:thumbup1:Hi everyone! Since my VSG surgery on December 30th I have been busy losing weight and starting back to school. Tomorrow my stitches come out and I have lost 15 Lbs. since the DOS. I feel great and I am NEVER HUNGRY. What a big relief that is. I am now like one of the people I used to hear about who eat to live. It is a HUGE relief let me tell you as I have been consumed with hunger and thoughts of food. Everyday I step on the scale I have lost more weight. I feel fantastic!The only difference is that I am a little more emotional...i am unable to eat emotionally any longer. I go through the motions ...walk to fridge, open it, think of it, just never do it anymore. I guess this is the real me

Congrats on your success thus far, you're doing great. I had to find other coping methods when I was super stressed out, and emotional. I played lots of online games, and wrote my husband tons of emails since he was in Afghanistan. Good luck and keep rockin' your sleeve.

Do you have any hobbies? Even though my sleeve date isn't until the 27th, I've found that knitting keeps my mind off food & it helps me relax when I'm stressed. And, you can't hold food in your hands if you are knitting!

Glad to hear from you. Good that things are going well for you. How was your trip home? Mine was pretty easy. Hope that is the last time I am uncomfortable in an airplane seat.

Wow Kira

I was really starting to worry about you, I had not heard from you and no posts. So sounds like you are doing great! I love the fact that I'm just not hungry. Once in awhile I think about food but I'm not hungry.

How was your trip home, mine was uneventful. 4 hours on the plane and back home. I went back to work today, just a little slower than I was.

I have lost 10lbs so far and I'm thrilled!!

Take care and keep us posted, I was really worried

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
