    5 weeks post-op not losing

    Hello ladies! I was sleeved on 8/22. I'm 6 weeks post op down 30 pounds... I'm am what u call a slow but steady looser. I'm very happy about it cuz it gives my body time to adjust... One thing I can tell you is that if you don't give ur body the proper nutrients like your Protein Shakes and your Vitamins, ur not going to loos any fat, what you will start to loos is lean muscle which will make your skin sag... You will be weak and your body will ache.... Plus is you don't take your Protein you are doubling your chances of loosing your HAIR.... Now saggy and bold is not a good combination... We are young!!!I encourage you, if you took the big step to health and got sleeved, take full advantage of the opportunity that others wish they could have.... Don't just eat anything. The sleeve is a tool, not a bypass. Eat and drink your protein it's VITAL for your body.... I hope you find this helpful..... God Bless!!! :*

  5. I have a cold and I'm not sure if I can take just anything... I had Theraflu warming liquid because it usually helps me a lot but this time, I literally felt it take over and coat my stomach with a burning feeling... What can I take???? I already feel my sinuses backing up and don't want to get sinus infection.... I have ALL the symptoms of the common cold.... One month post op

Are you drinking all your fluids? I can't. Are you guys exercising yet? I'm afraid to start. How about them Vitamins? I'm taking regular pills Any hair issues? I'm also taking Biotin to try to prevent. How's your energy? I'm starting to feel much better, feel my energy coming back..
