    I take Swisse Calcium and vitamin D, Ferrograd C and Celebrate multivitamin. Celebrate is only Available in the US but that is what's recommended for sips patients. Unsure about Roux en y patients. You will need a chewable for first 4 weeks or as directed by your team.

    How Much Fat

    You are allowed oil each day. It's either 2 teaspoons or 2 tablespoons (sorry my brains not working properly yet I'm sleep deprived). Make sure you have your oil each day as it keeps your gallbladder functioning (this is what I was told). Are you under the care of a dietician?

    I feel amazing. I'm dressed up as Wonder Woman it was superhero day at work. No Way would I have ever fit my costume pre surgery. I'm happy and full of confidence even though I'm not at my goal weight yet. How are you going?

    94.2kgs! Very happy with my progress. I've bought a superhero costume for work tomorrow for superhero dress up day. I hope it fits! It's stretchy so I will try my best. Not long and I will drop down to obese category 1. I was told Sips surgery patients lose weight slower than sleeve patients however they lose weight for 2 years. I was expecting slower weight loss and I'm pleasantly surprised. Everyone is doing so well! Millymollymandy 200 grams is nothing. Denzel I understand the being short thing. I'm 162cm which is taller than some but I'm definitely not a tall lady and I've always tended to carry weight in my tummy even as a size 6 if I put on 1kg it would automatically show in the stomach. Can't wait for my stom to get even smaller.

    My surgeon makes his patients give up all caffeinated drinks pre surgery and early post op. No coffee was killer for me!

    KEEN ON BYPASS need help

    Hi and welcome! I had sips surgery which is sleeve with approx 3 metres of intestines being bypassed. This is my surgeon's choice of surgery for those with diabetes as you don't get wild fluctuations with sugar. I'm in Perth so I can't help with a surgeon recommendation unless you want to fly over here. My surgery was May 17th I did 3 weeks of Optifast prior to surgery and the 2 days before surgery was nourishing liquids only (no solid food however everyone's instructions vary). All up including the 3 weeks of Optifast I have lost 19.9kgs. My bmi was 45 and put me in the morbidly obese category. My bmi is now 37.4 and for the first time in years I'm under 100kgs. Absolutely no regrets here. Research all the surgical options and the differences. Lastly your surgeon will be able to make a recommendation on type of surgery based on your individual circumstances. Best of luck.

    98.2kgs this afternoon. I do weigh most days and a couple of times I've gained but then a day or 2 later lose it plus extra. Trying not to get too caught up with those fluctuations. My size 16 jeggings fit but are tight on the stomach. Also I've got a job! I start Monday. I'm so excited.

    Hi @denzel I'm waiting to hear from my surgeon as I trust his opinion and he is very thorough. The test showed I have inflammation in my body I'm wondering if that's the Hashimotos disease. I have been told if your iron is under 10 you will need an infusion but all the gp wanted to do was repeat the test in a month. No good when I'm exhausted.

    99.6kgs. Total loss of 18.5kgs. Need to step it up now but I'm exhausted as I'm Iron deficient and the gp who does the iron infusions told me I didn't need it even though my iron is at an 8. He also tried to push a mirena onto me and when I said I would not have anything inserted he said I had staples in my stomach. Quick as a flash I told him that wasn't my vagina. I've asked the Receptionist to fax my results to my surgeon. I'm not particularly happy with the gp I saw.

    Your pre- WLS life - and am I worthy?

    I put off weight loss surgery since 2014 as I couldn't afford phi. I was 103 - 104kgs then. I was 118.1kgs in April of this year. Slowly my weight kept creeping up. My phi had kicked in and the last straw was seeing myself in the photos at my daughter's birthday party in February. I had my appointment in the public system only to be told I still had a 2 year wait. I chose to access my super for the gap with my husband's blessing. At first he was against it as I didn't have much to begin with and being a stay at home mum (currently looking for work) I don't have money going into my super. I had my surgery on the 17th May this year and my current weight is 99.8kgs. I have 45kgs to go. My problem was I was hungry all the time. On Saturday I had a treat - brown rice sushi (I don't eat carbs apart from sweet potato as a rule). I managed 3 pieces whereas Pre surgery I would have eaten 3 x handrolls (I wish I was joking). I also would have carbs with every meal to fill me up because they're cheap and on one income we struggle sometimes. These days I have protein and if I can fit it in some veggies and sweet potato or green peas. I don't like pumpkin much.

    I put glasses on layby last week which cost a small fortune so that can be my treat. My current glasses feel like they are too wide and the shape no longer suits. I'm excited to pick the new ones up when ready. I chose Michael Kor frames oops. It was the only pair I tried on the colour drew me to them so I tried them on and fell in love.

    Guess who got under 100kgs today! 99.8kgs to be exact. I've never been so happy or confident even though I'm not near goal weight just yet.

    Goal Weight

    Hi @denzel I'm 162cm tall so not very tall. Hopefully once I've lost weight wearing heels becomes more comfortable. Sometimes heels makes the outfit and it's nice to be that bit taller.

    Goal Weight

    Goal weight for me is 55kgs. I've been there before and was happy. At 55kgs I was a size 6 - 8. Monitor my weight app is telling me my ideal weight is 54.8kgs.

    Jeans

    Hey Zaruse I'm wearing leggings in a size 16. I tried on my old jeggings in a 16 which fit but too tight on the stomach. I've got some size 16 jeans with tags still on which won't even go over my legs. Might have to buy to fit my stomach and instead of skinny leg go for boyfriend style. I'm trying not to buy a lot right now.

    Alcohol

    My surgeon recommends zero alcohol until you are at your goal weight. I plan to try my best to follow his recommendation.

    I'm noticing my stomach is slowly getting smaller. That said I put on some old tops and they are all loose on the arms which is awesome as I have really big arms and most of my stuff is too tight in the arms (some of it now fits). My face looks smaller too.

    Hi @Millymollymandy a couple of weeks ago my mil commented I'd lost weight. When I was saying my rings were too big and I would put them on a chain a mum at school commented that I'd lost all my weight. I was like um no I have heaps more to go. Another mum asked if I'd started losing and I told her how much I'd lost and she was impressed. I don't know if others have noticed or if they have they haven't said anything probably because weight is a sensitive subject. 2 of the dance mums told me I looked amazing, they have both had surgery too. They were a week and a week and a half after me.

    Hey @zaruse I feel amazing! I've dropped a size! My bra size including band size is still the same but my old tops are loose in the arms which was a pleasant surprise as I've only really noticed my stomach getting smaller. Time to try my size 16 jeggings on again. Last time they fit but with a huge muffin top/feeling like I was suffocating. I can't wait to try solids as so far pureed chicken has been so bland. I hope that solid chicken tastes better otherwise guess I won't be eating it anymore.
