  1. I did start measuring myself about 3 weeks ago and have dropped 3 inches
  2. I've done some research and time and time again I've read and been told to increase my calories to at least 700. So, to those of you who have stalled this should be the key for your break through! Thanks for all the responses I appreciate each of you greatly
  3. I'm still a newbie, surgery day was 5/8/15 the one on the right is post op 5/7/15 in a 3x scrub set. On the right is me on 6/8/15 in an xl scrub set!!!! the one in the dress is me a few days ago in a juniors xL down 42.6lbs
  4. Hey there I'm post sleeve as of May 8, 2015 and I'm taking in a max of 500 calories, how are you guys eating? I just started working out 2 weeks ago where I usually burn a minimum of 400 calories. Oh, one more thing I've lost a total of 42lbs since May.
  5. Thanks everyone for the advice! I found a great natural laxative alternative and that's Castro oil. I take 1 tbs every other day mixed with juice and it works so well! No painful tummy cramps or anything. I started mixing it with apple juice (couldn't taste it) but it blends better with warm green tea. Hope this helps
  6. Thanks@@Skylia I'll look into that!
  7. I had a bm the second day. I was pretty regular the first week then I don't know what happened but now It's a struggle. And I haven't taken any pain meds since the day of the surgery...I'm almost positive the protein has taken it's toll on me. I would start taking or doing something to get those bowels to move. I've noticed when mine move and I weigh myself the next day I drop a few lbs
  8. Thanks so much for the suggestions

    Last day and obsessing...

    I had papadeaux the day before my 2 week liquid diet. Funny story, I couldn't even finish 1/4 of my food. I just couldn't handle the fried stuff after limited amounts for 3+ months. My husband finished my food and I felt pretty good when I left there
  10. Thanks so much you two!
  11. Any suggestions on post sleeve constipation???? By the way I usually try for a natural way like prune or apple juice, neither work post surgery for me. Stool 100mg of colace twice daily doesn't do much either. My only help is exlax which I'm not too thrilled with using, I don't want my body to rely on such a heavy med.
  12. @@cassiebee you'll do fine I try to document everything because I've got a friend that wants every detail everyone is different, but we are dealing with the same things
