Sept 20th was my SD and I need some company



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery, sleeve, 7 days ago and now on full liquids. Lost 12 lbs so far. Weighing on fri or sats only, so far self control is ok, I’m not a scale person. Getting annoyed w liquids to “eat”, lose confidence and have regrets each day but it usually only happens at night when my house goes to sleep. I’m a mom of 4 and just need some hand holding or someone to vent with. I have tried a purée or two but it hurts to go down. I was told I can take a tsp once a day but I feel like the opening to my stomach is swollen or something. Even liquids hurt a lil and I’m surly siping. Still have gas pains too. Any one who’s made it to the end of the tunnel, any advice would be ok, or if anyone can relate to the “pain” and the bottom of the center of my chest, very top of belly when swallowing.

You are in THE worst of it and almost done. Everyday you will feel better and better. I kept a journal to look back upon to remind myself of what I had overcome, and the improvements I had made. If you dislike writing do a little video journal for yourself. I found a hobby too, and lots of non food rewards. You are a butterfly coming out of a chrysalis! This yucky part is almost done. Of course if you continue to have pain and can’t swallow liquids, call your doctor immediately! I took longer at each stage too:)

You really made my day and night with those words. I’ve read it a few times already and feel a lil better each time. Thank you so much! And I literally grabbed a notebook just now and wrote out today and yesterday’s feelings and things and I see the differences already. I did feel worst yesterday than today and k tolerated some Protein Shake this morning compared to yesterday. THANK YOU!!

Just keep drinking! Also there’s a short weight loss stall near you. Not to worry about, ignore the scale when it happens. Look up 3 week stall on here to see more. You’ve got this!

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
