Congratulations @New Challenge, my new Down Under friend. I'm still in training but next month💥 July💥I will receive my "call up" to the major leagues and become an RnY myself. Started my journey in August 2015, many ups,down, hairpin turns, a roadblock in February, luckily it didn't stop me completely, and I CAN SEE the Finish Line ahead. Not sure of exact date, maybe middle-ish but I do believe it will happen! Did you know our joking bypasser phrase?
We all become Kangaroos because we leave Operating Theatre with our very own pouches. So I will,become a Kangaroo Kid and I am already bouncing in anticipation!💥🚩💥😛💥🚩💥

I feel great. Never used my pain meds. Only used Tylenol sporadically for first week. Slowly introducing soft foods. 4 oz of hamburger yesterday went through the blender. I prob had only 1 oz before feeling it. The rest went to the freezer and I will try again later. Scrambled egg and cheddar was amazing!

Hi I’m new to this thread. I had a sleeve revision to bypass on 6/18 and hate clears. I feel I want substance like stage 2. I’m hungry perhaps because I haven’t been cleared to start Protein Shakes yet. Anyone else feeling hungry ?

Hi! I just had my RNY on the 18th. Im still having trouble meeting my daily quota of clears but i have been drinking clear Protein Shakes as a part of the clears. Premier Protein makes a great tropical punch one. I only drink like 1 per day at the moment. Im more focused on Water, propel, Decaf tea, and popsicles. Do you have any advice about getting more clears in?

@Buonnatale how was your pain afterwards?

I remember waking up in recovery in a lot of pain... then I just kind of passed back out from the anesthesia. Once I got to my room, I slept the rest of the afternoon and got up to start walking. It was tolerable but there was definitely pain. Every day got easier, for sure. When I got home after two days in the hospital, I took percocet for the pain but only needed them for a couple days, then switched to tylenol. I think the most uncomfortable thing for me was sleep on my back. A recliner definitely helped! I am however a side sleeper... I had issues with sleeping once I started feeling better because of this.

Hi there: I've lost 10 lbs. in 10 days on my pre-op diet. So thrilled! My goal is to lose 100 lbs. total so I feel good about the jump start as I have 90 to go. My surgery date is 4 days away. Eeeek! @Hal711 - I think I'll order some of those fruit Punch Premier Protein waters. They sound great!

How long do we have to sleep on our backs? I'm a side sleeper too.

I am a belly sleeper, which is not happening. I have used plenty of pillows to prop up in bed, which helps.

I slept on my side last night and am currently laying on my side. It hasn't bothered me. I'm a stomach sleeper and I'm too scared to try that lol

Yay! Good to know the side sleeping is working. I got a pregnancy pillow so hoping that will aid some relief in early days along with lots of extra other fluff.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
