    Whew, I had a few minutes before work and figured I could update the list. I was in a hurry so I may have missed folks or messed up in other ways. If anyone sees any errors, let me know!

    MinWin had taken over updating the list but she went away for the holiday and I was working. I will have a busy week but if MinWin doesn't get to it, I will.

    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    I agree. I didn't buy any to try. I bought these for my 2 week preop. They had such good reviews, I thought that's all I needed. Glad my friend let me sample the Unjury before buying it. Very possible I won't like the Unjury after surgery but I hope I do! The Swanson stuff smelled amazing! I was surprised that it tasted so different. I could see how it would be amazing in a soup, just didn't like it by itself.

    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    I started mine of Saturday and it is going surprisingly well. I had enough time to wrap my head around it. I have found that I really don't like the Body Fortress Whey protein in Strawberry from Wal-Mart (my NUT suggested it). I also really don't like the Premier Protein from Sams (a LOT of people on here like it and I was sure it would be wonderful!). I have found that I LOVE Unjury Chocolate Splendor. I also have had chicken broth made with Better Than Boullion paste. Today I tried the Swanson Infused broth Mexican Tortilla, and really, really disliked it. I also generally don't like yogurt but can eat it when necessary. However, buying the light versions, bleh. I tried the Dannon Light and Fit and the Dannon Light and Fit Greek, and really don't like either. So far I am happy with Unjury Chocolate Splendor shakes, unsweetened applesauce, chicken broth and lots of water. Fortunately I don't need a wide variety of foods.

    Don't forget to take your 'before' pics tonight and measurements! That way, during stalls, you can check your measurements and see that you really are progressing!

    You can get it at www.Unjury.com or amazon. It looks like it might be cheaper on Unjury.com

    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    I know the preop is very hard for most people. Just to give some hope, it has been much easier for me than anticipated. Even though I hated my first 2 shakes (different brands) and don't like yogurt in general, much less the lower calorie ones,, it has still been easy for me to chug along and get it done. I'm thankful my third shake option was way more tasty. I'm fortunate in that I'm not an emotional eater, don't particularly eat a lot if sweets or snack much. I just generally over ate at my meals and drank sodas/sweet tea. Very thankful to be this much closer to surgery date!

    Wow, the Unjury chocolate is soooo much better (to me) than the Premier Protein! I will finish what I bought, though.

    No experience yet but I've read that the Unjury unflavored is good.

    I'm from El Paso! I grew up there! I could tell you some great places to eat! Lol. I was last there in 2011 for my high school reunion.

    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    I'm going to email my NUT on Monday and ask if the Unjury chicken broth flavored protein is okay. My friend gave me some of that too. You can probably add the unflavored protein powder to things. I'm allowed SF jello and pudding, so pudding unflavored powder in those would be okay. I've just never been a fan of artificial sweetener and I can taste that over everything else! I wish my plan had the low carb, high protein because I could do that much easier, but it doesn't so I will push along, taking a deep breath and gulping down my shakes! lol If you already like the premier and Dannon Light n Fit x2 protein yogurt, seems like you should be just fine!

    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    Ugh, so today is my first day of liquids. It's fine, just not finding the shakes tasty and I don't generally like yogurt or artificial sweetners, so.....lol As far as hunger, it's fine, I can manage. Of course I WANT a bunch of stuff, but I think I'll do okay abstaining. I do have a headache and that will be amplified on Monday because of TOM so, that'll be fun. I'm excited because this is one more step closer to surgery even though it's not particulalry enjoyable. I will probably lose 10 pounds by tomorrow in water weight if my bathroom habits are any indication. Fortunately we were staying home today as I have to go every hour at least! So far I've tried the Body Fortress Strawberry because reviews said it tasted like Nestle Quik and it doesn't. I also had a Premier Protein chocolate. Didn't like that either. I've had a Dannon Light and Fit x2 protein Greek peach yogurt, blah. Unsweetened applesauce and Better Than Boullion Chicken broth were both the tastiest things I've had today. Gulping down the shake was best followed by water (although I won't be able to do that after surgery!) I've had 48 ounces of water so far. My friend gave me some samples of her Unjury Chocolate and Strawberry. I will try those tomorrow. Official starting weight was 309. Hopefully the last time the scale reads that!

    So sorry to hear that. That is a miserable feeling! I hope they have some good advice for you!

    I wonder if you could have a whey intolerance or lactose intolerance? Milk is usually constipating so if it isn't, maybe there is an intolerance to one of the products? Is it terrible or just annoying?

    I'm on day 10 of my pre op diet and have had stomach issues the whole time. Not sure if it's normal ... That doesn't sound good! Anything terrible or just different?

    Hi Boomersmomma! The link is throughout the thread but also should be in the very first message in the first page.

    NewAshes is the one who started the private group and so she has to let you in. When you add her as a friend, she will add you to the private group for Dec 2013 sleevers.
  25. Well, I'm planning on the using the hiatal hernia excuse for surgery. Along those lines, I'm planning to say I need a liquid and then bland diet afterwards. I will then say that the liquids and bland diet started an initial weight loss and since I was getting around easier, I decided to take advantage of that and start exercising again.
