8 days post-op liquid phase



Man - I did a stupid thing. I ordered pizza for my son and his friend spending the night this past weekend. uuuggghhhh that was the worst fricking torture yet.

I didn't eat any but it took all of my will power to refrain. It helped that my port area is still sore and that not a lot of times do I forget I have this band. I'm still getting used to the idea of having this foreign object in my body. I hope that it gets less weird :)

Other than that - hunger has been ok. Again, still not as hard as the first 3 days but I have been feeling a little bit more tired these past couple of days. I've been sleeping really great thought (which I usually don't do). Not sure if that's because of lack of food or what.

I was able to have the drinkable yogurt today and in 2 more days I'll be able to have a protein drink. the drinkable yogurt felt kind of heavy on my stomach - maybe because I wasn't used to the thickness - but I couldn't drink all that much of it.

If they could just invent a drinkable pizza flavored substance lol I'd be skinny in no time :)

I'm trying to drink more water but my stomach always feels full. Is this the band? I thought I wasn't supposed to feel this way yet. Well I guess it's a good thing. I haven't been able to drink a ton of juice but I've been drinking cranberry juice lately because the crystal light is getting old and i know my body needs the calories.

My BM are pretty....well nasty. I don't really like having liquid as my BM but hey I guess it goes with the territory.

I've been loosing about a pound a day since surgery. I think it took my body a few days in the beginning to shed the water I was retaining from after surgery - but I'm happy with the weight loss so far. I'm finally to my surgery decision weight which was 200. So now it's down to bigger and better things :)

I feel like at this point in the process I'm just going through the motions. Not really thinking about what I'm going to eat my first day of solids - but just trying to get through it.

This is a tough process. I'm proud of myself that I've made it so far.

That's awesome! Hang in there...don't eat, you will feel like crap after...just keep busy and get out of the house, go shopping, whatever you can do to not think of food. I can't believe you're losing a pound a day...that's radical...so stoked for you. :) Have a great day!
