Recommended Posts

I feel your pain @@Veronica Page! Im on day 4 and it hasn't gotten any easier. My mind is settled on what Im doing but food still SMELLS AND LOOKS amazing!

I just keep thinking about a year from now, being at goal ( I hope!) and enjoying my new body and life! I look at my baby girl and know I have a million reasons to succeed at this!

Well today wasn't so bad but I did manage to keep busy and I have my husband sharing the cooking duties with me. I think I just need to do as much possible to keep mental occupied not just physically. I just can't wait to go and have the surgery so i'm not HUNGRY! and feel full. The problem is that my stomach is still in the larger range of food intake and can tell that I haven't eaten much. So it will be a huge relief to know that if I eat and it is not a large amount it will be enough for me to feel full and satisfied for a longer period of time.

I'm at the end of day 3 of my pre op diet & (for now anyway) I feel like I'm over the head hunger part. What kills me is feeling all that liquid sloshing around in my empty tummy, lol.????

I am a band to sleeve revision and just received my surgery date of January 29th. I have already adopted the pre-op diet because I was sick and tired of being run down all the time. I already feel 100% better...I can't imagine what the next few months will bring. I am scared of the added risk that comes with a band to VSG revision but I am placing my faith in Dr. Schroder (Richmond, VA) who is renowned for the revision surgery in this area. Good luck to everyone as the journey begins!!!!

@@Jlkhollins Welcome to being a January Sleever and try to be scared. It is scary of course but focusing on that just is going to stress you out and who needs that right. Glad you have the mind set to start your eating early cause it is just not an easy one but of course things get easier as time goes on and I'm sending you the best of luck on your new journey from band to sleeve!

Woohoo! Survived the holidays on the pre-op liquid diet. Last night was especially hard. I caught myself attempting to bargain plenty of times and still overcame. One more week!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
