  7. Good luck today. I also have my doc appt today. NUT appt was yesterday and was a group session. It was good talking to others with surgeries same date as mine. Hope you are feeling well. Im also curious why the stall in weight loss. And also why I am HUNGRY??! Keep us posted!!
  8. Today is day 11 postop. Surgery was 10/28. I finally feel great! I have been doing preop diet since late September. reason being I was scared of fatty liver and wanted to get a jump on weight loss. The diet for all that time was 3 - 4 protein drinks and one healthy meal per day. I did lose and that's great. BUT since surgery I cannot stomach the smell of taste of protein powder. I am hardly getting in any protein at all. My diet is at Stage 2 which is solely protein drinks. I will move to stage 3a on Thursday. I jumped ahead a bit and started to eat yogurt, cottage cheese and oatmeal. I figure it's better than not getting in anything. I know my doc and nutritionist will be less than pleased about this. They emphasized sticking to diet every time I met with them. I'm nervous for my appt on Monday.
  9. HI Halfmysizesoon, My surgery wass 8 days ago 10/28. I was 220 I am 213 today. Average 1 lb per day. You seem to be doing great! Keep it up.
  10. I can swallow pills s long as they are smaller than a tic tac. Makes my life so much easier.
  11. I am on solely proteins shakes and clear liquids until day 16. Today I found out I'm allowed Jello and a small amount of apple sauce. I'm excited about it.
