3 month mark

Sign in to follow this  


It's been almost 13 weeks since my RNY on 12/11/2015, and I had my 3 month check-up with my doctor's office/NUT on Tuesday. I weighed in at 173, which is 50 lbs down from my highest weight. AND I was finally allowed to eat SALAD, and I've taken advantage of that. I had no idea how much I missed the crispiness of romaine lettuce. Sigh. It is the littlest things.

The one thing that confused me was the summary that was given to me says I should be intaking about 1100-1400 calories a day. !?!?!? I'm barely making 800. I just cannot eat that much. I have no idea how I'm supposed to be low-fat, low-carb, high-protein when I have to hit that. I'm just too full after 2 oz of chicken, 1 oz of romaine and some cheese. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I don't use protein shake supplements as I'm able to get in 50-60g of protein per day through meals. If I do have a shake, it's a meal replacement because I'm running around and not wanting to stop somewhere.

All in all, feeling the best I've felt in a LONG TIME. I'm getting enough sleep, the vitamins I'm taking seem to be giving me good energy and I have a pretty sunny outlook.

That 1100-1400 calories are goals so don't worry too much - you're doing well with 800 at 3 months.  The only way I could reach that at your stage was with a couple of protein shakes made with milk.

I think you're doing an excellent job!

VicWytch, your posts are encouraging!  I am one week out from Sleeve surgery tomorrow and feeling pretty good.  Still in basic survival mode so not counting calories or eating real foods, but your success is excellent and I hope to continue to follow you and parallel your progress!  Thank you for sharing your story!
