I learned to sip sip on the Water while I am planning and cooking meals (I can drink right up till I eat but 30 minutes before If need be). I wouldn’t really feel thirsty then but if I don’t drink I will feel thirsty after I eat while I am waiting the 30 minutes. Plus it’s just another couple sips that adds up.

I have a big 24 ounce cup that I fill in the morning and make sure I drink that no matter what before noon. Then the same after lunch until 5pm. Then after dinner sitting down to watch TV or read a book, I have another. That gets me to 72 ounces and any Soups, teas, etc are a bonus.

the first thing I do when I get up in the morning, before drinking my coffee, is have 16-oz of non-carbonated, non-caffeinated fluids (for me, that means bottle of Bai (or similar flavored water)). I've been doing that for about five years. Doing that right off the bat has helped me meet my goal by the end of the day.

Sip, sip, sip all day long. Don't try to gulp down 4 oz at a time. Also, try adding lemon or a sugar-free flavored Water Enhancer to give it some flavor and it won't feel so boring. They come in 20+ different flavors and range from Crystal Light to Kroger, to Great Value (Wal-Mart) to Mio.

      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"
