Thanks for the list, it is motivating! I am 2 months post op and just came out of a big stall, dropped 3 lbs overnight! Total gone now is 40 and people are starting to notice! Love my sleeve!

Awesome. I am 5 weeks out and can relate to some of them already. I am currently in my stale so I have just stayed away from the scale this week. I am still trying to learn how to eat, and get all my Protein in. Another thing I will add is, at 5 weeks I finally feel comfortable to sleep on my side ( my prefrence) without thinking I will damage my healing tummy.

Love it!

You and I have had very different experiences.

#1 Uncomfortable? I was in hell for the first two weeks. But it went away pretty quickly after that.

#5 Absolutely! I was not prepared for how fast the weight falls off. Still trying to wrap my brain around it

#11 Haven't thrown up yet (knock on wood)

#15 I'm at 3 months and I'm losing my hair now. Thank god I have so much that it's not that noticeable...yet

#20 Had this problem last weekend. Water park with a bunch of kids. Horrible food at the snack shack. Didn't eat anything until 7 that night. Must pack Snacks in the car. Great advice!

#25 Yes! I've never been a big fish eater but for some reason it's all I seem to want anymore

#38 Haven't tried a salad yet. I've been too scared. Is it time?

#46 I have two boys so I've played laser tag at my highest weight. Not fun. I need to play it now that I've lost weight. Maybe I can win this time!

Ok, so maybe we have had some similar experiences. This is a great list!

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
