    New to this place but thought it could be helpful for support.

    I am overall feeling pretty good, just very tired and don't really have much energy! Today I had an ounce of cottage cheese, not supposed to but I just couldn't take it. I'm tired of shakes and broth! I am down 11.4 lbs which I am excited about, but feel like if I moved more I would feel much better just so tired!

    Oh dear! Did you have the sleeve? Or the RNY? I had the sleeve as I was nervous about the other. Today I had an ounce of cottage cheese.. I think I ate it to fast and have been sort of off pretty much since! I am currently trying to drink my shake but I sort of hurt. And yes I am sick of shakes and broth also

    I'm 3 weeks out and still am not allowed solids. I can have full liquids for one more week then I can move on to pureed foods. Yes, I'm so sick of shakes, but the first week and a half was the hardest. Try your best not to cheat. This is challenging in a good way. Time to teach ourselves good habits about not giving into tempting foods.

    Wow.. I can't believe you are still on liquids. I was only on liquids for 7 days. Today started on watery foods like cottage cheese, applesauce, tuna.. my first day on that plan and have done pretty well. Not hungry at all takes me awhile to it though! Hope you are doing well after surgery!

    I also had to wait weeks to eat something other than shakes, every hospital does it differently, I'm glad all went well for you, it is tough in the beginning but then it gets so much better, I had the bypass in December. I started my journey in April of last year and have lost 104#, so far, still have another 30# to reach my goal, and then the real work starts by keeping it off, good luck with your journey

    Hi Kim... I'm 8 days post op. I know how you feel. I'm tired of soft foods too but have been "good" so far. I really think that any walking you can do will help you feel less tired. If you're up to it give it a try, even a little.
