Glad to see some new June people! Welcome!

Question - does anyone else have to give up coffee for a bit? On my plan I'm not allowed to have coffee for three months post-op. 😭😭 In addition to the caffeine my nutritionist said that it is also the acidity they are concerned with. I'm now drinking half-caff in the morning to prepare for no caffeine but this is going to be tough! I like the taste of coffee and it is my morning routine! Herbal teas, which she said were ok, are just not going to cut it! LOL

You know in the pre-op education last night, the nurse did say that we could have coffee during the pre-op because to quit caffeine cold turkey would bring an onslaught of headaches. But after surgery no caffeinated coffee, tea, etc. I was not a happy camper when I found this out. But I have done some research and found a pretty DAMN good Decaf coffee. Since I have a Keurig, Peet's Coffee makes a wicked house blend decaf. And trust me I know my coffee, you won't even know the difference. So if you still want your coffee, give it a try.Decaf House Blend K-Cup® Packs

Ugh is anyone else going off the rails a little?! I've been eating foods that are so shitty for me after doing amazing on my diet for the last 6 months. I'm supposed to start my 2 week liquid diet on June 5th BUT I'm going to do a 3 or 4 week liquid or low carb diet to get back on track. I plan on starting that this coming Sunday.

Bullet,

I really wanted McDonald's last night after leaving the pre-op education class😨 But I talked myself out of it. I start my pre-op diet on Memorial Day. And guess what????? I am having a cookout the Sunday before Memorial Day. I figured it will be like my "last supper"😰 And today, I was craving chocolate chip 🍪cookies and a glass of milk. So I ended up doing some yard work and then taking my 🐶 Riley for a couple of walks. And the walking took my mind off those delicious 🍪cookies. You gotta talk yourself out of those sudden cravings. If this surgery is going to have any long term success, I will have to be strong and you will and can too. Just my two cents of encouragement.........Cause We are going to need it. Good luck and YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!

My doctor seems super liberal with coffee. I'm told sugar free syrups are okay, plain half & half is okay. I've seen comments about the caffeine being dehydrating so I'm slowly cutting back to Decaf. We'll see.

Yeah, it's been a bit tough... Some moments I'm knocking it out of the park, and others I'm diving for junk food. I'm honestly very much looking forward to the liquid diet, when my food choices will be narrowed down to flavors rather than anything more meaningful 😝

I've actually been enjoying using the sugar free syrups in my shakes - it varies up the flavors quite a bit, and they're really good!! I used to drink flavored coffee, but I think if/when I go back to drinking coffee, I'll be adding these syrups to standard coffee instead... 😊

Exactly. I have had amazing self control until the last 2 weeks or so. I'm excited to get this show on the road lol

Congrats sweetheart!!!! Soooo happy for you!!! I have gained like 5 lbs this month I think because I changed my reading habits when I found out i had diabetes and did so well they took but now that I'm off of them all ive been doing is eating. Starting my new diet goal tomorrow then doing a 4 week liquid diet to make sure I can do this

Yikes, 4 weeks?...i'm not so much worried about myself being able to do it but i'm terribly worried about my family and coworkers that will have to put up with me during the pre-op liquid diet lol.

Since my last appointment I've been at a standstill. I'm still exercising but I've been letting bread creep back in and also grabbing bites of my family's food (french fries) and had pizza. I'm trying to get out of my head the "well you won't be able to have this for a while and your pre-op nutrition appointment and last weigh in is June 7th so...no big deal". I'm annoying myself. LOL I've been so disciplined since January. I've got to get back to the mantra "progress not perfection", not beat myself up over it and get back to my low carb/high Protein diet. My surgery is the 17th and I have one more weekend of events to get through ... my son graduates high school on the 7th of June and we'll have one dinner out afterwards and a party that weekend for him. But that should be it!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
