my weight the first year. I lost about 12 more pounds after having the hanging skin removed from my arms, abdomen and thighs. I had my thigh lift on March 23rd this year. I set my personal goal of 145 pounds and that is just 10 pounds to go. I am writing everything down to make sure I am getting all my protein in. I still have to drink a protein shake daily because I cannot eat very big portions at all. I have never experienced constipation after my surgery. I had my gall bladder removed in 2010 and after the weight loss surgery, I began to have major problems with diahhrea. It has become more normal now but if I eat anything with too much fat, the diahhrea returns. I am thankful that I am very regular 2 sometimes 3 times a day. I am going to start checking in every day and read your posts. I find it very helpful and motivating. I really missed being on here but for the last two years I have been in a battle for my life and I found it difficult to get on the Internet much. Now that I am doing well, it will be nice to make friends on here again! My choice to have gastric bypass surgery is the best decision I have ever done. I no longer have to be on oxygen at all, no heart problems, no high blood pressure and no more severe obstructive sleep apnea! That is the greatest part. Dropping from a size 24 to a size 8 are the added benefits! I turned 64 on May 2nd and people tell me I look like I am in my 40's! It really has boosted my self-confidence and made me feel so happy and alive again! God Bless you all as you continue on your weight loss journey!

Thank you both! I am using Metamucil already, but beans....! Lol! I don't know if it's because I had the long limb RNY ,or what, but since surgery they don't digest and swell up inside me! I get very sick if I eat them! I miss them, though! 😔 I am eating spinach salads and adding flax meal and chia seeds where I can. It's just very slow and difficult. I am getting in all of my water too! Yay! 😃 Thanks for the help!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.... Www.like

Yup, I am doing great with my proteins and water, but I am phenomenally constipated! I am trying to work in fiber without getting too high on carbs. It has been very challenging!

Love the pico especially on a baked potatoe in lieu of sour cream.

Spa day today. Packing for trip to Martha's Vineyard. Have never been to Massachusetts or on a senior bus tour so should be interesting.

I have nearly doubled my wardrobe. The last few years my sister-in-law had lost weight. My brother wanted her clothes to go to family and friends. She had great tastes in clothing and some had never been worn. I am trying to use my things--best dishes, crystal etc.

Just wanted to stop by and say hello. I have been waiting to see how all the changes on SparkPeople website affect the ease of use. Over abundance of ads and simplicity gone. So I just want to save goodbye. I am removing myself from the leadership of the team. I wish everyone success. If you use Myfitnesspal you may see me occasionally.

Went to a support group here in Missouri. Was pleased they accepted us since my surgery was in Virginia. Most of their members were only a few weeks to a few months out. Felt like a veteran.
