Sleeved 12-3-13 and I struggle with this all the time. I have found that warm/hot liquids go down better. I cannot do icy cold Water or any extremely cold liquid. I do a lot of Soups and I buy bullion cubes. I luv luv chicken broth as crazy as it sounds. But liquids r liquids and any way u get them down is a good thing. I also do sugar free Hawaiian punch packets. They have tons of flavors to choose from, cheap at Walmart. Also, sugar free hot cocoa is great especially when your cold, Swiss Miss is only 25 cal and very good. I hope some of these suggestions help, good luck !

sugar free ice pops count towards your liquids, Protein drinks count towards your liquids. I couldn't drink plain Water for a couple of months so I diluted apple juice. Although there are carbs and sugar in apple juice I figured it wasn't enough to worry about if it meant I got my liquids in. Try different drinks at different temperatures. My first week or two post op I actually watched the clock on the cable box when I was watching TV and took a sip every 5 minutes, then the next day sipped every 4 minutes, next day every 3 minutes. It's tedious but it works.

It will get much easier in the coming days as internal swelling goes down letting you take slightly larger sips.

It took me a few weeks to hit fluid goals. You're normal. It's very frustrating but very normal.

Hot herbal tea has been my lifesaver! Tazo makes one called vanilla Rooibos Parfait that is apple/cinnamon/vanilla and it is SO good. I put t spoonful of almond milk and a couple drops of stevia. 2-3 cups a day helps with the liquid requirements.

Me too! I drank herbal Decaf tea almost every night the first month. Now I make 20 ounces and pour it over ice. Lifesaver!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
