I'm trying to take Gas-X more frequently. My weakness has passed -- thank goodness! I think we all just have to take this one day at a time! Keep up the good work everyone! It's all worth it!

August 27th sleever here.. I am LOVING my decision to get my sleeve. There are times I wonder if they actually sleeved me at all.. but then there are times I know for sure. I have lost since the beginning of the pre op diet a total of 37lbs!! I have returned to work a week ago, which has turned out to be more of a struggle than I thought it would be. I am on nights, trying not to eat during the day when I'm up so I can save my meals for at night.. its just all confusing. I'm still struggling to get all my Protein and fluids in.. but I try and that's all I can do. I can't wait to hit the gym.. going today to see what all they offer. I hope all my other 8-27 sleevers are doing well.. hard to believe in a week we will be one month out!! :) one day at a time..

I see a whole lot of people saying they're not hungry- i am ... And i feel very hungry sometimes- though i'm following all the doctor's orders I feel very hungry throughout the day

my dr suggested add benefiber to some food or drinks, made a huge difference in my hunger!

Sleeved 8/21 down 30lbs. And still never hungry. I hardly eat. What about you guys?

I had my sleeve on 8/21 too. I feel my stomach empty sometimes and I feel like I need to eat something. For the most part I can do without eating....no cravings is fantastic! I have lost 32 lbs so far.

Had my 1 month post-op today, was so happy all my labs came back normal. I was afraid my doctor was going to fuss me since I haven't been taking my Vitamins like I should.

I too feel very hungry. I am on the puréed foods. I'm wondering if the amount of hunger depends on the size of our pouches...

Me too. I get hungry often but thankfully it isn't the same type of hunger as before.

I definitely agree. It's not ravenous, have to eat now hunger, it's just better. :-)

I was sleeved on 8/12/13. I'm happy with the weight loss, but experience nausea most of the day. Any ideas what I can do or what may be happening? I also have diarrhea -- this started when I began the pre-op clear liquid diet and still continues. I'm 5 weeks post op now. Help!

I was sleeved 8/28 and I had diarrhea until I got to the soft foods stage (week 3). Some foods still give me nausea and I never know what is going to do it! As best I can figure, it's rich foods like Mayonnaise and cream Soups. I can drink milk just fine and eat cottage cheese like a champ without issue. I'll be 4 weeks post op tomorrow, so I feel your pain!

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
