    I am constantly cold as well. Not only are you dropping weight, but your caloric intake isn't really high either. Eating can warm you up (definitely upon the foods you're eating.)
    The only thing that I am dealing with right now is fatigue. I am getting between 600-700 calories a day (most of the time.) I'll have a day that I feel really good and energetic - I'll spend a good chunk of the day cleaning or catching up on household stuff - and then the next day I'm out for the count. Today I am REALLY tired. I am hoping that I will see an increase in energy over the next couple of weeks.

    Totally off the rails today, hit the pantry hard and kept going: Wheat Thins, slices of a chocolate orange, chocolate chip Cookies, milk milk and more milk, a Starbucks mocha latte, the remains of a solid chocolate Santa (approximately shins on down), a bunch of Swiss cheese, I think I had a maple cookie in there as well... I'm sure there's other stuff I forgot. NO REGRETS!
    However I am now going out to buy some spinach.

    My first week and a half was amazing I saw almost 2-3 pounds a day and lost over 20 pounds and then it just stopped. Week 3 and now week 4 I have not lost a single pound and I noticed that I have gained 3 pounds and I feel like it is mostly my fault.
    I don't drink enough Water because I am not thirsty and I am eating soft solids now and I don't eat enough I think or I could be eating the wrong foods. I am just feeling defeated. My support from the surgeons office tells me its probably my body going into starvation mode and possibly constipated. I just feel alone and it is making me depressed. I don't binge eat but during Thanksgiving I went crazy on the stuffing I might have eaten that stuff in bits throughout the day I really wanted to feel normal for a day but now full regret since I saw the scale go up one pound.
    Is there anyway feeling the same way or has been there and was able to overcome it?

    Holy cow, I'd heard about the feeling cold thing but I never anticipated it being this bad! It's like my wife and I have switched places. We were always battling over the thermostat in the house and car and it was because she would always sweat me out and I would freeze her out. Her and my kids think this is hilarious watching me cover up in a blanket while watching tv and whatnot. I was always sweating before and now I'm cold all the time and they are complaining of the heat if I turn it up too much. Crazy!

    Newyearnewme2019 reacted to BigViffer in Stretching Pouch?   
    No you cannot stretch your sleeve out. Especially with liquids. A properly performed VSG cannot stretch back nor grow new tissue to replace the fundus.
    Worse case scenario, you could weaken the pylorus leading out of the stomach into the intestine OR weaken the esophegeal sphincter. But that would take a long time of repeated over eating.
    Most times, in this forum, people will say that the sleeve stretched to cover their bad eating habits. Follow plan and you will be fine.

    I had my sleeve 12/11 and my surgeon said no alcohol for six months and honestly I can’t imagine even trying alcohol so soon after surgery. I am down 30 lbs and I don’t want to mess up my momentum.

    Happy New Years everyone, been having a tough 2 week period have been stuck in my first stall for the last while. But today finally scales started to move again. Dropped two pants sizes though now i'm a 38" waist. Reaching my goal ever so slowly. As many of you have also said I wish this would go faster.
    Had a tough time with Christmas at home and all the food around have been keeping this private so pretty much everyone thought I was being a weirdo and not eating my food. I guess this is the hard aspect when you can't eat the same as you did before but its my journey and I will achieve my goal that I set out to reach just like everyone else on this forum. Heres to 2019 and a year of reaching our goals.
    Happy New Years to us all

    Good point about sodium. I went from shakes and yogurt to Beans and cheese in the purée stage, that might be it, thank you!

    Yes it's normal for some of us. A lot of things can cause the scale to fluctuate even drift upward including hydration levels, sodium intake, menstrual cycles and even constipation. Keep an eye on all of those things as well as the scale to determine trends.
    Safe Journey!

    I was like that my first week for sure and into my second week as well. I would come home from work and take a 30-minute nap to get re-energized. As Matt noted, it does get better with time.

    It's really different the full feeling. It's an entirely new sensation that can't really be fully understood until you have the surgery. lol. It doesn't exist pre-op.

    Well, the holidays have been rough! So many parties, so much good smelling food, and I couldn't eat any of it. I was bad over the holiday, at 12 days post op I ate the inside of a deviled egg (not the boiled white part), and on Christmas, I ate the inside of another deviled egg and a tablespoon of mashed unsweetened sweet potatoes which I could not finish. Even though my diet plan doesn't have me starting pureed foods until Friday. I ate slowly an added saliva when I would put the food in my mouth to thin it out more. I KNOW IT WAS WRONG BUT IT TASTED SO GOOD! and I was very satisfied and didn't feel sick or overly full. I haven't had anything even semi-solid in almost 5 weeks so that was a real joy.

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this group. But I just had my gastric sleeve last Tuesday (the 18th), and while I'm still on liquid stages, my hunger level has definitely rose to an uncomfortable level. Anyone else had/have this experience?
