It’s been 14 days. No issues getting Water or Protein. I’m actually not as hungry as the first few days but when I smell food I was certainly like a bite

Only 1 issue with nausea. I had some green tea with no sugar from Starbucks. I drank about half, and that came up. TMI

Weight loss has been great but I’m sure still primarily water but still 18 lbs

I have started heavy weights and that went well but tired quick. I’ll stick with one muscle group per day.

Good luck everyone.

Seems like you’re going well. Yay!! But watch the heavy weights. We’re usually advised to not lift anything over a few kilograms to begin so you don’t pull the stitches & staples holding your tummy together. Check with your medical team to be sure.

I love green tea & am so glad I had no issues drinking it post surgery. Wondering if you maybe drank a little too much too quickly. Or maybe it got too strong & bitter & upset your sensitive tummy as it seems to keep brewing even without the tea bag or leaves. Don’t give up on it though. Try it again next week.

Did the doctor who did the ESG give you the go ahead for heavy weights? ESG anchors and sutures until they heal (and possibly scar) are a bit precarious.

I know all doctors/surgeons have their own protocol, mine was don't lift anything heavier than a stand chair for a month so as to allow the stomach to heal from the anchors and sutures.

If you haven't got the go ahead for heavy weights from the doctor who did the ESG, please check in with them before doing any more sessions. I've seen a lot of failed ESGs (mine being one) and they fail for many different reasons.

Hi. Yes, my doctor approved full workouts.

It’s crazy the difference between all the doctors, including the post diet.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
      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.
