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.

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.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂

        Your progress with weight loss is awesome and so is your garden! I think you should've became a horticulturist. We've really gotten into gardening this year and it's darn good exercise. Keep up the good work and I'll keep watching. :D
