Using My "Pouch"
Thursday, February 03, 2011
I have struggled, especially over the holidays, with following my proper diet and using my pouch. My "pouch" is the stomach I have left after my RNY gastric bypass. Even with surgery, losing weight is not an easy thing. Thanks to my SP friends I've located some very helpful information. One item is the "5 day pouch test", and the other is the "Rules of the Pouch". I was eating foods that just slide through my stomach. I've changed the way I was eating and now no longer feel the urge to snack like I was last month. Actually I feel much more in control. Last week alone I lost 4 lbs, with a total for the month of January of 11 lbs. up from the 5 in December. I did not understand why it was so important for me not to drink fluids particularly with and after a meal. Now I do, no more applesauce with my meat to keep me from filling up quickly! I feel back on the track. Thanks again SP friends, you've really came to my rescue.
Lots of Weight Loss Vibes to you all,
Here's the links to the information I found:
