I was sleeved on the 14. I was down 20 pounds after 12 days but haven't weighed since. I see the surgeon tomorrow. I came home with a drain but they took it out after 7 days. No big deal. I went back to work after 4 days but I do find I need an afternoon nap occasionally. I'm on phase 3 of my dr's plan which is soft food. I struggle to get in my 70 grams of Protein. I feel like I'm constantly shoving food down my throat to get the protein in!! It's hard! But I suspect that once I start eating solids, it will be easier. At least, I'm seriously hoping. Anyway, I haven't had any issues. I feel better than I did before surgery, plenty of energy, no more grouchy than usual, lol. Already down one size. :) hope it's always this good!!!!!

HEY! Another 27th-er. I was in the ICU for 4 days after surgery, released yesterday. I've been drinking as much as I can. Diet Snapple, LowCal Gatorade, Water and beef broth. Jello right now is kind of iffy because it kkinda hurts after a while but it goes away. The only pain I have is from my largest incision and the area surrounding it. Other than that, i'm feeling fab. Just hope I don't get dehydrate, 2oz an hour is killing me.

I couldn't drink Water for like the first 5 days after surgery but apple juice (diluted with water) went down so much better. I'm still not drinking as much as I'd like to but it really gets better each day. My nutritionist had me start soft foods yesterday, struggling a lot with that. I can only have a bite or two but she said that in the first couple weeks don't worry about what you're consuming and to go at your body's pace.

I was sleeved on 8/28' date=' and feel great!!! Down 24 pounds!! 12 of that pre-op liquid diet.

I hate crushing my meds, and I want a bite of something crunchy!!

Try crushed iced with a little Crystal Light on it for flavor and eat with a plastic spoon for small bites. I buy the good crushed ice from a local convenience store. It sure satisfies my need for crunching!

Sounds like everyone is doing ok. I'm happy for all of us. We made a HUGE decision and our lives are changing already.

Lake K - I'm so so sorry for your loss. He is looking down in you cheering you on. We will hit 50 together looking and feeling fabulous!

I started at 257lbs. Was 247lbs day of surgery. My goal weight is 150 with a year and a half to get there.

KY Christi - you go girl!

I'm off too be mean mom

And make sure lunches are made and homework is complete. I hope we can go through the journey together. Peace.

Sleeved on 8/21. Spent 4 days in the ICU. Had 4 blood transfusions due to some bleeding out during surgery. Had to go the ER on the 30th due to chest pains and shortness of breath. Now I'm home and having trouble getting into a comfortable position to sleep and still trying to get hydrated. Any suggestions/advice?.....on sleeping and drinking bcuz Water is becoming so boring. And does anyone know how to keep the taste of dehydration out of your mouth whilst sleeping.

Thank goodness you are okay and home.

I have to sleep half laying down half sitting with pillows under my legs and around my sides. Like a cocoon ????

I brush my tongue with no burn listerine before bed. It helps.

      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.
