DUMPING (HYPOGLYCEMIA) - I posted the following in response to someone else's post, but I decided it would be a good idea to share it with those who for whatever reason don't read that particular thread...

Protein powder, fruit, coconut milk, straws - 3-1/2 months out, slow weight loss, looking for solutions.  I know I need more protein, but my surgeon insists he wants us to get protein from solid food only.  That's great, as...

Bunch of stuff (follow-up visit, PROTEIN, NSV's) - I'm about 10 wks. out from my RNY.  Total weight loss since my consult is 64 lbs.  Total loss since surgery is 26 lbs.  For awhile, I felt some disappointment because I was hopi...

Just a little NSV. . . - Had an appointment with my PCP yesterday.  His office is in a hospital complex, and parking is always a pain.  Very hard to find a spot.   Pre-weight loss, I dreaded going there...

Lots of NSVs (for new post-ops) - Seems there are a lot of us lately who are feeling discouraged about slow weight loss.  I know my weight loss is much slower than I'd like - only about 20 lbs, in almost two mon...

Catching Up - My blog has definitely fallen by the wayside the last couple of months.  Finally had my surgery on 9/13, and I'm slowly - ever so surely - losing weight.  Surgery went off w...

Another NSV - We were invited to a ceremony at church for my sister-in-law this morning.  At first, I was thinking I wouldn't go because I didn't think I had anything appropriate to wear.  (Y...

NSV? Took a walk - This may not be a big deal to a lot of people here, but I took a walk today, and pushed myself to go much farther than I thought possible.  I forgot my pedometer, and didn't really...

Very discouraged - still no weight loss - I am so sad and discouraged.  Thursday, I'll be 3 weeks out from my RNY, and I haven't lost a pound.  I know I've posted about this before, and I'm sorry to be a whiner, but I just...

2 wks post-op & no weight loss!!?!? - It's 2 wks. today since my surgery.  Had only one minor problem in surgery - my surgeon attached intestine, looked away, and when he looked back, my intestine had torn away!  He sa...

Post-op Roasted Vegetable Stock - Rats.  I found a recipe for vegetable broth that sounded heavenly, and thought I'd give it a try so I'd have something for my post-op week of liquids.  Whipped it up last night, an...

One (or two) last questions! - Had my pre-op nutrition meeting with the NUT.  She was telling me what to expect post-op in terms of eating, and one of the things she said is that feelings of fullness, or having ...

Pre-Op Day 7 (Warning: long!) - The bad news:   Time to go choke down a protein shake, but just the thought nauseates me.  I'm a little hungry, but at this point, I'd just as soon skip it, even though I know I ...

Oh, YUK! - Tomorrow it begins.  My 2-wk. pre-op diet.  My surgeon requires 2 weeks of Bariatric Advantage shakes, 2 or 3 times a day, with one very low calorie, low fat, high protein meal.  S...
