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.

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
