I'm 14 days out and finally had a scrambled egg. I've also had oatmeal and yogurt. But I need to find some Protein shots. Very tired of the Protein Drinks. Where did you get yours?

Laurie I was also banded on the 16th, How are you doing? I feel great. It only hurts now when i bend the wrong way or sit for too long. When do you get your first fill? I have to wait until Oct 1st. I am very carefull what I eat, but I feel like I have no restriction, but after what we went thru don't want to screw it up -

Hello everyone. I am 12 days post op. I was on Clear Liquids week 1 and full liquids week 2. I can have mushies on Friday. I am sooooo Hungry. I do get full fast when I eat. I absolutely hate cream Soups. I can tolerate cream of mushroom but I am tired of it. Yesterday I ate some baked potato Soup. It was a little chunky but I chewed really good before I swallowed it and I did fine. I am only able to eat about 1/4-1/2 cup at a time. I am going to cheat and try some chili tonight. I am a little scared of getting sick but I am so hungry. I am going to hope for the best. :blushing:

It is so crazy how different docs put people on different diets....

So yesterday was my holiday and I had real food, tuna, egg salad and a little turkey and noodle pie, plus a taste of ice cream.

I was sore and exhausted from cooking all day though.

No problems from the dinner, but back on track today.

I had my band August 11th and couldn't ask for better. I started starving about day 4 or 5, so I called in and they told me to go ahead to week two (puree). Well, week two diet lasted 2 days. Called back in and they told me to ease into week three diet (mushy). Towards the end of week 2, the hunger started again and they told me to ease into regular foods. So, I've been on regular foods since three weeks after the band. I went in for my first fill September 3rd, which was 2cc and have had no problems yet. They cleared me to start working out at the gym again and I'm on my 3rd day. So, including preop diet until now, I've lost 50lbs in just under 7 weeks. When I had my fill, they told me guys usually lose faster than women and have to have adjustments more often. I'm starting to get hungry again between meals so there may be something to "fills more often." Good luck to all of you have started this journey.......

***update***

I weighed at the gym again this am and it seems with the calorie deficit and exercise, I'm losing around .75 to 1.0 lbs per day. Dr. Hollis told me the first 60lbs or so would come off pretty quick but then should slow down. Still feel healthy, plenty of energy and loving every minute of it...Pre-Band Three weeks prior to surgery 375 to 362lbs. Post-Band, Aug. 11th till now, 362 to 322 lbs.

Hey all. Glad everyone seems to be doing good.

The first week post op I lost 10 lbs, but now in the second week I think I am the same. It sucks. I have been eating Protein Shakes and Soups, and my calories have mostly been around 700. Yesterday I went down another pound, but then started on mushies so my calories went up to 1200 and today I went back up 3 pounds. It sucks because I have an appointment today. I swear that every single time I have gone in to be weighed I have been up 2 or 3 pounds on my scale that morning. It's like some cruel joke, lol.

Weighed myself today and down to 279.0 and things are going ok. Seems when I "over eat" it comes out as waste which is better then vomit.

Not sure how to update my ticker but so far lost 26lbs. Slow and steady wins the race and I am happy with the lose.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
