    Non Plain Water Drink Choices

    I dislike hint water. I’m currently drinking g2, Powerade zero, nature twist, decaf tea and coffee and Lipton diet teas. I also do water packs all Flavors.

    6 weeks post sleeve

    Thank you! I definitely see a change in my clothes if not on the scale. However, the scale is moving gracefully I gave no complaints. I do have a goal weight in mind but I’m not devastated if the scale don’t move. You got this... We got this!

    6 weeks post sleeve

    I’m so glad to be encouragement! I’m 6 weeks out yesterday 9/20 down 31 pounds. Trust me you will learn what works and you will get it. The best feeling is stepping on the scale and seeing my weight down week after week!
  5. I was sleeved 8/6. Highest weight 262, surgery weight 257 and my current weight is 230. I’ve gone from soft foods to solid foods ( meats, eggs, cheese and beans). I went from struggling to get a protein shake down in 24 hours to drinking 60-100 fluids a day. I had to learn that my mind and stomach are not on the same page but that my stomach is in control. I’m 6 weeks out ( tomorrow) , I can gulp about 5-6 times before I feel pain or satisfaction. I can eat about 2-4 oz depending on what it is and how moist the meat is. I struggle with my vitamins, protein and weighing myself everyday. I am now trying to weigh in only at appointments giving myself weigh ins at home 1-2 times a month. (Different scales will give you different results, all that matters is that I’ve lost and that I’m doing as Directed by my surgeon & nutritionist). Even if the scale don’t move it don’t bother me to much because my clothes show me I am losing weight as well. This has been a learning experience that I am so grateful for! Advice to you : take lots of pictures, face, body, feet, etc. it will definitely show! Good luck to you all.
  6. Honey the only thing that is going to help you be successful is you! Their is nothing you can buy or bring with you to the hospital that will help you to prepare for this journey. I took a bag of unnecessary stuff because I wasn’t able to get out the bed for 5 hours then I was kinda out of it. By the time I was able to get comfortable it was time to go home. GAS PAIN IS THE WORST PART!

    Maybe ask the hospital you will be housed at.

    2nd Week post op

    I was given premier chocolate shake the day I woke up from surgery. It was okay for me but your nutritionist will know best.

    Actual time off work

    I’m taking 3 weeks off. Just trying to get my fluid goals down packed before going back to work.
  11. For me weighing everyday only worries me so I weigh in every Monday. I’ve been weighing in every Monday for years now and that’s also my surgery day (8/6). So far every week is going well. I would like to try to weigh in once a month but that may be a little hard.
  12. Awww thanks guys but this was not a post for me. Me and the scale are in love actually. 10 pounds down. This post was for the people I see on here struggling with stalls. Thanks for the encouragement though.
