Vegas Vacation After VSG Food and Alcohol Thoughts



Recommended Posts

This was me last year....exactly....well.....I was only 9 weeks post when I went....but I was told.... straight no mixers or champagne....slow to make sure it didn't sneak up on me....I found out in Vegas that if I drink....any kind and of sugar literally puts me to sleep....lol....but enjoy and have fun....almonds...and cheese....
Thank you I will be taking my own vodka and light cranberry and definitely drinking it slowly cause it will be my first time drinking when i go to Vegas so I'm not sure how my body will handle it. [emoji1][emoji6][emoji4]

When I went to Vegas what I did was take plenty of Snacks and Protein Shakes, when we would go eat I would order something off the menu that I could eat.. i drank but what i did was made sure I drank drank Water all day to stay hydrated since I knew I would be drinking at night and when I did drink I asked for water with vodka and I would carry my crystal light packs and put some in there for a little flavor.. I made sure I drank slow and with no straw

I just went this month when I was 5 months post op. It is very easy to get lots of Protein and Water in. There is a CVS or Walgreens on every corner and tons of health food options. I also took powdered protein and mixed it with steamed milk from Starbucks for my morning “coffee.” I drank some wine but probably not more than 2-3 per day. I actually lost 4 lbs as we averaged 9 miles a day walking!

I live in Las Vegas and most everywhere you go to eat on the strip the portions are huge. I have a friend who recently had the procedure and now that she’s able to eat more than soft foods she eats from the appetizer menu and gets full from that without a lot of waste. She eats a lot of cheese and drinks nothing but Water.< /p>

I couldn’t really drink a whole drink until 5 months. Now I can tolerate a few glasses of wine or a vodka and Water with crystal light added. 2 is my limit. After that is just makes my stomach hurt and gives me a headache.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
