    September surgery buddies!!

    Thank you so much!! I've reached out to my dietitian yesterday but I haven't heard anything back yet. I see the Dr on the 12th so I'll ask him about my logs then!!

    Who else weighs everyday? How do you get past the weight fluctuations? I know it's about the downward trend and there's no way eating 500 calories, I gained 1.1 pounds in a day. But idk. It still sucks. I was totally looking forward to getting out of the 330s for the first time in forever...

    Since the 20th? That's over half a pound a day! That seems really good to me! However I know when you don't meet your expectations, it sucks. You got this though! I keep hearing most Dr's don't care about how much you lose until after you start regular food anyway! The rest is just a transition.

    How much weight have you lost so far?
  5. Idk if you're in texas or not. But we have HEB and I got their meal simples soups and just put them all through the blender adding a little extra either water or non fat milk depending on the soup. I'm currently on full liquids post op as well. I have had baked potato soup, chicken tortilla soup, tomato and basil soup, green chili chicken soup, green chili chicken corn chowder, and chicken noodle. I didn't strain any of them. I just threw each one in the blender, added a few tablespoons extra fluid and pulsed until smooth smooth. I needed flavor! Lol.

    Mine has me starting b12 first day post op (it's sublingual). Starting the multivitamin on 1 week post op. 2 week post op start fiber supplements and 1 of the calcium. 3 week post op increase to 2 calcium. 4 week post op increase to 3 calcium and add iron. So by week 4 I should be taking everything.

    Ask your pharmacy if any of them can be transferred into liquids!
  8. I weigh myself every morning because I Want to see the daily fluctuations. It helps me to see an average of how much I could fluctuate day to day and as long as the trend is still downward I'm good. But it helps to keep me accountable to weigh everyday. That way I can't cheat one day cause It'll be like we'll I'll still lose just not as much. NO I'll see it on the scale day to day.

    I know! It would be nice if they had a bariatric feature!! But okay I'll just try to double check the stats and see how I'm doing. I'd rather overestimate than underestimate anyway. Thank you for your insight!!
  10. Have you tried metformin and Spironolactone for PCOS? That's what I'm on and balances out my hormones. I've been on both since I was 16 and diagnosed with pcos. These meds at the right dosages should help with any weight gain that's due to pcos. Metformin alone can do it. I just have the added spironolactone because I have high androgen with my pcos.

    Medications

    They tried to make me take crushed meds in the hospital. Specifically my pain meds. And I could not tolerate it. So I just haven't taken any meds yet. I'm waiting a few days for swelling to go down. I actually showed the Dr all of my pills and she said all my tablets were fine to take whole. My capsules were fine to take whole. The only meds I still needed to crush were the two pain meds because their capsules can become gummy and sticky in the tummy. So I said f**k it and haven't taken any pain meds. The rest of my meds she said since I can't tolerate crushing them and I will be taking them whole to just please take them ONE AT A TIME and wait at least 5 minutes per pill to make sure they don't get stuck or anything especially with the swelling. Hope this helps!!!

    The past two days I've used the baritastic app and it seems so much easier to calculate our tiny portions. Like it's already in there the tiny portion sizes. Plus idk if you saw myfitnesspal free version is going to lose the barcode scanner. I really don't want to pay extra right now especially if an equally good app has it. But that's why I wanted opinions! However I do like the fact that myfitnesspal has forums and you can have friends and stuff to cheer you on. Baritastic is lacking there... I'd track in both but that would end up being such a headache [emoji1787]

    I'm having no problems meeting my protein goals or liquid goals... I wonder why some people have problems and others don't. This is only my first day on full liquids too. So to my question. Do yall use the baritastic app or myfitnesspal or something else to track food and stuff? I've always used myfitnesspal because their extensive library of stuff I can scan. But I'm leaning towards baritastic since it's more personalized to us. I just don't know how extensive their database is. Any insights??

    How much liquid am I supposed to be able to get down at once? I advanced to full liquids today but I'm not having any restriction on it. I'm sipping slowly. Like I'm using a toddler spoon for my cream soup and waiting 20 seconds ish between each bite. I put half a cup in my bowl. Is it okay to finish that? I'm confused on this liquid part... lol
