@ mspatrice thanks that's what I've been dealing with stalls and I also use MFP and saw that I was consuming too many carbs so now I'm modifying me eating. What kind of Protein Shakes do you drink?

I drink Premier Protein shakes 11 oz (30 gram) Protein, I also use Unjury unflavored Protein Powder to make green smoothies. GENEPRO protein powder is one I like but my NUT is skeptical about its benefits.

@ mspatrice33 thanks sooo much I have them but was using nectar Protein mixed with skim milk it's just so many things your doctor or nutritionist don't tell you especially about the carbs luckily I found this site!

I just switched up my diet I was consuming to many carbs. How do you get 800-1000 calories and your carbs stay so low I need help on a typical day what do you eat if you don't mind sharing @ mspatrice33

Try limiting your carbs by increasing Protein and green veggies. Some veggies are even carby. I tend to eat the following and practice the interval eating no eating and drinking at same time

2 Water bottles on wake up and way to work

Breakfast 9 am 2 eggs sausage patty

snack 8 cheese cubes and sausage link

Water 2 bottles

lunch baked chicken and 1 cup spinach

2 water bottles

Snack 8 cheese cubes 2 celery stalks

2 Water bottles

dinner before 8 chicken and salad only vingerette

I wait two hours before I go to bed after I eat.

I did this for two weeks and I lost 20 lbs

I had to lose weight to gey back to my approval weight

@ m4nurse, yes I spend a great deal of time researching cause I didn't get enough required info from NUT. I have found I have to pay attention to my body and determine what works and what doesn't. I found if I keep my body confused I steadily lose

2 lbs a week. I basically keep my calories on a roller coaster, one day high, then I go low, and so on. I don't keep the same calorie schedule daily. So far this is working for me!

You will find what works best for you! Best wishes on your journey.

Hi! My surgery is scheduled for October 6 and pre-op diet is scheduled to start on Sept 23rd. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I just ordered some Unjury products...(I was told they are the best). What does your "pre-op" diet routine consist of? I just want to make sure I'm prepared!

Hello. Unjury is awesome. I love the chocolate. The pre-op depends on your surgeon's plan. I was allowed to have two shakes, one fruit and one Protein with salad per day. If I was still hungry, i could have extra veggies. But you will have to check with your bariatric NUT.

Wow, awesome concept there. I love the fact that everyone's journey is different. But you can still learn from others.

m4nurse, you also have Pure Protein. I use EAS chocolate protein with Water and 1 tablespoon of creamy Peanut Butter. But it does have 13g of carbs. But I am consuming less carbs per day, so for now it is okay. I think Atkins shakes are okay too. Check the label on that.

So I started on my bike today. I attempted to do 53 minutes but I started to feel light headed and nauseous. I did stop once I was 45 minutes which is good. I do know that I was able to do the whole 53 minutes and then some pre-surgery. So, its definitely as post surgery thing.

What was that all about?

Another thing, I was looking at my current weight and my goal weight. Man! I have a long journey. 113 pounds to lose! A long journey

Then I was looking at my highest weight and my goal weight. That's 173 pounds! That's a lot of weight, lol. Wow! To lose that amount of weight would be awesome. I hope to eventually get there.

Later losers!

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
