Any March 2018 Sleevers?

What is everyone doing to prepare for post op? Are you pureeing food and freezing it? I was told to puree approved food and store it in ice cube trays in the freezer- since that's the correct portion size...

Thoughts?

I don't actually do purees -- I go from Protein Shakes to Protein shakes+soft food to soft foods to regular foods.

I have a few homemade stocks frozen but I didn't want to do a bunch of freezing in case my stomach couldn't handle some of the items I froze. Some other sleevers have said that their tastes change a lot after the surgery so I didn't want to spend a lot of time making things that I wouldn't eat.

March 6 here!! Starting preop diet today. I am more nervous about that than I am the surgery...

Snap! I'm March 6th also. I'm 3 days into my 16 day preop diet, which is 14 days on Protein Shakes + meat/veggies. I'm finding it ok during the day, but a bit tougher in the evenings.

I'm doing terrible on this two week liquid diet. Seriously. It's so hard not eating. I'm so sick of shakes, I've never liked Jello or popsicles, and with a limit of one bouillon cube a day it's rough!! I'm forcing myself to eat the jello, but the days are just dragging by so slowly. I don't know how I'm gonna get through the next 8 days!!

The first day or so was tough, just getting the routine going and getting used to drinking all of the Water also.

I'm good with the Water. Of course, I spend more time in the bathroom than I do anything but the water isn't hard for me. I just feel awful, still, on day 6. At no point has this been easy, or easier. I keep waiting to get to that point.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
