Just take it one day at a time. You're going to feel hungry. Some people say or claim their hunger disappeared and some it did not. I am 14 months post RNY and I am one of the ones that it did not. So be sure you get your fluids in. A good app to use is Baritastic. You can track your food, liquids, set reminders for your Vitamins, to drink, to eat, whatever. Its really helpful. A good rule to utilize to ensure you are getting in adequate Fluid is drink 8 of fluids, wait 30 to 45 minutes then eat. Then wait 30-45 minutes afterwards and eat. If you do this prior to and after Breakfast, lunch, dinner and 1 snack a day thats 8 - 8 oz glasses of fluids a day equating to your minimum of 64. Getting your liquids in keeps you hydrated, full longer. But its always good to aim for more.... Think 1/2 your body weight... If you can. But atleast 64. And that includes all liquids (water, milk, Protein Shakes, broth, Soup, etc).

Be sure you get your Protein in. That will also help keep you full and for longer. eggs are on the soft food stage. Ricotta bake. Mixing unflavored Protein Powder with a bit of Water to smooth consistency and then adding it to Soups and other soft stage recipes will also help you get in some added protein. Just dont go over 30g of protein in a meal or drink because anything over 30 your body doesnt process and it basically just goes to waste.

I loved mixing a packet of sugar free Jello or sf pudding mix with low fat cottage cheese and sf cool whip on the soft stage. Its not only a yummy sweet treat but its protein and you can add protein powder to it too for extra protein.

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
