  3. July surgery roll call

    I am 17 days post op and down 35lbs since surgery. I feel great and Im currently in the pureed stage. Last night I ate 2oz of lemon pepper talapia and it was heaven!! My clothes are getting looser and people are noticing. So no complaints so far
  4. 3 months after VSG I'm down 133 lbs

    Im 11 days post op and down 29lbs. My starting weight was 485 and I can only hope to have the same results as you! Are you working out or just keeping a strict diet? Congratulations!!
  5. Hello everyone, I was sleeved on 7/25 and I have not taken pain meds or had any complications. Ive lost 29lbs and I feel great however I cant seem to get any type of full feeling. I drink 64 oz of water and crystal light a day as well as 2 premier protein shakes (11oz each, 30s of protein each) and 1/2 cup of soup. Is this normal? Does it change in the puree stage or at 6 week post op when actual food is introduced?
  6. Protein Drinks, and Protein Drinks and so on ...

    Hello! So I am currently 11 days post op and Im going through the same thing! Did you ever feel full once you went to purees or solids?
  7. July group

    Hello! Today marks 1 week since surgery for me and Im doing great! Still slightly sore but I stopped taking pain meds the day after surgery. Some days are easier to get liquids in then others and that seems to be the norm. Ive been drinking 2 Premier Protein shakes a day or swapping in some creamy soups. Ive become the blender queen! I walk at least a mile a day and Ive lost 25lbs as of this morning since surgery. So far no complaints here!

  10. July surgery roll call

    Heyyy! I am! 20 more days for me. In 9 days I have my pre op with my surgeon (Dr.Callery) and 13 days till my pre op with the Hospital. This is the 3rd surgery date Ive had and each time Ive felt different about it. This time I have noticed that there is less of an attachment with food which is good sine I used to be an emotional eater. My bag for the hospital is packed, medicines have been filled and just counting down!
