I have a question. Has anyone noticed that their sense of smell and taste is different? I feel like I am hypersensitive and smells make me nauseous Also some foods do not taste the same to me at all. I am still having some trouble eating solids and they can come back up on me so it is really trial and error. My preop weight was 217 the day of my surgery 8/30 I was 207 and today I am 180. I really like the lack of hunger but I do not enjoy food at all and also still have bad reflux despite the hiatal hernia repair? Any help or comments would be appreciated.

Yes my sense of smell is off the chain right now and everything makes me nauseous. I don't know what's that about but it is driving me crazy.

Its so great I checked this out. Its exactly 8 weeks since my surgery. I was 357 day of. I forget my weight at the one month mark but can day tod ay 8 weeks later I'm 317 so a loss of 40. I was getting so frustrated because I think I lost 30 first month and only 10 this month but it sounds like we are all in the same boat. What I do know is I've gone down through 3 different goal pants and clothes are fitting much better. Also I loved Water and hate it now unless its ice cold....odd...and I now can smell an onion a mile away.

Ive been bad with Protein I don't keep track and don't drink my drinks....but then I try to eat high proetin foods.

So frustrated I haven't lost more my second month but then again happy I haven't gained! !

Same here with the water. It needs to be ice cold for me too. ????

I have a silly question. Does Soup count as liquid or food. It's not solid food so its essentially not going To fill me up. I made Portuguese soup and it's basically puréed potatoes with Water and collard greens. Nothing really solid

I would call it liquid. No real Protein either. I would put some Unflavord Protein Powder in a bowl and see how it goes.

The concerns I have (and this is for me, personally) would be the carbs from the potatoes & the lack of protein.....I don't eat a lot of carbs.....like SeaGirl, I'd put in some unflavored Protein powder.....since it has some solids in it, not sure if I'd count it 100% as a liquid....but that's a good question....on the full liquids phase, we counted the creamed Soups as liquid, right?

I am 8 weeks out now I haven't lost a tremendous amount of weight in pounds but I can definitely be a size change. I'm at least two sizes down. As far as tastes and smells go, I get sick at certain smells and certain things I cannot eat. Beef themes to be a problem with me. I've been sticking to Protein Bars to get all my Protein in I haven't tried salads yet. I'm a little hesitant to add a variety of new foods in just yet.

I'm sure you are doing it right. Everyone is different. I too can eat anything but extremely small amounts. I do find the weeks I don't lose as much are the weeks I go carb crazy. Just keep going...you will eventually move down the scale again. Good luck!

Some days are great, some are more of a challenge as I adjust to being sleeved. Overall, I have been able to eat everything, but not much of anything. I have great energy and am happier about everything in life than I have been in years. Tuesday, I had a headache, craved BarBQue as I drove up I-35 in TX (every billboard was for BarBQue or Jerky), and my head hunger was nuts. Weds I was back to being satisfied and grateful, not nutty. Goes to show that takin it one day at a time can really help.

Tonight I walked with my hubbie and I wasn't winded or sore! Down 45-50 lbs since end of June. Makes moving the bod much easier. Loving my sleeve!

Hello sleeved August 18,2013. I am down 45 lbs. I have set two goals, my first is going from 245 surgery weight to 200 lbs current weight , This took me 2 1/2 months. My next goal is to reach 150-160. Depending on how I feel and look. My health issues prior to surgery is gone. I feel wonderful I have gone down 2 pants sizes and 3 dress sizes. This journey is not a quick fix in my book. It took years to get to where surgery was my only option to becoming healthy again. So one day at a time and slow and steady for me. I am eating very small meals. More Water is key This journey is something that I would consider all over again Hope all of you sleevers know how great this experience is and hearing all if you stories is outstanding keep up the great work. Till next time

Day if surgery 245

2 1/2 months later 200

Checking in on my fellow August sleevers. Running into the frustration of being finished before anyone else at the table. Still can only eat about 6 or 7 bites. Working on slowing down each and every time. Think i am down to nearly two minutes a bite lol. Love, love, love my new stomach. It is doing it's job by getting me full with just a little bit. Upped my Protein intake because I have more hair strands in my brush and comb. Have become great friends with cottage cheese, as too many Protein Drinks in a day become tiresome. So far I have lost 44.8 lbs...sleeved 8/29/13. Hope everyone else is feeling better since we are a little further out from our surgery month. Good luck to all.

      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.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      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.
