I'm in the pureed food portion of my post-op diet and I notice that I'm gaining some weight back. I admit that I have been messing up a lot with my eating choices. I'm struggling with balancing the things I'm supposed to be doing. I'm supposed to eat 5 small meals a day of 1/4 cup portions, drink a Protein Shake, drink Water and take my Vitamins.

I'm not drinking the Protein shake, I don't eat until later in the day, I'm not making healthy food choices when I do eat, I cant seem to slow my eating down to 15 minutes.

Does anyone have any ideas to help me or words of wisdom/support?

Go back to basics! you know what you are doing wrong. That is the first step, the second step is to go back to what works, and the 3rd step is to follow through. You got this!

Yes , take full advantage of this honeymoon phase. Follow your surgeons plan. It’s not always the easiest but it IS the best and you will NEVER get this opportunity window back. Once the honeymoon is over, it’s OVER. My friends brother told her something that is pretty profound and I use it often now. Paraphrasing but, “ losing weight is hard. Being fat is hard. Pick your hard” Good luck!! It IS hard but use this time wisely. And I totally agree, you GOT this 👍🏻

having bariatric surgery is sort of a last resort. Don't blow it. Stick to your program.

Try to stay away from any "pureed" foods that contain sugar or other carbs like Applesauce, etc. Get a Ninja and puree fresh produce and lean Proteins and you'll be good to go. Also, make sure your yogurts and Snacks are as fat and calorie free as possible.

Find what works for you. Try to make small changes. If all else fails try using this. It's what I do.. gives me a good idea of what and what not to put in my body.Screenshot_20190423-164233_Facebook.jpeg

      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

      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.
