D Day is here. I am 6 weeks out and clear to eat whatever I want. I thought about good, homemade chilli but I have noticed anything spicy, ie pepper, or peppers, gives me heartburn now. I had considered sushi, but I have a feeling the wasabi may do the same thing.




For now, its a large cup of hot, black, fully caffeinated coffee


I am finishing up my fourth week post-op. I have been cheating just a little, eating chicken noodle Soup or vegetable beef soup for about a week. Last night I made sloppy joes for the kids for dinner and I was able to eat about 1/2 cup of the meat without a bun with no issues and it was awesome.

Maybe you could try some mild Indian food?

I tried Ensure Max cafe mocha while taste testing Protein Drinks. This is really good and has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee so you can kill two birds, Protein and coffee. I'm not sure about I'm not sure I'd do chili the Beans and spices may be an issue. Share what kind of chili you were able to eat.

How hard is the pre liquid diet?
It isn't hard. I had food every other day, just once. I lost 22 lbs on surgery day. Make sure you don't eat at least 2 days before surgery, and make sure it isn't pizza or some really heavy food. The weekend before was my final goodbye to pizza. Just use your head. Eat scrambled eggs and bacon or chicken and veggies. Light stuff. But definitely nothing at least 2 days before surgery.

I made the white chicken chili with just chili powder and cayenne. Just half the amount required though.

Regrows Beans and some cheese or White Bean Chili with chicken ground
I also had that as my first soft food after getting the OK. I pureed it through my ninja.

I can't remember the first thing when I was cleared for any food. When I was cleared for pureed though I dragged my husband to the nearest Indian food restaurant. (My surgeon is very conservative with diet progression and I was on full liquids for 6 weeks) I was ready for something savory and spicy!

I looooove Indian food. What did you have that was puréed? I want to mentally prepare for a glorious meal! I’m 6 days out from surgery now.

I think I had Chana Saag. Paneer Saag is one of my favorite dishes but I could mush the chickpeas easier than paneer. Took Protein Powder with me to add to it.

Reading some of the tasty things you all have eaten makes me feel like I am in the midst of a food Desert in Central Ohio. We dont seem to have any of those Good Things!

Yesterday marked 1 month (4 weeks and 4 days) post-op. I had a very small piece of tri-tip (similar to brisket, but better IMO) and it was absolutely glorious.

It is harder mentally than physically! I am on day 3 and wanting to eat today more than the previous two days. You know your stomach can still handle large volumes of food, so your brain isn't satisfied after one shake!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
