Has anyone found a clear Protein Drink they like or can get down? I can’t stand stuff like Gatorade. Are there any that actually taste good?

March 18th

I was scheduled for March 4th but was rescheduled for attending my mom funeral on February 23rd. Covid. Probably better to give me more time to get the grieving under control.

I'm so sorry. Huge hugs to you.

I just ordered clear Protein drinks from ideal fit. I have not tried them but a number of people suggested them and my friend who had WLS 4 months ago said she absolutely loves them. As soon as I get them, I can report back. She did say that she pre-mixes them because she likes to let them sit before drinking them otherwise they are a little bit gritty but after letting them sit for 20 minutes they are really good. I'm hoping they are as good as everyone is saying.

I picked up regular and Bone Broth from Trader Joes and some sugar free Jello cups from Walmart (generic). I also bought some bottled clear Protein (like a gatorade but with protein) on Amazon. I am going in in a little over an hour 😬 Good vibes and prayers to everyone on your procedures! xo

Sending you over all good vibes! So exciting!

Does anyone feel like they are going to burst with anxiety / excitement / nerves - whatever this is? I am not till the 10th and yet today when I looked at my phone and saw March - I think reality hit. I have been having jitters all day - might also be from the liquid diet but I think it is looking at the calendar and seeing March!!!

These next 10 days are going to be hard.

I'm excited, not really nervous for surgery, I've had two C-sections, so surgery isn't new to me, but nervous about the what if's, but I need to do this for me, controlling my blood pressure with a pill is just not what I wanted, I have lost 40 pounds on my own, but it has taken 20 years and consumed so much of my life already, never thought I would go this route, so hoping it all works out for the better.

I am scheduled for March 10 for VSG. Excited and anxious at the same time. Started the liquid diet yesterday but I feel very hungry all day. I hope this improves. Good luck to all.

I know!! I go in for my preop and COVID testing this afternoon where they're supposed to tell me my reporting time and surgery time - then I get a text message asking me to confirm my 7:30am appt for Wednesday!!!! Having a time makes it sooooo real!!! Freaking out on the inside. My husband, mother and oldest child are freaking out enough on the outside that I have to be the calm one.

Did my preop and Covid on Friday, mine is set for 2pm, I can't eat or drink starting midnight Tuesday and surgery is not until 2pm, that is going to suck.

Did preop last Thursday and COVID test Saturday. I have to call tomorrow afternoon to see what time I have to check in, I am really hoping it is in the morning because I cannot take waiting around all day!

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
