    Ohhhh... now I have so many questions

    Haha, brilliant. My goal was to be back at work just in time to help with the madness. I don't know what I was thinking.

    Ohhhh... now I have so many questions

    My job is mostly a desk job and I took 2 weeks off. I probably could have gone back sooner, but I'm glad I didn't. I think I needed the extra time to heal before coming back to a stressful situation (I work at a University and the semester is about to end, so we're swamped).
  4. Mmmm, I have been mixing Matcha powder into my yogurt and I love it. I can't wait to add more to it once I'm out of phase 2.

    What was everyone's first puree ?

    Actually that sounds awesome to me. It's like a Shepard's pie puree. I will be eating this soon. Except I'll have to add buffalo sauce to keep with my current trend. Sent from my Nexus 6P using BariatricPal mobile app

    What was everyone's first puree ?

    So, let me start with stating the obvious... I'm a bit of an idiot. My first meal was canned tuna mixed with buffalo sauce and a little bit of mayo. I'm damn lucky my stomach seems to like me and I was able to tolerate it. I've eaten buffalo sauce mixed with almost every meal since. I've just been alternating between scrambled eggs with buffalo sauce, tuna with buffalo sauce, and canned chicken with buffalo sauce. So far my stomach loves me. My colon is a different story... That being said, I just finished my lunch. More buffalo sauce.
  7. Yeah, this is totally normal. I dropped 35lbs in the first week and a half I sat at 330 for about a week without the scale moving even though I was only taking in 500-600 calories a day. Now weight is melting off me again and I haven't changed a thing. Just stay focused on your plan. Get in that protein and water and it will resume before you know it. It is hard to ignore the scale when it is giving so many great numbers so rapidly, but I've decided to try to avoid it and I recommend you do the same. I'm going to try to cut back to once a week instead of every day.

    Christmas snack recipes ideas add one

    I'm just going to tuck myself in here to see what comes of this post. Those sausage balls sounds tasty.

    Woo Shawana, you're a freakin rock star. You've got this. No doubt in my mind.

    New me

    Sorry, that's a question better answered by minds more knowledgeable than my own.
  11. You're the best Fluffy. Thanks. I'm going to make up a batch of that to tide me over for a few days.

    You may still yet lose it. I've heard a lot of people say their tastes change and my nutritionist says that it often comes after a couple of months when the taste buds change. So try not to worry. Right now focus on protein and water. I've had a couple hard candies since surgery and they seem to sate my sweet tooth. Before surgery I'd need to down a half a batch of brownies to do it in. So, even if you do eat some sweets, maybe the new moderation will do the trick.
  13. In my case, if I drank too quickly (which I did frequently) I would just get a wave of mild pain which told me to think more next time. I know some people will start salivating a lot and some will sick up. I imagine there are people with some horror stories, but I think most people have had a similar experience to mine. Just try to be mindful, and know that you will likely mess up a little bit here and there, but you should be fine.

    Which surgery did you do? From what I understand Bypass patients are more likely to have that problem. Even then though, it seems like a crap shoot and the dice land differently for everybody. I think you just got lucky/unlucky depending on how you feel about it.
  15. Umm, this looks super tasty. I'm on Phase 2 now, so I'm basically only eating Eggs, Cottage Cheese, and Tuna. Any recipe on this? Or should I just mix them together with a bit of spice?
