What was your first solid/soft food you tried, when you started stage 3?

I had my two week follow up (3days early because Monday they’re closed and that’s when it would be exactly 2 weeks) and I have a lost 19lbs. I was told I can start stage 3 today but I’m starting tomorrow.

Also what are some tips you can give me? I know one thing at a time as well as a little at a time like 2oz.

tuna, cottage cheese, i tried a bit of stir fry chick, first time just eating the veggies and bit of noodle was fine, next time i ate a tiny bit of the chicken and threw it up. Don’t recommend chicken but stir fry veggies cooked soft was yummy.

Refried Beans, yoghurt, cottage cheese. Go really slow with the meats - like 1 ounce at a time. I tried cod - liked it, but ate a little too much and got sick. Cannot eat it now at all. Same with some other foods that just didn't go down well.

Believe it or not, the easiest meat to eat was calf liver. So smooth and soft - a real slider, and milder tasting than beef liver. Sprouts has it in the frozen meat freezer, in 4 ounce pre packaged, sealed portions. I break off half of that - so a 2 ounce portion. I coat it with just a dusting of gluten free flour and then pan sautee with some onions in a little olive oil until just tender.

Soft scrambled eggs with cottage cheese and cheddar with taco bell mild sauce. In retrospect I should have held off on the cheese cuz it caused me terrible issues afterward. :(

Woo hoo! A new milestone! My first soft foods day was Thursday. I had about 2oz of lowfat cottage cheese and it was divine lol. So weird that it felt like "enough" -- bc I love cottage cheese and used to just eat a big bowl of it. It's very exciting to realize that after just a few bites, I actually feel not just satiated, but not "yearning" for more, if that makes sense? It's a totally new feeling for me.

I'd recommend you set a timer 30 minutes after your last Fluid before you eat, then after eating set a timer for another 30 minutes before you have liquids again. Rinse and repeat.

Best of luck!!! :)

Hey Surgery date twin! I was allowed to start stage 3 as soon as I came home on Wed. I ended up waiting until thurs or Fri and I had mashed potatoes. Since then I have had oatmeal, refried Beans scrambled egg, black bean Soup take it nice and slow.

oh wow that is awesome! As hard as it is because I love to shop I have not bought anything lol I haven't even tried on my jeans I been living out of my leggings and workout pants but I'm a little afraid to try my jeans on because of were they sit will be on one of my incisions.

that is awesome how you were aloud to start solid/soft foods right out of the hospital. my surgeon had me on stage 1 Clear Liquids in hospital and started stage 2 liquids until my follow up and now on stage 3.

So far I've had an equal amount of egg whites to a full egg with a tiny bit of sugar free bbq which was enough for me, lunch I had 2 oz of homemade split pea Soup and for dinner I've had 2oz of cottage cheese on reduced fat ritz crackers. so far all has set well :)

I no longer had any jean shorts I could wear and a busy season for my daughters gymnastics season starts next week. I quit wearing leggings months ago as I was tired of trying to find shirts to cover my butt and stuff, so it was either find new tunics which really would be a waste of money for me IMO or a pair of shorts. So exciting getting them since I normally had a 22 or 24 depending on the brand and I bought a pair of 20's. My baby girl was giving me high 5's lol. I also cleaned out all my clothes that I haven't worn in over 3 months. I figured I hadn't worn them in that long and it would be long before they were too big so I'm making space now. What started it all? I couldn't see any loss at all visually, so I tried on a pair of pants that I were too small when they came in the mail. Now they fit WOOT!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
