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!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
