Finally on soft foods. I actually ate some chicken noodle Soup today. I ate the chicken, carrots and few of the noodles. It was good to finally chew something after five weeks of liquids/pureed. I am happy it stayed down. Unsure of how much to eat as I am not sure what my full trigger/s will be. I am sure I will find out soon enough.

I FINALLY found Cream of Wheat Whole Grain today after weeks of looking for it. And I also found the higher proetin fat free milk I have been hunting for. I live in Southern California too, and you would think I wouldn't have a problem with all the stores here! can't wait to have some in the morning!

I had Cream of Wheat, brown sugar flavor, for Breakfast this morning. It was the instant packet kind my mom had. I thinned it with some almond milk and ate about half of it. It went down fine. I'm 8 days post-op and on purees. But, FYI, I didn't have a "full liquid" stage, just clears to pureed, so I'm not sure what it counts as.

I'm at day 11 and have been having Cream of Wheat this week with no problems. I have splenda with it too. We are told to limit ourselves to 1/2 cup. I've done oatmeal too.

It is interesting with the different diet stages with different doctors. I had my surgery in Mexico and the diet I was advised follows the Vanderbilt sleeve diet. I had a week of clears, a week of full liquids and now a week to three weeks of soft foods such as blended meats/moist, Soups, oatmeal and grits or cream of wheat, scrambled or soft eggs and yogurt. I tried my first soft food of Greek yogurt and refriwd Beans with a little cheese puréed together. Yummmm! My sleeve tolerated it well.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
