Eating TOO much??



Recommended Posts

I am 7 months post op RNY and 115 pounds down! Woo!! Lately though, i've been finding myself able to eat a loooot more than i was the previous 6 months. I really hope i have not stretched my pouch, but don't believe I have as i follow my doctor's orders/diet to a T. Is it possible that as I am healing i'm just able to eat more and more? I'm still not eating anywhere CLOSE to the amounts i was able to eat pre op, but certainly a lot more than i was able to just a few months ago. It's a bit concerning, so if it's somewhat normal my mind will definitely be at ease!

Hello. Yes as time goes by you will be able to eat a little more. I am a year post op and I notice also that I been wanting to eat more than before. Just remember to eat slowly and once your body gives you signal that you are getting or are full, stop eating or you will vomit. I have had many issues from day 1 and trust me I don't not want any an anyond owing through what I been through. You will be ok. Eat good foods and eat in mallet frequent meals if need to. Congratulations on your weight loss and keep up the good work. People will have up and downs with weight loss but if you eating right and exercising will help. That is something I have to do more. Best of luck.

Yes I'm 18 months post op and sometimes it scares me how much I can eat now. I still have some weight I want to lose and it's much tougher now cause I can eat anything and have an appetite. It's important to keep up the exercise and build muscle to help your metabolism. Great job losing 115 pounds!!

Good to insure you plan your meals now and stick to the plan to avoid over eating.

As mentioned, also eating slow and learn to stop when satisfied, not full.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      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!
