    Vega has a berry protein powder. I normally mix with just water but it also works well with oat milk or almond milk. It really good with half banana n some mixed frozen berries. Hope this helps. They also have an almond coconut that’s pretty good also.
  6. Today is my one month anniversary and today my internal stitches just seemed to stop pulling and burning n pain. I just woke up with out it. Last night was the best sleep I had since surgery. So hang in there the pain will just because almost not there one day. Good luck!

    July 2020 Surgery anyone?

    Tomorrow is my one month surgery anniversary and I cannot believe it has gone by so fast . I have to say the first two weeks where not good and I really regretted it. But I still hope I did the right thing. But yesterday I was allowed normal food. So I tried shredded lettuce and thin tomatoe slices with tuna. I was in heaven! I am so glad my stomach still likes lettuce. I think I would have been really sad if I couldn’t have lettuce anymore. Oh I also splurged this morning and had 2 inches of sprouted bread that I toasted from Wegman’s. It was spot on amazing. Hope everyone is feeling great and enjoying there anniversary!🙂

    July 2020 Surgery anyone?

    My surgery was same day n I have been stuck for two full weeks with no loss. I feel like I am failing at this already and I consume 600 or less calories a day . I am right there with you.This is supposed to be a real thing the two week stall but it doesn’t make you feel any better when your scale won’t go in the direction you want it to.very frustrating and disappointing!

    Wow you look fantastic. Seven years and you look fantastic. I hope I will be as happy as you in seven years. I just had my VSG on July seventh and I have been stalled on weight loss for two weeks. I already feel like I’m failing but everyone said this is a normal stall I guess we will see. Great job you look fantastic.

    VSG PostOp Bad Experience

    I have the same pinching n burning under one of my incisions and the sensitivity and some numbness my surgeon said it was the internal stitches they use to hold everything together so you don’t get an incision hernia. He said they will eventually dissolve. But they do hurt.

    Food Before and After Photos

    What brand of fake ground beef do you use ? I bought the morning star triller bits but it has a very harsh nasty taste and you can’t even hide it I tried sloppy joes (before surgery) and i wasn’t able to eat because of the taste.

    July 2020 Surgery anyone?

    Question for everyone that has had there surgery. Do any of you have numbness in the center of your stomach. I have a line in the center of my abdomen that is about four inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide that is like numb it feels like you know when you get dental work done and they numb you and that feeling in your check that’s what it feels like. Does anyone else have this or am I strange.

    July 2020 Surgery anyone?

    Yes! I had my surgery on the 7th and my body still hurts just not as bad. My internal stitch’s are still pulling and burning and causing me a lot of pain still but my shoulders n neck and body ach has gone mostly. I still get exhausted very easy. Showers feel so exhausting that when I’m done I have to rest for at least an hr because I am whipped out. Be ware of sneezing I have done it twice n cried from the pain and laughing also I started to laugh n it ended by crying in pain. Hope you feel better sooner then me! 🙂

    Hello everyone hope everyone is doing good especially all us post ops. Listen I had something that just hit the spot today n I thought I would share because I have been struggling a bit I cannot seem to get enough protein n fluid in it’s like there isn’t enough time in the day. But I had to drop my child off at work today and there was a Dunkin Donuts on the other side of the highway so I stopped in the drive threw and got a small iced decaf with sugar free vanilla flavor shot in it. I took it home and added 4 oz of fair life vanilla protein and a half packet of trivia. Oh my gosh it was fantastic. It took me like an hr to drink but it was amazing. Just thought I would share. Talk to you all latter!🙂

    Talk to your surgeon they can still choose to do the surgery with or without your PCP release.
