Search for a website called the world according to eggface. She is a wls patient and has shared many excellent food ideas and recipes for each stage.

If you are sticking to plan there really isn’t much more you can do to lose more weight. Everyone loses at their own pace. We all want instant gratification but, slow and steady wins the race ;)

I'm not a doctor and not a nutritionist, but I like math. What you're saying doesn't sound mathematically unreasonable, if I'm interpreting correctly (weight drops a pound every ~4 days or so). So, let's consider the basics and the math:

First off: Are you tracking your food with a calorie tracker (I use myfitnesspal)? When I don't for a while, and then I start again, I often find I'm eating more than I mean to. If you are tracking, then you should have a good idea of what you're putting in to your body, which is half of the equation.

Based on an arbitrarily chosen TDEE calculator (https://tdeecalculator.net/result.php?s=imperial&age=32&g=female&lbs=210&in=64&act=1.2&bf=&f=1), you'd be expected to burn about 2000 calories a day[1]. If you're eating around 1000 calories a day[2] for instance, you will only have a net deficit of 1000 calories / day, which equates to about a pound every 3.5 days, which is about spot on to what you described (at least as I interpreted it)

Exercising helps, too, but only so much. If you, for instance, are walking a mile and a half each day at a brisk pace, you'd burn about 150 extra calories each day (according to https://www.verywellfit.com/walking-calories-burned-by-miles-3887154 at least) This helps, but would only be about 0.3 lbs / week.

In short, 1-2 lbs a week sounds about right, mathematically. Think positively - if you can keep up loss that rate, you'll hit your goal weight in about a year!

[2] The program I got calls for 700-900 for the soft foods stage, but I'm rounding up for ease of math.

Just stick to your plan - that's pretty much all the control you have over your weight loss. Your body will lose the weight, whether fast or slow. I was a slow loser from day 1, and I ended up losing all my excess weight (over 200 lbs). I was very committed to my plan and almost never went off it while I was in the losing phase.

I only tolerated 1 shake per day which was 64g Protein. And blended one of these meals and ate 2-4 bites for dinner. I lost 22lbs my first month. 20190615_203416.jpeg 20190615_203421.jpeg 20190615_203350.jpeg

Thank you for the positive feedback. I'm just trying to help. I received some really helpful material from my doctors office. And the list is off the soft puree\blended list. So the dinners I actually blended and pureed and just ate as much as I could tolerate and wrapped up the rest and ate it alike a left over dinner, lunch etc. You actually learn to tolerate the taste as you know. Congratulations on your weight loss! Wow! I'm only a month out of surgery and getting ready to have knee surgery so the exercising is on hold so you know ........

I was allowed to do fork-mashed mashed white fish, so I did lots of tilapia at that stage.

I've just started my puree stage, so I haven't tried many of these yet, but here's my list of things to try during this stage:

  • Pea puree
  • Parsnip puree
  • 4 cheese mashed cauliflower
  • Cottage cheese
  • Refried beans
  • Pureed black Beans w/ salsa & sour cream or greek yogurt
  • Blended soups (Chili, Cauliflower curry soup, Indian peanut soup, Lentil soup, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Cream of mushroom soup, Chowder)
  • Cream of wheat
  • Protein coffee slushie
  • Mashed avocado
  • Mashed sweet potato
  • Hummus
  • Scrambled egg
  • Pureed chicken salad
  • Pureed spinach/artichoke dip
  • Pureed egg salad
  • Baked ricotta
  • Baked tilapia

I will also add collagen powder to many of these for added Protein if I think it won't mess up the texture.

Don't worry about the stalls at this point, it's too soon to worry about your weight and stalls will happen inevitably. For the soft food stage I existed on chicken noodle Soup, cottage cheese, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sugar-free pudding, sugar-free Jello and lots and lots of liquids

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
