  1. Wow... that says I need a 36 I, lol. No way. I was 35 in on the band and 44 in around the bust, but I have always worn a D or DD depending on my weight. The one I am wearing now fits like a dream and is a DD, I imagine they would just drip to the bottom of an H or I cupsize and leave the top full of air ; ) I also have to bend over and pour them into the bra... I see a breast lift in my future dreams.
  2. I love the top, and it looks great on you!
  3. I didn't really need any extra care or help. My husband wanted to hover/help, but I knew that the more I moved around the sooner I would feel better. I wanted to get up and move around for circulation and to prevent blood clots, and also to work out trapped air.
  4. I think things like eggs, chicken salad, tuna salad, Tilipia or other fish would be easy options for Protein even after the puree stage. You will limited to 2-4 oz per meal/snack.... you should be able to make workable meals until you get implants. Even cooked broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, etc... shouldn't pose a problem.
  5. 1 scoop of the Isopure has the best numbers. I personally like the Syntrax Nectars.

    Help needed

    I wasn't allowed Vitamins until 7 days post op, but I still had bad reflux the first week. I took the Omeprazole twice daily and it got rid of it. Did your surgeon put you on a PPI? I would call the office and explain your symptoms and see what they recommend.
  7. You will not be eating big meas of pureed foods you don't like. There is room for choice here. I didn't really puree anything. Progresssing from liquids I added things allowed in the "puree" stage... cottage cheese, tuna and chicken salad, soft scrambled eggs, refried Beans with cheese, etc.. Seriously, at that stage I was only consuming 2 oz anyway. A little egg for Breakfast, a few bites of chicken salad... they were a great break from the shakes and liquids.
  8. I will be thinking about you tomorrow!

    Help need breakfast ideas for traveling

    The Syntrax blend really easy with just a spoon, they don't clump or leave floating chunks like some of the mixes do. Yes, the fruit flavors are best mixed with water. Fuzzy Navel is a flavor that I see a lot of people like, tastes like Tang. The Cappucinno is my favorite.
  10. Buy some refried Beans... they are pinto beans already mashed. Nice source of Protein and Fiber. Heat and top with some cheese and salsa... or just grated cheese. Yum! Canned pinto beans are good if you add some seasonings. I like onion, garlic, cilantro, jalapenos... but I am Southern, and love the spicy and highly seasoned foods. Heat refried bean (which are pinto beans) and do a spoonful with some soft scrambled egg and top with cheese.

    I can EAT!

    Refried beans with cheese and yogurt were heavenly!
  12. @careya123 Not thick or chalky at all. The fruity flavors are great mixed with Water. The Nectars flavors are like Jolly Ranchers or Starburst. They have 24g Protein with 100 calories and 0 sugar or carbs per serving... worth trying.

    Worried about pre-op diet

    Variety is what saved me on the pre-op diet, and the liquid portion of the post op diet. Swanson Mexican tortilla broth, Mio flavored Water, Crystal Lights, Vitamin water Zero, Gatorade G2, Egg Drop Soup, Unsweet teas, flavored hot teas, etc... Syntrax Nectars were what I found to be my favorite Protein drink but the Premier Protein are also good. The first few days are the hardest, but you can do this.
  14. Yes. Search nprcowboy..... he went through the ringer, and is still positive.
