On the eve eve of starting my liquid diet, I'm trying to get in those foods that I love. I'm having sushi, miso Soup, and a crab rangoon for lunch (Lunch special). Don't know what for dinner and daytime tomorrow, but tomorrow night my sister is cooking me a feast! Lemon chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, and my fav, green bean casserole (she's a doll). What other foods do you think I should try to get in (before people get testy, I'm still eating smaller portions because I've completely changed my diet)? Anything you were sad you didn't get a last taste of?

I did the same it took 4 days. I had southern BLT, shrimp, and grits with collards, a local side salad, and a pastrami sandwich. I gained 2 pounds savored each bite and don't regret a thing. I'm now 3 days from surgery and down 10 pounds so 2 of those were wonderful.

I made sure I had most of my favorites before my first doc appointment. I think a ‘food funeral’ is good. Some foods we can have again, but most we should try and cut out, mainly sugar. I want to go into the surgery as healthy as I can, so I’ve started now. I lost 13 lbs and cut out sugar and it’s insanely hard 😭. Today is day 7 of that. My friend who had it and had the best recovery worked out a lot and that’s been my main focus. I may slip in these months leading up to the surgery, but I’m trying. I’m so happy for us all, I know we’ll all be so much healthier in the coming months/years. Good luck with your surgery! ☺️

I had a food funeral too :) I tried to focus more on meat since I hear its hardest to digest after surgery. I had Korean BBQ, Ramen, steak from Longhorn, cow tongue tacos (I know, weird lol), and a few other things. My family also cooked some of my favorite dishes a week before.

It has cream of mushroom Soup and fried onions in it. It’s just kinda carb heavy.

I made this as a microwave version when I was on mushies. I used the low fat Soup and canned chicken. It was really delish and satisfying. And perfectly on plan. I put it up in small 1/4c portions and froze it. Then i'd take one out per meal and nuke it for like 1 minute 20 seconds and had a meal of which I ate maybe 1/2 of it. The bariatric version isn't carb heavy at all.

Here's my recipe for it, but now I just omit the COC soup and use COM.

Thanks for the recipe! I'll have to try it when I'm on the mushy phase.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
