I have been eating 1-2 bites when introducing new foods to see if that dreaded nausea is starting. I then wait 10 minutes before the next bite, hoping I can tell if it’s gonna make me sick

Went for my first postop app with my surgeon yesterday. He asked if I had tried chicken yet and I said no I didn't think I was allowed. He told me that at this point it is fine to eat foods as tolerated. That it is actually good for the healing process to eat solid foods that stretch everything slightly as this helps to prevent contraction, over tightness and eating problems .

So dinner last night was roasted chicken (from the supermarket) and veg. It went down fine. This morning I ate a small bowl ( approx 120ml) muesli. That was fine as well.

Loving my bypass!

I’m loving it too so far. I’m making a ground turkey and sweet potato chili right now to try for dinner. Hopefully it is good

Hi gang.

I started back to work yesterday and decided to also start back at the gym. Needless to say, I was in bed early last night!

Also happening last night, was my first episode of eating too fast....because I was late getting back from the gym and had to hurry and eat to get to a booster meeting. OMG. PLEASE make sure you take your time eating. I swear to god I learned my lesson on that one and it was an awful one to learn.

Today is 2 weeks since my bypass and so far I am down 18 pounds! Pretty exciting!

I was sleeved 1/14/19 and down 30lbs but for the last week and half I did not lose any weight. What am I doing wrong? 😞

Sounds like you hit a stall which is common. I wouldn’t worry about it. Just stick to your plan

1 month post op now. Haven't weighed myself since 2 weeks where I had lost 40 but since then I was in the hospital for 5 days due to my gallbladder, had to have it removed.

I never had acid reflux but since then I do and its terrible. Any advice?

Also, since I was very sick during my gallbladder situation, I basically didnt eat for over a week and been recovering from that. Body and stomach seem very upset with me but slowly getting better. Anyone else gone through something like this?

Did your doctor give you a PPI to help with the reflux? Most will especially if you are sleeved. I had RNY but have a PPI for 6 months.

Oh no. That sounds awful. I would call the doctor.

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

        I’m new but I wish you luck in getting back on track. Maybe see a nutritionalist first.
