How Much Weight Did You Lose On Your Pre Gastric Sleeve Surgery Diet?



Recommended Posts

idk.. my mom will be taking care of me & shes a complainer! i think i prefer the nurses :x

You'll probably feel well enough that you won't need your Mom. So then you won't have to hear her complain. ;)

yay! congrats on your sleeve!

i HATE the Protein shakes & after having it for like 10days already, i decided to go get a rotisserie chicken for Protein & i removed the skin. i had maybe 1/3 of a 1/4 white chicken & my stomach was KILLING ME!!!! i had diarrhea immediately after and i left my food sitting there as i went & pottied. i see this isnt going to be easy, not one bit. :/

I'm going to my first appointment on October 9. I hope to be able to set a surgery date by the end of the month. I'm looking forward to it. Listening to some of these people talk about not being able to control their sweet tooth is very discouraging. But I'm going to put my mind to it because I don't want to die.

Today the scale read... 360.0!! I think it's broken.. for real... I don't know..

I went to the Vitamin shoppe last night.. and my purchase was 26.00!!... Something about these exact numbers!! LOL...

Wow! I love when things like that happen! Sounds like you are doing great! Good luck at the hospital. Bring some unscented baby wipes and powder to freshen up in bed until you can shower and chap stick/lip balm. I started my Pre-op diet on 8/17 and I've lost 14 pounds! I am totally a carb and iced coffee addict- eliminating them right off the back made a difference! I am hungry, tho. 2 shakes plus 1 lean and green (a 2nd shake if I'm too hungry - but shakes get boring! I miss chewing!) it's ok though. I went shopping at Lane Bryant today and the whole time I'm thinking "this will be THE LAST fall I'll be buying my new outfits there!" The clothing is beautiful but so darn expensive! I bought a new robe for the hospital (mine is raggedy!) and some desperately needed bras and panties. Next year I'm getting boots 'n jeans and a leather jacket (am I 25? No! But I don't care!) LOL

I lost 40lbs on the preop diet but mine was for 3 weeks. I also stayed with just Protein Drinks even though the Doc said I could add in yogurt. Just wanted to make this happen right.

Already had it the 5th and now I average about 1 lb a day. But my starting weight was very high so we tend to lose a great deal at first being very overweight.

A pound a day is awesome! Be proud girl, be proud! I cant wait for my surgery to really start losing weight. I've lost 14 lbs. Since my first MD. Appt. on Aug15. but I've cheated a tiny bit every few days or so (too much pb on celery), a bite of this or that, etc. Not much compared to what I used to eat, but I could have better results if I relied on will power a bit more. I'm just so hungry some days. I really hope my VSG will curb my hungry beast! I may try hypnotism to go along with the surgery to help with my "stuffing" issues. Can anyone relate?

        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.
