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?

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
