Stretching the pouch



Recommended Posts

You will naturally be able to eat more over time, even without stretching your pouch. According to my surgeon, the . "stretching the pouch" rumors are not really true. She says it is theoretically possible, but you would have to eat massive amounts to make it happen.

I've seen a "pouch reset" diet that I'm looking to follow. The info is available on the Bariatric Pal Store site.

That's what mine said as well, but I can eat alot of food. I lost weight, but not as much as i thought I would. And have recently gained around 25 lbs. I always seem to be hungry.

Have you started following that diet? It may be something I have to do. I didnt see anything about it on this website. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
