I am so ready to get started. I have family coming into town for Christmas. So I am going to enjoy myself and enjoy the family time. I am actually going to start my full liquid diet January 1,22. I figure why wait 4 days. I’m just going to do it. I am trying out different shakes, yogurts, and puddings now. I am very texture oriented. So this will be interesting.

For those who work… how much time are you planning on taking off for recovery?

I am trying different shakes too. So far I do NOT like Muscle Milk...way too sweet with a chemically aftertaste. I have some Premiere Protein vanilla to try. Any suggestions?

I really like Unjury in vanilla and chocolate. They have great chicken broth and unflavored too. On their site you can get sample packs. I haven’t had much luck finding on Amazon

Great...thanks for the info about the sampler pack. I think I will order one to check them out. I have put out a question to the forum regarding Isopure unflavored. My thought is if I can't find a flavored one I like, I can use an unflavored and make my own shakes as long as they are low in fat and sugar. I'm thinking Protein Powder + frozen strawberries + FF milk or something along those lines.

I'm crossing my fingers for a January date for my hernia repair and sleeve to bypass revision. Once insurance approves it will only be a few weeks. I'll hear from insurance by Christmas, it will be a very merry Christmas for me! I had my sleeve 7 years ago right before Thanksgiving. Sadly I developed some nasty GERD that has caused severe damage to my esophagus, as well as developed a large hiatal hernia.

I have 2 distinct parts to my job. With the standard cleaning portion with no heavy mop buckets I can go back to work 2 weeks after surgery. But I also deliver cleaning by supplies and because I need to lift 30-40 pounds the recovery time is around 4 maybe 6 weeks

I have a date but I don't want to get my hopes up. Like many of you, Covid delayed my surgery. Its been pushed twice because of COVID surges and hospital bed shortages. Fingers crossed for January 3rd.🤞

I like Optimum Nutrition chocolate flavor. My Dietician approved it but she also sent me Procell

We're bypass buddies! Mine is the same day. When do you start your pre-op diet? Mine starts on December 20th - and I am nervous about it because I will be traveling and in Florida for most of it.

I start today! I get two Protein Shakes plus one carb-free meal per day. I actually did a trial run of it last month, and it got really easy after the first couple of days. Plus I lost 18 lbs over three weeks. You got this!

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
