I Need Help And Im Very Sad



Recommended Posts

I'm hitting my 5 month mark on sept 27 and I've lost total of 48 pounds I know right not much.. I just realized what I've been doing wrong. I had a hard time finding a good Protein Shake so I found one I loved it has no flavor it's Soy Protein and it has 110 calories I believe. So I make my shake with scoop of protein, and scoop Peanut Butter, 1/2 bananna, and soy milk and its very delicious but I just realized its a weight gainer. Smh no wonder I'm stuck.. I knew it was high calories but I figured that's all I was really able to enjoy it was ok but now I realize its not.. So please help any one know some good low calorie protein shake that are delicious ? I don't care for chocolate. Any suggestions will help thank you

I don't think an average of ten pounds a month is bad..... In fact it's probably healthier!!! Hang in there!

My husband and I drink the Premier Protein brand you can get from costco or order online. They have vanilla and strawberry flavors as well as chocolate. they are RTD and are about $24 for a case of 18. 160 Cal, 30g Protein, 3-5 carb depending on flavor, 3g fat.

I pick up samples of shakes when I see ones that look interesting - some are horrid (cannot do Muscle Milk ever! They smell almost like acetone to me) and some are tolerable, but the Premier brand is one we have in the fridge at all times - one case of chocolate and one of vanilla :)

And congrats on your loss so far - you have achieved a lot! Don't forget where you started :)

I love my coffee, which was really hard for me to give up when I first had surgery 2 years ago. So, I found a protien that was not sickenly sweet or overly think.

Cappucino Protein from Family Bariatrics.com. 7 packets for around $12 ish. I still drink them when I am on the go and can't meal plan. Now I make with half Decaf coffee and half fat free milk. Shipping can be expensive so maybe search your local area health stores or bariatric stores to see if they carry any.

Finding the right Protein is essential to weight loss and keeping healthy. Sound to me like you have lost a lot of weight so far. Quit beating yourself up and move forward. Maybe walk a little more or lift weights in the comfort of your own home. Internet has great videos on firming up those saggy arms, legs or for me, my non existent rear end.

Good luck and keep searching. Know I spent hundreds of dollars finding the right protein but when I did, it was all good.

I like Muscle Milk, I think the best one is Cake batter, but i also like banana creme and vanilla creme. The cake and banana i can only find at GNC and The Vitamin store.

Maybe some foods with lots of Protein too....like greek yogurt. Some brands have 23g. of protein per cup and I sweeten mine with Torani SF Syrup (vanilla).

I drink the vanilla EAS with 6 oz of fat free lactaid, it's really smooth and tastes good. Congrats on your weight loss. A friend of mine told me his friend died from losing weight too quickly after surgery so I'd rather have the weight come off slow and steady.

The Greek yogurt that Aligayle suggested is also loaded with probiotic cultures - baskillions of them which are very good for our digestive health. Keeping things moving along and healthy is important!

I know that when my losses slow -which they have recently I look at basics - LilDiva's bootcamp plan works wonders - really up the Protein, the Water, take ALL Vitamins (I have been known to be selective if I am really over the flavor of a particular chewable - i am at the point that I am transistioning to more capsule forms though which helps) make sure you get all of your Calcium, move your body.

Just getting my 64 oz or trying to hit 128 will make me drop weight like crazy.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
