    Re: Beginning to doubt VSG

    The only time I've really been hungry is when I'm PMSing, and I'm pretty sure that's just psychological. I'm not having any issues getting the food in, though. For the past couple weeks, I've...

    Re: Beginning to doubt VSG

    Definitely doing this this week. I had listened to the Dr. Vuong video about how you shouldn't go to the gym in the first few months post-op, but I'm going to give it a try. I had upped my cardio,...

    Re: Beginning to doubt VSG

    Thanks all! I do appreciate all the advice. After reading everyone's comments, I have already gone "back to basics" on my food, refocusing on protein first and reducing my carbs again. I'm going to...

    Re: Beginning to doubt VSG

    My surgeon does allow complex carbs at this stage, so wild rice, which has decent protein for a complex carb, falls within their guidelines. I had wanted to get back to whole food, plant based, but I...

    Re: any regretters out there?

    If it helps, I was given Zofran for nausea and it worked like a charm. The first few days, I stayed on it as long as I was awake and took it regularly, but I was able to stop it pretty quickly. I...

    Re: Beginning to doubt VSG

    Actually, lentils have a fair bit of protein, and wild rice actually has protein too. It isn't as much as I would get from meat, though... you are right about that. Most days I hit at least 60g of...

    Re: Beginning to doubt VSG

    Sure... so I am about 7 weeks post-op...

    Breakfast: One egg with a slice of low-fat cheese
    Morning Snack: Decaf coffee with 1/2 protein shake mixed in and one piece of light string cheese

    Re: Beginning to doubt VSG

    That's all very nice, thank you!

    I guess my frustration is that I don't know, or can't tell, if I'm "getting the hang of it". Nothing I do seems to make a difference, so I can't tell if I'm doing...

    Re: any regretters out there?

    I think it depends on the stage the person is at. I might not have regrets a year from now, but at 7 weeks post-op, I do. At this point, I'm losing weight at a rate less than I did pre-op, and pre-op...

    Re: Beginning to doubt VSG

    Still trying to shake myself out of this negativity. On everyone's advice, I did stop weighing myself. Had my partner hide the scale (for reals, this time) and I haven't found it, but I haven't...

    They hid it, but I always find it... and yeah, I'm going to the support group. LOL.

    Yeah - I don't mean that as literally as it sounds. I just feel like there are people who have been struggling to add foods back in, struggling to get more than 1/4 cup of food at a time, and they...

    Beginning to doubt VSG

    Hey all,

    I have been lurking on the boards - I don't have a ton of time to post lately, but I had to come here and vent because I'm having a down day, and starting to think that having VSG was not...

    Re: Can I really lose at least 10 lbs?

    Thanks! I am being less restrictive now because my two-week diet hasn't started yet. I'm sort of semi doing it as a preview and to keep my calories down, generally. Once I'm officially in the...

    Vitamins immediately post-op

    So it appears that my surgeon prescribes a diet of clear liquids for one week, then full liquids, then puree, then semi-solid, then solid... each for a week. But they've told me I can commence taking...

    Re: Can I really lose at least 10 lbs?

    Apparently it has to do with shrinking the size of your liver so your surgery is safer. (Also, to some degree, to prove you can comply with dietary instructions.)

    I get the wisdom of it, I just...

    Re: Can I really lose at least 10 lbs?

    I hope you're right... I don't think my surgeon would look at an 8-9 lb weight loss and refuse to do the surgery. He said he didn't used to check weight the day of surgery but too many people were...

    Re: Struggling.... sleeved November 2012

    I am a bit worried about this too. I really don't like even the Premier shakes - because I'm not used to sugar, or artificial sweetener anymore, they all taste sickeningly sweet to me. Even the...

    Can I really lose at least 10 lbs?

    My surgeon has told me that he expects a 10-15 lb weight loss before my surgery. Is it really possible to lose 10-15 lbs in two weeks on the following diet?

    Week one: 3 protein shakes (180-200 cal...

    I got my surgery date - 5/30!

    I start my pre-op diet on 5/16. It's going to be challenging as I have some out of town guests for the first week of it. Fortunately, for the first week, I do get to...
