Hello Everyone. Today I'm digging deep as I woke up feeling down and emotional...the y did I do this has crossed my mind...Im trying to stay positive but it's hard. I got sleeved 7/3. Since surgery I'm down 10lbs. I have worked myself up to drinking 2 shakes, sugar free ice pops, broth, 24 oz of Water, cream of wheat 4oz.

Today is day 11 and I can start pureed foods. I need help. Any suggestions ??

The first few weeks for me were emotional as well. I am about to start week 5 and I still feel a little out of whack. If you like refried Beans I would try that. I made a crockpot of pinto beans and made my own. That way I could control the sodium and sugar. I added a little enchilada sauce and reduced fat cheese. Cottage cheese is also something I am eating a lot. I made a recipe from my doctors website that was basically puréed ground turkey meat, ricotta cheese and low sugar marinara sauce. It wasn't as good as lasagna but it was tasty. Good luck with the upcoming weeks!

Thank you for your words of encouragement. I know the first month is hard. I feel like I'm losing slowly. May I ask how much have you lost so far?

I'm in the puréed food stage right now. For lunch today I marinated a chicken breast, grilled it, and puréed it with some chicken Bone Broth in the blender. It was really good and will probably last me several days. I could only eat a few tiny bites. My program requires strictly Protein during the purée stage.

This recipe sounds great, but my program does not allow tomatoes or Tomato sauce until 75% of excess weight loss (along with all starchy veggies and carbs). Tomato sauce may be the hardest thing to go without for me because it is so versatile.

It's so interesting to read how different everyone's post op diet is. I'm in puréed stage and I eat a lot of tomato basil Soup. It's been a staple since starting this stage. I'm 15 days post op.

I started my liquid pre op on June 6 and since then I have lost 23 pounds. I hit the expected and much talked about 3 week stall :). Thankfully I read enough posts to not get upset when the scale didn't move much. I haven't weighed this week yet. It's that time of the month and I don't want to get discouraged.
