    HELP! Can't Lose Weight!

    Don't get discouraged I was sleeved on the 18th and find it hard to stick to a routine. My schedule is so busy lately I can't fit in my 3 day a week gym time. Wt loss has been slow but I have lost some inches. The day of surgery I weighed 286 and today I am 266. I know people who have lost more than I have but 20 pounds in a month and a half is awesome so I won't complain and I feel better also. The wt loss will come just take it one day at a time. Don't focus on the numbers try measuring yourself and see how many inches you've lost.

    Nine days post-op

    I am 3 wks post op and yes fatigue is an understatement. I also returned to work this week. Ive managed to push my way through it. Muscle aches I haven't really experienced. Are you getting enough water/ Protein? Since returning to work I am struggling to get my fluids in :'( . Also I have hit a stall with my wt loss but I definitely have lost inches.
  11. You look great! Keep up the good work

    Swallowing Issues?

    I had that same feeling you are describing. It feels like your food/liquids take a pause before entering your new stomach. That feeling lasted about a week. Now it only happens if I drink too fast it takes my breath away definitely a remind to slow down.
  15. Nelly we are praying for you. I hope you are feeling better and pray you went to the ER for treatment.
  16. I'm 10 days post op..started purée foods 2 day ago. I can only eat about 5-6 teaspoons at the most and I'm full. Definitely getting my liquids in. I feel awesome and I love how I can see the difference in my clothes already. Best decision I could have made.
  17. I was sleeved on the 6/18 and I feel about 60% my normal. I find that my energy level is down which is probably normal due to the decrease in calories. I was suppose to return to work next week but I have decided to take off one more week.

    Dimples we were sleeved the same day..I wad on liquids until today..now I am on pureed/soft...maybe you should go back to full liquids for A few days and the to puree..I will say when I start to get full I start to burp..and loud..embarrassing..but thats my key to stop eating or drinking and it's only a few bites I can eat 3 oz of yogurt ..I can drink about 3-4 oz of liquid..today I ate chicken salad 1.5 tsp and I was full..
