You're actually a year and a couple of weeks. :) Congrats!

Thanks!

Wasn't my surgery on 12/26/19 just a couple of weeks after OP's surgery date of 12/10/2019?

Or did I reply to the wrong post?

That sounds miserable. Like is that sustainable for you in the long term? Where is the animal Protein?

I’m trying to cut out my meat, and get Protein with plants. Muscle milk, and bulletproof are animal based protein, I’m using what I have left over. The plant based diet sits so much easier on my tummy. Eating meat is miserable to me now, it’s so heavy. Protein comes in many forms plant based, quinoa, chia seed, Flax seed, nuts, Peanut Butter, Beans, legumes, nutritional yeast. (Animals eat plants, that’s where they get there protein from). I’m just cutting out the middle man...(animal).

You are just early days hon. You are still healing. Of course meat sits heavy in your tummy. Eat things like foil wrapped fish, or tuna/chicken salad right now. Things that are wet and light.

I’m pretty happy with cutting the meat out, now vegan balls, boca crumbles, and tofu are also In my diet...there is plenty of plant based Protein to go around. I had been working towards a plant based diet for awhile. The surgery just helped push me along a lil quicker. The hubby is doing it with me as well. He is borderline full blown diabetic, has high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. He said if all is numbers improve, he will gladly stay away from meat. So far both our energy is up, and we just “feel” good.

Sadly, most vegetarians I know are quite obese. It's a noble concept, but not really that healthy compared to a balanced diet. I'm staying away from anything with a face

Some vegetarians do eat a lot of processed foods, which sadly can make for obese vegetarians. I didn’t get to this thread because I made the best of decisions but am definitely taking this second chance at life to make better choices.

      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.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
