  1. Hi all! I am having my surgery 10/2. I want to learn from actual DS patients. Any and all advice is welcomed. ❤️
  2. Thank you everyone! I needed this. I have been off track and just needed to go back to basics. I will consider getting therapy too.
  3. Hi all It's been a while but I feel so guilty and horrible about not using my tool early on to its full potential. I lost my way sometime around the holidays (surgery July 2015) and now feel like I lost the opportunity to really lose the weight. I've lost 50lbs since July and feel like it's not enough. My HW 291, SW 273, CW 224. I clearly have not made my goal and am having a hard time to refocus. What has worked for you all? Thanks for any support and encouraging words you can offer.
  4. Hi all! I am 2 months post op and have this red dot on my incision. It looks like a pimple almost. I don't feel pain or anything. Look at pic. Any ideas? I called my doc. Waiting to hear back.
  5. Thank you so much!! Will check it out.
  6. I am running out of "clothes I saved for when I am skinnny" lol So was wondering if anyone in NYC knew of second hand stores that carry a good selection. TIA
  7. I am also 6 weeks out and can eat about half cup of food. But what I do I measure my food and track everything I eat to stay within the limits my NUT set. I got a big scare at week 3 when I ate 1100 calories!!! You CAN reset yourself and not eat the 4oz of food. Just choose Protein rich low carb and low fat foods. Low fat has been hard for me, but working to get better. I have lost every week avg 4lbs... The least has been 1 lb at week 3. I am down 30lb since surgery. 48 since beginning of this journey in Jan. Let's do this and work our sleeve.
  8. I am 6 weeks out and I could eat 1100 Cals if I tried. I am satisfied with 700-800 mostly. I took some adjustment buy you need to change your expectations from feeling full to feeling satisfied. Also, it seems like you have a similar plan..... Solids after 3 weeks? I had that too and am just fine. Good luck and let us know how you are doing. Follow up So I spoke to my NUT today she said: I should be eating maximum of around 600-700.. Protein 40%, carbs 35%, fat 25%. 2oz of meat protein. I was probably eating highly calorie food so be mindful of portion size--2-4 oz generally is the goal per meal every 3 hours. I had the sleeve on July 17, I'm 33, 5'6, HW-291, SW-273, CW-247. Hope this is helpful for someone.
  9. Has anyone experienced feeling gassy and bloated 4 weeks post op? I had been feeling fine when all of a sudden BOOM I started feeling this way. When I get up from my seat it feels strain on my tummy, when drinking it's a little uncomfy not too much, and gassy. Oh and my tummy is bloated around the incision areas compared to yesterday morning. I starting noticing this uncomfortable feeling after my first low impact workout Wednesday night. FYI I called my doc and waiting on call. Thoughts?
  10. Yes all foods are in line with my NUT recommendations. I'm also hitting my Protein without shakes and Water levels. Yes I measure my food and log all ingredients on MFP when cooking. I have 2-4 oz of food (after cooking). It's a mystery to me!! I will def be calling her today! Thank you all for your comments and advice. I freaked out yesterday but realized that's why it's good to track your food and be mindful. This experience making me realize that I am growing and changing. It's ONE day but definitely won't become an everyday. I want to maximize my sleeve. I need to take this a step at a time! Thanks again!
  11. All foods are on the soft food list. This was the only time I ate that high. I usually range 600-800 max. I follow the 3 hour rule and the 2-4oz guideline. Fed talking to NUT. Thanks ladies!
  12. So...I had like 1100 calories today and am 3 1/2 week out. I'm like scared!!! I met my Protein goals but I think am eating too much fat and carbs (not carbs from bread, rice, etc. but from the actual food) How many calories were you eating by now? Will be calling my NUT tomorrow. Should I be scared? Am I messing up? Meal today: Breakfast: 1 egg, 1 slice cheese, 1 ham Snack: kiwi Lunch: 1 chicken sausage link from trader Joe with 1/2 c cooked squash. Snack: 2 Melba toast with 1oz bean, 2 oz guac, 2 thin slice turkey Dinner: 2 meatballs with tomato sauce and 1 mozz cheese 2% Snack: Greek yogurt As I write this I feel like HOLY ****!!!! I messed up didn't I??? Tell me your thoughts. GO
