  1. These are my absolute favorite. My husband makes them a few times a week. 2 eggs 1 large banana (or 1 1/2 small) That's it Whisk eggs mush in banana then whisk, til it looks like pancake batter. Cook on griddle or skillet. Yields 4 small pancakes which I am 6 months out almost and can only eat 1. So I'm eating a 1/2 an egg and 1/4 of a banana. They keep well in fridge in a zip lock bag over night. If they last that long. Hubby eats the other 3 most days.

  4. Honestly I think I have tried them all. Liquid shakes I can do like Atkins or premier but if it's powder even if I put it in the blender it won't stay down. I'm 15 months post op tomorrow. I can tolerate almost anything on plan now but those just don't work. Anyone else have this issue? It's not a flavor or taste thing it's the texture. Sent from my 5056N using BariatricPal mobile app

    Protein shake powder

    Thanks. I mean I get my protein in just wish I could take the powder add the water at work or gym and shake. $ wise they are less expensive too. Was wondering if others had the same problem Sent from my 5056N using BariatricPal mobile app

    What to eat

    What are you eating now? Also on a budget but since I don't eat a lot it's quality over quantity. Protein shakes for me are convienant with a price, but I can't drink the powder kind. I eat tuna pouches and eggs a good bit, yogurt. Fruit at times. I have found if I stick to healthy planned food I get full and stay full. Unhealthy snacks like crackers I could eat around my pouch if I wanted to. [emoji20] I'm 15 months post op tomorrow. Not where I want to be yet but like you gained about 5 lbs now loosing again. I had a coffee problem, I still do only now it's not loaded with as much bad stuff. Sent from my 5056N using BariatricPal mobile app

    I ate about 6 or 7 times a day. I still do about 5 at 15 months post op. But a meal is a yogurt or a tuna pouch, or an egg and 1/2 peice of fruit. Today Oatmeal 1 serving 31g or a little over an oz Coffee decaffeinated with Splenda Snack Nonfat yogurt 6oz Lunch Tuna pouch 2.6 oz Snack Cutie 5 almonds Dinner Egg skillet which is 1.5 egg scrambled 2 slices land o frost turkey Cup total chopped Spinach peppers onions tomato mushroom All sauteed together Will have a snack later depending on my blood sugar. It runs lows sometimes. Again I am way farther out than you but hopefully it helps. Sent from my 5056N using BariatricPal mobile app

  11. I'm 15 months post op tomorrow. Most days I still feel like me some days I don't recognize that woman in the mirror. Don't get me wrong I like me and don't regret it at all just sometimes I don't feel like me at all. Always a bigger girl and getting "noticed" more is a bit awkward.

  14. My sugar and the need for meds stopped when I did the 2 week pre op liquid diet had surgery Oct 3rd 16 so I'm a year 3month post op. Bs is great. I also had PCOS but had a hysterectomy about 3 months before so I'm not sure how much it would have helped. Fertility was one of my initial goal when I started my weight loss journey. I do feel my hormones are more regulated but it could be partial hyst, of by pass related. Sent from my 5056N using BariatricPal mobile app

    Husband is pissed

    I had surgery in October last year and married a wonderful man February....then things changed. Snide comments about my size and things. He has gained about what I lost too. It's about their image and insecurities. Nothing to do with you as a person. It is hard but it can be worked through if he is willing. Sent from my 5056N using BariatricPal mobile app
  17. I am over a year post op Oct 3rd 2016. Most things I can eat but I still have days I can't tolerate eggs, chicken, tuna, or broccoli. Some days anything is fine. Hope you feel better. Sent from my 5056N using BariatricPal mobile app

    How much can you eat?

    Around 5-7 weeks I went through an I could eat more than I thought I should phase then it was like my stomach woke up and said no. Sliders like soup yogurt liquids I can eat more but at 8 months out I can do about 3-4 protein 2-3 veggies. I have that 1 week a month where I feel constantly hungry regardless so I try stay more planned because I crave sweets, that I don't even want once I taste them
