Peek. Glad you to tolerated your food well. I think I'm gonna start mushies Sat so I am making my grocery list.Does anyone have ideas of what I should pick up?

I plan on getting my items tomorrow. I know eggs& tuna, but looking for more suggestion.I love trader Joe's, so going by there after dr appt Friday.

Peek,I know you don't like mayo but do you have an aversion to ranch dressing? Someone recommended adding that To canned chicken or tuna-just a thought.

How about this. Lets create a FB group, make it private and a few of us "techies" can test it out before the end of the month to make sure nothing is seen by anyone ! and I'm like Kathie, I love Bariatric Pal. I have two tabs open on my browser, FB and BP. Great to have so many people to talk to about this !

LOL Peek, yup, it is !!! Welcome to the group Peek's Ticker :P

I am also 2 weeks just started "foods". Refried Beans, low fat cheese, scrambled eggs, plain yogurt, refried beans, modified tuna/chicken salad. It's interesting what different facilities suggest. I am like several of you, surprised how full you get and how quickly. Them trying to get 3liters of Water on top of that! It's a challenge, but all well worth it!

@@annisa I'm a little nervous cause I start mushies one week after surgery. I'm grateful it's early but nervous about how my baby belly will tolerate it.

Kathy812 that's exactly how I feel. Am I going to overeat, mess this up, hurt the sleeve not know when to stop.

Just taking my time, paying attention to my body, not being distracted while I eat. One of the hardest things I have found, is not fringe able to drink whe I eat! I suppose I'll get over that!

Good luck!

So is it safe to say we are all worried that something is going to happen and we will not be successful?

I've been overweight my whole life. I've been looking at boards and people's stats, and I just feel there's no way that I'll ever get thin. I have that 'It won't happen to me, something is going to happen" feeling. Weird !

Hate this feeling tonight !

Congrats!!!! How did your new sleeve handle the Jello and broth?

It's going okay, but the gas pressure is right at my diaphragm so it is a little painful to swallow. I'm thinking it should be much better tomorrow!! The broth is actually pretty soothing.

Everyone, I am definitely happy to be on the mushy diet but my doctor doesn't even want me eating potatoes or cream of wheat or any grains. He said to only eat the high Protein for my three little meals. I would love a little baked sweet potato, lol. I will have some at the holidays!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
