Whats 3 days!?

Recommended Posts

So I start soft foods Monday... I'm do sick of liquids that everytime I go to drink something I literally want to spit it out. It's 3 days until soft foods.... Would it be so bad to go ahead and do a little laughing cow cheese or pudding or Jello once a day until Monday? I'm about to be 3 weeks postop and im dying over here! :(

I'm 3 weeks postop and did SF Jello and pudding from the beginning....at week 2, I did have cheddar cheese. I chewed until the cheese was liquified. it tasted so good....I'm in mushy foods now.

Stick it out if you can. You will be making and reinforcing new habits for a very, very long time now. Remind yourself this is not permanent, allow yourself to accept the discomfort and try to be OK with a decision that is not the most pleasant, but the best for you.

The little "gives" here and there have actully been big stumbles in hindsight (for me). It is worth it.

ugh, 3 days can be an eternity. Hold out if you can, but i say that if you need to take a few bites to save your sanity, i don't think 3 days will hurt you. especially with pudding and Jello. I still have 2 weeks of liquids left :( and it seems an eternity!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
