Congrats to you!

I am just three weeks post-op and slowly improving. 18 lbs lost so far. Just returned to work. Still have another week of pureed foods to go before advancing my diet. One thing that has been a help to me is that my dietician indicated that Wendy's chilli is lean and I can have it as long as I puree it. That has seemed like a real treat to me. Along with my sugar-free tropical popsicles. :)

Feeling better everyday! So excited for what's ahead!

I had my surgery 12/11/13. I'm doing well. Back at work on 12/30/13. I work in an office so it's not hard to go back to work. I lost 10.5 on my pre-op and 15 at my first week follow up appointment. I've recently recovered from a bad bout of constipation. Started doing Fiber EVERY DAY. Along with Probiotics. I'm on solids and still trying to get the whole knowing when I'm full down. I'm wearing a size 24 instead of a 28. I haven't weighed myself because I don't have another follow-up appointment until 1/22/14. I don't want to get obsessed with the scale.

I'm just happy my size 24's are loose on me. : )

Two weeks post-op. Textbook recovery - no problems, not even gas. I am down 12 pounds in 14 days, and I am ok with that. To fend off constipation, I am taking Colace twice a day, and 2 ounces diluted prune juice at bedtime.

I did buy the powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury Protein cheese sauce, and I put it on almost everything. I am adding unflavored Protein to sugar free pudding. I tried making Jello shots, but the protein rises to the top. On the soft diet I can have bananas or potatoes, but those are trigger foods for me. Otherwise, my soft diet doesn't seem to be much different from the pureed diet except for consistency.

This afternoon, I am going to make a few chocolate Peanut Butter balls. I made them when pre-op.....just mix chocolate whey protein with Peanut Butter and roll into small balls - refrigerate.

They will probably be my favorite snack.< /p>

Good luck to other December sleevers. Like SleevinIT said...What are you eating?

Hi all, I was sleeved 12-16. I go for my first post-op appt this Thursday afternoon. According to my home scale I've lost 18.6 pounds so far. For some reason I think it should be more but I'm pleased (also down 1 pants size)!! On the puréed/soft food stage. Very tired of eating the same thing over and over....

I was sleeved on 12-23-13. I have another week before I start my soft regular Protein. I had no pain after surgery and have no nausea at all. I don't know if I am the exception but the whole surgery and recovery was really easy for me. I lost 20# from my two week liquids to my one week check up, so about 6# a week average. At my two week check up I only lost another 3#. I was a bit disappointed but am trying not to focus on the scale at all. I know I am drinking less than 750 calories per day so the weight will come off. I know my body is fighting me because of the low caloric intake. That will change over time and so far I have been not been focusing on the scale. I am really looking forward to some real food, even if it will be a few bites. No regrets so far. I am glad to be back to work because sitting around the house with food I could not eat was getting difficult.
