Travel tips for Puree Stage



Recommended Posts

Hi
I was sleeved 7/24 and am trying to get prepared.

I will be traveling on a mini vacation during what should be the beginning of the puree phase, I go to the doctor and the nutritionist in a few days, but I'm trying to plan ahead. The first 4 days will be staying with a relative, so I'll have access to a kitchen and am not worried. The second half will be at a small hotel with a microwave and fridge. Would it make sense to buy a portable blender, and a strainer or two? Eat in my room while my hubs and parents get real food :)? Any gadgets that will make life easier?

Thanks in advance!

I think you're overthinking it. Staying in the room while everyone else goes out to eat sounds depressing. Enjoy your vacation, go out to dinner. There is always Soup on the menu, and most likely other things as well. Pack a stash of food that you can eat if you get hungry. Shelf stable hummus, unsweetened apple sauce cups, bring some Protein Powder and a shaker bottle.

It's not the best, but my family eats out a lot and I also travel with work. I tend to pack a lunchbox to take with me places. While I was on the liquid stage, I would pack my Protein Shakes and Jello and sit at Wendy's and eat with my family. And I travel for work too and just try to stay within my diet restrictions.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
