Hey ladies!

Thanks for the info Kathy! I'm gonna look online for those spencos.

I love the Swiss cheese laughing cow wedges. The garlic and herb one didn't taste too good to me. I found some low fat/carb whole wheat crackers I eat with them.

Went back to work last week, and It went pretty well! I ate every 3-4 hours. Took too much food though haha. My coworkers asked me so many questions and were very welcoming!!!

I start regular foods on Tuesday! Can't wait to weigh tomorrow! Ttyl.

I feel human almost! Went out to eat last night to bonefish grill thought I'd have a crab cake hated it! I've always loved them in the past. Gave them it hubby and had a some of his tilapia. I really need to learn how to make fish. I'm too chicken to try lol.

Went to the movies and had a little popcorn. I really felt normal even though I had such a small amount.

Hello again ladies.

My doctor is pretty strict and I can only have 3 meals a day, no Snacks, no carbs. What helps me at night is to eat two of the sugar free popsicles. It's something you can bite into and chew and counts as a liquid like it did during our "liquids only" days. I particularly like the tropical flavored ones.

I went out to eat for the first time last night. I ordered beef with carrots. The beef was so tender and flavorful...it was the first thing I've had that I didn't have to cook myself. The carrots ended up being a few shreds like you would find in a salad, so that wasn't much. I was only able to eat 1/4 cup, so I took 3/4 of it home with me.

But I do hate to spent a bunch of money on a meal and only barely touch it. I did ask to see the kids menu, but there was nothing on there but fried food and carbs.

I think learning to eat out and not spend a ton will be an acquired tactic!!!

Thanks for the well wishes! I'm much better now.

Congrats to all the "losers", lol. I weighed in at my first group support meeting this week, and I'm down 43 pounds total, which is 24 pounds since surgery. I'm "this close" to zipping up another size down in jeans. What a great feeling!

My daughter is working full time now, so I'm babysitting more hours. Makes it hard to get in here to post. But I'll pop in when I can.

I hope you're all having a good weekend!

I am down 19 pounds since surgery, 24 since pre-Surg diet. The past few days, I find that my appetite and stomach capacity have started to creep up. Foods that I could not eat post-op are starting to be okay. Yesterday I had a small nibble of my friend's b-day cake. I tracked it, sure, and was within my goals for the day but ... Feeling a bit more normal, whether that is a good thing or not. Very glad of Fitnesspal right now as it holds me accountable!

Jane, I'm glad you are feeling better...babysitting will sure keep you active.

I know what you mean about those jeans. I tried on a pair from my closet today and I'm still too big for them, but soon, very, very soon!!!

It sounds like everyone is doing well - congrats to all of us.

Hello all,

Jane glad you're better! :-)

Went to my 6 week checkup on Friday. Down 21 lbs since surgery. Was able to get off all of meds except Vitamins, of course. Nurse talked to me about 2 types of victories: loss of pounds and loss of inches. Some ppl don't count that but it's just as important as the scale. She told me to stop weighing myself. She also told me instead of having a weight loss goal (which she felt was very achievable, instead have a size goal). She also said that I need to get in at least 80g of protein- that 60g is the minimum amount I should be getting. We had a very lengthy chat. I'm feeling better about what I've accomplished so far and what I can accomplish in the future!!! :-)

Hope everyone have a great week!

      Well, long time no see. 
      It's been a rough couple of weeks. I should have been expecting the other shoe to drop after having it so easy for the first three weeks post op. I was getting my water and protein easily, had no pain, nausea, or vomiting.
      But as soon as the soft foods really started in earnest I started having problems. Pain, foamies, slimeys, vomiting galore. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it. Something that I ate easily yesterday causes pain and vomiting after the first bite today. Sometimes it's my pills, other times they go down easy. I just don't get it. 
      I'm trying to stay positive. I know this is a season in my life, and things will eventually even out. I'm just so tired of being afraid to eat, not knowing what kind of response my body will have. I'm mostly hitting my protein target, thanks in large part to protein shakes (which I hate, but look at as medicine). I missed my water targets by a lot over the weekend, due mostly to feeling awful, which I know is a terrible cycle... throw up, don't feel like drinking anything, get dehydrated, get constipated, feel like crap, repeat. 
      The three-week stall is also still here. I thought I had busted through it, but I've been bouncing between 216-219 for the last two and a half weeks, which is a contributing factor to my mood and frustration level. And add in wee-lings who are going crazy with end of the school year insanity, friends with busy schedules who I haven't been able to see in weeks, and I'm an unhappy girl. 
      Things will turn around. I know they will. Just not feeling it at this moment.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.
