    date nights

    I was sleeved on 4/22 😎 I told my fiancée that once I’m back on “real” food, when we have date night out I’d like if we ordered an app & meal for us to share, seems like that would work well for us!

    1 Week Post-Op

    I’m in the same boat! The sweet protein shakes ALL THE TIME were too much. I’ve discovered the absolute JOY of creamy soup with unflavored protein powder added 👍🏼👍🏼

    I hear ya!! I "splurged" and got the Flintstones chewables, they aren't THAT bad! And yes there is Iron supplements but be careful with them, they can really ummmm....affect your bm's LOL. Check with your doc, but you might be able to get your iron up just by adding things to your diet :smile:

    TROUBLE eating SLOW

    I still struggling with this one. One thing I make sure I do, is to put down my fork/spoon after every bite. Also, when I take a bite, I only take half of what is on the fork/spoon. I have scrambled eggs nearly everyday and (knock on wood) haven't had any problems. My problem is figuring out how long BETWEEN bites to take!

    I bruised easily to begin with, in fact I'm still bruised at one of the incisions. I'm anemic though, my PCP said that is why I bruise easily. Are you taking your vitamins? Low iron might be the reason why!
