    Just not hungry.

    13 weeks sleeve post op. A little hair loss just began but that's ok. I am just not hungry. The thought of eating a meal makes me sick to my stomach (literally.) I'm losing 1-2 pounds a week. Sleeping well. Feel fine. But living on greek yogurt and protein shakes and applesauce with added collagen. Oh- some fruit and nuts too. Is this ok or am I developing some eating disorder? Anyone else in the same boat? Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Water water water

    I used to guzzle it and could get in a gallon day. Sipping? I struggle to get 32 ounces. Any hints? Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Tracking weight loss

    Morning Sleepy Sunday! Is there an app that yall like best to track weight loss and BMI (Android?) Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app
  4. I'm 13 weeks sleeve post op. Losing 1-2 pounds a week. Sleeping well. Feeling well overall. But the thought of chewing and swallowing a meal just turns me off so I don't do it. Getting plenty of protein thru Greek yogurt and protein shakes and applesauce with added collagen. Some fruit and nuts but no meat. Ugh! So am I developing an eating disorder or are there others who just don't enjoy food? Thanks! Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app

    My husband doesn't want me to have surgery

    Sounds like this is HIS problem. Without knowing him, it sounds as though he's insecure about himself. Advice from an old retired RN- your health comes first. You do YOU. Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app
  7. 5 weeks post sleeve and I've been physically hungry all day. I've not yet felt this. Made a pizza for the teenager and i had 3 bites. It's sitting like the dough ball that it is in my pouch. I feel awful. Lesson learned, i hope! Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app
  8. Hello! I was sleeved a month ago and have stayed on liquids because looking at real food sort of turns me off. No desire at all. I know i cant continue this way. For breakfast, i drink sugar free Carnation Instant Breakfast with 1% skim milk. Lunch is soup. Etc I'd like to try real food for breakfast because I'm shaky/ hungry in the morning and would really appreciate your (light) breakfast suggestions. Thanks!

    September Surgery Buddies!!

    No preop diet. Just clear liquids and a protein drink the night before and the morning of surgery. VSG 9/18 @ Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

    How do you respond?

    Throw it right back to them. Say "why do you ask?" They say- because you look so great, so thin, so healthy. You say- thank you! And how are YOU feeling?? It can be a fun cat and mouse game. And frankly, pressuring you is rude and NYB (Not your business.) Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app
  16. My first post here. Hello from Charleston SC. I'm getting nervous but cant pinpoint why. The surgery itself doesn't worry me. Fear of the unknown maybe? Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I'm in preop waiting and so scared. Not of the surgery but potential complications long term

    8 days till surgery

    I'm better now. Ive read so much that im on sleeve overload. Started getting worried about tracking my macros and will i stick with the plan. Reread my booklet from my surgeon etc and they focus on fluids and 60gm protein. So that simplified it for me. 32 year recovering opiate addict so I'm really happy to read that you didnt require narcotics for pain. Huge relief! Tomorrow I'll pack and make a vat of chili so my husband doesn't have to cook and can just with me. I drank almost an entire 2 liter of Pepsi today. I'm really really going to miss that poison! Keep in touch!

    Tell us how you're doing! 36 hours till my sleeve so I'd love input- any preop suggestions? Anything you needed at home and didn't buy? Hope you're well! Sent from my SM-G977U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Settled right in your shoulder? It's the CO2 they used to inflate your belly during surgery. If you have someone there with you, have them burp you as they would a baby, only harder. This too shall pass (i couldn't resist!) Thanks for the update!

    Just got your message! Tomorrow or Wednesday? I'm really enjoying being open with my emotions, rather than the standard, "Me? Oh, I'm fine."

    It's good to know we'll be done on the same day. Great resource for both us. I'm busy slugging down soda every minute of every day And yes, Spotify always!
