I had surgery on the 11th and have lost 32 pounds and I am on the cream Soup phase. I am SOOO BURNT out because there are not much to choose from and now I'm feeling hungry. Any advice or recipes? I ate something I wasn't suppose to yet and I PAID for it!

check out "The World According to Eggface". She's a long-time bariatric patient who loves cooking. She's got recipes posted on her site for all post-op phases.

Congratulations on your weight loss! What's on your plan besides cream Soups? That can't be all you're allowed. Can you have plain yogurt? Purees?

I can not have purees. I can have plain yogurt but that's it. That's why I'm starting to have issues.

broth, plain youghurt with mashed in berries, fruits etc, smoothies, vegetable Soups, altered flavours in your cream Soup.

I assume they directed you to plain yogurt to avoid any "chunks" in a fruit yogurt, but did you know that there are flavored yogurts that don't have "chunks"? I liked key-lime and lemon flavored. Both are smooth, without fruit puree.

What about SF puddings? I usually made mine with an extra scoop of unflavored Protein for a protein boost.

Also, there are alot of things you can do with protein powders and shakes to break up the cream Soup monotony. Personally, my favorite was a vanilla shake with half a banana and 1 tbsp of Peanut Butter. When blended up in a blender, it's smooth and deeply satisfying.

And remember, whatever phase you're on, you can still eat the phases that came before it. Broths, Jello, SF popcicles, etc.

Good luck!

Even when they are blended smooth in a Soup?

Take unflavored yogurt and mix in some flavored Protein Powder such as Syntrax. Tastes great and will give you a double dose of protein!

I feel you, Chas74! I am 6 days post op and in the "Full Liquids" phase for another 10 days--and I was on liquids for 2 weeks pre op. I too am so tired of liquids. Did you try Tomato Soup with a dollop of plain Fage Greek yogurt in? Also, my doc said I could have some very thin cream of wheat. Also, sugar free pudding is a nice treat that is permitted on Full Liquids. They also suggested putting a dollop of low-sugar smooth Peanut Butter in your smoothie, blending it very well, to give your taste buds some variety as well.

Good luck and just remember, it will ALL be worth it! Counting the days until puree...

I was not allowed to have smashed berries in Full liquid Phase. It's not even allowed in pureed Phase if the berries have seeds--only blueberries were ok in puree and they had to be blended to smithereens.

FluffyChix, you are awesome! What great ideas!!! I've asked my Bariatric team on several occasions for ideas to make it less tedious and they came up empty handed. I particularly love the Asian Soup idea and am going to try it tonight :) Thanks!!!

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
