Hi all- just checking in for my first official Scale Victory.  Today is exactly 2 months post op and I am down 50.4 pounds!  (Including the 15 pre-op).  I lost 25 in month 1 and only 10 in month 2 so this month has felt like it took forever to get to 5

I am 7 weeks post op and haven't posted in awhile.  My NUT wants me to be at 90/90 and I focused so much on getting 90 protein, increasing my meals from 1 ounce to 2 ounces per meal and all the other pieces that I let my water drop down under 30 oz....

Hi all- my recovery has been amazing so far (47 lbs lost, 32 since surgery) so I hate to complain...but I am starting to feel MORE tired (not less).  I know it is because I am only getting about 40 gm protein and 50 oz water.  I am truly trying to do m

hi all- I have searched and can't find it.  Where did you all find the banner/ticker that records your start/ goal.....and then some of you have info on there as well.  I'd like to start that sometime. Can you help?  Thanks!

Hello fellow sleevers- I am one week post op and so far no medical people have asked me my goal weight.  I had planned to shrug and say "it's up to God".  But it is encouraging to see so many of you hitting your goal weight...so I am that noting I shou

6th day VSG post op and I noticed that my abdomen (where me incisions are) is kind of balloon-like when I kind of push on it with my finger.  People talk about gas, bloated, etc.  I don't feel sick, I am getting more liquid and protein each day (up to

I had surgery yesterday about 4 pm. 30 minute procedure and my doc has us stay one night in the hospital to be sure we are hydrated (better chance to not be dehydrated since we didn't drink anything the day before and our tummies may not like anything

i have never had surgery or been hospitalized so it's all one big unknown....but I trust my surgeon and I trust the process and once I am through the surgery I will keep saying to myself "This too shall pass".  So I think I am ready to go.  I show up @
