I used to live to mix the banana and caramel together and after surgery I suddenly couldn't stomach them. I'm not lactose intolerant. My pouch just didn't like it. I'm now drinking clear Premier Protein shakes. I don't love them but I don't hate them and I can tolerate them. Also you can freeze them into popsicles [emoji4]

in the literature they give you after surgery they talk about drinking 4 ounce of Protein Shake made up of powder or.. or already in a bottle is that how much at one time you are supposed to have? i have been trying to sip all 11 Fluid ounces within 30 minutes..and yes they all taste like crap after the surgery,,,

Right after surgery they want you to drink 4 ounces in 1 hour. Space it out. 11 ounces in 30 min is a lot in my opinion.

Drink what you can. Some people have issues drinking. I had no pain immediately after surgery. I was also very well medicated so that might be why. I couldn’t stand the Protein Shakes. The first couple were good just because I was so hungry but a week in I was going nuts and when I finally got to soft food I’m drinking as few as possible because I can’t stand them either. Think of it as “taking your medicine”. Lol. I agree on the clear. They’re much less thick and sickening. Water down and put on ice👍🏼

Thank you for the kind words. I thought people were going to crucify me for being so close to surgery. I am doing this and I am not going to cheat again. Surgery is 10 days away. Wow

Think of it this way, the liquid diet is shrinking your liver, making more room for them to do the surgery, its helping your body prepare for your journey. Dont self sabatoge. You CAN do this. Good luck!

I like Unjury or Syntrax Nectar powders mixed with unsweetened almond milk. I tried powder mixed with Water and it was vile!!

This is what I’m current doing! Although I feel like I’m dying, this was the only Protein I could tolerate . The vanilla flavor and unsweetened almond milk has been pleasant

      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.
