    Any suggestions 1 month post op

    It's normal that you are tired right now. Bariatric choice has vitamin capsules that might work for you. They don't have that nasty vitaminsy smell and I find them quite easy to swallow. I've been swallowing Actigal since 1 week out and it is about the same size as these vitamins.
  5. I'm lots older than you, was 50 pounds heavier and the same height. I was insulin dependant. I am 7 months out, down 89 pounds and was taken off all diabetes medications including insulin when I started my 2 week pre surgery diet. I'm still insulin free and my A1c is normal and my glucose readings are stable throughout the day. I love what the sleeve is doing for me. Hope this helps and wishing you well with whichever surgery you choose.

    No excuses. Just need help.

    You can do this. You are making all the right commitments. Just do it today. Think about tomorrow tomorrow. And most importantly remember that what you put into your mouth may make you happy or sad but it DOES NOT make you a good person or bad person. Sending good thoughts your way along with a cyber hug.

    Great job, Mary. Can't wait til I can post some of my own. People like you motivate people like me to stay the course.
  8. You have done an amazing job. I'm truly happy for your success and thankful that you shared your story With us. It's stories like this that keep me on the straight and narrow. Only wish this surgery was around when I was younger! But I'm 7 months out now and about 70% of the way to goal-- so better late than never. Again thanks for taking the time to write all that down. Inspirational!

    Nurtrition Goals

    Our guidelines were 60+ grams of Protein, less than 30 grams of fat and 30 - 60 grams of carbs. The calorie count was limited to 700 for the first 6 months then increased to 850. This all started only after we progressed to soft foods. A word of caution-- always follow your program's directons. Hope this helps.
  11. You've done a great job! Keep up the good work.
  12. Terrific job. This is very encouraging to hear.
