First Meal After Liquid Stage



Recommended Posts

I’m 2 weeks into the 3 week liquid stage and I’ve never been more excited to chew something! I’m googling food ideas and drooling over the pictures like they’re some kind of illicit porn.

What was your first chewable meal post-surgery? I’m fantasizing about a soft boiled egg and cottage cheese. I’m planning on setting out the good china and making a production of it. I guess that’s all part of the process; not just inhaling food but savoring it. I’m so excited!! 😃

Congrats!!! You are gonna SOOOO enjoy that first meal! Take tiny bites and go slowly!

Soft scrambled egg with cottage cheese and cheddar and taco bell mild sauce (should have omitted the cheese until I was regular) cuz it caused all kinds of mischief being backed up. :) Emphasis on soft scrambled...

But the soft boiled eggs with a tiny bit of butter went down very easily too.

Thanks all! Just bought a cookbook from Amazon by Sarah Kent. I prefer the hard copy so I’ll be devouring that once it comes. Prior to this surgery I’d cram any food into my mouth regardless of whether I really liked it. I need to work on switching to high quality, nutritious food; quality over quantity. Very excited!

My typical day is two Protein Drinks to get my 60 g. of Protein and a small single serving of 4oz of cottage cheese. I've done that for about a week. Will try to replace cottage cheese with one scrambled egg. I am very cautious about upsetting my stomach. I'm not in a hurry to eat a lot or often.

I'm totally feeling your post! I'm taking it nice & slow. My surgeon and nutritionist also tell me "Take your time and take advantage of the honey moon first year stage". No rush to dive into eating a variety of food. SO EXCITED!

Jen, keep me up to date with your favorite recipes out of the cookbook. I plan on getting the hard copy, too.

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.

      I just read @BoredCW's status post and also want to lament the loss of my butt.  Looking at me the side, my back is basically flat from my neck to my knees.  My jeans have lovely fabric folds draping from my backside from lack of filling.
      Two days ago, I was sitting on a worn couch at the gym and I could feel the springs and count how many I was sitting on.  Told the Kid and she said she wants to find her childhood alphabet fridge magnets in the basement to spell out words and have me sit on them and do some "butt-braille-reading" 😂

        HI-LAR-ious! I love your kid!!!

        Yeah, we all suffer from noassatall syndrome. :(

        Yes. I think the spandex in jeans is the only thing that helps keep the sag below the pockets form looking ridiculous. Even leggings wrinkle there.

        Ah, our disappearing collective butts.

        I am seriously considering changing my plastics plan. I am booked for an arm lift in December, but my summer obsession with arm exercises has improved the look of them quite a bit to the point that I think I may hate my butt more than my arms. Should I do a butt lift instead?!?! In conjunction with?!?!?

        I am trying to cultivate an obsession with butt exercises but its not working so far...

      4. 2Bsmaller18

        I don't think you could do both at the same time. For me personally it's arms. I have granny wrinkles down to my elbows. I can always dover my body with tshirts, pants, etc but unless I wear long sleeves my arms are an issue. I also can't wear a small enough jacket since it fits everywhere but too tight in the arms. They measure around 13.5 inches. Can you compromise and get the smaller arm lift. I don't know if that saves much $ or recovery but if your arms improved that much maybe just a tweek will work?

      On the 3 week plateau from hell.. It seems like an endless desert with sand dunes that represent the 1-2 pounds gain then dropped from day to day. Met with my weight loss group tonight and was told its normal. That this is sometimes like a step, plateau then drop, plateau then drop. Only for the plateau's to go on longer the farther away from the surgery date I get. Much like EDM, I can't wait for the drop. 
      On top of it all, I lost my ass. Seriously.. its gone. All that cushion that I enjoyed lounging on eating what ever I ate, watching what ever was on the computer or tv... is gone. That glorious support system is vamoosed. I know this because my ass (tailbone) hurts all the time. I'm sitting on bone now and its sore. I am my own literal Pain in the Ass! (My family would say whats new, but who cares about them.. my butt hurts.) I have yet to bring a pillow with me everywhere I go to sit on, but I'm getting ready to as I sit for my job working on computers. So far losing the weight is a Pain. I hope it gets better.

        Hang in there, the plateau will end eventually. Also I feel you on the butt thing.

        I have a butt pillow. I'm not proud. :D

        The plateaus suck!!!! Keep the faith and motor on!

      In a bit of a stall right now.   267-269 lbs the past week.   Almost wrote that as "367-369".   
      Still 158 lbs. lighter than my heaviest.
