    Energy? and transition

    Hi, So when will I get this energy everyone talks about? I'm 21 days post op, lost 20 pds so far. And I have days all I want to do is sleep! no energy. Also, I have one more week of soft foods and then I'm on my own the doc says. So what's the transition like? ( coming off puree / soft stage) Any pointers?

    confused....

    15 days post op.. 2nd day of Puree stage. I make sure what I eat is applesauce texture. I eat slowly. I wait between bites. I get about 2 tablespoons. I think I'm full. food seems to sit in upper stomach. i stop. and then 20 mins later, my stomach feels empty. So am I getting mixed signals?? confused.

    OOOPPS!

    Week 2 of liquid diet. I feel like it's been a bottomless pit when it comes to drinking my food. Until today....... today I learned the difference between emotional eating and actually being hungry.... Ouch!!!! Yea, my brain said, "you're hungry". my stomach said "nope!!". I didn't believe it cause I came out the gates never satisfied but it isn't a joke when you are actually NOT hungry. 2 more days until the puree phase, CAN'T WAIT!!!

    Hair Loss

    i've had a few surgeries in my life and never lost hair but I continued with my regular diet ( which was my lifestyle prior) my hair is so fragile and thin that I'm not sure what I could do if it were to go or what if the texture changed.... eeek!!! when I booked my surgery in back in may I ramped up on a bunch of vitamins: B12, multi vitamin, Biotin... up until the day of surgery. But now I'm not on any cause my doctor doesn't recommend supplements until around the 3rd week post op. ( little nervous ).
