December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

Not to be tmi but when I go it is loose.

I wonder if you could have a whey intolerance or lactose intolerance? Milk is usually constipating so if it isn't, maybe there is an intolerance to one of the products?

Is it terrible or just annoying?

I am using lactaid free milk and a whey isolate. I guess I will call doc on Monday because after I drink them I get some nausea. Have been taking Zofran for the nausea.

Hi everyone, I'm new here and my surgery is scheduled for 12/17 in Charlotte NC. I just sent a request to be added to the FB group; liquid diet starts on this Tue for me and I would love to have others to talk to on this journey...

Worried!

My surgery is on December 3rd and I just started feeling the symptoms of a cold. Do you think they will cancel?

ive seen a lot of posts like this and none of their surgeons canceled cause of a cold. If it's more than a cold or the flu than yes. However you might be a bit miserable while you recover. Still you should call to let them know.

So sorry to hear that. That is a miserable feeling! I hope they have some good advice for you!

Ugh, so today is my first day of liquids. It's fine, just not finding the shakes tasty and I don't generally like yogurt or artificial sweetners, so.....lol

As far as hunger, it's fine, I can manage. Of course I WANT a bunch of stuff, but I think I'll do okay abstaining.

I do have a headache and that will be amplified on Monday because of TOM so, that'll be fun.

I'm excited because this is one more step closer to surgery even though it's not particulalry enjoyable.

I will probably lose 10 pounds by tomorrow in Water weight if my bathroom habits are any indication. Fortunately we were staying home today as I have to go every hour at least!

So far I've tried the Body Fortress strawberry because reviews said it tasted like Nestle Quik and it doesn't. I also had a Premier Protein chocolate. Didn't like that either. I've had a Dannon Light and Fit x2 Protein Greek peach yogurt, blah. Unsweetened applesauce and Better Than Boullion chicken broth were both the tastiest things I've had today. Gulping down the shake was best followed by water (although I won't be able to do that after surgery!)

I've had 48 ounces of water so far.

My friend gave me some samples of her Unjury Chocolate and Strawberry. I will try those tomorrow.

Official starting weight was 309. Hopefully the last time the scale reads that!

Hope you find some protein you can tolerate and like. I actually love the Premier shakes, chocolate and vanilla. Try a protein shot. You may like one of those better. I love the Dannon Fit yogurt too..especially the banana ... big fan of the unsweetened apple sauce and the chicken broth! The broth has seen me through..lol

Let us know how you like the Unjury...

So are the Protein Shakes basically the only protein you can get in during the liquid and purée part of post-op? I can handle premier protein. Hated muscle milk. Love Dannon light n fit Greek blueberry strawberry and vanilla so that's something else. Does that chicken broth have protein??? I'm so worried abt getting in enough protein to lose the weight and bc of Hair loss :(

I'm going to email my NUT on Monday and ask if the Unjury chicken broth flavored protein is okay. My friend gave me some of that too. You can probably add the unflavored Protein Powder to things. I'm allowed SF Jello and pudding, so pudding unflavored powder in those would be okay.

I've just never been a fan of artificial sweetener and I can taste that over everything else! I wish my plan had the low carb, high protein because I could do that much easier, but it doesn't so I will push along, taking a deep breath and gulping down my shakes! lol

If you already like the premier and Dannon Light n Fit x2 protein yogurt, seems like you should be just fine!

      😫 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 .
