Just had a 4 ice cube, 1 packet of stevia, 6oz. Unsweetened almond breeze milk, whey Protein Isolate and a Dannon fit and light strawberry cheesecake 12oz smoothie. To be followed up by another 60 oz of Water before retiring to my bed tonight around 9 ish. Then get up every 2.5 hours to urinate. The morning will be early to drive 1 hr. to the hospital by 7:15 and finally start my surgery around 8:00 am CST.

Yes and yes. No problems with Proteins, had a hard time with the Water till I started drinking the crystal light fruit punch. I double the water when mixing. Getting over 80oz in a day now.

Hey! Late to the feed, but I had a sleeve on 12/31. First New Years Eve in a long time where I felt like I was working towards something instead of just wishing! I am having trouble getting everything in during the day. Between the two Vitamin shakes and all the Protein I feel so bloated. Have y’all noticed pain when you swallow certain things? I can’t have Water that’s too cold and Jello bugs me. I may just be weird. 🙃

No I haven't had a hot or cold problem at all. I did have a problem getting 64oz of Water in till I tried a suggestion from a friend that had a bypass 3 yrs ago. She told me to try fruit punch flavored crystal light. It's sugar free. Since I love fruit punch anyways I bought some. It was to sweet for me so I doubled the water and now get in over 80oz most days. Hope this helps you.

I definitely can't do really cold drinks or I can feel it all the way down. I've been using a 5 min interval timer on my watch to remind me to drink and that's been helpful getting my fluids in. I also use diluted Crystal light since water has been really bleh since the surgery.

How are you all doing now that we are 6 weeks out?

Overall pretty good, happy to finally be eating solid food. I guess I thought I would lose weight a little faster so I'm trying not to let my head get in my way. I keep telling myself if I lose 2lbs a week for a year that will still be over 100 lbs.
How's are you doing?

My loss has been slower than expected to. At 6 weeks I was only down 19 lbs. however I was in a crazy long stall where I lost < 1 lb for 3weeks. That seems to have broken in the last few days so fingers crossed.

I did have to stop weighing daily as it was too hard mentally.

other than that I’m feeling great.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
