11 days post op and frustrated

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Needing a little encouragement or an idea for some new food to try. I’ve been managing with my Protein drinks, sugar free ice pops, cottage cheese, Soups (broth). I saw the doc for my 7 day post op visit on Tuesday and he said to try egg. I did and threw it up. I think I ate too much. I’m bored of what I’m eating and feeling depressed about it today. Can anyone give me some ideas? Is it going to get better?

Yogurt? SF Jello with yogurt? Laughing cow cheese? How many Soups have you tried? Ethnic soups like hot and sour or Tom Yum? Pacific Brand or Trader Joe's brand Tomato with Roasted Pepper in an aseptic box was a particular favorite of mine. Can you do full liquids? I made lentil Soup and pureed it.

Hi there. Yes. Full liquids. Tried yogurt. I have to try different Soups to give me more variety. I am missing meat. That’s the issue. I want to eat meat and I know that’s not happening.

Make beef Soup, strain out the meat. Puree the veg with the broth. Lots of good beefy flavor.

      Have decided on the Lap Band.  Excited, tomorrow 7/24 I have my consultation with my surgeon!  Hoping he will approve me.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
