    Hi Artisticdiva .. just checking on you.. and I was just curious as to what to expect my surgery is 17 days away.. and how was Dr alamanza.....
  3. Wow thank you so much everyone for your support! I am touched. Everything went great, the staff was WONDERFUL! I just asked for pain and nausea meds every morn and night and had no problems at all. Now I am home and have had no nausea AT ALL. I am excited as I can already see a difference in my face. I went back to work Monday, I probably could have taken a few more days off but my biz is not physical. I encourage anyone thinking of doing it to just do it! This site has been a godsend for me to learn and ask questions. THANK YOU EVERYONE! xx

    Welcome to the board and congratulations on your decision to have the gastric sleeve.

    I have a few suggestions. For a clear protein, I suggest Protica Profect 50. It is a whopping 50 grams of protein in a 3.2 oz vial Protica - Detail

    For a really great tasting protein powder, I suggest Max Protein. You can purchase at GNC or online. SEI Pharmaceuticals

    To keep track of your calorie intake and measurements and weight. FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Journal This is really useful when you think you've stalled on your weight loss. You can look at what you actually measure!

    Last but not least this blog - theworldaccordingtoeggface She had a different surgery, but posts some great recipe's and suggestions.

    I was on clear liquids for a week, full liquids for another week, puree'd foods for a week, soft foods for a week and then slowly moved on to regular foods while still including the previous foods into my daily food intake. Just don't get ahead of yourself. Take small sips and then small bites. Don't be in a big hurry to eat whatever you want.

    Keep a positive attitude and you will do great!
