Well ditch the alcohol.....

You don't list what you are eating, so more info is needed from you.

My tip would be to have a Protein Shake (one scoop) in the morning. I usually mix it with 4 oz of almond milk and 2 oz of frozen fruit. Then for lunch I have a pouch of tuna fish 7 crackers. One snack in the afternoon of 1 oz of veggie chips. dinner is 4 Oz of meat (chicken,fish or pork) 8oz of veggies (like squash,green Beans or broccoli). Then during the day I drink Water about 96 oz. I don't drink any alochol or anything sweet. Just water. During my 6 months of supervision I have lost 60 lbs.

Seashell29's list looks good. My question is whether you've met with a nutritionist? Have you been given some paperwork by your surgeon's office? I don't know how far from surgery you are, but there are usually pretty specific instructions about pre-op diets--many people have to do all liquids; some have Protein Shakes for Breakfast and lunch with a lean dinner. But you should definitely be receiving guidance from your medical team.

And I'm pretty sure you know the alcohol and hotwings are not good choices . . .

What are you doing in the gym for 2.5 hours? Maybe that's too long and it causes hunger or the feeling that you can eat those things?

I gave up alcohol about a month before surgery. I had a protien shake for breakfast pre op (and now still post op). I would have a snack in the morning a few hours after breakfast and a snack in the afternoon a few hours after lunch.

I also used, still do, My Fitness pal, that may stop you from eating poorly. Seeing the calories and fat in these things.

Okay, for my pre-op dinners, I had a salad, a Protein, and veggies--I was told to steam them, but ugh, so I roasted them--better flavor, no more calories (or only a few from a dash of olive oil). For the protein, I had mostly fish--just bought a bag of frozen flounder and fixed that various ways. It was, frankly, not the best choice, because it's such a flat fish. I would have been happier with tilapia or salmon. I mostly baked the fish with lemon and herbs. Will admit to putting panko on it and sauteeing it once. The veggies should be the nonstarchy ones--green Beans or zucchini or spinach. A couple of nights I just had a spinach and cheese omelet. I had chicken a few times, once in a sort of salad with mayo, an apple, some celery, some cranberries, and some walnuts--sort of a take on a Waldorf salad. I had dessert, too, either sugar-free pudding or one of the sugar-free fudgesicles or popsicles. I was having Protein Shakes for the other two meals, so my total daily calories weren't that high--but I didn't lose a lot on my pre-op diet. Didn't gain, though.

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.
