    Can we talk about staying hydrated?

    I was sleeved on June 13th so my three month mark is this week and I still struggle to meet my goal of 64 oz. of water or calorie free fluid a day. It's incredibly frustrating. I find I'm thirsty most of the time and just can't seem to ever quench it. Prior to surgery I guzzled water (16 oz. at a time) and really miss being able to do that now. Everyday I'm closer to 48 oz. than 64. I drink a protein shake for breakfast on tons of ice and finish all of that, I also carry a 24 oz. bottle of ice water most everywhere and bring another 24 oz. bottle with crystal light lemonade to work. But for some reason it is a constant battle to drink. I get nauseous if I sip too much and forget until I'm really thirsty. Aside from this issue, I feel great and am very glad I had the surgery.

    First two weeks post op weight loss

    Thank you for your encouragement! I really appreciate all the comments. Today is one month since my surgery and I have lost 19 lbs. I've hit a major stall, but I'm focused on following my meal plan and celebrating the big picture. Thanks again everyone!

    Hi all!

    Hello All! I’m fairly new also. Had my VSG on 6/13/18. I am super frustrated by my lack of weight loss since surgery! One week ago I had my final weigh in and weighed 306. Then last Wednesday I had my surgery and weighed the same that day. My last real food was Tuesday 6/12. I’m on liquids and have only consumed crystal light, beef broth, Water and sugar free popsicles since my surgery. Today I still weigh 306!!! Is this normal? Has anyone else had weight loss be slow after surgery? Thanks for any feedback! Amanda HW 338 CW 306 GW 165 VSG 6/13/18
