Struggling to get in all my Protein. I can’t seem to tolerate the shakes since surgery. They don’t stay down very well and taste awful now. What is everyone else doing to get enough protein? Any good recipe ideas?

I hate sweet drinks so bought unflavored whey protein (Unjury, Isopure, etc) mixed with Water and broth. Tastes like a weird Soup but better than the sweet stuff. If you can’t tolerate whey, try other forms of protein. Good luck.

Surgery on the 6th of Feb. feeling great except in the evening and seem to get nauseated. Feel hungry all the time and having trouble with getting the Protein and Water. Afraid to try new foods as fear of the sick feeling. Also liquids seem to just rest on the top of my stomach and takes time to move on down, mean while am miserable. Anyone else have that issue.

This is tmi but I literally just threw up after about 45 minutes of eating less than 1 whole scrambled egg. It was just sitting in my chest(at least that’s what it felt like) I used to be able to eat a full egg scrambled with no problem. Last night, I had the same thing with some chicken that I’ve had no issue with before. I don’t know what’s going on. I can’t get a lot of drink down either. I have a virtual 6 week appointment tomorrow. Will bring it up then.

This is so weird cos I started feeling like I have a rock on my chest if I eat more than half a cup of Soup or more than 1/4 cup of solid food. I don’t hv any issues with all the foods but the quantity is miniscule and definitely e rock goes from chest to tummy and leads to being stuck 😭

I feel your pain. It was starting to warm up, snow was melting and freezing to ice at night. And now we’re having snow storms. With windchill it’s been around -27 C out (-16F). It’s hard to get out much and walk because of the cold, deep snow, and hidden icy Patches. Normally I’d go and walk around a mall or walking track, but everything is closed (understandably).

Weighed myself this morning and I may be experiencing another stall. I weigh once a week and my weight was the same as last week. I'm not too worried as I am following the plan. Just part of the process I assume. I’ve lost a total of 23 lbs since surgery (sleeve) on 2/27.

Anyone dealing with heartburn? I was on the acid reducer rx for 30 days after surgery. I finished the rx 3 days ago and then a day later I have this burning in my chest. It's not too bad just annoying at this point. I've never had heartburn so not sure if this is it

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
