    Favorite breakfast food ideas

    I am on solids. I was sleeved 9/1. Thanks!!! Sent from my Pixel 2 using BariatricPal mobile app
  5. Hi friends!!! So I had a revision from band to sleeve September 1st. I've read so many comments on here about people throwing up when trying certain foods, and eating something and immediately getting sick. I haven't thrown up once. (Not complaining). I haven't felt sick. But I feel like I can eat so much food! For lunch this week I was having 2 oz. of tunafish and a piece of cheddar cheese. I feel full and gthen then an hour later I'm hungry again. Wasn't that supposed to go away? Should I try eating more tuna? I feel like I can easily hit 1000 calories. Any ideas? Help!!
  6. Everyone says that you'll be constipated after surgery, but I'm the opposite. Crampy, painful, diarrhea! What is happening? I am 11 days out, and only on full liquids. Sent from my SM-G925V using BariatricPal mobile app

    Salt Lake City sleevers?

    I can totally relate! So I am just starting the pureed phase as of yesterday, and I found great recipes on Pinterest. Ricotta Bake (pasta less lasagna) Taco Bell has "pintos and cheese" which is about a 1/2 cup serving. I went and bought stuff to make that because I loved it so much! There are awesome pinto bean and black mean puree recipes also on Pinterest. Oh! And crustless pizza!

    Itchy around cuts

    Yes, itching is a good thing! I am 2 weeks post op and mine itch like crazy sauce. I sometimes just tap them since I dont want to itch them. Seems to help me! Good luck! Sent from my SM-G925V using BariatricPal mobile app

    I found that Liptons chicken noodle soup was soooo much better than just regular broth (I drained the noodles and my kids would eat them. Haha). It made me feel soooo full. Update us when you feel up to it! Yay! Sent from my SM-G925V using BariatricPal mobile app

    2 pound weight gain. Boo

    You are so welcome. Let the tears be happy tears! You have made a decision to be a better person, and as long as you keep doing what you're doing, you will see the progress, I promise! My surgery was a revision from band to sleeve. I lost just over 100 lb with my band, and I remember going through exactly what you are experiencing. Now I am doing it again after some medical issues with the band. Huge bummer, but now we can do it together!
  14. I got half my staples out yesterday!!! Woot!!! And was cleared to start eating cottage cheese. I've never really been a cc eater - any suggestions since I can't have it with fruit or anything? Glad you guys are doing well!! And good luck to those coming up!!! I'm 13 days out and loving it!!!

    2 pound weight gain. Boo

    Dont feel down about this. It could be anything from a little water retention(cycle), you had more sodium than normal yesterday, to a bowel movement! Gross, I know, but our bodies are adjusting and trying to keep up with our minds. We want the scale to go down each day, and it wont. Its just trying to catch up! You got this! And your doing everything you're supposed to! Keep it up! Sent from my SM-G925V using BariatricPal mobile app

    Salt Lake City sleevers?

    I am almost 2 weeks out (sleeved on 9/1) so I hear ya! What kind of soft foods are you liking? I get to start in a few days!!!
  18. I am 9 days out and having shooting pains in this incision. Its where my drain was. There is a little bump that I'm trying to point to, and it HURTS! I don't want to freak out and wondering if anyone else had this. I honestly think all my incisions have been doing pretty well, then today this little guys been bugging me.

    I had one the week before my surgury. Phew! But then the week after I had another one, and started a third yesterday. So 3 mild ones in 6 weeks. I am typically quite regular. I guess my body is freaking out?! But I don't weigh during shark week. I dont know if that helps you though. Just remember its temporary and you got this!!

    2 days post op

    I was the same - I couldn't really stomach anything till day three - and anything cold would make my stomach cramp like crazy. Day 6 (yesterday) I was able to drink cold proten shakes and sugar free pops have been heaven!! I have 5 kids and a husband that love icecream, so it's nice being able to have something with them! Did you guys have your incisions stapled? How are they doing? I odered vitamin patches! Should be here soon!
  25. I am 2 days post op, and when I sip anything, my stomach cramps so bad. Is that normal and when does that go away? Its making it hard to get my liquids in.... Sent from my SM-G925V using BariatricPal mobile app
