I have been having terrible craving for bread since 2 days out of surgery. Yesterday while cutting the crusts off my son's sandwich, I ate a tiny bite. I don't want to do shit like that. I know its a slippery slope. I'm surprised this early on the crav

On Saturday, I went to the Big E, a huge fair here in Massachusetts, with my 5yr old and husband. I drank 25oz of water in the car on the way there. I ate a string cheese. We got there and it was over 80 degrees. I drank 40 more ounces of water while t

There are lots of good protein sources for vegans but I don't feel like I could be a vegan this early after surgery because of the quantity of food you would need to eat. You can get lots of protein in much smaller quantities from eating meat and dairy

I am 3 weeks out. I can eat anything except, nuts, seeds, raw vegetables and dense protein. Those I have 2-3 more weeks to go.

So far, the only things that don't make me feel sick is cottage cheese and turkey. I have literally tried over 10 kin

I am almost 3 weeks out and have noticed since surgery that I have terrible under arm odor despite using deodorant. I have never had smelly pits. Is this some quirky WLS thing?


minaque2 posted a discussion topic 3 weeks, 1 day ago

can I drink then eat something puréed or do I have to wait the same as if I were having "real" food.


minaque2 posted a discussion topic 3 weeks, 2 days ago

I am finding myself extra irritable, frustrated and sad. I am mourning the loss of food tremendously. I already deal with depression and bad anxiety. I didn't think grieving food and subsequent anxiety would hit me so fast. I se my therapist on Tuesday

I just started puréed foods. I just did my plan for the day and it's 350 calories, does that sound ok? It includes light and fit Greek yogurt, scrambled egg, puréed lentil soup, protein shake and lots of water.

My stomach feels bloated and s

Things are getting a bit better. I am in less pain. This morning I got up and fed the dog and my son. Spent 15 minutes tidying up, then took pain meds and famotidine and rested for an hour. I got about 25gms of protein down and a couple ozs of water. M

They said it was ok if the first few days I didn't make my protein goal. It is really hard. I drink about 6-8 sips over an hour and then am so uncomfortable I can't move. I've been laying down for a bit. I am going to take a few sips of water and go wa

Hey everyone. I got sent home last night. I am in a little bit of pain. My insides feel heavy, sore and painful. It's uncomfortable to drink but I have been doing it slowly. It hurts to swallow pills. How long will it take until I feel better? I have b

I'm not really scared anymore. I'm at peace with my decision. See you on the loser's bench. Most importantly, thank you for all your support.

What stands out in your mind as that first, OMG, I couldn't do this ever before?


minaque2 posted a discussion topic 1 month, 1 week ago

I am told I will be in for 2-3 days. My list says I will start taking multivitamins on day two and also be drinking protein. Will these be provided by the hospital or do I need to bring them? I'll ask them too but I am thinking ahead. TIA

Yesterday I got final approval from the insurance company. My surgery is scheduled for 8/23. I ate my last carbs yesterday. Today is my last coffee. The next week will be meat, vegetables, water and protein shakes, then the week before surgery will be

I have all my medical clearances. I met with the nutritionist for the 3rd time today and she gave me clearance and the therapist gave me clearance 2 weeks ago. I have been in the program for 2.5 months. I have no insurance wait period required. Since F

I'm wondering how things will be after surgery. I know everyone is different but I'm curious about other's experiences regardless.


minaque2 posted a discussion topic 2 months ago

I have been logging my food daily for 2 weeks but want to know if I can export the info to show my nutritionist. TIA


minaque2 posted a discussion topic 2 months, 1 week ago

Hi. I am in the pre op stage for RNY. I will most likely have surgery in about 2 months. I have lost 50lbs. I went to family party yesterday and people were asking me if I had lost weight. I may be different than anyone else but I don't like it when pe


minaque2 posted a discussion topic 2 months, 2 weeks ago

So I met with the dietician last week. She wants me to start eating like I would if I were a couple months post op so I can get used to it and be able to figure out the protein. So, I am starting today. I wanted to run by my plan for today and see if i

I met with the nutritionist for the first time this morning. She asked me what my goal weight was. I told her 145lbs. She said a more realistic goal would be 190lbs and that would likely be as low as I could get. She asked me when the last time I weigh
