Yes exactly! It's very difficult... Honestly that's the only thing I miss the most :( Learning to move past it. I'd rather be heathy then have my old habits if drinking while eating... No wonder I was able to eat so much before... I could drink 2 glasses of tea and not even be done with my food. Crazy!

I'm also a revision from band to sleeve. What a different experience, right?

Yes what a difference! It just feels good to be able to keep things down and not feel like I am dying! Already lost more weight with the sleeve than I did with the band. I just feel way more comfortable and healthy.

I spent 5 days in the hospital due to complications. My new surgeon and his staff are WONDERFUL!!! My band had attached itself to my liver and the port was deeply woven into my stomach muscles. I am still experiencing some minor pain in that area but overall I am loving my decision!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥

my dr told me I could drink with my food. He said it doesnt matter. But he also said you have to be careful because you only have so much room and Water will come back out if you drink too much after eating. That has happened to me not fun

Drinking can also cause the food you eat to swell and cause pain and possibly a leak in the early stages. That is what my Dr. said. I did it once and never again. OUCHIE!

Hey all...sleeved on august 22. Lost 45 so far.

I am soo worried about stretching my stomach though. Now that I feel better I can pretty much eat anything. Some days I worry cause I've eaten more than I could during recovery. I listen to my body and eat when hungry and stop when I dont. I haven't dietedb at all figuring I can't diet and have the sleeve. Should I be concerned or am I being silly. Some days I can eat more others I cant. I just had a cup of Soup with meat in it and feel guilty bit maybe I shouldnt. I just don t want this to fail since it seems to be working. So scared of stretching it out.

I went to my OBGYN and she said that I have keytones in my urine from lack of carbs. I thought I wasn't suppose to have carbs? There are low carbs on Water and Protein. <img src='http://www.bariatricpal.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> Anyone else have this come up?

Yep then I ended up with a kidney stone... I eat some carbs now like oatmeal for Breakfast I don't get a whole lot in since its very filling but it's complex carbs so its not bad. Or I'll have quinoa or Beans or lentils. I try to eat the healthy carb choices, just not a ton of it... Not that I could. But I've noticed it does help. They have strips you can test your urine with and know if there are keytones in your urine.

ReliOn is the brand they have them at any drugstore or pharmacy.

Hi all! I had my gastric sleeve done on August 26th to be exact! I'm having a really hard time getting Protein down. I take my Vitamins and stuff like I'm suppose to but, getting that protein down is not working for me. Lord knows I do not want to lose my hair but if some of you guys could give me some tips that would be awesome. :)

      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.
