Struggle moving to normal food?



Recommended Posts

Ok so I've started on the soft food but pushed myself and eaten other things....none of which are healthy and Protein rich. I now feel like I'm slipping into habits that lead me to surgery in the first place :( any ideas on good foods or advice? Having a day of feeling really fat and miserable now

Hi, did you get instructions from your nutrionist as to what kind of foods that you should be eating? If not please contact her because you really want to start this journey off on the right foot. You can also google "what to eat after gastric surgery" My team gave me a booklet and it had sample meal ideas, if you have that then follow that.

You went though too much with the surgery alone to start eating badly this early on. Please get the help that you need so that you can be successful. You can do it if you put your mind to it.

No pity parties okay...just get back on track. You got this ((Hugs))

Follow your plan or look it up. The guidelines are there to help you though each stage for the first 3 months. You can do this. Start fresh in the morning.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      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.
