I just ate two stale saltines. I’m so nauseous. Preop I would eat a pickle or something salt and vinegar flavored. Of course the clear pops are a no go.

Nothing appeals to me, I went inside the grocery store earlier and had to cover my nose. Name a food for the purée and liquid stage and I guarantee I’ve tried it , liked it once and eventually no longer liked it.

I want to take another shot at tuna with miracle whip instead of Greek yogurt. Maybe add a finely smushed egg? I’m nervous because the thought of ANY seafood makes me 🤢. So maybe I should try a couple of spoonfuls of Wendy’s chili and pray.
What about chicken? I've seen some of the pouches like the tuna but with chicken. I'm not a big fan of fish either but love chicken.

I have hit my first weight stall I weighed yesterday at 346.8 and today at 348.2 all I had yesterday was a Starbucks tall (which is their small) Americana decaf with pumpkin spice, a fuzzy navel fruit Protein Shake, some creamy chicken Soup that was Protein filled, and another protein shake along with my Water bottle I sipped from all day.

This week I had a couple days where it stayed the same or didn't move at all. The next day the scale moved. I weigh everyday which is not good but I want to know what is working and what is not working so far. Maybe it was the about of Fluid. Did you urinate a lot or maybe you might need to number 2. Sorry to be gross. BUT DONT BE DISCOURAGED. I was and I had to snap myself back.

I weigh every day as well and I know I am not supposed to as well. I just do. I am not too concerned with it but it is a notable change.

Only thing I can see and it's probably grasping at straws, condensed Soups are notoriously high in Na also known as Sodium, an Fluid-Bloater of the first Water. FYI fun fact , after being on sodium, low fat, lie-cal, high Protein diet presurgery, they had piggy back sodium on top of normal saline because I was deficient, who would have thought?

The Soup was a Baritastic high Protein soup I had lots of Water throughout the day. I think it was just an off scale day. I saw my PCP today and his scale said 350.2 and I had left my shoes on. I am not complaining about that number at all. He was pleased with how well everything was doing and wants to see me again in one month to monitor meds to see what we can lower the doses of or take me off of all together.

My doctor uses the Patch MD vitamin patches instead of pills. I love this as I don’t have to worry about when to take them. Just put a new one on each morning after my shower and wear for 8 hrs. I love this.


So do I. I use the multivitamin but thinking about getting Biotin. They're so easy to use.

I’m doing the Tespo Bariatric liquid vitamins and my doctor called in a weekly nasal spray B12. Once I started these I started feeling much better!
Hello planochick! How've you been?

The Premier Protein send to more pose a problem for me. I lived in that stuff after my previous surgery last year but after this rny.... it tends to cramp me sooooo bad that it's ridiculous! I hate this because that was my only hope of even getting closer to Protein requirement!

Hi KBridge,

I’m well. Traveled last week for work and it was tiring! I had my first bite of real food last night and that tiny amount of chicken salad might have been the best thing ever. Super frustrated that the scale didn’t move the whole week I was gone though. Ugh! Like how is that possible. I’m hoping I was swollen from flying.

Still some pain on left side but so much better. How are you?

I'm planning on adding some variety the First of the Month when I get paid. Someone said it encourages. facial hair, no big deal , thanks to PCOS, which should be sleeping. because of my age, I have had facial hair since 27, so I need now to shave or pluck more often? At least I will have enough hair to comb instead of arranging with a damp washcloth!💦

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy

      The sad dejected truth that you are not the same size in a plush padded vs. Lacy unlined bra. And should have known it. Sigh.

        Guess the new bra/panty set was a bust?

        I see what you did there!

        Also, boobs are dumb. I'm pretty sure I'll be tucking mine iento my socks in a few months!

      3. GreenTealael

        I see what you did lol

        They still kinda work but only by accident 😓, I couldn't find my exact size so I decided to play around with band/cup manipulation. But now I know padded bras may be adding a full cup size I don't own...

        I've been counting on that for years!

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...
