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.

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.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
