I am 4.5 months out from RNY. I have lost a total of 125lbs since last February, 68 since surgery. I have been stalled for the past 3 weeks. I am getting all my protein and water in and my carbs are never over 60gms a day and my sugars are never over 2

I see a lot of people that exercise a lot and some that say exercise was not necessary for their weight loss or possibly even detrimental. I had a 3 week stall recently. I had a bad cold with a cough that wouldn't quit. I wasn't exercising. The past 3

A bit of a vent here.. On this website, I only see people trying their hardest to do the right thing. A few days ago, I joined a bariatric support group on FB because I like reading questions and answers. Any info I can get on other's experiences is gr

My husband and son have a stomach bug. I forgot to eat/drink all day yesterday. I realized at about 6pm. I sat down and ate 2oz of cheese and 1oz of turkey then drank 12oz of electrolyte water. I went to bed at 9:30 and woke up at 11 to my son throwing

Hi all. I am at the halfway mark of my weight loss. 100lbs gone, 100 more to go. I have been obese my whole life, since I was 5. At first after surgery, I did truly lack energy. I started to feel less tired at around 6 weeks. I am walking at lunch 5 da

I am 9 weeks out. The past 2 days I have given into my anxiety/depressed mood and eaten crackers, not just a few either. I feel terrible and I am terrified if I am doing this at 9 weeks what I will be doing at 20, 40 and 60 weeks out. Today I have deci

I still feel fatigued..


minaque2 posted a discussion topic 3 months, 2 weeks ago

So I'm 6 weeks out. I have lost 32lbs since surgery. I got on the scale yesterday, I weigh once a week, and I gained a pound. How is that possible? I walk 5 nights a week. I get my water and protein in and I haven't eaten more than 400 calories a day.

Last night I ate about 6 small bites of a pork chop. I thought I was eating slow enough, I definitely chewed a TON. Well, it was so stuck, I was in terrible pain/discomfort for 2-3 hours. I tried to take a sip of water but immediately had to throw up b

I'll ask at my recheck next week but was anxious to know! I just want maybe 1 small cup of half decaf in the am.

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 4 months, 2 weeks 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 4 months, 2 weeks 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
