Hello Bill. I am March 9 surgery. I am still 14 pounds from goal (11 from normal BMI). To slow down the loss I have heard others suggest adding in healthy fats like nuts/nut butters, avacado, and healthy oils.

Hi Shopgirl. Yes I do somthing similar. Breakfast is my largest meal and every morning I eat:

Unsalted mixed nuts. 30g

Kashi Autumn Wheat Cereal 30g

Fat free plain greek yogurt 170g

One medium peeled boiled egg 44g

1/2 avacado 60g

Slice Swiss cheese, 35% reduced fat 23g.

I sometimes eat 120g of blueberries instead of the avacado. That is really filling. My two other meals are smaller.

Wow is that JUST Breakfast? 😳

I still can’t eat much volume. For breakfast I might get ONE egg in, but anything other than that is a no go. I usually just grab a cheese stick because I don’t have time in the morning. If I do grab eggs I normally only eat half of one.

I had surgery March 24th and just shy of 8 months later I am now 10 pounds from my goal. But I think I am going to readjust…. I think I can lose more. I still have plenty of fat left to lose on my abdominal area. 195 is the top number for a healthy weight for my height. I thought 195 was a realistic goal for me…. But I’ve seen people continue to loose weight a year out and that’s still 4 months away for me. Given that info and the fact that I’m still not up to eating a ton (I JUST hit the 60 grams of Protein on a good day. Usually around 50 grams a day) plus the fact that I still have pockets of fat ? I think I’m adjusting lower.

oh hey another fun fact: my hunger JUST came back!

I am retired. So, I am not in a hurry to eat when I wake. In fact, I wake at 7 am and have 4 cups of weak Decaf coffee before I eat Breakfast at 10 or 10:30.

I have been trying to slow down my weight loss. I am far past my goal and have lost a lot of muscle. So, I eat between 110 and 125 grams of Protein and workout in the gym.

Ah….. being retired makes a difference lol.

im 39 so I have to get myself and my two kids ready and out the door by 6:15 am. Hence the rushed tiny Breakfast.

im a tad concerned about transitioning to maintenance phase once I’ve lost enough weight because of how little I’m still able to eat. My drs want me on lower Protein amounts because my kidneys have trouble filtering it but I don’t want to lose what little muscle I do have.
i figure it will be a conversation to have once I’m at a point where I will be looking to transition and I’m just not there yet.

Yes Orinskye, you can injure your kidneys eating too much Protein, particulary so when you don't drink enough fluids, not to mention to cause gout.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
