Should I be able to eat this much?



Recommended Posts

I am on day eleven and I wasn’t paying attention and at the Jello cup in about ten minutes. Shouldn’t I have felt over full or something? I didn’t feel like anything no stuffed or such. It has me worried my surgeon made my pouch larger then standard due to me being a lower BMI. I am wondering if I am going to have restriction.

Jello slides right through. When you start food with texture, you'll know more about your restriction. Don't worry, there is no evidence anything is wrong.

Its visible on the full site if you log in on a computer. It's not a feature of my mobile app (probably not yours either)

For now, at Day 13, I can't trust myself to know how much is too much. That's why our doc's and RD's give us material that says about how much we need to eat at each meal. Mine is very specific.

At this Phase, I'm at about 1/8-1/4 cup - eating slowly, small bites, Protein first for 20-30 minutes. Or alternately, I'm to start with 1oz of dense protein, plus a bite of veg. I can work up to 2oz dense protein and 1/8-1/4 c. veg. But that is over a 2-3 week span of time from where I am today.

So I measure and weight all the stuff. They do allow 1/2c of yogurt and sf Jello since it's a slider food.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
