    Yeah, I am looking for ideas also. Today is my first day of puree. I just had one egg, scrambled, light cheese, a tsp of ketchup and some pepper. I ate about 3/4 and felt completely satisfied. Excited for tuna!

    First couple days post op diet

    I'm day 6 post op. Self-pay Mexico, Dr. Garcia. Just expect to not get any liquids down right after surgery, maybe your experience will be different but myself along with quite a few others stated that it is next to impossible, painful, constant burping when sipping etc. 64 oz of liquids in general, not just water. The more water, the better of course. I have been and still am struggling getting the amount of liquids and water I need! Don't be too worried, it will work out. The post op plane seems detailed, but I found myself having a million questions. Email and asking when you're there are the best, they'll promptly respond! Isopure is a good option, if you can stand it post-op. I thought all the flavors minus apple melon were so yucky! Water it down 60/40 or 50/50! Chicken broths... add pepper. The stuff at the Marriott (if that is where you're staying) is very good! Try other broths (mushroom, veggie, miso, etc) if you dislike chix. - Mariah
  5. I am the person whom told you to stop eating ****. All of you that are farther along have your ups, downs and inbetweens, as do us newly born into the sleeve world. There are struggles on day one, day 10, day 365, and day 43534, your struggle isn't special, it isn't uniquie, so please spare me your superior attitude. The people that you are calling negative and judgmental all have a few things in common: determination to be better, an Iron will and a no bullshit policy with themselves. That isn't to say you aren't, but where people get irritated is, it is annoying to see someone post something like what you posted. Why? Because it is very commonsensical what you should do. If it isn't, I shall help you: think back to when you got this surgery. Why did you do it? Think of your thoughts then. As I said before, stop eating ****, to sum up. I haven't experienced your "stage-specific" struggle, obviously because I am not there yet. So what would I do if I "fell off the wagon." Get back up on the damn wagon. Eat to live, do not live to eat. Be happy, live on.

  15. Do you mean to ask me or ask the OP? I am with ready4achange! Sept 9!
  16. Nickie! Congratulations! I am very excited for you!
  17. Hey guys! September 9th in Tijuana, as mentioned before. Update: I have been following my pre-op diet: Protein shake AM, protein shake lunch, light salad with some form of protein (chix, fish, etc) and a protein shake later in the evening if needed. It has been working out quite well, and I have been working out pretty damn hard. 1 hour of cardio a day (most days), but I have also been lifting some weights ---which has most likely slowed my weight loss. Should I stop that? It just feels so good to lift!!! ;D Anyway, doing well, surgery is THIS MONDAY! I am so friggin nervous, but SO EXCITED! I am however, a little nervous about post op liquid diet. I have noticed that Isopure is very popular, so I believe I am going to buy some today. What are all of you buying for your post op? I hope all of you are having a beautiful morning! CHEERS
  18. That is awesome! I am a little jealous!
  19. Very cool! Well, I will be having surgery there the day before you, I am sure we will run into each other!

    My Fitness Pal: ladyomnom I am having surgery in less than a week!
  22. Hello everyone, I am looking for as much guidance as possible. I am very excited for this VSG surgery (September 9). I am feeling a little uneasy for many reasons. One, I am doing this alone. I am getting it done in Mexico, where my mother had hers done. I have only heard exceptional things about all aspects of the journey there. The staff, doctors, drivers, the stay itself etc. I am 23 years old and am still kind of a baby when it comes to going out into the unknown, so far from home (Oregon). I have a million questions, even after doing a bunch of research. I suppose I will list some and see where this goes. 1. I am a smoker, and as much as I would like to not be, it is hard to quit. My surgery is coming up soon and I am quitting cold turkey. Any ideas to keep away from that post-op? I also do think once the surgery is done, my outlook on cigarettes will change dramatically because I feel this is a total reboot, but who knows. 2. How soon after surgery can I start working out? I have been planning on some cardio and strength training... I do not want to go too hard, too soon, but have heard even after two weeks of surgery one can go back to a normal workout routine. (I am signed up for a walking class in the fall, because I didn't want to go too hard post op) 3. Loose skin: should this be a worry of mine? 200-205 lbs currently, 23 years old. How can I really minimize that? 4.Best Protein shake suppliments? What to mix with to lessen the nasty taste? 5. I am a big baby and get overly nervous for a surgery. Although I know every individual is different, what can I expect post-op the day of my surgery, and day after. Pain scales, nausea? I am sure I will be posting more questions on this, thank you for your time guys, it means so much! Mariah

    Pre-op diet ---crash diet?

    Hi guys, I am a little ignorant when it comes to this pre-op dieting. I understand that it is to help you lose a little pre surgery, and also to show your true dedication. Is there anything I missed? And what if you don't do it? Or do it for shorter than planned? I am sure this is posted elsewhere, and if so, please redirect and link me! Thank you
  24. Yay congratulations! Good luck! Is it in the US?
