That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
Hang in there gypsy..120 pounds is great! I am starting week 3 post op..and can only.
To do that well! As for your partner..you are the support she needs, as she is yours..hang in there...be patient..be strong. Sending prayers and hugs..Skye..
Hey Gypsy, welcome to DS. No worries about not being perfect of a "poster child". We all just do our best day to day. When we detour off the program, we get back on it, and go from there. You have had a great success already, and with you and your partner working the program together, you'll certainly see more successes in the future. Good luck to you...
If you stick to the basics, recommit yourself during your partner's rebirth, maybe even starting over, with her and getting perspective on where you may have slipped, if indeed you have..
The BEST role model you can be is to play the "NO LAME, SHAME, BLAME GAME" on yourself!..
Welcome ... this group has alot of very informed and willing people to share their.
With you. Once the Drs. fix your stomach problem recommit yourself to the program with your partner. Remember we are not robots we are human and we do slip up once and a while. Hang in there....Mary..
Hi Gypsy...Not sure any of us are poster children for weight loss.
..nor is it a requirement for using this sight or getting the support you need. We are all in the same boat here. Not to mention the fact that 120 pounds is A LOT of weight that you have already lost. Please feel good about what you have already accomplished. Do not see your weight loss as some kind of failure. Where would you be if you had not had the.
? It is never too late to get back on track and keep moving forward. Let us be your support and cheerleaders..
The fact that your partner is having the procedure should also help you. I'm sure that you want her to be successful and that seeing her go through the process will be motivating for you..
Sending you good thoughts for finding a surgeon to fix the issues you're having. Please be good to yourself :)..
Hi I also am a gastric bypass paitent it will be six years Feb 9th since I had the gastric. I lost 161 in 11 months. I am having a hard time keeping my appetite in check. I defintley can eat more than I should and I have had a recent weight jump of 13 pounds. Doesnt sound like alot but when you are smaller that is three sizes and clothes dont fit! If you have any questions or I can be of any help to you or your partner I would love to be there for you. Being a Medifast food addict doesnt go away with a.
Is a tool to help but it still requires us to fight the good fight and never give up...
Gypsy, wow how can you feel like a failure when you have lost 120 pounds! I can only pray that I will ever lose even 100! I am losing so much slower than most people on here, but I feel that as long as I'm not gaining, then I am being successful. You should just focus on how well you have done so far, and take heart at that. Go back to focusing your eating on proteins, with small amounts of fruits and veges. Cut out the carbs too, and you will be back on track in no time! Best of luck to you!..
Hi! I'm 9 months out. I've lost 85lbs not as much as I wished but I'm feeling good. I've been having pain in my stomach since the month after.
Finally they found what was wrong. I have gallstones and I'm having my gallbladder removed on Wednesday October 27. I.
That takes care of the problem. I don't consider myself a poster child either but I think I'm doing OK...
Well you came to the rite place for support and atleast you are trying to fix your mistakes so hang in and know that we are all here for you..
Well, I don't know where to start. I am 14 months post-op and to date I have lost almost 120 lbs. I know I should have lost more and I take full responsibility for that failure, but I DO NOT want to gain any weight back so I am looking for support. My life partner is getting ready to have her bypass on the 5th of November and I want to be a good support for her! I am currently is the hospital...everything I ate caused severe pain and nausea/vomiting. They did a scope and said my pouch looks fine but I had a swallow study yesterday and my stomach is not emptying correctly. They don't have a gastric specialist on staff here and my surgeon was from MI.
I know I'm not a poster child for success but I really want to make some changes before it's too late =(..
Can your partner's GBSSurgeon look at you about this problem with your pouch maybe? If you can. You could have some blockage (stricture from the scar tissue_I'm not a Dr.), but they say that that can develop anytime,even years later. I am only nine months out. I haven't been.
, but next month I think I better keep one. I tend to drift off program. I have slowed down weight wise too. I am exercising twice a week now, but need to add a third day now. When you get your pouch emptying better,keep a journal and moniter everything and go from there back to basics. Good luck.
Someone can help with this soon...
120 pounds is something to be proud of.. think of how far you have come.. I wish you and your partner the best.. you both can do this.. you have....
Hey Gypsy, 120 pounds! Gosh I cant wait to loose that much! Someone posted earlier, recommit with your partner, and possibly start over if you feel you need to. But don't give up! God Bless you and I will remember both of you in my prayers...
Welcome Gypsy. This site has helped me tremendously. I used to use facebook but it wasn't as warm as the family here. Hopefully your hospital will figure out what is wrong or they will ask another bypass surgeon from another hospital to consult. Good luck to you and your partner on your continued journey and NEVER feel like a failure, we are all in the same place with the same fears and we always "get back on the bike after we fall". Your weight loss to date is to be congratulated not sorrowful. Take care...
What are they going to do for you? I.
They help you soon! I think you have done great! Please get well soon...I am praying for your..
