Great job Amy ! ! ! I am going to the post office on Friday this week. I found some shirts, and one or two sweaters that should work for you. They vary in sizes, and I'll get those Protein samples out to you as well. My truck has been acting up so I haven't been out of the house much.

hey wisconsin girl-the brand name of a wrap we have found is by mission- low carb wrap. it seems like it has 12 grams of carbs then has quite a bit of dietary Fiber which you take away and it takes the carbs down to 5 gr. yes 5 grams and they are actually really good!!! i can usually only eat half of one. i find them at Walmart, food lion and bi-lo. see if you can find them at your grocery store or you may be able to go on-line.

Lauramomof3: Are we supposed to check net carbs or just any ole carb? I have been doing ALL the carbs...

Today: Day 25 post op

Breakfast:

1 Scrambled Egg

1 Morningstar Veggie Sausage

Lunch:

1 (small) slice pizza

Snack: cheese and beef Jerky

Dinner:

1/2c rice and 1pz chicken

Water throughout the day.

Cal: 1171

Carbs: 95

Prot: 71

End of Day Observation: Damn, I did not feel good today. I ate too much and ate crap. The pizza was SOOOO not worth it and is where all my calories came from! I promise to keep tracking what I eat as no matter how embarrased I get from eating crap, I need to be accountable and keep track of what I see on the scale. I am thinking that if on Monday things don't look good, I am reverting next week to a liquid diet. I feel that I am eating too much... ArGH!

Oops, forgot to mention that I bought an ice cream maker... made some strawberry ice cream with splenda and it is about 108 calories, 5g carbs, 2g Protein for 1/2 cup... I can up the protein in my next recipe... YUMMMMMY from what I sampled.

I did all carbs, and did not count net carbs.

I can't believe you can eat pizza this early out. It's crazy how different we all really are with our new tummies.

I would caution going back to liquids as it could cause a stall because your body could go back into starvation mode. . .

Are you getting in the minimum of 64oz of Water?

Are you feeling hungry? I know every program is different, but I was told 4 meals a day. No snacking. I rarely got in 4 meals, but I stuck to the no snacking rule for a long time post-op.

Tiff,

I need to figure out how best to measure what I am drinking. I don't think I am getting it all in!

As for eating pizza... yeah... I ate it, but I had heartburn from hell and I think I had a mighty sugar spike as I had to take a nap afterwards... for the tummy, it felt fine.

I am not following the "Protein first" rule, from what I can see... and I think this is why I am getting way too many carbs in...

I find myself hungry on days I eat too many carbs... I am trending that. I am going to try to do a "under 30" carb day tomorrow (consciously) instead of doing what I have been doing for the past few days and winging it... I am eating with my eyes as i find myself giving my hubby what I don't finish most evenings.

I will try conscious eating first to ensure that I PLAN what I eat instead of winging it before I go all "starvation mode"... I probably just need to get those carbs under control, I think...

Keep the suggestions/comments coming. This is why I am posting what I eat so someone can knock some sense into me if I go nuts... Pizza... that's just nuts, even though my tummy took it like a champ... lol

Lauramomof3: The tortillas I eat are "Buena Vida Low Carb Whole Wheat Tortilla". They are the soft taco size (like 6" or 8") and the stats are:

Cal:70

Fat:4

Carb:7

Fiber:3

Protein:4

I buy these at Wal-Mart.

Are the ones you are talking about the bigger sized tortillas?

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
