    Hey @back2normal I hope your incision closes over quickly. Hi @LosingKAL nothing tastes good to me unless it's savoury. I just tried a few sips of homemade banana, cinnamon and almond milk smoothie. Yuck. Will try Greek yoghurt tomorrow but maybe skip the honey I usually use for a bit of sweetness. This is so crazy with my tastebuds.

    Agree on things not tasting the same @LosingKAL apple juice tastes rubbish, I tried the higher protein up n go today and while a change from clear fluids was great it tasted like cardboard to me. I managed maybe 1/4. I did buy 2 x breakfast smoothies which I might try tomorrow. I wonder if I will still like custard. Right now I've been told don't worry too much about sugar content while on liquids only but as I progress to purée, soft foods, solids this will be important. I did love my unsweetened lycée and grape juice blend.

    Weigh In Wednesday

    It's Wednesday! 110.7kgs with a total loss of 7.4kgs. I couldn't be happier. Getting under 100kgs is my first big goal. I had a bit of a tough day yesterday. I was struggling with broth I think the ham, veggie, split pea broth may have Been slightly thicker than I'm used to. Tomorrow I transition to nourishing fluids and I'm hoping they give me more energy. Mentally I'm wide awake and can't nap during the day but physically I'm tired. I'm walking a lot and doing 8000 steps per day. Yesterday I got so close to my goal of 10 000. Hope everyone else is going well.

    Aww @back2normal I'm sorry you're having a tough time. I didn't lose much on Opti and I did it for 3 weeks. 4.5kgs I lost. Don't stress any loss is good.

    Fantastic news @LosingKAL not about the gas pain but that it went well. I'm doing really well. I'm getting bored with clear fluids but apart from that ok. Nausea has gone. My incisions are so itchy it's driving me mad! No redness or oozing though. My dad would always say as a kid that when a cut or scab starts itching it means it's healing. I walked to the school yesterday and 2 days in a row I smashed 8000 steps. I've changed my goal to 10 000 steps per day. Only thing is I'm waking up at weird times with insomnia. My nose feels blocked so my throat hurts. I'm also still coughing up phlegm eww. I'm down 5.9kgs including Opti stage so far although I'm going to weigh in yet again in a few hours. I think that's a great effort considering I started my period a couple of days post surgery which can cause fluid retention.

    Hey @LosingKAL I was extremely nervous. Before my op everyone was asking me if I was excited but really I was Nervous. The first day or 2 I felt regret but I'm doing much better now and excited for the future. Good luck for Monday. Not long to go now!

    Every surgeon is different it seems with progressing through each stage. I made chicken and corn soup (made with kernels instead of creamed corn as creamed corn doesn't strain properly) and drank the liquid for lunch. It was delicious and just what I needed. I went outside and walked laps of the driveway. The fresh air did me some good.

    Oohl I love vanilla drinks. I can't wait til week 2 for nourishing liquids. I'm on clear fluids for a week. I feel less nauseous after another nap. Still burping heaps.

    I got home yesterday afternoon. I'm still quite nauseous and a bit sore. I'm sipping while awake and walking around the house. My stomach is grumbling but I don't think I'm hungry. It's a weird feeling. I weighed myself and I've gained a little but I would say that's all the gas. I've taken my anti nausea med but it hasn't done much.

    I'm ok. Woke up in recovery feeling like a bus had hit me. Not as bad now. Surgeon found an internal hernia down low from my c sections so one day I'm going to need to fix it. I keep waking up. Managing to sip sip sip but omg the heartburn! Plus sometimes it feels weird. I just want to gulp as my mouth is so dry.

My tummy's rumbling I'm actually hungry. Also weighed myself today 113.6kgs. Onwards and downwards from now on. I'm nervous I'm excited I feel like crying.

    I took mine off just in case the hospital make me take them off. I don't want them sitting in a drawer.

    Everyone has to at this hospital. It varies hospital to hospital. With my daughter I had to use antibacterial wash but not in my hair prior to c section but with my son just a shower morning of but no antibacterial wash.
