I tablespoon unflavored Protein you can add to anything = 30 protein. How are you preparing? I sure would like to talk.

Hey Little Bird! I’m a December 19 sleever. I’m super nervous about doing pre op during the holiday season. I just bought my Protein Powder from Nicholson Clinic. Now I have to figure out what and where to buy Protein Bars. I also need to go through my list of foods and figure something out cuz I would just eat chicken and broccoli every night! I need a little variety.

I am also Dec 19th sleever and I have no idea what I am doing! I’ve really not made any modifications or sacrifices so far and feel weird that the strict liquid diet starts in 4 Days. It was such a long wait but now seems so sudden!

I’ve not heard of Generopro, but it sounds versatile! I’ve stocked up on Less Naked whey, fuel for fire pouches, and tropical fruit smash packs - all of which I really like.

I also purchased Gelatein protein Jello, and muscle milk pro which are pretty gnarly tasting but I hope to acquire a taste for [emoji51]

Hi ~ Welcome to the group. My Countdown for surgery on Tuesday at 8:30am!! I don't know about you but I've been so busy trying to get everything done for Christmas and some things in order. Tomorrow is my last "day" and so much to do.

Over the last week since my pre-op I've been a little anxious but now really excited! I had a lap band and now getting the sleeve. I have done the whole program with lap band and it's the same for sleeve. Let me know if you know to know anything. More than happen to help.

I'm scheduled for December 11 and doing my pre-op diet. My nutritionist has me doing Protein Shakes, but I'm allowed to eat green leafy vegetables, so that helps. There's a lot of collards and cabbage in my world right now. And herbal tea - so much herbal tea.

Mine is for dec 18, I am only doing shakes been on it since nov 20.

I swear some days I wanted to just taste a food I like and spit it out just so my craving is dealt with... But i've been REALLY good even if my boyfriend eats delicious meals infront of me I didn't cave in and stuck to the shakes. Office brought us Cookies and I resisted :49_triumph:

I am not hungry on the Protein Shakes it does upset my stomach at times tho. Another 14 days and I can say goodbye to those shakes and hello to broths! I am looking forward to broth soooo much.

I started buying my Jello and broth for my post op

I'm scheduled for December 11th. I don't have a pre-op liquid diet leading up to it but I'm definitely a worrier so I will be doing a gentle diet starting tomorrow. Protein Shakes, chicken and rice, some veggies... Hopefully that'll keep my digestive track going smoothly until Monday.

Howdy Kiddos!

I'm scheduled for the 12. Starting to freak out a bit. On the plus side I've lost 20 pounds in 6 days on the liquid diet. That's a huge motivator! My Pre-op is next Monday and I'll get my surgery time then. I so hope its in the morning. Less time to stress out.

      Today I actually looked small to myself! This is the lowest weight of my adult life... I cant even imagine being smaller. Only 20 lbs to goal 1 then re evaluate from there.

        I remember that day myself, walking around outside waiting on wife at doctor and turned corner and saw myself in mirrored office window. Stopped me in my tracks cause i think that was the first time i really saw i was not the same size.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        That must have felt amazing! Congrats! I certainly haven't felt "small" yet, but I did start seeing myself as more "normal" looking last week. I felt like I'd crossed the threshold of people seeing me and not immediately thinking "Wow, she's huge!"

      Another NSV - I am hitting either the elliptical or treadmill for 45 min in a row. I also am doing weights for my bat wings (the back of my arms) lol. I honestly would have never been able to exercise this long before. I was straining after 10 minutes. My work offers personal trainers in the workout facility (for a fee) and I am considering it to help me maximize my time working out. I don't want to always do cardio but I am not sure what weight exercises to do now.
      On another note, yesterday after my last meeting I went down to the fitness center and worked out. I didn't text home and ask if I could, I just took the time and did it and told them to start dinner without me. I got home at my normal time and it really didn't bother me that I didn't "ask permission" to take care of myself. I actually put myself first for once.

        putting your health and happiness first is really a form of putting family first. What good are you if your sick and miserable.

      Okay, I finally took another picture of myself. I don't see much change in my appearance but I realize we don't always see ourselves realistically! So here it is:

      I'm struggling. I've been stalled now for a couple weeks. I haven't really been tracking my food like I should be. I haven't been to the gym. Both things I know are bad. I logged my food for today and I'm sitting right around 1,200 calories and 115 grams of protein. 60 carbs. I'm not sure if I should be aiming for less calories at this point. Hmmm.... well. I will def be hitting the gym next week, hard. I'd say this week, but I'm swamped with stuff after work everyday. It's just not feasible. I have been staying extremely active though. Also, cutting out all fruit this week. Here's a pic from this past weekend!

        Honestly, Ash! You are young, pretty and in love! What is there to be down about?

      2. allwet

        Just ride this stall out AshAsh your numbers are fine. Do try to track more often but other than that just keep the faith it will break.

      3. KimTriesRNY

        You’ve lost a lot in a short amount of time. A stall is bound to happen sooner or later. Get back to tracking as a priority! You look great, and more progress will follow. It’s not a sprint with over a hundred pounds to lose, we have to learn to accept our bodies will take a break every now and then.

      4. Sleeved36

        Don't be so hard on yourself. Life happens and you have to deal with life. Even if you don't make it to the gym, go for a little walk in the evening. It will help your stress level and not make you feel bad about skipping the gym.

        You have made amazing progress and look great!

        Stalls are the worst and it is hard to be patient. The scale will keep moving just keep going!

      5. josephsmom

        I can never make it to the gym after work either; there is always something to do in the evening. What works for me is to go before work, at 6:00 AM. I am not a morning person, and it's hard to get up that early, but it's the only way I can get there. Maybe that would be worth a try for you too. Good luck!
