One month out I had a few sips of wine when I went on vacation.. but I didn’t go overboard. I definitely felt the alcohol faster than usual... then I had my first full glass of prosecco at 4 months and felt tipsy but was sober in an hour...😂

I was told that would happen. I want a drink so bad but was a little scared to try it lol. Thanks for responding.

How long ago did you have your surgery? My program doesn’t have any restrictions on alcohol (which I don’t know that I agree with). Anyway, you do want to be careful - your new tummy is sensitive, you’ll feel tipsy or drunk a lot quicker, there are a lot of empty calories and (most disturbing to me) there are certain studies that have shown post WLS patients can have a higher tendency for alcohol dependence. Addiction runs in my extended family, so that is something I’m going to be careful and mindful of.

I’d give it at least a couple months and then start with something easier on the stomach. I don’t even know what that would be - red wine ?

Did the carbonation in the procescco bother you ?

I have 1 drink a night usually about 5 nights a week. It is usually Fireball Whiskey, Peppermint Schnapps, Coconut Rum or Wine. I don't get drunk, just a little tipsy. I am aware of the empty calories and the sugar content but I have never had an alcohol problem and never have more than 1.

I thought alcohol was forbidden for a year?! [emoji15]. I’m afraid to even think about it during this rapid wl phase

No, I drank it slowly so I was fine.. although I have tried to drink one sip of a Diet Coke once and the carbonation really hurt even with just one sip so that will definitely be something I never pick up again 😊

6 weeks it was a Christmas party that I was nervous about so I ordered a white Russian. It took over an hour to drink. I've drank a few times in my 4 months. I always order white Russians since my body didnt reject it. I'm a cheap date 2-3 drinks will last 3-5 hours sipping on it. I ordered single shot in a pounder glass. I use to love bloody Mary's. One sip and I wanted to puke it tasted terrible. Haha anyway if you're gonna try anything go less booze bigger glass. Cheers!

Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc about 7 weeks post-op. Did fine, but definitely felt it. Drank mostly brown liquor pre-op, but I haven't felt the need to try that again...yet 😉

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
