I need to get Jello yet, but I'd add beef and chicken broth. I bought Decaf coffee, herbal tea and crystal light. I also picked up some small containers, a new lunchbox for going back to work, and several shot-glass sized measuring cups.

Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

My list is: sugar-free pudding and sugar free Jello, Protein20 flavored waters, Gatorade zero, cream Soups, chicken broth, sugar free popsicles, unflavored Protein Powder (to mix in pudding, jello, soups...etc), Two Good greek yogurts, Ricotta cheese, 2oz disposable containers (so I can prep stuff before surgery and throw in the fridge), small fork/spoon set, Flinstones chewables, calcium citrate chewables, herbal teas. That should get me through my two weeks of "full liquids" (yes, yogurt and ricotta is on my "full liquids" list) and beyond...

I also bought a new blender to can puree the heck out of anything and everything. ;) I still have to figure out how to pack food for work, but I took two weeks off and I'm working two weeks remote after that so I have some time to decide what to do.

I used to teach so I had Protein Drinks in the frig to drink during the day, as it took so long to drink them, and Campbells Soup in the Hand for lunches. Single serving small Soups.

My scheduled date is June 17th. I’m excited, nervous & scared all at once. My primary doctor is SO happy! He’s been urging me to have it done for a couple of years. I was too afraid. 😄

Hi all,
I am new to this and have my sleeve surgery scheduled for June 7th. I am on my two week pre surgery diet and struggling so thought I would come online for support and motivation.

Good luck on your journey. I'm waiting for my last appt then I will find out my surgery date, hopefully soon! The only thing I can suggest is to make your house a clean house, without temptations. I am currently taste testing Protein drinks as I did them a lot. I will also taste different Soups. Drink lots as it keeps you from getting hungry, warm drinks like tea help too. Just keep in mind how great you will look and feel. Make a list of all the things you want to do when you become healthier. I want to go to Washington DC and see some museums. Walking a lot is painful now for me. Just keep your eye on the prize!

Hi

Work just approved my June 17th week off for vsg. I'm hoping I can work the following week, I don't quality for fmla yet. I'm rushing to get everything done but have been thinking about the surgery for 2 years now. I'm finally decided to do this in the winter. I have a pre op to do, plus maybe ekg. Plus read up on what to stock up on etc. Lots to learn, excited/nervous but ready.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
