Okay, so I’ve learned something from the last few pages here.

1. Hospital food always has and always will suck out loud.
2. Wait til honeymoon period is well and truly over to have plastics so when my sleeve becomes more stretchy I can use the surgery as a reset.
🤣🤣🤣

@sillykitty WHAT is that??

Yes, it was some egg bake thing 🤣

I am almost sad to not have those meals now. It was like a fascinating train wreck. Everytime I was excited to uncover the dome and see how bad it could possibly be. One of the benefits of not having an appetite I guess!

Pretty much ...only the Pasta with creamy sauce and the fried chicken were edible. Even the Desserts were bad??

I did learn that I only like beets cold .... hot beets, not so much 😂

Okay so we really do love long posts.
I’m the queen of them TBH.

it really sucks to get stuck in an emergency situation and not know exactly what’s in something, but I feel like you made a fine choice.
Besides, it’s not like you planned to go off course and you’ve been planning and staying the course so it’s all good.

One day back when I was still in the first 4 months post-op, I had a similar situation.
Left my cottage cheese out in my car and it was a few hours before I realized and it was prolly at least 90 degrees outside.
So I ordered lunch off of my Panera app (we don’t get breaks at my job and I’m prohibited by law to leave the premises) and got a turkey avocado sandwich.
Even though I ate only the insides, I got a piece of bread in a bite and it tasted God-awful and made me feel horrible that I had left my planned lunch in the car.
After that, I brought emergency food to work like packets of bari-oatmeal and the bariatric hot cocoa that I keep in my cubby.

Oh well, we live and learn.

True, I just don't won't to sabotage myself so I tend to over think everytime I eat something that I bought or didn't cook.

I didn't even think about how my body would react if I ate normal bread. Hopefully now you are able to eat whole grain carbs here and there. I have a mini fridge on my desk where I keep fairlife milk but maybe I need to keep an emergency meal in there. Thanks!

IMO, dealing with real life eating is a good skill to have. You won't always be able to only eat food you cook yourself. Additionally, succeeding after WLS does not require perfection. Plenty of us have had great success, and have eaten non ideal foods :)

And about stomach stretching....

I just finished watching the whole video and its crazy how info varies between doctors. I was told to not do any of these myths, except the carbonation. My surgeon and dietician said that doesn't stretch it just all depends on whether I tolerate the gas or not. Its definitely something to think about, but you're right. I won't always be able to eat food i cook so I guess its another skill I need to learn.

So many things i need to learn! lol my list keeps getting bigger and bigger.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
