chicken broth Protein?!?!? Mmmmmm. Please tell me more. That sounds delicious.

My nutritionist recommended Bone broth Soup. I bought Pacific Foods chicken Bone broth it has 9 grams of Protein and I am adding flavor free Isopure if I need more protein. My liquid diet of premiere protein, bone broth and Water starts tomorrow. My surgery is April 5th. I know this is getting real because my hospital called and asked for my copay.

I usually love broth, but the beef broth I bought and I believe it's bone broth is too salty. I can't tolerate it.

I'm getting my husband to pick up a different brand. I'll use what I have leftover in cooking their food. Maybe they won't notice. Lol

I don't have a surgery date yet, but have been trying different liquid things.

I really like the chicken broth/soup from Unjury. It has 20 grams of Protein. Unjury also has pea protein that I like added to Soups. For some reason unflavored whey protein adds a strange aftertaste/texture to soups that is just disgusting to me.

Everyone has different opinions, those are just my few favorites. I would also like to hear other people's ideas.

No matter what, find a Vitamin routine that works for you and remember not to take Calcium and Iron at the same time. supplements for life are important; vitamin/mineral deficiencies can be serious. I am a nurse and have seen all sorts of bad stuff happen to bariatric patients that don't take thier Vitamins.

Don't let it be you!

What happens mixing Calcium and Iron?

Calcium can block the absorption of Iron.

Calcium blocks Iron absorption.

Vitamin C helps iron absorption.

Just make sure you take calcium supplements separate from your Multivitamin.

Opurity/Unjury has calcium supplements and Vitamins that are meant for bariatric patients. I realize this is the second time I am recommending Unjury, I don't work for them or anything. I just find it easier to place 1 online order for all my stuff instead of going to a bunch of stores.

I took care of a young man who didn't take his calcium after gastric bypass and his teeth started deteriorating. He was sweet, I felt bad for him.

If I'm not mistaking. I'm thinking its about an hour from Columbus. My husband and I moved from Columbus to here in 2015. We lived there for 8 years. You live in a small town that Columbus people call "Country". Lol. It's a small world. Very nice to meet you.

      As of last Friday, I dropped back into Onderland!!! Can't believe it! Last time my weight started with a one was at least 10-15yrs ago. Pic from this Saturday with my hubby and his mom at our house warming party. Other pic is me at my heaviest last summer. The transformation blows me away! As a reward for hitting this big milestone, I'll be signing up for a horseback trail ride - the first one I've been able to do in over a decade due to weight restrictions. I'm sooo excited!! I'm also training for my first half marathon - ran my first 10k on Sunday  It's incredible what I'm able to do now, and everyday I'm thankful for this amazing tool that is helping me realize some big dreams.

      So, getting finances in order, I managed to sell my 2016 Toyota Avalon. It was a beautiful car, of which surprisingly, I’m doing fine without and I actually don’t miss it; and also of which resulted in having a one-vehicle household, which resulted in me HAVING to walk 2.2 miles everyday 5x a week to get my daughter to school. I’m actually quite glad, I’m feeling better/stronger again, and I dropped almost $20,000 of debt. WIN-WIN!

        Awesome sauce!!!

      2. FluffyChix

        Yay!!! That's incredible on so many levels! Yay you! (You wouldn't have been able to do it if you didn't have the surgery and re-birth!"

        Maybe you should look at practicing your nutrition stuff from home?

      3. Creekimp13

        Car debt is the bane of my existence. Wont do it. And I love Toyota...I drive (and LOVE) my 2015 Camry...so I know how hard that was. Absolutely awesome you're getting the walking in, instead. Love that so much! Also teaches good habits to the kiddo....which is brilliant.

