just wow.

already fitting different size jeans and shirts feeling better. it's been such a long time since i could say that. good luck to new sleevers this week, it's worth it so far!

Thanks VSG !!!! I"ll check it out !!

Susan - if you're on full liquids you can have them now :) Susan, I get them at my local grocer called HEB.

Here's a store locator on their website. Also check out their products ! I like them because they are not that sweet !

Okay Sleevers.... Even though my post doesn't reflect it today, I'm having one of those moments were I'm just feeling overwhelmed.... laundry needs to be done, work needs to be done, walking needs to be done, blah blah needs to be done ;) ........ fast forward 10 minutes after I typed that. Just talked my husband he told me not to worry about anything ... everything can wait .. I just had major surgery and I need to focus on myself and do what makes me happy. I think that was a wise comment.

Chelle, u r too funny. As women we r just used to taking care of most things ourselves. Definitely rest your body while you can. When someone else has to take over for a while, they ready appreciate us more :-)

@@chellede the world according to eggface blog is from August 27,2007 and is labeled puréed foods. Also may I recommend , bake off some peeled and chopped onions potato and peeled Apple with garlic season, onion powder etc when everything is nice and soft throw in blender with some pumpkin purée and some Water. Yummy. Creamy with no dairy. May toss some olive oil in while baking potato etc.

Has anyone tried the New Whey liquid Protien ? If so how did you do with it? I had my sleeve done on the 16th I have doing pretty good with everything thing until today. When I tried the liquid protein... It did not agree with me at all.

Hey guys surgery was Friday, I was not one of the lucky ones w/an easy recovery. I had Lots of pain. I Stayed in the hospital two days because of my intense pain & my inability to walk more than twice.

Pain is not as severe today, suprisingly I never had gas pain, just surgerical pain.But I do feel I still need pain meds. I prefer to use natural means so I've tried ice packs on my belly (helped some) ) but feeling like I need my pain med.

3 days since surgery, how long were you guys on pain meds?

I'm sorry you had such a horrible time with surgical pain. I'm glad you were finally feeling better enough to come home!

Kathy

my pain the little bit of pain that I had, was surgical also. I took pain medication while in the hospital once because I don't do very well with pain medication. I ended up having to take pain medication two more times maybe day four and a five and then that was it the soreness went down and the swelling went down some and I was much better. I hope you feel better soon.

OK so I just checked and of course there is no siggis yogurt to be found in my area. I'm still on the road in Texas and heading home tomorrow. I'm so ready to get home... I'm tired of unjury skim milk and Protein Water. I'm ready to play with some recipes. I need a little flavor in my life. Everything has gone as well as it could have. I continue to feel blessed with my recovery and the process in general. I haven't weighed since before my surgery so I'm excited to see if I've lost any weight or if I'm hanging onto it like I have in the past. As excited as I am to continue this journey at home I must confess that I am more excited to see, hold,kiss and sleep beside the wonderful man that is My Better Half!!

Best Wishes to all who are about to embark on this journey!!!
