Are y’all using calcium chews? I was sleeved 3/29 and I’m afraid they’ll get stuck like gum or something [emoji23] I guess just tiny bites.....

I am using calcium chews since 1 week out. No problem whatsoever. I also use chewable multi that I prefer to suck on rather than chew. No issues at all.

I am switching back to pills/capsules. Sleeved 3/28 and bought a whole bunch of liquids and different chewables to carry me through the first 6 months. BUT my tastes have changed and those that were palatable before the surgery are just sickening to me now. I have poured the liquid MV, Calcium and Iron down the drain after just 3 or 4 days.

The SOFT CHEW calcium from Celebrate tastes pretty good to me in some flavors, but not all. Can't go wrong with the caramel.

I tried the chewable tablets for MV, Iron and Calcium for about 10 days, but now can't even stand their odor let alone the sweet taste. So back to researching.

I am now settling for MV Capsules from Celebrate, Citrical NEW SHAPE/size MINI's for calcium citrate and going to the Zahler's Iron complex capsules. They are all of a size my surgeon approved of, just have to take one at a time.

Question on portion size - Sleeved on 3/28

Started pureed stage yesterday and didn’t take long to come up with another question.

When measuring portions of something more solid than liquids like a tuna or chicken salad, Should I be measuring volume or weight?

I scooped ½ cup of chicken salad for my dinner but it sure looked like a lot sitting on the plate. I measured the weight and it weighed more like 7 oz.

Which should we be using?

Hi , I was sleeved on 3/27...went to md today..I am on purees ......

I use a food scale for meats, or fish or solids.....7 oz. is way too much for one meal!....plus isn't chicken salad full of mayo or did you make it yourself.....

do you puree the salad?

I think 2 oz is the right size

Made myself and pureed. I agree 7 oz was way too much (I didn't eat it, only half) but I thought I was only scooping 4oz. I guess I'll just follow my new rule. If liquid/pours equal liquid measure, if it doesn't pour I'll weigh it.

This is a good question! Everybody does it differently. I asked my RD, and she said to weigh my Protein (and for me, its 2 ounces weeks 4-5, 2.5 ounces weeks 6-12). And because its easier, I weigh out 2 ounces of fruit/veges, too. Some on the board weigh protein in a half cup measuring cup and then add veges to make half a cup total.

Please don't pour your unused drugs down the drain. Our local Water, so many,people have done that upstream that you will test positive for drugs even though you're not an user. Many municipalities draw and discharge from rivers, reservoirs and lakes.[emoji20][emoji477][emoji20]

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
