    A normal day of food post op?

    I started my weight loss journey on 2/27/19.....my surgery was postponed due to the pandemic. Somehow I managed to lose 70 pounds before surgery. 1200 calories per day, exercise and working out with trainer. Since the surgery on 8/10, I have lost an additional 53 pounds. Very happy with my progress but I too am an overeater. I will have to watch what I eat for the rest of my life. I will also have to measure because I can overeat blueberries. So I make sure not to eat more than 4 to 5 ounces per meal. To my surprise, I am not hungry 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾.

    A normal day of food post op?

    I will be four months out on 12/10/20. My food choices are very limited because I am hesitant to try new things. Breakfast - Premier Protein Shake, Oikos Triple Zero Yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, orange, Wegman’s Bran Flakes, one scrambled egg, one turkey link sausage, sweet potato home fries, smoothies, coffee, fat free milk Lunch - string beans, kale, peas and carrots, tuna fish, salmon, Premier Protein Shake, Protein Bar, protein powder Dinner - mashed potato, sweet potato, collard greens, kale, string beans, salmon, sea bass, shrimp, crab legs, crab cake, pork ribeye I measure everything. I eat for the most part two or three small meals a day. No more than 5 ounces at each meal. I was able to have thanksgiving dinner with 5 ounces of food. I had leftover on Friday. So happy that I got through my first holiday. My calorie intake is about 700 per day sometimes less. But I feel great.
