  1. What do you consider cheating? I ate three shrimp for lunch and was wondering if I was cheating but I didnt hurt and my sleeved liked it...
  2. I have tried malt-o-meal. It is really good and feels me up really fast! I didn't have gas or bubbles but I would think the bubbles come from taking in too much air. I also eat with a baby spoon.

    Possible Popsicle Overdose!

    Wow that must have been some type of protein shake...I wonder how much did he take in...I am able to drink 8 oz at a sitting but my stomach doesn't hurt...I think you will know if you have over done anything because you will probably feel pain!

    How Much Was Your Surgery?

    I have United Healthcare as well but bariatric surgery is an exclusion...I guess it is because my employer chose that...but nevertheless, I got it done...
  5. I love your post and this is exactly how I feel! My husband had me laughing so hard yesterday at all the attention he was giving me before I left...it is funny and he knows I am not going anywhere. He was even showing off my picture that I took on my cell phone at an all guys gathering...LOL! Too funny...and its only been 13 days!

    Post-Surgery Visit

    I just noticed your surgery was July 3rd and mine was done on July 2nd. Did you go to First Street Hospital? I tried malt-o-meal today last night and again today and it was fine. It has taken me 3 sittings to finish one serving...LOL! BTW I had only lost 3 pounds and someone made a post to tell me that was fine because most folk gain weight. The swelling causes you to gain after surgery and your body has to adjust first. I know my clothes and face shows I lost weight but not the scale. I am trying to patiently wait on that! LOL!

    Isopure Sucks

    z3djinn...we used the same doctor...what a coincidence! I love the Bariatric Advantage shakes as well. I use 1% milk and I have the chocolate kind...it taste just like a chocolate shake. I think I will try to always have one shake a day until I meet goal!

    Hey July Sleevers!

    Hey I am checking in today is day twelve and I am doing great! I am drinking my fluids and I tried eating malt-o-meal which is like furina and my stomach likes it...I can only eat two or three bites from a baby spoon and I am a full as a tick. I went to the gym earlier and walked 3 miles on the treadmill. I have energy too...I am so glad to have this part behind me and now I will keep trucking along and wait on the results...best of luck to everyone out there!
  19. Awww...tear...THAT is the best feeling! Congratulations!

    Why Am I Starving?

    I am ten days post op too and today I tried some Malt-o-meal and two spoons of mashed potatoes. I feel full now. My doctor said I could try these things along with scrambled eggs which I havent tried yet. He said I would know if my stomach rejected it and so far so good...no wavy feeling in my tummy...

    I'm On To The Next Stage

    I wish you a speedy recovery!
  22. DivaK


    I had my surgery on July 2nd and my doctor gave me the impression that I was past the point of getting a leak. He just kind of phrased "you are out of the woods"...I am officially ten days out today.

    :/ What Do I Need To Buy To Start (Phase Ii)?

    buy some chicken broth or soups and drain them for the liquid. I bought a can colander. I also bought a blender in a bottle which I use daily to mix my protein shake with milk. Those are the two most important investments to date and I am nine days out.
