  1. Yuck I could not even look at another Protein Shake post op because I had so many pre-op leading to my surgery. Not that its not good for you of course do not get me wrong! I know it is highly recommended but if you can stomach it good luck because I could not!! I just had a lot of sugar free Jello and Tomato Soup. Pretty much all liquid based. I really could not even eat all of that I would get full so quickly. My first month food was pretty much non existent to me. I don't think I could look at sugar free jello ever the same way again :D

  2. Hi everyone,

    I just want to say this has been quite the amazing journey thus far. December 18th 2018 I went into my surgery at 285 pounds. 8 1/2 months ago was the biggest decision and biggest step I ever took towards changing my life. For the past 8 years I was a very happy and unhealthy person. Gradually becoming more and more obese by the day. I truly thank my family to opening up my eyes as to how unhappy and unhealthy I was. I first went into my doctors office at a very unhappy and unhealthy 304 pounds. My pre-op diet of Protein Shakes for 2 weeks helped me get down to 285 just in time for my surgery. I am now today 167 pounds as of this morning. I have not been in the 160's since my teens and I am now 27. I still want to lose another 37 pounds to reach my goal weight of 130 due to my height. But the sky is the limit baby!! I just want you all to know post op and pre op that I wish you all good luck and hope you had and have as much success as I did so far. Hugs to you all!!! :780_sparkling_heart::780_sparkling_heart::)

    I saw a big change early on in the piece, maybe 6 weeks out - I seemed to lose a lot around my face and shoulders so it was quiet noticeable. Since then I don't see as much dramatic change as at first but I do feel it. I love crossing my legs, bending down to pick things up easily, I even started to try jogging!

    Thats fantastic!!! I see it mostly in my face and shoulders as well. I still get really tired if I try to walk very fast or run so I am going to wait it out a few weeks then I am going to sign up to the gym to optimizr these results!! Everyone who I have ever seen or met looks fantastic 1 year out. I want to be just like them. Congrats on your progress as well!!! 😉🤗🤗

    Hmmm to be honest, after six months, I still don’t see it when I look in the mirror. I guess, when you look every day, the changes don’t seem as drastic? Others notice quite a bit.

    However, when did I feel a difference? When things that were tough to do prior to surgery got easier, which was super early on. Basic things, like reaching down and touching my toes or putting on socks or tying my shoes... or walking up a flight of stairs. I would say it was 1 month out before I noticed these huge benefits.

    I still hold up clothing and think it’s too small, only to slide it on with ease. I still see myself as the same weight, even though I’m not.

    I see a little difference. But I am only like a little over 1 month post op. 40 pounds down over 130 to go woot woot 🤗🤗
