When does a phase start/end?



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved 2/21. I had my first post-op appointment with my surgeon on 2/27, where he told me the following day I could start on purees for 2 weeks and then I could move on to soft foods for 1 week and then be on regular solids following that. I feel like my confusion has stemmed from my nutritionists confusion on where I was in the phases. She kept counting one week less than I would. I'm 4 week post-op tomorrow but will be starting on week 5 solids as far as phases goes. Is this confusing to anyone else or just me? lol

It is confusing. I was supposed to be on soft foods/purée starting my 3rd week per my nutritionist and my surgeon’s paperwork, but at one week my surgeon said I could move to full liquids and start adding in soft foods slowly. Wait...what???
Lol, so for me...I listened to my surgeon and my body. I started adding in soft foods around day 9, I think. My body wanted something more substantial than just liquids. It was different than a craving for something, it’s like I needed it. Good luck for both of us figuring this out. 😂

Your tummy will let you know if you are ready, I believe. But I’m still new at this so there’s that. 😂😂

I felt like I was literally going to faint during the last week of full liquids, I added in a few pureed/soft foods in conjunction with the full liquids and immediately felt better. I don't want you to deviate from your plan, I shared this information to say that my body needed a little bit more at that point in my journey. I would also consult with your bariatric team to determine whether or not you are ready.

Ariel (my stomach) loves refried Beans and a scrambled egg. Not cooked together, in separate meals. Protein is our friend. The cream Soups were delicious, but didn't givr me the substance and nutrients that I needed. I'm still drinking Protein Shakes, I only had my procedure on 3/3/20.

      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...

        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
