      One day at a time, that is all you can do. It is going to be here and over before you know it, then on to your losing streak ;) Just do what you can to put your affairs in order. And big congrats on the weight loss so far! You are well on your way :)

    Talk about fast!

    I will check out the videos after dinner...thank you. Including pics of collagen and protein i have...surgeon said protein was ok, has a few patients on it...but really not a much of a fan cuz there's no vitamins in it. Told him i had the Tespo bariatric vitamins coming and would be delivered every month but had to get additional calcium today as tespo calcium is below the 1000-1500 dose. Am going to try to attach images of protein n collagen...#ImaTechieFail so please bare with me...

    @Jen581791 where do i find the videos? @Readytobeme thank you!!!! That's an amazing idea! Was told today clear liquids only for 1st stage of post op eating...no protein until 2nd stage. I have Isopure plain.protein powder so i can add to soups or whatever...or can make any flavor with whatever i add to it...unsweetened cocao powder, strawberries, vanilla...ect. and have collagen peptides i got at costco which also has 18 gms of protein in it (am hoping this helps with hair loss and skin elasticity ) have ordered the tespo bariatric vitamins and was given a sample of achieve food pouch (the one i got was fruit 150 cal and 20gm of protein -anybody use these?) But...need recs for calcium as the tespo doesn't have enough...so...what's best/ easiest to take/ and cost effective? And thank you for all your replies! I appreciate it so much! ♥️

    Hi everybody. I go in for my blood test tomorrow...so surgeon can see that yes...there is no nicotine in me...been 2 weeks and i feel good about it being what he needs to see. Am going for the full bypass...just nervous. Am on celebrex now for inflammation in joints and know that i won't be able to take it post op...or nsaids...so am wondering how pain and inflammation are treated. Any suggestions/advice...anything welcome...nervous ninny here. Also...how bad is post op pain n how long does ij t last? I take care of 74 yr old mom and 4 special needs animals...i know i can't lift over 10lbs for about a month...just so many thoughts n worries runnin through my head :/
