    Today has been the best day, almost normal except feeling very full most of the time. No pain and gas is almost all gone. I'm very glad I did it, but those first few days are rough aren't they? gets better each day.

    So glad to hear you say that. I was beginning to wonder if the gas would ever go away!

    You and I have the same goal weight and started at the same.

    Hey Meagan,
    Glad to hear you are doing better. You are right the first few days are rough and I still have some gas. But it is getting better every day.

    She thought she could, so she did!!

    Alphalion, I only had a 3 day preop, I mostly tried to focus on making good protein shakes and practiced taking tiny bites. I am slowly trying meats, but really even at 7 weeks out, soft things like cheese and yogurt, scallops and soup feels the best going down. I can't wait to have a good salad! I miss those!
    Good luck Rnvegas; you should have a nice trip. It's not a fancy place, but everyone I thought was very nice, sure they do things a little differently, but I think it was WELL WORTH $4-7k cheaper! I will spare myself a "private room' or deal with a small mexican pillow for that! LOL
