I left out that I am doing the sleeve. I have another weigh in Dec 1 where I must have lost 6 more pounds, then I start my 2 week liquid diet where I must lose at least 10 more. A bit nervous given that I am already pretty much existing on Protein bars and shakes with rather slow weight loss. That said, I'm very excited!

Oh wow. My next appointment is on 12/14 and I also have my PreOp for the hospital that day as well. I havent had weight loss requirements set but I have been incorporating a Protein shake at Breakfast and 2 high Protein meals. I am trying to eliminate snacking and the drinking after I eat I tend to get dry mouth while eating but they say i need to chew longer to build more saliva.... its hard work but I know in the end it will be worth it! Good luck on your appointment!

That must be the wonderful not to have to stress about it every day. I started at 376 and am at 335 now. I never used to but now I hate the scale and food is the enemy at this point. Whatever is lost is never enough. But it's all for the best. I have made immense changes if only I could get my body to cooperate on my surgeon's schedule. I have pre admission testing on the 12th and another weigh in the 16th to make sure I've met my weight loss during the two week liquid diet of 4 slim fast a day.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
