1. My plan for today is to get out of my office chair and move....walk, short workout, etc.

2. Drink 8 eight-ounce glasses of water

3. Eat small portions of food, beginning with breakfast (which I frequently skip)

4. Keep a positive attitude

5. Stay focused on tasks

Hi Jen
Glad you are doing good
Way to go. 8 lbs already
My pre op diet was only 4 shakes a day and a cup of veggie ....it wasn't easy but I lost 12 lbs in those 2 weeks .

All the thoughts you have its normal .
For me the surgery was a great decision .
You don't want yo back down now!!
If you go on a low carb diet would you be able to keep it up?
I am sure you have tried many diets before and like me didn't get the results you wanted....
For sure you can not pig out anymore but you will lose weight without starving yourself witch I find it's great

My protein intake is 75 g now ( 7 1/2 month post op) and I don't always make it , specially if I don't have a protein shake daily .
Good luck and stay strong

Pre op diet has been better today. 2 weeks started Wednesday. I'm on a 1200 or 1550 calorie all liquid diet depending if I'm at the gym or not. Only 50-60 grams protein.

Yesterday I was second guessing surgery a lot. Over knowing I will never be able to pig out on Chinese food and other treats. Crazy. But normal.

I did NOT eat a bunch of stuff before my prep diet. I ended up too tired to make fajitas which were supposed to be my last food for the next month. I ate some leftovers.

Yesterday I was wishing I had just pigged out one last time. I have heard from lots of people the feel good full feeling will be gone. I will miss that. Now that I'm on the prep diet I can see it as a high. Luckily it's not something I did often before. A few times a month at the most. But yesterday I was thinking maybe I should just take vitamins and go on a low carb diet instead of surgery and still be able to be a foodie who can get high from food. This is embarrassing.

I'm worried with thoughts like this I'm doomed too.

I have lost 8lbs since Wednesday and it all feels like muscle and water. I'm dehydrated and my legs feel like lead weights. I prefer other people's pre-op diets. Especially the ones where they eat meat and vegetables. I have cheated with tablespoons of peanut butter a few times. If it happens again I will have to wreck it and throw it out.

Today I'm not hungry like Wed, Thurs and Fri but I'm having some head hunger. Trying to justify eating some plain Tuna because my protein is low. People who haven't had surgery 100% DVD is 50g. I'm getting that so I need to smarten up. To.e to read my nutrition textbooks to be reminded normal people don't need 75grams. Only after surgery because I won't absorb it as well.

By the way does anyone else have a protein range after surgery. Mine is 72-95. I'm never supposed to go above 95 especially if I'm using protein supplements.

Hi Jen how is your pre op diet going?

From my experience about the carbs:
In the beggining you eat those refinde carbs because it's easier in your new stomach
My surgeon told me to avoid carbs as much as possible in the first year , my nutrutinion told me that I can eat some healthy whole grain carbs after getting my protein and veggies.

One the most important reason that I avoid grains is the room in my stomach .you don't have that much room to eat and you want to get your protein ( other wise you will lose hair and muscles and I won't even talk about nails)
After over 7 months post op I still have difficulty getting the veggies in
But everyone is diffrent so go to your own rythme and listen to your body

My plan for the weekend is to enjoy my family!! Now that I am working during the days and my hubby is working night shift, we see each other only 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening as we are coming and going from work. This weekend we both have Saturday and Sunday off and we are going to do NOTHING but talk, watch garbage TV, and enjoy the time together!!

This is our 75th Annual County Fair in our little town of Mariposa, CA (just outside Yosemite National Park)..... I will definitely get my walk on today as the family sees all the 4H and FFA animals the kids have raised all year, the exhibits of homemade baked, canned, and garden grown goodies, plus all the arts and crafts from young and old alike. We'll end the evening with an old fashion Destruction Derby (think cars crashing repeatedly into each other until only one survives) and a walk down the Carnival midway. Rodeo tomorrow night and we'll end the weekend with an Orchestra Symphony Concert comprised of local talent. It's a weekend of good friends and good wholesome fun!

