7 days and still on liquids, let me tell you it ain't fun at all. The pain from surgery is almost gone but the idea of continuing to drink liquids all day is really taking a toll on me idk, I feel no energy and sometimes get dizzy. Its mental strength that I need i am driving myself crazy, but I know this too shall pass.

Hang in there! It's only temporary. I have my surgery on Monday, the 14th. I'm kinda nervous. But I am thinking positive. It's our new start to a healthy new us! Update when you can :)

Hang in there, but check with your doctor. Based on how you’ve been feeling, they may approve you to,move to the next stage sooner.

Yeah, eight days out and I just started purees. I do feel MUCH better. I have almost no pain now, A teeny bit, but not even enough to bother with Tylenol. I just put my heating pad on my tum and it works well manage my pain. So far I have made a pureed black bean Soup, whipped cauliflower mashed potatoes with chives and LF cream cheese, smoked tuna pate and sugar free Jello pudding, which I added dark cocoa powder and cinnamon, whipped it for 10 min, poured into 4 oz containers that i had spread 1TBSP of all natural no sugar Peanut Butter into the bottom and put it into the freezer to set. came out sort of like a mouse! I used 1% milk.

The tuna "pate" is a can of chunk light tuna in Water, undrained, 2 TBSP lowfat cream cheese, slices of red onion chopped, a couple of dashes of liquid Smoke and salt/pepper to taste. I threw it all into a food processor and ground it until it was as smooth as hummus. I thought it came out pretty good as well.

No, actually. The slices of onion are almost paper thin. But sauteing might not be a bad idea!

I was on Clear Liquids for 2 weeks after surgery, then full for a week. It was by far the hardest part of surgery for me, even more than the post op nausea and a kidney stone I had 11 days post op. It feels like forever when you're going through it, but it passes quickly and before you know it, it is over. Once you get past liquids it is so much easier! Hang in there!

      I am   finishing up all I have to do to have the Loop Duodenal Switch. I have had a Sleeve which didn't work out well for me and I gained some weight back. My Dr. Suggested the Loop. So only thing I have left now is hearing back from my Bariatric Dr. With an appt. But I would love the be able to talk to some people who have had/going to have/going through process of the Loop Duodenal Switch. Forums? Support Groups?
      Thank You

        Just keep in high spirits. I'm 9 weeks post op and I'm glad I did it. Do you have a surgery date?

      It's been so long since I came here and I'm disappointed in myself for that, it's such a wonderful forum with amazing people. 
      But I'm back with exciting news: I had my surgery in August of 2019, and I met my goal of 180 by the fall of 2020! And even better: as of today I've far surpassed my initial goal and am now at 156lbs!
      In hindsight, I made the goal of 180 never dreaming I would be able to go below that, and yet, in the back of my mind I always knew that somewhere in the 150s would be the absolute ideal for me, I just never thought that would be a possibility, even with this surgery. So this is a dream come true for me!
      The mind is a very powerful machine, and I guess my mind clearly said "we're not done here" when I got to 180. I didn't even try to get below it, to be perfectly honest - it took no effort on my part, the weight just kept (keeps?) melting off of me. 
      That sounds like the worst kind of humblebrag, almost cringe-level - but I truly don't mean it that way. It's just that I'm just completely gobsmacked! I never in a million years expected this to happen!
      More good news: I started exercising with a program I'm obsessed with called Essentrics last October - heck, I've only missed a handful of days since I started. I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be so excited about working out, that it would be the highlight of my day, even. But it is! I always haaaated exercise! But this program is downright enjoyable and I always feel something akin to euphoria at the end of my workouts. That's not an exaggeration. It's possible that doing this is why I kept losing weight, but I'm not sure, because it's not cardio-heavy at all...it's more like just stretching and moving your body, I guess kinda like a more "active" form of yoga, but NOT yoga, it's hard to describe honestly. Nothing fancy, it just really feels good for my body, I can't say enough about it. I can't imagine it burns that many calories since there is very little cardio involved, but I don't know because I don't do math and that's that lol.
      But now I have a new goal, and it's a big one: get back to a nutritious, healthy diet (maintenance I mean, not active weight loss). I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I have to be brutally honest with myself, and this is the ideal place to do it - the fact is, my diet SUCKS. I haven't even tried to eat healthily for quite awhile now. I'm so ashamed of myself just typing that out, but I need to face it and admit it to myself before I can fix it.
      I haven't participated on this forum for way too long, and that was a mistake. This forum is amazing and filled with such great people who always inspired me so much!
      So now I'm back because, even though I'm at my goal, the fact is, this is a lifelong journey - it's not just the weight loss part, it's so much more than that. I need help getting my diet back on track. I need the inspiration and excellent advice I always found here. Just because I'm at goal doesn't mean I'm done - far from it.
      So although I'm embarrassed that my diet (currently!) sucks, I can at least give myself credit for finally admitting it and setting my intention to change that. Being at goal weight does NOT mean I'm healthy. It's great that I'm exercising, but if I'm not giving my body the nutrition it needs, then I'm only hurting myself. If I took the giant step of having bariatric surgery, I owe it to myself to follow through with the WHY I did it - which was to become healthy again - and that is sooo much more than a number on the scale.
      I'm ready to make the changes necessary to get myself into the healthiest state possible. I won't be perfect, nobody is, but it's time for me to truly commit to giving my body the healthy nutrition it deserves as best as I can. I don't know where to start though, it's like I need an entire education about it. But I'm ready and willing to learn.
      I'm so happy to be back here because I know that inspiration is found everywhere here in this forum.
