Am I doing okay?

Recommended Posts

Okay... need some guidance/confirmations here....I’m in full liquid /purée stage...

Surgery was Tuesday, went home Friday, started purée Saturday, and it’s Sunday...

Yesterday I had:

Apple sauce for breky (i found it takes my blood thinner med and dissolves well, plus I can finish the whole little cup, so I can ensure I get all my med)

About half an Atkins Protein Shake for lunch

Some Campbell’s Tomato bisque for lunch (only had a few bites)

More shake in the afternoon,

Apple sauce for dinner (wasn’t really hungry)

And some vanilla pudding with Protein powder mixed in for dessert.


I got about the same today, different Soups.

Yesterday got about 40’oz of Water / sugar free Powerade... today approaching 60oz...

I feel like I’m progressing okay... but my

Folks (who I’m staying with during recovery) more so my mom is on me every 20-30 minutes nagging about diet and what I’m eating...

telling me to calendar because I can’t decide what to eat...

I’m having trouble deciding what to eat because I have little appetite so I’m trying to decide on something that won’t make me Nauseated as I try to force it down cause I know I need to eat...

That’s sort of what I have been doing. A Premier Protein when I wake up, then my three meals have been either a yogurt, apple sauce, or Soup. And then another Protein Shake at night. But I’m at 68oz Water not including Protein shakes... some people count that into it.

I have been setting timers for drinking and eating. I am wondering if this is a cautionary thing my doctor suggests just to start? 1-2 oz every 10-15 minutes. Water or protein shake or food. I’m at 2 oz water/ protein shake per ten minutes and it goes down fine. [emoji1303]

Also, I totally am in same boat about having a hard time picking what to eat. No appetite really. Post op day 6. I through away three Soups I made because i didn’t really like the taste and didn’t want to waste my meal on it.

It sounds like your doing ok, I was 411 when I started and am currently 325, my surgery was 1/22/18, it fell off fast in the first mont but has slowed down, about 3-5 lbs a week, I eat what I can but I know what you mean about hard decisions and making sure you get enough in, it’s tough, I think your doing fine, keep up the great work

Sounds OK to me.

How about some scrambles eggs or pureed tuna or turkey?

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
