Hey guys, I’m hereeee 🤗 10 days out and feeling pretty great. I can drink everything as if all was normal but try to pace myself. I’m on purée and I’m usually full at about 2oz. Mostly I’ve been eating puréed chicken breast with garlic roasted hummus or refried Beans with some cheese and guacamole. I’m not sure what I want for dinner tonight. It’s so weird to see such small portions and there are times where I wish I could eat regular food in regular portions. I noticed I really enjoy watching my husband enjoy his food. It’s weird but so satisfying.. I’ve been trying to get all Of this into a routine.. not really having luck with that yet. What are your routines like?

I'm having a hard time drinking Water and Protein Shakes, anyone else? but I can drink gatorade and greek yogurt pretty easily.

I find the Protein Shakes taste awful now. Just have to power through them.

Is anyone else losing really, really slowly? The scale is moving downward, and I can tell my pants are much looser, so I know I’m making progress. But at the current rate of weight loss, I’m only at about 1.5-2 lbs a week. I don’t know if this counts as a stall, since I haven’t yet had a big drop in weight. Is anyone else experiencing the same? It’d be nice to know I’m not alone.

I too am here!!! I had my surgery 2/28. Things have been pretty good! No nausea or vomiting. I'm just tired of these Clear Liquids and I have another week to do...This is insane LOL.

My sleeve was complete on the 27th, released 2 days later due to severe spasms when drinking. My surgeon did not want to release me from fear of dehydration. I'm finally home now, today is my last day of Clear Liquids. Full liquids during next 16 days then progress to soft foods. I still struggle to get in 96 ounces of liquids. The surgeon repaired a hernia that he said would've been bad if not repaired.

Blended vegetable Soup is on my list of full liquids. Does anyone have any blended Soup recipes? I don’t have a blender but willing to purchase one. Also, please share what has gotten you through this stage. I'm not hungry per se but I'm ready for the change in foods.

I wish that I could move to full liquids!

We have the same surgery date! It looks like you've lost 25 pounds in 3 weeks; that is way better than I'm doing; 12 pounds in 3 weeks. I was getting on the scale every day, I'm now going to just weigh on Mondays.

Wow, that does seem like a long time on clear liquids; I had Protein Shakes starting the next morning, although I could not get it down. Good luck! Can you tolerate broth? That might give you a little break.

It's all of the fluids that you were given in the hospital. My weight was higher after surgery and stayed that way for about a week. It'll go away.

I am definitely in the slow losers club. I'm 2 weeks out today and have lost only 6 lb. I am not obsessing. I know it's a process and my body will lose on it's on pace. I remain positive.

Checking in on everyone's progress. I definitely am depressed more now than ever. Thinking what have I done. I know it's part of the process but it sure does suck. Can't wait till I can at least have soft foods.

I feel you.

I'm a week out today so tomorrow I get to chew on my Vitamins and calcium chews, sick of these liquids.

Yes, it’s 26 lbs now. But 25 of those were post op. I gained after surgery and it took 2 weeks to lose that. Now I’m down almost 2 lbs below my day or surgery weight. Aunt Flo just paid her monthly visit, so I’m not expecting any loss for at least another week. Blah.

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

      I wish there was any obvious, easy soloution to the whole bony butt situation!

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

      3. biginjapan

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
