My problem with calories that fall out is that they usually land on my hips or ass.

Ya gotta eat BOOBS out so they land there instead. :D

Omg, is THAT how it works?!! Sh*t!

I'm going to have an absolutely killer rack by the end of the summer...

Damn ladies.... I was looking for a reduction there too. Unfortunately the weight loss hasn't hit the rack yet. That said, I'll happily donate some of that to anyone interested!

While I'm not disinterested in the whole boobage thing, if I'm honest, I'd have to say I'm more of an arseage man...

I still appreciate the offer tho..

I will admit that I only read the first two pages of this topic. I will share my own experience with diet sodas. I weigh approximately 320 pounds and I will be getting the sleeve done at the end of August. The last 30 pounds are the result of me going off of diet soda. I was having multiple strange medical issues including vertigo and memory issues. Was also having some breathing issues that I couldn't attribute anything. I went down to Southern California to visit my grandmother in the hospital and while I was down there all of my issues one away. When I got back home to work and everything came back. I knew that my problems could not have been cleared up by the lovely Southern California air. I started looking what changed when I went down there. I am a cheap bastard I mean Frugal man. At home I was drinking 2 44 ounce diet dr. Pepper a day and sometimes drinking 3. The cost on my fountain drink version of that dr. Pepper was $0.89 a pop. When I went to California all I could find it in was 1 liter soda bottles at 2 bucks a piece. My cheap bastard side, uh I mean frugal side, said hell no to that. Instead I was drinking Water. When I realized what was going on I went completely off of the diet dr. Pepper and went to straight water. For about 2 weeks I was doing great and feeling awesome. Most of my symptoms have gone away however I started gaining weight after 2 weeks. At week 6 I had gained 25 pounds! I went to my doctor to find out what the hell was wrong with me. He asked me a strange question, do you like coffee? No. Do you like tea? No. Why? He responded with your metabolism has slowed down because of the lack of caffeine. His suggestion pick up a caffeine habit that is healthier! So I changed up my habits. Very rarely do I drink a soda with the exception of a Henry weinhard root beer when I BBQ or a Mountain Dew when I have Mexican food. 99% of the time I drink iced tea without the ice (because I hate it when it melts) and lemonade. My ratio is 6 parts tea to 1 part lemonade. I know that I have to change my evil lemonade ways so I just bought some of those single packs of Crystal Light Lemonade and I plan to dump that into my tea. Hopefully that will be a reasonable substitute for the lightly sweet drink that I always seem to crave.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
