    I know your pain. I am always freezing now. I take a blanket everywhere I go.
  4. Greet Puree and soft food recipes

     
    Hey, all I have scoured the net, groups and cooking site's for a pretty good collection of recipes that we can use during the Pureed and Soft Foods stage.  Enjoy!

  5. Heading into week 3

    Head Hunger and stalling

    Because I was more of a foodie than an emotional eater, I was hoping that the head hunger would be minimum.  But boy did it hit me like a ton of bricks this weekend.  I felt depressed and my first (and hopefully only) sense of regret.  I knew that having my surgery right before the Christmas holiday would be rough, but man this is really rough.  I didn't even realize how much my life with my friends and family revolved around food.  Every event I attended, everyone's home I visited, every gathering centred around food, and I hated that I could not partake.  And don't get me started on TV and advertisements everywhere you turn, It was like I was living in HELL.   My best girlfriends and I have an annual ladies sleepover in which we exchange gifts and catch up on what's going on in each other's lives, and it centred around food and alcohol, which I can not partake. so as they had their Nacho's and various other finger foods, I was there snacking at my yoghurt, or sipping on my protein shake.   I really felt like the odd man out.  And the worst part is I know I only want these things because I can't have them!   

    I also know that around week 3 most people stall. I am 2 weeks and 5 days out and yes I hit the dreaded stall.  I haven't lost any weight in 3 days and actually gained a few oz's over 2 days.  which I know is temporary, but still gives a small blow to the ego.  I know I am not the only person going through this, but it's nice to be able to just let it out.

    How many pills a day is everyone taking? I am a person who went from taking 2-3 pills a day, to 8 pills a day. This has been a weird transition for me. Anyone else weirded out by this?

    December 2018 Sleevers!

    I am in the pureed stage, but I am still eating to fast and taking to much in at once. I know I am supposed to take 20-30 minutes to eat my 2-3oz, but I take about 10 to 15 minutes. I think it's because I hate cold food. Anyone have any hacks or tips to help me figure out a way to slow down? I tried the baby spoon method, it kind of worked but not really.

    2 weeks post op

    I haven't worn a bathing suit in about 4 years. This suit has been packed away since then. It felt really good to see my progress when I put this suit on.

      The 56 Bypass

      Hang in there. Next time you head through the holidays, you'll be able to partake, but hopefully in a very careful, sane way. The days of our food insanity are behind us! We are learning a new, sane way to live, laugh and love!

    To replace crackers try Cello Artisan Whisps They come in Cheddar cheese and Parm cheese as well. they are very low carb and packed with protein.
  11. I am having a similar issue. I am 2 weeks post op and just started pureed foods. Today I had about 2 oz of refried beans for lunch and could barely keep my eyes open afterwards. It makes me want to go back to the liquids during the day and only eat meals at night.
  12. Well, the holidays have been rough! So many parties, so much good smelling food, and I couldn't eat any of it. I was bad over the holiday, at 12 days post op I ate the inside of a deviled egg (not the boiled white part), and on Christmas, I ate the inside of another deviled egg and a tablespoon of mashed unsweetened sweet potatoes which I could not finish. Even though my diet plan doesn't have me starting pureed foods until Friday. I ate slowly an added saliva when I would put the food in my mouth to thin it out more. I KNOW IT WAS WRONG BUT IT TASTED SO GOOD! and I was very satisfied and didn't feel sick or overly full. I haven't had anything even semi-solid in almost 5 weeks so that was a real joy.
