Wow, your the only other person I have noticed that mentioned the runny nose, it's so strange but I sneeze than blow my nose and it's gone. I'm going to have to ask the doctor about that one, weird.

Hahaha. Yes, sounds interesting doesnt it. Some people on this site have mentioned it as a sign of fullness for them also and in YouTube videos. I was in a virtual support group yesterday and one of the attendees reported that sign. The body is quite interesting.

Me too! 3 weeks today. I'm down 26.4 pounds(can't believe it) after going one whole week where I didn't lose an ounce! LOL . How are you feeling? I must say, I don't mind being on this liquid/puree stage.

YOu and I are in the same ballpark with weight and weight to lose. Are you exercising. I am on Day 8 and have lost 11.1 pounds. I am weighing every other day.

I'm going to stay off the scale, as its driving me crazy. I'm going try and stay off the scale until 5/12, my one month anniversary.

last week I lost 7 lbs and the last two days I've been the same weight. Yes, I do exercise. I've walked outside a couple of times, but mainly ride my peloton ( 30 min 3-5 times per week). I had to take a couple days off because I overdid it and one of my incision sites was hurting. Looking forward to weather situating itself so I can walk outside more.

My doctor recommended monthly weighing if I can stand it, but if not, to weigh every Monday and then if you forget, then wait until the next Monday. It is very hard not to weigh every morning!

Today I am one week post-op. I got to the hospital last week and got prepped and then surgery was delayed because of an emergency (which scared me a little because it was a patient from the previous day with a leak). I was the last one to go to surgery and the last one to leave so that made for a long day. I had my three bags of fluids, walked the halls and used the restroom and I was ready to walk out of there. Got to the hotel and had a popsicle and walked the halls, took my meds and slept great. I was told I had enough fluids I didn't have to focus too much on them that night. I had minimal pain except for gas pain and some nausea. Clear liquids for 5 days and all I drank was Water and diet cran-pineapple. I got to start full liquids Monday and I'm already so over it. I can tolerate one shake and maybe a yogurt a day and still not reaching my water goals but I'm getting those steps in and that helps so much with the gas and even nausea. But as of today I am down a total of 23.8 lbs since pre-op and 10.6 just since surgery, my BP is normal and off meds for that and also one of my insulins. I just really don't have an appetite to even wanna try anything.

I am doing well, this is my last week of puréed then moving on to soft. I just get “depressed” when I see how much others have lost since surgery, and I have followed everything exactly and have only lost about 15 pounds since surgery. But from the time I started my pre-op classes (August 2020) until now I have lost almost 40 pounds.

That is excellent! Do not get discouraged, it will come off!

I had mine April 1st I just started sampling food not suppose to I’m fine and finally when I did start solid foods diherrea went away. I started back to work three days last week was so scared of diherrea I was fine. Now I just have to stay focused to stay on the diet so I continue to lose. But basically I can eat everything. Im the same as you

keep in mind 2 lbs a week is 100 lbs a year. It's going to be a long term goal

I will, doctor said based on how incisions are coming along I should be fine. Of course won't start doing anything core/abs until at least 2+ more weeks

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
