    STALL?

    Same here. I'm also in a stall at 2 weeks and at 1 month but I've noticed inches lost. A few weeks stall and a few weeks of inches. Reach out any time. Glad I could provide some useful info.
  2. http://amzn.to/200k8zO This workes pretty well for me. Found it on obesity coverage. Article below. I actually purchased a few products from this list. http://www.obesitycoverage.com/bariatric-products-we-love/

    Mud Run 2w3d Post-op? Crazy?

    Walk it. I was pretty tired my first few weeks but still walked 2-3 miles in the morning. Everyone is different though. Don't worry about the money. Health is more important. See how you feel closer to the time and consult the doc before you decide to do it. Mud runs are fun and there is no shame in a mud walk. Probably get less dirty but still will be fun. Just my opinion. I'd go with you.
  4. Yeah it's normal. I didn't start to lose weight until week 2. Just try and focus on the nutrition and fluid intake. You'll start to lose a few. Also take some body measurements. Likely your body is already changing but you haven't noticed yet. Give it some time. I'm one month out today btw and experienced the same as you my first week.
  5. I to had some breakouts. Went to the dermatologist and was given some cream. It worked pretty well. I do get a little more pimples than normal and my skin is a bit dryer than normal even getting 1.5 or more liters (6 glasses) in per day which is more than I had previously had before surgery. Working on increasing the fluid intake. Weird but exercise has helped a bit. Not sure if the sweat has something to do with it. I'll stick with the toxins leaving my body. The dryness and bumps are improving each week that passes so talk to the doc and give it some time. Juat my own personal opinion.
  6. I'm one month out and I too had concerns of the amount I can eat to make the protein requirements. I understand it's for a short time but is still a concern. My Doc recommmended 60g protein as well. I think that's way too low. Caloric intake ,all I can get in at this point is 500-700 cals depending on if I have cheese or not. Vitamins aren't a problem for me at least. Great suggestions on how to get the vegs in during lunch! Right now it's very little for me. I was an over eater so getting full on small portion sizes is good for me. Gladly looking forward to month 2 and beyond and loosing the fat.
  7. I had the sleeve and today is my 1 month anniversary. So far so good. No pain, I can drink water pretty good. The only thing I didn't know is that spicy food is pretty much a no go for me. Chicken skin is a no go for me too. Not sure why. Wish I would have known this before but wouldnt have done a different procedure if I had.

    Not at Goal Weight

    80lbs is Amazing btw. The article kind of implies to go back to basics which i'm sure you've heard. Try not to be so discouraged. You've accomplished something truly amazing. 170 is pretty good. If i get there by next year, i'd be golden. I suspect that you've likely put on some muscle as well. Take a look at the 1st article.

    STALL?

    I found this while reading articles about working out and another one about stalls in general. They both have some good information so I thought I'd share. https://www.mexicobariatriccenter.com/not-losing-weight-after-gastric-sleeve-surgery/ http://www.dsfacts.com/weight-loss-stall-or-plateau.html

  11. I found this while reading articles about working out. Wondering if any of you that reported a stall have moved passed it. If not, this article had some good information so I thought I'd share. https://www.mexicobariatriccenter.com/not-losing-weight-after-gastric-sleeve-surgery/

    2 WEEK UPDATE

    Congratulations!!!! I take my antacid everyday. My DOC said it reduces the possibility of reflux but I think he was just blowing smoke because I don't notice a difference the few times i've missed it. But on the PLUS side I haven't experienced any vomiting or acid reflux. I know exactly what you mean about the liquid diet. I couldn't wait and cheated and paid the price in stomach pains. Don't be like me. Stick with it one more week then make the move slowly. Glad the energy is up too. As soon as you get to the puree you'll get more energy to start making concoctions in the kitchen. I'm on the soft diet and started to incorporate regular foods. Was happy to eat some fish and chicken although it wasn't much. I still have soup and sugar free pudding in the fridge. Not even going to touch it unless the mood hits. LOL
  13. So I was reading an article today and it mentioned that you'd be more irritable. I took that to mean that my attitude would be all b*tchy.... I've found that, that isn't the case at all. Small things bug me like dry skin on my lips, or the way my feel feel with no lotion, or even my pillow not being in the right position. Things that probably wouldn't have irritated me as much before the surgery.... ok maybe dry lips wouldn't have. LOL Glad your home and doing better. Don't cheat, don't push the limits, talk talk talk to your NUT or surgeon if anything seems odd or uncomfortable. Reach out anytime on here as well. Everyone is willing to help. Glad you did it! Glad your OK!
