I bought it so excited. Heated it up immediately when I got home, strained the bits out of it, poured into my little Portion Control bowl and ate a few bites slowly so ready for it to be amazing. I then handed it off to my husband and told him I will not be eating it.
The Tomato and Red pepper Soup I shared somewhere has been amazing though. I think its my new favorite.
I get all my Protein in my 3 shakes so I am okayed for a small bowl of non- protein soup daily.

Just found you all 😁 I had my sleeve surgery on the 14th. Today is my first full day at home. Still very tired and I'm a lot of pain. I thought I was ready food wise but struggling getting enough food and Water in, I'm just not hungry and terrified I'm going to do something wrong and ruin this. I slipped and slow fell on my butt from my bed last night but the only thing that was hurt was my pride and my tailbone. I am getting my walking in ...5 min about every other hour.

My preop diet doesn't start until Sunday. Soft foods then and Monday afternoon only broth. How about you?
I have two weeks of 3-4 shakes a day, and lean chicken/tuna and veggies for dinner, have other options but that has been working for me. Monday I will do Clear Liquids mainly to be prepared.

14 days po!

my infection is clearing up (still red around incision but no discharge shine monday) and I am finally slowly loosing the Water weight from the er visit and seeing progress!

11/3 sw 351.4

11/17 cw 338

(for reference, 11/13 when i got home from er i was 352! and january 2022 i was 440)

still working on liquids but close to the 64 oz … tolerating most full liquids fine but starting to get heaviness with dairy so dialing back a little there… no desire to eat or drink so i am just sipping trying to get my ounces … changing back to water from sf beverages in case that’s what’s influencing my lack of thirst (had thought flavor would be a good thing)

Friday my diet changes from full liquids to purée! will have some refried Beans and sweet potatoes this weekend sometime :)

Day 14th of preop starting today. I have been feeling hungry the last 2 days at night, could be that I decreased my veggie portion without notice or my cycle messing with hormones. But no cheating allowed. Tomorrow I'm supposed to eat light and hydrate, so I will have scrambled eggs and keep the rest of the day with liquids only and after 8, Clear Liquids.< br>

Has anyone got gastric Bipartition surgery? I’m scheduled for December 5th. I’ve been told it’s less invasive than bypass but more effective than sleeve?

10 days until surgery! Gastric sleeve. Been on pre-op diet for four days now. Excited, and anxious. Mostly excited about the long term outcome. Finally taking control .... wish I had done this years ago!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
