    Not sure where to start?

    How could having a healthy baby be a failure? Nope you are wrong you had a miracle, You have done the journey down and i think you should do it again. You are sleeved already but i would get it checked out, But i would start as if it was day one of surgery - Do the week of liquids, then go to the pureed, and go back to the old way. In the mean time you have the greatest reward. your son! So get healthy again for his sake

    Coconut Milk

    I look at every food as will it help my goals or not. There are no bad foods, just some unhelpful foods. Light coconut milk has the same calories as whole milk with no vitamins. It's not a good source of protein. I would look at almond milk instead.

    Coconut Milk

    I'm PRE-OP (Dec 9th surgery date) and I am checking with my nutritionist as well but I like to chat with my peeps in here. Do any of you use coconut milk post-op to mix with your protein drinks, etc. (Light of course) . I know clears are before. Just reading over my booklet again today. (LORD I AM OBSESSED WITH READING IT) I don't see it.

    post VSG CO2 gas pain

    The gas was horrific for a couple of days. Burping and heaving mostly. The best thing to ease it was simply walking about and sleeping with head and shoulders raised, could not sleep on side due to acid and heartburn. You'll get thru it it's worth it Sent from my moto g(7) play using BariatricPal mobile app

    Awesome! The longer you can keep this mindset during the WLM, the better in my honest opinion. I didn't want to dink around with the scenic tour of weight loss. Been there, done that, never got to goal that way.

    Photoshop contest! =P

    I was thinking they could add a bird body to the long, sweeping tail to make a phoenix to celebrate your rebirth.
