Is it safe to exercise. 6 weeks post op. 600 to 700 calories per day. Mostly Protein. Can our bodies take exercise with the low calories we are having. I don't want to break muscle. Any advice xx

YES! Get moving! My doc said 10,000 steps a day to start. I was doing that by day 7 post op. Start walking, walking, walking. You can't do any weights yet, but you can do leg exercises, arm exercises, and climb stairs.

I could do pretty much everything except weights at that point (I think I had to wait eight weeks before doing weights)

I do spin and weights ... To make sure you do not burn muscle just make sure you have a Protein Drink after working out.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
