    Constipation

    I drank a Diet Mountain Dew and it worked great without the sugar!

    Contempt

    Yet my insurance doesn't cover weight loss surgery for anyone at all period! I think that's so ridiculously stupid since so many health problems stem from obesity!!

    2 months out and 30 pounds lost! I did gain a few pounds back after testing bread so no more bread! It didn't even taste good and the texture was kinda gross! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Hormel 60 second meal

    A simple rule of thumb when choosing anything is to make sure the protein content is greater than the carbs content. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    3 weeks post op

    I barely had the energy to shampoo my hair and had to take a break and sit on the shower floor before I could finish!! Your energy will come back just be patient, drink your water, get your protein in, and exercise as much as you can. If I can hang in there and exercise for at least 5 minutes my body warms up and it gets easier, so push yourself a little more while listening carefully to your body of course!

    Constipation

    I have horrible constipation when I don't drink at least 64 ounces of water! I wanted to try Water before resorting to pills or any other stuff and water worked wonderfully! Also, and I know this may sound weird or be a TMI thing, but putting a foot up on the toilet seat and hugging my knee to my chest helped immensely! Something to do with our bodies are not built to fully relieve the contents of our bowels in a sitting position, but rather in a squatting position. It really helps so it's not so painful and straining. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Not losing much

    Bananas also have a lot of sugar. If you don't get your protein in, your going to burn muscle instead of fat. If I don't get all my water in I get terribly constipated. High protein, low sugar and carbs, and 64 ounces of water. I promise if you follow that you will start dropping weight in a few days, but no cheating! Just advice based on my own trial and errors as you have to test the waters and get to know your body all over again! Also stay away from bread- there's nothing in there good for you anymore, you don't need it, and it contains too many carbs. It makes me put on a couple pounds even if I have just a few bites because it throws my body out of weight loss mode! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Dry mouth

    You have got to try hard to get your 64 ozs of water in or you will get dehydrated!! My eyes and face start to get really dry and itchy if I don't drink enough water. I am almost 3 months out and I can easily drink all of my water now. Most of the struggle is establishing brand new habits, but once I did everything got much easier!

  10. Same thing with me and I'm almost 2 months out! Just be patient, I think it's our bodies way of readjusting and healing. I'm confident the weight will start coming off again as my extensive research points in this exact path! We're doing everything right and our bodies are going to get with the program really soon!

  11. I am now 1 month+ post op and wondering if I'll ever be able to eat at least close to normal again. I know the portions will be much less, but what are the Bypass Veterans eating? Can they eat lightly fried foods, noodles, sweets, chips, bread, etc. I'm not planning on eating them on a regular basis after going through all this, and I refuse to gain weight back. I would just like to know if I can have a little treat every now and then without getting sick! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    16 days post op and down 16lbs. It's slowing down as I'm leveling out but I'm feeling so much stronger and I'm eating yogurt, tuna fish, salmon, low fat cottage cheese, and high Protein meatless burritos with a flaxseed tortilla now. food is good but I'm still drinking my shakes because they make my Vitamins and protein intake easier. Shakes make sure I'm taking the food introduction and intake slowly as well. I want to get to know my new pouch nice and easy as the thought of throwing up or dumping horrifies me greatly!!
