    Still Hungry

    You may be better placed to follow the more general post op guidelines...liquids, purees, soft foods then standard foods, with a focus on meeting some protein minimums (typically about 60gms of protein per day). This may help with the transition from liquids to standard foods. If you were not give any guidelines from your surgeon or dietician, if you google 'pureed food bariatic surgery' you will find lots of suggestions, here is one I found https://www.upmc.com/services/bariatrics/surgery-process/post-surgery/diet/pureed, foods lists as well as timeframes will likely vary from clinic to clinic. Your surgeon or dietician may also have some suggestions for you.

    Surgery Scheduled

    Hello everyone I am new here. I am 27 years old and I will be having Gastric Sleeve Surgery January 23, 2020 and I am so scared. I have a great support system but I want to hear advise from those who will be or have been through this journey. I am scared about not waking up, pain, and or complications. My kids birthday is a couple days afterwards so I guess this is weighing on me. No negative comments, like I said I am new to this. Thanks!

    Weight loss

    yes - you'll hit stalls along the way. I had several of them on my journey. Also, weight loss slows down considerably after the first month or two. If you stick to your program, though, the weight WILL continue to come off..

    Weight loss slow down

    Check into Intermittent Fasting. It's broken me through so many stalls. When I hit my hard stall at 230, I thought I was done for sure. I'm sitting between 180 and 190 now.

    Stomach leaks

    I'm curious what this feels like and how it was detected. Are you able to share more about your experience? Sent from my Pixel 3 using BariatricPal mobile app

    I take bariatric melts (vitamins and calcium citrate). Had to start a zinc supplement, because I was a little deficient. My meals always consist of a protein (seafood, ground turkey, chicken or beans) and vegetables. I don't eat any bread, rice or regular pasta (I do zucchini noodles) and absolutely no sweets, caffeine or carbonated drinks. Starting out my exercise was just walking about a mile a day. I still walk, but do low impact strength training and will begin jogging soon. I do still have an occasional protein shake after I have finished exercising
