I LOVE Quest Bars but they are definitely a trigger for me. But then after surgery it might be different.

I just went to my 3 Month follow up and my doc said no Protein bars.. They are a mushy food : ( so I have dropped them altogether.

What in the world is a "mushy" food? And why is it bad?

Very strange. Both my NUT and dr say these are fine for my diet. I only eat 1/2 bar but it does help when I need to get Protein in before end of the day.

I'm not saying I agree with the doc but she said basically it isn't dense enough to keep you satisfied. I was having one as a Meal Replacement and I was feeling mighty full for a while after!! So I just listened and didn't argue... : / she said she wants me to get Protein from dense meats that will help keep me full longer. Which I do eat a lot of meats!! Sandwich meat.. Thin and trim mostly.. Salmon... Turkey burgers.... It isn't like I down one for every meal!! I have one maybe every third day... They also curb my craving for chocolate! It was strange to me cause in one breath she said no Protein Bars and in another she said you're doing great just keep doing what you're doing! Hahahaha (Eyeroll)

.Yesterday I ordered a 12 bar variety pack from Quest Nutrition's website, so that I would have something for the road. Some of my doctor appointments are not close to home. I hope I like them. And I like the idea of the class experiment, too

I really like the Quest bars. I was doing Bariatric Advantage, but grew tired of them because they tasted like cardboard. The Quest bars are wonderful and cheaper. I love all the flavors especially the Cookies and cream and the strawberry cheesecake. They can be addictive, only eat if have no other form of Protein in house like yogurt or cheese.< /p>

I use my Quest Bars for meal replacement like on the weekend if we are going riding around and my husband wants something I can't eat I will eat my bar. I love the different recipes you can do with the bars. Also if you like chips their new Quest Chips are great with 20g of Protein.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
