9 months post op Just had baby!



Recommended Posts

So as the title states I became pregnant directly after my sleeve operation due to birth control failure. I just delived an healthy baby girl ( thank goodness)9 mos and 1 week post VSG. I took a break from all boards during my pregnancy as I needed to focus on having a healthy pregnancy vs weightloss.

I have lost 75lbs thus far and have about 30lbs to goal. I am so ready to focus on my goal and get back on track. Although I lost weight all thru my pregnancy I was encouraged to have a higher carb intake and now find myself craving them everyday. I am thinking a few days of shakes may help me detox these carbs and get focus on the high protien low carb diet my body needs to make it to goal! Looking forward to getting to know some other folks on this journey.

Thank you. Not breastfeeding unfortunately, my supply did not come on adequately prob due to lower caloric intake and my body being so stressed.

I'd forget the shakes and just concentrate on ditching any snacky treats--carby, processed junk. And I'd eat Protein first very dense protein, plus your fill of low glycemic veggies, healthy fats, and maybe a few berries now and then to break monotony if it rises up. ((hugs)) You did splendidly. Congrats on losing while brewing a healthy kid!!!

Oh and 75% Cacao chocolate Bars from Lindt. :) They are VERY low sugar and lowish carb in moderation and have a lot of magnesium. :) Combine with 10g of almonds and maybe a couple of frozen blueberries??? DAYUM hold me. I need a moment! :D

Just 1 square satisfies any desire for rich sugary dessert! Especially with its little friends: almonds and frozen blueberries. :)

Thank you! This certainly was not my plan but it worked out, thankfully with the help and close monitoring of my healthcare team! Your advice sounds good, honestly if I never drank another shake in my life Id be a happy girl.Thank you for your input.
