On my first meeting with my dietitian she told me that after surgery sodas are not permitted, because of the empty calories and sugar even, seltzer Water and the no calorie beverage should be off limit. They cause gas, bloating and risk of acid reflux.

Nope, you're going to have to get used to Water, iced tea, and other non-calorie liquids

I don't normally drink soda. I really just like Water milk. I every once in a while will drink a Powerade zero or a diet soda. Maybe twice a month I have one or the other. I'm just worried that decayed I can't eat I'm going to get tired of the milk and water which is kind of how I'm feeling. I don't want it every day even. I just thought I could have one to change it up but it doesn't matter now. I bought vita water and I'm satisfied.

Use this time to think about how you want to eat for the rest of your life. In my opinion, every bite and sip after surgery and for the rest of your life should be as nutritious and healthy as possible. Artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavorings don't meet the healthy criteria. Water and herbal teas are great. There is a lot of research that shows artificial sweeteners to be very detrimental to weight loss. They confuse the body/brain - lots of sweet but no calories? Let's just lay down some fat reserves just in case. The stuff is toxic - a chemical cocktail. If your goal is long term healthy living, just give it up now and be done with it. Just my opinion, and I wish you the very best surgery!!!

      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.
