I'm only to have 64 oz of h2o, and four 2 oz cups of Premier Protein shakes for two weeks. Everyone in the house is eating my favorite foods. I have no stomach pains except for gas. I've been taking 3 gas x chewables as a dose to rid me of gas and bloating. I have Crystal light and shakes and fat free popsicles. Did anyone else want to eat food before it was time? I think I drink too much at once last night. My stomach held it, but I don't want to stretch it or burst my staple line.

How much longer before you progress to the next stage? If its a day or two chat with your surgeon or dietician they may say go ahead (or not). It's hard when we miss the sensation of chewing as well as the pleasure or relief (if a stress eater) that food gave us. It will be a little easier if you find something to distract your mind and hands at the same time.

No doubt there are various post op guidelines when the food stages are introduced at different times, do not progress faster than your post op guidelines unless you have approval from your surgeon or dietician.

While you don't feel any pain it doesn't mean your body has finished healing. Do not compromise your health or future viability of your new small stomach by progressing with approval.

Yes there were a lot us who felt hungry in the all liquid phase. That will decrease quite a bit when you start eating soft foods. I’m 3 weeks out and don’t feel the hunger pains I felt the first couple of weeks. How many days post op are you?

Oh my, yes of course. :D

Hang in there. Count the days. You'll soon be done with the immediate post-op diet.

NO NO NO NO NO

You are not hungry that is you mind messing with you! Take it slow and stay on course if not you will be paying for it big time!

Also you i assume are early in this, Get away from the feeding freenzy in your house, Go read a book while the others eat, Go outside and sit on the deck. it will take some time for you to whip you minds ass and not be bothered by food around you, but at this point way to early and it will mess with your head.

Good news ahead, eventually about 4 months you will not be bothered with seeing food or around it.

Good to know because I’m very hungry now and I have another week on liquids.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      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...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      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.
