Day two after my MGB



Recommended Posts

I think that it should work itself out as long as you are taking your Vitamins. You are still in the beginning of healing. It will take a little time to get back to 'normal'.

I am doing so much better! I have lost 35 lbs so far and i am generally feeling better and the lack of energy is not a big issue now,
Also doing good when it comes to drinking the needed Water intake, which is really good coz drinking water was really hard.

The problems i am having now is first of all the Protein issue, i am so sick from Protein Shakes and bars and i cant seem to do good in that at all,
Second i am trying out different types of food to know what i can and cant have this results in a lot of throwing up! But it does get better everyday :)

Thats fantastic weight loss results and also being able to drink water with ease! I hope your energy levels improve with time and the throwing up will cease.
I actually dread having to drink protein shakes (I find them absolutely awful!)
So are you trying other foods for your protein intake? And if so, what are they?

Actually i am not trying as much as i should, as currently i am just looking for food that will stay in and wont make me throw up!
I mostly get my Protein now only from dairy products, I am good with skimmed milk i drink about two cups of that everyday and i eat cheese too,
It is not enough i know but currently all my experiences with chicken and meat did not go well :( but i did not cut them out completely i still try them every other day,
At first i was really worried because i know i am not having the needed intake and i keep reading on how important it is but now i am more relaxed as i realized i am doing my best and i know i will do better everyday

Hi all, I had my MGB on Sept 7. I feel great and so far no issues. I am almost worried because so far nothing has triggered a negative reaction. I almost feel like nothing was done. I am down 34 pounds. My issue is Protein Shakes, they run right through me now.

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Think I am hitting a stall-ish period. Weight loss is def slowing and I need a kickstart to get it going again....any suggestions?

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
