Have a chuckle at my expense



Recommended Posts

I described the one week liquid-only diet to my spouse (my team's version: 3 shakes or Soups per day, plus unlimited clear, sugar-free things like broth and Mios). He looked kind of nervous and said "I think maybe I should go somewhere else that week and just come back to take you to the surgery."

😂

(I mean, he isn't wrong. I'm going to spend the entire week hangry.)

I didn't turn out as hangry as I expected, but I did cry at one point over craving a bacon cheeseburger. I'm glad my boyfriend was understanding and supportive of my emotional hungry self. :lol:

I was also expecting to be VERY hangry and whiny and MEAN, especially since I was also weaning off a lifelong caffeine habit...BUT I actually wasn't bad! I was a little overly emotional a couple times, and definitely upset about cravings, but I was much more even-keeled than I had expected!

I have bought some of the Protein Soups (Bariwise broccoli cheddar -- they were rated highly, but I admit I haven't tried them yet), several boxes of no-sodium-added chicken Bone Broth (Jet.com sells them), a bunch of sugar-free Jello and sugar-free popsicles, some of the premade Muscle Milks (the 100 calorie ones), and Quest powder in vanilla and chocolate (pre-surgery, it's really only drinkable to me with some skim milk in there).

I haven't had the meeting with the nutritionists, yet. There might be other things I can have that haven't occurred to me yet.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
