    The struggle begins

    I can so relate with you. At 12 wks out, my "head hunger" is creeping back in. I think all we can do is take it one day at a time. Ive been trying to make sure i track everything and weigh everything I eat. Some days are just hard.
  2. (Im 12 weeks out from vsg and 60lbs down so far) Can yall tell me what you eat on an average day? I guess I just want some ideas and to make sure im eating the right things. Thanks!!
  3. Im 11wks out from surgery now and ive noticed my sex drive has greatly increased, almost overnight. Has anyone else has had this happen? Hubby and I have gone from maybe once a week to 4-5 times in a week.
  4. Im talking about giants ATT park in SF btw
  5. Ive lost some weight now and hubby really wants me to be able to go to the baseball game with him but will I fit in those small seats weighing 340lbs? The bleacher seating hurts his back and he cant do the bleachers so i guess im stuck trying to squeeze in. Im thinking about just flaking on him to avoid the embarrassment of trying to do stadium seating while fat...
  6. Im 5 weeks post op. My appetite has been returning more and Ive really been noticing that Im hungry. Im starting to feel like more food and less protein shakes. Im shooting for that 60-80 g of protein every day as directed. My surgeon never mentioned counting calories. Should I be worried about how many calories Im eating? When I started soft foods I was eating about 700-800 calories. Now Im eating 900ish calories on some days. Is that too much? One day I even creeped close to 1000 calories. Ive been eating 3 meals a day of about 4oz of food. Also 2 small snacks. Am I eating too much?
  7. What do you all order at Black bear diner? I have to meet someone tommorrow.
  8. Im getting a membership soon so i can get the better price on premier protein drinks... what else do you all like to buy there? What are some staples on your shopping list?
  9. I had my surgery on 2/20. While i was in the hospital I went 3 days without my birth control pill. I resumed it when I got home and started spotting. Three days later and im still having bleeding. Im not supposed to be on my period. Could this possibly be from the blood thinners? Should I call my dr? Im starting to worry about it.

    Too much water?

    Ok cool thanks!
  11. The paper i was given says my fluid goal is to sip between 56 and 64 oz a day. Im 4 days post op and it is about 5pm and Ive sipped on 70oz of fluid today. I may have a little more. Is it ok to drink more fluid than they say or should i stop drinking? At first i was having a hard time drinking it now i want to drink a lot. Ive been thirsty today.
  12. Had my surgery the 20th and just made it home today. Wanted to say thanks for the support on here! Everything went well. It kinda hurt the first couple days but now on day 3 im feeling good. Everything is going great. Thanks again for those who took the time to answer my questions on here!
