Also very discouraged. in 4th week, following plan completely, only 7 pounds lost since surgery. Started at 288. Did lose 15 before surgery. It is not working for me. I get the 60 Protein grams, reluctantly drink the hated 68 oz of Water, and do not exceed 600 cals, mostly I'm below 500. Very sad.

What does your surgeon say? You might just be a slow loser. As long as you're logging literally everything that goes in your mouth and it's really 500-600 calories, it WILL come off.

I’m new here and my surgery is scheduled for September 15 in Sebastian, Florida. I’m anxious and excited to start my journey.

I'm with Sebastian as well. Just starting with my EGD this Friday. Surgery in November or December. How did it go?

My surgery is this Wednesday the 29th. I am on day 2 of liquid diet. It is especially hard to do this diet right now as I just recently lost my grandfather to cancer we didn’t know he even had until two weeks ago. Tomorrow is his funeral, the day before my surgery. 😔 I really hope to have the strength to recover well,I am emotionally tired and obviously not having comfort food or any solid food during this time is tough.

So sorry for your loss. Your definitely getting a crash course in it but one thing that is crucial to this journey is to learn to go through life events without revolving them around food. If you have a hard time with it post surgery, maybe the teams bariatric therapist would be able to get you in. I am an emotional eater and a boredom eater and I know I would need a little extra help getting through something like that. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I’m now 5 days post-op, and I’m really hungry. Is anyone else struggling? I’m so sick of Protein shakes! I’m tried broth, but nothing seems to fill me up,

I am 7 days post-op and same. I had 5 days of Clear Liquids and then added Protein Shakes and purred Soups. I am obsessively thinking about food. It's driving me crazy. I think it is more head hunger than physical hunger but how do you get past it?

I am two weeks post surgery and I have been sooo hungry. I kept being told I wouldn't be hungry after surgery... I have been constantly hungry. I just started soft solids today. I think it's a bit better... but even the refried Beans hurt a bit. I only had a tablespoon or two, eaten a tiny bit at a time. I guess, see if it gets better with solid food?

5 hours post op!! Little sore, but been home for a while and I’m propped up in bed and sipping on liquids and feeling good for the most part. You guys struggling with hunger keep reminding yourself what your reason was for doing it! Hang in there!

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
