Today marks five weeks since surgery. I am down 25lbs since surgery day, so 5lbs/week thus far. I did hit a stall for a little over a week around week 3-4 but weight loss has resumed. This has been an amazing time, fingers crossed for continuing positive progress!

What are you eating 5 weeks out? I travel for work sometimes and once I am cleared to lift my suitcase at 4 weeks I might be on the road again at any time, so I'm wondering what I will be eating at that point.

Hi Lizonaplane,

This is kind of typical for me;

Breakfast: coffee, Okio yogurt

Lunch: 2oz Pre-cooked chicken or fish, 1-2 oz Avocado, 16oz Protein2O drink

Dinner: 2oz Pre-cooked Chicken or Fish, sliced Tomato.

Snacks: sugar free popsicles, soft fruits e.g berries, tangerines. I avoid tropical fruits.

I mix 16oz of Protein2O with 16oz Crystal Light. Which improves the taste and give me 32oz of Fluid.

I buy pre-marinated chicken from a carniceria (pollo para asar) and fish (Tuna, swordfish, salmon) from a local distributor. I grill or steam them and then freeze them in 2oz portions.

This is working for me as I am not really that picky of an eater, especially since surgery.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
