3/28 sleever, so 9 days out. Have lost 20 since surgery, and about 20 pre-op. Things have gone great for me, my only issue is that I am not sleeping well and I even dream about eating after finishing this full liquid phase in 4 days. I have been planning my menus and shopping list for the pureed phase and frankly they sound like gourmet foods by comparison to liquids. I can't wait.

Was sleeved 3/26 at 357.6, lost 15 pounds the first week and nothing since. Kinda weird but it is what it is. Not trying to stress on something that’s completely out of my control. Should start my period tomorrow so am probably holding on to some Water as well. I see my doc for my post op check in on Monday but have already started a few soft foods. So good!

All is well with me on soft foods and that’s only 2 to 3 baby spoons and I trying to get Water in as well as Protein Powder but seems like March sleeves are doing okay. I guess patience is the key if you were like me I did everything fast .. eat , talk etc just life moving fast so to say take sip or sips I am learning.. I lost almost 50 pds prior to my surgery date which was 3-22 starting at 283 at 1 wk after I weigh 220 .. probably have lost more now but it will come off the weight and good luck and we are in this together so please do well as you can

3/14 surgery- not sure how much I’ve lost. My next pre-op appointment is on the 16th. I’m trying to only weigh every few weeks. I don’t want to have to think about stalls. I’m getting between 500-800 calories a day, Protein, Vitamins and most of my Water. If I’m not losing weight then it just isn’t in the cards for me. At this point I’ve going through extreme measures to be healthy and I don’t want to obsess about my weight anymore. I know I am and will continue to lose, period.

My surgery was 2 days before you. I’ve been on puree since day one and started eating soft foods a week ago. 700-900 calories per day. I’m having no problem with food and getting plenty of liquids. I plan on starting the gym next week.

I started back with aqua aerobics a couple of weeks ago. Looking at joining a gym for weights and cardio in a few weeks.

Your current weight is my goal :)

So when you say soft foods instead of purée what are you eating and how much




I found some little 4oz to-go cups on Amazon and filled them with layered ground beef, marinara sauce, ricotta and mozzarella. I take them for lunch at work. Each is about 120 cal. One doesn’t fill me up, though. I’ll have one then another 2 hrs later for lunch.

I’ve also been eating out WAY more than I’d like to be. Work conference this week, travel and being social with friends. I’ll eat a few bites of sautéed brussel sprouts, quinoa, beef stew, mashed potatoes, salmon and spaghetti squash. None of it has bothered me. I’m a little nervous because I don’t know nutritional content or how much I eat but I really can’t eat much before I feel full and I feel like I’m making healthy choices. Avoiding breads.

I'm over a month out now and finding that there is lots of work travel and eating out too. It's not always easy to make the best choices, but I am finding that my eating habits have changed hugely since before having the sleeve. Both the quality and quantity of what I'm eating are so different now and it's hard to believe I used to eat so much previously.

I'm also avoiding bread generally as it feels like I just cannot digest it and it just sits in my stomach.

Thanks for the information I was wondering did it get better eating and the layered ground beef sounds so good. You seem to be on the right track even with your work schedule. I have 4 weeks of paid @ 100% and I am taking that time off let’s keep in touch and keep up the GREAT work..
