Lemme know results please?!!! Aren't you about 1 week ahead of me? I want so much to try shrimp tomorrow night, but my spidey senses are "pinging," saying DON'T do it!!! [emoji20]
Ceviche!!!!!!!!

Had shrimp and I did well. Tasted the same and was delicious. Bought jumbo shrimp and maybe ate about 2 lol I really tired to push it because it was and wanted more. I was the oppose of R.Kelly “my mind was telling me yes but my body was telling me no” so that was that :)

Yum!!! I'm gonna wait until at least the start of week 4, maybe week 5. I bought some 10-15s on a super sale a couple days ago. They were still frozen. So froze on a cookie sheet, that way can take only 2 or 3 out at a time! :D

I'm also almost four weeks out (Surgery 2/12). My post op diet seems more rigorous than most I've noticed here. Two weeks of liquid, three weeks of pureed, three weeks of soft and then FINALLY real food. I have to admit that it's getting me down - I know it's important, but I will have gone without anything solid for two months.
I'm struggling to get enough fluids and it seems like when I focus on that, my Protein goals suffer. I just need to find that balance. Protein Powder in my pureed foods help, but honestly I'm over that. LOL I find I'm leaning on Protein Shakes to do what I need to do.
My other challenge right now is that I feel like I'm not losing weight as fast as I thought I would. At three weeks I was down 13 lbs from my surgery weight. I've been reading a lot of people reporting that they've lost 20, 30 lbs or more in the first month. I'm following my meal plan closely, haven't "cheated" at all and I've only lost 13 lbs over three weeks. I feel like at this pace it will take forever to get to my goal weight and that has me seriously bummed.
Ok, guess I've vented enough! Sorry you asked, aren't you? LOL

This is honestly how i am currently feeling. Surgery date was 2/21 and lost 12lb..maybe its the anxiety of seeing results already?!..

In order for you to get out of the stall phase you have to drink Water, water and more water, it will help you push through it and start to drop the weight. I went through the 3 week stall and it was super annoying. I found a youtube video on it, it was a life saver. It was also good yo know that stall is natural.

Rough day today.... need some advice.... I keep juggling from 243 to 245. This is so annoying and frustrating I know stalls last but I just was hoping more progress yesterday I only drank Water and kept my meals small no more than 400 Cals tops yesterday. I am just discouraged I feel like I am doing something wrong. I am cleared to work out so I am going to work out today by the way for those of you that don’t like to work out or don’t know how to work out. Check out resistance bands on Amazon they are a great cardio muscle work out and it doesn’t really feel like a work out. I am sore today but feel great physically. Mentally I am in the gutter. Ugh!!! Anyone having stalls?

Hw:298 lbs
Sw:260 lbs
Cw: 244.4 lbs was 243 lbs

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
