Good Evening,

I am currently one month post-op I feel like my stomach is bloated and full, and my hunger has returned more powerful than before. I’m having trouble eating to many carb, I know I should not be eating rice and bread, but I have been cheating, I FEEL AWFUL!! (Mentally, not physically)

I can’t have green veggies like salad, kale, asparagus for another two weeks and my body is craving a salad so bad.

Doing a better job at getting in Protein and my Vitamins, currently off all medications that were prescribed after surgery.

Working on increasing my physical activity

Anyone else struggling with these issues??

you need to white knuckle it and stick to your surgeon's plan. You aren't very far out and could do serious damage to your stomach. Plus if you're cheating at only a month out, you're setting yourself up to blow it. You just had major surgery. This is a last resort to lose your excess weight. Don't blow your big chance.

Honey. You've just simply got to stop it. Break the cycle. Make the decision. Get an appointment to see your doc, your RD and also get a referal to a counselor. Rice and bread WILL make your tummy expand. So what you are feeling is real and it's not too late to get a leak from a hyper bloated tummy. :( Please go back to your basics for your stage. It will be 3-4 days of hell. But after that? I promise it will be infinitely easier. But you need your team to help pull you out of this spiral. Please do it for yourself. Clean your house out of all junk!!!

You just have to follow the nutritionist's plan and not be eating all of those carbs. The surgery is only a tool and can only do so much, but you have to do the rest. Stick with Protein.

Look at how much you have lost in a minute month. Then think about how much more you could have lost without the carbs. Do you have anyone there to help you get through this? Believe me I know it's hard, but when you hit a stall like I did for a month your going to have to be able to push through alone or not. You can do this!!!

Yeah you may never know how good your weight losing would have been, the immediate few weeks are when we have our first
good losses and you may have blunted the Good effects. We don't always get granted a "Do Over" sad to say.😣
