Still stuck for a week. I can't express to disappointment.

My doc said to increase my Protein intake. From 60-70g to 100-110g and that kick started my stall. Mine was on 4/28. Started at 350 and down to 295 today

I'm supposed to get up to 120. That's almost impossible getting in my fluids, then trying to eat and drink Protein Shakes. Have any high Protein tips and techniques? I'm struggling.

I like to add Protein2O Water. It counts as Fluid and Protein. They have both 15g and 20g versions. I’m still at the 70-80 goal currently at 7 weeks post op. Fluids are still a chore to get enough in.

How are you doing with the nausea?

Better thanks! It's kind of hit and miss. I'm not nauseous with every meal and did backtrack a bit to soft food phase for a time. Slowly trying new things but playing it safe with the food choices and pretty careful not to try anything different while away from home.

I'm guessing all the nerves that were cut during surgery are growing back and coming alive again. So I'm feeling what I couldn't before. I'm actually glad for that restriction. It's what I signed up for. And I think I've come to accept the nausea when it happens as part of the healing process along with teaching me to slow down, take smaller bites and stop before reaching fullness.

I hope the best for everyone here and if need be, contact your doctor and see if anti-nausea meds can help if unable to keep anything down or blacking out. That's not normal.

      I weighed 199 pounds (90 kg) this morning! I felt accomplished and happy, and celebrated by going to the gym to lift some weights. Hoping everyone else out there is making progress, whether you are pre- or post-op 😊
      Today is 7 weeks and two days post-op for me. I've been through two stalls already, but I am sticking to the program. I want long-term success from all of the sacrifice and pain. You all know I mean!

      Tomorrow will be 7 weeks since surgery. Yesterday i found that I was able to finally drink more than a sip at a time. I am SO grateful! I have always loved drinking water and it has been my primary beverage for most of my life; losing the ability to drink a lot of it was my first post-surgical regret. Being able to drink more than a tiny sip at a time makes me feel so much more normal.
      I'm eating around 500-700 calories a day, and have hit my second stall. I have begun to only weigh myself once a week. I've made to the gym twice since surgery, but I've been walking my pup and walking at work up to 3 miles a day on average.
      I've also been using resistance bands and stretching. I'm not quite ready for twisty yoga stuff yet. Or jogging. I did do a 10+ mile bicycle ride last weekend with a friend to a coffee shop where I had a cold decaf coffee with half and half. That was another activity that made me feel kinda normal.
      I'm still drinking one protein drink a day, trying to hit my goal of at least 60 grams a day. Today I got 72 in thanks to a cold G Zero with 10 grams.
      My abdomen is still a bit sore in general. The way I understand it, the inside is not fully healed until 3 months after surgery. That means sometime around November 1st. This is when I will go on the forever way of eating according to my provider's plan. I look forward to that day.
      Oh! And I should mention that I learned about a chain restaurant that is in about 30 or so states. It is called Clean Eatz, and they have a menu that is friendly to we bariatric patients. My support group last night talked about getting pizza and flatbreads from there. I checked it out and it looks like it's both eat-in and takeaway. This is the first place I'm going when I feel ready to eat out again
