    What to have at home after surgery?

    Anyone try Stur? I love it! No aspartame or sucralose.

    This is the first time this has happened. I do workout, I just didn't add my protein up the night before like I usually do I'm just going to have a salad after the gym tonight. I'll make sure I add everything up tonight so it doesn't happen again. Sent from my Moto E (4) using BariatricPal mobile app

    3 more days !!!!!

    Ramadan certainly has been a life saver. I don’t think I’m going to fast after surgery just because of the delicate nature of post-op, I really don’t want to deviate away from the normal procedure for patients unless it clearly helps me. However, I’ll still talk to my surgeon about it for sure.

    No energy!

    Tons of fluids including broth w/a pinch of sea salt (to help absorb electrolytes) and some sort of electrolyte supplement (sugar free versions of Propel, Gatorade,etc) But as always... Ask your team first 💜

    I have a "would you rather' question

    I am almost 7 months out, and can tolerate pretty much everything, i think. The first time I had a serious sugar food (a couple bites of a dessert of some kind, I don't remember) I had a bad experience so I basically steer away from sugar. I don't miss it. I haven't had any bread/pasta/rice/root veggies since surgery, so I'm not sure if I can tolerate those, but I suspect I can just fine. My restriction is pretty much still in full effect. I have learned how much food I can eat before I start to feel uncomfortable, and stop before I get there. I have also learned which foods are my slider foods, and which ones keep me fuller longer. I weigh myself every day and I have learned/know that if I exercise, get a good nights sleep, and drink my water the weight seems to comes off at a faster rate. So to your question, which would I rather? I'm good with the way things are, as I've figured out how to work it for me. I'm not sure if I would have learned the same lessons if things weren't the way they are, but maybe I would have learned different lessons to get me to the same end goal. At least I hope I would have.

    I have a "would you rather' question

    I'm on both sides lol I had VSG, almost no restriction felt on most foods and dump more than most bypassers I've encountered, mostly from random things including proteins but not pastry 😳 & still lost very slowly.I've decided to work with the hand I was dealt, not against it. You can find your sweet spot and accomplish great things. And the grass is always greener where you water it Good luck 💜

    I don't really understand your post. The sugar in Greek yoghurt and fruit is not somehow morally superior to the sugar in anything else. I don't assign "guilt" to food. It's morally neutral.

    Congrats on toughing it out so long with that stall. Must have been infuriating! So glad the scale is with you again!

    I didn't hear a specific number at all 😳 I'm not gaining 20lbs of anything... I can no longer carry an extra 5lbs of groceries in my hands from the car to the house... That's my incentive 😂

    Longest stall ever!

    Stalled since September/October & just went below my stall weight today. What a nice feeling! Sometimes these things can take a while. Weighed in at 246 this morning. 46 pounds to goal!

    Hi, new here! First post. I had my surgery on the 15th. My hospital only lets me eat soup or sugar-free soy-pudding for 2 weeks. I’m so looking forward to the purees. But for the first time tonight I felt hungry. Is this normal? Is this because my protein intake isn’t high enough? I feel like I can already eat so much (1/2C soup when they say 2 tbsp should make you full). I do feel tired and out of breath a lot. So maybe it’s al lack of variety in foods? I’m just worried about already stretching my pouch, even though I’ve never eaten until I was more than full. Ok done ranting :) Good luck to everybody here!!

  22. “Was the bypass harder to get used to? I also am revising from the sleeve because of a hiatal hernia and terrible acid reflux.“ That is the reason I got it done. And also as my sleeve was not stopping food quantities, but mostly because of the hernia/reflux issue. Bit early to say how it is going. I am only just over a week out of surgery and still on liquid/mushies. Since I went on the pre-operation diet, I’ve lost over 6 kgs (about 13.5 lbs). I guess I won’t know until I can start eating normal food. Trying to keep the protein up at the moment of course.

    I have a "would you rather' question

    I can eat and tolerate most things. I've only felt sick a couple times, however I have restriction so I can't eat that much. With that being said, I do think I could potentially graze and possibly that would impede my weight loss. It's a balancing act and I still have to work at it. Good luck to you!

    ***Qustions for Sleevers***

    I was told by my team that a 15/20 pound gain is a expected occurrence years out but, it won’t happen to everyone. Anyone else’ hear about the dreaded 15/20 pound gain?????
