Hey everyone how are you all doing?

@KidaandRoux how are you feeling?

@GingersnapMI I’m sorry to hear about your surgery being cancelled! I hope they reschedule soon once the Covid cases clear 🙏🏻🙏🏻 Stay strong. I know how frustrated you must feel!!

I’m 9 days Post Op now and about to start the purée stage tomorrow. My stomach and I are very ready for it lol trying to decide what my first food in 4 weeks will be!

I’m a little surprised at how easy it was for me to get fluids and supplements down since surgery when I hear most have nausea and vomiting issues. I almost wish I did because I don’t want it to be too easy to overdo it and fall back into the same routine of overeating once I start foods. I’m going to have to be very strict with myself and measuring out portions. I’m down 11 pounds since surgery and 28 total since the start of the pre-op liquid diet.

Hydration has been my focus so I downloaded this app called WaterMinder. I set a reminder every 5 min and it goes to my Apple Watch reminding me to take a sip of Water. Really helpful for someone like me who forgets to drink when I’m focused on other tasks. It’s been helping me reach my 48-64 oz daily goal.

Hope you’re all doing well! Please feel free to share any tips and tricks that have been working for you!

Good luck to all whose surgeries are coming up and are starting their pre-op diets!
