weight lost

Dear DisneyFlorida,

Weight lost is different with each person, I lost about 10 lbs, but I was and still am over weight (by dr standards). Some of the loss is due to what is removed, but that is only about a 1-3 lbs.

Just think, now you maybe able to have that two scoop sunday.

Good luck,

finally a date

Hi, I'm not very big either. I'm almost 5' 2"and just under 110 pounds. I lost about 8 pounds or so right after my hyst. Mostly because I couldn't eat very much at a time for awhile - not much appetite either ( that's NOT normal for me). I did gain it back after I healed, now I'm just about the weight that I was pre hyst. I'm an active person - just can't sit still for long.

What I did to help was to make sure that I DID eat, I had my family help to remind me ( pain meds make me loopy ). I tried to eat healthy foods. What worked for me was soups, sherbets, fruit and fruit juices, ice cream - anything that I could tolerate and was easy to digest. I avoided anything that was gas producing. Instead of 3 meals a day, for awhile I ate several small "snacks" during the day. It worked pretty well.

Best wishes.

Would you check your profile? It says that your surgery is July 22 and your post has July 25.
