I was super scared about getting it done. I had a lot of anxiety about it and mainly about not knowing what to expect after. I can tell you it is definitely not as bad as I even remotely thought it was going to be. The first two days were rough but after that it’s been smooth sailing. I am able to drink regularly with no problems. I am only a week postop. The only thing I have trouble on is getting all the Protein down because it is so thick it is hard to drink even if I Water it down. I let have lost 30 pounds so far in the last two weeks. 17 were from my liquid diet preop and the remaining 13 pounds I have lost in the last week since surgery. I am having a problem with not eating foods as I’m not hungry and so far it’s all been very easy. good luck to you! Message me if there is any thing that I can help you with🙂

That is great news! My surgery is a week from today. I’ve lost 13 lbs so far and I have not cheated once. Very excited for the new me!

The vanilla has a weird taste/smell to me—I was sure I would love it since it's one of their most popular flavors. I've heard good things about the Peanut Butter cookie. I want to try the Cafe Amore once I'm cleared for caffeine. I have the Cafe Bella and don't like it very much—it says that the cinnamon is "light sprinkle", but for me it's really strong.


Yeah, I’m not a big “Bella” fan either. I like the vanilla though because I can add plain unsweetened cocoa to make chocolate or PB2 to make Peanut Butter. I’ve also been known in the past to add a tsp of sf banana or cheesecake pudding mix to flavor it, but that does add a few carbs.

I've been watching Chopped and Cutthroat Kitchen for the past week, so I don't think I'm there yet lol. When do you get to move to the next stage?


I get full liquids tomorrow. Then 10 days later I go to purées.

I was so disappointed because they said it's so popular! I tried that SF pudding mix with the vanilla, but couldn't get past the smell. I've been looking for the SF cheesecake pudding mix—I've checked at 2 or 3 places and haven't been able to find it yet!

Warning, do NOT get the Baiatric Pal version. My only,disappointment. from Bariatric Pal Store. I think I got some of the sf cheesecake from Hello at my local Krogers and they may have some in stock at Wally World. Worth a look-see.

So I'm officially 1 week post-op today and I'm hella annoyed because I'm up a couple pounds from yesterday. I'm eating next to nothing so, naturally, I'm annoyed. Rationally, I know that there are a ton of reasons that could have caused this and that in the scheme of things, this literally means nothing. However, as someone who is eating next to nothing, it's hard to make yourself listen to your rational thoughts 🙂 I'm going to do measurements today, so that in the future (when this undoubtedly happens again) I can use these in conjunction with the scale. Rant over 🙂

      Surgery is set for 10/4/21. At this point I haven't had any coffee, alcohol, carbonated drinks, or caffeine in general for over a month. Too bad it just hit pumpkin spice season! I'm missing my coffee!

      I bought a box (7 servings) of peaches and cream oatmeal (used one) and pumpkin spice pancake mix (none used).  I no longer want them.  The exp dates are 4/2023 and 10/2022, respectively.  I live in Manatee Co, FL.  Will take $10 for all.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.
