Just wondering, I am at almost a year post surgery and I have been at a stall for months now. Has anyone not exercised much and still lost weight?

Looking for menu ideas for day to day. I know I need to cut down on my carbs especially bread :-( I still cant eat much at one sitting and I do eat 4-5 times a day from yogurt to Protein Bars to Protein filled meals.

Do you eat red meat or did you make the switch to turkey and chicken only? I want to break this stall. I cant do Protein Drinks mainly because I got burnt out on them from pre surgery and post surgery. The banana one is the only one I can get down these days.

I cant do the gym, I am looking into streaming the videos from beachbody.com.

Just getting frustrated.

I would say that I'm in the same boat by I'm not doing anything about it. I figure that my body is working things out and that eventually I'll lose weight again.

Many things have not returned to "normal" for me: sense of smell/taste; appetite; amount that I'm able to eat (very little still); not sure about my continued Hair loss.

The thing that I find most distressing is the change in my bowels. I have very little holding power (going #2) and have had my share of accidents, both in my pants or right on the kitchen floor. It's humiliating. What am I to do when all of the bathrooms are occupied and I "have to go"? I now keep several pots and pans at the ready, but it makes me wince thinking about pooping in a pan because I can't hold it. I've also had accidents when I've been out and about. I'm not aware of it at first, then I notice an unpleasant wetness and I realize that I also smell bad. More than once, I've gone straight from the car into the shower. I also keep a large towel in the car to protect my seats. If this keeps up, I might consider diapers when I go out. Sheesh.

My taste buds have changed that's for sure. I was never a big fan of yogurt and now I love it and could eat it several times a day. I have experienced "dumping" and it is not fun.

I know I need to cut out bread. two girls I know who gastric sleeve cant eat bread but not this girl. It doesn't seem to bother my new stomach :-(

I cant eat too much sugar, it will make me nauseous which before I was a huge sugar addict.

I just need to get off my lazy butt. I want at least another 10-15 off before the big 50 birthday in October.

      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.
