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!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      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.
