I voted none at all, just eat till I'm full. But I'm choosing wisely, lots of fruit and vegetables, pretty low fat (but I do eat the good fats), trying to get in lots of fibre and still enough Protein, etc etc. So I'm not eating any rubbish which means it's pretty low cal. I've done the calorie counting thing so many times in my life I can keep a pretty accurate mental scorecard and it's came in around 1000-1200 for the first couple of weeks, is edging up to 1500ish now, I think I will be having a fill next week.

:eek: This is my first week on regular food and I am trying to eat low fat and low sugar. I am eating my Protein first followed by my vegetables and carbs. It is so nice to be back on regular food.

I've found, post-op, that I can eat just about anything in moderation. The simple act of eating about 1/3 of my pre-op intake is enough to have me losing an average of 1.5 lbs per week. Today I officially hit the 20lbs loss mark! - I guess I should update my ticker....

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
