    Meal help needed!

    Thanks! I actually would prefer the prepared food instead of making just because of my own time restraints so this is helpful!

    Meal help needed!

    What do you guys suggest for quick and easy dinners? I'm about 4 months out and single. I usually have a protein shake for breakfast and lunch but need ideas for an actual meal at home. I'm not a fantastic cook so the easier the better!

    What shampoo do you use?

    So I'm seeing that the hair loss is from lack of protein? Then where does the biotin vitamin come in? I average about,60g Protein per day and just started seeing some loss so started biotin.... Should I just be upping the protein instead?

    Frustrated in Kansas!

    understandable. I was done in Topeka at Tallgrass. Keep doing the right thing and trusting that this process will work...

    Frustrated in Kansas!

    I'm also from Kansas....where were you sleeved? I agree, the scale will make you nuts, but I understand the want to check and be validated. I've been walking 30 min a day since I'm still not allowed strenuous exercise and it has been helping.

    When does it get better?

    It was a full week before I thought, "yeah, this might not kill me" lol the first week is really rough. Hang in there, it DOES get better...even when it feels like it won't.

    I'm just straight sleeve, I never had the band. And yep, 1 month post op, but still feeling a lot of head hunger and wanting certain foods. Just was curious if any of their info would be helpful.
  9. Has anyone ever had any experience with this group? I am tossing around the idea of going to a meeting and was wondering if anybody had any comments about them?

    Help?

    I need some grounding help at the moment. I stopped at on the border on my way home from work. I got the chicken empanadas appetizer and got home and ate 2 (took me an hour but had 2) and now I feel incredibly guilty. I had been craving Mexican food so bad. I don't want to screw this up or stretch my pouch. One time eating too much won't permanently stretch it will it? Ugh this is hard stuff.

    How do you take pills!

    is it a problem swallowing them or do they make you sick if you swallow? Mine made me sick the first week that I was on Clear Liquids only. My Dr. prescribed zofran for nausea and then advised me to eat a popcicle...take the zofran about halfway thru the popsicle then wait about 15 min and take the pill. I was able to keep it down that way.
