Me too. I am in week 3 and after losing 20lb in the first 2 weeks, now the scales aren't shifting. I really don't understand this. I am trying to keep my Protein up, and am continuing on a mostly liquid diet. My surgeons office provided me with all the puree meals for week 3 and 4, but I can't stomach them. So I am not eating much at all, but not losing! It doesn't make sense to me...

Hang in there! My surgeon reminded me at my 3 week postop appointment that it won't always be a straight bee-line down on the scale. Told me it was fine to weigh myself as long as it's not anxiety inducing. Are there other things you can eat, other than what the surgeon provided? Dannon light and fit yogurt has been one of my go-tos. And I mixed some low-fat ricotta with splenda (or stevia), vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg -- that's gone down quite well. I remember one of my leaders from weight watchers reminding those who weren't eating all their points and not losing - you do have to eat to lose weight. Your body will tell you. Good luck!

I did get one for my regular meds post surgery. Just really hate the taste of crushed pills. I figure since I have options and my need for Calcium will never go away, I'll just keep the tablets on hold for right now. But thanks!

Just mix it in a bite of food like yogurt or something.

I couldn't stand the crushed pills. I'd rather not taking anything than to crush the pill. My doctor said as long as I could stand it he was okay with me taking the pills whole. I just break it in half and take it with pudding and its all good.

January 1, 2018 for me. Down 27.40 lbs so far. Stalling since I started eating soft foods. No complications so far - thank goodness. I read so many horror stories I almost chickened out.

That is amazing progress! I was sleeved 1/24. I think a lot of us could drive ourselves batty looking for worst-case scenarios. I've progressed fine, even had a glass of wine once (!!!! with Water and internally soooo careful the whole time for no ill effect), and have been able to not suffer any calamity with my program. I'm almost to "any healthy foods" stage (in a week or two) and I was like you, afraid to move to each stage thinking I would have adverse reactions or stalls. Now I have internalized the cardinal rules of my program (no fluids 30 min before or after; eat until satisfied; take my time; make healthy protein-y-est choices) and am ready / adjusted to my new normal.

Hello all January gastric sleevers. I had my surgery 1/31/18. I have had no pain other than feeling stitches in my incisions. No nausea nothing. Am currently on pureed still but have eaten a scrambled with no problem. it took awhile to eat it all but still no issues. My only trouble has been an ongoing gout flare. Taking uloric daily as well as cherry extract. Stupid gout makes it rough to get out and walk. Have had no trouble getting liquids and Protein daily.
