Hey, just wanted to jump in and say congrats on choosing July to be sleeved. I, personally, think it's an especially great month to do it in. I'm a July vet, having been sleeved two years ago. ;)

Best of luck to all of you in the upcoming months. You'll all do great!

My surgery date is July 18th. I am on 1200 calories (focusing mostly on protien) until the 10th, when I will be full liquid. Not as hard as I thought so far but the full liquid will be an adjustment. I find the Slim Fast 20g protien are more filling than the other choices. I am so excited and these forums are a blessing. I have a niece who had surgery last November and she is down 85lbs. She has been such a big help to me. Positive thoughts to all you July sleevers!

Why do you feel July is a good month? I have thought about what month would have been best.

I am having my surgery on the 23rd and just started my 2 week pre-op Optifast diet on Sunday (8th).

So far so good but yesterday was rough, I was truely hungry and the shakes were not cutting it....think I drowned myself in Water to compensate. Anyway, I thought I did a good job losing weight on my own over the past 4 months but have dropped 9.5 lbs since starting Optifast on Sunday. I really didn't think I would lose when on optifast because I had lost weight already, boy was I wrong!

Good luck to all of you, gonna be a wild ride!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
