    Have you measured ? I find at times I am changing shape but no movement on the scale...I also revert to a shake for a meal to help shift things - having the same problem at present...but figure it will move eventually
  2. Thanks so much for all of you well wishes!

    Delana, hope all went well this morning. Dr. Nick is an amazing surgeon and you're in good hands. My surgery was last Tuesday the 2nd. Try not to get discouraged the first few days like I did. It gets much better. Just remember to walk and sip. Praying for your speedy recovery.

Hey you guys. Is this normal? I have hit a 6 day stall and now can now eat a whole scrambled egg. I am less than a month out! Isn't that too soon for me to be eating that much and now already a stall???

Soft Foods Yayyy!

by Delana on 07-26-2013 at 07:46 PM
Well the doc gave me the OK to start on soft foods Monday!!! Yahoooo! They told me not to incorporate meat until I have been on soft foods for a couple of days so my body can get adjusted. Does anyone have any tips or food that they started out on at first? I love Danon Greek Light and Fit Yogurt but it does have some sugar in it but not much.
