End of week one. First few days behind on fluids and Protein but have hit goal last 3 days. Jumped on scale this morning and down 12lbs. SW was 261. So far so good. Only downside is another week of liquids to go.

Great job! Week one is TOUGH! I have one more day of liquids and I can finally get some soft foods. You'll get through the second week. I thought I couldn't and then I was like why did I do this?! It's still hard but it gets a little easier so you got this!

If you get tired of Protein Shakes, switch to another brand because their flavor would be a little different. I had Unjury and I was losing my mind. I was so done with the taste so I got Isopure which has 40g Protein in one bottle and so many flavors! Also, GNC lean 25 is great too.

Hi all. I’m wondering if anyone else is experiencing a “filmy” feeling and taste in your mouth. I’m getting my Water in, but I wake up every morning with a sweet (and not in a good way) coated feeling in my mouth. There have been times throughout the day that I get the same sensation. Kind of icky....

I haven’t experienced this...could it be any Vitamins you’re taking?

Maybe... I hadn’t thought of the Vitamins. I’m taking so many... Maybe I’ll go find sample bottles of mouthwash to see if I can find one that helps.

So back in Jan with my WI with the dr I was 297. I’m at 258 right now. Lowest was 257. I dropped 15 lbs before my surgery on March 11th, and now another 24/25. (Depending on what day). How is everyone else doing?

Hey Barb I have the same issue with waking up with a dry mouth. I leave Water by my bed but I think I just need to increase my intake. It could also be some of the medication but I’m not sure.

When I started about 6 months ago, I was 277 (highest 285). Morning of surgery (also 3/11) I was 248.8. Today I'm 229, almost 20 down. Feeling good. Wish it were going a little faster. But slow and steady.

Congrats to all the Marcher’s on your losses! I am 4.5 weeks post op, but haven’t weighed since my follow up April 9th. I was about 22 lbs down then. I’m back in the gym and back running again, so definitely feeling great!

I been walking at least 6 miles a day every day hoping it will help speed along progress 😊 my next goal is to run a little and start with light weights since the doctor moved me from 15 lbs restriction to 30 lbs! Whoo hoo! We got this!

Oh also, I do get the filmy mouth feeling as well, but I’ve been blaming it on the Protein Powder from the Protein drinks.

      Did you go through with the DS? How are you making out?

      Well, long time no see. 
      It's been a rough couple of weeks. I should have been expecting the other shoe to drop after having it so easy for the first three weeks post op. I was getting my water and protein easily, had no pain, nausea, or vomiting.
      But as soon as the soft foods really started in earnest I started having problems. Pain, foamies, slimeys, vomiting galore. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it. Something that I ate easily yesterday causes pain and vomiting after the first bite today. Sometimes it's my pills, other times they go down easy. I just don't get it. 
      I'm trying to stay positive. I know this is a season in my life, and things will eventually even out. I'm just so tired of being afraid to eat, not knowing what kind of response my body will have. I'm mostly hitting my protein target, thanks in large part to protein shakes (which I hate, but look at as medicine). I missed my water targets by a lot over the weekend, due mostly to feeling awful, which I know is a terrible cycle... throw up, don't feel like drinking anything, get dehydrated, get constipated, feel like crap, repeat. 
      The three-week stall is also still here. I thought I had busted through it, but I've been bouncing between 216-219 for the last two and a half weeks, which is a contributing factor to my mood and frustration level. And add in wee-lings who are going crazy with end of the school year insanity, friends with busy schedules who I haven't been able to see in weeks, and I'm an unhappy girl. 
      Things will turn around. I know they will. Just not feeling it at this moment.

        Hey @MrsGamgee, I've missed you :1007_hearts:, welcome back (of sorts)!

        Sorry to hear you are feeling blue. You've got the right thought processes to get through this phase, but yeah, it's still tough. Hang in there, though!

        Have you gone to see your surgeon or checked in with your PCP lately?

      2. MrsGamgee

        Thanks @ms.sss. I saw my RD last week (at the bariatric clinic), and told her everything that's been going on. She said that it was within the range of normal (some people are just lucky like me... lol), and that because it isn't consistent, even though it's happening often, she's not terribly concerned. I need to slow down when I'm eating, and to chew even more than I already am. If she saw how little water I drank over the weekend she'd likely be a little concerned but I have really refocused on that, and am already 2/3 of the way to today's goal at noon. I don't have another appointment on the books now until August, but if things don't start to show some improvement by Thursday morning (my 6-week mark), I'm calling my nurse.

      3. ms.sss

        hope things get better with the slowing down and the water-prioritizing. keep us posted :1007_hearts:

        small tip: I used the timer on my watch religiously between bites in the early days (actually I still do, but I'm a lot less rigid about it now), it really helped keep the foamies/slimies/pain/barfing at bay by helping me slow down.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.
