    You have lost 21 pounds in a month. That is very good for weight loss surgery. As for the timing of it, it seems like sometimes the loss happens in a weird way, like not evenly. Some people will lose 5 pounds steadily every week, but other people will lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks and then lose nothing for the next 2 weeks. It can be weird like that. But overall, you have lost 21 pounds in 1 month, which is good.

    June Surgeries

    I want to be honest, since I see so many success stories here and I know I can't be the only one struggling. I am not doing well at all. I did lose about 50 pounds, which was great, but since then, I have been stuck at around the same weight since November. I haven't really gained any weight, but I also haven't lost any since then. It's strange. My body is just stuck. So, I have hovered between 250 and 255 since November and cannot get out of that area. I cannot seem to get below 250. I'm not sure if this is my body rebelling. Because prior to last year when I reached my highest weight of over 300 pounds, I had weighed around 250-260 for about 5 years or so. It's frustrating because it feels like the surgery was a waste right now. Maybe I will be able to get out of this rut soon and start losing again. I don't know. I feel like I am losing hope.

  5. Had crackers during puree stage simply because I wanted a typical "snack." It was fine. No issues whatsoever.

    First two weeks post op

    Yes, you can have protein shakes on the full liquid diet. However, there is a such thing as a clear liquid diet as well and if that is what they put you on, then no, you can't have the protein shakes on that.
  7. That sounds very extreme to me. You must have one of those doctors who is just extremely cautious. It really seems that the "stages" you go through after the surgery and when you go through them seem to be incredibly individualized. I have seen people who were started on soft foods like 3 days after surgery and it was fine. Then I have seen people who couldn't have soft foods until after like 3 weeks. I don't think any one way of doing it is the be all and end all. I have to be honest, I don't think I could do the stages your surgeon has given you. I probably would have cheated along the way. lol.
  8. Hello. I have had the Gastric Sleeve surgery. I am currently taking Bariatric Advantage "Advanced Multi EA Chewable" vitamins and I hate them. My doctor told me specifically to stay about from "Capsule" vitamins for a specified amount of time after surgery and to also stay away from "Gummy" vitamins too. Anyway, now I see that Bariatric Advantage also has a "Chewy Bite" form of the vitamin. I am wondering if this form of vitamin is okay to take for Gastric Sleeve patients? Do any other Gastric Sleeve people take the "Chewy Bite" form of the vitamin?? I really want and need to stick to my vitamin regiment, but this "Chewable" by Bariatric Advantage is just very large and very nasty to me and is making it hard to stick with it.
