Anyone else struggle with not being allowed to drink anything with meals? I’m only 2 weeks post op today but sometimes, I just need a sip of Water during my meal. I find it very difficult. Anyway, just wondered.

Yes, that part is hard for me. I have occasionally taken a sip but now that I am eating solid foods it is not a good idea....so I just wait it out.

@EspeciallyKK

don't feel alone - i think this is one of the most common problems many of us deal/dealt with

we all have to accept and learn to handle the situation. Don't have to like it/ but its one of the

BIG rules that must be followed. Very important!!

good luck

Perhaps its habit or your foods are too dry for you. Keep working at it. You can do it 👑

Yes! Sometimes after I eat I just need to get the taste of the food out of my mouth so I will take a small sip and swish it around.

Servers just look at me funny when I don’t want anything to drink. I just Ask for Water to make them feel better.

Ya it’s def a dry food issue sometimes. But also, the amount of chewing we have to do grosses me out. I know that’s dumb, lol. But I just need a sip! Lol.

You will get used to it eventually, but it is definitely unnatural.

‘I agree with the above, I always make sure I order or cook something that will be moist if possible. If absolutely necessary I do take a tiny sip if I’m done eating. I also rinse my mouth or brush my teeth after eating which can help.

Don't underestimate how much of it is habit/mental. I originally could never conceive of not drinking with meals, but it's normal for me now. Make sure you drink in your window before your meal so you're not actually thirsty.

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
