I'm going to try this! The viscosity is just...eww. Like it reminds me of the slime I used to have my students make when I taught science class.

I keep saying I am, but haven't. I figured, it really can't make it worse though.

I will eventually, or if you do let me know what you think.

I’m on work leave and I am bored too 🤣 today I moved into the mushy stage. My diet expanded to being able to have: fat free refried Beans, low fat ricotta or cottage cheese, and eggs 🍳 I had 2tbs of Beans for Breakfast and it was way better than it should have been 🤣 I was so tired of yogurt. Days 3-6 my options were yogurt, hot Cereal. I hate hot Cereal. So I ate yogurt and was over it. Moving on up!

I am guessing you are on purées. Did anyone tell you about the ricotta bake?

I tried a bite of a friends Tilapia and didn't care for it still. It wasn't as "fishy" as I remember but the texture was too watery for me.

I mostly want to like salmon for the health benefits. I think I’m going to give that one a try again.

No, I am on a normal diet now.

I did try the ricotta bake during pureed, it was too dry for me. I wanted to love it because I love ricotta but I just couldn't get into it.

I do like Salmon cakes, I bake them instead of fry and they are yummy and low fat. I haven't tried actual Salmon yet, but before surgery it was a smidge too fishy for me.

I can’t have the sauce until week 8 🙄 the dietician won’t approve Alfredo substitute either. So I wait. It’s literally saved in my phone for when I can have it 👌

Ooh man I loved it. I practically lived on it during the purée phase.

Hummm. Never heard of that. I don’t recall how many weeks I was when I was on purées though. Could’ve been around the same time frame.

I’ve never had salmon cakes. I like crab cakes though. I will have to find a recipe and try those.

She says it’s too acidic for a healing stomach until then. I’m not thrilled about her ruling but I don’t want to mess anything up 🫣

Someone else mentioned I may have cooked it too long and dried it out.

This is the one I used. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/240130/scrumptious-salmon-cakes/

I baked them though, at 400* for about 10 min each side.

I was allowed to have sauce too, my nutritionist just said try a little first and make sure I handle ok. I also had Tomato Soup on liquids with no issues.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
