    Volunteering or community activities can often spark some great connections with people who share your values and interests.

    Day 4 since I was sleeved. Today was a 180 degree turn for me (thank God)! No more nausea, fluids are staying down, only a little soreness on the main incision, less need for naps. Still taking things slow when turning, bending etc but was able to get solid sleep on my side last night. Not craving anything, my mind is consumed with healing vs. hunger so I’m ok with that. Not meeting Protein goal yet but hopeful I will in the next day. Thanks to all of the encouragers and those sharing this journey! New life ahead... no regrets!

    Hi everyone Had my surgery on 3-7-18. Getting used to all the new “things” like swallowing, finding out the new baseline when you are full, and how different liquids react with the new stomach... I feel like all I do is sip on liquids all day long. However, everyday it gets better and better... less pain, less gas and able to sleep on my sides now.

    Sleeved on 3/7 and arrived home the next day. My surgeon discovered I had a hernia and had to repair that during my surgery. He says it’s relatively common with people who are obese.

    My greatest struggles in the hospital and coming home have been nausea and just a general sense of extreme pressure in the admin area.

    I am struggling to keep anything down and have to take all liquids very very slowly... where it all comes right back up. For some reason crystal light will stay down but plain Water wants to come right back up.

    I have five incisions. As others have said, the largest one is most sensitive. I found putting an extra piece of guys and some tape over that particular sit incision makes a big difference with the pain.

    I haven’t taken any pain meds since my day of the surgery and doing fine except as explained above. Things are definitely improving by the day today is the day I am most active and successful with beverages energy etc.

    I don’t have any regrets and I too am glad it’s over. I’m just going to have to work extra hard to stay hydrated and get some Basic calories in my system.

    I’m taking things very slowly. I’m wishing all of you the very best of course!

    There are vitamin patches available. Might be worth looking into. Other things like B12 and Iron can be monthly shots - talk to your Dr. and explore if interested.

    This is a bizarre question to me.
    I really don't understand superficiality. I don't consider other people to be meat. Or sex puppets. That's the most simplistic silly view I can imagine, and I wouldn't want to live a life so limited.
    The most attraction I've ever felt for people in my life has been based on their minds, their creativity, their passion, their confidence, their sex appeal, their kindness, humor, decency.
    I can find about anyone incredibly attractive. Seriously. Physicality is insanely diverse. If you're limiting yourself to any particular type, you're missing out.
    I can find about anyone incredibly appealing. IF their mind is outstanding, if their ability to express themselves is immaculate, if we have commonality and trust.
    Finding someone with an amazing mind is so much harder than finding someone with an amazing body. Amazing bodies are a dime a dozen.
    So much of our perception of what's attractive...is informed by the people we are most impressed by and feel love and trust for.

    More important to find a good man that treats you well and likes you at whatever size you are. That size is going to change rapidly.
    Something to think about.....
    Will you be attracted to the same type of men? Will your preferences in men change as you lose weight? What type of men will you have things in common with once you are 148?

    I'm 8 days and felt "normal" at around Day 4. But I'm not going up and down stairs and I also stop and rest when I feel I need to. I drink liquids, take vits and meds, sip Protein Drinks, walk 10 minutes every 2 hours, work 2 hours a day. and nap plenty!! And I feel really great with no need for pain pills.
