food containers - I bought 2 & 4 oz containers with lids. The little semitransparent disposable ones. LOVED these. Used them for Jello & such early on, and now I pack my lunches in them.

Proteins - I already knew which ones I liked, so I just stocked up. Then they ended up all being too thick to do me much good.

syrups - on the rare occasion (anymore) that I drink a from-powder Protein drink, I doctor the crap out of it. Here are some of my favorites to use (all SF):

Torani Salted Caramel

DaVinci Kahlua

Torani coffee

DaVinci Chai Tea

Torani Peanut Butter

Torani Cookie Dough

Torani Orange

I buy my from local stores or onine through netrition. They're higher per bottle, but when you factor in shipping they're usually quite a bit cheaper.

This was my 2nd WLS so I pretty much knew what I would/wouldn't need. I way overbought the first time.

There are past threads with a lot of information. The search feature here is so=so. For expediency sake I will post my lists. They are a bit wordy. Some thing I already had. I still use everything. I may have overdone it on the Protein powder (I bought 1 ea 5 lb bag of chocolate and vanilla). Oh well, I still drink Protein shake now and again. You can mix them into batters and things so it's not a waste.

What to Have at Home for liquid and Puree Stage

The above post reminds me of the meal that I absolutely lived off of during my full liquids phase... My mother in law made a big ol' container of an awesome cream of Tomato Soup (I don't have the recipe...but anything similar would work). I would mix that with cottage cheese. I know it sounds weird. But it increased the amount of Protein per serving. It really kept me full (which can be hard to achieve during the liquid-y stages), so I thought I'd share.

I'm 3 months out now. I still use my Blender Bottle every single day, with my Syntrax Nectar protein powder. And I still use my tiny food storage containers. I couldn't live with my crockpot... Once a week we fill it full of skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs. I also love my FitBit and myfitnesspal. :)

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
