  1. I had regrets. Big regrets. I hated, hated, hated what I had done for about 14 days after surgery. I think it is because you litteraly change your whole world in an hour when you have WLS. When things calmed down and I was able to digest something else but liquids I came to accept it. I think this recuring issue of "it doesn't work/I loose so little" has to do with that we all had a lifetime of failures, thinking that OUR body is much different than everyone elses body. So we automatically set us up mentally for failure, and when we feel that (or see on the scale) that nothing happens, there we go again telling ourselves that, yep - my body failed me again. There is no outline for me. I cannot relate to this actually situation as I didn't weight myself for the first 3 months. But I had a stall around 3 months. It was utter hell, and I thought I ruined it - but what I failed to see was my body changing and just not on the scale. I know most of us except fat to just disapear after surgery. I had somewhat the same thoughts. They say that I should take about a year ++ to loose 70-80% of your excess weight. Naturally, if you are 300kgs you will loose a lot more weight in the same time than if you are 100kgs at the time of your surgery. That also goes for weightloss without surgery. You have lost like 3 pounds a week. It is a lot. Our bodies work different but at the same at the accurate same way as everyone elses. Stalls will come, you will see weeks without changes on the scale. Probably several times during the journey. Sometimes you might even see that the scale increases. Water retention is a b***h. Rembember to keep your eye on the price, but also on measurings tapes and pictures, not the scale.
  2. Raw carrots can be hard on many wls patients, mainly because they are not chewed well and clumps up in the intestines. Cooked is much easier because the fibers are more easily digested. Broccoli turns to these little flakes and 3 months out might be to soon for your intestines to process. It is impossible to give a straight answer on this one, as we are all individuals on this. Start out with seedless, non-flaky ones and just try on.
  3. Add berries, fruit or cucumber in your water. Fill a pitcher or a hydroflask and leave in the fridge. There are seeds in berries and might be hard on you, so you can also strain the water. 1 drop of stevia should be enough for 0,5l. You just need to taste it to your liking. You might not like sweet things atm.
  4. Dinner at grandmas, who doesn't know about surgery. I lucked out 😍 Cod with rustic vegetables, halv a potato and real butter. One can't have a bari-friendly plate at grandmas, so I ate to full and moved it around. Now she's is complaining about me not eating and I am to skinny, so she wipped up some waffles.
  5. Tomorrow I am going shopping, and as I have "eaten out of the freezer" so I don't have any prepped and packed meals no more, I am going to have to make some food so I have something to casually take out and eat. So I am highjacking this tread, if anyone wants to help me come up with some meals I can keep or freeze to restock my go-to meals.

    I feel really stupid

    Yep, I have. But I don't eat. Well, I eat 500 kcals on sorts. Blood pressure is low, Vit D low, vit B starting to get low etc. GP said maybe it is just the body adjusting to all things new. My surgeon had me go throw gastroscopy, So just make sure to make them take tests, and then start on your vitamin regiment. Could also be COVID19 off course, but let's not make a big deal before one knows for sure.

    Juicing

    I just gonna copy this from another tread I just replied in. Not sure if there is a need to speed anything up, as I don't have your stats. I think this recuring post has to do with that we all had a lifetime of failures, thinking that OUR body is much different than everyone elses body. So we automatically set us up mentally for failure, and when we feel that (or see on the scale) that nothing happens, there we go again telling ourselves that, yep - my body failed me again.

It was utter hell, and I thought I ruined it - but what I failed to see was my body changing and just not on the scale. I didn't see the big picture until my surgeons coordinator pointed out after me complaining a little about "only loosing 20kg" in 10 weeks, that that is in fact 2kgs a week, which is a lot. I know most of us except fat to just disapear after surgery. I had somewhat the same thoughts. At 7 months out, I have lost a lot, a lot more than what they excepted to begin with. My point was here to be, that if I see my total weightloss, I might see it as "it should be more", at the same time my average weightloss is about 1,6kgs pr week. They say that I should take about a year ++ to loose 70-80% of your excess weight. Naturally, if you are 300kgs you will loose a lot more weight in the same time than if you are 100kgs at the time of your surgery. That also goes for weightloss without surgery.

