5 weeks post op tomorrow and down 25 lbs. I will be eating lunch out with a friend of mine this week. No one knows I had the sleeve but my sister. I am worried about what to eat and will it seem weird to my friend if I eat so little?

I have looked at the menu so I do have an idea of what they serve. Any advice?

I would say Soup or a braised meat. Something soft and easily digested.

This was an issue a lot for me in the beginning because I frequently went to work dinners. Soup and stews really saved me, since no one can really tell how much soup you actually eat. I'm not sure if you're allowed salad yet, but that's always really good because you can pick on it all night and no one can tell how much you've actually eaten.

I agree with Soup, I had to do work travel 3 weeks post op and I ate a lot of soup since no one from work knows I had surgery.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
