    4 months.. How much can you eat?

    I'm almost 5 months out and eating just about 4 ounces at a meal. Sounds about right to me but, if you're concerned talk with your nutritionist. I'm doing high protein/moderate fat/low carb. So really after I eat my Protein there's not room for anything else.

    It is a tough decision to make. My doctor knew I was unsure and scheduled me for a RNY possible VSG. In my mind I knew I wanted the VSG because of the possible complications later down the line with RNY. The other part of me wanted the QUICK weight loss with RNY. My deciding factor was that I have a toddler and I didn't want to possibly deal with malabsorption and anemia issues later.
  6. I had a smooth recovery and didn't have anyone there to help. The house did get a little messy as I couldn't bend down and pick up my toddler's toys off the floor.

    puree stage?

    Yes, it's normal and it does get better. I personally didn't have scrambled eggs until my soft food stage but, I know all doctor's are different in what they allow. Now that I think about it that was the last time I had scrambled eggs. I use to LOVE them.

    What yogurt for full liquids?

    ^^The roasted coconut vanilla flavor(or something like that) is delicious!!! I have them once in a blue moon when I'm craving something sweet.

    Epic battle- Liquids vs Solid

    It's really not that difficult; having a plan will make it that much easier. Try setting a timer on your phone to remind you to drink your fluids.
  17. I totally feel you @@SoonergirlLayla! Not sure how I'm going to celebrate though. New handbag maybe? I've been lusting for the Chloe Alice tote. *heartbreaking price though*

    anyone experincing this

    I didn't experience this but, I'd follow my doctor's orders and stay on liquids for 3 more days. Take it slow and maybe stay on liquids/full liquids a little longer. We all heal at different rates. Oh and your stomach will continue to make noise for quite some time.

    I was dating before surgery and that has continued after surgery. Did the whole internet dating thing 14 years ago and I'm over it now. However, it did yield a loving relationship that lasted 2 1/2 years.

    What is your Pre-op Dirt?

    My pre-op dirt is going with me to the grave! All jokes aside, my surgeon didn't require one.
