  1. Protein is so important to hit your numbers for weight loss. Are you exercising? If so you may need to increase your calories.

    August Sleevers-How are you doing??

    I hit 140lbs lost today, 74 since my surgery August 8, 2017. I stalled for about 4 months but last week added some carbs to my diet and upped my calories a bit and I started to lose again -- almost two pounds this week already. I think the amount of exercise I am doing was putting me in starvation mode with the low carb diet I've been following. I'm having a few issues, can't eat meat or dense foods like broccoli without pain, still have chronic constipation. I'm getting scoped, Upper GI and Colonoscopy in a week or so to see if there is anything wrong or if it's just my tummy is a slow healer. I also have been having hypoglycemic (extremely low blood sugar) episodes if I eat sugar, which thankfully I don't do very often. Despite those few bumps in the road, I'm very happy with how things are turning out. I have more energy than I've ever had. I'm feeling wonderful and couldn't be more pleased with the reduction in pain in my back, which is why I opted for surgery in the first place.

  3. LOL, yeah that's in there too but it's got its own paragraph.
  4. Thanks everyone! This all makes sense.
  5. I saw "no bread, no rice, no potatoes" in my surgeon's handbook but there was never an explanation for why. So I just assumed it meant every "kind" of bread product.
  6. I am three months post op, in an effort to eat less meat I bought some Field Roast patties. I just read the label and realize they are made from Vital Wheat Gluten. I'm not supposed to eat bread products and I assume it's the wheat or gluten in it that's not good for the Sleeved tummy. Would eating these be the same as eating a bread product?

    August 14 peeps

    I'm down 36lbs since my August 8th surgery. I was stalled for a VERY long time. I started a very strict Bariatric Keto diet plan this past week and I've lost 5lbs in the last 4 days. No more than 20g of carb, moderate fat and protein. Hw: 315 SW: 248 CW: 212 GW: 150
  8. Went on a trip of a lifetime and was miserable most of the time because my feet hurt and I couldn't keep up to doing everything I wanted.

    Leaving dieting behind

    I feel like this. I am 12 weeks post op (sleeve) I've lost only 28lbs. I'm ALWAYS worried about what to eat, when to eat it, how to eat it etc. It's making me stressed and very unhappy. The worst part is I've barely lost 5 lbs in the last EIGHT weeks. So all the stress and worry isn't even working for me. I'm tired of it.
  10. I've been the same weight since week 4, now at week 8. Beyond frustrated.
  11. I use feramax powder, 1/4 teaspoon in some liquid and it's grape flavoured. No burping so far.
  12. When my Nut found out that I was swimming three times a week she said I needed "more" carbs and put my number at 50-70 (for my average 800 calories a day).
