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!

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

    • HeBrokeTheChains

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
