Glad you’re losing! I’m 2 weeks post op and not really losing at all. I got rid of all of the 10lbs water/gas weight I gained post op but have only truly lost 3lbs so far. Trying not to be discouraged by the scale not budging 😩🤦🏽‍♀️

I'm sure we'll experience a loss soon? We have to! I'm sure our bodies are just in starvation mode right now. What is your diet like right now? I'm curious about everybody. I'm feeling a little more hungry today as I haven't had much food at all post-op. I do fill fast though. I'm planning on adding another Protein Shake per day to the below:

Water - 45ish ounces per day - trying to drink as much as possible

Breakfast - 1 Premier Protein shake

snack - sugar free pudding

lunch - maybe like a 3/4 cup Creamy Soup - strained

dinner - 2 oz. low sugar Yogurt

Did you do measurements? Honestly that’s the only thing that kept me semi sane when the scale wasn’t moving

As much as I used to obsessively measure myself, I not only forgot to do preop measurements but I haven’t measured myself at all! I probably really need to. Thanks for the reminder to do so!

@Jessbear345 - your tuna and soup sound yummy! I'm excited to graduate to puree's in a couple days.

@ALFxRNY - I feel you on the stall. I E-Mailed my doctor's office to see if they could send me my measurements they took in the office because I too have not been measuring. Great tip and reminder though because although the scale is not moving, I do feel a wee bit thinner. Jeans are a little loose today.

I did measurements and got sad because they were bigger measurements than what I took when I was in the 300s. I don’t know what is going on with my body. My clothes are a little looser but I’m not really seeing changes. I go back to my surgeon’s office early August so I’ll try to give my body time to adjust

@ALFxRNY - my follow up is in mid-August too. You must be holding on to some Water weight. I'm sure you'll see a loss soon. You're nice and tall so everything is probably just trying to adjust around to the shock. Awesome job on the 35 lbs. already!!! What are your meals like right now?

Well 35 from when I first started my journey. Post op (including the 10 lbs I gained) I’ve lost about 14 lbs. I still look very swollen though. Hopefully the walks will help. I’m just starting incorporate purées this week. My diet was just 60g of Protein (2 shakes a day) and 30-40 oz of Water. Sometimes I’d have a little broth to cleanse my palette of the sweetness of the shakes. As of yesterday I have incorporated a little bit of tuna (very tiny serving sizes) twice a day. And cool that we both have August follow ups. How is everything going on your end?

@ALFxRNY - You're doing everything you need to be. I keep telling myself that too. All we can do is be patient. I bet the walks will definitely help. Good job on getting in all that Protein. I think I'm going to try tuna on Sunday. Sounds yummy. I'm doing better. I think I passed a kidney stone this week. I'm still sore on the left side but it feels better today than yesterday. Once I feel the muscles have healed on the left, I'll be eager to begin some light working out. Right now, it's just daily walks/strolls.

A kidney stone! Wow! And I still have the soreness on the left side of my stomach too. I more over feel it if I move too quickly. Hope you feel even better soon and that you enjoy your tuna Sunday 😉

       Lunch time was my yummy dinner from last night. I made homemade turkey chili. I know, it's the middle of summer but I wanted something hardy and that was perfect with some sliced avocado & a tad of shredded Mexican cheese. YUM! I found the recipe that was titled "the best turkey chili recipe you will ever eat" and in fact, it was!
      My shake this afternoon is the Syntrax Nectar Kiwi Strawberry with a banana. I brought in my magic bullet blender to work since it's light and portable. I used water this time instead of the almond milk. Sipping it now at my desk, it's pretty good. I'd give this one a 5! The banana takes over and taste just like strawberry banana shake. Yum!
      Not quite sure what I am planning on tonight for dinner but since I had my main meal for lunch, it will consist of a dinner shake and a p.m. snack after (protein based of course- probably 2 hard boiled eggs.
       10 more days until surgery... I really hope my liver is teeny tiny from all of this!

