follow-up and my experience

Recommended Posts

Follow-up to this post.

This went away a few days after I posted. My theory is that I got a pill stuck (a large antibiotic) in my esophagus and it caused a bit of a burn. I took the pill before bed without enough Water.

Just took a few days to heel.

I'm now 3 weeks and 3 days out. Have lost just under 20lbs thus far and its been pretty painless.

I have noticed that my restriction isn't where it was in the first couple weeks but if you eat enough it certainly lets you know.

The biggest benefits are lack of hunger pangs and a built in portfolio control mechanism.

It would be easy to graze all day especially on soft foods. One must guard against that.

My typical day (though Thanksgiving and a big birthday party yesterday were exceptions looks like this):

breakfast: fage 2% yogurt (with a little splenda and some cinnamon) or Atkins Protein Shake ~200 cals

lunch: small or medium Soup or chili from soup place near my office ~200-300 cals

dinner: 3.5oz tuna (half of 7oz can) or similar amount of canned chicken, celery salt, a squirt of avocado oil mayo (Sir Kensington), and half of an avocado. ~400 cals

late snack: half a fage yogurt or cottage cheese. ~100 cals

This is the first time in my life that I've ever been able to eat "half" of anything.

I probably need to tone down the tuna at some point due to mercury.

Lastly, I can't get the water down that I need to. I'm just not thirsty. That remains an uphill battle.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
