    Birdy18 got a reaction from Margen in Anyone Have A Relatively Easy Recovery Story?   
    THANK YOU so much for sharing your recovery stories! I feel so much better. I've been a total basketcase of emotions and nerves that hearing these unexpected positive, normal or hilarious (Butterthebean comparable hangovers, ha!) recovery stories just really helps to balance my perspective and sanity. Thanks everyone for the amazing responses and support - don't know what I'd do without all of you!
    What you all are saying makes so much sense, especially Dooter in the below. All of the pain and complication stories have stuck in my head because they are more memorable that I was beginning to question what the norm was, even if "I feel totally normal" isn't really a post you're more apt to put up.

    Can't wait to not hear "...but you have such a pretty face" said to me directly as if it's a compliment!
    Can't wait to rock the fashion and styles I truly love and that's fitting for a trendy 28-year old girl!
    Can't wait to not be the "fat friend".

    Birdy18 got a reaction from TamaraS in August Sleevers..what Is The Progress   
    Hi there! I was sleeved Aug 20.
    1. A typical day: 1 Shakeology chocolate shake with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 babybel light cheese, half a bottle of Powerade Zero, 1 Max Protein vanilla powder shake with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 2 oz unsweetened apple sauce.
    2. Other than the acid reflux the first week, I haven't had much nausea. I found out I'm allergic to the steri strips they used so taking Benadryl but really not bad at all. My energy levels really improved a week post op and when I added the Shakeology mix in - it has more nutrients than just Protein and is one of the few Protein shakes I can stomach and think tastes good!
    3. I've lost about 29 lbs since my highest weight when I went into my first consult.

    Thank you! I'm battling head hunger but seeing the scale move has been the most encouraging thing. I was an idiot and was overly enthusiastic in being prepared - so I have tons of Isopure that I can't stand the aftertaste. I'm using almond milk because it has 50% more Calcium than normal milk and after chatting with my NUT and fears of growing lactose intolerant because of more dairy in the beginning, almond milk is good for that.

    Sashimi is the fish without the rice. You can still dip it in soy and wasabi. You can get used to the lack of rice. It is pure Protein and is very easy to digest.

    You need a "Dislike This" button so I can push it.
    I also don't think it's strange. I lost 40 lbs before surgery, so I had cravings all the time. Much easier to deal with the cravings after surgery.
