I have my first progress report to share. 7 days post-op & I am down exactly 20 pounds

You're off to a really great start. Congratulations! I think we had surgery on the same day. Today I'm post-op day eight and I'm down 12 lbs.

I got all excited about that Tomato Soup but it has 13g sugar including added cane sugar. I got Imagine brand because it had a lower fat and carb content and also got the butternut squash Soup. How adventurous! Lol

The Pacific Organic butternut squash Soup overwhelmed my palate with its, um, complexity. To me it tasted like a mix of Hot Egg Nog + Yellow Curry Power + Mackerel Oil + Tree Bark.

Still, YMMV. I do have some friends that swear by it!

(I merely swore AT it tho)

Goooood luck :-D

I am finally able to start cream Soups today. Had my first 4 oz of Protein shake with no problems yesterday evening. I went to Trader Joe's yesterday and stocked up on soups! Little does my husband know he's also going to be eating Soup for a while! Yesterday was a rough day for me with the head hunger and some depression. I think today will be much better since it will have some sort of structure with my meals!

Congratulations on your new Journey. I'm sure there are a lot of emotions going on, you made this decision to have a healthier lifestyle definitely remember that. I'm totally expecting depression to set in as I kind of have it now, and I'm only on my 3-day pre-op diet. thank you for sharing the soups I totally forgot about Trader Joe's, need to go there before my surgery ASAP.

I lived on those soups! They're some of my nutritionist's favorites. The black bean and creamy Tomato are to die for.

Thanks for sharing the soups! I got Imagine brand Butternut squash Soup and am enjoying it very much. The biggest challenge right now seems to be getting enough Protein and calories. I'm so sick of Protein shakes and Protein poops. I guess I'd better get used to it!

I'm having the Black Bean Soup now and it is really good! For the first time I feel like I'm actually eating! It has a good bit of black pepper in it so that's going to make it hard waiting to drink my water! I know I'm not going to hit my Protein goal today at all. I wanted to try the soup before adding the GENEPRO to it first to make sure I like it! I will try adding a scoop at dinner tonight!

@@dmw0621,

I was off bariatricpal for awhile, a big congrats on your surgery. Mine is Wednesday the 21st in Tijuana. I can't believe how December has flown by.

I love all the stuff you love at TJs. I saw the stuffed lobster but it was like $400 so I passed! The shitake green bean chicken stir fry is really, really good, too, and the chicken isn't breaded. I put a half bag of fresh, ready to eat broccoli florets in it when I make it and people always rave about it. Delicious way to get some vegetables. It's a lot like Panda's Green Bean Chicken.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
