December 2017 Gastric Bypass!



Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I'm down to 260 pounds from 311 in about two months. I also was stuck at 280 for about two weeks. My issue is that I'm barelly eating anything. Most of the time I'm eating fruits. Mango doesn't go down well, I wonder why? But then basically every other fruit (bananas, apple, oranges, grapes, melon, watermelon) I eat for lunch and dinner. For Breakfast I eat a small bawl of cheerio and polly cheese.

I tried to chicken, well cook steak and most vegetables but I keep vomiting them a couple of minutes of eating them. The other day I made some broil salmon and I ate some but the following day I tried to eat some left over and I just couldn't keep it down. I wonder when will I be able to eat some other food besides cheerio and fruits.

Wow...what does your doctor nutritionist think? Have they given you any ideas about getting Protein in other ways?

Doctor told me that 5 per week is on the high end, normally people lose about 4 per week. He told me to drink the Protein Shake and tried eating fish again.

Sounds great!

If you can tolerate it, try lentils, blacks, etc. They are great sources of Protein, especially since your diet is geared heavily toward being plant-based. Keep up the great work!

Thanks, NatureLover! I have noticed a lot of posts about stalling and they did help. I just get so afraid of this not working either, with all of my weight loss failures! And my Protein intake is so bad since I just can’t stomach Protein Shakes and drinks. It’s the sweetness that makes me gag!

I'm back finally! The forum is giving me fits so I haven't had a chance to read through this thread. I hope everyone is doing well!

I'm at about 37 lbs down since Dec 28, so no complaints. I also got back to work yesterday (finally) and am feeling pretty tip top overall. My pouch handles different kinds of food well, and next week all restrictions are lifted so I can try raw veggies (hello salad!) and nuts. I've been fortunate to have a pretty unremarkable recovery.

I have finally figured out what my body's "tell" is for when I'm eating too fast (especially), or too much, etc. I get very bad indigestion in my back. Crampy and painful and it can last for hours. I'm only just figuring that out, and I have to get better at slowing down (or stopping) when it happens. (Like right now. OUCH!)

Anyway, nice to be back!

Today's lesson - always remember to pay attention to the 30 minute rule! I'm usually very good, but I was eating a desperately needed snack while I was meeting with a couple of people and lost track of myself. I drank Water right away. Ouch!

On the day of my surgery I was 311 and that was on December 18, 2017. As of May 12, 2018 I am at 210. I'm hoping to go down to 185-190.

      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.
