Hi. its me again! So I have now been on soft foods for 10 days. I am doing pretty well, I think. LOL. I have only gotten semi-nauseous once and it was on Black eye peas. I had eaten the same thing the day before with no issue. I think I might have just eaten too fast. I have eaten ALL kinds of things too. I'm not one that can eat the same things over and over. I end up wasting a bunch of food though because making a dish, even a small one, I can only eat it like two times and then its gone. I'm not gonna lie, I have snuck a little sugar here and there with no issue. When I say a little though, I mean a little. I have had one square of a Hershey bar...lol...and a tiny sliver of a pumpkin bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes my daughter bought. I've learned to like cottage cheese with sugar free whipped topping and sugar free Jello (strawberry is my fave) mixed together....my aunt calls it pink lady and its delicious. :) I've learned to like more yogurts because I cant eat eggs for Breakfast every day!

The weight loss is slow but it's not going up, so i'm okay with it. I lost 2 pounds last week. I am trying to walk outside a few days a week but I am still get tired very easy. I hope that goes away soon.

I like that you said that because my weight loss has been really slow too it seems like I’m losing between 0.5 to 2 pounds a week. But it’s encouraging to hear you say “at least its not going up’ so hurray to that! You sound like you’re doing great, keep it up!

I had revision from sleeve to bypass due to severe GERD (with minimal weight loss due to maladaptive eating developed as a result of the GERD) on 9/18. I am thrilled to say that I woke up from bypass with zero GERD symptoms and have continued to have zero symptoms since surgery!

Today I got the all clear to move up to soft foods! I had chicken salad and I've never been happier to have something so plain 🤣 I've been allowed to have eggs this whole time, but they never settled well with me, even prior to surgery. So finally getting to have semi normal food is amazing. Definitely don't know what you've got til it's gone 🥴

I had the sleeve surgery on September 28th. It's been tough. But I'm looking forward to knowing my body again hopefully soon.

Pookyl, very well done and congratulations.

Glad everything went well with you.

I was the same with the liquids as I always tend to wolf it down as quickly as possible.

They started me with a 30ml medicine cup for the 1st couple of days.

Now I'm sipping regularly throughout the days along with some pureed foods.

To be honest these are small prices to pay for the fact that everytime i step on the scales the number goes down. Its absolutely amazing that I don't feel hungry at all. I think I will need to take extra care in future so that I don't become anorexic. Lol

Try to rest as much and as often as you feel like now that you are back home.

Well done once again

In the first few weeks did you feel like your stomache was able to hold more than it should? I'm post op week 2. I have no trouble drinking lots of Fluid. Had some cream of wheat and realized I had eaten 2/3 of a cup and felt like I had room for more, but I stopped. Scares me a bit because I don't want to be able to over eat.

Completely agree! I'm allowed half a cup and after, I'm still hungry!
