    nikkiw218 got a reaction from clsumrall in Liquid diet   
    I had my sleeve surgery on Tuesday and am on clear liquids for a few more days. I am managing to get one Protein Shake down along with about 3oz of chicken broth and 2oz of Jello. Other than that, it’s all Water. I’m finding the water it a little harsh on my stomach by the evening, so I may need to get a little bit of apple juice or something to soften it a bit.

    Omg...day three was AWFUL!! I felt like the hangriest beyotch you ever met! It really did get better after that though. Except for grocery shopping for the family on Sunday. That sucked. I recommend doing grocery pick-up if you have that option.

    Today is day 8 for me and it’s actually not terrible at this point. I feel full after my “meals” and I did a weight check last night and have lost ten pounds this week! Talk about getting the motivation to make week 2 bearable!

    I’m doing GREAT! Sleeved 2/6/18 and as of tonight I am down 48lbs!!

    Right now I am able to eat between 1/4 and 1/2 cup of food per meal, three times a day. I do one Protein Shake as a snack and between meals sip sip sip that Water. I make it to the YMCA three days a week and am back up to 20 laps in the pool. Next week I’m meeting with a personal trainer to talk about adding in some strength training.

    The pictures are from October and a week ago.

    How are you doing??

    Had my sleeve surgery 2/6/18 so today is three weeks Post-op and I get to start the purée diet! For Breakfast I managed 2tbsp of puréed hard boiled egg...it still boggles my mind that that’s all I can eat before feeling absolutely stuffed. My energy is ok...not great...but I’ve been getting to the YMCA 2-3 days a week and swimming my laps, so hopefully that changes soon.

    My starting weight was 416lbs. So I was much bigger at the start than most of you ladies (though I’m told I carried it well). As of last Friday I am down 40lbs (20 during pre-op liquid diet and 20 post-surgery) and I am over the moon happy about that!! I have a LONG way to go, but I got a great start and hopefully the weight will continue at this rate for at least one more month (two more would be incredible).

    Glad to hear how everyone is doing!!

    My stomach makes some weird noises now after every sip of liquid! It’s weird! I think it’s normal though..my mom had the RNY 10 years ago and her stomach still makes noise constantly.

    I’m never hungry. At all. It’s really weird actually! I am planning to do small meals 5 times a day, just so I eat something.

    One week post-op today. I had my first check in with my primary yesterday and, counting the weight I lost during the two week pre-op diet, I am down 26 pounds!!! In 21 days!!! I am on cloud nine!

    The pain is almost completely gone at this point and I’ve started back at the YMCA doing a moderate 30 minute workout on one of the nu-step machines. I cannot wait for the incisions to heal so I can get back in the pool.

    How’s everyone else doing?

    Yes!! Haha! That is definitely the only upside to it. It probably is related to the fact that I can’t sleep on my side or stomach as comfortably yet. Thank you for the reply! I’m glad I’m not the only one. [emoji1]

    I have my 1 week post op appointment later today. Thankfully! I'm hungry and don't really feel all the restriction other ppl have talked about. Doing well with my diet though. Happy to be on full liquids, which includes cream Soups so hopefully the doctor will tell me the rest of this is normal.
