So tonight for dinner, I steamed a couple of servings of stir-fry vegetables, three ounces of grilled chicken breast (with no sauce or seasoning when cooked), a serving of jalapenos, and a dash of Cholula Green Pepper hot sauce. I was taught to clean my plate as a kid and almost always have. Tonight was only the second time that I stopped eating when I knew that the next bite was too much. I had finished all of the meat, all of the jalapenos, and about half of the steamed veggies. I set the plate aside, started my 30-minute timer until I can drink again, and sat back. Within a couple of minutes, I was very full.

Officially today, I'm at 705 calories, with 95g of Protein, 42g carbs, and only 16g fat. I've also logged 90oz of Water and am waiting to start drinking the next 30oz tumbler of water. I'm using MiO strawberry Watermelon liquid Water Enhancer. It makes it taste very good. My local grocery store had them on sale for $1.99 each if you buy 10. Needless to say, I have some at home and at work.

I also invested in two Fifty/Fifty 30oz stainless steel tumblers, one to keep at work and one for home. It makes it easy to watch my water volume.

Sounds like you're doing Great!

Thank you very much! I'm doing better... it's still a struggle with head hunger but I'm working hard on not listening to my head. I still find myself thinking about where to eat on the way home from work. I've been bringing smoothie for Breakfast, and both my lunch and dinner with me to work. This way, I do not eat once I'm home from work.

Ooh I got to keep following this thread. That stuff sounds so good and I'm in my waning days before Dietary Purgatory aka PreDiet sets in. No food Funerals but maybe a Farewell Tour?

How could 3 oz of unseasoned chicken and some steamed vegetables be "too much," pre-op?

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
