It's so nice to get hints and tips on here. I know if it wasn't for this site I might not be making this huge step for a better life !

True. Soon as I decided to take the leap and get the surgery I knew I need the support for before, during and after. I am so glad I found this place and you guys!

Looks that way. What a wonderful gift to give oneself. The gift of a second chance at life!

So I am using premier shakes. And Premier Protein Water. I am also sipping Bone Broth. The shakes are good especially the apple cinnamon and oats flavor, my saving grace.

Premiere makes apple cinnamon and oats flavored shakes?!!!?? 🤔. Where’d you find those flavors? I’ve only had the Cookies and cream, cafe latte, bananas, peaches, strawberries and cream and the caramel flavors. I only like the chocolate and vanilla from Core Protein by Fairlife.

Hi all ! I had my gastric bypass on 6/3/2020. I had a roughy first week with pain and a horrible skin reaction to the chlorhexidrine used in surgery prep. After that things Went really well except yesterday when I tried canned chicken, one bite chewed well. I had horrible chest pain. It finally subsided but I still have a bit of chest pain today. I went back on full liquids for 24 hours. Hope things are better tomorrow.

I’m glad to have found others who are the same stage as I am.

They have them on Amazon, also blueberries and cream which is my favorite so far ❤️ they have a little less Protein than the regular shakes (20g vs 30g) but I feel like it's worth it for how good they are.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
