    You may like what is sometimes referred to as one-minute bread. Individual-serving recipes can be found by searching online. Some recipes include the addition of oil and artificial sweetener, but I don't add these two ingredients. For expediency, I mix the dry ingredients in bulk and store them in a canister. To make, I put an egg and spoonful of water into a ramekin and add 3 rounded

  2. Not quite 3 weeks post-op

    Just a quick update after 11 post-op days:

    I've been doing REALLY well at staying at or below goal on my macro's (90+ protein, <30g carbs) and calories (approx. 600-800 a day) and water intake (at or above 64 oz on liquids)!

    I also made a decision a few days after my last post here; I'll be following a friends post-op guidelines instead of what I was given. The info I was given was DEFINITELY really lenient, and questionable as far as 'okay' or not at whichever stage ...
  3. 11 days Post-op; 1st night out/celebration since surgery SOLID FOOD... ish

So, hopefully this quick update will be enough until I can order my thoughts and feelings enough to actually write about the experience itself; which is guaranteed to be a LONG post.

    I've been getting my fluids in (64 oz give or take, since about the 4th day post op) without too much difficulty; there is a bit of discomfort when the

  5. 3 more days....

    Took my pre-op laxative this morning when I got up, and am officially on my 3 days of clear liquids stage.

    Decided it was past time to take my 'before' pictures last night. I cried. Just SEEING myself from the back... I ... don't have words for it really. I was dismayed, to say the least, at the way I look. I could even go so far as to say I was disgusted with myself, momentarily.

    You see, I had given up on caring about being healthy or trying to lose weight about
