Hi October Sleevers!

I'm almost 4.5 months in, and so far so good! I am down around 110lbs and it's been smooth sailing so far. I've been eating a variety of food and doing a "reasonable" job at keeping up my fluids.

A few days ago everything seemed to change... All of a sudden I have zero appetite, and when I do try and eat something (because I am keeping in mind that I need to fuel my body) it just sits VERY heavy and I get stomach cramps for the next couple of hours.

This means for the last 3 days I have literally only eaten a few spoonfuls of food - after that I get stomach cramps for 2 hours then I feel fine again. I am not hungry and don't have any other complaints... But I am worried that suddenly I am not eating anything, and my attempts to eat are not going well.

Has anyone experienced this? I searched the forums and the only other posts I could find about loss of appetite were from people immediately pre or post surgery. Or some others had it 3 months in but it was related to integestion and stomach acid issues... I don't believe that's what I am experiencing as I feel fine, just not hungry at all.

Previous to the last few days I had a good appetite and was eating (and enjoying) three meals per day.

Added: I am still able to drink fluids without any problems, so I am keeping my fluids up - I wish I could eat something though just so ensure I am getting some nutrients in.

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

What about Protein Shakes? They are the only thing I could think of. Powerade zero, sugar free Vitamin Water, sugar free propel. Jello. Sorry I dont have many answers. Oh and if you are drinking sugar free, check the label. I cant do crystal light, (they use sweet n low). Makes me soooo sick. I use 4C, they use splenda.

I was 261 on October 31st, 2017 and today March 3, 2018, I am 212 pounds! My antidepressants are being adjusted and that aspect has been hellish. Crying myself to sleep some nights, now I'm coming out hopefully. I workout as I can somedays it is hard to get my butt out of bed. I get in gym time 3 days a week of about an hour, learning to give myself grace while at the same time holding myself accountable. I sleep so much better without that 50 pounds on my chest and body, more then just looks (I do look better) is I'm able to move more quickly as I workout, and I'm not yawning after I leave the gym like I used to. So it's worth the mental battle as my body is like a leveler bubble all over the place right now, it'll find the center soon enough. Pray for me regarding my ongoing depression please for those that do pray. Thanks.

I have lost 41 lbs since being sleeved 10/13/17. I feel like the loss rate has been sooooo slow and had to overcome a few stalls. I have 25 lbs still to lose to hit my ultimate goal weight. But I have 7 months to lose that weight to make my goal.

I did a face transformation comparison the other day for myself. Needed to see the change to remind myself that even though I feel like the loss is slow, there is still loss.
