You will get to the mushie stage soon. oatmeal, tuna salad, egg salad, chicken salad, anything mushie Cottage cheese etc... Go to the Store, and go shopping with your eyes not your gut, and look for stuff that is soft and mushie.

Then buy what you will, or think you will eat. Remember, you won't eat much before your full, so don't go crazy on it.

If you really start getting hungry, call and ask your Dr. if you can have something like, thicken your shake with a little less Water, so it's like cream. He might say yes....... Just remember,,,, you need to heel before you start trying to eat stuff.

So give him a call, and see what he says. He might have some good ideas for you.

I know, I want to heal...that's what's most important. I think what's hard right now is the not hot or cold.thing. shakes taste like crap at room temp.....

Haha I am in the same boat as you. I was banded on 9/8, and for all of yesterday and day before, I was HYPNOTIZED by food. Seriously, commercials would come on for stuff like Frosted Mini-Wheats, which I don't even like, and I was salivating.

I had been living off of Protein shakes (w/ Water, not milk), Jello, and chicken broth since the surgery.

I ended up going to Panera and getting some chicken noodle Soup and just drinking the broth and it made me feel so much better. I just needed a different taste in my mouth, I suppose.

I am so excited to have a normal cream Soup for dinner tomorrow night.

I know that's true, but you will get use to that. Believe Me !

If you drink to cold, your muscles around your band will tighten up. Not comfortable at all.

If you buy a good shake with a variety of tasty flavors.... It's doable.

So be patient, your doing a Great Job just by hanging on alone !

Info on shakes ? let me know...

I def need a good variety of flavors. I'm having a hard time finding good shakes with decent Protein that I can drink barely cold. Also, should I be drinking the whole thing at a serving or a little bit at a time? Might be dumb but if I drink too much I get that pain in my tummy and shoulder.

You should weigh yourself for motivation! I know that month 1 is about healing and not losing, but being on only liquids is bound to cause some weight loss, so you might as well enjoy it (since it probably will come back when we adjust to solids again).

For now, just enjoy the number going down!

Hi Jackie this time is also about learning to not have our lives revolve so much around food. To learn to have family time where you don't pig out will teach you daughter a wonderful life long lesson. Not to mention making sure her Mommy is around for many more birthdays.

Whatever makes you happy !

It's like coffee. Down it or sip it ! as long as it doesn't sit for 24 hrs....(that would be nasty !)

I'll look up the site and get back to you. for Muscle Milk Light.

195 calories, 25G. of Protein.< /p>

Is that good enough for you ?

www.allstarhealth.com

go to that site a 1.65lb. jug of powder is under $19.00

shipping is $5.99 weather you buy 1 or 21.. still the same price.

Check it out, and if interested I'll tell you what taste good, but I think you will figure that out yourself. LOL Pick up a shaker bottle if needed.

Love this advice SisterSue---thoughts like this are what help keep me motivated. Thinking about my kids and how I am going to be stronger and leaner and more energetic and how THAT will benefit them....

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
