I am SOOOOO proud of myself today!!! Went to Walmart and got a few things. Because I dont drive we sit in at McDs until it is time for bus. I usually get the bkfst w/o meat or the big mac w/o meat. Today I bought a salad at walmart but when we got to McDs(inside Walmart) i just got a side salad and a coffee! Best of all I didn't eat the entire salad. Lol I even used my own dressing I bought at Wal-Mart.

I was vegetarian for awhile. The funny thing is, go to subway and get all the veggies you normally would without the meat and you'd be surprised that you probably won't even miss it. My problem was to much Pasta and carbs [emoji30]

I can imagine it could work at subway lol but i cant see a big mac without meat being worth anything :P But yeah i have done that at subway type places before ( I was veggie briefly in my teenage years ha )

Yes I go to subway but for some reason their sandwiches make me sick now. Their salads hurt my stomach even. bread after wls isn't good anyways. So im just changing my diet 360.

I have not had the same experience, but was an ovo vegetarian for 3 years. I still eat a mostly vegetarian diet with fish/turkey incorporated (have to right now). Once I am farther away from surgery, I will probably move back or at the very least become a pescatarian. I just have to get better at getting my Protein without the addition of mock meats, whey Protein Shakes and CHEESE! I love egg whites, but just can't stand to eat them everyday. Veggie Protein is nasty to me, and very chalky as well. I will figure something out, because I just don't want to go back to animal foods being 60%+ of my diet long term. I feel better at 20% or less. I would be interested in hearing ideas about getting protein in without meat, mock meats, whey protein, cheese and milk, and/or an excess of tofu/soy products. The sheer amount of food I was able to take in in one sitting helped me reach my protein goals before (5-7 cups), but this will not be enough while I can only consume 1/2 cup of food.

I have come across Bone Broth for a great way to have protein without the meat. there is a lot on google on how to make. it is so cheap to make as well. after i make it i freeze it in ice cube trays then place in zip lock bag in freezer. when i make Beans, veggie, lentils, eat i place a cube of it in food to melt and it adds great flavor to veggies and the protein i need. check it out.

Sadly the protein in Bone Broth is not the total protein you need. It's a great ADDITION to protein, since it's very high in collagen/gelatin. But if you depend on the protein from bone broth to fund your total daily protein, you will not be getting in solid, quality stuff. This is coming from my RD, not me. Sorry to bear bad news.

I doubt she was counting on just the bone broth to meet all of her daily protein needs? It can be in addition to all of other things you eat that also have protein.

For instance, I might add some tofu to a dish to bump up the levels of protein for that one meal, but I would still drink my shake and or eat other things throughout the day to meet my goals.

Thanks Chil for your post of bone broth.

I've been vegetarian for 47 years and even I am wondering what the hell I'm going to do for Protein. I was not a very good vegetarian (hence me having to get surgery) - I relied on bread, cheese, pastas, etc. I get my surgery done next week and I'm kind of winging it I guess. I will figure it out as I go. Nothing like being thrown in at the deep end :)

Frou I feel you. From the surgery I became lactose intolerant and bread upsets stomach so that is a plus there. For Protein I do different kinds of nuts/seeds(careful to not overdue it on them because it's easy), different types of Beans (kidney and black are my fav), vegetables and ofcourse the organic vegan Protein Powder among other things. I go off and drink the WAS pre made Protein Drinks from Walmart at times along with the great value protein bars(0 carbs 0 cholesterol and 10 protein). If you wanna have more contact I'll give you my email or Facebook messanger name. There is alot more that I have to tell you....

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
