  1. I use Michael Silverstein's Keto butter pound cake recipe. The recipe for the keto rum cake is from a keto baking book. I got them both on Amazon. I could tolerate some of the butter pound cake (like a tbsp at a time, but not the rum cake at all).
  2. I am still not able to eat veggies, but I can tolerate some fruit. I think it may be a sleeve/bypass thing. My doctor did tell to avoid a lot of fiber.
  3. It is weird for me. I can almost eat anything, just in super small amounts. I had turkey, yam and potatoes (about 1 tbsp of each) and even a bit of pecan pie without the crust. However, I made a keto rum cake to take with me, and I took a small taste of that the day before. I was trying out the recipe. I got the foamies for the first time, from just a small taste. At this point I think my stomach just has a mind of its own and I just have to listen. Most days I just eat eggs, tuna fish, protein shakes, protein water. I had a meatball for dinner yesterday.
  4. I am on week six and can have a few crackers now. I did just have my first really bad episode with food though. We made this soup with polish sausage and I chewed, chewed, chewed. Well, that night and the next day were brutal. I am doing well today. I can only have very small amounts of things but I am getting to the point where a lot is tolerated. Chicken, beef, eggs, no problem.
  5. I understand what you are going through. My original surgery date was Aug 1st. I was on the table and they cancelled it because they were afraid of a med complication. They changed it to Sept. 8th and then right before changed it again to the 12th. I had to change meds and let the other ones out of my system. They were worried about C-diff. Even after my surgery, I was scared based on the things they told me. It was hard at the time, but I am glad it finally happened. Your situation is so unique. Kind of cool. I know it probably doesn't feel that way. I cried for a while after I got home. The pain meds didn't help. Everything is good now. I figure better safe than sorry. (((hugs)))
  6. I am five weeks, in a stall and lost 30 as well We got this.
  7. You are a pretty low weight so your journey may be a bit slower. In some ways the slower journey is better because you may not have as much skin.
  8. Glad it is going well. Doing okay. I seem to have hit a stall this week, but I also started doing workouts this week. Hoping I will bump over this hump. I have monkfruit sweetner, may have to give it a try. My biggest issue is water right now. No issues with the protein. Jennifer
  9. I use a Vitamin B12 patch and collagen patch each day and I am going to try the sleep patches next. I just need to get on a schedule. I'm glad you are finding something that works for you.
  10. You took the words out of my mouth. Having a week 5 stall.
  11. I'm happy to hear you are getting some answers. I did hear that hernias can come back. They actually found I had an umbilical hernia, not hiatal on the operating room table. I had a hole in my stomach (they actually pulled my stomach out of it, and I only have four scars. Weird stuff happens. I use a sleep apnea machine too. It can help but it is hard to get used to. Here is to more answers for you.

    Sounds like you are doing great. I had my meeting on Friday too. I am down 30, they want me to do South Beach again but they said I can do low carb as well. I started exercising today actually but I am having those fall asleep tired moments still too. I am averaging about 7-900 calories. Protein and vitamins are good but water is something I am still struggling with.
  13. I had my four-week visit today and I am down 30 lbs. I am just so astonished. It took me a year to lose the first 30. This is not easy but so glad I did it. I went to IHOP with my littlest guy tonight and husband and had about tbsp of an egg white omelet. I am doing super well with the foods. My only slight issue is I am still tired all the time. I am vitamining up like crazy (new word?). I have not started exercising yet but I got permission to start to do body groove tomorrow. Here is hoping the next 30 comes easily. Hoping for all of your success.

    I still haven't vomited but I will have gerd like symptoms if i am not careful. I don't think I can eat 2 eggs regularly. I can pretty much eat anything now as long as it is soft, and I chew a lot. I am a little over four weeks.
  15. Some of the ladies with thyroid issues and PCOS have really struggled. Don't give up, it won't help. Give yourself time. At six months if you haven't lost more, I would be worried but maybe stop looking at the scale for a while. There are so many factors that can go in with weight. Hugs friend, I know this must feel defeating.
