60 days? Wow. Ok so move move move . Got it!! Thank you 😊 When does swallowing liquid get easier? I don’t like the way it feels when Water hits my stomach. Although I’m a week Post Op, I can’t help but think If water (even when warm) feels this way going down, how am I suppose to tolerate thicker liquid?

I’m 12 days post op and I’ve only lost 10 pounds , I’ve followed the liquid intake the best I can, I’m drinking thinned/strained out broth/cream of chicken and Tomato Soup, I’ve been walking when I can. I’m so scared that I’ve hit a plateau already. I’ve gotten use to seeing a 2 pound loss every few days. What if I’ve only lost Water weight ? Should I be walking more? Trying to burn more calories? Am I being too paranoid?

You have lost 19lb since your operation? Or was some of that due to the pre-op diet?

It wasn't that long ago you lost about 10lb. Are you weighing daily? How long since you have lost weight?

I’ve lost 10 pre op, and 9 post . I’m weighing daily . The last time I lost 3 pounds was 11/3. I looked at the calendar and it’s only been 18 days. I know I’m being impatient. I’m also worried that I’m doing something wrong or not doing enough.

Have you progressed to the next stage in the post op food stages in the last week? If you haven't you may want to check in with your doctor or dietician making sure you are eating the correct volume of food.

Typically for a lot of people there is a stall when they progress to the next stage of food...liquids to pureed/softs foods and pureed/soft foods to solid foods. Hormonal issues may also cause stalls or high weight loss on the weeks (eg in the few days before a period is due to start).

It may also be useful if you share your typical day's menu with volumes so that some of the sleeve veterans may be able to offer the benefit of their experience and may some tweaks.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
