I felt complete restriction (VSG) about 16 mins later I felt fullness (RNY).

OK...you are going to have to explain this to us! What's the diff between restriction and fullness?

Gathered together a bunch of stuff that needed to be used up and came up with.... FANCY TOAST. 😉

Ricotta mixed with preserved lemon & juice on toasted french bread slices, topped with truffle roasted figs and drizzled with honey...oh and some toasted walnuts on top.

I ate one toast: 184 calories.

I felt (for me anyway) the VSG restriction tightness occurred long before I felt satisfied with whatever I was eating but the discomfort feeling was more intense than hunger so I stopped eating. Sometimes I wanted more to eat but physically could not.

Fullness from RNY (for me) feels like traditional fullness where you don’t want to eat anymore. I feel truly done and don’t want anymore food.

But sometimes I get both restriction and fullness when I’m eating drier things especially Protein (the restriction hits first)

Finally got around to unmolding the creme caramel I made yesterday but then someone took a slice before I got a chance to take a pic of the thing (p.s. we call it “Leche Flan”).

I had like 1/2 tbsp like bite cuz i felt like any more and I’d dump. It was pretty delicious if you like creamy, silky, sweet, decadent, rich stuff. Its not something one would have alot of at once though, lol:

Ok, a little off-topic, but how do I get that little graphic in everyone's signature?

Also, on topic. Before sushi - after the coffee banana yogurt smoothie is on my desk as we speak. Not as cute, but just as yummy. IMG_5263.thumb.jpg.6464043968614e3e92ee1dcd63b2fe49.jpg IMG_0814.thumb.jpg.fc30045d4d39d5315b08760e3e55513c.jpg

Honestly, I have no idea when figs are in season, lol. I'm in Ontario, so not even sure its grown here.

I just buy the whenever they have them in costco :)

(but yeah, I loooooove figs, raw AND roasted, YUM. but not so much when they are dried...)

It has spicy mayo, which I assume is the lighter colored one and eel sauce. The name of the place is Super Yummy and that is the Super Yummy roll lol

Click on your profile name (top right corner), then select "My tickers". Tickers are a graphic representation of the numbers you put in the "Progress" tab under "My Surgery" (also found under your profile).

Tonite's dinner was a CORN-extravaganza.

Clockwise from top: Grilled corn on the cob, Jalepeno & Cheddar Corn bread, Corn Donut-Fritters with maple bacon cream cheese filling, Corn Dogs & a Corn succotash/cole slaw type of salad.

I had about 1/4 cup of the slaw, 1/2 a grilled corn on cob, and 1/3 cup-ish of the corn bread. Estimating 300 calories.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
