December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

I saw my surgeon for my final pre-op visit yesterday, and all is still on track for my Dec. 3 surgery. I was worried he would delay me because while on my way to see him last Wednesday, some guy ran a red light, hit me, and totaled my van. I'm pretty bruised from the seatbelt locking and airbags deploying, but he said he'll be operating above my bruises, so no need to delay. Thank goodness! I've not been struggling on the pre-op diet (down ~18 pounds), but I don't want to keep it going! I got pre-registered for the hospital after seeing him, and I'm now just hanging out with my shakes and Soups until Tuesday. I've attached a pic of my poor bruised belly in case any of you get slugged in the guts before surgery and need evidence to argue your case. :)

Does anyone know of good cream Soups to buy or recipe to make?

I'm eating the Pacific Organics and Imagine Organics brands of cream Soup. They're in boxes, and they can be found at Target in the soup aisle or at Kroger in the health food/naturals section. They cost about $3/box, and they have about 3.5 8oz. servings. My favorites are the Cashew Carrot Ginger mixed with Syntrax Nectar unflavored Protein Powder or the Creamy Broccoli mixed with Unjury cheese-flavored Protein powder. Don't heat the protein in the microwave or mix it directly into hot soup. Before heating, reserve a bit of the cool soup to mix your protein in, then add that back to the heated bit. This helps maintain the smooth, creamy consistency.

Hi Boomersmomma! The link is throughout the thread but also should be in the very first message in the first page.

I got my time today also. I have to be at the hospital at 6:30 am on the 4th. Wow that's early but I probably won't be able to sleep anyway. Good luck to all of us who have surgery the first week of December!!

      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!!

        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 .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
