    Hi all

    Glad we are all in touch, very lucky we are all having op around the same time. Great to bounce off each other. Plus with everyone else, really fortunate. I doing the meals in the freezer to. As well as some soups. Boo recommended Some fresh soups you can buy. So may get a couple of those too. Penny are you doing the milk diet pre op? If so have to let me know how it goes, start mine on the 22nd.
    Just can’t wait to get started now.
    Take care everyone

    View all Fresh Soups – Waitrose

    Waitrose fresh soups are divine. I know they are a bit expensive but don’t forget that each tub contains about 10 bariatric portions! You can freeze them down. However, a word of caution, always check the nutritional guide. Soups with lots of tomato in can be too many carbs for we bypassers. I dumped terribly on tomato soup and still avoid it!

    Also, low in fat can mean high in sugar to compensate for lack of flavour. You are going to be the ‘Three Amigos’ of weight loss surgery!

    I bought new nighties for op and I wore them exactly once! My usual nightwear is an old T shirt and jogging bottoms. Even if I’d chosen to wear the nighties again, within a very short time they were miles too big

    I find the worse thing for me at the moment Chris is bras, I treated myself to three new ones about 3-4 weeks ago as my old ones were, glad to say, huge. These are now too big, I will wear them for a couple more months but so upset as they were pretty ones, the first time that I have been able to buy pretty bras for years.

    Oh and Penny, don’t buy too many nighties as the day of op, you are in a gown, so will only be in your nightie the day after and then dressed the next day as going home, yay!

    The nightie I wore in hospital to have my bypass was too big for me within 4 weeks! I have kept it though as it is a good reminder of how far I have come. It was a size 34. I have a pic of me and the lovely Stacey, both inside it lol!

    Slow cookers/crock pots are a bariatric patients best friend. everything is SO tender and soft and all the goodness stays in the liquid. In the early stages you can just puree it. It’s so comforting at this time of year too. I make mine with vegetarian suet dumplings (that word always makes me laugh now as it’s like a mini dump haha!) and my family love it.

    I get really really excited for all you newbies waiting to start your weight loss journeys. It is such a tonic to read your posts each morning 🙂 x
