Week 4...going to soft food & nervous!



Recommended Posts

Just take your time with the transition and do not move onto soft food if you do not feel ready. It took me quite awhile to transition over. Make sure all the food soft and not dry.

Yogurt was definitely one of the easiest things for me! I had a tough time with scrambled eggs (still do at 8 weeks out). I love pea Soup so that was pretty easy (no chunks)! Good luck and like Oct517 said, take it slow!

eggs were pretty easy for me. One of my go to is ricotta bake (just google eggface ricotta bake). Really good. I add some sauteed and pureed spinach. I also really do well with tilapia - just need to find more ways to cook it!

I keep the individually packaged frozen tilapia fillets in the freezer. I like to poach them in a little simmering Water with lemon slices and some pepper. Comes out very soft and tasty and quick, too!

My go-to on the soft food phase (and still) is oatmeal.

I do too. Although each fillet is 6oz and all I can eat is 2, so that’s a bit inconvenient. I’ve tried to chop them frozen with a cleaver, but that makes a mess. :). So quick to cook. Made a great tilapia the other day. Bariatric Foodie’s tilapia with fire roasted Tomato sauce (minus the asparagus) - so good!!!

Fortunately, I give my left-over tilapia to hubby who makes a fish taco out of it.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      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.
