6/16 RNY - rescheduled from 4/7 - started 2 wk preop diet today!

How ya liking the Protein Shakes? Which is your favorite? I've just made my Fage 0%, P2 powder, Stevia cocoa extract, shake. 28 grams pro. 10 carb. It's pretty close to my usual non-diet morning shake except no frozen banana (which I really miss) and real Peanut Butter instead of P2. What's your favorite brand of shake?

I had a coworker who told me she was on the track to do WLS and she had a dream where someone who had passed said the same thing and she didn't go through with the surgery!! Maybe it's a common dream to have?

I sure hope so. I am a big believer in SCIENCE. So I'm going to chalk it up to anxiety. Doot da dooOoOoOo!

@havethree((This is MEOW sending energy to those who are in surgery or recovery or waiting anxiously to go TODAY. May your surgeon say you were quick, easy and perfect. May the gasssss be a stranger. May the nausea be a myth. Walk walk walk, sleep and sip. Check in when you can and know we're thinking about youuuuuu))) @colormehappy

Thanks so much! I'm still waiting to hear from the hospital for my actual report/surgery time tomorrow. I did get notification that my Covid test was negative. I'm really nervous, and really excited, and really second guessing everything. Thanks for all the positive thoughts and energy!!!!

Do they allow for sprays? I love the butter substitute spray and some salt free Mrs Dash (several flavors) on Broccoli and sometimes asparagus. But I could eat the well steamed broccoli everyday. Thats quite a diet. Hang in there! I bet you'll lose a lot before surgery!!

Thanks for the encouragement - it’s tough but necessary...with all that’s been going on in the last few months I’ve been spiraling with my food intake. It’s been constant eating...I started this last week and dropped 14lbs so far. Def a lot of Water weight and not sustainable but it was a nice boost to get started.
not sure about the sprays - I have one Mrs dash but I don’t like it much. I’ll have to try a different one. I’ve been using my air fryer a lot. Made fries out of turnip sticks with some powdered onion, garlic and paprika...pretty good! Also made some lettuce wraps with turnip, cauliflower, broccoli, and cucumber. Wasn’t bad but man I could’ve used some salt!

I may have a June date! I'm a nervous wreck! The nurse from the VA Med Ctr called today. They need patients who have completed all of the VA program requirements, pre wgt loss, psychological evaluation, etc & are ready for surgery now, which I have been since Feb. She scheduled a video apt on Fri so she can complete an evaluation & submit it to the surgeon. I am a nervous wreck, I hope the surgeon approves me.

I was SUPER into Protein Shakes (mixed flavored powder with almond milk to keep it low carb) and they tasted pretty decent. I bought a bunch of flavors and then I quit smoking cigarettes -- now I can't get it down without gagging. I don't know what I am going to do after surgery.

The meal plan given is basically taking shots of milk every half hour with some blended Soup thrown in, so we will see..
