    It's not the end of the world if on occasion you don't get absolutely all of your protein for a meal or even a day. It's likewise no terrible sin to leave food on a plate uneaten. It can actually be liberating. Enjoy your vacations. Tek

    Add some soluble fibre (look for non swelling ones) to your soups, shakes etc. it will help make things a bit ‘firmer’. I used Benefibre for months to boost my fibre intake & help with regularity.

    C'est normal. I never peed more than when on the post-op liquid diet. It does get better.

    I found if I was eating liquids I pooped liquids. As soon as I switched to the ground meat phase, there were no more surprises.

    Get a good lunchbox that you can put in the freezer then it’s frozen so it keeps your food cold. If I’m too busy to eat my lunch I just finish what I haven’t eaten on the car ride home and my lunch box keeps it cold all day :)

    CPAP on Surgery Day

    Yes, take your CPAP. If you are kept overnight you will use it.

    How do you respond?

    My standard answer is “a lot” and if they persist I say something like “twelve pounds” then when they are like no seriously, I say “ok you got me it’s actually 13 pounds”. I can keep this up all day.

    Clothing? Oh no, not for at-home weigh ins. Same and time of the week, yes, but the only thing I am wearing is a smile. 🤪

    I am 6 weeks post op and have no regrets. I’m actually relieved that I was forced to change my relationship with food because now I can look at things and think “I’m not even hungry” or “that doesn’t even sound good” and I move on.
