Thank you all! We are heading to India in October for Durga pujo....we haven't told my inlaws that i had surgery, lost weight or that i learned to wear sari myself. They will be so surprised! Not sure if we will tell about the surgery tho.

I hope you have a wonderful time!!! Please plan out your meal options before going, so that you are well prepared when you get there. Also, be even more careful with food and drink than you normally would be.

I got a stomach bug about 2 months post-op, while in India, and it was the one time I regretted having surgery. That episode was by far the worst, in the 7 years that I lived in India.

I am off to India for two weeks starting on the 7th, for work. I will be in Pune. I'm actually pretty excited and I feel confident that I will do fine with eating. I will be staying at a nice hotel in Magarpatta, and I know that they can make dishes to my specification.

Hi Aswell,

Welcome to the board! The first month is just awful, but it gets better. Don't worry about comparing yourself to other people, everyone loses differently. I lose very slow. I lost about 2 lbs. a week for the first 5 months, now I lose about a pound a week. It's frustrating when lots of people lose 3-4 lbs. a week, but at least it is coming off. Good luck to you!

Hi, Newlifesils! Thank you for your comment, and for bringing me back to this wonderful site! I took a bit of a hiatus when the interface began to change, but am glad to know this thread is still helping people out.

You appear to be at 2 months out now, I'm glad to hear you sounding so positive!

NMJG, Indian food has worked really well for me in regards to lentils and paneer, but I've had to dial the spice back! How are you doing with spices? I believe you are 6 months out?

Sumadnrao, congratulations on your new sleeve! Slow weight loss is better, believe me. You want that time for your skin and mind to adjust to your changing shapes. After all, most of us on here had difficulty losing weight at all, right? So something is better than nothing! All the best to you. Keep your spirits up. :)

      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.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! 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
