Wow! Congratulations. I can't walk without discomfort. Good for you with the mile. I just wanna feel better soon.

thank you! You'll get there. I was exercising regularly before the surgery so that probably helped. And I did stop alot to rest and take pictures lol. Alot of my pants hit my incisions so that's a challenge too.

An Update:

I've been getting 3 meals eaten--yogurt in the morning. Usually cottage cheese or chopped moist chicken at lunch. then eggs or sometimes baked fish for dinner. Fluids aren't wonderful--usually 48 oz, still working up to 64oz. I'm feeling hungry but not traditional hunger--I get uncomfortable pains that rise up from my stomach, especially in the mornings--that seems to be a hunger cue. I also get gas pain/bubbles that rise up into my chest while I'm eating. Doesn't seem to matter how small a spoonful I'm eating. I hope that eases soon b/c its painful.

On a TMI note, I haven't had a BM since Thursday. However I don't feel uncomfortable or have any pain.

I feel very good otherwise. Took at 1 mile walk Friday and 1.8 mile walk at the beach yesterday!

How are you other March 13-ers doing?

This is great to hear! I have similar feelings in my stomach that “feel” like hunger but are just gasses moving up and out. Also happens after every bite. Lots of burping lol

I’m still on liquids through 3/22. Did some walking yesterday and felt great but have needed small naps due to low energy waves.

@amandarara 3/13/23 surgery here too. You’re allowed to eat cottage cheese and chicken? ! Does that hurt at all? I’m struggling so bad with my Protein. I liked them before surgery when I could break it up with food. But now I get nauseated from the first sip because they are too sweet. Cottage would really help a lot if I could have it. But I’m told to wait 3 weeks 🤷🏽‍♀️

Hey everyone- quick update: I’m starting purées today and doing good. Applesauce and puréed Cuban black Beans going down without issue. Happy to focus on moving into food Proteins this week. Anybody else on purées or similar yet? How are you doing? What are you eating?

      tl:dr at bottom,
      I could use some advice. I went to see my dietician today (not a bariatric surgery dietician, I can explain why I am seeing her if you want to know). She knows I am going to have weight loss surgery as long as I hit the goal weight my insurance told me I need to be at. I have to be at the goal weight by June 24, 2023, in order for my insurance to pay for my surgery.
      I had a weigh in the doctor's office a couple of days ago and weighed 301, my scale at home said 302. However, on the same day, the scale at a friend's house said 313. 
      I knew I had this Dietician appointment two days later and I knew she would weigh me. I continued to weigh myself at home (after getting new batteries) and I was at 302 then 299 and today at home I weighed 303, right before my appointment, when I got to her office I was weighed and it said 313.
      I am concerned about what to believe since the doctor's office and my scale show similar numbers. I also bought a new scale today and it said 313. 
      The Dietician told me I needed to eat more protein, which honestly I struggle with. she said I needed 150 grams!!  I said are you kidding? that seems like a lot.  She used my weight to come up with this number. 
      Should I really be trying to eat enough protein for a 300-lb person or should I be eating protein for a goal-weight person (mine is 170)?   
      also, my clothing is loose like I lost the 20 lbs mine and the doctor's scale shows, and not 10 lbs like everyone else's scale shows. Also, I have always naturally been more muscular even when I was 120 lbs and did not eat any protein aside from what is in plants. 
      tl:dr- should I be eating enough protein to support a 300lb person or should I be eating protein for a "normal" sized person? AND should I trust the Doctors scale more so than the Dietician's scale?

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
