Hello and good morning everyone

I just need to vent a little !!! Today is three weeks since my VSG and boy do I feel great. I’m transitioning to my normal before surgery daily life. I’m so frustrated ! This weight isn’t budging as fast as I’d like it to omg! I know it’s not a sprint but a marathon but I’m just so frustrated. I see here many people were givin a set amount of calories/carbs to take in per date I wasn’t. After my one week follow up my doc said you look great see you in three months! I get my Protein in (about 40grams not quite the 60) and I intake at least 40oz . Of Water per day, add in the G2 and liquids to food maybe 50oz of liquid per day. I was wondering if anyone has PCOS and could this be the reason for my slow slow slow weight loss. It seems before surgery I was dropping the weight like nothing but after the surgery it’s really hard. I barley eat anything solid because I just throw it back up so I rely on my Protein Shakes which fill me up. I can stomach eggs so I’ve been having 1 boiled egg (just the whites I have never done the yellows) every other day I just don’t know and I’m so frustrated ☹️

Starting weight 260

surgery weight 228

current weight 217

goal. 150-160

Hey I too have pcos and it’s very tough to loose weight but you have done amazing to loose 11 lbs in 3 weeks! When I get down about my weight loss not being quick enough I just think to myself when have I ever lost near to the amount I’m loosing now. The answer is Iv never managed more than 2 lb a week on any previous diet so my 10 lbs 2 weeks post op is amazing in reality.

Bad news guys !!

I expressed my concern to my doctor and he wants me back on my all liquid diet. More stomach meds and more nausea medication for me yay 🙄

it sucks anything solid I eat I just bring right back up and then I’m nauseous and throwing up anything that goes in after that!

I spoke too soon ! I threw those sausages up as soon as I ate them! It looks/feels like I’ll never be able to eat again!

I completely agree with you; I think I just watched too much TLC and expected to loose like 50lbs in a month😂 but speaking to my dr and everyone here I know I’m doing just fine ! It sucks because I have to go back on to my full liquid diet so I feel like I’m going backwards instead of forwards

I had the same slow weight loss. I was told my body is going through shock at about 3-4 weeks and has to reset itself.

Don’t count out the sausages just yet. Sometimes you can retry things later down the line. It was that way with lettuce for me. You might just have to take baby steps from here on out.

      Hate thinking about foods I used to love... Burgers & wings. Gotta stay focused. 😤

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
