Check your purée diet, I didn’t ever actually purée anything. I was also told no baby foods

I never pureed anything and was fine through liquid and soft-foods stages. I stuck with things like Soup, cottage cheese, sugar-free pudding, sugar-free popsicles, scrambled eggs, and Protein Shakes. I remember seeing "baby food" on the list of acceptable foods during the soft foods stage but it stipulated to watch the sugar content and make sure it was mushy.

I never pureed anything during the pureed stage. I ate cottage cheese, greek yogurt or skyr, lightly cooked scrambled eggs (overcooked eggs were hard for me to eat), creamed Soups and applesauce. I think I might have had some refried Beans, too. This is in addition to all of the full liquids, like: Protein Shakes, puddings, etc.

To make it easier to get Protein in, I added a little Protein Powder to my yogurt/skyr and creamed soups. I still add a little protein powder to my morning skyr for Breakfast.

You can totally get through the pureed stage without having to puree anything and without having to resort to baby food. BTW: I think I recall someone mentioned to me that I could do the baby food meats, but they were so gross that I decided that I could live a week or 2 without something that reminded me of cat food.

Yeah. What they said! :) I skipped over puree to soft foods per my doc. Lots of poached fish, canned fish/chicken, and soft boiled eggs/soft scrambled eggs, Grk yogurt, cottage cheese, blended Soups, mashed cauliflower, etc.

I never asked my nutritionist.....I just assumed that if it was good enough for a baby, it was good enough for me....the portion size was perfect. But I would watch the sugar👍

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
