  1. I had surgery on July 20th. I had to stay an extra night because I could not drink the fluids. My esophagus was having spasms to my new stomach. I am now home, but it still hurts so bad to swallow. Anyone experience this and how long did it last?

    Whoop Whoop!

    Can't wait!
  10. I was having a stall, which I knew was normal. I figured since my weight wasn't moving I would "cheat" and have a bite of chocolate. I ate two squares of a hershey bar. The next morning, I had dropped 2 lbs. I think my body just needed a little more sugar. Won't make a habit of it by any means, but it did help with my cravings and pushed the stall along!

    Besides water (with crystal light etc.) unsweet tea and coffee, has anyone found anything else to drink? I am 3 months out and going crazy for a different taste.
  12. I was sleeved on July 20th and have lost 51 lbs.

    One Month Down...

    One month check up tomorrow. Kinda nervous to see total weight loss. I know I have been at astallmfor the past 5 days. I think the stall has been the hardest part. My mental mind really wants cookies and cheeseburgers!
  18. I was on soft foods 3 days after surgery. Did best with mashed potatoes and yogurt and star free pudding. Started eggs about day 5 after surgery. Sleeved 7/20 and down 37 pounds!

  20. I Know everyone stalls at some point. But how frusturating. Need some words of encouragement!
