A thread for us to share our daily menus!

To help keep things in perspective for everyone, let's try to note our height & weight (or BMI), gender, weight-status & how far out we are post-op (unless this is already stated in your side profile :))

Post as little or as much info as you want. If you track macros, feel free to share your Protein, fat, & carb details...if all you feel like saying is you had a really yummy taco, that's cool too.

EDIT: Anyone can play! VSG, RNY, DS, etc... β™₯️

K, I'll go first. Will try keep this first post simple:

5'2" Female Maintaining 8.5m post-op

1: coffee + stevia sweetener (2 cals)
2: salad (greens, roasted red pepper, cucumber) + 2oz pork & beef burger + vinaigrette (230 cals)
3: Chia pudding + pumpkin seeds + almond butter (161 cals)
4: Salad (greens, avocado) + 1oz pork & beef burger, vinaigrette (285 cals)
5: 2oz grilled chicken + 1.5 oz steak (140 cals)

This was what I ate yesterday. Today's menu is a Protein Shake and whatever I end up eating at a dinner date with friends tonite, and I don't know what that will end up being yet, lol)

Also...this is what I would say is a lower-calorie day for me (the burger I was working on was crazy filling!)

Ok, I'll jump in. My menu for the next week or so will be kinda jacked. I'm having some let's just say, "intestinal issues" as a result of the gut surgery a couple weeks ago so am having something I don't normally--a modified BRAT diet with lots of carbolicious nonsense! So this should be very interesting how it's gonna affect my weight and rate of loss, and blood sugar. My fasting bg went from 83 to 102 in just 2 days. So yeah. There's that. LOL.

My weight info is all in my left side area under my name and in my signature line. :) 133.0lbs this morning working on Goal #3 of 130lbs. 56 year old, 5'4" female.

Here's today's jacked up menu. I'm just not hungry and tummy is having issues so it's doubtful I'll eat until lunchtime and even then, I may not get all my meals in. I may be going to the PCP about it. (click to enlarge image)

B-decaff green tea

L-yogurt "protein soup" with bananas and blueberries

AS-chicken and rice Bone Broth soup

D-chicken and rice with green beans

BS-yogurt "protein soup" with bananas and blueberries

Walk 60+ minutes today.

5'2" Female Maintaining 8.5m post-op

July 22: 388 calories, 30g carbs, 19.5g fat, 37.4g Protein.

Alrighty, so I knew I was going out to an all-you-can-eat (self-cooking) Korean BBQ for dinner tonite, so I basically saved my day's calories for this meal...which sort of backfired as I didn't eat as many calories as I anticipated I would. (All amounts are approximate as I didn't have a scale on me ;) )

1: coffee + stevia sweetener (2 cals)
2: 1 oz grilled shrimp + 1 oz grilled chicken + 2oz Kalbi (short ribs) + 1oz grilled pork loin + 1oz grilled pork belly + 1 tbsp kimchi + probably 2 tbsp of added sugar in the various meat marinades (386 cals) (btw, got all this food in over a 2.5hour period.)

*****************************

Wow great choices from your meal out! It sounds lovely! And way better than what my day ended up being. I'm thinking I'll try today, but I may start entering my day retroactively. :) So today I'd post yesterday's menu. But we'll see. Today I may actually be able to stay on plan--yesterday needed to wing it.

Am having some tummy issues from the surgeon having to manhandle my guts a couple of weeks ago and I'm kinda being forced into a pouch reset diet to try to see if I can wait it out til my gut wakes back up. So it's a full liquid diet today and I'm gonna see how it goes. Boring, but should be filling.

B=protein latte x 3

MS=1 sf jello

L=cocomo joe iced Protein coffee

AS=bone broth

D=cocomo joe frappacino

BS=2 sf popsicles

Are you hungry all the time? Before I found IF, I would be if I ate higher carb. Now things are different for me...but I do find the more I eat and the more often I eat, the hungrier I am and the more fixated on the next meal event I am. What is your experience with this.

I saw this article on MFP:

4 Reasons Why You're Hungry All The Time

How many of them apply?

I dunno about #1 and #3, I don't see any obvious cause-effect of these in my experience.

For #2 (not eating enough) I find the opposite is at play for me. The longer I don't eat, the less hungry I get.

As for #4 (not sleeping enough), this I think rings true. I am hungrier the longer I am awake; also noticed that weight loss slowed down (or stopped altogether) when I didn't get enough sleep..possibly related to being hungrier therefore eating more?

      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.Β  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.Β  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. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No.... Β  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. Β  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. Β  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. Β  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. Β  Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier. Β  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. Β  Continued onΒ 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 β€œTiny 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!
