My Surgery Date was April 23 so exactly 1 month ago today. For Vitamins they recommended 1x each day and evening Flintstone complete chewables until I see the surgeon June 5th . How are things going so far ??

My advice so far, follow exactly what they tell you and give thing time give your body time to adjust, each of us is different and although time may tell you that you should be at a certain place in the process you body may not be ready. I should be on fork tender Protein starting this week, but I am still on ground texture/soft food. So although its frustrating I am just giving my body the time it needs to do what it needs to get healthy.

Best of luck on your journey. :)

I had my sleeve on 4/16/18. My start weight was 270. I am down 20 pounds so far with 2 stalls lasting a week n a half long. Everyone is different. Take ur time and I'm learning to be patient. The weight will fall off. Try increasing liquid intake such as Water and protein...that's what I do once I hit a stall. I was hoping for better results by this time, but I'm ok...my body went through a drastic change and has to catch up. The doctor seems to think I'm doing well so I'm not worried.

I was sleeved on 4/27, I am in a vicious stall. Only 25 pounds so far and most of that was in the first two weeks. I am guessing it is because I am still under 600 calories, but I am still on two Protein Drinks a day and 3 oz of soft Protein so there is no way really to increase calories yet. Just has to wait it out, but it is hard to go through all of this and not see the results.

I hit my first stall basically at my 1 week post op. The needle really didn’t move again (except for the same lb) until just shy of my 4 week when I dropped 4 all at once. At this point I’m actually still eating mostly soft foods but have started branching out to “real” foods.

I’ve also stopped weighing myself daily. While I’m not exactly on the same day I’m trying to limit myself to every few days as I’m needing some sort of feedback as I figure this out.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
