My major concern at this point is that I haven't really had that stuffed/full feeling. I can't identify at all with not being able to eat and ounce or two. I wish I did. It makes me feel like maybe I was left with a larger sleeve.

CHRISSER27, I just had my first post-op control yesterday with my surgeon, and mentioned the EXACT SAME THING to him... that I was worried that I wasn’t feeling stuffed, and that I had not felt nauseous when eating, and that I was eating the full portions I have been assigned. His response: That’s great!!! That means you are eating slowly, taking small bites, and listening to your body. If you continue this way, you should NEVER feel nauseous.

So, Keep up the good work!

I have just upped my portion size to between 2-3oz and at 3oz I feel full. At 2oz I don't feel full but I don't feel hungry. So right now I just keep it in between those two sizes.

Just joined this site thanks to my mom who had Bypass about 10 years ago and found this place really helpful during her journey 🤗

I had my Sleeve surgery Jan 23rd. I feel like I'm doing okay but my body is SO tired all the time and I just really want to down Water like nobody's business. I really miss being able to drink as much of it as I want

I had a VSG on 01/06/23. I loss 38 lbs since the pre-op liquid phase. I consume 800-1000 calories a day and aim for 80+ grams of Protein a day. I feel good. I haven't had any issues with any foods. Well except that I cannot tolerate Protein Shakes at all so I rely on protein rich foods. I can also tolerate unflavored GENEPRO in my Crystal Light and some Protein Bars.

Hope everyone's doing well! I'm almost 7 weeks PO and feeling great. Everything I've eaten has sat well with me and I've been able to eat some of my favorite things again.

Hey! How is everyone doing? Today marks 2 months since my sleeve and I've loss almost 50 lbs from my pre-op diet. Overall, I feel great. I go for my blood work tomorrow so I hope everything checks out OK with that. I walk about 3-4x a week and attend a weekly Water aerobics class. I have to "UP" my exercise routine but as a mom of 3 (youngest being a toddler), it's just so hard to find the time. The weight doesn't slide off the way I envisioned, you definitely have to put in work to lose the weight but I have no regrets.

      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? 🤷‍♀️
