I guess I keep comparing my weight loss now to during the preOp diet. I feel frustrated. I’ve been going back and forth from 236-237 for a week now. I look at my food choices, how much I’ve been eating, and wonder if dairy is setting me back. Today is my 1 month surgeversary and I’ve lost 15lbs. I see that typical loss is 15-30 in first month. Perfectionist me wants to know why I’m at the 15 and not the 30. I look for causes. Could it be the cheese and yogurt? Am I getting too many calories, or not enough protein? Is it that I’m 48 and post-menopausal due to a hysterectomy? Is this just my body’s way of countering the already 49lb loss since December 2016?
I’ve emailed my nutritionist with my particulars and am asking how much protein should I be getting? This week I’ve worked at getting 100oz of protein; around a thousand calories. Maybe I should be listening to my body only and not numbers?
I start vacation tomorrow. That should help get my mind off things.
