pizza is my favorite food too! When I was able to eat purees, I made the ricotta bake with pizza sauce and melted some mozzarella on it. It helped relieve some of the head hunger/craving that I was having from seeing all the Pizza commercials.
Thanks, Naynay77! I will definitely be searching for that recipe as soon as I hit the puree stage. Just 9 more days.

OMG, YES! Water is the first thing I noticed. I had a sip of coffee today... tastes like poison. That makes me sad.

Do you crave the caffeine? I saw your thread about tea flavors and thought a lot of those sounded amazing. It's a nice way to switch up the water and water flavorings. Personally, I hate buying one use plastics and felt like the tea might be a better option for me than buying the Vitamin water, Mio, Gatorade zero, etc. I'm so glad you started that post, Lisa. I've been drinking the Premier Protein cafe latte flavor to get my fix in for now.

December surgery buddies:
Just a quick reminder that there is an awesome app out there that will help you track your progress visually and automatically take measurements for you. It's called Me ThreeSixty. (No waiting for a partner to take your measurements or trying to do it yourself while holding one end of the tape measure in your teeth)

As you continue to take scans, you can compare two scan dates side by side, both visually and with measurements.

The measurements are approximations from taking a front facing and side view photo, but as long as you are consistent the progress should be the same.

I took a scan pre-surgery and then plan to take another one when I hit the first benchmark that uses the slider of what I would look like minus the next lbs lost (in my screenshot, that would be 18 lbs, so once I lose three more pounds, I will take my second scan!) Anyway, I thought you might like to try it out.

I threw CiCi off because I double posted a post in a new topic in a separate forum. https://www.bariatricpal.com/index.php?/topic/442800-MeThreeSixty,-Baritastic,-or-other-helpful-apps

How are the rest of you doing on recovery? 600 calories doesn't feel like enough now toward the end of the night. I feel hungry and I haven't gone back to work yet.

I actually got 75g of Protein yesterday, but 635 calories and my tummy was hungry with pangs last night.

Lol the calorie deficit is going to my head, it seems! Sorry for the confusion

Long story short, had my first dumping episode and it suuuuuuucked. Thanks to soy milk! I'm so hesitant with fluids other than Water since, but decided to try a cup a Soup tonight for a savoury flavour. Pray for me that it goes well

How is everyone else doing? I'm definitely having the 'head hunger' creep in. I'm lucky to live alone So I Don't have to prep food for anyone else. I can't imagine how tough it is for folks making meals for others!

Every time I pass/smell food I kind of have a little pang, but I can get over it. It's not forever, just for now. I was visiting a friend today, and when they brought out bread sticks and cream cheese to snack on - I instinctively thought to grab one. I didn't, of course, but it was crazy how quick that thought came and over rode my logic! This stuff runs deep in the subconscious, I guess

I had my surgery on the 30th and I’m currently almost done with the full liquid diet. January 14th is when I can finally go to puréed food. So I bought some baby food and some instant mashed potatoes. They said sweet potatoes, but I cannot stand sweet potatoes, they’re just too sweet. I’m only having 2-4 tablespoons of food per meal and I’m forcing myself to eat. I don’t feel hungry. I have to say I’m really sick of Soup. Puréed diet is only a week long as is soft foods. I can finally go back to regular food the day after my birthday on the 28th (my birthday is the 27th). We usually go out to eat for my birthday, so finding a place that I can get something that can be reheated is going to be tough. The packet said to avoid red meat because it may not be digested well, but I ate beef chili liquified and was able to handle it so that shouldn’t be a problem. If I can’t handle it I’ll just save it and give it to my brother-in-law. I would get ramen, but I don’t think I’d be able to handle it. The portions in Idaho are huge, so it’s not really possible to find only 2-4 tablespoons of food. I could just ask my sister to get me some things off my Amazon list instead I guess.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