        Speaking of kiddo and cars..I've spent the last three months combing the web for a used car for my daughter. She has a summer job lined up here and needs a car to get to various labs and sample sites....and I won't let her go into more debt. (she has minimal student loans and will graduate next year with her microbiology degree)

        I found her a 2008 Malibu from Tennessee, clean inside and out...with just barely 100K on it...and I'm feeling incredibly accomplished. $3000, we paid cash :) CarFax is clean, mechanic said it was in great shape and she should get a few years out of it yet. Very common car with cheap parts if repairs are needed in the future. Previous owner did a valve job and replaced timing chain, and all maintenance was done at dealership. Brand new tires and brakes.

        It's parked in our driveway as we speak. Runs and sounds like brand new.

        I can't wait to see her face:)

      4. Mattymatt

        Well that's awesome! Keep up the good, positive work. :-)

      5. Newme17

        Lol. Cute...I like that “awesome sauce!” @Sleeve1stFitNext!

        @FluffyChix there’s so much that I probably wouldn’t have done if I didn’t have this surgery! I’m still so glad I did too. I seem to work better when being “forced” in to situations. Lol

        @Creekimp13, we’re Toyota lovers here. A former Avalon, and two former Tundras...currently on our third Tundra...and have always had a car payment! Ugh! We’re doing this Dave Ramsey program that’s making a lot of sense to us and so there went the Avalon. Also in the process of maybe getting a cash car...speaking of which, you were hugely blessed for what you found! Wow! That’s the kind of deal I want. I told the hubby not to buy one yet though, I’m enjoying the walks and the time with my kids walking. Definitely good habits being taught. 😊

        @Mattymatt thanks hon! Its hard to be in the dumps when there’s a win on both sides! Yay!!!

      Tonight's experiment: wonton wrapper lasagna (made with ground turkey and a Greek yogurt cream cheese/mozzarella/cheddar/spices mix instead of ricotta, which I don't like) and tacos (made with taco meat pilfered from my sister's supper). In the oven now!

      · 8 replies
      1. istytehcrawk

        The wonton wrappers are 31 carbs (1 fiber and 1 sugar) for eight wrappers; each lasagna/taco uses two wrappers. At my one-month follow-up, my surgeon said just to worry about protein/liquids, not the other macros, and she said to work toward 1,000-1,200 calories per day, but that it'd take a while to get there (I'm averaging 500-700 per day currently, with at least 60 carbs).

      2. FluffyChix

        How were they? They look great!

      3. istytehcrawk

        Haven't tried the taco ones yet, but the lasagna ones are AMAZING. Like, as good as or better than regular lasagna.

      4. istytehcrawk

        Update: the taco ones are okay, but the lasagna ones are SO MUCH BETTER.

      5. Creekimp13

        YUM! Gonna steal this!

      My jeans were literally starting to fall off me, so I caved today and bought a pair of 26/28s to hold me over until capri weather hits, hopefully in the next few weeks.
      The important part, though, is that I bought them at WALMART! I haven't been able to buy pants there in YEARS because they didn't go to my size. Unfortunately, I still had to pay $17 (so much better than the $60ish at Catherine's though), because the 26s that were on clearance for $9 were still too small to be comfortable. SOON, though!
      · 6 replies
      1. istytehcrawk

        I probably would've held off with buying them, but mine were so baggy they looked awful, and I'm a reporter so I have to look at least semi-presentable and the 28s just didn't fit that bill anymore -- after only about a month!

      2. Mattymatt

        That's a really great feeling! Keep up the dedication. :-)

      3. Newme17

        Oh yes, appearance is good for business, I get ya! I don’t really work now, so leggings and T-shirt’s is all I ever wear. I’ve decided that my church attire needs to be amped up from my regular attire. Lol. Gonna try to find some dresses. How about dresses? Do you like them? They can be forgiving, as you go down in size, I think.

      4. istytehcrawk

        Never been a fan of dresses, no. That may change as I shrink, but I doubt it.

      5. Newme17

        Exactly how I feel about them...although my thoughts have slightly changed...SLIGHTLY! I’d have to try a bunch on to see which doesn’t highlight my now-still belly. Haha!
