Week 1 today! Jello has been an issue for me. Wondering if anyone else has had a problem with it. I don't know if i'm just not letting it dissolve enough or what exactly is going on. It gives my chest/heart area a weird feeling

Try smaller bites.
How much are you trying to eat? Don't eat more than 4 oz, like you would food or liquid.

I think it's some kind of ingredient or perhaps the thickness that isn't going down well. I can only take 2-3 half spoonful before stopping completely. My mom made homemade Jello for me and I didn't have a problem so I'm going to ask her to make more lol. I just never felt that way even when I had to eat it for pre-op

Just to be clear, you are using sugar free Jello right?

My mom makes it with a box of Knox Gelatin. Stevia, and unsweetened juice for flavor

Ok, but you know that's not sugar free, right? :unsure:

The juice if its actual "juice" would contain natural sugars.

Yes, this. I assume the juice is no sugar added, not actually sugar free?

Ah okay gotcha. It's both sugar free and no sugar added. It's Mexican and she makes it from dried hibiscus flower. She just boils the Water then adds the flowers until it reaches a deep purple color

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
