I know that I should just resist the urge to snack but I can't seem to do it lately. What kind of snacks are you all eating right now? I'm 8 months post op and still trying to get to goal but I'm missing fruit big time. What are everyone's thoughts on

Hi all!

I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU for all of the love, support and reality checks you have all given me these last many days. Really and truly from the bottom of my heart, I am ever grateful for everyone's input and I can

First week back on track and I'm having big time night cravings. Pretty much anything crunchy and salty or chocolate. So sick of yogurt and sf jello and protein milkshakes etc. I need texture and crunch! Haha does anyone have a healthy go-to? I want to

I am STRUGGLING big time! My diet/lifestyle choices have been awful lately. I'm working on getting back on track but it's been so hard. I hit a 6 week stall and I am having the hardest time staying motivated and not just throwing my arms up and saying

I've been avoiding OH for over a month now because I'm so ashamed of myself and I hate having to ask for help. Ever since I've been back from my vacation I haven't been able to get back on track. I know what I need to do and I have all the tools to do

3 months out! What is everyone else eating at this stage? What should I be eating? Need more fiber and nutrients in my diet but everything is centered around protein. What does a day on your 3 month menu look like? Curious to see what everyone else is

Does anyone else have issues with red meat? I have tried just about everything. I chew and chew and chew! For whatever reason I just can't handle it anymore. Doesn't matter how it's prepared or what kind of sauce I have with it to moisten it up, I just

I'm so excited that we're taking on this journey together! I couldn't have asked for a better example to follow -- the fact that you did this all on your own, without much guidance, is just proof of how strong and determined you are. I'm so proud of you and I love you more than words can explain! Don't ever doubt your strength or your beauty, because if you could see yourself the way I see you-- you'd feel like a million bucks every second of everyday. Love you to the moon and back!

Did/does anyone else have skin issues post-op?! I'm going crazy with the issues that I've had the last month. I'm just over two months out and my skin is drier than it has ever been and my cheeks have this tiny rash. It all started about a month after

I did it! FINALLLLLY ordered my patches - multi vit, calcium/d3 and iron.. Was almost going to order the B12 but I noticed that the multi already has that in it. Does anyone have any input on having or not having the B12 patch? Also, what does everyone

Hey everybody!

I was going to ask this question on the diet/nutrition forum but there doesn't seem to be a ton of activity over there.. sooo here I am :)

Does anyone know of a good shake alternative to the premier protein shakes? I thin


Mandi87 posted a discussion topic 11 months, 2 weeks ago

well, I've been stalled on weight loss for going on week three now.. I've been eating pretty good (I think) and my one little treat when I absolutely can't stand not having something has been these little russel stover sugar free peanut butter cups. I

I'm just a couple days away from being 8 weeks out and my doctor has cleared me for pretty much all exercise at this point so I've been doing Jilian Michaels' "30 day shred" DVD. It's got strength, cardio and ab work so I feel like it's pretty well rou

Hi all!

I posted this in the general forum and several people recommended that I ask everyone in the RNY group so I'm going to copy and paste my original below. Any info, help, suggestions would be great! 👇

ok, guys.. I'm feeling super lost right now. I'm 6 weeks post op (rny) and I feel like my doctor gave me absolutely no information or tools for success. I've talked to several people and they've all said that their doctors or bariatric centers have the


Mandi87 posted a discussion topic 1 year, 1 month ago

I'm confused. Can somebody shed some knowledge on the protein powders and drinks for me? People keep telling me to double check the protein shakes to see how long they last before they breakdown because then it's a waste to even consume them since it i

I'm only 4 or 5 days post op and I just can't seem to get enough fluid in my body. I know that I can't just guzzle my usual 80/90 ounces in as easily as before surgery but I'm really struggling to feel hydrated enough. I feel weak and groggy which I ex
