    O.T.R. sleever got a reaction from hopeful one in New guy here, you've GOT to read this!   
    Hey Frank,
    Thanks for sharing, glad to hear your surgery was so uneventful. Unfortunately those of us that had no problems just don't say it enough. But honestly most surguries go quite well. It might be time to revive the "good recovery" thread.

    I still remember my first post in this forum.it was something like,
    Is this too easy? I'm really afraid since this is causing me no real adversity that I am going to fail at this.
    Needless to say, I'm almost 11 weeks out & it is definately working, and I'm not a failure. I haven't had any real issues yet.

    Ha ha , I don think I've been called a breeder in at least 15 years.
    And unfortunately I can understand the heart breaking thing. When I was younger I use to party at the San Antonio Mining Co. in El Paso, TX just because I new I'd never have to pay for any of my own drinks.

    Great information. Also make sure you are using a high quality source of Protein.
    If you are taking 2 hours to consume the 40 grams then you are still likely using most of the Protein. Protein slows the digestive process, so it stays in your intestine longer.

    You'll be fine at 20-25 in an hour. It will actually digest over several hours. Just don't go for any more at 1 shot.

    IMO,
    At this point you shouldn't be eating anything. Hydration is your first priority. Many people don't even add Protein Drinks for the first couple weeks. Sip sip sip till you reach your first goal (usually 1/2 gal in a day), then add some Protein Shakes. Your not going to put yourself at risk of malnutrition anytime soon. But dehydration will land you in the hospital

    O.T.R. sleever got a reaction from DarbiMolly in Examples Of Slider Foods   
    Most slider foods are pretty easy to tell. First off sliders are high calorie/carb
    If it melts or turns into a liquid while eating (ice cream, Jello, popcorn)
    If you smash it up and find that it takes up very little space ( potato chips cheese doodles)
    It's really kind of amazing. Take a bag of Cheetos and put them in a blender then measure them. You'll completely understand why you can eat so many of them.(this works for chips too).

    Are you sure you haven't dropped a size or 2? I can tell you, pre-op I was cramming myself into a 44" waist pants I probably should been wearing 46 or even 48. So it took a while for my pants to start falling off
    Either way I bet you are losing a lot faster than you gained, I'll also bet those pants are a lot easier to button.

    Actually, you are right on schedule. Though stalls are different for all of us, somewhere in the 3rd to 4th week is where most experience their first. With your pre-op losses I wouldn't have been surprised at all if you'd stalled at any point. I've even seen cases where people have stalled immediately following surgery.
    Just keep following your plan & everything will work like it is supposed to.
    And congrats on the 56lb loss. You are well on your way!!!

    Check out Quest nutrition, or Premier nutrition.
    Premier can be found @ Sams club, Walmart, & costco. I've always bought Quest online.
    Word of warning, there is really no such thing as a good Protein bar. They are nice for occasional use when you just don't have the time to stop & eat healthy, but ultimately they are all glorified candy bars.

    O.T.R. sleever got a reaction from OCT2011-IRL in My confession. I fell of the wagon   
    Wow, do I really not want to admit this. But, I did it, I had a relapse.
    For a few weeks I was eating candy and ice cream on a daily basis. Somewhere in the area of 2000 calories a day worth of candy bars & ice cream. That's plus my salads and Proteins.
    I'm really ashamed of myself, not because I had relapse, that's just part of life for an addict. We are really good at justifying our addictions and tripping ourselves up. My shame comes from the fact that I let my pride get I the way of my recovery. I should have come here and told my sleeve family when I realized it was a problem. I knew it was a problem less than 1 week into it, but I couldn't bring myself to admitting it to you.
    About a week ago I got on the scale & had gained back 7-8lbs. I was so disappointed in myself. I am back on a very strict diet, let me assure you getting back on track is much harder when you don't have a fresh staple line to scare you into following the rules.
    The total disgust I felt looking at that number on he scale was enough to put me back on the straight and narrow.
    But let me tell you from experience, stay mindful of what you eat. There have always been 2 schools of thought on eating post VSG, the "what's best" & the "what's acceptable". This experience has assured me even more the I belong in the "what's best" crowd. I really need to focus on my health because "acceptable" for me quickly turns into overindulgence.
    I feel I need to apologize to you, my sleeve family for not being open about this when it happened.
