    You are restricted from certain foods for certain amounts of time because your stomach is healing! It was cut in half.... You can't just put anything in there. Follow the doctor / NUT plans or you will end up with a leak possibly. Why risk it? Following my "own rules" put me in a place of needing weight loss surgery....learned my lesson for sure.
  2. Well it was supposed to say thank you for posting that!!! I am going on week 5 and needed to hear it. Blessings!!
  3. Be patient with your healing. You WILL feel better and the weight WILL come off- maybe not as fast as you like, but it will come off. Get enough rest but walk walk walk... It helped me more than anything else- even meds. Best wishes to you!!!
  4. Had my 3 week check up and 15 lbs down since surgery. I had a week long stall of losing and gaining the same 3 lbs.... Finally broke it this weekend because I upped My calories. Dr told me today to keep it between 800-1000 calories. My average has been @570 until this past weekend when I ate @700 and broke my stall. Hope you all are well!
  5. So sorry you are having problems! I had to go bacK to work last Tuesday so it's been work for almost 2 weeks now. I think the protein shakes were a huge help with me as far as stamina. Hang in there... At least you have lost a good amount! I will say a prayer for you.
  6. Soooo..... How is everyone?? I am just now on pure liquid soups and can start "mushies" next week. Feeling great... A little slow on the weight loss but I am fine with it....it's still coming off. Hope all are doing well!!
  7. Is that two more weeks clear liquids? Or do you get to go to protein drinks with milk? I sorta cringed when I read what you wrote, cause I am with you, the protein drinks are cloyingly sweet. I keep playing over and over in my mind what would be a good taste....still stumped! I think I may forever hate the flavor "orange"!Glad to hear you had a good report from your doctor....and hope your dizziness is just the bp meds. I was able to stop at three places (errands) and get my walk in, of course I feel like a drowned rat now, but I feel a real sense of accomplishment! Hope everyone is doing well! Clear liquids with protein drinks ( I make mine with Fairlife fat free milk). I have found that Muscle milk powder with that milk is less sweet tasting than the Premier Protein... That stuff is SO sweet it makes me nauseous. Hope all are doing well!
  8. One week check up today! My dizziness that I was telling you all about was a bit better today, but still present this morning. Dr said for me to cut back on my blood pressure pills to see if this helps. So, will give that a shot! He said I am doing fantastic... Will be on only liquid diet for another 2 weeks. Yuck! I really dislike how all of the protein drinks are so sweet! I use decaf iced tea as a "chaser" to get through them. I am drinking Unjury, Premier Protein and Muscle Milk. Hope everyone else is doing well! We can do this!
  9. I will be sure to! Talk to you tomorrow!
  10. Thanks for your reply! I actually go in tomorrow for my 1Week check up. I am anxious to hear what he has to say!
  11. I am experiencing crazy amounts of dizziness... Morning and then again at night. Keeping me from being able to get ready to go to church this morning so I am staying home. Woke up nauseous around midnight- out of nowhere.... Very frustrated. How long is it supposed to take to feel normal again??

    Only thing of my own that I used was my Eos (Chapstick) and a loose gown and slippers I wore home. Didn't even wear undies as I didn't want a band stretching Across my tummy. never used my phone- slept too much or didn't feel like being on it. If they won't let you eat ice chips, you can at least swish one around in your mouth and spit iT out.... Was my saving grace with the HORRIBLE cotton mouth I had. I wasn't allowed any drink for 24 hrs. Until my barium drink to cheCk for leaks. Best wishes!
  13. Miralax (30cc'S) is what I was supposed to take if I couldn't poo. Hope all is doing better now!
  14. I am getting in about 55 grams of Protein a day from Protein shakes and or unjury protein broth with out any problem. I am still very low on energy. Got out for the first time last night And ended up in the car with my husband finishing the Shopping... Very dizzy and a little nauseous. Slept on both sides and flat on my back for first time last night! So glad! I am having a very hard time with the Vitamins my dr sold me.... Makes me nauseous every time. I will be looking for a substitute! Check up on Monday Glad everyone seems to be doing well! Anxious to have energy back and feeling up to doing more!!!
