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!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
