Woohooo :D

So, hit me with your 1st 'meal' foods. The nurse suggested an egg or some potato and gravy.

I personally had huge issue with egg which is what my dr told me to try first. Posted here and found out it was not uncommon for eggs to be an issue for some. It may work well for you, but I've tried scrambled egg again since that one very painful day and had repeat of same experience.

Unsure why it impacts some folks this way. I've tried refried Beans, pieces of sliced avocado with a little garlic. The avocado was the first thing I tried after my bad experience with the egg. Then I tried some refried beans (2 ozs)

eggs did not work for me at all. Refried Beans (maybe thinned with broth) were wonderful. Cottage cheese, Greek yoghurt - also wonderful. Pea Soup, lentil soup (maybe in blender if needed). Try to stick with Protein foods. Potatoes would not be a good choice, IMHO.

Morning :D Thanks for your replies!

I had 1 scrambled egg with 1 dessertspoon of tinned tomatoes and mushed it all up well. It was amazingly scrumdiddlyumptious lol. I had no pain or nausea from it.

I did exactly what the nurse said, a mouthful was the size of a 20 pence piece, I chewed 20 times, swallowed, then waited 1 min until the next mouthful.

So 1 egg took approx 30 mins to eat and was cold by the end, but my tastebuds were singing with joy haha :lol:

I am trying potato now for lunch and eating it exactly the same way as the egg, tiny amount, 'chewed' (a bit hard as I blended it with chicken salt and Water so is like baby food consistency) and then waiting 1 minute until the next 'mouthful'.

Seeing as potato is so starchy it may well trigger a 'dumping', but I have been dreaming of potato with mince and gravy for a month lol So I have fingers, toes, eyes, legs and arms crossed it doesn't make me dump, (i wish we had another easy word for dumping syndrome).

I am going to go and get some ricotta later so I can make that ricotta bake that looks delicious.

Because I initially had a sleeve done they had told me no puree food for another 2 weeks yet, so when I had my Bari Nurse check-up last night she remembered that I could start puree foods now seeing as I ended up with an emergency bypass! :D So the things I had planned on buying to try pureed I don't have in yet, so good excuse to have a little walk to the shop and get a few bits :)

Oh no! I know they say our tastes really change but for it all to taste disgusting isn't good.

Just a thought have you got oral thrush maybe? Because that can drastically alter taste.

Congrats on graduating!!!! I had a soft scrambled egg with cottage cheese in it and some cheddar. The cheese caused me issues, but stirring in a spoon of greek yogurt or sour cream and cooking until creamy would have worked better! The egg went down great though!

My first foods were egg salad and beanless chili.

Yep, blows me away how we are all told such different things!

Even in the sample menu they gave me potato is in one of the meals! [emoji15]

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊

      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?

      5. ms.sss

        The difference in price for a mini arm lift and the full arm lift at my surgeon is less thank 2K and probably not worth the savings. May as well pay the extra bit and get the full arm lift as my sag also reaches my elbows. You are right though, my arms see the light of day way more than my butt does...I'll have to see if the continued butt exercises will change my mind down the road (but it's looking more and more that a butt lift is in my future)

        P.S. At the beginning of my 2 week pre-op diet, my upper right arm measured 17.75 inches in circumference. Now its 10. And that is with the extra skin still.

      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.

      2. FluffyChix

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

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