I’m struggling pretty bad



Recommended Posts

Hello, I’ve been on purée stage diet for about a week now and it was going so good! But now that I’ve gotten used to what I’ve been able to have it’s hard to switch it up and I’m getting bored with my food choices :( which has made me not want to eat at all. Any tips or ideas on how any of you got through the purée stage?

recipes. I used recipes. There are lots of recipes out there for purée stage when it comes to bariatric post surgery diet if you haven’t looked. I also spent time planning recipes for the next stage.

It was a long phase for sure - you kind of have to power through it. I ate a lot of refried Beans with a little bit of melted cheese. Sometimes I'd add a spoonful of guacamole too.

It is hard and there are no other words for it. Mix up your Protein. I love the Unjury chicken broth about to have one now! Guac, hummus, cheese they are your puree friends.

Hang in there!

I was told I could ingest anything I could throw in a blender - use your imagination. There was no food that was off limits - just the consistency was key...and keeping it low carb/low sugar too. I felt like it was a huge win to go out and get Soups, then bring them home and blend them in my vitamix. Flavor was great - and I could get something that was from someone else cooking. I never went so far as to blend a burger like my surgeon joked about. :P

I eat scrambled egg with tofu, refried Beans, Greek yogurt, hummus, and cottage cheese in a cycle of sorts. When I’m really bored I integrate cream of Soups from the full liquid stage. Only a few more days for me until I progress to “soft” foods. You can do it!!!

The world according to Eggface is pretty much my bible. I linked you to the pureed foods stage.

I kind of hated the first month, but it's only a month. I threw a can of beef vegetable Soup in the blender and enjoyed that quite a bit--just happy to have something not sweet. I had about half a container of yogurt every day, too. I can't recall when I started with cottage cheese, but I've had it probably five days out of seven ever since--with some fruit, it's my standard lunch.

It won't be long--hang in there!

Honey I would bet not. It would be full of sugar and empty calories. If you have a RnY bypass- dollars to donuts you 'll have a dumping spell, with a sleeve- you might merely vomit. And if you manage not to, you're sliding back into the bad habits that made you fat in the first place. If I were there I'd waggle my finger at you, I'm 72, I can get away with it. If Johnnie Cochran could play the race card I'm not above playing the age card. Please take the word of an old fat broad, if you have any just sniff or barely lick the spoon, no big chunks!

      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.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.
