    I am a picky eater - it is a texture thing for me. I am worried that after surgery I will get so burnt out on the same foods.

    I am a little over 2 months PO and I have stalled so many times it’s unreal!! I’ll drop like crazy for a week then hit a stall for a week. It drives me crazy because I do the same things all the time.

    I was in a support group that had clothing exchanges. People brought the clothing that no longer fit them and gave it to those who were not as far along. You don't really want to buy new clothes until you are at or near your goal weight, because they will only fit you for a couple of months at most!

    Re: Barimelts...had pre-op with Surgeon, Registered Dietician, Nurse Anesthetist...they said BariMelts in general are fine. They said take them as directed for 3 months, we’ll check blood levels to be sure I’m getting what I need. I know we’re all different, but/and hope this helps you!

    I’m in the same boat with you! Someone told me today that it’s likely your taste with change after surgery. Let’s hope it does

    I hear that your tastes in foods change after surgery. I don't know if that means texture will be differently interpreted or not too. I'm hoping that I will still enjoy a variety of foods, but who knows? There are lots of people here on the forums that should be able to help give info on this. For a lot of people it seems they experiment a lot to figure out what their new pouch or stomach will tolerate. Sorry, I'm not much help, but I will encourage you to keep looking through the forums because I'm sure it has come up more than once.
    All the best!

    This is great advice! I was just saying in another thread how I was going between being excited and saying 'what have I gotten myself into'. Attitude is EVERYTHING and I also think if you are doing everything they tell you to do, then that goes a long way toward minimizing complications.
    I say let's rock this out people!

    The best piece of advice I can give is to go in positive. Don't assume you'll have complications. Yes we hear from the people who have issues and are in pain, tired, etc. But that's because they're feeling bad and want help and support. What we tend not to see is the other 98% of us where everything went off without a hitch. I walked and walked and drank a ton of fluids and was home from RNY within one day and in no pain within 4-5 days. At 5 weeks out I am jogging, light weight training, and basically back to or better than normal.

    Go in thinking you're going to rock this and nothing is going to stop you and you're going to walk and sip fluids and kick the surgery's ass. And do it. Move. Drink. Repeat.

    Also, hydrate like a camel the day before surgery. Literally like a gallon or more. My surgeon swears by this because people who go on hydrated tend to do better.
