What is it DeeDee? how long after surgery could you have that? Did you tolerate it ok !

4oz refried Beans with cheese and 1 oz peach. Served by bariatric team during post OP class.
I was extremely nervous!!
I ate the beans over 2 hrs. 1/3 at a time. I had a bariatric forkful of the peaches and stopped.

I’m getting better each day. On this morning I feel a little stuffy my throat. I hope I’m not catching a cold.

4 days post OP and had my post OP class today with lunch included afterwards. I'd been on Clear Liquids since day before surgery.
I tell you, refried Beans has never tasted heavenly!!! I'll share a picture and it took me an hour to finish the Beans. I couldn't finish the fruit!

I commend you guys with weeks long preop!!! Well done!!emoji122.pngemoji122.pngemoji122.png Success will be yours soon. Can't wait to welcome you to the other side soon!🧡🧡🧡

4 days post-op and you're already eating refried beans?? Lucky.

I'm 9 days post-op and the most solid thing I've eaten is greek yogurt. My program said I can start adding soft solids (scrambled eggs, refried beans, some pureed stuff, thoroughly chewed soft chicken) on day 12 or 13, but I'm going to start tomorrow. The past 2 days I've only consumed like 350 calories because I'm so tired of yogurt!

Tomorrow is the day!!! I kind of can't believe I have survived these two weeks on liquids...I'll be honest, I'm kind of sick of Protein Shakes and broth! It will be a relief to get to day 3 post-op and be able to have *full* liquids!




I had my bloodwork done Friday, and one of my tests indicated some clotting issues, so I had to start lovenox injections on Sunday. Luckily, not too bad :)


Best of luck to you!! I had my surgery Monday & honestly I don’t care what I’m sipping... Water premier... it’s just what I have to do & id be fine with nothing. I have no appetite. However I’ve set my alarm for every 10 minutes & I just look at is as part of my recovery. I’m doing Enoxaparin shots in my stomach 2x a day to prevent clots. Keep us posted on your progress. Next time you contact us you’ll be on the losers bench!!! Yay!!!!!

Congrats!!You must be thrilled since there’s a substantial difference!!! Wonderful!!! I had the sleeve ... had wanted RNY but surgeon made an executive decision when he had me on the table to do the sleeve because of scar tissue. Glad to see that the sleeve is working out so well for you! Ps.... how do we post pics? I’m still learning this app!!

No not baked beans. It's a slow cooked beans that is then mashed and then reheated Name is misleading as it's not "refried" like with oil or anything. It's a very Tex-Mex cuisine and not close to traditional baked beans with sugar added.
This was fat free/vegan and no sugar added.

I had microwaved eggs yesterday and it didn't go down well for me so I'm staying away for now. Let me know how scrambled work for you.

Good luck 🧡🧡🧡

😊 Scrambled eggs was fine. I could only eat just over half so it was 1/2 an egg . What did it do to you ? I had Tomato Soup the other day and really suffered for it. It was stupid . Because my son could have it after his surgery, I thought it would be ok . Bad idea ! I’ll stick to what my paperwork says in future !

      Down 31 pounds in my first month! OK, so a month and two days, but I'm counting it anyway. 😆
      At this point, I'm doing well overall. According to surgeons' instructions, I'm on soft foods for another week-ish. I'm so ready for solids - the soft foods can be such "sliders" and I have to be extra, extra careful.
      For example, my refried beans + dollop of plain Greek yogurt + tomatillo salsa verde became a problem. I never felt satisfied and felt I could have easily had a much bigger serving. Then, far worse was when I made homemade hummus - holy cow it is SO GOOD, but again - felt like I could have downed a quart, no problem. 😂
      It's (for me at least) extremely challenging to "eat mindfully" when the food is that soft. I mean for crying out loud, there's nothing to "chew on"! 😂
      So, couple of days ago - I committed to no more refried beans and no more hummus. Farewell my delicious friends. Going to focus on chicken and tuna and eggs for the time being (ground up til mushy, of course). 
      I'm hoping that once I get the go-ahead to introduce solids I will be able to feel the restriction. Because honestly? I'm only a month in, and I feel NO restriction. It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. Willpower was never my problem. But I'm so looking forward to that feeling I hear a lot on here when people say "Oh I ate half an egg and was SO STUFFED." This has....not been my experience. 😕
      Really hoping that's because my foods are so mushy/soft right now. We shall see. 
      Regardless, I'm 100 percent committed. I hear over and over how this tool is the most powerful for about a year, maybe/possibly a wee bit more. I will not sabotage that for the world. 
      So - doing my happy dance at 31 pounds down - I'm in a "weight decade" I haven't seen in a very long time. And it only gets better from here!

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.

      I just read @BoredCW's status post and also want to lament the loss of my butt.  Looking at me the side, my back is basically flat from my neck to my knees.  My jeans have lovely fabric folds draping from my backside from lack of filling.
      Two days ago, I was sitting on a worn couch at the gym and I could feel the springs and count how many I was sitting on.  Told the Kid and she said she wants to find her childhood alphabet fridge magnets in the basement to spell out words and have me sit on them and do some "butt-braille-reading" 😂

        HI-LAR-ious! I love your kid!!!

        Yeah, we all suffer from noassatall syndrome. :(

        Yes. I think the spandex in jeans is the only thing that helps keep the sag below the pockets form looking ridiculous. Even leggings wrinkle there.

      3. ms.sss

        Ah, our disappearing collective butts.

        I am seriously considering changing my plastics plan. I am booked for an arm lift in December, but my summer obsession with arm exercises has improved the look of them quite a bit to the point that I think I may hate my butt more than my arms. Should I do a butt lift instead?!?! In conjunction with?!?!?

        I am trying to cultivate an obsession with butt exercises but its not working so far...

      4. 2Bsmaller18

        I don't think you could do both at the same time. For me personally it's arms. I have granny wrinkles down to my elbows. I can always dover my body with tshirts, pants, etc but unless I wear long sleeves my arms are an issue. I also can't wear a small enough jacket since it fits everywhere but too tight in the arms. They measure around 13.5 inches. Can you compromise and get the smaller arm lift. I don't know if that saves much $ or recovery but if your arms improved that much maybe just a tweek will work?

      5. ms.sss

        The difference in price for a mini arm lift and the full arm lift at my surgeon is less thank 2K and probably not worth the savings. May as well pay the extra bit and get the full arm lift as my sag also reaches my elbows. You are right though, my arms see the light of day way more than my butt does...I'll have to see if the continued butt exercises will change my mind down the road (but it's looking more and more that a butt lift is in my future)

        P.S. At the beginning of my 2 week pre-op diet, my upper right arm measured 17.75 inches in circumference. Now its 10. And that is with the extra skin still.
