    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    This^ I have been between the same 5 pounds for weeks now! Scales not really moving. Mind you I work out daily and I do a lot of strength training. Measurements are going down down down.

    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    Im Doing great and a lot better with water to be honest. This week I really started to work out and push myself to work out. I’m trying my hardest to stay off the scale because I seem to go between 5 pounds for the past 2 weeks which I’m assuming has to do with muscles. I’m feeling so good since I’m back to yoga and working out. Still can’t eat eggs and I’m finding it harder and harder to make meals because I still can’t have veggies and I’m so tired of the same old turkey meat or ham or soft chicken.

    Sounds like you are just like me! I’m almost at week 6. I won’t be able to do any soft veggies until next month. My nutritionist did say soft fruit is OK if you absolutely need it for BMs. That’s why I felt ok eating the strawberry. It’s the lack of carbs that’s the issue for me and carbs are healthy and good in moderation. As for the bms I take 2 stool softeners in the morning with my morning meds and a fiber chewable(they make sugar free ones) and I am regular every morning. And my program advises against straws but I need one to get my water intake in. I did a ton of research on them And the non use of straws is kind of a myth based on studies the straw doesn’t do much except very early on after surgery and it has to do with air and gas. Many people use them and are fine.

    Thank you! I tried just about everything so I decided to try to eat a strawberry since I haven’t had a carb in almost 2 months and that actually helped a lot. My program is not allowing fruits carbs or veggies yet. No way I’m gonna get fat from 2 small strawberries lol. And my stomach handled it way better than most foods.

    4 weeks and feeling hungry a lot

    No thigh pain other than when I was doing a lot of sitting the first few weeks. I would call your dr that could be electrolytes or something worse. As for purées I did a lot of egg salad and tuna. Now I’m on purée/soft foods and I’m trying to add more variety. Every program varies so much though on when you can have what foods. Here’s what a day of mine looks like. breakfast: protein shake lunch: 2-3 cups tuna poke snack light string cheese dinner Greek yogurt snack 1 cup ham cut up my daily calorie intake is anywhere from 5-700 calories I try to walk everyday the only pain I have is by my rib cage in my left side and that comes and goes. I’ve lost 20 lbs since surgery and 34 since preop diet.

    4 weeks and feeling hungry a lot

    I had surgery April 27 and I’ve been doing well no complications so far. Anyways I’m feeling hungry a lot more now but of course I still can’t eat very big portions(2-3oz at a time) I’m getting my Proteins in and my Water. I absolutely HATE the soft food diet and can’t wait to have real food. Anyways is eating 2-3 oz about 5-6x a day ok? I see my team on Wednesday but I’m just curious what everyone else is doing/did.
