I am probably going to do shakes all day , then do a dinner at night . The whole no drink within 30 min of eating thing is confusing so figure I’ll just do it at night ! LOL

thats basically what I was doing with my pre op diet and it seemed to work

I had scrambled eggs 10 Days out only a half a teaspoon lol

Surgery date 12/17. Day 3 - serious headache!! Hurt worse than my belly. On that day I was able to get more fluids down and more Protein, helped tremendously. Headache much better the next day too and then gone. It kinda felt like a caffeine withdrawal headache.

I was allowed Decaf coffee and Tea

I went in for my two weeks post op today and have lost 15lbs since surgery Dec 12th. Moving onto purées and I’m also hitting the road today (traveling musician). I have Soups I plan to purée, and some canned chicken to do the same. Low fat mayo, hot sauce etc. I also made a small batch of egg salad that I can keep cool in the cooler. I have these little 2oz plastic cups with lids that I plan to fill ahead of meals so I know what my portion should be. I guess it should be one or two of these right? On purées is 2-4 ounces per meal what you guys are doing? How many times a day for y’all?

Out of curiosity does anyone have follow ups w dieticians post op? I had one class before and 2 after that are mandatory and it sounds like mine is one of the more strict ones. An example is I’m not allowed to have scrambled eggs until one month post op! I’m 16 days post op and really want some.

I have just tried puréed egg salad but it’s definitely allowed on the puréed stage as far as my docs guidelines.

1 boiled egg was added to my food list after 2 weeks post op. I can have one with 1 tbsp. of a condiment like lowfat mayo, mustard, ketchup, etc mixed in it. nut said egg is too dry in tummy so add something to it.

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
