My sleeve was 12/22. I think I am likely overeating. I am finding it really hard to get in five small meals per day, even while working from home. I am hitting my Fluid intake without issue. I am likely going to be going back to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol diet where it makes sense - it is very high Protein, healthy fats, low carbs. I felt so great right out of the gate after surgery. Now, not so much. I just need to figure out how to follow the program better.


We are surgery twins!!! My sleeve was 12/22! I am actually starting body for life diet I used to body build and used that meal plan and workout so I’m doing it again. It’s high Protein low fat and carbs. I know I caught myself snacking small meals at first because I just couldn’t eat much and once I went to 6 small meals a day I broke the stall. It is hard to figure out food there are some really good YouTube videos out there that helped me

I struggling with my Water intake. Does anyone experience a funny taste in their mouth. I swear I hate it!!

I didn't notice a funny taste but still have difficulty drinking my Water. Before surgery, I drank it all day long. I just don't like it or want it.

I’m abt 6 weeks post op as well. I’m am able to tolerate foods. Just the Water. I tried the crystal like wild strawberry and was able to tolerate a full bottle of water. I’m afraid of becoming dehydrated. I’m doing okay with my Protein but liquids are very hard!! I hope you get better as well.

Hi, I had my sleeve done on Dec.27th. In 2 days I will be 4 weeks post-op. I've been walking more and more. I was wondering if anyone did anything else besides walking this early on? I was in the mood to play my Just Dance games on Xbox and WII but don't know that I should yet. Any comments or suggestions would be very much appreciated!!

I also had my surgery on 12-27-21. I’ve been walking as well and I also did a 1 mile hike which was amazing. I feel like I need to do more but I don’t want to over do it. I have an indoor cycling bike and I can’t wait to use it.

I had my surgery December 14th. I have lost 52 pounds but my food or liquids still feel stuck. I drink slowly and take sips and with my food I'm still doing smoshy foods because of the feeling. Is anyone experiencing this?

Hi Liz, congratulations! My RNY was 12/15/21. I haven’t been able to keep much down and extremely nauseous. I have been hospitalized twice for dehydration. I am struggling. I am still on liquids. Have you consulted with nutritionist where you had surgery ? I hope this gets better for you! If you want a Bari Buddy let me know.

Hey December folks! Just checking in to see how everyone is doing... As for me, weight loss seems to have slowed a bit, but is still progressing. I'm still finding it pretty hard to get Protein and Water in daily. I feel like its either one or the other, I just cant seem to nail both. Regardless, I'm now 45 days post op and 41 lbs down.

Hopefully everyone is safe, doing great, and well on their weight loss journey!

Sleeved Dec. 22nd and have only lost 15 lbs. a little disappointed. However, since I’m older it’s ok as I don’t want to have skin surgery. Having some difficulty getting all my Protein in, those drinks are expensive. Good to hear from you. Good luck everyone.

Hey! Sleeved 12/09/21. So far lost 44 pounds. Generally going okay, although I still find some foods really challenging (Bread of any kind, chicken, salmon).

It's weird - I feel like I can get more Protein and nutrition in if I have liquid meals (soup and shakes etc). If I have solid meals, I feel like Im able to eat so little, it hardly even feels worth cooking!

Keen to hear how everyone else is getting on.

15 lbs is still a great accomplishment, congrats!! I agree, Protein Shakes can be really pricey. I have found that juat about every pre-made shake has a powered alternative that is much more affordable. Takes less than 5 minutes to prepare them and averages about $1 per "shake" which is a much better value. Personally my "go to" is chocolate Premier Protein.

How are all of the December 2021 surgeries doing? It's the best thing I've ever done for myself. Wish I would have done this a long time ago. I've lost 32 lbs. It's still coming off slowly but again, that's ok.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
