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.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
