    Finally got my profile updated and put a picture up :-) I was wondering how everything was going for you... As for me, I am back at the gym and feeling back to my normal self. I am very motivated to lose this weight once and for all!! Started "regular" food now. Eating a little chicken, fish, scrambled eggs, or shrimp about once or twice a day now. Haven't tried any veggies yet. Still drinking my protein shakes mostly. I'm amazed at how little I can actually eat. I've started to notice my weight loss and can I just say -I AM SO EXCITED!!! I hope all is well with you!

    Honestly, feeling great! I took your advice though and I'm not overdoing it. I do a little, rest (even if I dont feel like i need to at the moment), then do some more later if I'm still feeling up to it. There are a couple times I thought I could keep going and do more, but after resting realized I was doing too much. So thanks for the great advice :-) How are things going with you? I believe last time we spoke, you were going to start on soft food. How's that working for you and what exactly are you eating now?

    Thank you very much! Everything went very well and I'm home resting now!

    I don't mean to pester- just one more question :-) how long did it take you to feel better? Not 100%, but to a point where you were walking and doing normal things with minimal discomfort?
  8. Well, take it easy and don't stress too much about protein in the next few days ... you will have plenty of time to get that protein in when you're feeling a little better...SF jello--YUM!

    Awesome! I just got lunch- broth, crystal light, and SF jello. Too nauseated to eat it. Just had a little bit...
  10. In the last five weeks, I've lost 26 lbs. I can't remember how much I lost pre-surgery, but I think it was around 10, so that would be 16 lbs since surgery. I have been on liquids only since surgery, but TODAY I get to start eating soft foods. I AM SO EXCITED! lol

    I may go home today depending on the results of the swallow test and my lab results. Haven't eaten anything yet today. I put the wrong time zone in on my profile. It's only 5:51a right now, so breakfast hasn't been served yet. I'll let you know once they give me something :-) If you don't mind me asking- how much have you lost in the past 3weeks?

    Everything went great! Surgery was only about 45min. I am already up and walking around. Feeling very, very nauseous though. Other than that- feeling pretty good :-)

    Thank you for the support! Very excited and a little nervous, but that's to be expected. Checking in at 8:30a. Surgery is scheduled for 9:55a. I'll send you a message when I am able to let you know everything went well. Thanks again for the words of encouragement!

    Its weird how some of us do the 14 day liquid and some do the 21day!! I wonder how they decide!! I have been obsessed with this website (you may have seen it... many people have posted it on here) they have great tips/motivation/recipes! Good luck to you too!! Keep me posted!
