Hey guys/ladies :) I'm Em, from Cornwall, UK.

i had my gastric sleeve surgery on November 12th. Wish I'd found this site weeks ago! Anyhoo, I'm on stage 2 of food plan so mashed up veg etc, egg, even got some well chewed sushi down yesterday with no Ill effects.

The only issue I'm having seems to be garlic makes me nauseous, sucks as I love it! Garlic that is not the sickness :(

lost 2 stone since start of pre-op milk and jelly LRD so quite happy and feeling the benefits already!

1st few days were horrific due to the wind pain causing sickness and could only get Water down me. But cleared up quickly to get some Soup in.

one thing that really has helped me is the myFitnessPal to track how many calories I'm getting in, nutrition and mapMyWalk.

However I'm worried I'm only getting 500-600 calories in and simply can't eat any more yet. Is this ok?

I'm sure it'll go up and I'm eating Soups I've made packed full of veg and Protein, so just seeing if is ok at this stage?

how are you guys all doing?

YES! I didn't expect to feel the cold so much after the surgery. I know I've lost a lot of weight, but who would have expected that I'd freeze to death in California? Last winter I never wore shoes, just sandals the whole year through. This winter wont be the same.

I'm like constantly making hot Water bottles 🥶I hope we warm up again!
At least you are in California and the chances are it's warmer. Cornwall this time of year is just wind and rain......oh wait....and the rest of the year lol
But seriously, who woulda think it?
When was your op? Do we warm up again [emoji23]? Mine was only on 12th Nov so I'm hoping it's just an initial thing 🤞

      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
