But ... all those fluids!?! :o

I almost never get my fluids in on travel days because of lack of bathroom access fear. Almost wetting your pants in an airplane seat once will do that to you! :lol:

Squatting vs sitting if you catch my drift...

Video #2 ... this did not set off my inner cynic nearly as much because it didn't have that familiar fad diet hype.

Obviously, eating once per day isn't practical for those of us who have had WLS. And even those who haven't, how are they getting adequate Protein? I am a firm believer that long term protein deficiency has some pretty severe negative consequences.

I also have a nit pick on the whole section where he justifies the one meal a day a plan with the paleo concept. That makes the assumption that humans stopped evolving since the paleolithic days, which is not true. IMO, Paleo is just junk science.

I actually had to tell the flight attendant I was pregnant. Thank goodness I hadn't had any drinks that flight, or CPS would have been waiting for me at the gate. :lol:

I forgot one of the best NSV comfortably using an airplane restroom on a transatlantic flight!!!

Like I'll boiled a pound of shrimp when it's cheap here and freeze them on a tray then bag them.

Has Trader Joe's made it to your neck of the TX woods yet?

Their Red Argentinian Shrimp is by far the tastiest shrimp I have ever had. After the first time I used this shrimp in a dish for an ex he refused any other type of shrimp, even at restaurants. It was a huge PIA because it's not always in stock (wild caught) and he was a pescatarian. :lol:

So I was thinking, am I being ridiculous not eating at all today for fear of not being able to make it to the bathroom? So I purchased a nut& raisin mix and I had seaweed Snacks on hand. No big deal, those are harmless right?

Wrong. I wish I didn't eat 😖

Oh no! :(

Is this only post sleeve, or have you always had this issue?

Well that is inconvenient. :(

Off topic, but .... I have often wondered if the speed of one's digestive track effects how many calories they absorb from their food?

I believe it does, don't quote me on this but isn't that the issue with people who have slow/low (digestive) motility

Not that I have ever heard of. Google only comes up with SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) as causing weight gain. I definitely have slow motility, but not really any other SIBO symptoms. I'll have to ask my gastroenterologist ex next time we talk ....hmmm ...

Well that is one of the advantages of having RNY, is the shortened time it takes to move food through the areas of digestion/absorption. It has been one of the theories of why people lose more weight with RNY on average. But I think they are re-thinking that position in later research?

@Green Tealael I'm so sorry you have to deal with that issue. If I were you I'd get a consult from the doc. My sis has that issue--has had it all her life. I too think it's like SIBO. :( It really is tough on her and I feel so bad for her.

I hope you can find answers! You should totally keep a food diary with effects added to it. That way you can pinpoint when and how it happens. I guess you've tried using/taking Probiotics etc?

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      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.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
