Are protein shakes meant to keep you full?
I drink a premier protein shake every morning for breakfast. They used to keep me so full right after surgery. Now they donâ€™t last long. Within an hour of drinking one Iâ€™m hungry again. I figure
Does it ever stop? Lol. I have long thick curly hair....well I should say I had thick hair.....itâ€™s definitely thinned out since surgery. My hair has always fallen out here and there, but it has really started coming out lots within the last month o
Does anyone still suffer from heartburn after RNY?
I finished all my omeprazole my doctor prescribed me right after surgery and I had no refills left. Figured Iâ€™d just see how I did without taking anything. Well my heartburn has come back
Iâ€™d like to find some high protein snacks for on the go. Right now Iâ€™ve been doing nuts, but as much as I love them there are only so many I can eat before I get tired of them. Iâ€™d love to find some good protein bars, but the ones Iâ€™ve looked
What do you all do for exercise?
Iâ€™m feeling pretty discouraged right now and angry at myself. This week started off positive. It was my first week starting my exercise routine. Nothing strenuous....just walking on my treadmill. My goal w
So I had my 3 month post op appointment a couple weeks ago. Met with my dietitian and therapist. Both told me I shouldnâ€™t be weighing myself daily.....surprise surprise. I was told that even though my weight is right on track as to what I should b
I know everyone is different, but what has been your experience?
Iâ€™m just curious because I am currently a size 26/28 and decided to try on an old pair of pants I had in my closet that were a size 24. Well that wasnâ€™t happening because t
Am I the only one who canâ€™t drink coffee anymore? Before surgery I loved coffee....I take that back, I was obsessed with it! I always started my day with a cup or two and on the weekends Iâ€™d find myself sometimes drinking it all day long. I prac
So my surgeon never discussed with me my goal weight. But from researching online, with my height, my ideal weight (or at least the weight that would give me a normal BMI) would be 145.6 pounds and below. Also, using the formula of current weight min
So I did a really dumb thing yesterday. I decided to try out this new smoothie place after work seeing as they had some healthy options on their menu. So I ordered off of their light and fit menu. I even asked the lady at the drive thru window if th
Itâ€™s been a real struggle this past month or so with the constant nausea/vomiting and then the pain. Was starting to think Iâ€™d never feel better and wondered if I had made the right decision by having the surgery. I came very close to losing my j
So I always had GERD really bad before surgery. Iâ€™d wake up in the middle of the night choking on stomach acid. It was horrible. This was one of my big reasons for having the rny over the sleeve.
Now itâ€™s like itâ€™s coming back full for
Had my one month post op yesterday. Since I didnâ€™t have any other symptoms other than nausea I was told it probably wasnâ€™t a stricture or anything like that and no other tests were needed. I was asked if I had any pain, but I told them no because
So Iâ€™m not sure what could be causing this? Had my surgery on 1/23/19 and the first couple days after surgery I felt sick which I figured was from the anesthesia. That went away. For the next two weeks I felt fine and had an appetite. Actually, I
Iâ€™m currently 10 days out from surgery and started my vitamins the very next day after I went home from the hospital. Iâ€™m taking the bariatric fusion chews. 4 per day everyday. I was told by my dietitian that these vitamins had everything I need
Itâ€™s really starting to sink in now that Iâ€™m actually having surgery next Wednesday. I almost still canâ€™t believe it!
My pre-op went well aside from something I was told today by the PA. She told me that if I have a lot of scar tissue fr
