  1. Sorry for the delay in responding to both of you. Yes, I do still have those clothes. I have more size 20 clothes available, and some 18's as well. Drop me a line & we'll see about getting them to you.
  2. 10oz of water was definitely not enough & probably caused dehydration. But have you been getting in enough water since?
  3. Ladies, I'm slimming down & would like to help out anyone in need of some clothes. I have a lot of shirts, probably at least 50. Too many to post photos. We can discuss what I have & I can send you pics. Available sizes are 26/28, 3X, 22/24 & 2X. I also have a few pairs of jeans. 22 & 20. Most items are in excellent condition. Some never worn or worn just a couple times. A small stain on a few of them. We all know how expensive it could be if we bought everything new during this journey. So I'm willing to let them go for almost nothing. If you're local (San Diego County) I can work out a deal. If you're not local I'll charge $15 - $35 to cover shipping costs mostly. Please send me a message here or email me at: [email protected]<script cf-hash='f9e31' type="text/javascript"> /* */</script> Thanks. Angie
  4. Beans are great at the soft food stage. They give you lots of protein. Just to clarify my earlier comment about calories... When in the early stages after surgery you definitely don't need to worry about calories. But once you're on the normal food things change. You're able to eat more dense food & more of it. The thing about the human body is that if you don't get enough calories in, your body goes into starvation mode & you stop losing weight. This is what my body has done. I've confirmed it with both my surgeon's nutritionist & my fitness trainer. I think we're all going to have stalls & the causes will be varied. But while you're wondering what's wrong with you it's nice to hear someone else's story to see if it fits to your situation. The best thing for you to do is consult with your surgeon's nutritionist (hopefully yours will have one). They're the ones that are trained in this stuff & will be the most likely to have the answer. But sometimes there is no answer. You just have to stick to the plan & keep plugging on until your body gets back on the program.
  5. I got the sleeve on Nov 10th. Would love to communicate with some fellow-sleevers. Our struggles can be a little different from those bypass folks.
  6. I totally sympathize. I'm at 18 weeks/4 months & am struggling to lose a pound. And my stall has lasted a month. Very disheartening indeed. My issue is that I'm not eating enough calories. According to my nutritionist I should be eating at least 800 calories at this stage. I feel like my life now revolves around food. I eat every 3 hours & eat as much as I possibly can. And I'm eating things that are probably not wise just to up those calories. has been helpful in keeping track of my meals but something has to give. This is one of those things that you just don't hear about. Good luck to you. I hope you find your solution.
  7. I'm moving down the scale & have some clothes that no longer fit. I would love to pass them on to someone who is doing the same. I have sizes 26/28, 3X, & 22/24's. Mostly shirts but a few pairs of pants & shorts too. There are just too many to take pictures of. Most were bought at either Avenue, Torrid, Steinmart or Lane Bryant. Some ordered online from Woman Within & Jessica London. Price negotiable. I'll be at the Post Op Support Group meeting at Pomerado Hospital this Thursday, 3/19, for any of you locals that are interested. Or you can message me here.
  8. "How in the world do I decrease the size of my picture so I can upload to my profile?" That was what I was thinking as I set up my profile. Thank you so much for the post. I would've been completely lost without it.