My plan for today is to stock up my travel tote with essentials for work: BIG bottle of multivitamins (I am going to take my multi at lunch from now on), BIG bottle of Tylenol, B12 dots, beef jerky, pure protein bars, mixed nuts, herbal tea bags, Crystal Light "on the go" packets, instant decaf, and non-dairy powder creamer.... I guess I'm settling in and might as well have the essentials on hand.

It's liquids for me today.....I've been carb overloading (bad carb overloading) for the past four days. Protein shakes for breakfast, dinner, and snack, with Black Bean Soup for lunch. I think I'll do this tomorrow too -- sort of a mini 2 Day Pouch Test.....

Happy Friday everyone! This week has been a stressful week -- major project components organized and volunteers coordinated for a big build on Saturday.....DD#1 in car accident while away at college (totaled her car, no one seriously injured !!!Praise God!!!).....scheduling mid-Aug college campus tours throughout the state for DD#2.... and falling behind on writing my proposal for a 5K Color Run at the High School in October.....

I've stayed on track with calories/exercise, but haven't been sleeping well....I'm up every 2-3 hours and toss and turn most of the night. Sunday after church I will take a long nap!!

It to walk this morning, then clean my house (Wednesday is cleaning day) -- this afternoon I am going to work on a 5K Color Run proposal for the High School (I've been putting this off all summer). And, of course, stick to plan -- High Protein, Low Carb....meat and veggies!

My daughters and I are headed to their grandparent's place in the city to spend a few days. Gma and Gpa are on weight watchers together, so I don't expect there to be a ton of "junk" food in the house, but I have prepare a couple of big ziplocks of chopped veggies and four healthy dips to take along and share.

I'm still going through the trial and error of finding a balance of cal/protein/carbs/fiber/fats to keep me in maintenance range. I'm working on increasing my cardio fitness minutes to burn 200-300 calorie a day and just starting strength training to tone problem areas (I'm not a fan of abdominals).

I pray everyone has a wonderful fun-filled and safe weekend!

Thanks Connie! First interview went well -- the people I met are wonderful and joyful, and I only "wobbled" a little in my high heels. I went back in for a 2nd interview yesterday to meet with the BIG boss -- he is a perfect gentleman and would be great to work for. I do not, however, believe I will get the job. There is an internal candidate that has worked in the department for many years and should get the deserved promotion. With that said, if she gets the promotion, her position will then be open, and I would be happy to work for and support her. I find out next week what happens next.

No protein shakes for me yet but I defiantly have to start.
I am forcing and I can't get enough. I can handle chicken for about 40g of it .
I need to have a lactose free protein shake. I bought some bRs that the my nut suggested but I can't have them yet it has nuts and other stuff that I'm not use to it they.
Thanks for the recipe I'll try to find the ingredients here. I never heard of carnation instan breakfast!!
Thanks kaza

Kaza do you use any of the protein shakes? I make a peanut butter one that I love. I use a pack of the Carnation Instant Breakfast, a scoop of whey powder, 1 cup of almond breeze and 1 Tbsp. of peanut butter. Mix it in a blender and it is delicious and full of protein. It has 39 grams of protein over half my daily intake and I drink most of my shakes in the morning for breakfast, so I've started my day off in the right direction. I had a hard time with protein when I first started out because my new tummy didn't like meat of any kind. there is a protein bar called "Pure Protein" when you eat one of these it's packed with 20 grams of protein. Usually in the evening if I see I haven't gotten enough protein in I will eat one of these.

emoticon your doing great!!

My plan for today is to exercise 30 minutes on my stationary bike. And to stick to 1000 calories -- I'm shooting for 50-60g protein, 50-60g gross carbs, 50-60g fat on a daily basis.

My plan for today is to just stick to what I know I should be eating and get my exercise in!! Didn't do so well over the weekend. Some of that was intentional and some was time. I ate popcorn at the movies, had pizza, forgot to take my vitamins, got busy and lost track of time so I substituted protein bars for meals. Not the worst but so out of the ordinary for me to be so care-free about what I'm eating...not gonna beat myself up over it. It happened and now it's time to move on!!

Today I am going to concentrate on getting all my protein. Yesterday I was so busy with other things I forgot to eat lunch and I know I did not get nearly enough protein (or food). Not hard to forget when I don't ever feel hungry. Have to make sure today is better.
