I'm 2.5 weeks out and I tryed bake fish and it won't go down does anybody have any Protein ideals besides shakes

tuna Mayonnaise (low fat mayo), baked Beans, mushrooms, low fat cheese. Also blend in some milk powder. Milk has protein. I have a proper latte every morning and an ovaltine at night before bed. That's about 15g right there just with those 2 drinks.< /p>

I also was sleeved August 27th, 330 pre surgery and today I'm 301.4. I can't even imagine what it's going to feel like to step on the scale and see it starting with a 2.

I was sleeved 8/27 as well. I started at 324 and am now 285.. It is so weird seeing that 2 there. I've been 300+ for 7 years or more now, so it's a wonderful feeling!!! Good luck to you!

That made me smile when I read that about starting with a 2....it is definitely those moments that make this great. Congratulations so far and good luck with your next step on the scale ????

Thanx I'll definitely try that.

There are glycerine swabs that they give you at the hospital in lemon flavor that does the trick. I found some at a local medical supply store.

I couldn't eat tilapia or shrimp either. I tried Swai and it seemed fine.

Had mine in 8/26 and feeling 100% back to normal. Haven't had any nausea since the hospital' date=' have been going out and doing things, incisions all healed, no pain...[/quote']

I was sleeved 8/26 too and am totally back to normal- not getting in all my Protein and liquids every single day but for the most part i'm pretty darn close! I feel grrreat- only wish I could have real food- in the pureed stage :/

I was sleeved 8/19.

Concerns: I still have a pulling pain on the inside of my largest incision. Sometimes shooting pains. I get nauseous when I eat sometimes and sometimes start dry heaving.

Good news: I was stalled for 10 days and scale started moving again! I can drink liquids with no problems. Able to take a nice big sip.

I too was sleeved on 8/29. I have seen some early August sleevers say the third week is always a stall-out, but that after that they start losing again. Good luck, and just keep going

.

I was sleeved on 8/29 and I have been at a stall since 9/09 really weird. However, I campare myself to the bigest losers participants they loose so much the first two week and then struggle between the 3-6 weeks.lol.I hope that my body is just getting adjusted. Keeping a postive attitude has helped me through this part:)

Are y'all getting on the scale everyday? If so why??? If your on a stall take the batteries out of the scale and throw them across the street. If you keep seeing that stall every morning when you step up on the scale it's going to keep you discouraged. I weighed Sunday for the first time in two week. Keep off the scale!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
