Tespo Vitamin dispenser



Recommended Posts

Yes, I bought my Tespo dispenser about 4 months ago and I love it! We even bought the men's Vitamin pack for my husband so he's switched the way he takes his Vitamins. It's so easy and is gentle on my pouch. I couldn't take pills because they would hurt my stomach and make me nauseous. I totally recommend the Tespo!

Did you check with your surgeon and/or nutritionist? Mine wouldn’t let me do the Patches, and part of the issue was that the Vitamins were dispensed once a day instead of throughout the day, and some (such as calcium) can’t be absorbed in one sitting. Once a month sounds far too good to be true.

I have been unable to take Vitamins in the pill or chewable forms...I never could hold them down and quit trying. I got my Tespo 2-weeks ago and I love it. I’m finally able to take my vitamins. It has a orange citrus flavor that reminds me of tang only not nearly as sweet.

Its daily not once a month.

I've been using it for several months now, I take my Vitamins twice a day and my blood work came out perfect according to my Dr.

So you have to take two of the bariatric formula ones a day? With that are you using more than a months supply in 30 days?

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
