I didn't eat any fruit at that point after surgery. I had no room after I ate my Protein.

I put some watermelon in my blender & drank it. It was delicious, but man, oh man! About a half hour later it EXPLODED out my butt! YIKES!

2.5 months post surgery anybody eat watermelon?

Came on here to ask the exact same question. I dieted hard core about 6 years ago and lost over 80 pounds and during this time I ate a lot of watermelon. Helped keep my bowels moving (sorry, tmi) and the scale moved down every day. I am a month and a half out and I can't use the bathroom at all, and have tried everything. I'm thinking to try and eat watermelon and wanted some input from anyone who has experienced positive results from eating watermelon.

*Bursts In* Am I Late? No, cool 😂

I've noticed that whenever I ate a lot of watermelon, as opposed to other fruit, I lost more weight. Maybe its all the Water and Fiber for relatively low calories or that it also kept me very regular (also TMI)

I didn't start eating it until maybe 6 months post op. Ask your Team about it.

I'm onto you now NancyLF and fellow July surgery sibling!!! You've been giving yourself watermelon enemas with a different 'entry point'!! LOL, all in good fun I hope you know. I know you have worked hard and had awesome weight loss results but as soon as I read what you posted...I grinned and thought 'aha, there is her secret'! ;)

I love having ppl I can joke/tease with ;)

I'm actually grateful to OP for bringing this up. I ADORE watermelon but with a hissy-fit throwing pouch..there just is no way I'm going near it unless I'm SO constipated and in pain..that I decide that an 'explosion' would be an acceptable exchange..LOL

This is just one of the many things I like about reading what you post...love your sense of humor!

You also have now somewhat countered Nancy's back end explosion although you did put 6 month caveat in there which seems reasonable to me. There are so many things we have to learn out of trial and error and if there are things in the 'probably don't try until after 6 months'...I'm planning to do just that... WAIT 6 months.

Ah man, no watermelon on the cruise ship...oh Lord, I would hate to have an experience like Nancy's on a cruise ship. There will be other fruit that would be safer to try at that point if I haven't already.

Am trying to figure out what fruit might be easiest with a picky pouch to try in the pureed week...strawberries? bananas? pears? peaches? I guess sometimes we just have to try?

❤Thanks ❤

I waited so long because my Team didnt have it on my approved list so I never considered it and I had my original surgery in November so no good melon readily available

I had peaches and strawberries earlier but I'll tell you i usually didn't lose much or s3my when i had fruit often, except watermelon

I had watermelon around 6 weeks with no problem and it was delicious. Only about 2 chunks if I remember correctly

Nice, did it affect your weight loss at all? Did it help? Did it make you have a stall? My body did really well with watermelon pre surgery, but reading everyone's opinions on it on here makes me worried and has me thinking I shouldn't have it. I am exactly 6 weeks out. I feel like it wouldn't hurt to try?

I'm still post-op and just given go ahead to pureed stage and after an issue I had last night, I will probably wait days before I add any fruit in which will have to be pureed of course.

I did check out of curiosity what fruits are specifically named for this stage (by my dr's office) and it lists the following (I realize you are 6 wks out though). The foods listed on the pureed/soft foods are the same, I guess during our pureed stage we are just simply to do that..puree the food:

Skinless Fruit (¼ cup): apple, plums, apricot, peach, banana, grapes, kiwi, strawberries,blueberries, raspberries, papaya, mango

I just realized that I don't have a specific number of weeks to do puree vs soft foods - the heading just says Weeks 4-6. How did I not notice that sooner. It makes sense to me now...

It didn't affect anything for me and at the time it was in season. My Bariatric team didn't agree with the Keto and wanted us to have veggies and fruits in our diets, they said keto would mess with our metabolism later on when we did eat those things later. Everyone has different views I chose to go with the Drs. and nutritionist for my plan.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
