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

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

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
