Thank you. We got 6.5 inches of snow in the snow blizzard last night. Hubby and I had to get out in that crap last night to go to work at the hospital here. Tonight it is not as bad.

Hurrah for you!!! Just getting the surgery behind you is a fantastic accomplishment!! I just remember thinking "And this too shall pass". Before you know it, you will be able to eat almost anything, except a lot less. Just keep to your stages and follow your doctor's instructions. I still am working on the slowing down when I eat. Guess that's always been a big problem for me. Congrats on your surgery. You will be feeling great very soon. Best of luck to you.

Greetings,

I am on the soft stage. The only protein powder I can stand is the Unflavored Unjury-which I put in my low-sodium V8 juice.
I drink water, powerade zero, V8-Low sodium and of course-skim milk. I eat 3 meals a day of 2 Tablespoons of what is on my diet stage at the time.
I sleep 8 hours a day and that is in the daytime. I keep that routine as I work night shift and although I am off work until Jan 29th it is better for me. But, needless to say we don't sip when we are asleep unless we have to get up and go to the bathroom.

I am getting used to my pouch more and it's little moods, etc..

Moving on......

Hi. The second stage is so much better. I did not get tired of the food. I just remember how difficult it was to eat and try to drink all of the water I needed. There didn't seem to be enough hours in the day at first. Just be sure to stay hydrated. I usedpedia pops to help with dehydration. I had my surgery in September and have lost weight slowly but steadily since. I wish you the best with your surgery. You will feel better every day.

I was just on the Bariatriceating.com site and found that they have a Multivitamin that is the best I have seen so far and which is what I will look into using myself when the time gets closer. Journey Baratric Multiformula capsules.

I will be having my surgery next year and so I am using all this time I have to get ready and I have been learning quite a bit

Some good books (they are also available as e-books) I have found are:

*The Weightloss Surgery Workbook-Deciding on Bariatric Surgery, Preparing for the procedure, and changing habits for post-surgery success- by Doreen Samelson

*How My diabetes was cured, Bariatric surgery is the Answer- by Anne Gamache Martin

*The Complete Idiot's Mini Guide to what you must know about Bariatric Surgery- by Margaret Furtado, MS., RD., LDN., RYT.

*Okay, I've gone through Weightloss surgery, Now what do I do?-by Joanne M. Moff PA-C

*Eat It Up!- by Connie Stapleton, Ph.D

*Practical Advice for Lifetime Maintenance After Bariatric Surgery- by Pamela Harrelson.


There are also books out there with recipes, etc for afterwards.


I am working on my consistency with my food and exercise tracking. so, far that is doing well.

There are good recipes on the recipe website for Spark People. Just go slow and take your time with the steps. Find different ways to dress up the food, mix it up a bit.

There are also websites for Bariatric recipes, do a search.

hello, I am a new member of SparkPeople and I think I will enjoy it. I have just recently went through gastric sleeve surgery. As of January 6th ( when they put me on the strick diet before the surgery I have lost 28 pounds. I am feeling better. I had my surgery on January 30th and am doing pretty well. I went to the doctor yesterday and they said I can start on the second stage of foods. I am so excited. Do you have any recipes that could go along with the soft solid stage for foods. I am excited to eat yogurt, and oatmeal and other things, but know that I will be getting sick of those as well, as i did with the liquid diet.
Any suggestions. I am up for anything.
