Hey everybody, I have been in this change for my eating habits for about a week. (I didn’t want to say diet! I hate that word) For about a week and I do believe I am doing well. I haven’t venture into the gym yet. But I am going, I have just been so busy.
I was talking to someone the other day who had the RNY gastric bypass last year. We started comparing all the things that we went thru before our surgery and afterwards. I really don’t know what is going on but I feel like they prepared is better when I had my surgery 5 years ago. The classes about your eating and exercising. The vitamins that you need take were really cover in depth. I still take my vitamins, b12, biotin, potassium, iron and calcium pills everyday.
I aldo take a high-potency, chewable multivitamin and mineral supplement, containing a minimum of 18 mg of iron, 400 mcg of folic acid. selenium, copper and zinc, daily. I take the Centrum adult chewable multivitamins. After surgery you had to take two tablets daily until at least three months after your surgery, and then one tablet daily for the rest of you life.
I also take my Calcium pills on a daily basis. You have to take between 1,200 to 2,000 mg daily to prevent calcium deficiency and bone disease. I don’t know about anybody else but I like having the ability to walk. The only issues was making sure you broke the pills in half to help with absorption. You should take it as two to three divided doses throughout the day. My pills are a combination calcium-vitamin D supplement which we also need, I Also take a B12 vitamin 3 days a week. I am amenic so I also take a iron pill.
I am still on blood pressure pills for high blood pressure and Gerd medicine also. So I take these also. This come from wearing my body it ask those years of raping evening. To make a long blog shorter. I listen to the doctor when they told me what to do to ensure I have hair, teeth, string bones. I like living so I tried and make sure i take all medication.
That’s all for this post today. I would love to know what others are doing to maintain their weight loss.
Love, peace and Happiness!
