  1. Hi. I was sleeved in Mexico in the 10th. What was your experience?
  2. Hey👋🏾. How are you feeling?
  3. It gets better. Each day you’ll feel stronger. ☺️
  4. How are you feeling? I was really tired and wanted to sleep a lot. I think it was because I wasn’t hydrated enough.
  5. Hi! I got mines on the 10th but mines was the sleeve. I certainly cannot eat anything other than puddings, applesauce and liquids. The protein shakes are difficult so I’m taking liquid vitamins and protein. I must admit, I tried eating something I wasn’t supposed to eat and I was sick as a dog so I won’t push it and Im sticking to the plan. As of to date, I am 16.8lbs down and I’m feeling great. Best wishes to you☺️
  6. It could be fluid. Have you been getting your water intake?
  7. I went through that. It was divided. Some supported my decision and others opposed it but I did it and I have no regrets. Do what you feel you need to do. Remember that this is your body and you Are doing this to live, right? Mines was a little complexed than yours because I traveled to Mexico. My insurance wouldn’t cover it so I did what I needed to do. My surgeon and medical team were great, I met a lot of wonderful people from all over and I’m happy that I made the choice to go.
  8. I was scared until I did it. I had mines done on 12/10 and as of today I am 16lbs down. I have no regrets. It’s a difficult journey but it’s worth it. You can do it!! ✊🏾
  9. Congratulations. How are you feeling? Did you have the bypass or the sleeve?

    Struggling with eating and water intake

    Thank you for that feedback. I think we subconsciously take bigger sips than we can tolerate right now. I actually love water and since surgery, I crave it.
  11. I have some some chewable bariatric vitamins as well but I don’t feel like I’m taking in enough nutrients to take vitamins and I’m afraid they will make me nauseous😔. I have these sneeze attacks often and because I’m still sore, it drives me nuts! 🤦🏾‍♀️🤣 My saying is, the choice was easy but the process is hard. We are food addicts that are experiencing some real life changes within our bodies and all we can do is embrace it and prepare for greatness. ☺️
  12. I have cravings but I’m not hungry either. I think they call this head hunger. I’ve been getting my water intake but the protein shakes are too heavy for me right now. I’m starting protein liquid supplements which contain nearly 20g of protein per serving until I’m ready to take on a full shake because at this time, they fill me up, cause pain and make me Ill. Hey, no one ever said this process would be easy, right? ☺️🤷🏾‍♀️
  13. Yeah, we ain’t ready 🤦🏾‍♀️🤣. Try protein shots. There on Amazon. You can get your required dosage without making yourself sick trying to get those shakes down. How are you feeling? My experience has been interesting. I Started with lots of pain but each day gets better. ❤️☺️
  14. I had mines in the 10th. Each day gets better but I’m struggling to finish my protein drinks. I got a few sips in and my stomach began to feel like an alien was crawling out of it. Needless to say, I threw up the shake 😏. I’ve been trying to incorporate yogurt but I start to get those pains and I stop. I’m going to stick to broth, water and small amounts of protein shake but I just ordered a protein supplement where each shot is 18g of protein. I may be doing this until I can tolerate a shake. Good luck and I’m happy to know your tolerating stage 3 purées. That’s a big accomplishment!! ☺️
  15. Hi! I’m doing well. I can say that each day gets better. My sleep is so so but that’s improving also. I’m itchy too but I’m sure that’s a good thing. I’m struggling to finish anything I start eating and I’m sick to death of broth. It’s so difficult to get liquids down without pain or discomfort. Maybe I should take smaller sips 🤷🏾‍♀️🤣
  16. I just had VSG surgery on 12/10. I was so nervous the weeks leading up to my surgery. I had anxiety and trouble sleeping but you know what? I did it and I’d do it again. The decision was easy but the process is difficult. You just have to get through it. Remember why you decided to do this. Remember how good you are going to feel afterwards. Today makes a week. I’m home, moving around and tolerating liquids and some applesauce. It’s hard to predict how you will feel 6 weeks post op but imo, you get stronger everyday. Your body is going to go through a lot of changes after a surgery like this. I’m still early in mines, I’m sore, not as strong as I was but also had 85% of my stomach removed. I wish you all the best and know that any choice you make you YOUR choice. Take care 💜
  17. I just had the gastric sleeve done on December 10th and I lost 1.8 lbs. Is this normal? I don’t want to compare myself to others but I’m concerned. Is there anything I should be doing? I can only consume liquids and I struggle with that. When does the weight loss start? 😏
  18. I had mines on December 10th-how are you feeling?
  19. Hello All, I’m scheduled for surgery on December 10th. My surgery will be in Mexico because my insurance will not cover weight loss surgery. Today, I got a call from my pastors wife and she expressed her concerns about me going to Mexico. I’ve done my research and my weight is emotionally and physically taking a toll on me and I’ve been so excited but since talking to her, I no longer feel confident and I feel like negative thoughts have been projected on me. I was happy but now I’m feeling like this was too good to be true and maybe I shouldn’t go. This is why I should’ve kept tho to myself. I tried to be open about it and I’m getting negative feedback and it’s got my anxiety way up which is something I do not need right now. Any thoughts? I could use some encouragement. Thanks 😏
  20. So glad to hear you say this. I’m scheduled for surgery on Mexico on December 10th and I’m nervous.
