    kellym1220 got a reaction from Lanie992 in Low carb bread?   
    Aldi has a zero carb bread...it's the holy grail. This cracked me up...they're selling them on Ebay for $17.99 plus $16.00 shipping!! (They go for about $2.50 at Aldi's!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from bufbills in How many days did it take you to feel ok?   
    On day four, I felt okay to move around and work about a half day. Then every day got better after that.

    Good luck!! I hope you have an easy, breezy surgery! Don't worry about puree stage...refried Beans are a life saver! Also, my nutritionist said as long as you chew, chew, chew anything is a puree! LOL So I wouldn't eat steak or anything, but tuna fish and chicken salad made with greek yogurt and mashed well with a fork worked for me.
    YOU CAN DO THIS!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from bufbills in Please Help - Giving Up the Good Food   
    I agree. If you tell yourself "I can never have _______" again, you will probably want it MORE! I went to dinner with my sister, and while I did not let them leave the bread basket (luckily she is also on a diet), I did have two amazing bites of cheesecake...and that was enough! I brought the rest home and told my son "Eat it or throw it away!" so I wouldn't be tempted. I know that I can't keep those things in my house, but if I'm out, then I will indulge (a little!).

    kellym1220 got a reaction from Arabesque in Feeling so hungry today   
    I was also told that stomach acid will mimic hunger...so if you were prescribed an antacid, take it, even if you don't feel like you have "heartburn" or acid reflux. Good luck!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from JoanneLaRusch in Am i gonna puke all the time??   
    I only vomited once...due to eating eggs at about two weeks out. I was able to eat eggs at 6 weeks out with no issue, but that was the ONLY time I threw up.

    I had these last night with some salsa and YUM! The regular chips don't do much for me, but these were really food! I'm going to try and make nachos with them!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from sbmcg in Long stall only 4 weeks after surgery   
    Stalls are common...and frustrating! I keep having stalls, some short, some long, but eventually the weight DOES come off! Also, pay attention to how you look and feel. I have found that the changes in appearance seem to be most noticeable when I am not actually losing weight (as strange as that sounds!). I have slowed to about 10 pounds per month after the first month, but I'm half way to goal and as long as it keeps coming off, I am happy!
    Good luck!!!

    I'm sure I don't have to ask this, but have you contacted your surgeon? That is not normal recovery and you need to stay hydrated. Please call them if you haven't!

    kellym1220 got a reaction from xoxoMeli in Skipping Purees   
    My nutritionist said that if you "chew, chew, chew, chew, chew" you are pureeing the food in your mouth. I have a REALLY hard time chewing my food thoroughly, i have always wolfed down my food. I haven't had an issue, thank goodness!
    But I agree with the above poster, try Beans, eggs, yogurt, Soup, pudding. If you do like pudding, add some GENEPRO or any powdered Protein, or make it with a Protein Shake to up it's protein.
    Good luck!
