My fav to this day and I started it in purées my 2nd week post op (I was sleeved on 12/12/19) is I put refried Beans in a bowl, add ground beef (I puréed this that 2nd week) and then add salsa and cheese. Microwave it and bam! Super easy. I’m 5 weeks out now and I still make it all the time. I’ve even added olives, used turkey meat instead of ground beef.. I like it cuz it’s quick and a lot of protein!!

Surgery date was 1/13. I am on carnation breakfast essentials for this week.Also broth, juices Jello etc.Having a hard time getting them down.Anyone else have this problem?
I had surgery on the 8th and jello is really the only thing that still hurts going down....i suppose maybe I'm not chewing it enough but it's the only time when I really still get that sternum pain like gas is trying to escape.... sugar free popsicles have been my favorite treat lol

Kinda hard to chew Jello.Everything I eat or drink hurts in the sternum.I haven't been able to find sugar free pops.I have friends that have found them and by the time I get there they must have run out.I had checked way before I had surgery and can't find them.I'll have to keep trying.

Me, too - gave away my sugar free jello because it causes pain (am six weeks out.) But I'm only taking in 850-950 calories a day so it's no longer needed, thank goodness. It did help me with weight loss prior to surgery, though.

Hey everyone I had The sleeve done January 9 2020 An Hw 276 Sw 262 Cw 253 An I haven’t lost any more weight I’m so frustrated 😤 The only thing I notice was my sides has went in on my stomach and my face look skinny. Not only that I can drink a whole water bottle and it doesn’t hurt . My doctor said it was ok but I don’t think that’s normal. I do everything I suppose to I look at myself in the mirror and it makes me regret this 😞

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.

      I'm new to this weight loss journey and not going to lie about its touch and can be quiet over whelming sometimes.

        I agree, I just came home yesterday from being sleeved and there's so much to get used to. I know I can do this and don't regret my decision at all.

        Not going to lie this is one of the hardest things I have ever done and dare someone to say I took the easy way to weight loss LOL! Hang in there the first couple of weeks are hard. But it gets better 😉
