  1. For me Crystal Light with very cold water worked best. But I've also heard of people that had to drink warm water/tea in the beginning. Try it different ways until you figure out what works best for you. It gets easier as time goes on.
  2. I know everyone says it gets easier, trust me it does. I am 2 1/2 months out from surgery. It's already so much better than it was in the beginning. You will be able to eat and more as time goes on. You just won't be able to eat large quantities in one setting. Having a supportive husband will really help you along the way. You can still go out to eat but maybe just order an appetizer in the early months. Also over time you can get more and more calories in, you will be just fine. Just hang in there!

    Late period

    I had that same issue too. I was nearly 6 weeks out and no sign of my period. My surgeon told me to take a pregnancy test and if it was negative I could start my bc pills again. I didn't get my period until the end of that month at 9 weeks out! Without the pills I'm not sure when it would've come.

    Bad breath

    When does our breath return to normal? Unfortunately/fortunately for me (depending on how I look at it) I can't smell mine but I know it's there. My husband has to suffer the most. I read about it prior to having surgery so at least I knew it would happen. I just hate that I can't chew gum.
  6. I will be 5 weeks out tomorrow. I am thirsty all the time. So trying to wait 30 minutes to eat gets to be really hard. Then when I do eat it is really, really small amounts. I have been losing weight consistently but this can't be healthy. I'm down 27 pounds so far. And to make matters worst the Protein shakes make me gag. HELP!!!! How are you guys getting it all in for the newbies? For the more experienced sleevers, how far along were you before you were able to get in all your liquids and protein? Thanks in Advance!

    I did too. Is that a sign that I am now lactose intolerant? It stopped for a couple days and i was so happy then it started again.
  10. I'm still on a liquid diet too, sleeved on 10/11/12. I try to mix it up daily so I don't get bored. I do different types of protein shakes, soups, sugar free pudding with protein powder, protein shots and crystal light.
