Meal planning is still a work in progress for me. I only seem to be able to get either my liquid or my Protein in each day.

Had a bit of a weight loss stall but am down 27lbs since surgery so I'm not complaining

How far along are you?

I'm 20 days Post-op and I still can't drink more than 22oz of Water a day.

Hey CrissyBat. I'm a April 1st sleever too. I can do 40 to 50 Oz of liquids on work days that includes a coffee with Protein powder added. I'm terrible with liquids at home.

I'm having a hard time balancing times I can drink with meal times. I'm still kind of grazing. Tried some chili the other day, no bueno. I'm still trying to get the hang of this.

How is everyone else doing?

No problem with liquids, but am only getting in 30-40g Protein per day. I have just bought some unflavored protein to add to my food so hopefully it will help. I am only eating one meal a day and can only eat a few bites before I'm full.Thank goodness I'm getting my Vitamins and supplements in! At 3 weeks post Op I am down 12 lbs and one dress size.

1st WELCOME @@pictureitall

2nd Thanks for checking this thread out.

I can only get about 22oz of Water per day. Anything more makes me nauseous. I really do miss more Water. I do try to have a Protein shake a day. But that's all my liquids. And since surgery I haven't had any type of soda or coffee. I definitely drank both daily. So right now I keep telling myself I will treat myself to one of them when I get below 200 lbs. :-)

This week I actually started to feel hungry which worried me alot. I was able to eat a whole packet of Cream of Wheat without any problems. But I don't want to do that again. I'm scared about stretching my pouch and that a MAIN reason I started this thread. When I was able to get track with others who had surgery on the 1st, I never seemed hungry. Now it seems my stomach is talking to my backbone. So let's make this WLS work for us!!!

@ brandnewme!! There's my GIRL!!

Welcome!!! I'm glad you came over to the Dark side! HA! A little Star Wars Humor!

Great work on the liquids. I don't get that much. Is this all Water or a mix of different things? I'm about at the same level on protein.

Now as far as eating, I think I'm eating too much. I'm scared. So I'm trying to retrain my stomach and brain again. I think b/c I haven't had a follow up with my Dr yet, I'm just winging it and messing up. So that's why I need yall.

I get pretty full after 2 bites of food. Like uncomfortable, painfully full. Anyone else experiencing this? I'm afraid I don't know how to eat right for this size stomach & it's really frustrating!

I'm with you. I will be sleeved on Saturday. I have created a daily checklist for myself to remind me what I need to do as in drink x amount eat x amount of Protein. Going to see how I go with that and try and do a menu plan daily.

I could only wish I felt that way. I wish I knew the size of my pouch. I wish they would an x-ray or something and show me. I hope it gets better for you.

Today's meal plan

B Premier shake

L Pinto Beans

D chicken salad

20oz Water

I think today I could of done better, especially getting in at least 5 meals. But I was so busy at work, I didn't know if I was coming or going.

Ooh and on a weird note. My last glue binding over my incision came off today. I'm pretty excited about that.

Who had staples and who had glue?

How's everyone feeling today?

I had glue too, and I lost the last bit a few days ago. I still have sticky stuff from where my bandage was (for my drain) & it is tough to get off! I'm impressed with your meal plan @crissybat. If I don't get more calories in, I'm sure to stall. I see my surgeon next week and will talk to him about my concerns. Yesterday all I could stomach was. 1/4 cup of Soup, and 3 Protein Shakes ????

Ladies!

Let me tell you!!! Today I'm off so I decided to make a smoothie. I figured it was going to be alot but i could sip throughout the morning. So my smoothie included:

8 oz Almond Milk

1 scoop Unflavored Protein powder

1 banana

4 Strawberries

After 3 sips, I felt fullness!! Ooh I like!!! I walked away did some chores and came back and sipped again. FULLNESS!!!

So about an hour and half later it was time for food, so I measured out 1/4 c. chicken salad. With my 1st Baby spoon. I still felt the FULLNESS!

OOH I WANT TO KEEP THIS FEELING! IDK if it was the shake or what, but this is what i always want to feel like. Instead of the bottomless pit. So I'm going to continue the shake for a few days and see what happens. :-)

You are the woman getting in 3 Protein Shakes. I can only do 1.

I never even had bandages. This glue stuff was amazing. I never thought to ask about what the Dr. was going to use beforehand.

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

      2. OhMyGawdItzKla

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
