17 days post op from Rny. All seems good except the feeling of pressure in the lower abdomen. I had my first post op appt and lost 9 lbs and the doctor was more than pleased. She said it's only two weeks out and there is still swelling etc but all is looking great.

Having a little problem getting enough Protein. Started stage 3 diet and it felt a little heavy so stepping back to cream of wheat and protein pudding. Time will heal all and I just have to be patient.

One day out from rny. It's still surreal that I finally got my surgery. I'm on Clear Liquids for another day then I can go to full liquids. I've been sipping Water and Premier Protein clear all day. Had an ounce of chicken broth for Breakfast and another one for dinner. Oh and like 3 tiny bites of Jello. Don't want to push it lol

8 days post-op from sleeve! Feeling better and actually went to my surgeon’s office’s monthly support group tonight. Granted, I’m exhausted now, but I met some awesome people who helped me feel better (I’m currently feeling crappy about mom guilt and just so tired of liquids) and I’m looking forward to seeing them next month.

I'm so excited for everyone that has surgery coming up soon. I'm still a ways out, but I'm leaving on vacation soon and when I get back I'll only be one month away. So yay!!

July 12 actually, but who’s counting...1,2,3. LOL

good luck! The wait to get scheduled is the worse!! Once you know the date, it helps but it’s still exciting.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
