Hey y’all im new here. Sleeved 1/8. Currently on puree stage, moving on to soft/moist diet tomorrow! Im so excited but nervous. Im so ready to get into the gym. Id feel better about moving onto the next step knowing I could work out, at least the elliptical for now. Has anyone around my date started working out yet?!

I want to (sleeved 1/6), but I've been having gallbladder issues and have to go in for surgery again on Friday. :(

I was looking forward to food and exercise (strangely), but haven't been able to eat much at all. I went almost two weeks without ANY food because of this (don't recommend it, but I was so sick and hospitalized).

Hey! We are all sleeve siblings. I got my sleeve done January 7th and man its been a journey. I was struggling with the liquid phase and couldn't wait to move on to pureed. Little did i know, i ended up hating pureed and went back to liquids the first week. I needed to find a way to get all of my Protein in before i can eat something because after a bite of pureed food i was full for hours. My new thing is that i drink a Protein Shake in the morning (still takes forever), for lunch i have one of those tuna creation packs (high protein), and for dinner a meat that is high in protein or just another protein shake. it works for me and my pouch but can be different for others. This journey is actually interesting. Learning hat your body likes and doesn't like is very cool and im glad i did the surgery.

I went to the gym this morning and did some cardio. It was awesome!! If you were working out before the surgery, you will feel a difference for sure since we are lighter.

I mean I can only get down about 1/6th of it before I can't physically swallow more, or I end up drinking half of it and throwing up a good portion of it.
Protein Water won't work for me because it's whey.
My doctor is aware of it; I'll just heal a bit more slowly. I'm doing everything I can right now. My normal shake is 20g, and my body cannot handle the taste of it. We even tried Bone Broth Soups with protein in it, but my body says no.
Have you tried Fairlife shakes? They're called Fairlife Core Power and they're 26g of protein. I couldnt do the Premier Protein shakes, they were way to sweet and the aftertaste made me gag. Fairlife shakes just take like milk, or a milkshake even. Zero Protein Powder aftertaste. I tried it one day from a gas station when I forgot to pack a shake, then bought cases off Amazon. Never even got tired of them!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
