Hi everyone! I'm 11 days post op and doing well. I've had an easy recovery.

I just bought a 2 pound container of the Syntrax Nectar Sweets chocolate Truffle and it didn't come with a scoop! Could someone who uses this please tell me how much powder I need to add to 8 ounces of milk? How many tablespoons is your scoop. Thank you!

The scoop always gets hidden under the Protein. I didn’t like Syntrax. My favorite protein is PEScience. I mix my Protein Powder with unsweetened Ripple milk. It’s pea protein and is 1 gram of protein per ounce. I never understood the skim milk recommendation since it’s a lot of sugar vs ripple milk that is zero.

1g Protein? Should be at least 20g up to 30g per oz serve.

I have a few options I've bought from 22g to 29g protein per serve

The one gram per ounce is the Ripple milk that I mix with Protein powder. The PEScience protein powder is 24 grams protein per serving. With 6 oz of Ripple milk it’s a total of 30 grams protein. I use it because it has zero sugar compared to skim milk. And 30 grams protein is optimal for a Meal Replacement.

I have never heard of Ripple Milk. What is it? Where is it available?

If you look at the nutritional facts, the serving size is listed first, and should say “one scoop” or “2 scoops” but it also next to it says how many grams or oz in a scoop. Since you are 11 days post op, I would try about 1/4 cup of Water mixed with a few tablespoons of the powder and take small sips. 11 days out my stomach was NOT ready for dairy, even the fair life milk (low sugar)

Ripple milk is a plant based milk it has much more Protein than nut milks, it’s pea protein. The unsweetened has zero sugar. I buy it in Target, my grocery also sells it but target is less $ Whole Foods also has it if I need it delivered.

They are also an environmentally conscious company. It takes much less Water to produce the milk. Plus after trying many types of milk I like it best.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
