That depends a lot on each person, overweight...I think it's better not to get obessed with the weight loss and focus on following your surgery plan. I f you do that I'm sure that you'll succeed 👍

With my surgery coming up on the 18th, I'm thinking about logistics. I live 2 hours from the surgery spot. Anyone know how long you need to wait until you drive that far?

Hi everyone
I am having my surgery on the 13th January. Already started the “Optifast” liquid diet, good way to get used to the reduced meals

Excited for you! Can't wait to hear how it goes

On Jan 3rd I had my sleeve and so happy that everything was good. Less pain than I thought but take into account that every person is different. Now, already at home, starting my first week diet post op.

Good luck everyone!

After you early Jan patients get your stomachs transformed (congratulations!!!!) And are feeling strong enough, I'd love to hear your recommendations for what I should have on hand for my first week at home.

Hello! Thought I would start out this group as I have a surgery date for Jan 4, 2022!! I'm so excited and a bit anxious for the pre-op diet - I will be starting it while on vacation - but what a great way to say Hello to the New Year!!

How are you doing? Pls update us. I had mine on Nov 1. Still cant make my protein/water goals and still hurts to eat. Still on puree and some soft foods. But im loving it! Congrats!

Hello! Unfortunately, my surgery has been cancelled until further notice (due to COVID). I have been reading and following the Pound of Cure book/eating plan; however, and I feel really great as a result of that. So I'm doing my part to lose what I can while I wait.

I wish I was on your level right now - but I'll get there, soon enough!

      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.

      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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
