    Those sleeved around 12/10....

    I was sleeved December 7th and my puree stage doesn't start until Friday, One night and one day away. I am bored of shakes and cream of junk. and I am very ready for food. I can't wait to try eggs and turkey sausage, chicken meatballs and refried Beans with cheese! This all makes my mouth Water just reading it. LOL Today I had a Protein shake for breakfast, Jello for snack, oatmeal strained, another Protein Shake for lunch different flavor, strawberry/banana smoothy, cream of artichoke, unflavored apple sauce. Total amount of protein so far is 63 grams. My doctor said make sure you have 60-80 grams of protein a day. This will help hunger and prevent too much hair loss. I use myfitnesspal.com to record what I eat and it adds up the protein for me. It's easy, you might want to try it. I have the phone app on my cell phone, but you can also go online. I wish you all the best!!!

    Wow! I am amazed our tickers look very similar!!! lol Yes, I thank god for this journey and I definitely believe we should always have compassion for others. God allows us to go through things in order to mold us so that we too may help and have compassion for others in the situation. I too, know what they are going through. I have fluctuated between 215 and 286 for 10 years. This is the first time I have gotten to 206 in a decade. Thank you Jesus!! Unfortunately yes, in many cases people do judge by looks. But we must help and pray for others so that they open their eyes and see what obesity can do to their health and for strength and courage to make a change. God bless you Mrs Gina!! Liz

    new here and surgery tomorrow

    I'm 10 days post op, I was sleeved December 7th. Each time you eat, it gets better! It is very much worth it. Every day, it' gets easier. I had a cough and it still lingers. My incisions are a bit painful when I cough, but just take your pain meds and you will be fine. Plus, I would never let that get in the way of my journey to reach my goals. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Today, day 10, I am down 15 pounds!! Whooohoooo!! It's all worth it!! I wish you both the best!! God bless you ladies!!!!!

    9 Days Post Op - 14 pounds down!

    Hello Everyone!! My start weight was 242 and with Kaiser's help, by the time I was sleeved on December 7th, I weighed in at 221lbs. Today is Sunday, December 16th, I'm at 207! I've lost 14 pounds in 9 days. I am extremely happy!! I thank God that my surgery and recovery has been great! I have been Christmas shopping all this weekend! No more use of pain meds since day 5. I'm drinking the liquids although, I am getting a little tired of them. I keep telling myself this is temporary and real soon and (at the two week mark), I will be able to eat moist chicken and very soft cooked vegetables which I love!! I'm very excited and I used to dream of the results but now it is real! It's really happening! I am on my journey! Thank you everyone who is a member on here. Thank you for posting blogs, and just filling out your profiles have helped me so very much! I got a whole lot of information from this site that has helped me tremendously through the surgery. If there is any questions I can answer, or any way I can help anyone. PLease let me know. Otherwise, I wish you all the best!!!
