I was sleeved 8/26 so I'm just over 2 weeks and feeling better daily! Still on liquids only (water/protein shakes) and can't WAIT to move to shmooshy foods next week. Each day gets better and better. I'm not napping as much as before, swallowing is a breeze now (hurt like HECK at first). I'm down 29 lbs. total (10 post op, 19 pre) and have gone down a size already in clothes. Would love to stay in touch w/other August sleevers.

Well went for my two week follow up and I have lost 10 pounds since surgery and total of 25 pounds since starting this journey. I am now on soft foods and very happy about that but still having to deal with gas and reflux after meals and drinks. My doctor says its ok and it will pass so I won't worry about it. He also told me that me worrying about trying to wait 30 mins after eating is something I don't have to do. He just does not want me drinking with meals. So with that being said I did a lot better today with liquids and food today. Very happy that I have made this choice.

Did he say when the gas after meals passes? Im almost 5 weeks our and still getting it.

Anyone know when we can have cheese like string cheese or sliced cheese?

I've been having low fat cheese since starting pureed at week 3. Just a little sprinkled on top.

I am now 2 weeks post op and trying really hard to get used to this new lifestyle.....because that's what it really is! A huge change in how I think and consume food! What's even more difficult is that food and I don't get along anymore. I just started on soft foods yesterday, and it seems that immediately after eating, I experience nausea for about an hour afterwards. I also feel like my nausea is intensified if I can still taste the food in my mouth. I feel like I need to brush my teeth after each meal! And, although I know it's a no-no, I find myself needing to sip Water to wash out the taste of the food both during and right after I eat.

Oh, and I miss chocolate! Thought I was gonna lose my mind last night trying to resist the urge to snack on some chocolate! :P

I'm 2&1/2wks post op and I too sometimes need to sip and rinse my mouth during or after a meal. I figure as long as its just a little one it won't hurt me.

As for chocolate - I had cheated and had a mini Reece's cup about a week post-op because I was too weak willed to not have it, afterwards I felt so angry and guilty. I decided to go shopping and find something sweet as an emergency go-to. I got sugar-free boston cream pudding and sugar free individually wrapped russell stover Peanut Butter cups. It's funny because since I bought them I've only had 1 of each, but I'd rather have them around when I have a severe sweet tooth, then not and have something I really shouldn't instead.. Good luck!

I have this happen when I eat too fast. I start to eat and mindlessly start eating like before and wham! I feel sick! I have to lay down and sometimes I actually start dry heaving. It's the dumping syndrome that we were told about. It never happens when I take one bite and put down my spoon and then wait a bit and take another bite. It is all about trying to change my past habits of eating mindlessly. With the sleeve your body just won't have it!

I am 2 weeks out and have not lost anything for 4 days. Concerned here too.

SW 236. Goal 150. CW 219

I am 5 weeks out today and have not lost anything for almost 2 weeks. Finally it started moving this morning, so hope it will keep going. I lost 21 lbs in the first 2 weeks after surgery, then nothing and even going up a few. I think it is Water weight and also starting on more solid foods. Good luck to everyone!!!

Thank goodness I'm not the only gainer! I'm two and a half weeks out and lost 20, but now I'm up two. It's discouraging!

Good luck!!

Me too! I lost 22 pounds in less then 2 weeks and now I'm up 4 pounds... Weird! I think I need to get more Water in. I might be having some water retention:(

Sleeved 8/29... Is this how it works? You lose a lot then stop and then starts off again... Worried that my sleeve didn't work :/

I too was sleeved on 8/29. I have seen some early August sleevers say the third week is always a stall-out, but that after that they start losing again. Good luck, and just keep going

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      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.
