    Eating too much?

    Yes that really does make me feel better. Thank you! --- RNY 9/10/20 HW: 245 Day of surgery: 225 CW: 213
  2. I could drink 64 oz of liquid the day after surgery and since then, I've worried that I did something wrong somehow. The past couple of days since starting the puree phase, I eat more at meals than I think I'm supposed to be able to. My doctor's office said that people don't usually finish a cup of greek yogurt in one sitting but I don't find that to be a problem. I don't even know what I'm asking. I'm just worried. --- RNY 9/10/20 HW: 245 Day of surgery: 225 CW: 213

    Tespo Vitamin Machine

    I know that this thread is a few years old but I'm curious how it eventually worked out for you. Thanks! --- RNY 9/10/20 HW: 245 Day of surgery: 225 CW: 214

    Smoothie Recipes

    I got a couple of bariatric cookbooks just so I would have ideas for things. There are some great recipes in both of them. --- RNY 9/10/20 HW: 245 Day of surgery: 225 CW: 214

    Pre surgery diet freak out

    I was lucky (-ish) that I only had to do it for 5 days prior to surgery. My only tips are - wean yourself off of caffeinated coffee because you won't be able to have it during recovery - drink Gatorade if you're allowed. It'll help give some energy and keep you from getting a headache - likewise, I drank chicken broth every day to help get something warm and to get some salt. You're essentially preventing a "keto flu" here. I was honestly surprised that I didn't have any headaches during those few days. - I had freezer meals ready for my family so that I wouldn't have to cook for them. My husband could just handle dinner easily. (Not that he's incompetent or something. He had to work and help with watching 3 kids. Me not having to cook was helpful.) Other than that, try and keep yourself distracted. I watched a lot of TV, played video games, and generally tried to not think about wanting to eat. It wasn't terrible but I definitely hated it. Day 2 was awful. Beyond that, things were easier to handle. Good luck! --- RNY 9/10/20 HW: 245 Day of surgery: 225 CW: 218

    Anyone for September 2020?

    I has mine last week on Thursday. I'm surprised at how good I feel! I was nervous about getting enough water but it hasn't been an issue. Pain is manageable. The only thing I have trouble with sometimes is finding a comfortable position to sleep. Sometimes it's not an issue and other times -- like tonight -- I'm stuck awake because no matter which way I lay, it's uncomfortable.

    This liquid diet is bruuutal. I'm on day 4 of 5 and I'm so hungry. The other days were filled with head hunger and sucked in their own way. But today...omg my stomach just keeps growling.

    Meal Prep

    My surgery is scheduled for September 10 and I'm trying to prepare as best as I can. I've seen people talking about meal prepping for themselves after surgery. What is it that you're prepping? Sent from my Pixel 3 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Twins! When do you start your pre-op diet?

    Anyone for September 2020?

    I got lucky (?) and only have to do the liquid pre-op diet for 5 days. I'm thinking of it like I did when I quit smoking 10 years ago...just sort of grit my teeth and get through it. Mind over matter... [emoji1696]

    Meal Prep

    A mini thermos! That's a great idea! So you made protein shakes ahead of time and kept them in the fridge? I have a bunch of different protein powder flavors, including an unflavored one. I'm hopeful that I'm covered on that front.
