your stomach is pretty swollen the first few weeks from the surgery so it doesn't have much capacity. So yes - as time goes on and the swelling goes away you can eat more. You probably haven't stretched it. Just make sure you're following your plan - just because you *can* eat something doesn't mean you should. I still watch my volume at over 4 years out..

and yes - weight loss slows down quite a bit after the first few months.

I know today I woke up hoping to stick to my plan from now I've been slacking tbh
So would I still loose weight ? When do I stop loosing weight ? I'm scared I won't loose anymore :(

Are you eating Protein first? I know if I ever go away from that golden rule I can overeat and eat things that I don’t “need”. I’m in my 6th month and I could eat more than I should pretty easily. Lean protein first. Then add veggies. Then a whole grain carb if you’re still hungry. And don’t forget to drink a lot before you eat. Get the Water in. Log your food if you stopped. It will tell you how many calories you’re really having.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

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

        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.

      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)
