Hi there! I was sleeved Aug 20.

1. A typical day: 1 Shakeology chocolate shake with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 babybel light cheese, half a bottle of Powerade Zero, 1 Max Protein vanilla powder shake with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 2 oz unsweetened apple sauce.

2. Other than the acid reflux the first week, I haven't had much nausea. I found out I'm allergic to the steri strips they used so taking Benadryl but really not bad at all. My energy levels really improved a week post op and when I added the Shakeology mix in - it has more nutrients than just Protein and is one of the few Protein shakes I can stomach and think tastes good!

3. I've lost about 29 lbs since my highest weight when I went into my first consult.

Thank you! I'm battling head hunger but seeing the scale move has been the most encouraging thing. I was an idiot and was overly enthusiastic in being prepared - so I have tons of Isopure that I can't stand the aftertaste. I'm using almond milk because it has 50% more Calcium than normal milk and after chatting with my NUT and fears of growing lactose intolerant because of more dairy in the beginning, almond milk is good for that.

Posative: I have lost 45 pounds. I was sleeved aug 14 th and had 2 weeks liquid diet before.

238 now 192

Not so positive: I am having trouble eating still.

Nurse said to just work on getting Protein in and Water.

I still am only getting about 40 grams of protein daily.

I do not have nausea as much as fullness and uncomfortable after eating.

Have tried Jello, runny mashed potatoes and refried Beans. Not so great. I feel hungery but... Eating isn't worth it.

Having trouble with pain on left side still but we just made a 350 mile move and I have not lifted over 5 pounds I still have probably been too active. Still I am keeping hope alive!!:):). I will feel better and be skinny too. Lol;).

Hey there! I was sleeved on Aug 14 as well :)

1) pure Protein Shake in the morning (which I don't like at all), yogurt mid morning, puréed cottage and puréed fruit or hummus and puréed alvacado in the evening. only able to get in around 50 oz Water daily at this point. my portions vary between 4-6oz each setting.

2) my energy is pretty much back to my pre-op energy level...yay! one more week off of work so hopefully I'm ok when I return on the 10th. no nausea but I'm still having a dull pain in my left upper abdomen. it varies from muscle pain to stomach pain and sometimes both. I go back to the surgeon on the 12th so I have to talk with him about this, otherwise I feel pretty good :)

3) I've lost 37 lbs so far from my weight 2 weeks pre-op when I started my liquid diet.< /p>

I did the smae thing with buying too much isopure. I am planning on taking it in to my dr's office and letting them give it away or let people taste it

I was sleeved 8/27 and feel tired and weak still. I don't have much discomfort but the lack of nutrients is getting to me. Isopure is gross and the injury vanilla Protein Shake - even with some doctoring tastes bad. I thuoght I wouldn't be hungry but I am. Lost 13lb. But need some encouragement. Does the hunger get better? Will I become more tolerant of prtein shakes?

I was sleeved on the 28th and I am really starting to feel the hunger vs. acid (I take omeprazole 20mg 2x a day). Today was the first day without n/v. I did feel the weakness today, and the two times I've tried a Protein Shake, I got horrible abdominal cramps and explosive diarrhea. I do feel that things are getting better everyday. Hope you start to feel better soon.

Sleeved on 8/9

1. Currently eating the things that I can keep down.. I've been cleared for anything as long as I chew very well.. I do eat a lot of chicken type meals.. I'll be honest, I've had a lot of Pasta but due to complications its all I could keep down for a while.

I try to keep Water with me at all times.. But I can only get in around 40oz a day so far... Slowly increasing

2. What are your activity levels/ energy, and if pain, nausea.. Ect.

Energy is down slightly all day. I do get exhausted very quickly when doing anything physical.

No pain in stomach area unless I over eat.. Still working on figuring out when I'm full and when to stop.

Slight pain in left side of my chest when I breathe BUT I also had a hiatal hernea repaired that I didn't know about during surgery.

Developed a bad Sinus infection on day 10 after sugery and am just now getting over it.. Still have the terrible cough.

I also have an auto immune disorder in which I have chronic hives as a symptom and any stress makes it worse so the stress on my body has brought that out majorly since I developed the sinus infection.

3. How much weight loss.

I'm down 28 lbs as of today!!!

I'm curious to see others responses! I keep reminding myself that my complications could be much much worse but it's still a pain in the butt!
