Hi all! I had mine on Aug 27 and overall minus some soreness and just trying to figure things out it went ok. I kind of felt like I wasn't doing the best job but had a talk with my nutritionist and she felt like I was right on track so I will take it.

Started phase III yesterday and I have to say I was really nervous about it (dr. cleared me to start a day early). I have yet to throw up since surgery and I really didn't know what to expect. My first two meals went ok - I measured out a 1/4 cup and started there. I couldn't really tell if I was full and I never feel hungry - ever. I figure I'll just eat what I'm supposed to - put myself on a schedule and go from there.

I'm down 31.2 since I've started, 19.2 preop and then 12lbs since surgery (2 weeks today).

I guess I just have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I will lose weight... none of it seems real to me at the moment but I have hope that things will continue to progress over the next few months.

I will say that I'm grateful for this forum - I scoured it before surgery and again after as I was running into different issues over the past two weeks. It's been so helpful so thanks to everyone who has posted their experiences!

I drink my 64oz with Propel Water that has 15g Protein, 0 cal, 0 sugar, 0 carb. Had surgery on 8/28/20, no discomfort, no pain. liquid intake finally hit the 64oz this week. It took time for me to reach this goal. My goal is decreasing my BMI to 20 or less. BM x1 per day thus far. I avoid any sugar or soda to avoid dumping. Got Propel water from Sam's club.

July 17th was my RNY surgery! I’m down near 45lbs since starting my program last September. 20 for surgery, 25 after. I’m tolerating most foods with exception to Greek yogurt and Beans. I am aversive to Water and Protein Shakes in the AM. ☹️ but pushing through.

I’ve had some mood swings and light Hair loss. I am feeling pretty awesome and my clothes are getting pretty big!!! My goal is 125, my start weight was 213 so I have just about 43lbs to go!!! I should mention I’m a shorty measuring in at 5’1”!!

Yesterday makes 3 weeks out for me and I weighed in today at 28 pounds. I'm 3 pounds away from being back under 200 and I can't wait.

Awesome!! I did 20lbs prior and 25 since surgery! I just hit my 1/2 goal. I have a hard time getting things down in the mornings but am able to eat drink better after 11. I’m wearing “normal” size clothes for the first time in probably 8 years!

Mairead,

My RNY was August 20 and I also already have Hair loss. All my research says it’ll come back when nutrients level out. Don’t panic :)
