My doctor said to use Bariatric Fusion during my 2 week pre-op so I ordered the sample pack from their website. After hearing all the stories on here of how horrible the Protein is, I must say I was surprised at how much I like them (although you might ask me again after that's all I've had to "eat" for weeks and I might feel the same as the rest of you..:) ). I have tried all of them except the unflavored. The orange was my least favorite. It wasn't gross, but it just wasn't orange enough for me I guess. I had the Cappuccino flavor this morning and I LOVED it. I will definitely be ordering more of it and next time I think I'll make a frozen cappuccino out of it. I just ordered some Unjury and nectar today and from what I have read these seem to be the most favorite so we'll see!

I have found that the taste for different Protein Drinks varies from person to person. Some might say it tastes like a monkeys ass while others rave about how wonderful it is. I think its all in our own personal tastes. Glad you found a variety that you like right away. Some people have spent months finding the right kind. I purchased sample packs from several different companies and so far there is only one that I didn't like. (it was to taste like vanilla but tasted like playdoh instead). So I will avoid that kind from now on. I like Unjury and Syntrax Nectar as well. Now I am on mushies I am trying to get more of my Protein from my food and less from drinks. I only have one Protein Shake a day.

I would say that most people are OK with their Protein, but it's the old phenomenon: only people who hate it speak up. Just like in customer service - you may think it's all shit, but people who are happy don't call the hotline to tell them "I bought your widget yesterday, it works fine. Thanks" - CLICK. People only call if the widget sucks.

Same with Protein IMHO. It is a little finicky and I had to try a few different brands before I found one I liked, but now I am using Wheybolic Extreme chocolate, and I have no problem starting my day with this!

And LOL @Lily, I totally get the PlayDoh thing. I have one "Gourmet Elite Protein" that claims to be the tastiest. I tried PB & chocolate flavor thinking you can't go wrong there. Well, can I ever. Not sure who decided to call it gourmet elite...

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

        I feel ya.
