Can't sleep anymore..



Recommended Posts

I am about to be one month post op and just started sleeping on my sides, stomach, etc.. but now I cannot sleep anymore. Before when I was sleeping on my back, I hated it but I would stay asleep. Now I am tossing and turning all night...anyone recommend anything?

As the weight fell off after surgery, the fat that normally provided a cushion between my legs began to disappear. Therefore I had knee bone rubbing against knee bone and this was uncomfortable. I found that slipping a pillow between my legs at night helped.

sleeping was something I had to get used to because of becoming boney. You'll eventually find what works. Like above I sleep with lots of pillows that I can use between legs

I have trouble sleeping because I have sooooo much energy now and I guess I don't have all the carbs dragging me down.

Hello everyone, I got sleeved on 8/5. Exactly 3 weeks ago. I have recovered so quickly, it is almost ridiculous. I have been able to eat everything. I switched to regular solid  food (which I chew really well) within 4 days after surgery. I love the sensation of getting full and leaving food on my plate. This had never happened before in my entire life! It is so empowering and liberating...

But I can't sleep at night despite keeping active during the day--I go for long walks or cycle in the afternoons. I go to bed around 9:30 PM or 10:00 PM but I am up until 3-4 AM, tossing and turning. My insomnia also leads to late night eating. I have eaten nuts and yogurt, feeling very guilty. As a result my weight loss has slowed down. I have only lost 10 lb in the 3 weeks since my surgery (I'm 5.8" and weighed 258.5 on day of surgery. BMI 38).

I'd love to know if any of you have been able to successfully tackle insomnia?

Much thanks!

Getting up earlier has helped me. I used to get up around 6:00 and now it is aground 5:00. By the time I get home and do my evening routine, I am exhausted. sleep around 9:30/10:00 sleep pulls me to the pillow.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
