Hey guys! I'm new here so first I would like to say hello to everyone :)

I had my gastric sleeve done Aug 4th. At first I didn't struggle with keeping hydrated but the last few weeks I have been struggling getting in about 40-45oz a day. I try my hardest to keep drinking Water, but sometimes I will catch myself just carrying around my water bottle but forgetting to actually drink. I hardly feel thirsty which I think is my problem.

Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have any advice for me?

I'm bad at remembering to sip sip sip all day like is recommended. So I'll instead set goals for myself like within the next half hour I'll drink my entire 12oz bottle of Gatorade zero. And I'll go through the day drinking bigger chunks every so often instead of constantly sipping.

In the first few months post surgery i set a timer on my watch to remind me to drink.

I am just 2 weeks out, and I haven't had any issues yet, but maybe you're just not into Water right now? Have you tried drink mix packets in your water? I find that I get sick of plain water so I make sure a lot of my Fluid is Decaf coffee mixed with Protein Shake, or water with a drink mix packet (I don't like Crystal Light but the Starburst ones are great!). I am able to get about 80oz of water or more a day if I like what I'm drinking. Also, consider the temperature. Would an insulated thermos help it be more appealing?

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
