3/14 surgery- not sure how much I’ve lost. My next pre-op appointment is on the 16th. I’m trying to only weigh every few weeks. I don’t want to have to think about stalls. I’m getting between 500-800 calories a day, Protein, Vitamins and most of my Water. If I’m not losing weight then it just isn’t in the cards for me. At this point I’ve going through extreme measures to be healthy and I don’t want to obsess about my weight anymore. I know I am and will continue to lose, period.

3/14 surgery- not sure how much I’ve lost. My next pre-op appointment is on the 16th. I’m trying to only weigh every few weeks. I don’t want to have to think about stalls. I’m getting between 700-800 calories a day, Protein, Vitamins and most of my Water. If I’m not losing weight then it just isn’t in the cards for me. At this point I’ve going through extreme measures to be healthy and I don’t want to obsess about my weight anymore. I know I am and will continue to lose, period.




Oh wow! That is a lot of calories for 3 weeks out. My doctor expected us to not get any more than 500 in a day!

Actually that should have said 500-800. Most I’ve gotten is 748. Typically I’m in the 600s. Also I’m on soft/regular food.

I'm on soft and only able to take in ~400 a day, but I get my 60 g of Protein in with that. If I had to eat any more than I do I don't think I could do it.

I've been eating chicken, ground Turkey, shrimp, fish, etc. Honestly, I must puree the food in my mouth. As long as you chew it well enough, it has the same exact result as blending it.

OMG, just had 2 ounces of wild cod and it was so good! This is a good choice for folks who don't like fishy fish. Its chewy like lobster, mild, and filling....

I researched it and bought a little Kitchen Aid food processor, but I haven't used it -- I use my teeth like @madlily :D

I checked my journal and it looks like I’ve been consistently getting over 500 calories since 3/26. I hate Protein Drinks but do force myself to try to get in 1 each day. I use a whole cup of 2% milk (don’t like 1%) with the Unjury Protein Powder plus a bit of Peanut Butter powder. That’s about 250 calories alone. So it’s easy for me to get another 250 plus each day.

I do the Premier Protein shakes because they are genuinely the only ones I don't hate. They're only 160 calories for 30 g Protein. So if I don't feel like having real food, I can drink two and stay under 400, even with the addition of a string cheese. They say to eat 4 times a day, but I find I can barely drink a whole Protein Drink in one sitting, so I'll split one of them into 2 and that's how I get my 4 meals in a day.

I was doing premier but after surgery they did not taste the same. In a pinch I will drink one but I have to break it up over the day too. Eventually I will finish all the ones I have left over but it’s going to be slow. I’ll probably use them when I’m m running late to work or something.

I have strawberry, peach, banana and Cookies n cream. Sounds good and they were but I don’t like them now. Trying to get my husband to drink them :)

I have a ninja bullet that I used at first. Then I realized if I just chew really well I can purée it in my mouth :)

I started soft foods today! Stayed away from meat in puree stage cause that just sounded disgusting. But I had a little canned chicken mixed with guacamole for lunch and a small piece of mahi mahi for dinner! I've never been so satisfied in my life!

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