Sometimes you might even see that the scale increases. Water retention is a b***h. So is beeing a female and all our hormones. I remember once many years ago, I gained 10kgs litteraly over night due to my cycle. No wonder we feel extra fat when Aunt Flow comes around 😂 Rembember to keep your eye on the price, but also on measurings tapes and pictures, not the scale. Quote Edit

    It's going slow

  9. It is common for hair to fall of aftter surgery That you can't do perticularly much about. No vitamins and shampoos are gonna help with that. But you said clump? Did you lose it all i patches or one spot? Just make sure to have GP take some blodtest to make sure there is no underlying reason.
  10. Follow this as my stomach has begun to do this again after a few months of beeing silent
  11. I did stress eat before surgery. The mindset is still somewhat present, but in a much lesser way. I used to excuse a ruff day for a candy bar, or when on my period, or tired. Yes, I could make up excuses for anything to buy fast foods and chocolate and cookies. I have tried this, but it doesn't give me anything now. I just prefer to eat some veggies or something. I bought a packet of crisps last weekend, and ended up throwing it away after 2 chips.
  12. Keep in mind that fluids in (some) food also counts as fluid so it doesn't mean 64oz of clear water

    Constipation

    Dr Kaur said I probably would not go until thursday or friday, my op was on tuesday, so I didn't bother to make an issue of it. But I must admit, that it feelt like it played some peekaboo back there for around a day 😂

    Constipation

    I saw a video on this. They added prunes in smoothies, beans can be eaten on soft, so can banana if one can eat it. Prunes and bananas might be to sugary atm, but beans and perhaps nuts can be eaten. Also dark veggies in smoothies etc. Also, to all of you, I admire those of you that can go weeks without going (it is actually kind of dangerous, so please seek medical help if nothing happens the first week. This is actually an acute situation, so were medical resources are low, this will go higher up in the food chain because you can have critical situations if poo gets a leak). I went from monday day before surgery to friday same week, and I couldn't cope with it. When I went it was some of the best feeling in the world. I used an enema though.
  15. Just a protein cauliflower fish soup with frozen veggies Broken rule 1 and 2 in the last few days, no soup and no smoothies 😂

    Tastebuds change

    Canned fruits are usually in sugar. Just eat real fruit, wash it down before use. There is no evidence that you can catch it thru food.
  17. Question to all the vets out here, because we need to talk about this whole bony butt thing. Or bone maybe is not the right word - maybe it is muscle along with bone on a surface with little fat?🤷‍♂️ Does it ever get better? Because I can't sit on hard surfaces😂 I was on the floor doing some yoga and tried to turn around, and it was utter pain to move over on the butt. I almost gave up, screamed through it and scared my dogs shitless because of the moaning, cursing and screaming. Sometimes it is like sitting on a spiked foam roller. I want to move all fat on the frontside to the trunk!
  18. Yes, I had that. The skin was more painful than the inscions. I had almost open wounds after the glue on the plasters. Even to this day I can still see the outline of the tape around my inscions.

    Tastebuds change

    With 2 months out there are still some guidelines for you to follow, so listen to your surgeon and his or her diets. I eat lots of fruit. By lots I mean 1-2 pr day. Mostly appels and banans. Oranges I keep to a minimum because I can't contain myself, and I eat them if I have them, and I don't want to damage my teeth with the acid of constantly eating oranges. Pears my stomach can't handle, grapes I have to eat without the skin. Plums are a no-go. Also I eat lots of berries. Orange can be hard on your stomach because it is has these "strings". If you want to eat it Chew it well so you avoid that. Also, fresh fruit are better than many other things. The tastebuds often change after surgery. Sometimes smells often change to. Rarely one gets both - and I got both😂 I haven't gotten a good explanation for this other than it is change in gut hormones.

    Hair loss

    The biotin won't help with the hair loss. Your hair grows in cycles, and the hair you are losing now is hair that falls off without new hair growing out. No amount of vitamins will stop shedding, but might make new hair stronger. In 1-3 months This hair loss is a stress response to the weight loss. Your hair is at the bottom of the food chain in the body, so when it has this sort of stress, it responds by prioritizing were to send the energy. This is called telogen effluvium.
  21. I ordered a padded tights to see if it helps. I think the donuts and such are even harder to sit on, and feels weird.
  22. You are not sitting directly on your glutes while biking. I don't know about your anatomy, but my bike seat is more "between" the ass and a little more to the front, so when I bike, it is not the same thing as putting the ass on a wooden chair🤣
  23. I bike to. I has gotten gradually more hard to sit. But on a bike seat a lot of the pressure is not directly on the glutes, but a little further in between your legs,
