I liked the 100 calorie chocolate ones a lot. They have 25 grams of Protein. Would have those for Breakfast some days before surgery and used them through my pre-op diet. I haven't had any after, though. My surgeon and nutritionist told me not to drink them afterwards. They advised me not to have any protein powders or shakes with extra Vitamins. I've been using EAS shakes. They go for something like $26 on Amazon for 12 of them or $8 in Target for 4. Kind of expensive, but I like them. My nutritionist wasn't happy that they were 7 carbs, but was happy that I was able to tolerate them. Too many of the pre-made shakes have a bit of a tinny taste to me and this one didn't have it.

I used Muscle Milk Light (vanilla Creme). I found that blending in a half a banana improved the flavor.

I don't like any. What I found tbat tastes pretty good is actually the high Protein carnation breakfast shake. That has 15g of protein. I mix that with a scoop of chocolate premiere protein and some frozen banana and it's good

If your looking for a less processed shake, I find these to be delicious:

1/2 medium size banana

4oz unsweetened chocolate Almond Milk

3 tbsp Peanut Powder (I use Hoosier Hill Farm)

2 tbsp Ghiradelli unsweetened cocoa powder

274 calories

28g Protein

If you are worried about calorie intake, you can drop the cocoa powder, saving 40 calories and only losing 2g of Protein (234 calories, 26g protein).

Funnt to be reading this now. I'm in suburb to verify my airbag recall. They said they had one replacement left, so I wasn't prepared for the 2 hour job. Their waiting room has delicious looking Cookies. I walked right out and into the gas station quick mart next door. In my past life, I would have bought candy and ate the Cookies. Instead after walking around I settled on a muscle milk, 20 Protein, 100 calories and now sitting here drinking it and not at all intrigued with the cookies.

I like Unjury powder. I mostly use the unflavored. One scoop in 8 oz 1% milk is 28grams of Protein. The after taste of the premised shakes, especially the premier, makes me gag. I can handle Muscle Milk. Don't love it but you can find it just about anywhere.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
