Was able to eat 2 hard shell tacos today... Is that considered a lot?



Recommended Posts

Yesterday marked 2 months post op for me... I am down 51lbs since surgery day. I have busted my ass working this weight off since 1 week out. To Celebrate I picked up 2 hard shell supreme tacos from taco bell. I was able to eat 1 within the 5 mins drive home and ate the second one about 10 mins later. I was very surprised I was able to eat that much and feel pretty good afterwards. Literally 1 month ago my wife came home with taco bell, I took 2 bites of my wifes taco and was stuffed.

So is this considered a lot of food for 2 months out. The meal was just shy of 400 calories but I am still under for the day but slightly over my carb limit.

I'm 4 months out and I can't quite finish one of them unless I go really really slow. I can't see myself every eating two of them.

Almost 2 years out and I can't eat 2 tacos. One fills me up. I could eat the other one a couple hours later.

I'm 8 mos post op and can eat one soft corn taco And feel full. I could eat a second one hours later, also (2-4hours).

Although...if I'd only eaten sliders like Greek yogurt, cottage cheese and/or Protein shakes, for example, I wonder if I'd be able to eat more. I don't wonder enough to give it a go, mind you :-p

I'm 4 months out but still not eating taco shells, potatoes, bread, crackers or rice. Still can only eat 2-3 oz at a time. A taco sounds wonderful!!

Me too! Im almost 10 weeks out and have gotten a chicken soft taco from Del Taco and ate the "guts" but I was full after one. I think I would puke at this point if I ate the tortilla too even if I was allowed.

Why do you think you would puke?

11 weeks out and there's no way I could eat a whole one.

Gee mike... I think they are all telling you it's a lot

:P

It would be easier to eat a hard shell over a soft shell though.

Only because I have no more room left in my sleeve. Also i have this Idea that the tortilla would expand in my sleeve and it would come back up. I'm sure I'm overreacting but for the moment it keeps me from eating breads, tortillas, grain etc and I'm not allowed those til 6 months out. :)

So I would say look at several things as a man you have a bigger stomach than us women... Yes there is Kirk there... But are we compare Taco Bell to Taco Bell right because a "real" taco could be much different.

Just thinking out loud here

      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!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
