    Pickle Juice

    I get it! I love pickle Juice!! and I did have some on clear liquids.. just be careful with the sodium in other places and drink lots of water to counteract it!!
  5. No Need to worry!! and you are not at all crazy! Unfortunately, the only good remedy is time. It will get better everyday I promise... do your best to get liquids in now and soon you'll be moving on to real food.... it does get better!

    Incision Question

    I was sleeved April 22nd, and my big incision is STILL not healed... so I think that we are all different. but mine has been a pain in every way since surgery. BUT, it has been my only issue so I thank heavens for that!

    Soft foods

    My surgery was on April 22nd! I am down 29 lbs since day of surgery and 53 altogether! I really felt like my post op plan was very doable! The most important thing is to introduce new foods one at a time so you know what doesn't sit we'll! I am still having trouble with most solid proteins but I do a lot of shrimp, crab, and tuna

    Almost there......

    Funny you should ask! I just sat at the hospital this morning with my mom who was having a Nuclear Stress Test.. it sounds much scarier than it is...basically the will put in an IV and inject a very low amount of radiation into you.. then half an hour later they will take pictures of your heart ..then they will put you on a tread mill...get your heart rate up and then do one more injection and take pictures again! I'm not sure that yours will be exactly the same but I'm sure it will be very similar

    Soft foods

    For me I was on full Liquids (milk, soup, yogurt, pudding) right after surgery for two weeks, then two weeks soft food, then started introducing solids

    feeling guilty

    too funny!! IT's included for all!!! and I have to back pedal a little I do agree with Ms.Antiband..guilt can be a necessary evil to keep us on track..but I decided when I had this surgery that I was no longer going to beat myself up for mistakes...it turns in to seld sabbotage for me! so I accept the error and learn from it... let hope my resolve is as strong at 6 months as it is a 6 weeks!

    feeling guilty

    I don't know about you all... but I never imagined a time in my life that I would have felt guilty over 2 tablespoons of anything and 1 chicken finger. Isn't it funny how our perspective changes! Look life happens and we adapt and overcome. I chose this surgery because I wanted to be able to make my own choices still...and we will all have times when don't make the best choice...but we get to move on and do better next time.. I had them remove the guilt when they removed my stomach... stay on the path we will be great!!!!
  23. Has anyone else found themselves pushing food boundaries to see what they can and can not eat succesfully? It's gotten me in trouble... I have found a few sliders that I wish I didn't know about.
