  1. Past hour
  2. I’m 9 weeks out. I try to keep my calories in the 600-700 range but have gone in the 800s a couple of times a week. No problems with any foods, getting protein or getting fluids in. Typical menu for me would be a scrambled egg with tsp of butter for breakfast or protein coffee. Lunch is usually baby spinach, spring mix with 1 1/2 oz chicken breast strips topped with T sour cream and salsa. Dinner has lately been 1/3-1/2 c homemade chili beans or 2oz meat with broccoli or Brussels sprouts. At night I usually want a snack so I’ve had sf Greek yogurt, sf jello with a dollop of yogurt on top or some cheese and smokehouse almonds, but I can get carried away with the almonds so have pretty much cut them out. Often I’ll add a premier protein somewhere, but when I do my calories are closer to the 800 range. I am still having to resist the urge to graze, especially at night. I’m going to try doing the premier protein around 9pm to see if that will help with the grazing/snacking urge because it seems if I eat a snack it just starts up my “fat brain” and even though I’ve not had anything “bad” I can still slow weight loss with grazing on allowed foods.

    Pounds lost

    @sstirmer , I know I could have lost more, however I could not walk or work out due to pinched nerves in my lower back. I’m currently in the hospital for extremely low potassium levels. Been here since Tuesday. You all please ensure that you are getting all of your vitamins and supplements in

    April 2019 Surgeries!

    I was sleeved on the 9th and had a surprise hernia repair:) I weighed 242 at the dr office on my last visit Day of surgery 229 2 days after I came home I made the mistake of getting on the scale and it said 235, from all the fluids and such Weighed myself today and it said 221:) I am only able to wear sports bras and still very uncomfortable wearing pants so I am living the sweatpants life. My surgeon told me that I could go back to work Monday but my job won't let me back without a dr note UGH.. so I have to wait for my follow up on Weds. I am still on a liquid diet and can't go to thicker fluid until next week then a week after that I can finally go to mushy food and I have to stay on that for 6 weeks:( Best wishes to all:)

    February 2019 weight loss buds

    Sheribear you look amazing! You can definitely see it! I'm down another pound after my monthly stall and bounce around. I guess this is just the way my body is going to lose weight! Jeans are getting loose now - I had a NSV today and tried on the next size down and they fit.

    No weight loss

    I lost one more pound ..so in the past 2 weeks I've lost ONE pound. I cried at the doctors office, how embarrassing. My surgeon said that patients with revisions have a tendency to not lose as much as quickly as first time bariatric surgery patients. Our bodies are somewhat used to a lower calorie intake from the previous surgeries and it takes some time for our metabolism to kick back in. I hope that's the case.

    Bypass or Sleeve

    Bypass. I've had both and bypass is working much better for me. Much more restriction, no hunger.
  12. @MardellShakes are definitely not the way to go for a DSer. Yes, you can use them as supplements but not as your entire menu. Your best bet is to eat a ton of protein. Then drink a lot of liquid and limit carbs severely.
  13. Thanks for the advice!! It was not as bad as I thought.. from monday to today I was 1 pound under my starting weight!! Where did the weight go?!? Who cares!! My doc sent over his approval to insurance company so they can approve my surgery !! I'm excited!! Sent from my SM-G935T using BariatricPal mobile app

    I’ll get the coffee one done next time I go to Dunkins. Squats & crunches done.
  15. Today
  16. I take chewable vitamins I found on Amazon. I let them dissolve in my mouth and then swallow. This is working well for me.

    One Week Check UP

    yes normal, you gained water weight at the hospital from the IVs. No worries, you'll be now losing weight. Don't get discouraged in 3 weeks, when you experience your first stall. It's totally normal as well. :-) Good Luck.

    Pounds lost

    I had my sleeve 12/26/2018. Down 42 lbs. kinda slow compared to some, but it’s just where my dr said I should be. And besides that I feel GREAT!
  22. I had a ton of nausea and spitting up foam on the first day post-op, but by day 2 it was all just fine. I never had any pain or blood.

    Intermittent Fasting Daily Menu/Results/Accountability

    My bariatric doc believes in protein shakes. He tells his patients is you can tolerate them to just include them in your forever diet. He says that his most successful long term patients drink them and don’t over eat trying to get their daily allotment of protein. Sounds sensible to me! So easy to drink my lunch.

    Post surgery liquid diet

    I had no problems getting in my proteins and water post-op. I too have seen some people here say they had trouble getting in more than a couple of tablespoons, but I haven't had that trouble. I'm getting 600-800 calories/day now at 4 months post-op and have lost 50 pounds total.

    Soft foods ?

    It's common to stall at Week 4, so don't fret it. My soft food phase was cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, soups, sugar-free pudding, sugar-free popsicles.
  27. Have you experimented with different protein drinks? I use GNC 25 Leak Shake, chocolate flavor, pre-made and it's wonderful.
