    September 2019 🍂🍁

    Hi Sept peeps! I wanted to check in to see how everyone is doing? I can't believe that as of this upcoming Tuesday I will be 6 weeks out. On Tuesday I will have release to eat whatever I want (of course keeping within recommended dietary guidelines from NUT and what new insides agree with). I'm wondering how it is for others at this time? I do ok with soft foods like yogurt, but really struggle still with more solid foods like shredded chicken. Last night it took me 45 min to get in 3/4 of an ounce of chicken with some spaghetti sauce on it. I'm averaging about 500 cals a day. I still need to rely on protein shakes to get my protein up there. I've had the foamies a few times now - no fun! But I'm having trouble determining what the feeling of "full" is for me, so I think I just overdid it those couple of times with either eating too much or too fast. (I am starting to more consistently use a meal timer to help make sure I don't eat to fast.) How is it for others? It's weird too because every time I eat my new insides gurgle and they feel like they are shifting around. Very strange feeling! Energy level - I'm OK feeling for just regular sitting around and such, but going out to a store can exhaust me. Just last weekend I had to go sit in the car and let my boyfriend finish our grocery shopping without me. Ugh! I'm taking in my first batch of clothes to goodwill today - weird to see them go, but this time (unlike previous "diets") I don't feel the need to hold on to them just in case I gain it back (which ALWAYS HAPPENED and then some!). I was thinking too, its usually about this time into a diet that I would start to slide and go back to old ways. It is nice to have this tool so that I cannot do that... I just can't! This is what it is all about - making lifetime healthy habits!

    @smaller_sav Thanks for asking. I’m doing OK I’m up to pureed foods now But I find them difficult to eat very uncomfortable. As for when I was in the hospital I was in a pretty good amount of pain but it was alleviated pretty much by day three or four

    Hi. If anyone is curious I had my surgery Tuesday. As of today I’m doing well. No need for pain meds. My stomach feels still so bloated though. Like I’m pregnant! No big issues with my liquids just not that interested. Its like a job to fit everything in. Passing gas is a challenge but walking around is helpful. Any questions feel free to message me. Im more than happy to share any of it if will help! Good luck to those coming up!

    Mine is 5 days full liquids, two days clear. The 5 days is 3 protein shakes a day and one glass of juice. Then sugar free popsicles, sugar free jello, water and etc as much as I like. 2 days clear is just clear liquids and 6 cups of clear juice or non sugar free popsicles (2 count as one cup) (I assume for calories).

    Doubting my decision

    I understand where you are coming from SassyLady, but Briswife15 is right - the complications of NOT having the surgery can be worse and almost a certainty. My surgery is about a month away and I keep going back and forth from excited to nervous and share some of the same concerns.
  11. My date is set and I'm thinking to myself - is this really the right thing? Yes, I KNOW it is! I need to be healthy - my joints just ache and other obese issues cause trouble. But, I read over stories all the time here - both good and bad. Then wonder - What if I end up having consequences? And then scary in another way - what happens when I'm thin? (Having not really been anywhere near thin since 15.) Anyway - I just had to put this out there to other understanding souls :)
