I was moved to soft foods this week, and I just put in my grocery order with things like lump crab meat and lean deli meats and cheese to make roll ups- I can’t wait! I had a Turkey meatball and low sugar sauce that I made with a spoon of low fat ricotta and I felt like I was getting closer to normal!
does anyone else’s clinic count weight lost from the first day of the liquid diet? I’m not sure if that’s weird or not

Yeah I think lots of them count that MomaDance! Makes the results look better I suppose? What was the date of your op? I am just moving on to soft foods and loving every bite. Tasted a teeny bit of the bolognese sauce I made for everyone else's dinner this evening (can't cook without tasting!) and it was such a flavour explosion.

Don't have the surgery. I did and I'm not losing any weight... It's WAY more trouble than it's worth.

Oh man I’m so sorry to hear that! How far out are you from your surgery?
I hope things get better ❤️

Just checking in again today my sweets. Still stuck at a 4lb loss 18 days post op and really needing my whoosh now! Am taking in about 600 calories a day and around 60g Protein. Pain is getting better every day - the only time I notice it now is when I straighten up too quickly after bending over, or when I try to sleep on my side at night. Hunger was less noticeable yesterday - it has been hard, so nice to see it subsiding at last. All in all, everything going the right way, kind of apart from the weight, which has to come soon, right?? Just about to start a big Sunday roast here, which I will puree for myself. Also boiling ham for lunches (everyone else) during the week so I will use the stock to make some 'ham', lentil and veg Soup for my own lunches!

How has everyone's weekend been so far?

That sounds yummy Spinoza. Good to hear you are feeling well. I’m going to make the ricotta bake, but I’m adding ground turkey to the marinara. I’m going to portion it out into some 1/2 cup ramekins for my meals. I’m starting week 4 on Tuesday. With clothes on I weigh what I did last Tuesday, so I’ve lost at least 2 pounds since then. I’ll be 1 mouth out on the 9th.

Your food sounds delicious too OG! Full of Protein too. Fingers crossed for a good loss for both of us this week. 🤞

Daisy and Sunshine, I also had my gastric sleeve surgery on the 30th plus a hiatal hernia fixed. I am surprised with how much pain I am in. No interest in food yet, just trying to get rid of this gas, somehow get comfortable, and drink Water.< br>
My surgery was 11/30. It's been rough. Was supposed to be bypass but due to previous trauma surgery too much scar tissue. So doc did sleeve he will do my Hernias (from prior crash) with a bmi of 35. Food isn't seeming to interest me either and getting in all that liquid gags me. Just so you know, you ARE NOT alone! Blessings [emoji119]

Had a bad day. I feel like I really wanted to eat too much. I didn't feel the same fullness today for some reason. That has me scared. I've been stuck at the same weight for 2 weeks. I know I need to trust the process, but at the moment, I'm wondering if this is going to work for me.

I hear you. It all feels so overwhelming! I still can’t figure out when I am full and I haven’t shed the amount of pounds that I expected. I am starting to think that is much more person specific than they say. Maybe not gerri g on the scale everyday would help? I heard that no one regrets it so, I am hanging on to that for now.

Hi! I'm a newbie here. Have VSG on Tuesday November 30th. My surgery and recovery from surgery is going very well with the exception of a nasty cold. I have my first followup appt today and I'm hoping my doc will give me something to get over this mess.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
