    Eating too much too soon?

    I had the same thing... the first week or two I didn't get nauseous, or feel over full, I could eat anything as long as i chewed it to pulp and only had something get stuck once. However, I portioned every bit of food out because I was afraid to overeat and bust my staples. Now, three weeks out, I have started getting nauseous when I eat greasy foods. I eat sugar (imitation sugar gives me migraines), but i have not eaten the unhealthy sugars (like candy), only things like yogurt, popsicles and instant oatmeal. I am still watching portions carefully. fear does wonders. Jennifer

    Protein Powders/Supplements

    unjury has a viariety sample pack, 2 each of 5 flavors for about 24 bucks. MuscleMilk will send you a sample if you email requesting it. Insure will give you $3 coupon for proving your information, and i think they are emailing more offers. I know there are others... and one of the discussions on this site has a more complete list, a quick search should pull it up. But companies want you to try their products... all you have to do is ask. Jennifer

    Yes. I went a few days without going and when I tried to go it was too big. Ouch. Next time I will be taking a stool softener before I get to that point again.
  6. After you cut back on carbs... did your stall finally end? Details. How long were you stalled? How far out from surgery were you? Jennifer

    I don't know how to "message" you except for this way (I'm new to BP), unless this is what you mean by message you. I had surgery on Monday (June 30) so I just got in under the wire. Anyway, please invite me. Should I send you my F'book email "publicly" like this? Please let me know. Thanks so much. I'm really eager to join the FB group! I sent you a private message... at the top tight of the bariatric pal website there should be a mail icon. click it and it should open the list of mail you have received. Let me know if you have any questions. writerjennifer

    Pouch test

    Did your doctor actually tell you to stay under 600 calories a day? A lot of people find that when they aren't getting enough calories their body goes into starvation mode and refuses to let go of even one pound. You might want to check with your nut or the doctors office.

    showering - how long

    I was told it's ok to shower, but no baths or jacuzzi until after the incisions are completely healed. Jennifer

    I sent you an message...
  12. I have HMR shakes, and they are pretty good. My Surgeons office sells the Bariatric Advantage too... but I wasn't 'required' to get them.

    How long is too long?

    My nut had me on shakes with one healthy frozen dinner and veggies for months before surgery... Does your doc require you to lose some weight before surgery? Also, going on liquid, or modified liquid like mine, helped me to adjust to the post-surgery requirements. Good luck!
  14. The only time I have been nauseous is when I ate too much. I would suggest you review your surgeon's recommendations and make sure you're not pushing the shakes to fast. Good luck!

    Chewable calcium citrate

    Oh hell yes! I got a bottle of the chocolate flavored calcium chewable tablets. I think they are Bariatric Advantage. Disgusting! And they have fake sugar in them. That stuff gives me migraines. I did like the lemon calcium chew, but it's only like 150mg of calcium so I would have to eat 10 of them. I was never big on candy, and now I can't imagine how long it would take me to eat 10 of them, on top of all the other Vitamins and Protein shakes and meals. Insane. Jennifer
