Hey don't worry about it. Stater Bros. had fun size bags of Snickers on sale for 99 cents...who can pass that up? They were good, I got it out of my system, and I still lost 2 lbs this week. So be human and eat some jelly Beans and you'll be done with it. That's why we didn't get the bypass, remember?

That is awesome! Thank you for the support!!

I actually had my fill already!

Prior to the sleeve I would have eaten at least an entire bag before getting sick of them....

Now I think I have had a hand full or so and yep done!!

I love my sleeve!

LOLOL!!! I meant STARBURST....... I guess I had coffee on my mind as well.

too funny!!

Shwew! I wondered if that was what you meant. I don't have a sweet tooth, so I am safe. Now if they had vodka martini flavored jelly Beans, then that is another story LOL I may have to go get me an overpriced cup of coffee tomorrow after thinking of Starbucks jelly Beans :sleep0:

The sleeve allows us to live more normally and I am loving it. I went to New Orleans with some of my family on vacation last week and had little tastes of a lot of great food...I was surprised that I could drink a cup of Cafe ole at Cafe Du Monde, and eat two beignets full of powdered sugar...first time I've had a "normal" amount of bread and it was great. A special treat! Now I'm back on my Protein etc. Still losing.

LIFE IS GOOD!

Talk about slip ups, I made some really good Soup and my husband wanted Grandys biscuits so I made them and I tried a couple bites and ended up eating a whole biscuit! I couldn't imagine not suffering with this slip up but it went down so well! Scary.

Okay everyone!! Confession time for me too!

I had a family gathering and my sister brought pretzels and jalepeno cheese dip. Okay for most of you that is no big deal!! But for me, that is my downfall!! I love salty foods. So I of course bought a bag of pretzels and some cheese dip, well I finished the bag in 4 days!! I told my husband NO more!So I'm not allowed to have them in the house, or I will end up gaining all of my weight back.

So that is my confession and I'm back on the wagon!!

All I can think about at the moment is guacamole! I know a little wouldn't hurt, but I'm not sure that a little would be enough! xx

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

        Had surgery on Thursday the 17th. Everything went well and came home the next day. I have been on two protein shakes and liquids/broth each day since but will finally graduate to pureed foods on Thursday. Been walking and doing my breathing exercises as recommended. No pain that Tylenol can't ease but only needed it twice since I've been home. Don't bother taking extra stuff to the hospital as you will not use it. No time to read or talking as you will be sipping all day long and walking. And they will be giving you pain meds so you will be sleepy. Definitely take lip balm and wear loose clothes to the hospital and wear the same ones home. No need to overpack. Good luck everyone who will be going next. YOU GOT THIS!!!!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
