Doing good. 10 weeks post op as well. Down 60lbs but in a stall for the last week and a half. Started a size 26 and almost cried when I got into a size 18 jeans today and an XL top!!! Had to buy a few things! How much protien is everyone getting in a day? What did your Dr recommend for calories a day at this point?

Gall Bladder removal surgery tomorrow...feeling great otherwise.

Anyone else have issues with GB after surgery? (my Sleeve surgery was 1 Jun 17)

Completely normal ... I had previously lost 100lbs on Weight Watchers and needed my gallbladder out ... when you lose a significant amount of weight in a short time it screws up the GB ... good lucky with surgery!

Having a bad week - lots of stress. Things beyond my control. My daughter is suffering from depression and anxiety and it came to a head yesterday. Realizing how much I have used food as a way to deal with stress. Yesterday was the worst- I didn't do too bad in calories but did eat half a piece of costco pizza otherwise not bad at all once I looked back on it , but the pizza made me feel gross and today I'm up about a half a pound - and have an awful headache--probably sodium and or blood pressure. I should have worked out the stress in the gym. I just never seem to have time or I never make the time is probably more true.
Just needed to vent a min on here. Please say a prayer if you could.

I'm 12 weeks out and down 38 lbs so that is a positive.

To Mich W (my twin in Sleeveland): I know just what you are talking about. When life is out of "control" I want something direct to change the way I feel for a while. We are practically hardwired by experience to distract ourselves with sensation--flavor and fullness--from awareness of the present reality. At least I am. It's so easy. The downsides are so (relatively) remote. BUT. You have done very very well and that can't be undone by 1/2 slice of pizza or a cookie. It's such an odd quirk of our minds that we focus so much on our failures and our successes can just whoosh by unnoticed.

I am sorry that family troubles are weighing down your spirit right now. Take care of yourself and remember that God doesn't make mistakes.

Thank you so much! I agree with you whole heartedly! I just get so frustrated with my self sabotage! I tend to be super positive but when I feel so bombarded with everything I can just lose it!
Tonight was a good one though- my other daughter needed to go to a mall in in Denver so I took her and her friends and rather than shop in the mall I went over to Marshalls for a bit--- I tried on some size 14 pants- they all fit. I thought- I'll try on some 12's for the heck of it- they all fit too! I was going to buy 2 pair but I thought, maybe I should check out the 10's- OMG! They fit! I haven't been a 10 since I was 29 years old!!! Over 20 years ago! I keep thinking- it has to just be that they run big! Can't believe that I really fit into a 10! So- I'm feeling a little better- still worried for my baby. But I know I haven't blown my diet all to pieces.
Thanks for the encouragement !

My dr has me on 3 months of gullbladder meds post op. Did anyone else get those to avoid the removal? No stones or problems before it's just preventative.




What is the med? I tried something made of bear bile orso or something like that and it made me so sick- mine was after I had my gall bladder out because I kept getting stones in my liver that would get stuck in my bile ducts.

Need to hit reset! Because of all of the stress lately I'm falling back into bad habits. Today I will:
Drink plenty of water! 48oz+
Eat plenty of protein! 60 g +
Avoid carbs! I'm still losing but I'm not being as deliberate as I should. I haven't been planning meals and have been grazing. I am so afraid I'll fall back into bad patterns and won't attain my goal.

Hello! I was sleeved June 1, 2017 & I feel and look great[emoji6] my only regret is I should've done it sooner. My surgery was easy only pain was the gas monster🙄 & my hair started shedding @ month 2, but I've been able to treat it so it's getting better. Congrats to all the June VSG friends[emoji7] 20170916_114416.thumb.jpg.b47a40cded5ac684dfb6b803fdad8ee1.jpg

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
