    Has anyone ever thrown up this hard???

    Yup- used to happen to me at least once a week not anymore really

    Has anyone ever thrown up this hard???

    Yeah....similar and then I would burst blood vessels all over the sides of my face and chin. Now I have learned what to eat, how much, how to chew it, etc...but it was a huge learning process for me. take it easy - shakes, soft foods, etc for a few days.
  3. Does anyone else throw up blood when they vomit. I don’t vomit often anymore but when I do it’s not pleasant and I always end up spitting up phlegm with red blood in it. The harder it is to throw up (something stuck) the more blood. I also always end up bursting blood vessels in my face then too. So annoying. I asked about the blood at my last appointment two weeks ago and didn’t really get an answer. No other issues. Just curious if anyone else gets this....or has any experience with it.
  4. I’m down from a 7 to 6.5 and just bought a 6 in a pair of sneakers today.
  5. Yeah ...sorry. I can take my licks . I don't get offended like some. Sorry to waste ur time though. However, it's not like I eat junk all day- not even close. I may have a few crackers once a week or so but I KNOW I shouldn't.
  6. I think I know my issue but I don't want to admit it LOL carbs are easy to eat (crackers etc- even though i feel nauseous afterwards)- protein is hard to eat....voila- there is the issue. WHen i eat 100% on plan- weight falls off like it should. When I don't- it doesnt move. SIGH but I have to stay in the 600-800 range but that is actually pretty comfortable for me for a daily intake as long as I don't eat things I shouldn't eat anyway. Thanks again!
  7. This is really good advice. I just haven't lost much this month and I was hoping IF would help that. But if I am more diligent w/ my plan (getting protein in, eating regularly...etc) I bet it would be all I need to do.
  8. This is what I worry about. Last night for dinner i ate ONE shrimp...a little cauliflower risotto and a few bites of zoodles and was overly stuffed. Every meal with protein is like this. So I am going back to forcing myself to drink shakes to supplement again I am hoping it gets easier to eat protein.....sooner or later.

    I had surgery the day after you- i still lose some- but much less AND i have new hair growth- i definitely am too lax on my protein though and working really hard to get that up. I don't really take any extra supplements, just my regular vitamins. Luckily I had a lot of hair so it's really not super noticeable. It will stop- probably soon!!
  10. I am going to try this starting tomorrow
  11. Maybe I will try that......gah. and ya know. just discipline and refocus and continue weight loss and just overall health. It also seems like it would fit my day well and force me to be more disciplined which i need!

    Food Before and After Photos

    what did you season your salmon with- looks good!
  13. decaf what?! lol I am apparently "not allowed" black coffee- that used to be my go to- so now I have to use a little cream SIGHHHHHHHh. I bet I could drink black coffee again....it's been almost 7 months since surgery. but decaf is a huge no no no
  14. So you guys- do any of you drink coffee in the morning and then still wait to start you window of eating until later in the day? I was thinking I could probably do 16:8 but I have to have coffee in the morning or I cannot function.
  15. For me- when I drink right up until I eat, I am full pretty much right away....the more empty my pouch is, the more I can actually eat what I am supposed to. that being said- I drink most days all day except after and during eating because it's really just not possible or I get sick.

    Freakish Restriction???

    what fluffy said- the egg probably was just enough to make you feel sick (eggs are HARD for a lot of people - I didn't eat scrambled for at least 3 months because they make me sick)- egg salad is okay but still not a lot. And I also threw up a lot in the beginning- still occasionally and I have really good restriction and not a lot of hunger most days. Just drink water and let your pouch rest for a few days best of luck!
  17. I was able to eat vegetables at 2 mos post op but lettuce wasn't great for a bit. Now I still eat around the lettuce sometimes but I can tolerate it most days. Try one vegetable at a time ...peppers, cucumbers, etc - good luck
  18. I hate milk LOL but I will use some sort of cream or something- just not milk per say--- that is good to know. I need to plan my day out then. I don't really eat consistently or enough because I am not hungry and get full so fast but I need to do better. So maybe this will help So do you eat between noon-6pm? I just had a few bites of chicken salad so technically i could all of my meals within the next 6 hours and be fine. But I am stuffed at the moment. I could probably do OMAD but it wouldn't be enough food
  19. I think I am going to start IF now that I am 6 mos PO and I have one question-- I still drink a cup of coffee in the AM and I am still on my PPI -- I think I have to start weening myself off of that this month ...boo. It's like my security blanket for some reason. Anywho- what do you drink in the AM if you are doing IF- I am not supposed to have black coffee. I used to only drink coffee black but since surgery I have gotten used to a little SF creamer.

    Six months post-op+ : The Sophomores Thread

    I just realized I am 6 mos post op....by a few days now but wow....time flies LOL! This week I am going to join a gym...finally. I have been putting it off but now I know I must. Going to set up bi-monthly appointments with a trainer also to keep myself motivated. Also signed up for a 5k and going to shoot for a 1/2 marathon next spring- so that will give me motivation and lots of time to prepare!

    Drinking strategy

    Ask for a tall glass of water with just ONE shot of vodka in it. add lime/lemon- lots. And You can ask for a glass of water also and add more water as you drink.

    Spicy food

    Go slow on the spice, plus not having a drink while you eat could also be troublesome even if you have a high tolerance for spices. I love spice but still don't go crazy with it.
  23. Watermelon seems to make me sick...I feel sick and once I had to throw it up. I have had it three or four times. Each time I felt a little nauseous and the one time I ate a lot was when I got sick. So sadly, watermelon is now off of my list for a bit. Bananas also make me feel blek- I only know cuz I Have made a few smoothies with banana and can't drink too much. Berries are fine and that is the only fruit I really will eat and it's not that often. You are still pretty early post op, so that could be why.
  24. Same....6ish weeks. I hate going out to eat with my family but I don't mind it with friends. Mostly because my friends talk a lot more and with my husband we sort of just sit there LOL
