I just watched a YouTube video of this process. You are a brave soul and you did it! I’m so glad no issues were found. One step closer. [emoji6]

Yeah, those videos are LIES!! Lol! I watched them to prepare myself and everyone seemed calm and relaxed. No way, I coughed, gagged and belched all over the dr. :). Biggest belch ever - sounded like Barney on the Simpsons.

Congrats to all the March sleevers! I’m on March 12th and freaking out a bit. Mostly about waking up with a breathing tube or catheter still in for some reason. I’m on week 2 of a two week full liquid diet. Week 1 was brutal and I cheated with some Diet Coke. This week was a lot better and I haven’t craved Diet Coke (the last thing I want is more artificial sweeter). I did eat an entire box of sugar free pudding last night after getting some bad news. Still a binge, so not great, but at 240 calories not the end of the world.

Had my surgery Monday. Have only been able to get in Water and 2 Protein Shakes a day and that literally look me all day. Today is the first day I had an appetite so I made this and it is absolutely delicious even if I can only eat a spoon full!! IMG_1096.JPG

I’m having a bit of a time judging how much I can eat. I typically try for 1/4 -1/2 of a cup. Even then it really just depends on what I’m eating.

I haven’t had any issues with the types of food thank goodness. I’ve tried Soups, ricotta bake, meatballs (chicken), mashed cauliflower, yogurts.

Today I had my first experience overeating by mistake. I tried some mushed avocado with tzatziki sauce. It was delicious and I didn’t even eat half of the avocado but I got the bloated can’t burp and wanna vomit feeling for about an hour! 🤢 it was awful.

This really is a learning experience. Trying to get in calories and Protein from actual food when you can barely eat.

Try going by weight rather than by cup size - I've found measuring out 2-3 oz is a lot better indicator than volume.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
