How's everyone doing so far? Today is full liquid day for me and I'm tolerating my shakes pretty well. I added Miralax to my shake this morning to make sure I dont get bound up from the Protein. So far so good, the restriction is real so baby steps, still having a hard time getting 64 oz of Water daily...... Other than that I found mio drops + caffeine and B12, my program allows small amounts of caffeine daily, so I've been putting 1 drop of mio into a medicine cup mixed with water and that really gets me going in the morning. Its crazy how such small amounts hit me now.

I'm only on day 3 at home and every day feels like every other. Got my 15 minute timer. Every time it goes off, I have one or two ounces of something. Reaching my goal of 64oz liquid 32oz of which is Water and 60g Protein. My doc doesn't have me on any Vitamins right now. She stopped them just before surgery. Never really had any gas pains, so thankful. Just ab soreness and pain getting up and down. No hunger at all so far, so sticking to this program is not hard, just monotonous and boring. Which I'll take over difficult and painful.

I agree, I crave nutrient's for energy but no desire for food at all ( its a weird feeling) and yes, the incision pain is awful, I have this one right by my belly button that stings like its being ripped apart any time I go to sit up or bend over to tie a shoe, the others are fine. But they say the incision they pull your stomach through will be the one that hurts the worst and takes the longest to heal.

Hi everyone!

Sounds like everyone is doing well :) YAY!

I has my VSG on the 21st as planned without complications. My 1 week post op appointment is on Wednesday.

Sometimes I sit here with my newish stomach and just wish I felt like I knew more of what I am supposed to be doing. All they say is sip, but no one says when to stop, and I don't feel full. I just go from drinking, to suddenly uncomfortable and overfull feeling. This is week 3 of only liquids for me. I am sick of all things that taste sweet, especially Protein Shakes. My brain keeps saying that if my pouch only holds 2 ounces then should I really be drinking as much as I am so quickly? The terror of possibly stretching my pouch already is steady in the back of my mind.

Also, head hunger, stomach growling, and anticipation are a constant!

Check in on my surgiversary people. How is everyone doing. Did post op appointment go well?

How is your diet going? I am on my soft Proteins only at 2oz quantities per meal. They want me to get 70 of Protein and at least 800 calories a day. I still drink 1 Protein Shake a day.

Sometimes I find myself wishing I could eat so much more than I can, but I can't find a logical reason why.

It has also sucked picking out a birthday cake for my daughter knowing that cake is now a memory for me.

I won't be back on a scale until Monday so I am looking forward to that.

So what's new with you guys?

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
