Scared to eat

Sign in to follow this  


I am stuck in a rut eating very small amounts of food. I am actually afraid to eat because I do not want to stretch the new stomach. I still drink 2 protein shakes a day. I have a little bit of yogurt for lunch. And some days that is it. The scale doesn't move as much and I know it is because I am not revving up my metabolism like I should. Can't wait to get passed this and be able to eat a small plate of food. My surgery was January 14, 2014. Any body else go through this?

soft mushy foods. my surgery was Jan. 16. cream of soup w/protein powder -suggested size 8 oz. I had about 6 oz without feeling too full or depriving myself. I drank tea, decaf anything warm, my stomach could not stand cold or even room temp. broth was my friend. 1/4 cup applesauce w/protein. or 1/4 cup low fat, well cooked beans. that was my breakfast lunch or dinner choices. when I didn't feel like having any of these, i would have a protein shake instead.
