Hello from overseas

Recommended Posts

Hello, i am Annette Flora , 50, from the Netherlands..

i had surgery 4/17/2018.
I am glad to find a MGBforum

With the 10day preopdiet i lost 15,43 pounds and the month post-op only 11,68
I am now 268,96 pounds and at a stall.

HELP😕 i know it is common . I give others advice to be patient, but for my self i am insecure.

Can you tell me how much Protein or calories do you eat one month post op? Maybe even see your menu’s?
And were you allowed to excercise a little again?

Welcome, I had gastric bypass surgery whereas you had Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) surgery so any advise may be a little different.

Since you are 1 month post-op, exercise is important. You should be exercising every day about 30 minutes. Walking is very good exercise.

You should be consuming around 75 to 90 grams of Protein each day. Meals should always focus on protein first. If you are unable to meet this daily protein requirement, you need to incorporate Protein Shakes into your diet.

Also there is a daily Fluid requirement of 64-80 ounces of fluids per day. The fluid requirement is met by a combination. It is not only the Water that you drink each day. But also the water you drink when you take your Vitamins and medicine. It is the milk you drink. It is the fluids content of the protein shakes. It is the water component of the Soups you take. It is met by flavored water such as Crystal Light. It is met by sugar free popsicles. It is met by tea and decaf coffee. It is a combination of all the fluids that you consume during the day

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
