Stick to your teams plan. Its still early. The effort you put in now will pay off over the next few months. This surgery is 10%Physical and 90% mental. Hang in there.

I am 8 days post op and I’m over it!!! I haven’t been getting in my Protein. I am craving food and can’t eat crap. For all of this I would rather stay fat!

Sorry you are struggling. Many of us had buyer’s remorse right after surgery. This is a big adjustment.

Your new stomach is healing. At first, it’s hard to get your Protein and Water in. It gets easier over time. Hunger is real in the first stages. I was angry about seeing food commercials and anyone eating real food around me. Hunger is more manageable as you progress to real food.

Congratulations on your surgery.

Just curious - are you having complications that prevent you from getting in the Protein. Are you on shakes?

I am having surgery on the 13th ... this post is an eye opener.

No I don’t have any complications. Half of your stomach is removed so it’s hard to take in a lot of anything right now.

I will be glad when I progress to real food. Right now it’s just horrible.

Sorry to hear you're struggling. It wasn't that long ago I was right there with ya. It's definitely a process and can wear on you physically and mentally. If you're tracking with a food diary it may benefit you speak to your team for support as well as to address any issues you're having. This is a tough journey but you can do it... you're not alone!!! Congrats on your surgery!!!!!

I just had surgery a week ago so I feel you! Everyday I have to mentally tell myself that I did this for the right reasons and it will get better, because I know it will get better so hopefully you will eventually get to that point and see that. Right now every time I see real food I want it, but I know that’s only because I am on full liquids. Hopefully as you progress stages it will get easier, you got this!!

A suggestion that has really helped me, I purchased a clear Protein (isopure) and I add it to my water bottle and sip sip sip all day long, that way I get both my fluids and an additional 20 grams of protein just by drinking. It’s really helped me hit at least 60 grams of protein.

Do you have a Sams Club near you? They have Protein Water with no carbs and 15 g protein per bottle. And it doesn't totally taste like a$$...

Protein2O

I haven't had my surgery yet but have been drinking it for a while and certainly will use it after surgery.

Hang in there, it WILL get better!

      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

      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)
