Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..
Mary I am glad to hear you are still off diabetic meds and yay for the pool!..
Sx July 22, down 71 lbs. Doing great! I have had a few bumps in the road but not one regret. One day this past week, I was getting dressed and my dress pant kept slipping down. I had to pin them before I left the house! Great feeling...
Yay for the pants falling down and Congrats on your 71lbs!..
I had my rebirthday 9/22/09 and I have lost 80 to 85 pounds depending on the day..
I was 303 at my heaviest and now at 250. I had my.
On 8/30/10. I had no complications and was only in the hospital one night. Went home. (3 hour drive the next day). I was off work for 2 weeks and did go back the 3rd, but went home early every day as naps were needed! Within one week of.
I was off all my diabetes meds, including insulin. Only take one B/P med and it has been cut in half..
To be off that in a month. The appearance is great to see, but I'm more thrilled with the decrease in meds!.
I'm shinking slowing but surely and I now am getting out of my previous "skinny clothes". YIPEE!.
I have no regrets.
I get up early now post op automaticly for some reason and read most posts, but it is topics like this that make me come back the next day. I just love seeing all the.
And excitement in everyones life. It's so funny to be SO inspired by fat ppl. Keep it up all you girls and I just loved these stories you brought Lauri..
Very good Sharon for getting out of those skinny clothes, woohoo!..
I am kind of lazy when it comes to typing and I have met so many people on here so instead of me sending a message to each one of you I want you all to let me know how you are each doing in your journey. Thanks a million!!!!!!..
I just want everyone to know how proud I am of them. I am gonna quit commenting on this thread to shorten it some I love you all and Lu you are The Man!..
5 days post op and I feel pretty good..
I don't have a lot to update but my very first WOW moment of my new journey:.
I walked from recovery to my real room in the hospital. The nurses said I was only the second person they had ever witnessed.
From recovery, the first was a guy..
I deserve a plaque..
Now i'm just sipping,.
, resting and thrilled I still have one week before I have to go back to work...
I'm just 5 days post op and seem to be struggling a bit. Am having difficulties finding anything that tastes good. But all in all it is good. I am getting in good walks. Very thankful that I don't have to return to work until Nov. 30th!..
Great thread idea Lauri :).
Me: Not too shabby. Thinking about going back under the knife for 3rd round of plastics (inner thighs and more arm work) but having trouble psyching myself up and the logistics (timing, $, etc make my head spin).
You are well! :)..
Im 9 months out and down 160 lbs (including the 30 I lost pre-surgery). Only 15 lbs left to get to the goal weight the nutritionist set for me before.
; however, Im not sure it is the right goal for me (Im starting to get some rib-sticking-out action). Ive gone from a size 30/32 to a 6/8. My bras have gone from 46 to 36. I even had to have my wedding ring re-sized from an 8 to a 5!!.
Im looking into my first round of plastics guess Ill start with the front. Its time for everyone to get back up where theyre supposed to be!! Ill take care of the back and legs in The Great Remodel - Phase 2..
I feel great but Im looking forward to the losing part of the journey being over...so I can start building a wardrobe!!.
Thank you so very much for your post. I NEEDED to read these notes. I am 2 weeks post op and getting a little discouraged. I was 228 pre op and now I am 220. I am a little tired of the.
And dying to test other foods. My dr. wants me to do one more week of liquid but I just want to "scream"Thanks again for the post..
Hi everyone, this is my first time here in this support group. I had gastric bypass in April 2010. 7 months out and I have lost 115 pounds since my.
I lost 25 pounds before.
, so I have shrunk 140 pounds. I found out I like sugar free pudding, so that has been my weakness of late. I think I need to throw that out, I don't want to go backwards...
Great thread idea! I think it ought to be a monthly thing.....
I am 5 days post-op. Haven't weighed yet, so not sure how much I've lost. Doc advised not to do it until all the fluid they pumped into me in the hospital was gone. The worse pain is gas. Having trouble getting it all out of my body. I envy my husband and dogs farts...LOL Other than that, trying to get used to my new digestive arrangement...
Welcome, Shrinky! Sounds like you have been doing great!!.
