I know how you feel! Not sure what happens at 2 weeks :/ have you started puréed or soft solids?

I started puréed. It seems common, it's just very discouraging. :-(

I was sleeved the 26th and am on soft foods. I haven't tried this yet but it was a recipe in my guide from my dr. Take a slice of cheese' date=' put it on wax paper and microwave it until it bubbles. Then take it out and let it cool completely, the book says it'll harden a bit like a cracker. My thought is its like a cheese-it. I'm planning on trying it tonight with some cheddar and white American. Maybe that'll help :)[/quote']

I made crackers like these when I was doing low carb a few months back!!!! I used shredded cheese and baked them in the over on waxed paper... Parmesan gives good flavor too... They are awesome!!

I was stalled for a few days too... It was RIGHT at the number that has haunted me for months... I had lost over 90lbs on my own starting 4 yrs ago...

The past 25 months the lowest I could get was 245... I would bounce up and down between there and about 260 no matter WHAT I tried or how much I worked out. I was 255 day of surgery 8/29.... And then stuck at 245... My number of doom.... I also started back to work full time this week and started purée Tuesday night with the ok from my Dr. ..... Today I am FINALLY past that number!!!! 243!!!! Keep working the process... It will catch up!

I also track my cals and Proteins on myfitnesspal.... Dr. Didn't give a calorie goal... Just Protein and Water... The days I've hit 900 cals I've lost the following day... Those days I stalled I was lower ..... If you are stalled maybe try looking at any cal/protein/water trends?

I'm up 3.7 pounds this week. I am 2.5 weeks out and up already. I can't believe this!

Look to your cycle...sometimes there lies an issue.

I gained and lost within the same 3lbs for 3 weeks, now I am losing again. Don't lose heart, just keep working the program and it will work for you!

August 26 sleever here. On solids foods, now and doing great. Walking a tons.

I don't check the scale daily. I want to hold off checking for 30 days at a time.

I can totally tell weight is coming off as my clothes are fitting looser every day which is awesome.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
