I need to start doing that. I’m basically on just flavored/ regular Water, Gatorade zero and chicken broth 😞😞 I was hoping this phase would speed by put living in a house with my husband and 3 children with full appetites is killing me!

Oh I know, I’m in the same boat! Literally! Crystal light is more flavorful too! Try the cream of Soups just blend so no bits, you should get some satisfaction from it. Just make sure to only have about a half cupful. Too much more than that at one time makes me feel nauseous and weird. Good Luck! Btw is you belly still hurting ? And incisions itching? Mine is.

Thanks sooo much! Will definitely do that. I think it’s because I’m not taking in Protein but the shakes are terrible lol the incisions don’t hurt unless I sneeze but they do ITCH lol! And good luck to you too sweetie

I’m in the same boat! 7 days post op and getting hungry 😫 Fairlife chocolate milk with another scoop of unflavored Protein Powder has been a life savor for me.

side note- today was the first time the incisions started to itch. Normal? Anything to help?

They get itchy that’s normal and I’ll try that because I’m in deeeeeeppp depression. I know it’s head hungry because all I want is Pasta 🍝🥴🥴

My doctor said I was ok to try new and more things so I tried that ricotta bake that I hear so much about. It’s soooo tasty but the heart burn is intense. However, if you don’t get the heartburn from it, it may help with the Pasta cravings.

Every doctors office is different. I was only on liquid diet for 7 days, pureed for the next 7, then soft foods for two weeks, and then general diet (which is where I'm at now 8 weeks out). Her doctor may be more like mine lol

It's so strange, isn't it? I was on full liquids/purees from the moment I left the hospital. Now that I'm past two weeks I'm allowed soft mushy foods but I'm mostly staying on liquids/purees because I had a couple of issues last week (not sure if it was overeating or lactose intolerance, maybe both). Generally speaking I have a full Protein smoothie that I make every morning (my favourite is almond milk, chocolate Protein Powder, Peanut Butter powder, and maybe half a banana), then miso Soup with a few chunks of tofu for lunch, and either canned tuna with shredded cheese (not pureed, I just chew well) or an egg bite (mini quiche - muffin size) for dinner. I drink Water or clear Protein Drinks in between. I don't drink coffee but my doctor said it was okay for me to have a cup on the day of surgery (!) as well as my second day post-op. Maybe it's a European thing. ;-)

NO NO NO-

None of you are hungry! You are addicted to food like everyone else on this site! You are bored and you head is playing games with you. You do not need to eat and consume non stop.

We all had to get thru this phase! You are in the head game stage and you are not hungry! You head is tricking you to think you are hungry. Your nerves and sensors were cut out. So how the heck are you getting hunger pains when you only have a 4 oz pouch. Tv marketing and packaging is everywhere. There are so much more things in life then a box of Cookies or chips. However all of us addicts are caught in the food industry nightmare@

Ok now that i attacked you ---- You guys got this ,,,,,,,Change focus from food to something else. Slowly you need to sip something to get your mind tricked to think your not hungry. This is a b***h to do! I crashed and crashed big time The post is here way back. I was saved but my key was a puppy! Yes a lab puppy. I started focusing on him and training him and walking him and getting my abusive behavior towards food and vodka Under control. I also have chosen to Fish a ton and Travel a ton.

You guys do the same - Mix up you life. The old life sucked you were out of control with food and unhealthy. Now its time to change. Look up Fluffy Chick here and she has great posts on changing you lifestyle. Find something new to add to your life, hobbies, craft, outdoors, Partners, Pets, movies, Like Nike JUST DO IT!

This is not going to be easy, but once you do it the best journey gets even better!

I’m 16 days out and on the soft foods, purée phase. Once you are off full liquids and can start consuming more substantial food the hunger will ease. I was very discouraged at first with the hunger pains and yes. It is a mind game for sure! Keep following your dr instructions and listen to your body. I have been hungry or so I thought a couple of times on the soft foods phase but when I began eating, I fill up sooner than I thought I would. You’ll figure it out day by day.

oh and yes, the incisions do get itchy. I e always heard that means your skin and wounds are healing so that’s a good thing. 😊

I think my problem is the lack of Protein 😞😞 the shakes don’t stay down and I hateeeeeee vomiting so I’m afraid to even try other brands. I’m literally on Water and broth ( chicken) 90% is in my head but 10 % is hunger because of lack of protein. I’ll figure it out. I’ve been outside for a bit today and I’m in a much better mood 😌

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        What state are you in????

      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!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      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...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
