OMG I am ACTUALLY drinking a protein shake!



Recommended Posts

Thanks to Tiffykins!!! My hubby just picked up the Extreme Milk chocolate from whey Optimum and I am drinking it! I have to be honest, I don't LOVE it, but since the alternative of the dozens of others I have tried is gagging, this is pure success! I am so happy I will get in some Protein today. I am thinking of trying to freeze some into a slushie.

I just had to share. Also a 5 lb container is on sale at GNC for $42 ($20 off) So Double Woot!

YAY YAY, my husband likes his super cold. I just can't handle super cold stuff on my teeth.

I bet freezing it or even blending it with some ice would be yummy.

Are you mixing it with Water or milk?

Mmm, bananas.... I am in a hungry mood tonight

I am mixing it with milk to get more Protein in, but I will try Water another day.

It is great frozen too!

I used to LOVE those syrups...have a bunch of them but I cannot STAND them anymore. They make me wanna gag! As if the Protein powders aren't bad enough! I used to love Carnation Instant Breakfast (SF) but now I am lucky to get one or two sips down. And I actually stocked up on it before the surgery (before I read not to on this forum). The little things that I used to love that turn me off now...LOL. I guess I will wait and see if the likes come back down the line.

I haven't really had any food dislikes so far. . . hahahahah but then i'm still on Clear liquids with those popsicles, broth, and Jello. . . not much for browsing there. . . but Water has been a big turn off. . . used to love it sooo much, now ewwwwwww, it's so nasty unless i add Welches sugarfree dark berry blend into it, then its good. . . i'll see on thursday if i can tolerate sf puddings, cottage cheese, stringcheese, fat free refried Beans. . .will be interesting. . .

Tiff, what a good idea to add extracts to milk. . . how neat is that! Do those extracts carry alot of carbs?

The SF syrups do not have carbs what I found on myfitnesspal.com

It appears that the extracts vanilla and banana do not have any nutrtional value. No carbs, no calories.

My revision surgery in on Friday, so I'm doing pre-op right now. Even when I had my band put in, I added extracts to my shakes for flavor. My favorite is to get chocolate Protein powder, frozen cherries, milk, and almond extract. ALMOST has good as eating chocolate covered cherries:001_tongue:!! A dab of Peanut Butter in chocolate powder with bananas and banana extract is also yummy.

I never thought of using those coffee flavorings - I'll have to get some when I get off clears after surgery. Great idea!!

Tiffy comes through again! I use soy milk for mine and it keeps the lactose intolerance down. Not that my intolerance is bad, but why tempt fate? I am still having at least one Protein Shake per day. The less gritty the better! And like real food, I have to go very slow and sip and stay away from gulping. Last week took two BIG swigs of OJ and paid the price for about 45 minutes, on the Water closet, not knowing which end would open up first. Hated it!

using soy milk is a good idea because a lot of people who are sleeved get diarrhea from milk. soy Slender has way less calories than any other brand of soy milk.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
