A whole chicken in a day seems to be a lot at 3 months out. You have to be mindful of the portion size. Even if you can eat that much doesn't mean that it's ok. I eat no more than 2-3 ozs of chicken in a meal as chicken sits on my chest for a while and I am 3 1/2 months out. Figuring out head hunger and real hunger is crucial.

Wishing many success on your journey.

Lol you had me worried for a moment. It depends on the size of the quesadilla.

It looks delicious. I agree with Mikeyy be careful with the carbs. Once in a while is ok but remember you want to maximize your weight loss in these critical months.

I'm not sure what you're allowed on your plan at this point, but after I was a couple months out, I could eat more than I was supposed to. That's when I had to be really careful to weigh and measure things to be sure I was only eating what I was supposed to be eating.

I could not have eaten that much at 3 to 4 months post op, I do remember making low carb high Protein enchiladas around that time to 6 months and could only eat half. I rarely eat bread or low carb tortillas still because its hard for me to get it in.

I could eat that much at 3 months, but the bigger question is "Should I?" or Should YOU? :D

What is your quantity you should be having at 3 months? Cuz at 3 months, I think my total volume range per meal was between 1/2-1cup--focusing on trying not to exceed 3/4cup.

At almost 18months, I still only have a maximum volume of 1cup allowed--even though I can easily exceed that at any meal...

Just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD. Watch those portions. Stay at 1/2 cup.

It is on a carb balance tortilla only 4 net carbs! I keep my carbs under 20 a day...Thanks for the advise everyone

Yeah, you have 2 groups of peeps who count carbs: those who net, and those who do not--but mostly they probably only saw the word "tortilla" and extrapolated that it was a standard carb one.

I know I was more so interested in a response about the amount of food rather than what it was, but I will be more careful and not overeat again just cuz I can! I knew it seemed like a lot...

Yep, to this day I measure and weigh everything but I'm an outlier. :) And AR. ;)

      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.
