8 WEEKS post OP.

Great job! I struggle with Fluid as well. I get about 36 oz. Less than the 48 I was told to get.

It's such a chore to eat and get fluid!

Yes it is a chore and struggle you had surgery 3 days before me. I’ve set alarms to remind me to eat but sometimes it works . If I’m not hungry I cannot force myself to eat. Good luck It might take some time to get a routine

Wow you're looking great, what a transformation already 😁😁

I found (and still do) Water really hard to drink, even though before surgery I was a big water drinker (only thing I drank apart from coffee). These days it just 'bounces back up'! What I've found works is adding some low calorie lemon and barley, or orange and barley cordial to my water, i make it really weak and it does the trick. Really important as I train a fair bit. I'm going to keep persevering with water as I don't want to keep having artificial sweeteners.

I've been adding Crystal Light to my Water and I've been getting in my 64 oz/day

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
