I am so happy you listed this! I have been looking and looking for my notes from that appointment! I couldn't remember what the name of it was. Thank you!

Hello!

Started my pre-op diet today. I am choking down the shakes. I like the flavor, but the foaminess/thickness is a problem for me. I have to do three a day, with other Clear Liquids. It's only a week, but I am hoping it gets better. My sister and I got in a huge fight last night (we live together temporarily), and I'm just having a tough day. Still excited for surgery on Monday. I hope everyones week is going well so far!

I thought it was going to be kind of cheesy, but I'll be darned if I don't sleep right through them. I'd make sure to grab one at your appointment! :)

How did you mix the shake? I know blenders are supposed to cause them to be extra airy and foamy. Do you have a shaker bottle? I saw one at Wal-Mart yesterday with the little wire whisk ball in it in the Protein mix shelf. It was about $7.00.

I have a blender ball with the ball whisk in it. My nut wants me to mix it with skim milk. The taste is fine, it's actually good. I am hoping I just get used to it, but I find myself gagging. It's only a week I guess!

Day one of my two week Pre-Op liquid diet and I'm not doing so well. I feel depressed and weepy. I know it'll pass. I think I'm having emotional fall out knowing my life is going to change. I tried to explain to my hubby, who isn't overweight, that food is my friend, my commfort, my drug. It's hard to say goodbye to the me that i've been for 30 plus years and to the one thing that made everything better. I was prepared for the hungriness but not the emotions,

It is very hard to explain how food makes us feel or why we have these feeling for food. I start my preop diet things tomorrow and I am scared of of not having enough food. I know that this is in my head I have been doing this for a while and not that there is a deadline or set date I have an issue with it. I think My issue is all mental. I find that by talking about it and telling others (for me it is my boss and a cople of close friends, My hubby does not seem to get ti) what is going on it eases the pressure about what ever food I am wanting or craving at that time.

The link is in the very first post for this thread. It is a secret group so I don't think you can search for it.

Tami, you and I are both having our sleeves on December 16th! Where are you located? Did I interpret the previous post correctly that both you and Ken are in Ft. Worth? I'm in Waco. Where are you having you surgery done?

Yippee another 16th surgery buddy and Waco really isn't far! I'm actually having mine in Grand Prairie, what about you TBP?

Oh and I do I live in Fort Worth

Hang in there! I have no words of wisdom to help but so glad we have so many people in this group to help us through. We all have our own issues with food. I know there are plenty who can understand completely where you are right now. I hope tomorrow is easier!

Right there with you. I was fine all day, but this is the time of night I usually eat the most calories. My tummy is saying I am not hungry, but my head says I am STARVING. This is tough!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
