    smallchange24 reacted to newmebithebypass in So my weight loss journey 6 months post op rny   
    So I will tell you a bit about me and my journey. I am a 27 almost 28 year old poly kink non-binary. Pansexual wife to a pansexual man of almost 5 years whom I've known my entire adult life. I've always been heavy. Both my parents had addictions. My mother passed away in January of this year due to a massive heart attack and the issues associated with that. My father was where I got the obesity from he's battled diabetes high blood pressure cholesterol for close to going on two decades now and had a stroke at 35. I when I was diagnosed with diabetes at 22 decided nope I wasn't going to be my grandma who had strokes and 13 heart attacks mind you she was a smoker. Or my father. I was going to beat this. So I took that nasty metformin. I asked and asked for anything better until about 3 years ago I was put on victoza. Mind you I started with a baseline a1c of 9.7 when diagnosed. This most recent trip to the endocrinologist my a1c was 5.1 so low that they are removing the diagnosis of diabetes out of my chart completely. So in September of 2015 I decided initially to persue gastric bypass. I would later around the time of the choosing of my surgery date begin to have a total psychotic break from reality. I had 4 trips to the psych unit in 1 year. And my marriage got very strained. I also got placed on SSDI disability because I lost the ability to fully function after a long two years of medical and mental battles I tried again this time in a much better place. I had been thru months of therapy I was stable on meds and in a great place. I had gastric bypass on August 28th 2018 I had a highest recorded weight of 311 I had started my program at 280 I had a weight the day of surgery of 274. My 6 month post op visit was Thursday of last week I weighed 210. I've lost over 100 pounds in a year.

    All the aches and pains will slowly go away and after a few months the metamorphosis will occur. Your pants will be falling off, the necks on tops will be slipping off your shoulder ( for the sexy new you). It’s a long road we are all traveling on. Eventually we’ll get there-no matter our age. Take heart, don’t be discouraged! Our journey to our big weight didn’t happen over night. Just one cupcake or cookie at a time!!
    Love to all those over 50’s out there you can do this!!

    I never asked my nutritionist.....I just assumed that if it was good enough for a baby, it was good enough for me....the portion size was perfect. But I would watch the sugar👍

    Yeah. What they said! I skipped over puree to soft foods per my doc. Lots of poached fish, canned fish/chicken, and soft boiled eggs/soft scrambled eggs, Grk yogurt, cottage cheese, blended Soups, mashed cauliflower, etc.

    I never pureed anything during the pureed stage. I ate cottage cheese, greek yogurt or skyr, lightly cooked scrambled eggs (overcooked eggs were hard for me to eat), creamed Soups and applesauce. I think I might have had some refried Beans, too. This is in addition to all of the full liquids, like: Protein Shakes, puddings, etc.
    To make it easier to get Protein in, I added a little Protein Powder to my yogurt/skyr and creamed soups. I still add a little protein powder to my morning skyr for Breakfast.
    You can totally get through the pureed stage without having to puree anything and without having to resort to baby food. BTW: I think I recall someone mentioned to me that I could do the baby food meats, but they were so gross that I decided that I could live a week or 2 without something that reminded me of cat food.

    I never ate baby food either. Lots of yogurt, cottage cheese, Protein Shakes. The only thing I puréed was canned peaches since I wasn’t allowed fresh fruit yet.
