Thanks for all the good wishes
I love, love, love this forum so many ideas,suggestions,advice it is absolutely fab to be so well supported
I’m 1 week post bypass tomorrow and looking forward to maybe having food that at least needs a bit of chewing!!!
Have made soups that I think have had a little too much meat content as it feels as if bits have stuck in my throat and had a few tummy pains so also think I haven’t properly learned to slow it all down yet but changing habits of a lifetime will take time, especially for someone who pretty much used to hoover the food up without chewing it all sometimes

Trying to use the time this week to get into an eating and drinking pattern ready for when I go back to work but finding it so darn hard to drink enough at the moment I’m only managing about 700ml and feel like I’m sipping all the time. With not being able to drink 30 mins before or after the food there aren’t that many other hrs of the day I can drink haha

Anyway generally everything is ok I’ve only thought ” what have i done ” 3 or 4 times this week but the answer is the same every time – I’ve taken steps to improve my health and my life and in the next few months/year things are just going to get better and better and I can’t wait.

Already nearly 2 stone lighter than the day I stepped into the Sudbury Clinic for my first consultation – happy days !!!

Hi Kimbo

I’m so pleased at the way you answered your own question – with 100% positivity!

Two stone lost already. That is phenomenal. You must be so pleased with yourself. I hope you are!

The sipping water all day thing can seem like torture to begin with but after about 6 months or so, it becomes second nature. My daughter hasn’t had surgery but she decided to drink as much water as I do because she saw how much my skin and alertness improved! She now carries a bottle of water everywhere with her and sips all day long. She is a primary school teacher and is acutely aware of the mind numbing effects of dehydration. So, she makes sure that all her children drink water regularly throughout the day to maintain their concentration.

This is what I love about what we all learn on this forum. It is transferable knowledge. Like a pebble in a pond, the ripples of knowledge are so far reaching that everyone can benefit.

Meat can be a problematic little devil to start with at it requires so much chewing. Be patient and keep practicing. I am now vegetarian post bypass as I simply cannot digest meat anymore. However, I hardly ate any beforehand so it really doesn’t bother me. There are so many alternatives to animal protein these days that i don’t feel like I am missing out at all. Whatever you are doing, it’s working so just keep going with it Kimbo.

Well done for your amazing loss so far. Can’t wait to hear all about the next two stone loss 😉
