Recommended Posts

Evening all. I could do with some help. I've reached restriction and I'm struggling to eat sensibly. Most days I have snack a jack rice cakes, salad, hot choc/tea sometimes muller rice. I'm finding a lot of food just won't go down. Am I going to lose weight eating this little? I don't really feel hungry ever, I also don't drink any Water other then in tea. The scale hasn't moved for 3 weeks even though I can see my body changing. It's surprising to see how much my wedding dress has been bought in from fitting to fitting! Final fitting done now. Getting married next week! I really wanted to loose another 10 lbs to put me at 18st but I just can't shift it. I'm 12 weeks banded. Help! Dress photos show 3 weeks ago and yesterday! Xx

I'm no expert, but when I read that you can only get just a few different types of food down, I read this as having a little too much restriction. You should still be able to eat most of your Proteins, like eggs, chicken, Beans, fish. Too few calories can cause people to plateau. I don't know, this was just a thought !

And I forgot to add..... Congrats on your upcoming wedding !!!!

You need Protein darling. Otherwise you are starving yourself. Talk to your doctor. You don't want to be sick so close to the wedding.

Quantity doesn't matter to us, quality does and from the list you've described you should have any of this stuff at this stage of the game anyway. What about your Protein? Rice (carbs), rice cakes (carbs), salad (no nutritional value alone, lettuce leaves) all can swell and or go down too large to pass through. Rapid weight loss won't hurt you, but if you aren't getting the proper nutrition your body will eventually respond in kind. You can expect to feel weak, suffer from hair loss, brittle nails, poor skin quality and the elasticity in your skin will also suffer. Until you can adopt better food choices, you should show diligence in taking your Vitamins and supplements.

      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!
