Laura's RNY Journey; Age 31 Starting Weight 365



Recommended Posts

I hit 323.2 today. Down 3 more pounds! The gym and walking is such a difference. Every time I work out, even with eating my 800-1200 calories, I drop weight. 8 lbs away from my first goal!

Real meat not Soy

I was eating vegan chicken nuggets and patties. My surgeon told me the soy breaks down faster and causes a spike in blood sugar which is what was making me crave carbs. So I’m eating regular nuggets and patties when I need the quick meal. I’m still using my zero calorie BBQ Sauce.

So, it’s been 6 days since my last post. I have not lost any weight because I stopped food journaling. So, I restarted today and am hoping for some results. I also skipped a workout last week. I need to stay on top of everything. However, I did lose two inches in my thighs since my last measurement so the gym is definitely paying off.

Yes, I was eating the morning star ones. He said it would be better to eat real meat nuggets than vegan.

food items:

I’ve been eating pirogies for an occasional meal and Peanut Butter pretzels as a snack sometimes. Both of them have Protein if you are looking for other options and you’re not worried about carbs.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
