I don't want to open those floodgates. When it comes to soda, I am like an alcoholic. I can't even have one.

I did try drinking soda once since surgery. I burped it right back up. it was a definate no go for me. I have never been a soda addict, just needed something to drink and that was the only thing available. learned my lesson, dont want it again. :)

Well i do drink soda ( mainly diet). I cant drink it with food because when I burp the food comes with it.. Ill sip one .. usually cant finish it like I used too.. Still have lots a restriction.. and losing well. I dont get addicited to things though so if its a gateway "drug" then I would not suggest it..

I'm a soda addict and I crave it like once a week. So what I will do is go buy one and take a sip...and guess what? I don't want a second sip! After not drinking it for a month and then trying it again it burns my tongue so bad! But even knowing this now I still crave it! So I just have to get a soda and remind myself every now and again that I don't like it anymore.

Yep, I'm the same way. I have one Pepsi and the floodgates open. It also makes me crave red meat which I otherwise rarely eat. So strange. Our heads play so many games with us!

I had sparkling Water and it hurt my stomach. I wonder if you had some ice cold lemon-lime splenda kool-aide, if it would help? I think I might make me some now come to think of it. :)

There's a freezer pop brand called "Soda Pops." They make a 7-Up freezer pop. I have no idea how Sprite and 7-Up compare (not sure I'e ever had 7-Up, and have probably only had Sprite 2 or 3 times in my life) but they look similar. They're about 35 calories each IIRC. Not sugar free, but I'd take a little sugar over a diet soda any day of the week.

Our Walgreens sells them for about $1.90 a box, but you can also get them on Amazon.< /p>

I am 2 months out and I have a sip every once in a while. I would NEVER open a can or buy a bottle for myself - I would figure out a way to drink the whole thing! I will steal a sip from my partner and she scolds me but it is good. Most of the time it is a reminder that it doesnt taste nearly as good as it used to! I have read that it stretches your sleeve and I have also read that there is no medical research that supports the theory. I think in this new life I have to remember something - everything in moderation. We all have to live right?!!!!!!!

      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!
