One of my neighbors (96 years young!) is recovering from surgery. Baked some Peanut Butter blossoms and chocolate Andes Chip Cookies to help cheer her up!

Made the kids donuts for Breakfast and I forgot to add in the sugar to the batter. They still tasted good abs were sugary enough with the glaze and sprinkles.

5 weeks post op vsg

3/4 Sour dough bread

1 1/2 Tbsp. Camembert cheese

30lb weight loss post op

This was my first time since getting the surgery that I ate out and that I ate anything else than moosh. I was so anxious and even thought about not going but it was a mandatory work event that I couldn’t just cancel. I was genuinely surprised how well it went. I feel like I ate quite a lot. I’m okay with that though because my primary goal isnt maximum weight loss but an end to excessive yoyo dieting. I will most likely transition to more normal foods now given how well tonight went. I’ve been eating 400-500kcal and should be getting 800kcal after week five.

Do you use a deep fryer to make these?

I baked them in a donut pan. I was surprised how well them came out. Came to about 120 calories with the glaze and sprinkles.

These are definitely airy and don’t have that heavy feeling that fried donuts tend to leave. Definitely going to be making versions of them again.

After a month of drinking every dang meal, I have finally made it to the puree phase! I have to admit, I looked at every page in this thread during my 9 days of clears post-op and really liked what I saw here. So I wanted to take a moment to share what I've prepped for breakfasts and lunches for the next few days.

First Breakfast

For breakfast, I made:

-1oz egg whites
-1oz pate consistency chicken sausage
-1oz pulverized spinach artichoke dip (was planning on creamed spinach but this was easier and had a similar nutritional value per ounce)

Ate everything for my first go-around. It was everything I wanted and dreamed of.

First Lunch

For lunch, the menu was:

-2oz deli turkey breast sliced on a 1 (my program OKs slices on a 1 or less for purees... lucky me)
-1oz of fat free refried beans
-.5 oz red salsa to help moisturize the turkey and add a little flavor

There were also no survivors for this first try and my little container was emptied.

So far, I haven't felt any animosity towards these foods, so fingers crossed. Hope to share more appetizing-looking dishes in the future with true before/afters.

I 100% also read every page of this thread during my post op diet 🤣. I also spent an unreasonable amount of time looking at food videos on tiktok. That post op mind hunger is real.

So many salad lovers. I love them too but not without dressing. This makes me wonder if others have found better dressings. What are some favorite lower calorie salad dressings (with brands). I am a ranch lover and I have found a low calorie dip alternative (ranch dressing seasoning mixed with plain Greek yogurt) but I haven’t yet found a good low calorie dressing, ranch or otherwise that I like so far. Suggestions please.

Have you tried Walden Farms Dressings?

My friend used to get their stuff and she even ordered me the ranch and I never tried it. It just looked so watered down, then I forgot all about it. Possibly still at the back of my pantry but I’m sure it’s expired. She didn’t like ranch so she couldn’t say. Another person here mentioned the brand though. Have you tried the ranch?

I have. I mean for me it was not bad being what it is and having zero everything. LOL I only use a little bit anyway if and when I do use dressing so definitely doable. But everyone is different.

But to be honest, if I were to only eat salads and require dressing very only every now and then or even once or twice a week, I'd probably just get a lite version from the supermarket or even the regular one. I doubt using so little of it so infrequently would be an issue.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
