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!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
