Hi. I am almost 3 years out and am having problems. I initially lost 30 pounds, only to gain 10 back in the last year. I moved from N.Y. to Georgia. Then I got married a little more than a month later. I started school online and got and lost a job. I recently got a job as a Security Guard and it's basically a desk job. I no longer eat bread, rice, or Pasta. I eat potatoes occasionally. I had been using sugar in my coffee but have cut all sugar out of it. I only use Creamer or milk now. I have been unable to get my Vitamins or any Protein Shakes or any Meal Replacements in the last year. I am just starting to get back on my feet and need to get vitamins. What kind can I take without it costing alot? Thanks in advance!

Walmart or Sam's club gummies, Very inexpensive (even less expensive is Dollar tree Restorz gummy vitamins, or generic tablets to test out first)

coffee tip: Try using Protein Shakes instead of creamer or half and half.

Sugar tip: Completely eliminate all added sugar every where you can by using substitutes or consuming foods with substitutes.

General tips: try tracking foods again, separate eating and drinking by 30 mins, eat salads often (little to no dressing), read labels check calories count, eat only what you prepare for a while, stay active with a support group

You can do it, again 🎈

Do not take gummy vitamins as they don’t have the right level of Vitamins for bariatric patients. Instead, purchase generic versions of Centrum or One A Day vitamins that you can buy at costco (Kirkland brand) or at various drugstores (e.g. Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS) which often have Buy One Get One free specials.

I was told as a bypass patient to never take the gummy vitamins.

Makes sense,

Tablets it is!!!

Check out Bariatric Fusion. I was just on their site yesterday and they had 2 of their Multivitamins on sale for under $20 for a 30 day supply (120 chewables, 4 a day). There was an orange flavor and a berry. Look under the sale section of their menu. Everything we need except the iron!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
