Eating...not really...



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am 6 weeks post op and should be able to eat small meals per last meeting. I take maybe 3 bites and feel like I am going to get sick. Only thing I can really be ok with is shakes ( tired of!) And pudding. Anyone else has this happen and will it stop? Thanks!

Not time to worry yet. Six weeks is kind of an average, some people handle solids sooner, some later. Some doctors don't even ok solids until 8 weeks. I have found that getting Soup or something else in the savory realm helped a lot. Since it wasn't sweet, my brain was willing to recognize it as a "meal". Soups aren't particulary high in Protein by themselves, but once they're heated you can stir in 1/2 scoop of unflavored Protein Powder to up the protein content. Don't add the powder before you heat them up, though. The soup will get all clumpy! YUK!

oatmeal alone is not ideal, but adding plain protien powder to that is acceptable like described earlier like soup.....as it was told to me...it's just like eating a protien bar....

Try adding a packet of high Protein Bone Broth to soups/stews to add protein to savory meals.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      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!!  😈
