Hi there surgery twin! :) I'm doing great. I'm on the soft foods phase now..have been for a little over a week. Baked and grilled boneless skinless chicken breast is getting kinda old but sure beats puree any day! How are you doing?

Im doing good. Not eating much but craving a lot of things. The premier Protein helps me just to get something in. Are you on full exercise mode? I know this surgery is my life change but I still have not energy. I need to start!!! I have lost 19.5lbs I know we are all different but would like to hear from you!!! Please!!!!

I'm so glad you're doing well! I know it is very hard. I have been craving cold stuff so have been eating a ton of sugar free popsicles. I eat them all day long but stop half an hour before I eat of course. I honestly do not have any energy either. I stay really sleepy and I think that is pretty normal. I was walking the first couple of weeks afterward but now I haven't been and I have got to start back walking and doing other exercises as well. At my one month follow up I had lost 21 pounds. It's gonna be alright. We just gotta keep moving forward. :)

Thank you for responding!!! Well I guess we are for real twins???? we have lost about the same amount of lbs. I'm still on my 19.5 lbs lost and it's almost 6weeks???? however, today Sunday I had a date with my treadmill. I did 30 min and burned 310 calories. I figured something is better than nothing and I really needed to start somewhere. I get disappointed when I don't see the scale moving, it's always been so hard for me to lose weight and now I've confirmed it, I have the sleeve and it's still hard.

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
