Told not to lose weight before surgery



Recommended Posts

My surgery has not been scheduled yet but I was told by the nurse not to lose weight because I am so close to the lower limit. I started drinking more fluids got 50 ounces in yesterday so I am used to drinking. What diet can I follow with out losing weight.

Thanks

Lynda

I think it would be a good idea to cut out sugary drinks that you usually have. Practice chewing your food real well and even work on having your meals without drinks. Start tracking your food and get in the habit of doing that, as it's an important habit to have. I'm not sure what your current calorie goal should be preop to maintain your weight without losing... probably 2000 or so?

Thanks KCgirl061!

I will definitely cut out sugary! In the recent past I did the Whole 30 diet, so I think cutting some things won't be too hard. I am already a pro at chewing my food as this surgery will be a revision from a VBG to bypass.

Thanks,

Lynda

Ah! So you have a good handle on preparing it sounds like. I live on the Kansas side of KC but will be enjoying a family vacation at Lake of the Ozarks this time next month.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
