    Post-op Olive Oil?

    My doctor and nutritionist adviced to add two teaspoons to each serving of lunch and dinner. I love the taste so it works for me :confused1:
  3. I'm 2 weeks post op and I still sip. Before the surgery, my doctor explained to me that my previous eating habits would end and that I would have to learn to eat again, like a baby does when they start first with milk, then with creams, then purees and finally solids. We will not be able to eat the same way again and I think that's the good part of it! If we got to the point of obesity, we might have been doing something wrong. At two weeks, I'm happy that my body gets used to different ways of eating; i'm not so concious about it as I was the week before, but I know exactly how much is good each time i put the spoon in my mouth or the size of the sip...honestly, i cannot have a single complain about this wonderful decision I took. I AM FINALLY HAPPY!!! So far I went 1 size down; yesterday I tried all my clothes from the past when I was lighter (good think i never got rid of it!) and the ones I was wearing before the surgery. Today I'm going to drop them off at the donation place because I know I WON'T NEED THEM ANYMORE IN MY LIFE!!! Hang in there!
  4. Hello everyone! I'm just four days away from my surgery and extremely excited! I struggled with my weight for over 20 years and have gone through all the diets, systems, exercise programs, pills, vdeos, books, etc. and the weight kept coming back...so a good friend of mine encouraged me to do this (she gone through VSG and lost more than 80 lbs in the past year) and with the help and financial support of my wonderful parents, I will be able to experience my dream: be healthy and look great. After all these years, I am so looking forward to finally being slim and fit in nice clothes... My biggest question is how much will I be losing and at what pace. My BMI is 30, I weigh 182 lbs; my goal is 130 lbs. I'm 5 feet 5, started my pre-op liquid diet on Tuesday (10th) and my surgery is on the 17th. I only lost 1 lb so far. Anyone there with my BMI who can tell me more or less how much they lost and in how long?? Thanks for your responses!! Ruth
