Hi everyone,

I just have to put it out there that I am very thirsty at night. I drink all day long. My Fluid intake (since I am on liquids still) is averaging 102 oz. So as you can guess I am constantly sipping.

Has anyone else awoke with a dry mouth and excessive thirst?

3 1/2 weeks out. I still wake up with a dry mouth. I try to keep Water by the bed and sip thru the night. My mouth is so dry when I wake up it feels like concrete!!!

I have noticed that I have to brunch a little more than usual too. I think it is the Protein Shakes that is coating it.

I have been waking up at 2 am to drink 4 oz but it still does not help. I will try drinking gatorade before bed and see if that does anything. Some people on here have said that the thirst was related to dehydration. I don't get that though because I am drinking more NOW than ever before. I think that with weight loss your body needs more Water as it does when in ketosis. When the body is in the phase we may experience nights of extreme thirst.

Ok... so the Gatorade at night does help a little with not being excessively thirsty when awakening.

I was sleeved on 4/17. I lost my 30lbs and am now in a stall for 10 days now! Ugh! Extremely frustrating being stuck at 265. I really want to see the 50s.

Call me super positive, but, have any of you actually measured yourself? I mean really measured your thighs, upper arm, forearm, neck, waist, hips, chest?

Chances are really good that IF you are following the Dr's guidelines you are most likely having small body adjustments and have lost size. I encourage everyone to do this twice a month. I did it just so I can keep track and if I do ever have a plateau, I will know it is a true stall when EVERYTHING doesn't move. That is something I can show the Dr and NUT and we can work on figuring out how to solve the issue.

I know that the scale can give discouraging (and misleading) numbers, but cover up the numbers with a piece of masking tape and put your goal weight on the tape. Only find out this info from your Dr. at check ups because that is the weight that is going to matter when it is recorded in your record.

It is stressful enough trying to readjust to life post op and enjoy foods one at a time, why add more?

On another note, I did ask a few people in my San Diego Support group about hitting stalls/plateaus. Almost all of them swore by eating avocado with every meal for a week to break the plateau. When I can I will upload a .pdf file that explain a bit more about this.

I have measured myself and it does help..when I was in a 2 week stall on the scale, I took my measurements again and had lost 5 inches, so that made me feel better..I love avocado's! I eat them all the time but didn't know about with meals..Would love to read the article when you get a chance to upload it, thanks..

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
