Great idea!

Feeling good....getting my liquids and Protein in! No nausea, no vomiting. Still a bit tired, but hey, it's only been a week. Even had a normal BM (never thought I would be so proud of poo - ha ha).

I've even lost 5 lbs from surgery day to today....yes, 5 lbs in ONE WEEK! It still seems too good to be true. This may be the best thing I have ever done for myself.

I got sleeved the 8th fun fun liquids for 3more weeks yaya. I have had pain but am pretty much ok. How is everyone else. Tell me when do you all get mushy foods. Not really hungry but curious lol. I like that I have somewhere to vent my emotions other than telling everyone in Facebook land look at me I got sleeved. Good luck to you all and stay in touch hugs. Can't wait to hear your stories in months to come when you hit some great goals in weightloss.

Tomorrow is my surgery date. I am ready. I've been ready almost since I've started this process. I am sick of huffing up the stairs, having trouble with socks and shoes. Had my first elevated A1C a couple of months ago but all fasting blood sugars are still ok. Had my first elevated cholesterol level several months ago. My knees have been bothering me progressively worse over the past year. I learned that my stress incontinence is as bad as it is because of my weight. My husband says I snore. Yes I am ready! I am doing this for my health, for my life. The nice side effect will be the loss of weight and nicer clothes but not my reason for doing it. Have found myself to be a little tearful the past couple of days. I'm not afraid of surgery. I think it's just the major change coming. Could be the pre-op liquid diet. LOL. 0800 tomorrow morning my life will begin to change for the better.

My surgery is scheduled for the 26th also. I start the 2 week pre-op tomorrow. At least my husband won't be home this week, he'll be out of town on business. Can't wait for 2 weeks to pass!

i was sleeved on the 7th. down 14 lbs total since the start of pre-op diet and down 3.8 lbs since day of surgery! i am doing good, off of pain meds but having trouble getting in all of my liquids/protein. i keep sipping but after a few sips i feel full.. like im going to explode.. haha. so i have to stop, walk around a bit and wait until that full feeling goes away. im also glad to have this support system here! :)

I was also sleeved on the 4th. I haven't weighed in a few days but I was around 29 pounds lost ( pre and post op). Feeling okay physically, I over did it today and am paying for it. On the bright side my kitchen is spotless.

Look forward to keeping up with everyone.

I had my surgery feb 6th. So far I'm getting in all my liquids, protien has been a little issue since it fulls me really fast. But I am trying. As far as pain, I still have a little pain in my tummy. Also when I drink I feel some pain down in my stomach for like 3 secs. I don't know what's that about. Maby cause I had a hernia repiar?? I can sleep on my left side now yeaa. Lol. I can tell I'm losing already, and it hasn't been a week. I know I'm losing inches. Also I been having diarrhea smh. Is that normal?

I'm also trying to be creative with this liquid diet, its getting boring but I don't have much choices. All in all I feel great, a little weak though. I am greatful to god for getting an opportunity to have surgery and get a second chance.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
