  3. There's not much going on with the forums right now. I am scheduled in January 2021, as I need to lose another 50 pounds before they do my surgery.
  4. I'm waiting, surgery date is January 7th, and I have to admit that this is perhaps the biggest thing I worry about. During the Covid lockdown, an untenable situation existed with me being practically tethered to my kitchen. At least when I went to work every day, I was getting out of the house, and didn't have the opportunity to eat all of the time. I went from 435 to 482. I couldn't believe it! I was almost 500 pounds!!! I started Keto back in May, and since then I have lost almost 50 pounds, but the worst part of any eating plan is that over years of massive overeating, my stomach has
  5. You should be concentrating on your pre-op diet. Then starting some sort of exercise regime till surgery and after surgery. Remember,, what you do before and after surgery is is key to your success.
  6. I am scheduling my VSG surgery for November. Any advice on what I should do until then? It seems so long from now and I'm anxious to DO something!
  7. If that doesn't help you, The OCC offers a procedure that surgically resizes the pouch. The ObesityControlCenter.com website can give you more details.
  8. Thank you very much! I have not seen anything abt that before. I printed it and will start tomorrow with the soup. It makes sense, too. has anyone tried this? thanks again!!
  9. There are a few of these reset diets out there on the web. For some reason,, I can't get the reset diet loaded on the OCC forum. Just Google "Sleeve Reset" or "Pouch reset" or go to the OCC website/Facebook support groups and search.
  10. I am almost 3 years out and starting to regain too. It is completely emotional eating that I am trying to get under control. The pandemic certainly isn’t helping. I have been to a therapist a while ago to help which only helped a little bit. It is very depressing when it starts to come back. It’s figuring out the triggers that’s the difficult thing to do. It’s the mindless eating. it makes me so mad at me when I get on the scale and the numbers are going in the wrong direction. I try to blame to scale sometimes. :)
  11. The OCC is also on other social media platforms, like Facebook, contact an OCC coordinator for more info. This Forum is not as active as the Facebook groups.
  12. I was sleeved 8 years ago and looking to be revised to bypass - due to GeRD - I submitted an application to your program but would love any other information or contacts I might could receive regarding my particular situation thanks so much in advance
  13. I can suggest that your husband join the OCC forum and we also have several Facebook support groups. He can sort of stay in the background and observe other OCC patients with their journey and it could make him more on board. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1033707290046323/
  14. I am wanting to have surgery so bad and have for a few years but I cannot get my husband on board with the idea.
  15. Have you tried the Sleeve rescue diet? There's also another option, the Sleeve revision surgery that's offered by the OCC.
  16. Did you have your surgery? I’m 8 years out and gaining too. Desperate to get it under control
  17. Did you travel to get the surgery? If so, how far? I’m regaining at 9 years. Depressing.
