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

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.

        I love it! Thanks!
