6 weeks out and a half of a drummette?



Recommended Posts

Shouldnt i be able to eat more by now? The family had Wing Stop Friday night and i was able to eat not even half of the drum (wingette-not breaded) it was only about two-three slivers the size of your fingernail? I also had a half of a fry (i know a fry isnt the best choice but the sides are limited).

BTW As you can see my ticker is broke:blushing:....any suggestions?

meat is apparently one of the harder things to get down, so be patient. I don't know this firsthand (I'm only 2.5 weeks out), but that's what I've heard.

As to the ticker, you need to use BBCode, not HTML in your signature. On the TickerFactory page, there should be a BBCode version.

I can only get 3-4 of the drummettes down from Wingstop, I have to peel off the skin before I eat them and I am almost a year out. Fried foods didn't work for me for a long time, and even now I avoid them. But, chicken wings are my downfall. I do have to use ranch or blue cheese to cut the grease.

Can you get more ounces of other meats or is this the only time you've had issues getting more dense Protein down?

No i can hardly get any meat (or much else) down, my biggest accomplishment has been a two shrimp about two weeks ago.

I'm really sorry you're struggling with meats. By 6 months, I was able to get meats without many issues. Something kind of clicked around 6 months for me, and it became easier. I did have to stay on mushies longer, and couldn't get in more than 3oz of meat from months 3-5.

Has your surgeon given you advice on what is going on?

I had my sleeve done inmarch and I still have problem with meats. chicken I can have 3 maybe 4 bites before I am finished. Not much at all. It will get easier with time I am sure. Just do what you can. Im sure you are doing great!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
