I don't think its bored but maybe I could use a change. Ironically last night I was watching YouTube videos about the vegan diet. A couple years ago I was a vegetarian but it only lasted a year before I caved.




How long have you been vegan? Has it been tough after wls?


It hasn’t been hard at all. I’m vegetarian - have been for 49 years, so the switch is not that hard and I do add a bit of dairy here and there. It actually forces me to be a better vegetarian because I’m cooking from scratch and a lot of the recipes I use are well balanced.

I was finding I was getting really bored of the food that I had in my freezer, so I was reaching for quick easy things like carry Snacks because I just didn’t fancy what was on offer.

49 yearsss?! wow thats a long time. Good for you! I know some people just enjoy it more. I usually make everything from scratch anyways but I feel like being a vegetarian helps keep the cals down. Something to potentially look into again...

@JAKE H so I ended up buying the fairlife Protein Shakes and they are delicious! Thank you so much for the recommendation! They don’t taste like any of the ones I’ve tried before. So far I’ve had a sip from each just to try but I plan on having a whole one tomorrow and I’ll see if I get a reaction from them since other Protein shakes make me throw up.

Thanks again!!!

WOOOHOOOOO. I love to hear this not because i recommended them because its going to help you in the long run! Theyre great for a Meal Replacement and so good. Also, idk if this is a mental thing for me, but i find the COLDER they are the more filling, So sometimes ill put one in the freezer for 30 mins before i know im going to have it lol. Then its really like a shake. But im glad you like them. They have banana (which i think taste like egg nog, which i love) and vanilla (taste like melted vanilla ice cream). i usually get all 4 at a time and then drink two a day. People say isnt that expensive?! Well lets see. i use to spend $15 on Breakfast and $20 on lunch. Now im spending $2.75 and $2.75.....lol....have a great day. Sorry just drank my morning coffee and i got happy fingers.

They taste better nice and cold! I’m going to try putting them in the freezer. I tend not to eat much on the weekend even when I’m hungry (I sorta forget) but these will be great on those days. Such an easy way to get Protein in! And definitely worth the money!

I got an ice cream maker for Xmas and have been making Protein ice cream with milk & Protein Powder. I'm going to throw one of these in it and see how it turns out. Hopefully like a protein frosty.

Please report how it goes!!! You can also do ff fairlife mulk and sugar free hersheys Syrup and pasteurized egg for a creamt dreamy egg cream. Even add a tsp of sf choco puddin mix!

So yesterday I gave it a shot! I followed your recipe exactly and measured everything. It was good! I thought the yogurt would be overpowering but it had a great taste and consistency! Thank you!

I don't know what happened. Before this, I was eating without a problem. Every meal is forcing myself to eat and its really driving me nuts. On the weekends its worse because I'm always so busy I forget to eat. Because I'm not eating how I should my weight loss is slowing down.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a phase? I just hit 6 months so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it?

I am about two months out and I am having this exact problem. Getting my liquid and Protein in for the day is a hassle. I have no desire to eat. I am planning on going back to what I ate during my pureed diet phase and try to start eating what I did in the beginning.

Yay! so glad you liked it and it sat well with you! It's pretty ugly (mine aren't pretty like yours), but tastes great!

be grateful for it. At some point your hunger is going to come roaring back, and you'll wish it was gone again. It's SO MUCH easier to lose weight when your hunger is in remission!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
