Could be dumping syndrome. weetabix does contain real sugar.

Wholegrain Wheat (95%), Malted Barley Extract, Sugar, Salt, Niacin, Iron, Riboflavin (B2), Thiamin (B1), Folic Acid.

I’m too far out to remember diet progression. If you are on real food stage. You might want to introduce Protein and items on your plan slowly to find what you can tolerate.

This was EXACTLY my first thought while reading your post. I'm not familiar with Weetabix, but I know bananas also have a lot of natural sugar.

Maybe it was just too much sugar at one time. I know I can tell if I've had too much sugar. I just don't feel good. Maybe not the nausea/diarrhea, but I feel like crap for about an hour.

Aah! That’s interesting Healthy life, I assumed because weetabix is on my plan of things we can eat , that it was ok and that it didn’t have sugar, should have read the label ! I’ll steer away from it in future! Thank you so much 😊

You basically just had a full carb meal. That drives up your blood sugar, resulting in an insulin spike which dumps your blood sugar back down and shoves all those calories into fat storage - not fat burning. Cereal should wait until maintenance and fruit (especially high carb like banana) should really not be in your menu yet, either. Where is the Protein in that meal?

Sometimes its trial and error to see what your new stomach can tolerate. Take it slow. *smile*

When I initially stated to have fruit with natural sugar I made sure I ate Protein and fat with it. So I had my Protein Shake or a piece of lunch meat when I ate a bite of banana or berries. Now I can eat a few bites of fruit on its own at 8 months out.

Thank you . I will remember that . I didnt realise weetabix would cause so much trouble as it was on my list of my foods I could have , but I’m learning a lot from here . Thank you 😊

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
