    I cried

    It just takes a while for you to get used to having something in the stomach. I couldnt each much at all the first few months. Now, a year and a half later i can eat about 6 wings. Cant say much about the hair since mine was gone long before surgery.
  3. Im with you on this. Im about 1.5 years out. I eat pretty much whatever i want, Ijust dont eat a lot of it. And I usually have some kind of dense protein at the center of most meals. But its not unusual for me to have potatoes, or a slice of pizza every now and then. Ive found that as long as i am excercising i can keep my weight steady now by just eating multiple small meals - even if i have some cheat foods in there. Or even GASP BEER!

    I tried a diet coke today...

    HAHA! I was walking around Berlin a few years ago checking out the sights, and i stopped at a small convenience mart near the city center and ask for a bottle of water. The lady behind the window asked me if i wanted "still" or "fizzy" (I think it was fizzy). I couldnt really understand because of the accent. She could obviously tell I was a dumb American who didnt understand, so then she said "You vant zee bubbles or not zee bubbles". I said OOHHHHHHHH!!! No bubbles please!

    Eh... i asked my surgeon about alcohol and carbonation post op and she told me you have to live your life. If you think you will never have anything sinful you’re just setting yourself up for failure. She also said carbonation is fine for some and hard to tolerate for others, but it’s not harmful to your pouch. She said there is a lot of misinformation out there on the topic, many times used as scare tactics to keep people from drinking full sugar soda.

    I drink beer wine and bourbon and no problems and no regrets. I exercise a lot to make up for it n
  8. Don’t sweat it. I’m a year and 4 months out and I can eat whatever I want, just significantly less than before. Drink your water and do the work and slowly you’ll be able to eat something besides the bland first few stages. But it does suck for the first three months.

    Try sprouts veggie chocolate protein with skim milk and crushed ice in a blender, (or orgain or vega protein) Not so cloyingly ssweet and that combo can get you 30-40g per pop. Sometime i mix cold brew coffee in too.

    Eating is a hassle

    It will get better but the first few months can be tough. Just have to push through it because if you dont get something in you, then you will totally crash and have no energy.
