    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!

    Tomorrow is my big day! So nervous because I’m a type 1 diabetic and had to stop my liquid diet due to spilling too many ketones. Fingers crossed all goes well!

    Surgery was done yesterday. Still sore but it takes time to get better. I’m biggest thing is knowing if I’m full or hungry it’s hard to tell right now, I hope that gets easier.

    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!

    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.
