I feel like i can eat too much. Surgery was 10/24 ,,, i m on the puree stage. I had about 1/2 cup of cream Soup with 6

Minced ritz crackers mixed in ( was dying for some ooomph )

Seems i shouldnt b able to eat tht much.

My nut said 500 or less cals the 1st 3 months, w my nighttime Protein Shake, it will b about 550.

I m nervous off to a wrong path

Try thinning the Soup out with Bone Broth to reduce the cals and add a crunchy Protein chips or cracker instead of Ritz crackers if those are worrisome to you.

Measure and track everything!

Safe journey!

I'm in the same boat. But I had my surgery in April. I can eat so much now. I mean not at once though. I snack though. I can eat every few hours. So say my husband and kids get pizza for dinner...I can eat half a slice. Come back an hour later, eat another half. Come back an hour later etc....until I've eaten two or three pieces. I'm really struggling and my weight has stopped at 85 lbs lost.

Everyone says grazing is a sure way back to weight gain. My skinny friends never eat more than one piece of pizza

I'm wondering that myself. I'm still in the liquids phase, just moving into soft foods phase post-op only 15 days, so I'm eating about 500 calories a day right now and want to make sure I don't go crazy when I get to start adding food

My nutritionist said just be sensible - ur can eat 600-800 calories a day and try to get at least 60g Protein - I am 5 days post op and eating about 550 a day with 70g-80 g protein . I’m also pushing the walking though ...

Miss time is up , seems like U don’t really want to make the lifestyle changes that will get and keep You a normal weight . As they have told us , this surgery is a tool , not a cure . Sure u can eat gallons of ice cream or graze on pizza and get sround it . I ate a few Fritos the other day and had some ice cream - but u can’t do it regularly and lose and/ or maintain a normal weight

What are you talking about? I'm pretty sure cutting out pizza IS making the lifestyle changes necessary to succeed.....

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