      One week out and I am okay.  I am not in any pain and I still do not have gas.  I am feeling empty and no hunger.  I am getting my liquids down.  My doctors appointment is on Thursday.  The runs have slowed down to once a twice a day.  I am doing 30 mins of activity a day to the neuropathy in my legs  I want to try to do more there is nothing stopping me
      I do not feel anything emotion wise like happiness, second guessing, sadness, full of questions.  Some second thoughts as I am realizing the help of the surgery is changing your thought process.  I could eat but I can wash it out of my head. I wish I could do this with my legs.

      Checking in on this sunny Monday morning. For those who read my last update on Friday, I was having a funky week. I recharged the batteries. I spent a fun filled day a the pool yesterday and rode the water slide at least 10 times, yes... like a little kid! I made a work out date with a bestie for this evening. AND I officially, as of this morning, weigh two pounds less than my husband, and 9lbs away from ONEderland! It's amazing how quickly things can happen... I'm so blessed. So for now, its a good week. Love to all!
      OH and! My BMI has gone from 57 to 35.9  That's 21.1 difference. *mic drop*

      This weekend I found it difficult to write/journal anything with my dear soon to be 2 year old running around and keeping me busy. I have quite a few shakes to write about since Friday.
      Friday's continuation of lunch was the Syntrax Nectar Crystal Sky. I'd give this a 4. Reminded me of Kool-aid. Not too shabby and kept me full. 
      For dinner Friday I had my left overs of baked chicken, sauteed spinach with olive oil and garlic and steamed broccoli, potatoes and cauliflower. 
      For my pm snack, I had the Syntrax Nectar Wild Grape. I blended it with PB2. I should have just had it plain.  I think it would have tasted so much better. In my head  I figured it would have tasted like a pb and jam sandwich. Because of my experiment, I gave it a 2 and 1/2. LOL.
      Saturday morning I tried the Syntrax Nectar Cappuccino latte with pb2. Not bad. Some of these Syntrax latte's have that sweet after taste even though they say they are aspartame free. I have no idea what it is but I'm not a fan. The PB2 or banana kind of takes that away.
      Hubs took me to see a movie and my n-laws watched our son. I didn't think ahead so I grabbed a smoothie at the Jamba Juice to stay hydrated. I could have totally snuck in my own shake or drank water but I was tending to my son's needs ahead of mine. I need to learn to make more time for myself. I do have anxiety and this kicks in right before we leave to go out whether it's the family or just me and my hubs. My mother-n-law and father- n law are great with my son but sometimes they don't listen to instructions I give them and thus causes the anxiety to come out. Ugh. Anyway, back to it....
      So this Jamba Juice I had ordered was the PB Banana Protein and MAN did it have ALOT OF SUGAR IN IT. I should have made my own but I'm only human right....Yes, It was tasty but a medium size with 34g of protein, okay......58g carbs, 23g fat and ....eekk....49g of sugar .
      Not, the best choice. Again, I'm only human but I need to really research my nutrition info. before just looking up and seeing "oh protein, that's what I need, I'll take that, please" on the big board of what looks good.
      For dinner, I had a hoagie bowl from my local Wawa which was grilled chicken (all 3 stripes of it ) REALLY?!  packed with veggies and some honey mustard dressing. 
      Breakfast Sunday morning was Syntrax Nectar Strawberry Mousse. I swapped out water with almond milk and added 1/2 a banana. That was a 5 for sure! Very tasty!
      Lunch I tried the Syntrax Nectar Caribbean Cooler with almond milk and 1 banana. Tasted just like a daiquiri. So good. One of my favorites so far! 5!!!!
      Dinner I made turkey chili. Very good! High protein and so good!
      Breakfast this morning, I tried the Syntrax Nectar Vanilla Latte with 1 banana and almond milk. Bit of an after taste again. I need to find out what the hell that is. Again, all of these protein shakes are aspartame free yet, I have this horrible sugary, "sweet-n-lowy" kind of after taste. I give this one a 3.
