I would like to form a group for those of us that have had gastric bypass surgery. I had mine just over 8 years ago. From my lowest weight 2 years after surgery I have slowly gained about 25-30 pounds. I would love to do it all over again but feel with the right foods, I can get those extra pounds back off to feel my best and make my surgery a success. We all know it's not easy so help me out. Please post any recipes that helped you along the way and habits you have formed to keep you successful! Thanks!
I had Sleeve on July 22, 2015 and I have been struggling with getting my protein in. I so need breakfast ideas and easy things to make. I have lost 62 lbs since my surgery and that has helped me to get around better, but I still have some struggles, like back pain if I stand for to long. I can stand longer than I used to. Any help would be appreciated.
Hello all I haven't had my gastric sleeve yet but I'm so close. Just 1500.00 bucks away and can't for the life of me get the money raised or donated but I left that with the lord. Anyways, I have managed to lose almost 300 pounds in 3 years on my way to my surgery. I have alot of info. of tips and tricks and I also have some gastric surgery friendly recipes of great southern comfort foods I have grown up eating!
Hi everyone! I love JAP & I was looking at the different groups and I saw this one. I had my sleeve done on 10/9 & am struggling to find things that I can eat other than cottage cheese. I started the process this past April through the hospital here and have lost a total of 60 lbs, about 35 of it since the surgery. I am still having issues with swallowing anything, including water, but I want to find new recipes that my kids will actually eat so that I can help them to learn the right foods to eat now while they're young.
Hi I had lap band a little more than a year ago. They (clinic where I go for my fills) say I am doing well, but I wish it was faster. I have lost right at 100 lbs and still want/need to lost 50-75 more. Yes I know I did not gain it over night so can't expect to loose it over night. I am trying so hard to change my thinking about food but it is so hard because I love to cook! With my last fill 2 months ago I can only eat about 1/4 cup of food at one time. So most of my food that I can eat is about 3 to 5 bites. There are certain foods that I just can't tolerate, but now and then I still try and see if I can eat them. Bread is one that does me in every time, I do so love bread. Most of the starches I can't handle but I still like my desserts at night. I have learned that 2 bites is enough to keep me happy. I look forward to trying new recipes from this group and for chatting with others.
