Do You Drink Coffee, How Much Weight Have You Lost?



Recommended Posts

I drink coffee... I drink it every day... probably 2-3 cups... That being said I also drink ALOT of Water as well so I don’t really worry about the argument between whether coffee counts as a liquid or not... I am drinking enough water to get my daily intake plus whatever I could lose in coffee and probably a little more...

I don’t worry about the added calories too much bc I don’t use sugar and I use only about 1-2 tbsp of skim milk in it...

As to this coffee debate people have I say to each his own... There will never be a definitive answer on the coffee good or coffee bad debate!

I'm 9 weeks out, and drink regular coffee every day. I didn't have any the first 6 weeks after surgery, and I sure missed it. I'm 41 lbs down.

I have had an iced vanilla latte (NOT sugar free) everyday for the last 20 months! I waited until I was healed (like a month to try my first one) I made my weight loss goal and have been maintaining for more than a year.

You are a WLS unicorn then.

I started drinking regular coffee one week after my surgery. Only one cup. I've given everything else up so I feel it couldn't hurt. Makes me feel normal. I'm 4 weeks post-op.

There are several brands of Protein Powder out there that make coffee or espresso powders, Click and Chike are two that come to mind. Click has about 12-15 g of Protein per serving and is the equivalent of 2 shots of espresso! When I combine that with a chocolate protein powder and some SF Torani Syrup, put it all in a clear plastic cold beverage cup from Starbucks with a lot of ice, I am smug in the deliciousness of something that is good for me and like 1000 calories less than what others are sucking down from 'bux. ^_^

Why? Starbucks tall vanilla latte made with skim milk w regular sugar has 150cals I drink

them on occasion. My everyday coffee is 90 cals I just make sure to track it all on MFP and stay within my limit. I can't do sugar free the chemicals in artificial sweeteners kill my throat.That being said I don't do much other sweet stuff.

They gave me a cup in the hospital, after surgery. I didn't drink it but did ask why, my dr was very lenient no restrictions.

I drink it maybe once a week for bathroom relief (caffinated and with creamer). Lol, it is a little miracle.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
